Beltran vs. Lowe tomorrow...

Postby beltrans_boy » Sun May 09, 2004 6:48 am

I'm benching Beltran against Lowe tomorrow. Call me crazy, but Beltran's career splits vs. Lowe is a .083 batting average.

I know I'm benching my best player (#1 pick), but the numbers don't lie. Beltran hasn't figured out Lowe.

So I'm just letting you all know, Beltran's gonna have a ridiculous day -- cause I'm f****** crazy and leaving him on my bench.

Numbers don't matter much. To bench Beltran, you are right, you are crazy. The saddest part is that you KNOW you are crazy and you are STILL benching Beltran? That makes no sense.

Honestly, I'm just playing a hunch. I've got Pierre, Giles, Green and Ordonez to take his spot, so it's not like I'm replacing him for a scrub.

Sweeney is great against lowe.

I think he's 8 for 15 with a few HR's

hopefully he has a big day

Still, I always think there are players you can't bench. Beltran is definately one of them.

I don't know. Isn't Beltran cold right now? (I don't know; traded Beltran for Sheffield, Derrek Lee and Mulder last winter so I'm understandably trying my best to ignore Beltran, DAMN IT!).

It may be a good move. If it's not, you shouldn't feel bad because I'm an idiot anyway (AND SO ARE YOU! We should start a club!! ;-) )

Why would I be an idiot for starting a 1st-round draft pick??? Yeah, that's real stupid.

Beltran is on the bench. The game in Boston is in a rain delay. Beltran's replacement in my lineup (Shawn Green) is 2/2 w/ 2 doubles and 1 RBI. Man, if that game in KC gets rained out...IN YOUR FACE, NAYSAYERS!
