Corky, Kenny "Willy Mays Hayes" Lofton, Ramirez, Randall Simon (the sausage king of Chicago), Farnsworth, Alfonsucka, all reiterated their thugness this year. In addition, the Flubs have begun their future development of their promising thugs, by not stalling the thug training of Prior, and even allowing the thugosity to bleed into the very respected Alou family.

And let's not forget their manager. King of the thugs.

Cincinatti was running away with the NL Central's thug title, but they traded a lot of people away, making all the room in the world for the Flubs.

I was kind of under the impression, using the guidelines set by the author, that just putting on a CHC uniform made you a Thug.

But now I am lost. "Thug NL Central?" ...as in all of em ..? Or was it Thug Cincy? .... I truly am confused now... :-/ :-/ <------ confused

Color me confused as well. Though I suspect that both Mother Teresa and Ghandi, if wearing Cubs uniforms, would also be thugs.

I'm going to nip this question in the bud on my end.

No, I do not consider Barry Bonds a "thug".

However, I think Barry should have the title of "Mr. Opportunist".
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

I define thug as:

A player who has...

A) A publically-exposed and clearly-defined character weakness
AND
B) has allowed that same weakness to affect his team.

That's why David Wells, Corky, Bonds, ManRam, etc. can be labelled thugs in my book.

Based upon your posts in this forum, I guess this makes you a thug to, right? :-)

As much as I know it's best to ignore the classlessness in your reply, you have PEDRO as an avatar. MISTER THUG! <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif>
