Don't know if anyone saw this - but Petey has a blurb about us in the bottom of this 2001 recap.

A new CF? How bout a good pitcher or two?

How many pitchers can this team have?
We are in need of a legitimate lead-off hitter in a big way.

But then again what the hell do I know?

Can't argue with that. "Fences" Durham needs to go or find another spot toward the bottom of the lineup.

I don't think so but if he is then for sure you can kiss Carlos Lee good bye.

Good question. For 5 straight years, we used all of our high draft choices on pitchers - and we have a bunch of highly regarded pitchers.

Of course, what we have little of is position players. How about trading some pitching for a lead off guy, a shortstop.

Broken record.

Yes broken record indeed. 85 years of history show that they won't.

Yeah, it's too bad Boras is Johnny Damon's agent. As for pitching, sure we have a lot of guys, but how many of them are good?

The potential rotation of Boomer/Buehrle/Garland/Glover/Your Mom doesn't exactly make me wet my pants.

I do agree about moving Ray down in the batting order. Maybe we could kidnap Ichiro.
