Bonds - He blasted off I think 8 HRs in the pre season alone. He has 9 now after last night. Couple that with how you CONSTANTLY must monitor every day if he is even going to be in the lineup and it gets to be bothersome.
Matt Kemp - Kid is an absolute MONSTER hitting .378 with 7 HRs, 16 RBI, 13 runs scored, and 3 SB in only 45 at bats, yet Grady Little still won't give him the starting job! Another situation that has to constantly be monitored.
And, with both of these guys playing on the West Coast, you don't find out if they are playing or not until well after all the other games in MLB have already began. So, when they are not in the lineup, you can't even sub a player in for them. You just have to take a loss at that position for the night.
I am a New York Jets, New York Mets, and New York Knicks fan. I know misery like few other sports fans know ...
