Stop being ignorant! /southpark

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 :-b

Considering Street hasnt thrown ONE PITCH in the majors, and you are already saying he will be the A's closer this year. You are kidding yourself. Considering the only reason he WON'T be in triple A this year is because Chad Bradford is getting back surgery, I think to say he will be the closer is ignorant. If by saying sometime soon you mean next year or the one after, possibly. But to start the season no way. At the deadline, possibly.

And seriously, you cannot bring up spring training stats....that really is no basis for an argument. Jolbert Cabrera was amongst the league leaders last year in spring training for HR's. Come on now.


Exactly, couldn't have said it better myself.

I know. Just seeing whether anybody else would get the reference, although it's hard to get the voice they use down in words. That was a great episode.

Ja'mon!

inexperienced? dude, my league is deeper than any thought you've ever engaged in when it comes to evaluating up-and-coming talent such as street in this thread.

i dont care that he's young.

i dont care that he's never thrown a pitch in mlb.

i dont care that you think he wont close in oaktown this season.

all i care about is the fact that he's never failed on any sort of level. he's never had an ERA over 2.00 on any level of ball. this isnt another ryan wagner--this guy is for real.

If Dotel is traded Calero will be the closer, not Street.

I think he means inexperienced in how you talk/react to things. I doubt you being in a big league has anything to do what what he said. Your taking things way to personal, even the most talented of prospects fail and don't come through when everyone thinks they will. The matter is your basically not considering that at all, and most people who have been around a while (or experienced) would always take that into account. To me that is all he meant by that, calm down some.

Which is higher than Putz who would be in line to close if Guardado's arm falls off.

How is he not the next Ryan Wagner? How do you know this? He's pitched no more than 13 innings at any level other than college. Why in the world would you think that's a good representation of how good he is? Wagner was much more dominant than Street in college, and was drafted a lot higher too (14th overall vs 40th). I think you're over-reacting to a guy who won't make an impact for at minimum another year.
