Dye sucking so far...
Good to see Rowand 2 for 2.
Smartest thing Comcast has ever done. Still doesn't make up for all their f ups.
My only complaint with Comcast is their sound.
He's been hitting well as of late, it's nice to finally see these balls drop for hits.
I'll take us and the under.
Last night was a great win because our 7-8-9 hitters came through.
I like your signature but I would add Crede on there as well. You might be asking why. Because I'm still not convinced Lee had to be traded to get Pods. Who do they have playing 3B? Russell Branyan. He's played as much in LF as he has in 3B & he's a better LF than 3B. They wanted a RH HR hitter that good fill a hole in the field they have. Lee has avg'd less than 10HR more than Crede in the past 2 seasons. Crede costs less than Pods. I've heard the salary dump argument & I don't buy that either. The 3 new guys Dye, Pods, & Viz will consume all off Lee's 16.5M/2yr. Possibly more depending on arbitration. Did we really need Viz? Was he worth trading Lee?
Trading Crede of course means either signing a FA 3B, playing Fields, Ozuna, or bidding on Nakamara. The Sox were rumored to have interest in Naka but that seemed short-lived. In my opinion they just felt Crede's potential far exceeded that of any other player they could get to play 3B. They weren't ready to give up on him. Having made that decision the choice was then whittled down to Lee or Koney & they just like Koney better.
I think it's ironic because Lee epitomizes speed & power. He's 15SB/yr avg of the last 2 yrs is amongst the leaders on the team. Defensively he's had his share of web gems. Is improvement over the years has led to his defense helping the Sox much more than it hurts it.
As the year plays out I think most Lee Sox fans will be watching his progress as well as Pods, Crede's, Koney's, Dye's, & Maggs. It's definitely got to be Kenny's most controversial trade to date.
Of course all of that is overshadowed by Kenny's most important trade for the 2005 season: Carl Everett. He's playing at an MVP type level right now. Even better than Lee. Yes, Kenny traded 5 players to get him these past seasons but Carl's always produced for the Sox.
Half the time they lose their picture.
s***, what happened to Everett, just got out of class and saw the injury post
Check Crede's salary, then check CLee's.
You don't "buy" the salary dump theory? Hmmmmmm....well, I won't even bother then.
whoa, how'd we tie up the score?
Comacst talking about Curry now.
Cmon Orlando, let's get another scoreless inning from you!!
Paulie with a three run bomb to RF.
PK 3 run bomb to RF
Kong with the thrice run HR.
This is a HUGE inning for Duque to keep big MO on our side
It really was a bomb though. He had to crush that ball to get it out on a night like tonight. (Wind blowing directly in)
ah, thxx for the update
Duque just ain't got it tonight, he can still pull it together.
Hernandez shows a LOT of emotion on the mound. I saw him waiving his arms with Uribe, smiling to both the dugout and himself, and now he's doing it again.
Hmmmmm, I didn't know that about him.
quit hangin that mother f***in curve there el duque s***!!! another 2 bagger 4 the tribe
Yeah, it got me too.
uh oh, no more injuries!
contusion of the left something or other in the shoulder...everett is day to day according to the tribe broadcasters
