  1. I appreciate Abreu’s path to the majors, and some of the things he’s accomplished. It’s time for him to go. It’s an easy call. Vaughn needs to play 140+ games at 1b, and the same for Eloy at DH.
  2. Rolen, Helton, Kent, Rollins, Buehrle, Hunter, Beltran I guess if enough voters wanted Andruw Jones and Billy Wagner, I’d vote for them too. Arod, Sheffield, Manny…nah Tim Hudson shouldn’t have fallen off the ballot last year. I’m losing interest in this. The committee vote will be announced 12/4. Hopefully McGriff gets in. Clemens and Bonds (and Schilling), should be interesting.
  3. Mendick will probably sign back, I’m thinking. 2nd base will probably be the one position they piecemeal all season.
  4. Favorite- Gray road jersey with diamond sock patch. No Nike logo. The 83s have been overdone. I suppose they have to do it one more year for the 40th anniversary, but I hope they’re done after that.
  5. It’s cute they announce “finalists”. Is there a run off now? Cease finished second. Duh.
  6. Brett also said he got a 3yr deal. Something the Sox would never confirm. Not a surprising amount of time, but now you know. If Ventura got 5 years as manager, I’ll take the over with Grifol.
  7. Menechino soon to be single. Get it?
  8. Basically George is friends with Jerry in AZ. Kinda kicked it over the goal line for Grifol. I would recommend listening to it. GB is old school, but why wouldn’t he be?
  9. This George Brett interview is must listen if you want to know how this all went down. It’s so Reinsdorf. I still like Grifol, but you hear why he was hired.
  10. There’s a YouTube video of Grifol losing his s%*# on an umpire in a winter league game 10 years ago. He can get in your face…literally. Today was a good day. Sure, if we can wave a magic wand and have a new owner with deep pockets, we’d take it. But, all things considered, I’m very happy Grifol is taking over in the dugout. He’s not going to be an embarrassment.
  11. He was with the Royals organization in 14/15. I’m considering that recent enough.
  12. Are people really disliking this guy already, or are they just serial complainers? He’s a qualified manager who has been on a winning staff. I’m sold he’s going to be better than what we’ve had since “Good Ozzie”.
  13. Part of the reason why I wanted Long is he has the public speaking part of the job down pat. The manager position is the face and voice of the team. I’ve listened to some Grifol interviews now, and he’s every bit as good as Kevin Long in that aspect. Very likable. I’m sure Chris Getz had a lot of input in getting him hired. I like the hire way more now.
  14. I do like that Grifol has had a front row seat to the bad base running and lack of hustle over the past couple years. I hope he’s ready to bust balls in spring training.
  15. I’ve seen Montoyo make some monumental blunders as manager. I dunno.
  16. Yeah, there’s no way to judge this move right now. The only surface thing is the Royals didn’t want him to take over- which doesn’t necessarily mean anything. Good luck, Pedro.
  17. This is now official. No game tonight.
  18. I don’t know, but Long did manage some in the minors. And I’m sure he’s thinking baseball all the time in the dugout. He’s qualified. I’m rooting for him to be the guy…especially over Ozzie. But I’ll choose to believe Ozzie is already out of the running,
  19. Rob Thomson had some real good quotes today on Kevin Long. Basically how much confidence he gives his hitters. I’m sold on that guy being qualified to take over a team, especially when we need our core guys to hit for some power.
  20. If they don’t play tonight, they’re considering pushing back everything by a day. So a game 6 and 7 would be Saturday and Sunday night.
