Griffey is out of the All Star Game

Postby DaQ » Sun Jul 11, 2004 12:41 pm

They didn't say who would replace him yet, but there goes the "All-500 OF".

My two guesses to replace Griffey are:

-Pujols in the HR Derby, but I don't know who replaces his roster spot

-Teammate Adam Dunn replaces Griffey on the roster and maybe the HR Derby.

J.D. Drew is having a great season, I'd like to see him go to Houston. As for the Derby, Pujols would be a great replacement

OMG Griffey had a hamstring injury? Geez didn't see this coming. :-b

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

things have a way of working themselves out.

Adrian Beltre!

And put Beltran in as the starting CFer.

;-D

EDIT: nevermind, I forgot Beltre is out with his ankle. Nix that idea...

Hell, start Berkman in center and get Aramis in there! If not, put JD Drew in center, but Im afraid he may get hurt there! :-o

JD Drew is a terrible human being. Makes Juan Gone look like Cal Ripken. Kid has no heart.

I'd take Beltre or Overbay.

WhiteHot, I disagree.

Okay, so the Philadelphia thing wasn't great. No heart doesn't quite say it, it's more greed. But if Philly didn't want to pay his price, that's their loss.

He tends to get injured a hell lot. His body's more fragile. Nobody knows JD's body more than JD. He knows if he can or cannot play. That's not for you to judge. Some can play through injuries, some can't.

He doesn't show many emotions on the field. That doesn't mean he doesn't have heart. You don't have to be like Tejada or Milton Bradley to show that you love the game. You don't have to wear a bigass smile on your face all day long to show you love the game. Some have different ways of expressing things. Drew is a more calm, cool, and collected type of person. That's his personality, it's not a lack of heart. Consequently, he's a pretty clutch player with his veins of ice.

I truly am appalled and amazed how much JD is hated around the game.
