This is going to be a great story to watch.
You know who else could throw 95mph? Mike MacDougal.

The problem with Anderson was always his attitude, work ethic and lack of intelligence. They can make him a pitcher but he'll still be Brian Anderson.

So who's better, Flowers plus 2 years of Javy and Anderson/Erstad/Owens or Young.

To date I'd say Young, although his career numbers aren't all that remarkable. Stupid Javy, I was really excited for him to pitch for us when the trade happened.

Mike MacDougal has pitched 314.2 MLB innings with a career 4.04 FIP. I'm not following your logic.

Jeesh Chris Young has one above average season on a bad team 5 years after we trade him and that makes it a bad trade? Makes sense.


We also get Quinten becasue Young is on the Diamondbacks...that alone makes the Chris Young trade ok.

Compared to the output of Erstad, Terrero, Owens and Wise? I'd say the rope would have been long, very, very long.

I would really like to see a video of him pitching. I just can't picture it.

Maybe invoking the name "Andy Sisco" would have been a better example.

Well, I disliked the guy as CF with the Sox, but I wouldn't go that far.

I hope he does well, gets his head on straight and has a decent career, except for vs. the Sox.

But we wouldn't have been watching those guys, we would have been watching Young strike out 150 times and bat less than .250 for the season. I think after 2 years of that the patience would have run out.

My friend does play by play for the Burlington Bees (A for Kansas City Royals). He texted me last night to tell me Brian Anderson has been put on the Bees.

Too bad for me that the Bees are done traveling to Michigan for the year; they don't have any games left against the Lugnuts, Loons, or Whitecaps. If they did, I'd definitely try to get to some to see him pitch.
