“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”
Joe Morgan and Billy Wagner. For what could have been and for what it was. grrrr...
". I guess the rest of the world didn't get the memo that if you were black and from the Caribbean you just don't count. "
Don't tell that to Torri Hunter, he had a rant about grouping the black latino's with the Blacks. He said something like they weren't real blacks or so.... It's not like we can't tell by names like Rodriguez, Martinez, Ortiz, etc.
Joe Morgan hands down.
The sad thing is that it didn't have to be that way. Any problem he had with management could have been forgotten if he hadn't taken every opportunity to trash Houston, whether it was the city, it's weather, it's people or it's baseball team.
I believe most of Houston would have been like me and embraced him as a former star player had he not felt the need to play the victim, loudly and repeatedly.
I could not stand him as an announcer for that reason, he got a ring with Cinncy, I don't understand the Hate for Houston.
For me it would be Ezekiel Astacio. I hated it every time he touched the mound. Always heard about his "stuff" but never seen it.
Ed Wade: "I hated Chacon. He was such a choker!"
"Why? What did he do?"
He thought he was God's gift to baseball. He wasn't that good. We were with friends at a game once and her brother worked for the Astros. While we were waiting for him to come out, here comes Andujar asking us if we want his autograph. We were like no, we're waiting for someone. He puffs out his chest and goes to other people asking them if they wanted his autograph. Total idiot.
"Oh yeah! My father called him "walkin' underwear."
