I am not second guessing the trade which cut me to the core as a huge Carlos fan but with him at 43 RBIs leading the NL I do think he could be on track for a career year with 40 hrs and 140-150 rbis. Certainly he is filling the role that the Brewers wanted. I love Pods so it is just one of those trades that is good for both teams.

I do think that with our current pitching staff we could have won in any of the last 3 years. It really was the pitching all thru this period. That fifth starter spot and the bullpen. I sure hope Vizzy comes around as he was a key part of that trade as well as payroll freed up. And Carlos' price will be going up with the big numbers he is putting up. BA is not great but 11homers and 43 rbis rock.

Hope these idle observations do not offend too much.

That's great for Carlos. Brewers fan better not get to used to him because if he keeps hitting like that, he's going to be getting some big money from someone.

- by the way "cabello" means "hair"

El Cabello means "The Hair" in Spanish. The hair is on fire? Wow!

I just traded him thinking I sold high :?:


This was the Rockies for this series where he got 6 RBI in 2 games... but I do think he'll have a great season with all those speedsters in front of him. Great job Carlos.

Not at all. I did say Carlos Lee would be an NL All-Star in that bogus league.

140 RBI's sounds like a stretch to me. But I guess he got 113 here, with lesser leadoff men. I said all along he would be missed, but still love Pods.

I thought El Cabello was translated to the horse.

Good. I paid $35 for him in my NL-only league.

I wasn't a fan of the trade at the time. Still, I think this will end up being one of those rare instances where both teams are satisfied with the deal. Pods is going to be ours at a cheap price for another three years, I believe. It's nice to know that you can plug him and Iguichi into the top of the order through at least 2007.

"Ay, ay, ay, mi cabello!" Finally, the Brewers have found a way to make Carlos run out those lazy pop ups.

Pelo is a general term for hair. Cabello is hair on your head. Spanish is a very colloquial language. Some Spanish speakers say pelo, others cabello, and some both. Depends on where you learned the language.

Anyone else hear Bob Uecker's homerun call of Carlos Lee's blast last night? I heard it on Mike & Mike this morning. Uke did his "get up, get up" thing before saying "homerun for El Caballo"... but then, Uecker started whinnying & braying like horse! LOL!

Uke rules! :bandance:

Yea I caught the Uecker call. It was hilarious and gave CLee much pub. I imagine that CLee is a fan fav already with 12 hrs and 43 rbis.

The horse rides again!!! LOL

CLee was always one of my favs but I guess it is working out so far. I bet he hits .300 again by the end of the season with lotsa sexy numbers. Is He a free agent at the end of this season?

Finally, the Brewers have found a way to make Carlos run out those lazy pop ups.The question is, how long until he stands at home plate admiring his work while the ball hits the wall instead of the seats?
