Yeah, Tito Francona was born in Aliquippa.

Don't tell me that Leyland or LaRussa or Francona (or Garner, or Macha, or Girardi) wouldn't have these guys over .500.

Sure they would have. Of course, Bullwinkle J. Moose could manage that team better than Jim Tracy has.

I could manage this team better then Tracy.

Man am I glad I get to see their prospects in the minor league system play better then this in Altoona and State College.

The Morris trade is a joke.....the Pirates FO continue to impress me w/ their lack of common sense ...

Mark Cuban would buy this team in a heartbeat...the cash is probably in his wine cellar...he is the only hometown guy that could turn this around... but I heard he wants to buy the Cubs???

There is no guarantee he could be allowed to buy them.

I was watching the Giants game in ESPN2 last night and all Berman and the others could do is, of course, talk about Bonds and rave about the insane potential Davis has.

He was looking pretty sharp on the basepaths and in center.

Doh?

It ain't a Smizik. I heard reports on ESPN a couple of weeks ago.

In addition, he still has to pass the MLB BOG.

And after the first inning with Morris pitching, it is 5-0 Mets. Beautiful. Then some wonder why people are sick of the team and are tired of giving money to that organization. One of the many reasons just gave up five runs in the first inning.

BTW, anybody see that diving catch by Davis the other day? Very nice.
