What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Looks like Pudge landed a job with the front office as a "special assistant to the general manager, instructor and ambassador."
Nice to see Pudge get back involved with the Rangers. Hopefully he has a great impact on Jorge Alfaro's development.
You beat me to it...
- approach Jorge Alfaro- stop when you reach him- shake his hand, tell him "I'm Pudge, the best catcher ever"- admire his smile and chuckle- take Jorge Alfaro behind home plate- show him everything you see- tell him everything you know- nurture him through High-A- nurture him through AA- nurture him through AAA- get him to Texas by 2016- profit
Another article on ESPN says Pudge has already met Alfaro, loves his tools, and is looking forward to making him a dominant major league catcher.
Pudge was impressed with Alfaro's raw skillset and work ethic (IIRC), so hopefully Alfaro can learn for one of the best catchers ever.
Time to get Murphy a new number and hang number 7 next to Nolan and Johnny Oates
^ No kidding! And it sure as hell better be before #10 gets retired...
Agreed Adam. And Murph already came out last year at the TRHOF ceremony and said he has no attachment and would be happy to get a new number when that happens, let's get it done!
Is that the real Adam?
I am real , not sure who you are thinking of , but I'm not a trollI read stuff on here every day. I just rarely post any thing.
There's at least one other guy around here named Adam.
Go go gadget Pudge.
oh, heyyyy, Adam...
Hope Pudge doesn't bring the PEDs.
so funny everything on here...just because Pudge "talks" to someone doen't make his "tools" better....talent is talent....mental is the game after talent
Pudge, please don't train Alfaro, as you did, to throw way too many fastballs, because they can trust his great arm.
Ozzie, one of the issues with Alfaro is that he's very raw and there's come concern that his bat will outpace his ability to be a defensive catcher. If that happens Alfaro will probably have to move to 1st base or RF which will make him a much much much less exciting prospect.
Hopefully Pudge can help prevent that from happening.
Ace, it will be good to keep track of Alfaro's development. I think he is a converted SS so he has talent, He will need lots of work blocking balls in the dirt.
Eric's list left off "use PED's" in between arriving in Texas and profit.
