Its ok, I stopped reading this post when I remembered you wrote this...

"Carlos Gonzalez sucks, and you have all made me eternally hate my first non-Yankee, non-Barry Bonds, MLB player."

A hilarious read. LOL ;-D


You are such a tool. So I go out on the limb and say a rookie hitting in Coors Field in a small sample size, who has repeatedly disappointed in the majors with many different teams, is a flash-in-the-pan. He proves me wrong by having an MVP-esque season next year. So I was wrong, and I've admitted that by including CarGo in my Top-25 rankings I posted in the Leftovers thread. Now every chance you get, you link to it like it's the funniest thing on the Cafe. TOOL.


What is toolish is disregarding someone's ranking with a snide remark.

PS: Once again, Gonzalez wasn't a rookie when you posted that because he lost his rookie status while playing for the A's in '08 and has actually only played for 2 MLB teams total (A's & Rockies) not 'many different teams', 3 organizations but only 2 teams. The Rockies were so disappointed in him they just signed him to 7 year $80 mill contract. Also, that thread is hilarious.

Once again, as I think I thoroughly explained in that thread, to many, many other people, a "rookie" doesn't necessarily mean the MLB definition of a rookie, but a raw, inexperienced, unproven player. Without a doubt, CarGo fit that mold when that post was written. Think of it like how people think of the word "veteran" in real life. Most people would think old Vietnam or WWII era vets, but Iraqi War veterans fit the definition as well.

Also, having to post a picture of an actual wrench = incredibly lame, pathetic flame.

Jason Heyward is this year's Carlos Gonzalez. I am supremely confident he'll hit .300 with an over .400 OBP. My only question is whether he'll hit closer to 20 homers or 40 homers.

He's massive and hits the ball harder than anyone I've ever seen. The only question is how much loft he'll get. if his flyball rate increases a bit, I can absolutely see a .300/.425/.575 line

Brandon Morrow finishes in the top 10 in CY Young voting

Carl Crawford is a massive disappointment for fantasy owners and the Red Sox. Adrian Gonzalez is the opposite.

Keeping with the Red Sox theme, Kevin Youkilis is at worst a top 3 3b.

Yeah...thats what I'm talkin about! :-D Show that Brewer Love cuz the feeling around Wisconsin is "Could this be the Year! Pitching has just sucked over the last two years and now Melvin has put the pieces in place. Greinke will do well in the NL but the real steal was Marcum who is a tough guy who just gets after hitters and has tremendous control. Shortstop is my only concern because of Betancourt's limited range! Now we just have to play the game!

you don't have to be a baseball expert to figure out that Bryce Harper will not win a Cy Young.
