Heartless players

Recommended Posts

Seriously now, which players do you see no passion or heart out of for the game?

I see the following

Koch

Daubach

Olivo

Thomas

Harris

Anyone I am missing?

Yes.

One other person that isn't a player.

Jerry Manuel.

Not sure how you can say Koch has no passion for the game. The guy wants a shot to go out there and redeem himself everynight. He just doesnt have the arm strength or ability right now to do so. Olivo just can't hit any breaking pitches, otherwise he is a solid player that tries. Right now, I think its less about 'heart' and more about gametime performance. Right now, no one in this lineup is performing, or did when they needed to

I really dont think we have a shot to see if Willie has any heart to, so i count him out.

Well for Billy, I'll give him that. But the guy has to put movement on where he points his cannon. Seriously, nothing will be accomplished if you just be a flame thrower with no location.

This is my list

Robbie Alomar

Bartolo Colon

Really? I am suprised by that. Explain yourself, friend.

Willie is a little pathetic. Hits .373 in the minors and hits .093 in the majors...catch my drift? :huh:

-Well Bartolo Colon is kind of a mystery, he doesn't really act like he's really pumped up. Buuuut that might just be the way he is and he might really care, I just don't think so.

 

-And I just don't think that Robbie cares that much about winning anymore.

"Been there, done that"

 

-Willie gets one at-bat a month, not his fault. I really think he loves to play and does have a lot of heart.

-Colon you are correct about.

-Alomar has been decent. How can you say he doesn't care...I never see him slacking off at all... :huh:

-Willie needs to come up big for us when needed though, seriously.

And how often has he been given a chance to do that.

Few times, sir. *Looks down in shame* ;)

:lolhitting no biggie beastly....you are one of the few people on these boards that can admit being wrong, thats commendable. (see any thread about loaiza). Willie, none of us are sure that he can get it done if playing regularly, but we might get to see in 2004, with a revamped Sox team.
