I'm thinking he's kidding. But I could be wrong.
Escobar pitched great today. I'm kicking myself because someone convinced me that the Jays were on fire, and I sat him. But anyway -- I winced when I saw how his game ended today. Not because I'm a shell-shocked Escobar owner, but because I'm a shell-shocked Cafe member. And I knew when I came here today I'd get to see some snide comments about Escobar, that delicate hot house flower. The guy's one of the most talented pitchers in the American league. And if he hadn't had a bunch of injuries over the years, he would be drafted every year way before I was ready to take him. Instead, I was able to pick him up in like round 20. I love it when guys like this develop this kind of reputation, because they become great bargains. Sure I hope he stays healthy, but none of us should have spent so much on him that he deserves to have abuse piled upon him. I love the guy!
