He's been killing it for my fantasy team. At first I was upset about him going to the Dodgers, thinking he will lose RBI chances. Looks like this may turn out real well for me.

I like other sports, including baseball.

But as I always say, even bad football is better than good baseball.

I miss NFL Europe, damn it!

Hehe, i am not like that. I like football and baseball about the same and NBA is 2nd. lol. I used to play baseball when i was a kid religiously. Just like that movie the Sandlot. Played football alot as well when it was in season. Football is just to damned hot where i grew up to play year around. lol

Ain't that the truth! I predict he quits on Torre when his hair length becomes an issue.

Well, when your second level sports team like the Jayhawks win a championship, it gives you a bit more patience for the other teams. None of my teams need a championship for about 5-10 years, and Jayhawks are off the hook for 12-15

:-P

4-5 and has already had 2 infield singles. The guy just doesnt hustle.

He's an unreal pure hitter. He works counts, hits just about everything.

Just don't count on him to field, run out plays, or visit sick kids.

So far he's running out plays. He scored from first on a double by James Loney. He has already had 2 infield singles. You ONLY do that by hustling. lol

That works for me. He's only been brought in for the last 2 and a half months for me. I am sure he will play for one last contract. He's going to be ok.

The guy spends hours before each game watching game film along with a ton of BP.

Just imagine if he did work hard? What sort of crazy career numbers he would have? Could he have actually had a better hitting career??

That was a team option. Even if he had stayed in Boston. I doubt they would have picked it up. IT was just best for both of them to part ways. Like he said. I dont need the money. they already paid me 160 million. lol

He is considered to be one of the hardest working men in baseball. That is no BS. That is how he became the hitter he is. I heard Nomar Garciapara talking about his work ethic. Said it was second to none...

Now some of his antics are not good, but give the man his due when it comes to working and preparing.

he works hard at defense, he just sucks

doesnt matter when you drive in 120 runs a year

He will be looking for a 4 year deal which Boras might be able to pull off. It will be tough considering he will be Bonds age at the end of that deal.

Blake was a nice pick-up too last week.

Go Dodgers!

I read somewhere that he will intentionally give a pitcher an out early so he can sit on that pitch later in the game.
