Favorite Quotes:

The switch-hitting Miles clearly outperformed right-handed hitting Jackson offensively, batting .281 with a .317 on-base percentage

Miles also has knocked four extra-base hits, including three triples.


Miles also showed the versatility with the bat that the Rockies are emphasizing. He laid down a couple of sacrifice bunts and showed a willingness to bunt for hits


Switch Hitter with speed that plays the Middle Infield, glad we don't need a guy like that!

He hit about the same as Harris and Uribe. He would have been in Charlotte already if he was on the Sox.

Just because he won the job doesn't mean he WON the job.

A guy who wins a job with a .317 OBP, no one needs a player like that.

And now he has a double-team partner of Royce Clayton! Holy ****! The Rockies are going all the way!

Its already really clear what will happen. With an assist from Coors, Miles will bat around .290 with no walks and no power and people will rant and rave about how KW got ripped off much along the lines of Josh Fogg's performance the season after the Ritchie deal.

Of course. Clayton will hit like .240 in the thin Rocky Mountain air and folks will be clammoring for his return, too.

Are you saying that the rocky mountain air is good for .140 points?

Oh, let's not be mean. I'm only giving him 90 points on his BA. :D:

Young cheap minor league player Miles should have been exploited by the Sox management. Why wasn't he? Kenny likes Willie Harris better? If so, why get Uribe? Miles should have had a shot with the Sox BEFORE they picked up R. Alomar.

Miles was never really considered for an big league spot with the Sox,he was signed as a minor league F/A to fill roster space in Birmingham.

Colorado might be the worst thing for Babe K-layton. After he sees one ball go further then it should, he'll have that upeer cut down pat in no time for more pop-ups then he hit here.
