I never got to see too much of Melky before, with him being in the AL for most of his career. But in the games I've seen and the highlights and stuff, he's never seemed like a dude who was having fun. But he does seem that guy now. Smiling in the dugout and talking to teammates and stufff. I think that he's enjoys his success and wants it to continue. And that the players on the roster seem to like him a lot.
All pretty important factors when you're thinking about locking a guy up long-term. I like what I've seen.
Chef...youth is one thing...but where they hit is another.
I'm not sure you would find many other teams (other than the G-men) who would hit Melky-Pablo-Posey 3-4-5.
Fair enough, Sabes.
But still that's three very young hitters hitting somewhere in the middle of the lineup. Any team would have them somewhere between 1-5, I would think.
Well if yesterday was a preview of what is to be this season, I'll take it.
6-14 3rbi's 2 runs
That would be very convenient: A future outfield including a productive Cabrera and a futuristic Gary Brown...
They kinda need it, antica.
There aren't any OFers under contract for next year. Unless you count Nate and Blanco, who I don't think you want to pencil in for 150 starts.
" They should have gone after Sizemore"
Sizemore is on the DL. Had back surgery in March, probably gone for at least half the season.
he needs a body replacement.
Sizemore will never be productive again. He's just another Nick Johnson.
Career .400 OBP.
