What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Reminds me of This Evan Grant gem.
Begs the question. Who, besides some of the DFW media air heads (Grant, JJT, Galloway & Co) really believed that losing Young would devastate the team? Or even be a moderate set back, for that matter?
Lots of well meaning fans believed it. Can never underestimate under educated fan bases.
damn this get old.
I guess the leadership has been broughten by Berkman or Ian or somebody because without it they shouldn't be winning so many games
I'm sure if I was 11 years old and from Philadelphia that I would have been very excited for Michael Young's arrival, what with all these media numb-nuts telling me how he's a career .300 hitter who brings a ton of #leadership and #clubhousepresence.
Too bad we don't have anyone grounding into double plays to kill any shred of momentum anymore. I'll take Nelson's 0.2 WAR batting 5th over a negative holy shit WAR batting 5th. Leadership or no leadership.
"I remember that."
Wow another let's bash MY post.
Read an article about the Phillies game where they won on back to back HR, and the only mention of MY was about how a ball "squirted" by him at some point. I chuckled. At some point soon, I am hoping to write an article comparing the stats of Napoli, Hamilton, Young, Koji, Feldman, and Adams to that of their replacements, just to see how our replacement guys have fared. I think you'll be surprised (not really).
This is an example of a forum that mixes opinion and statistics in a well-balanced, friendly manner. By the time this forum is completed, readers will have facts and thoughts from both sides of the question, and will be able draw meaningful conclusions going forward. To all the participants here, I say thank you and congratulations - the best of the internet on display.
...and then appears MY 2.0 - Teahen. Is Garcia going EAST soon?
Wtf are you talking about hobz?
As much as JD and the FO mucked up the big names in the off season, trading MY without absorbing all but $550,000 in salary AND getting players in return was an incredible deal. I was ready for DFAing him.
God bless Philly.
Get over it youidiot-he is a Philly now.
