I got through three innings of Mike and the Mad Dog calling today's game on WFAN before I went and poured wax in my ears to clog them up again. Chris Russo mispronounced three names in about 46 seconds, and Mike Francesca just about broke his arm patting himself on the back. And the game wasn't that great either. An ofer from David Wright today. But hey, 2 out of 3 with the back end of the rotation is okay. I feel a sweep in Florida.
I'm Steve Reynolds, and I approve this trade. Very much so, even if El Duque used to be on the crosstown enemy. As a guy visiting my office said today, "I would have traded Jorge Julio for a glass of water."
This trade, fresh off the newswire, I'm not so sure of. Has anyone heard of this guy? And can he be any better than Allay Soler? After that first inning last night, the "Cuban defect" looked good to me. I guess Omar Minaya just figures if you throw enough pitchers up against the wall, one of them is bound to have an ERA of about 4.00.
