    After watching the pathetic debacle AB's of these last three games, it will be great to have a smart professional AB to plug into the lineup.

    Wouldn't be returning to the team if his head wasn't clear.
    I agree! But if he returns with the same type of hitting as when he left, he's not going to help.

    If we can get last year's Zobrist it would be amazing

    You missed the post where he said the fiery manager who yells was made out of frustration/emotion and wasn't really how he felt. THEN he suggested Zobrist.

The rest of the year is basically seeing who stays for next year and no one on this team is off limits and I think Theo is tired of seeing the talent not execute so if the offense does what it did last year in the last month or two then a
    Major piece is gone. They mentioned Bryant this past off season as possibly being shopped and thatís my bold off season prediction this year into next
    Well you already owe me $200. Double or nothing on Bryant getting traded this offseason?

    Gotcha. It seemed like an interesting contrast.

    It would be great if he did though!
    I think the biggest difference he will make is his presence in the dugout..
    He may be just what they need to loosen up and and get that winning mentality back

    Whatever positive he does on the field will just be gravy

    Slim if the reason why he left was to be with his kids..
