Being Frank With Fenway Ed

We have been doing this league long enough that I think we can all sense certain trends. Yankee Mike overvalues Yankees players, 3K overvalues lead off hitters with speed but no batter's eye. This got me thinking - one month into the season what have been the least surprising moves made by team owners and what do I think will happen over the remaining five months? I have a few:

If I Could've Laid Money On...

- Yankee Mike dropped Javy Vazquez (I guess he forgot that Vazquez can't handle the pressure of a big passionate market)
- 3K picked up then dropped Juan Pierre
- I would put too much emphasis on young, unproven guys with TREMENDOUS upside

What I would like to lay money on...

- Tallcorn Cobras will trade one of their two catchers for a mint, and it won't be a former #2 overall selection
- PG will complain that not enough people comment on the blog posts

You can add "SwinGERS will finish out of the money" to things that are certain.

Mike said...

You can add that the Rockpile and its ownership will be furious that other teams seem to have their best weeks against him, when in reality, he is just angry that his offense consistently underperforms.

That means you MARK TEXEIRA!!!!

Please add that the Salt Creek Sluggers, while under new management, will repeat the sins of the past and give up on at least one player too early ala cutting Mark Reynolds AND Aaron Hill last year in week 2!

Coming out swinging.. A little sickness gets the juices flowing...

I would like to lay money on PG and 3K will get into a nice disagreement that contributes 30 posts to one blog post

I would never have laid money that we would go over 12 hours without 3K commenting on a post that involved two of his favorite things - baseball and gambling.

Jim said...

Yeah, 3K has been conspicuously absent....then again, so has his team.

HEY OH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please add that C&A will never make any of the weekly pitching superlatives.

SwinGERS said...

When should we start being concerned by 3K's silence?

Good stuff PG ... could I have any more key injuries? Is this going to be my entire season?

Btw, love the logo, Ger.

Cornholers said...

One busy day away from the blog and the search party is sent out. I got a frantic text and call from PG this morning wondering where his most loyal reader/commenter has been?

I'm here. Coming off a big night by the Cornholers, things are looking up and I only have one thing to say.....

Here's a big F U to Ed. Pierre will be just fine.
