I'm a toe-sucking biscuit who loves to megafuck Ed Kotch.
I went all these years and had no clue. If you have nothing better to do, click the above link to see what you are. Hopefully you don't megafuck Ed Kotch.
I'll save you some time, they are good. Humber and Hernandez, in particular, are really good. One thing stood out though, he had this to say about Humber:
If all goes according to plan, he should be ready for Major League action sometime in 2006. I don't think he will turn into Aaron Heilman.
At this point, would it really be that bad? Heilman has done the impossible and begun to endear himself to Mets fans and reporters alike. In a 2 - 2 tie, he came in with the bases load and two outs in the fifth inning with two outs, and saved the day. He showed balls the size of Looper's enormous head and finished the day giving up only one hit in 3.1 innings. Heilman is actually a go to guy that I look forward to taking the mound. What's next? The Yankees in last place? Oh, they are. Life is good. Life is good.
have to confess that watching George Steinbrenner's zillionaires struggle this spring has given me much more pleasure than the Sox's uneven early-season defense of their title.
When Kevin Brown was spinning a nifty eight-hitter with one out in the first against the D-Rays on Tuesday, I was positively bouncing off the walls, calling friends, alerting them to the 15.7-million-dollar man's latest disaster. In getting blasted by Tampa Bay, Brown fell to 0-4 with an 8.25 E.R.A. Most pitchers would have been mercifully pulled after being lit up for six runs in the first, but you could almost see Joe Torre saying, "Nope, you're gonna earn some of that money today, Big Fella, by taking one for the team."
What can Brown do for you? Well, to sum it up, he can break his non-pitching hand in a late-season tantrum, get shelled in a Game 7 loss and allow opponents to hit .380 against him to start 2005.
In a recent letter to the Diamondbacks, Boras attempted to restate Drew's allure as a special player on par with the skills of a young Alex Rodriguez or Miguel Tejada, but Kendrick said such comparisons are "clear speculation."
Dealing with Boras is probably a horrible experience, but having him continually compare his unproven players with superstars has to be grating. For every one guy that is highly touted that succeeds, twenty fail. He does a lot of his clients good, but he does plenty bad. I bet Kevin Millwood wishes Mr. Boras was not his agent.
