In the year 2005...

Joe Crede: .252, .303
Joe Randa: .276, .335

Not enough of a sample size, you say?

In the year 2004...

Joe Crede: .239, .299
Joe Randa: .287, .343

The good news is that, using the data to make projections, by 2015 Crede will be hitting .356 while randa will be down to .188

This WSJ guy is satisfied with Crede's .250 average. I'm not.

During Game 5 of the ALCS, in a moment of passion, I vowed never again to call Crede a bum. And I'll stick with that vow. But I will never, ever ignore the fact that there are far better offensive third basemen out there and that we can upgrade at the position.

A career year for Crede is worse than a downyear for Randa. That's a fact.

Joe Randa also recently turned 36. His production will drop off eventually. Also the post is talking about how WSJ was obessed with Randa, who is still a slighty above average 3B at best. WSJ and you are sharing the same opinons. I'm not saying Crede is a great 3B, but if you want to replace him why Joe Randa???

I never came out in favor of acquiring Randa. I merely stated that Randa was a superior offensive third baseman and that we should not mock people who would have preferred him over Crede in the recent past.

No, we should save all of our mocking for people who make goofy batting average charts.

Randa is not superior to Crede if you ask me. Unless you're a Yankees fan and all you care about is offense. You know Crede plays defense too. AND he's a very clutch hitter. The 2005 playoffs wasn't some fluke, he's been delivering clutch hits for the last few years now.

Joe Crede helped the Sox win the World Series: Joe Randa didn't. Give it up.

I'm surprised Homey didn't have a cute little graph to go along with his contentions. :D:

Look I'd love to get Randa too as a back up, but now that the Sox have Macoviak they really don't have that big of a need for him do they?

Lip, you are a changed man, and I am so happy for it (as are all Sox fans!)!

The plight of the Pirates:

Randa was a key member of the 1997 Pirates team that, despite having a $9 million opening-day payroll that was less than what Albert Belle of the Chicago White Sox (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/chw/) made by himself

They beat us to it. We shoulda have got him before the allstar break

Not a bad pick up for the Pirates, though.

Really?
General annoyance I guess - putting a Sox uniform on RAnda was stupid.

He's still going strong on one of the other sites I occassionally lurk at. Looks like he's calmed down slightly since this summer though.

It's amazing how attention WSJ has drawn, even since he's been away from this site. Every now and then, a new member wants to know who he is and why he was banned. It's funny.
