"Those guys (Anderson and May), I don't feel like they have the stuff to strike me out six times,'' Valentin said. "They're not that tough. Maybe I was just overanxious, because I was seeing the ball good. I just couldn't make contact.''

-Jose Valentin on his struggles hitting left-handed against the Kansas City Royals

This guy has the biggest mouth in baseball. Period.

Uh, Jose?

Yes, they DO have the stuff to strike you out 6 times, BECAUSE THEY STRUCK YOU OUT 6 TIMES!

I don't have a problem with Jose saying that. He is better than that, and I'm glad he has confidnece. Would you rather him say, geez those crappy lefties really have my number. He's a leader and I want him talking. He's going to come around soon, hopefully today. Either way, I don't have a problem with that comment.

Frankly, I would prefer that he says nothing at all as opposed to talking about how bad the guys that just struck him out 6 times were.

I don't have a problem w/ guys shooting their mouths off IF they can back it up. I know that Jose is capable of doing, but he hasn't proven it yet(lefty v. lefty). If he had made that statement after just taking one of them deep, then it would have been great. That clearly wasn't the case.

I would rather he just keep his pornstachioed mouth shut. However, he seems pathologically unable to do that.

It is fine if he is hitting. But to go 0-6 with 6 Ks and say those two lefties don't have good stuff is just stupid. That Cubbishly stupid if you ask me.

He struck out in those at bats, so the results weren't there. However, he made good contact, they just went foul. They were hard hit fouls at that. With that said, it's not like he was completely over matched. Besides, you guys make it sound like he had a press conference to make that statement. He was asked a question, and he responded. And his response showed confidence, and he has reason to be. I stand by my opinion.

More than a few of those balls he missed by a foot...

I like it too. I'm glad Jose came out and basically said it was inexcusable for him to fan six times against those clowns.
