This guy is such a professional hitter in every way. He stands there
and takes a pitch or 2. Looks to make contact with 2 strikes. He fakes a
bunt to see what the guy is throwing and what the defense is doing. He
gives Reyes plenty of time to run. His best days as a pure hitter may be
gone, but I can only hope that the rest of the vets & young hitters watch
this guy and go to bat with an idea instead of just swinging for the
fences. I think having him around is 100 times better than anything HOJO
can ever do.
Best move of the year so far?
I think so. At first, it was debatable, but as every game goes by he proves
to be more valuable to the team. Omar quietly upgraded the bench and the
lineup with Castillo, Marlon Anderson, and now Conine. It's a shame he could
not bag some bullpen help, but every other team is looking for that as well.
Damn Taxi Drivers!
LGM 2007- Hide quoted text -
now. A configuration of Gotay, Chavez, Anderson, Green, Castro, and
possibly Easley, all of who have that same "it" factor from last
season, will be available from the bench, at least by the post-
season. I think Pedro will make the rotation, and for at least some
of the postseason games, we'll have Sosa, Feliciano, Maine, Perez, and
Wagner all available for the bullpen. Possibly Joe Smith too.
Honestly, I'm not anti-Schoenweis anymore either. If we have a
healthy September, I think we're golden this year.
