Before Pablo, the Giants had not produced an above average position player since Bill Mueller. Debating whether or not to play Fred L is indictment enough of Sabean. Bochy was given a pile of turds to rearrange. A team with no power, no avg, no OBP. How this collection of players devoid of any offensive skills all ended up on 1 team is staggering. Never seen anything like it outside of an expansion team.

For an even less enlightened view of the entire PED issue, check out the site http://www.onlybaseballmatters.com (OBM for short - might as well be Only Barry Matters) Site owner Perricone can write, but, well, here\'s him: \"I’m OK with sports stars who may not be perfect. I do, in fact, want our athletes to do amazing things, and I don’t really care how they go about doing it. It has always been obvious to me that to perform at the highest levels in athletic competition, extreme measures have always been taken.\" Check out the commenter +mia if your eyes need a good bleeding.

\"Francona\'s sending his injured hurler back to the mound to start the fifth\" You\'ve taken people to task for saying that Manny quit on the team based on what they observed. If you have some information that Beckett\'s injured, beyond your results based conclusion, divulge it. I agree on the umps. Ball/strike calls are the central controlling aspect of the game, and humans are physiologically unequipped to accurately make the correct calls. They guess because they have to. Like Whitey said, \"It\'s a good thing they have only have 2 choices to make.\" They then compound their innate human inability with arrogant nonsense like making the pitcher \'prove\' he can throw strikes, giving calls to veterans, and refusing to call a strike over the plate if the catcher set up elsewhere. The \'human element\' argument was born of necessity - there was no way to correct the problem. There is now, and it can\'t happen too soon.

A friend asked if I thought Manny would hold a grudge against the team when they put him on waivers a few years ago. My answer was that Manny couldn\'t even hold a thought.

From the above referenced article: \"In 2003, James identified fifty-three instances in which Red Sox players had demonstrated a game-altering failure to hustle; twenty-nine of them involved Ramirez.\" Being a great hitter does not negate a players obligation to his teammates, employer, and the paying customers to play the game. Any team that signs him deserves him.
