I said he might....you do know what the word might means...right?...well just in case you dont here is the definition (used to express possibility)...basically there is a chance....okay back to my statement....now that we have clerified the word "might"...He might be the next Ryan Shealy..sorry this is my mistake...I should have said Chris Shelton ( he was a player last year that started out the season hitting 9 hrs in the first 13 games and then fizzled out.... but the name is neither here nor there in your interpretation of the quote. I also said he "might" (used to express possibility not fact)( I know i think its that word "might" that must be throwing you off...its a tough word to understand...I should have used a simpler word) be the next Ryan Howard... then I go on to say....you just dont know.....In simple terms I was saying...that He could be a bust...such as Chris Shelton or have a breakout year...such as Ryan Howard...never did I state factually that he was the next Ryan Howard or would have that kind of year..I went on to say...there are no guarantees. Sorry Bud that this was so hard for you to understand. Think about that Ged.
And I'll break it down even better for you.
You are an absolute brainless idiot for even using Carlos Pena and Ryan Howard in the same sentence.
Just to show the sheer stupidity with which your comparison is based no matter if you said "might" or not lets break this down-
Carlos Pena- In his 8th major league season with his 6th team he has finished with a batting average above .258 once in his career with Boston and thats because he only played in 18 games. His best power season was in 2004 with a whooping 27 homers to go along with a stellar .241 batting average. Outside of 2004 his best season was 18 homers with 50 RBI's and a .248 average.. Career average .247
Ryan Howard- .294 career average, .397 career OBP, Has hit 88 homers and 240 RBI's in hit first 1,000 At bats to go along with a disgustingly impressive 2006 campaign in which he secured the National League MVP ahead of people like Albert freakin Pujols.
So now maybe you can see no matter how many times you say "might" how absolutely insanely retarded it is to utter Carlos Pena's future with the current career of Ryan Howard. Maybe if you werent such a soft little girl when it came to a little critisizm I wouldnt have to sit here and spell out how dumb your comment was.
