An update on the IF’s show would be interesting- what they were, where we are now (I am too lazy right now but I will go look it up ). I know you are getting to them, especially Glaus – injury, can he play 1base, etc – … Just thought of that since you mention several times this show its the unknown, the volatility that makes us so nervous. also makes it exciting…Good show.
Great show! I’m excited about this week’s baseball (I know, I’m setting myself up for heartbreak). I thought we heard somewhere that Glaus started really slow and then had his best year ever. I’m not ready to give up on him either but I don’t mind he and Melky/McLouth sitting out a game or two if they can’t get it together. I like the concept of putting the guys hitting in the top of the line up…all of them. Maybe it’s unconventional baseball but I counted 3 or 4 games when we scored in more than 3 innings. So we’re not scoring every inning or even most innings anyway. Why not stack the innings we do score in with run support and score big instead of 1 or 2 runs. Maybe that doesn’t make sense but it seems logical to me (says the lady who talks to children all day).
Flip flop Diaz and Escobar and obviously if McLouth is in put him in 8th hole (which made me laugh everytime you guys said it cause it sounds like something else) and move Escobar up. Same with Glaus. I put Prado second although I think he would be great as leadoff.
“You show up to the ballpark everyday and you don’t feel like you’re needed to win ball games.” Jeff Francouer in reference to Atlanta. Then he said in NY he felt needed and was able to relax. Well that all makes perfect sence.
One day Jeff F’s comments won’t surprise me any more. You guys have fun at the game tonight! Too bad you don’t all have matching ABT t-shirts to “represent”. Two words…chest paint. In other news, I got carded tonight at the grocery store. I freakin LOVE when that happens!
