There's a difference between falling off a dirt bike, running into a wall, and popping your ankle wiffing on a curveball.

Well, without DL time. He was nursing his constantly sore groin the entire second half of the year.

Are you actually trying to say Rowand is more grindier than Erstad?

BTW, Erstad's ankles grind at over the speed of light so it is impossible to see with a normal television camera what really happens when Darin swings at a curveball. To you or I, it looks like Darin just swings and misses, but that is not the case. He actually puts the bat down, slides head-first into first base, makes a diving catch in CF, stalks and kills a wild animal with his bare hands, steals someone's job, records and produces a solo album, returns to the plate, and then swings and misses. The sheer amount of friction applied to Darin's ankle during this so-called "at-bat" is so incredible that the steel inside temporarily melts, causing him to fall down and later exit the ballgame.

If I remember correctly - Pods did spend some time in August 05 on the DL - he only played 129 games in 2005 and 139 games in 2006.

I don't even think we're paying him a million.

Of all the players on this team that have been a waste this year, Darin Erstad ranks about 23rd.

Mock a young player - wonderful, have at it. Meanwhile, this team full of slap hitting veterans is an embarassment.

True, but only because the rest of the hitters are so bad. .310 OBP and 2 homers isn't close to good hitting.

No, but given what we were counting on from him, and the job he did in the leadoff spot when Pods was out (.295 AVG/.338 OBP), he's far from the top of reasons why this team has been bad this year. He's probably one of the few players who you can say did his job this year when he was out there.

If a Sox CF era is to begin, it will be the Sweeney Era.

Luis Tererro is and always will be a minor league star and a major league bench player. To expect anything else is asking for trouble.

So what happened to him today?
I sure would rather him out there than Mack.

Terrero is a fourth outfielder and a platoon player, IMO.

Priority No. 1 right now has to be rebuilding this team up the middle. We're set at catcher with AJ. We definitely need a new SS and a new CF. A decision needs to be made on Iguchi.
