Yep, winning over money. What an odd concept huh? The thing about RJ is that Arizona wasn't anything special before they signed him (no offense to Arizona or their fans). Seemed like a smarter deal all the way around to come to Texas.


RJ lived in AZ, during his Seattle days. He and his wife wanted him to play in AZ, that was most of it.

johm thompson goign to sign with braves lol hes a washed up pitcher imo lol not even the rangers wanted to pay that much for him lol woah the braves is very scary lol no of them have an era under 3 i dont think lol i forsee braves not making the playoffs this year a carreer year russ wont happen agin im sure of it, and the lost of shieff and javy will hurt their line up and a now injury prone chipper wont help. Whats left an carrer from marcus giles and a light hitting furcal. I also predict that smotlz sometime this season will be moved back to a starting pitcher becasue of sp trouble for once.

There are many playes that make their homes out here. Even Albert Belle.

Johnson, who lives in nearby Paradise Valley, chose the
Diamondbacks over the Anaheim Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers and
Texas Rangers because he wants to play close to home and he
thinks Arizona is making moves to quickly become a contender. "We
tried to weigh all the factors -- how competitive the team would
be in the future, where his family would be comfortable," said
Johnson's agent Barry Meister. "Money was a non-factor because
everything was pretty comparable. He made the decision late,
late, late last night, slept on it, still felt that way in the
morning, and we called the other clubs."

I concur. If the braves want to continue on, Thompson better not be the biggest name they get.......or Jacque Jones! 8-o
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.

This may or may not be true but I refuse to count the Braves out until they are officially eliminated. Every year, people continue to criticize them yet they win their division. Think about it.......It's like calling for rain every day and then it finally happens. 2 weeks later. Eventually, you will be right but they are the favorites to me until someone knocks them off.

P.S. Isn't Bowa still the Philly manager?

Yep, Bowa is. I'm sure Pat the Bat loves That.....in his hat.
