sOx and nats and Team
Wayward O: Nick?
Ted Williamsburg: Matt
Wayward O: Matt is not the savior. Matt is God
Ted Williamsburg: So God is a .234 hitter?
Wayward O: He has to scale down his immortal strength to fit the ballfield. Give him time. Tonite I think we do battle with the Red Sux
Ted Williamsburg: I got to watch the Smoltz implosion from the comfort of a box seat in DC last week. I look forward to feasting on yer pitchers in yer house
Wayward O: I predict you will tee off on Berken tonight .... we'll win Tues. and Wed. will be a good one
Ted Williamsburg: What makes you think you'll win Tues.? Hill's 6.03 ERA?
Wayward O: Hill can be eerily good every now and then. So ... that is the basis for my prediction. I would not put the college fund on it
Ted Williamsburg: That kid Zimmermann that manhandled to Sox on Thursday is the real deal
Wayward O: The Narts could conceivably get good in a hurry. Esp. in NL Least
Ted Williamsburg: How's that?
Wayward O: If those Young Fellas in the rote turn out to be decent
Ted Williamsburg: They ain't got enough bats. And man are they station-to-station on the basepaths
Wayward O: Well they can always buy a few more bats. No reason for them to share bats
Ted Williamsburg: Zing!
Wayward O: No I think Zimmeman / Dunn and potentially one more guy would be a decent power / RBI trio. But I got my own problems
Ted Williamsburg: Like Nick the Stick Johnson
Wayward O: He might be done
Ted Williamsburg: You'll see just how done Johnson is when the Sox pick him up at the deadline
Wayward O: I hope Nick Johnson isn't done. He's Okay. That broken leg business was ugly
Ted Williamsburg: He's having a pretty decent season
Wayward O: So what happens to Ortiz if you get N.J.? PH for NL games? Situational?
Ted Williamsburg: Nuthin' -- Nick plays first twice a week while Yuke moves over to third to spell Lowell's hip and picks up odd starts at DH. And first. And PH
Wayward O: That's a lot of slow left handed beef but OK. I'd stick Papi at short just once. After wrapping up division of course
Ted Williamsburg: Natch
