2010-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)And the ex-Met Bell doesn't punch out relatives ....
(dianagramr from NYC)
I love Kevin Towers, I really do. And I want him to get another job as a general manager, because he deserves. The fact that the man who acquired Heath Bell and Royce Ring for Jon Adkins and Ben Johnson may be a GM in the NL West, and not on the Padres, scares me big time. But as an analyst I love it, because the NL West should become even more ridiculous. (Marc Normandin)

Not that I'm a big Royce Ring fan or anything, but this was something that was an apparent problem as early as Damaso Marte getting hurt. (Steven Goldman)
