Welcome to August boys
What up. It's been a while since I posted. Good weekend for the Blue Cru. Taking 3 of 4 from the Orioles. Zack Attack is Back. Boo yah. It was great to see the one nice play of the year from Gordon. Sell now if you can anything for him. He started showing his true colors again last night by not getting a hit. Losing Ankiel and Farnsworth hurts. We gave up a Bopper and a Flamethrower for a guy that has no power(but can at least play centerfield and is fast (which we already have)), a hard thrower from the pen with a high ERA (a throw-in) and a guy that has a chance to make it to the bullpen in a few years (the longshot). I've read a couple of blogs and it is crazy to think that a guy people say is a left handed setup guy is a good deal for a couple of established veteran performers. I don't see it. I trust in Moore though that there will definitely be enough potential in these guys to make it worthwhile in the end. The real problem is what we do in the mean time. I guess we'd fallen out of the race for the most part so we decided to restock. We don't have any proven hitters for next year outside of Kendall, Butler, DeJesus, and Bloomie though. You can't rely on rookies, so if we make a run we need to dip our pen into some free agency ink. Later skaters.
