Today -- Bob Howry, for two more "low grade" minor leaguers. The first two, I'm fine with, even though I feel Williams could have received a little bit better than minor leaguers for him. However, the Howry trade was unnecessary, especially with him starting to come around.
Also, having Crede at Third is nice. Doesn't make up for the idiot of trades doing what he did with Bobby.
Kenny was just hoping to use the sound and fury to make people think he was trying to do something. Problem is that there were 5 players who they really needed to ship out of town, and only two of them (Durham, Lofton) went. Thomas, Foulke, and Clayton are still there, still sucking up cash and being generally big useless lumps.
But then really he bit the big one and swallowed it the minute he gave up THREE prospects for Todd F'n Ritchie. Anything after that is just digesting the big one.
You never know when you'll meet that special someone... the someone that's mysteriously blind to your flaws. or, you know, stupid enough not to realize that yes, you really are that cynical.
Both HR ratios are about the same, one HR every 8 AB. He has come up to bat less at home, thus has had less opportunity to hit the homers. Plus, if you have Barry Bonds, wih a fence 300 feet away, do you pitch to him?
