They are talking about Aaron Miles right now. About how it was a "steal" for the Rockies to get him for "veteren" Juan Uribe.


First off, I think we got the better end of the deal by a LONG shot, and since when is a 24 year old a "veteren."


What is next, they gonna tell us that picking up Pollitte was stupid too?

hah, i think they have it the wrong way around. miles is the guy thats the veteran. isnt he 28 years old?

even if aaron miles had a better average/hr/whatever, i think uribe is a better fit for the sox than miles would have. also, if youre aaron, you have to thank your lucky stars to be playing in coors.

Well one of them is a Caray, so I guess an apple doesn't fall far from a tree.

I am pretty sure it has to do with how far they are leading off.

Skip Caray is from St. Louis and Don Sutton is from Alabama, not sure where the other broadcasters are from. But it seems like nobody is from Atlanta anymore.

There's Atlanta, and then there's the South. The two are almost completely separate entities.
