I guess the kids in Florida were calling their own pitches.
Difference is that the Marlins staff was able to execute. You can call the best game in the world, but if your staff keeps missing location or hanging the pitch over the middle of the plate, you look like an idiot. Pudge never had a group of talent like they have in Florida. It's the talent of the pitchers involved. It's not a matter of if Pudge calls a good game or not. That was proven last year since he actually had some talent to work with.
Oh yeah, and that's from a Rangers fan.
Anyway, as to the Kendall possible trade, the Pirates would have to kick in some money. Kendall's contract is way too high and I just don't see the Mariners picking the entire thing up.
Thanks for the heads up though.

He helped his rep last year, but hell, i could probably call a good game with that staff. (of course, i couldn't catch the ball). Kendall has had about as little to work with as pudge did in texas, and still has somehow come out with the good rep. All of this is subjective, of course. In no way am i saying that kendall is anywhere in Pudge's realm, but I was trying to point out that, behind the dish overall, Kendall may be better than people think.
