    So who is Weisman? Did he ever play ball above the high school level?

    Are you honestly saying that you can't know baseball without playing in college? That's absurd. You'd basically be discrediting a large number of the GMs in baseball right now.

    Athletic ability and intelligence are not necessarily hand-in-hand.

    Do you feel like I meant it as a bad thing? I just meant some people are better at analyzing and research.

    It's still worth remembering that if LaRoche had produced DeWitt's numbers in 2008 - .373 on-base percentage, .389 slugging percentage, zero home runs - many would have considered them disappointing.
    But he didn't. DeWitt has. Until that changes, DeWitt deserves to play.

    We're not talking about Furcal losing a job to Ramon Martinez because of an injury. DeWitt hasn't proven anything long-term, but neither has LaRoche. The choice right now is between two minor league third basemen, one of which has done a good job (so far) and the other has done nothing but get hurt.

    No, but I did catch a game of last year's series against the Mets where Penny lectured Green after his at bat, heh. Always a good series, yes.

    This year...different story. Small sample size? Very. Will he keep it up? I wish, but unlikely.
    Not fond of his .302 career average? Nearly 1500 hits in 8 1/4 seasons? What about his ability at stealing bases?

    Since the last dead horse we beat hardly exists, I guess I'll start beating up Eight Belles now (too soon?). You're extremely behind on not only the Juan Pierre discourse, but also the "what makes a good hitter good" discourse.

    Juan Pierre is BAD at getting on base. On base percentage hovering around .330 in the previous 3 seasons is BAD. Especially for a guy who hits singles.

    Stolen bases...Pierre gets thrown out about 25% percent of the time. That is about "breaking even" in terms of actually helping your team. Giving away outs: BAD THING.

    There. That's the cliffnotes version. I can't believe this still has to be talked about, but ok.

    I would also like to add that Juan Pierre throws like a girl

    I definitely won't argue his fielding incapabilities, but I think the Joe Morgans and John Millers of LGK are too harsh on a good offensive player.

    Except he's not a good offensive player. And in this example, YOU are the Joe Morgan of LGK.
