He was talking about Thomas? I was only half-listening, and thought that he was talking about Harris.

It's great that Thomas hit a HR, but they should just burn his glove! Not only did he f-up a ground ball, but now he just f'd up a pickoff play! There is NO EXCUSE for a professional to f'up a pickoff play when he is playing 1B!

Thanks guys. Man, I cannot deny it any longer. We truly do have two bonafide stoppers in our rotation. Considering one of them throws 98 and is immediately followed by another ace who *maybe* hits 87 while mixing it up painting the corners - there are gonna be a lot of hitters leaving the Cell all of the sudden finding themselves in hitting slumps this summer!

Yeah, he's just pissed off. He said something to the umpire between innings. Levine and Rooney said it looked like it was on purpose...

Apparently Micelli (pitcher) is known for that crap. Konerko was talking to the ump during the half inning, apparently.

I know it's still the early going, but has anyone else noticed how both Rios and Daubach have been hitting really well this spring? Good problem to have I guess, but how does this effect the bench (probably eliminates the slim chance of carrying 3 catchers?)

03-10-2003, 08:03 PM
Farmer mentioned on the wrap up how Porzio has about another five days to get it together if he wants to make the team, that Manager Gandhi is starting to notice these things (i.e. how he's performing...)

Maybe Porzio should just pitch in the Carribean League or whatever since he seems to do pretty good everywhere else, BUT with the major league team...

At least that's one less person that's out of the mix that could also have had the nickname GasCan... :gulp:


Champ out...
