I understand Tru is a 2nd half player, but a 2nd half better than a player the caliber of Wright is surprising.

I'm a better second-half player than:

22 R, 2 HR, 17 RBI, 4 SB, .241 avg, 331 obp and a 358 slg!!!!

I dealt ARod for Johan and Beltre (as a throw-in) just before the break.

Needless to say, :-D

Some fella back in April posted some thread about him conjuring up a new nickname for Adrian Beltre and well, he's one of those die-hard folks still on the Beltre Bandwagon of 2004.

Did I fall asleep and miss the end of the baseball season? Or has someone somewhere redefined the "second half" as "from the All-Star game to August 29"? :-?

yeah i know i dont really understand where beltre being a 2nd half player comes from? i think what they mean is hes an *august* player.. he always seems to do well in that month, after august is done, get ridda him.. beltre that is.. we should change his nickname to *tanker* because he tanks your team for you..
