The cafe didn't get what it wanted...

Postby PresHabib » Mon Nov 10, 2003 3:17 pm

and that would be Brandon Webb getting the NL Rookie of the Year. Even worse, it went to Dontrelle. I can't sit here and say that Dontrelle was bad, because he certainly wasn't, but come on, we all know how nasty B-Webb was all year. And Webb didn't even finish seond, he finished THIRD, coming in behind Scott Posednick as well. I guess winning a world championship can push you over the top, but I really would have liked to see Webb get the hardware, he really deserved it.

Actually, I think the Cafe got exactly what it (should have) wanted.

Now Webb will be flying way under the radar going into next year's draft. I'll be more than happy to let the other folks fight over Willis while I pick up Webb as my fourth starter. :-D

Well, Willis did play a huge role as a catalyst for Florida's run...

I think the award could just as easily have gone to Webb, though.

I had Dontrelle 3rd behind Webb and Pods as most deserving, but I did say that Willis would win it.

Yet another bad move from the voters, in my opinion. :-/

thats true...I loved Webb all year and i guess his lack of recognition can allow him to slip into the later rounds of next years draft, where I will eagerly scoop him up.

Speaking of AZ starters, Miguel Batista could wind up being a good value pick in later rounds, depending on where he winds up. If he lands on a good team, expect him to win 15 games with a sub 4 ERA. At least, thats what I see.

Still though...Webb, THIRD for ROY? No sir, I don't like it.

Good point! I think he would be a perfect match for the Cardinals. Arizona had to decline his option because of $$ restraints, but I'm sure they hated letting him go.

He doesn't strike out a ton of guys, but just seems like no one gets good wood on the ball w/ him.
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.
