Interesting indeed...

Manny will certainly put up better numbers than Pujols, although I don't expect too much of a sophomore slump from Albert, considering how consistent he looked last year. If you have another decent option at 3b (or you have free agents available), go ahead and make this trade. If you'll be stuck with someone atrocious at the hot corner, I wouldn't do this, although if the other team throws in a 3b (perhaps with you adding a lesser of), it could work.

Sounds like a golden opportunity for you!

That is damn funny.

How far back would you have to go to find something equally stupid being said about ARod I wonder...

Hehe, unfortunately the Cafe doesn't go back that far. I was looking for something truly horendous, but this was the best I could find. If it didn't reference this being Ajols' "2nd year", I probably woulda duped some people. :-D
