What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
The LA Dodgers had added All star utility infielder former Face of the Texas Rangers Michael Young to their already loaded roster. MY had been batting over .500 in his last 6 games.Can you imagine how elated he must be. He's a Cali boy and gets to be in this pennant race with the Dodgers.I can't help but be happy for him.Who knew that the Dodgers needed a below average to terrible defensive infielder for the stretch run?
Let it go-GEEEZ
"Who knew that the Dodgers needed a below average to terrible defensive infielder for the stretch run?"
They don't. That's what makes this move so perplexing, especially from MY's standpoint. What does he have to gain other than joining a playoff team and extending his season? His playing time will be curtailed, even severely limited. MY made it clear with the Rangers he as no interest in sitting the bench but yet that's what he'll mostly be doing with LA. It seems like nothing more than a last-gasp grasp at a WS ring by an aging player that knows his time is just about up. Best wishes to him.
MY is just finishing up the season, why not in the sixth game of the World Series instead of the 29th of September. The Dodgers pick up a career .300 bat with a plethora of clutch bats over a highly successful career, what is there not to like. Imagine you are Mattingly, who do you want up in the 9th in a clutch situation, Uribe or Young? A good pick up for the Dodgers, a team that has to be the odds on favorite to win it all. A definite win win situation for LA and MY.
Good point, Lee. I just can't imagine MY patiently sitting around for that possible 9th inning pinch hit. That will get old with him very quickly. But, to his credit, he'll stay positive and professional for the good of the team....
Unless they don't win the WS. Then what?
Sandwisch---i think you need another pot of coffee. You are 0-2 this morning. Think!Nothing more than a last gasp at a World Series ring?-well duh!I wonder how long he had to think about waiving his no trade clause!Lee of Arlington just went yard on you!
Oh no. You snuck in another one while i was posting. That's strike three. Sit down and wait patiently till you can do better.
I'll be glad when you idiots get through picking his bones. Give it a rest.
Oh--go back to your family BBQ
Lee went yard on me. Now I feel like Yu Darvish. I obviously suck. I'll try harder next time.
Teri you come off as a fool when you put the bbq posts on me. I post as JD nothing else.
