just thought i'd be the first to let everyone know...those who arent in dynasty leagues that is...
If you don't get my joke you are just ignorant!
I'm assuming you are a really young guy because you sound pretty inexperienced. Yes, it's possible that from the outset Huston Street (sp?) will be good - maybe even good enough to close. But for the overwhelming majority of pitchers, equally as hyped and talented as Street, they don't immediately succeed. Even more rare is a team that is willing to throw a guy with minimal ML experience into the very crucial role of closer, even guys as talented as your dreamboat.
I think that would be even more shocking would be to see the A's trust a rook to close. But looking at their situation maybe it's possible.
Hey brandnew - Jairo better get on the ball then. Hasn't he already designated for assignment?
Poke - you do understand that south park was just spoofing something MJ actually said/says, right? Just making sure you weren't correcting me
