2002 the Best Game 6 of the WS Ever? Not according to Neyer.

Game 6, I am not sure how you pass over 2002. The comeback from a 5-run deficit was the largest in World Series history for an elimination game.  To me, that seems like a pretty fantastic addition...

They are making Moneyball into a movie

It is based on the 2002 season. Classic. I am pretty sure that the Angels won the World Series that year. Brad Pitt to star as Beane. You couldn't make this stuff up. Moneysham link

Mickey Hatcher Talks Patience

11

Just because everyone thinks he is a free swinging hacker. "What Teixeira has done, according to Angels hitting coach Mickey Hatcher, is change the culture of hitting in Los Angeles. He's taught teammates to be more patient, to take walks if the perfect pitch to hit isn't there. "He definitely adds a lot to our lineup with that on-base percentage; a guy that works the count," Hatcher said. "It's good for some of my players to watch that. He's brought that into our lineup. Ever since we got him he's had a lot of big hits for us. He gets on base to help us create more runs. He plays unbelievable defense, and I think that makes our pitching staff that more confident. He's just fun to watch."

"Let me know if you hear anyone talking like that. I'll go up personally and slap them in the face....

For those of you who thought Beane got value in the Harden trade

Gaudin the "throw in" has been doing well and was wasted by Beane as a throw in my opinion: "Chad Gaudin: He was the secondary piece in the Harden trade, and he's been effective, adding depth to...

Maybe some ill between Scioscia and Kotch?

6

Interesting quotes: Asked whether he felt jolted by Tuesday's trade, considering the ties he has to an organization that drafted him in the first round in 2000 and has employed his father, Tom, as a minor league manager and scout for about 30 years, Kotchman barely flinched. "No, not at all," he said. "I don't have any ties here." He said he looked forward to playing for Braves Manager Bobby Cox. "You see how he handles players, how he pulls for his guys," he said. "You have to believe it's a blessing for me to start a new chapter in Atlanta." It seems to me the writer is diggin but it also appears that Casey was more than frustrated with his playing time and his spot in batting order.

Look at #4, I guess Dayn just makes trades up now?

I do not know why I continue to be amazed by the hacktastic Dayn Perry. If it is not a list this guy won't write it. It really is amazing this guy has not won a pulitzer yet. PS someone tell him to eat. Um yeah Bay was dealt to the Pirates for Brian Giles................He just keeps making glaring errors in his columns. Fact check once and awhile big guy. It is not like this was breaking news. 4. July 31, 2002 — The Mets trade Bobby Jones, Jason Bay and Josh Reynolds to the Pirates for Steve Reed and Jason Middlebrook. Obviously, Bay is the key to this one. In order to bolster the bullpen, the Mets parted with a young outfielder who's now a career .282 AVG/.376 OBP/.518 SLG hitter (and, coincidentally, one of the prizes of the current deadline). They got good relief out of the deal, but it wasn't worth giving up a player like Bay.

Enough with the SS in the three hole

Scioscia enough with the god damned SS in the three hole. Aybar and Mice Tits do not come close to qualifying as three hole hitters. Jesus Christ.

Rauch to the Diamondbacks and Wolf to the Astros

I am glad Rauch is not a Red Sox. They need bullpen help. The Astros are just stupid. I have no idea why they traded for Wolf.

Papelbon absolutely is a douche

I can not believe what a douche bag this guy is. He should pitch the ninth? That is classic. The best closer ever, pitching in his own yard might be the guy to go in the ninth............well not according to Riverdance.

Injecting his personal politics into the homerun record were not enough. Now he has withdrawn his offer to give to the Asterick ridden ball to the Hall of Fame. Eat shit Marc. Again.
