Amazing thing about Proctor is that the Braves handcuffed themselves to him. When the sent him to Gwinnett, they guaranteed he would be brought up by a certain date, regardless of how he had pitched. Now it seems they don’t want to admit their mistake. The loss of Peter Moylan has been greatly understated.
So sad…no show? Oh well, I’m on vacay anyway and head back to work on Wed. So it’s kinda perfect but sorry for work lost. Can you tell us this week’s predictions? Hope the kid has fun at camp…you told him to sleep with one eye open right?
I put this question out on the “show” last night, but I am sure I will forget to re-ask on the re-do. What is Uggla’s WAR (or in this case LBR – losses below replacement player)? And does he have the worse one considering how much he makes? How many millions does he make per L (or negative W)?
Does that question even make sense? Bub, help me out.
Pretty cool that the players voted Chipper an all star. The Vulture made the squad, too. Awesome. I’m pleased with our four selections, but I thought Hanson deserved a nod, especially if he pitches well tonight.
Steve, I hate that your Cars 2 slam was lost. I’m a complete Pixar fanboy, and I refuse to watch it. I could tell by the trailers they totally sold out for merchandising and the reviews just confirmed it. I couldn’t possibly be more bummed out about it. Pixar held sacred status for me in an otherwise generally bankrupt film industry. A real “et tu, Brute?” moment.
Alright, down to the lake to shoot bottle rockets into the tornado wreckage…
Ham, Dan’s given us a loss of 0.7 games at a cost of around 5 million.
Adam Dunn’s got him beat with a loss of 1.2 games at 6 million.
Chone Figgins, for about 5 million, has given the Mariners a loss of 1.3 games.
And that’s the first two players that popped into my limited head, there’s no chart of this info per se, so I’d just have to think of a player that’s sucking and go find the figures. I’d be surprised if Dan’s in the top 10, but I could be wrong. His homers have kept his value from reaching the heights of travesty.
