Vlad News!!

Postby xtrm84 » Tue Mar 01, 2005 6:44 pm

I work as an office yuppy in Angels stadium so I follow them religiously and heard some interesting rumors today about Vlad, I heard from the reporters office that Vlad has had problems all winter and is thinking about surgury before the season starts on his knees. They dont know how to break this to the press. Now all we do is wait and see. OC Register.....can you hear me??

Vlad looked like an old man in the playoffs last year. The way he was walking, he looked like he was in rough shape. And yet he played winter ball too...

Usually I don't believe stories like this but to pretend that you work in Angel Stadium to get attention would be really pathetic so I'll take you're word for now.

Anyway... Pujols has plantar fascitis, Vlad apparently has bad knees, Beltran is healthy as a horse and taking batting practice against 155 MPH tennis balls and naming the numbers written on them. Yep, sounds like a #1 pick to me.

*Disclaimer: Obviously I'm joking around a little here... so don't take what I said verbatim.

He's not gonna have proof if it hasn't been reported by any news source yet.

What's he gonna do, bring in the guy who heard it from the guy who started it?

Not saying he's not telling the truth but come on, if there's no write-up about it there's no proof yet.

He sure played a lot of Winter Ball for a guys whose knees were bothing him. ;-)

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
