    Give me another example of finding a guy like Dickey?

    odds of that ever happening again are basically zero.

    I have to say, the first few months should be somewhat exciting seeing all of these new guys play.

    Then it'll be MOAR LOSSESSSSSS!

    I like the upside with this move. Good power in the minors, and a pretty nice walk rate as well. Hopefully he isn't a defensive liability. He was solid in his very limited time with Colorado.

    See the videos I posted. He's far from a defensive liability and moves pretty well.

    A good arm doesn't necessarily mean he can't be a liability. But odds are if he can go 46 games and post a 3.0 UZR he is exponentially better than Duda.

    ****, I'm going to cry when Lucas Duda makes this team out of ST.

    He moves well pretty well actually. He looks to have average range with a cannon arm.

    And LOL on Duda, I feel the same way.

    I know it was in Colorado Springs, but Brown hit .308/.364/.597 with 33 2B and 24 HR in 438 PA. His minor league equivalency calculator projects to a .255/.305/.467 line in the majors, or a .772 OPS.

    But he's shown nice walk rates in the past, so that OBP could be higher.

    Wow... really enjoyed those clips from earlier stuna. Ya never know... we'll see. I HIGHLY doubt we resign Hairston. Coming off a season with 20 HR's when he didn't even play full time, he's gonna try to cash in as much as he can. This will probably be his best chance of his career to do so, and we obviously won't pay it right now.

    He needed to be protected on the 40 man roster I believe, and they didn't have room.

    Their outfield as it stands now is: Carlos Gonzalez, Dexter Fowler, and Michael Cuddyer with Tyler Colvin as 4th OF. Eric Young Jr. and Charlie Blackmon are on the team too, so there is no room.

    On the plus side his MLBA was 60pts higher than Jason Bay's...of course that's still piss poor at best....

    Andrew Brown: The latest PBTB

    Interestingly enough, someone once wrote a song about his sister:

    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    First few months? We'll be lucky if they're exciting the first few weeks.

    I would take it a step further Mr. FoC.

    Andrew Brown is simultaneously today's PBTB and the Mets most recent APH.

    A true feat.

    Indeed.
