Doubt Ed Wade can understand or spell OBP. But he is really good at identifying, capturing and retaining mediocre players.
"And in the years to come, the Hall and its voters may come around to finally include Ron. It won’t mean much, though, at least to me (and I suspect a lot of other Cubs fans). We’ve always known Ron was deserving, and didn’t need the V.C. to tell us. And it won’t be the same, to celebrate without Ron being there to celebrate as well."
My thoughts exactly upon hearing the news.
The brilliance of Joe Posnanski is that you think he's triplets when he's actually three sets of triplets. He's just that good.
I just today learned that you are behind the Dodgers blog Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness. I would recommend it even to non-Dodger fans. Keep up the good work.
I think jlister is correct on both counts.
It could be worse, you could be an Astros fan, like me. No prospects to speak of in the system.
Doug Pappas would be proud. Good job, Neil.
This was an especially good one.
Small side note on small sample sizes. In the 1984 AS game, Rickey Henderson came to bat in the 9th against Rich Gossage, then of the Padres. Al Michaels said there's not a hitter in the league he would rather have up against Gossage at that time. That's when the graphic came up showing Henderson was 0-8 with 8 K's career against Gossage. Much laughter ensued. And Henderson promptly struck out.
This should be re-titled "Colletti Repeats Winter Stories About NL West." I do not mean this as a dig at you John, as I think it's pretty damn funny that Ned has not one original thought about his division. That he's willing to share anyway.
Put me in the disappointed camp. These new cards have less information than the DT cards and this is really sad.
No, one cannot get carried away linking to Joe Posnanski.
I don't really see this as being about politics. If they were asking for donations to support/oppose a war, then I'd agree. Besides, it's their site and they can do as they please.
I foresee a Nancy Kerrigan style attack on Ordonez' knee come late August.
Do yourself a favor and click the link to the Joe Posnanski blog in the SS section. Hilarious.
Having seen Ambriz play at UCLA where he was the DH on the days he didn't pitch, I think he's got a chance to stick as a mop-up man who can also come off the bench as a pinch hitter. Could be useful to a National League team like the snakes if they feel the need to carry 12 pitchers.
"Lyon isn’t a bad pitcher, a durable middleman whose command keeps improving; he’s just a pointless acquisition for the Astros."
Just slightly less pointless than hiring Ed Wade to be your GM.
Most of the Dodgers fans I know (I live in LA) don't even think Kemp is the second best outfielder on the team.
Is it wrong of me to hope Brett Myers got punched in the face by someone much bigger than him?
"He’s no Manny, but he helps plug the whole created by his suspension a bit."
Only if Torre plays him instead of Pierre.
"The Marlins don't think that there is nothing unusual about their 11-3 record, the best in the major leagues."
You are correct sir.
Kevin, can I bet $10 on "Any other carbon based life form" for the Nationals against your $5,000?
Kind of sad to think that the stereotype is still alive. Jackie Robinson, Reggie Jackson and many others should have dispelled that myth long ago.
As some who formerly worked in the media it always troubled me when stories that were incorrect were not later corrected unless outside pressure was brought to bear on our company. So I'm quite pleased to see a reporter, on his own initiative, make the admission that he got it wrong. It happens. Way to be stand up about it.
I\'ll bet the under on Bradley\'s production and playing time as predicted by Pecota. I don\'t think it will be close.
I see this is on EPSN.com today, as well. I didn\'t realize that BP was once again working with ESPN. That\'s how I found y\'all in the first place. Congrats on that and the BBWAA. - Denis
Second that. Bigger, Faster, Stronger was very enlightening.
