Lets See ... They have ..
Griffey .. Best trade bait
Kearns .. Best OF
Dunn .. Move him to 1B .. then 220 BA won't look so bad
Branyon .. 2nd best chance of getting hurt
Guillen .. Want's to play .. can ya blame him
Taylor .. Former number one .. rotting on the bench
Mateo .. would be ok if he had a steady gig..
7 OF ... all could
be starting ... all should
be starting ..
And no pitching ... I think that when Bowden is on the phone .. he is like the guy trying to offer "you"
.. well .. say Reggie Taylor .. for Hideo Nomo .. sorry not interested .. The league is full of under-acheiveing OF right now.
Now .. If they had a new manager, someone who works wonders with pitching .. say like .. .. ..
Jeff Torborg .. well then ... hmmm
