Danny Graves, I apologize!

Postby Area51's » Mon Apr 12, 2004 4:32 pm

So far so good...and I had you right down near Rocky Biddle (who WILL NEVER GET AN APOLOGY FROM ME :-D ) at my pre-season lists. Sure you might blow up soon, but I thought I'd tip my cap at least right now 8-o

4 games
4 saves
tidy whip and era

NO STRIKEOUTS to speak of..hehe.

But guys are batting under 200 against him, and he only needed 10 pitches to get through the inning today (Monday) so I wanted to count myself as the fool for owning Riske and A. Lopez, and fall on your 84 mile-an-hour sword! ;-D

You rock DG!

I also think anpology is required for Jose Mesa. Come on 3 for 3 in save opps with a 0 ERA. No respect he gets, no respect.

Well, one of Mesa saves was of the cheap 1-out variety.

And why should I apologize to Mesa when he never apologized to me for what he did last year!

I tried trading him, but the only offer I could get was Albie Lopez.... :(

Graves was a great value this year. Everyone seems to have forgotten that he was a solid closer until last year's failed starting experiment. This start shouldn't surprise anyone.

yeah he was one of the more consistant closers until the Reds were forced to start him due to the lack of SP who could keep the ball in their SMALLpark. he averaged just over 30 saves over the four seasons he closed fulltime.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

and the best part .....

Danny Graves trade value keeps skyrocketing ....
Not just for us, but for the Cincinatti Reds primarily. They would love to get out from under that contract.
