I forget who it was, but someone gave me an extremely hot tip on Ramon Hernandez coming back from injury for the Padres at the end of last year.

He carried me through the playoffs and I knew I had to have him on my team this year.

Baltimore is definitely playing him too much this year though. Only 6 off days so far :-t Those knees are 30 years old and they're carrying a load of 225 lbs.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

I'm sure it has something to do with Pavlov's Dog. He rings the bell, and you salivate on que.


Yup. He's this whiny little thing that always needs attention.

You ignore him, and eventually he will go away.

Chances are you dont have two catchers and would want one back in the deal, but then what is the point. Most people are reluctant to trade for a catcher because then they will have two. Ramon is solid, ok he might slow down but you will like the ending numbers...


Yeah actually there is because catcher is possibly the deepest position out there. If Hernandez does regress as expected due to over use then he would make a great sell high candidate right now.

Jason Kendall is a man as well, I believe he caught 17 straight innings in a night game and caught the next day in a day game, singling in his first AB. He also calls the league out for being to soft.

What a wuss! ;-7
Is there anything fluffier than a cloud?
If there is, I don't want to know about it.
