He doesn't score many runs for a leadoff hitter on the best team in the AL.

In real baseball, the guy is OVER-RATED.

Better hope those Sox fans don't see this lol. ;-)
They believe Chicago is winning, and is better because Pods took Lee's spot. :-P

And Robinson Cano is a God, right? Mr. .330 OBA who was a second rate prospect, and who you seem to be overly complacent with.

:-b

Last year... yeah, Pods sucked. This year, he's been pretty damn good. .366 OBA with that kinda speed... I'll take that any day.

BTW are Yankee fans still hating on Giambi? Havn't been keeping up to speed with that...

Hey LBJ, good to see you again, ;-) it's been awhile.

Yea Pods has improved and is doing ok. If they had got him cheap i say good move. But it cost them more then what Pods brings. Pods is 86th in runs created, not bad, but CLee is 23rd. Pods has closed the gap in rc/27 ranking 79th to Lee's 47th.

I was at the game (i live in KC), sitting a few rows behind the Sox dugout, after he was caught stealing in the 2nd, I shouted "way to show that speed Pods!!!." His next time on base, he stole third...and John Buck threw a laser down to 2nd in the 2nd inning, so I don't think there's anything to worry about concerning Pods stealing ability.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I traded Pods for Jason Bay straight up about a month and a half ago and my lead in SB has increased from 24 to 31. Good riddance.

He was caught stealing by the Royals. The Royals then changed their marketing slogan soon after to "The Kansas City Royals: You can walk all over us but you are not going to run on us." :-D
