A bad-contract swap like the one you proposed can only work if it's made before the fans have time to marshal their opposition. Thus, "If it were Dunn when 'tis Dunn, then t'were well it were Dunn quickly."

(Just trying to bring the subject back to site speed!) (Also it's late and I may be incoherent.)

He is probably the most gifted player in baseball except for Pujols, but he is 30 already. Combine his injuries with his off-the-field issues and I think you may have the Hack Wilson of the 21st Century. I'm a Cub fan, and like the White Sox also having lived in Chicago for a while. I like the Rangers because I'm a Nolan Ryan fan, and a George W. Bush fan, big fan of Bush! I lived in Fort Worth for a while too. My cats name is Sally. I like Konerko also, and Damon, Jemille Weeks, Alex Gordon, Delmon Young will be great one day, Berkman HoF, Kinsler I like he takes his walks. I don't like anything in the state of Wisconsin. Ever notice that in every WWII movie all the German speaking American translators are from Wisconsin? I think to this day there are still Nazi sympathizers in the cheese state and something that needs to be kept an eye on. Nazis = bad! I hate the Brewers.

But Timothy P., you are admirably loyal to Juan Pierre, Michael Young, Carlos Zambrano, Josh Hamilton, and your cat, whose name, I must confess, I have forgotten.

And I don't even know what team you root for. My guesses are the Cubs, the Brewers, the White Sox or the Rangers.

No Neil, I'm just a regular Amercan, no hyphen! Just a man and his cat.

Kind of like having Jim Hendry around too long.

KETCHUP ON STEAK: isn't there an 11th Commandment against that?

ZAMBRANO: I've posted here before, that he needs to go to an AL team where he can DH on non-pitching days. He will ONLY be happy when he has HIS way. I recommend the Yankees if they'll have him. On a pennant contender he'll have to put up or shut up. Maybe he'd be good for middle relief, to set up the 9th for Mariano Rivera. Just make sure he doesn't leave the ball park early, so he can watch Rivera and see how a real PRO handles pressure.

To echo what a couple others have just commented, my laptop is only a year-and-a-half old and runs great (knock on wood). I use Firefox, always. Just got back from Chicago, and, in the hotel, the common computers only offered IE as a browser (didn't waste the 10 seconds, to find out which version, but I'm sure that it was a newer version). What a terrible product. Slow, and rendering sites incorrectly. Ugh.

I'll also echo some other comments, which have stated that "I am on here far too much." Timmy, I'll admit to thinking that on some of your worse days, I've felt the same about you- but (again, echoing some other comments) #31 was a killer! LOL

Zambrano, at this point, is actually the best pitching hitter in baseball. (Sorry, Rick Ankiel. It was a good run.) I'd thought, 'well, why not ship him across town to the Sox? They need a DH.' Imagine my surprise when I saw that very same idea in one of the Chi papers a few days ago. Sox fans were not enamored with the thought, however- one comment went something like 'fans are going to be (going after somebody) with pitchforks and torches if this happens'.

I guess that this fan felt that what is Dunn is Dunn.
(Guess I've been on here a little too long myself!! *groans)

My biggest pet peeve with them? You have to watch 3-4 freaking video ads WHEN USING GAMEDAY. It's not even game footage you're watching and yet they think a video ad there is appropriate.
