Originally posted by WhitebaconI wouldn't be opposed to trading Sosa if we could replace adequately replace him in out in right. The man is breaking down at such an increasing rate.
And I think the rest of the league knows this. He's just not a good baseball player anymore. And, if he was any kind of a stand up guy, he'd take the blame when he screws up. But he doesn't, and Sammy only seems to care about Sammy. How about running hard in case your home run ball hits the top of the fence?
This, I don't agree with. Sammy had a bad year at the bat. Guys have bad years. He had one. But Damn, he played one of his best defensive years ever. I saw him hustle all the time. I can't fault him except that he never got going and struck out a lot more than usual.
But he got beaned early in the year and then he had "The Sneeze" and never came back. But I think after a good rest and recovery, he'll be back to good form next year. He is plus 35, so for most players who aren't on the super sauce, that means on the downward part of your career, but I'll take him for a few more.
I agree with Moises going tho...
I think Steve Stone is the best Color Analyst ever and sure hope he doesn't leave.
Now, is it ok for me yell THEATRE! in a crowded fire?
Didn't Chip also get on Cubs management bad side when he gave some criticism... I like the Cubs but they can be so whiny at times.
This season was so disappointing, they just had to go .500 in the last 10 days and they were in... Cubs always break your heart.
smark/net attack wienerville advisory holds at ORANGE alert - High (JBL is STILL WWE champion and now smarks arch enemy HHH is the World Champion. Major red threat, but the undercard seems okay. The alert holds... for now)- 9/19
I'm grudingly a believer in Mazzone's ability as a pitching coach, so I don't think Byrd'll tank in Atlanta. That being said, I also don't see him winning more than 20 games there. 15, tops, and he'll be close to a .500 winning percentage.
