Toldja he was gonna be traded and traded before the deadline. He’s off to the Braves – they NEED a good leadoff guy and center fielder and Nate McLouth has stunk up the joint since leaving Pittsburgh.
Ed Wade PAID the Braves to take Bourn AND he did not get Mike Minor (top notch pitcher) or ANY top guys ready for the majors. Braves fans are laughing themselves sick, just like the Phillies fans did.
Ed Wade – well, I just can’t say anything good because I am trying not to use Bad Words. Even Richard Justice can’t find real too much good to say except Ed Wade is trying to save his job. IF Crane and his basketball manager CEO do get the team, no reason to fire Ed Wade – he’s cheap and that’s what they want.
15) Dustin Keller (New York Jets) – His 55 receptions for 687 yards and five touchdowns is a little misleading. He scored the five touchdowns from Week Two through Week Five; he had no touchdowns the rest of the season. He is good, but not top-10 good, especially with the inconsistent Mark Sanchez as his quarterback.
14) Tony Moeaki (Kansas City Chiefs) – The rookie had a very strong campaign with 47 receptions for 55 yards and three touchdowns. Like Graham, he has a ton of upside (could finish in the top 10 this year), but the Chiefs have a much tougher schedule than they did in 2010. Expect some improvement, but not a really big jump in production.
I was hoping that he would start in right, but no.
But it was great that he came up and immediately got a hit – drove the second pitch he saw to the CF wall, driving in Quintero from first.
Downs and Sanchez are not good fielders. Happ gave up his usual 5 runs/5 innings, but 2 of them were Downs/Sanchez’ fault. Sanchez is just slow and Downs is just BAD.
Prince Fielder hit a 500′ (at least) solo homer off Aneury Rodriguez – THIRD deck. One of the longest ones I have ever seen in my life. Not sure why they always say that homers are so much shorter than they are – only 475′ my rear. It was certainly longer than the infamous one that Uncle hit off Lidge.
Well, the Mets had won 5 games straight and come off a 4 game sweep in Cincinnati. RA Dickey for the Mets was to take the mound against Yunesky Maya , who was still looking for his first career win and the Nationals. Dickey was plagued yet again by a case of “the offense hates me,” and despite only giving up 3 first inning runs, took a loss.
