I'm just saying.....


A weekly collection of random thoughts and observations for you to consider.

  • As crazy as it sounds, and as much as Brett Myers wouldn't want to hear it, the uproar over Cliff Lee pinch running probably led to him being left off the NLCS roster.
  • Cole Hamels histrionics after some misplays in the field can be insidiously damaging to a team and reminds you that he is still very young. His comments suggest that he does not understand the import of eliminating this from his repertoire, so it is critical for Charlie, Chase or Jimmy to remind him how uncool it is and that it has got to change. I wonder how Cole would react to Rollins or Utley throwing their hands in the air when he surrenders a home run or issues a walk?
  • Does the Jumbotron in Dallas display "Yeh, baby!" when the Cowboys new found star receiver makes a big play?
  • Is that a mullet under the cap of Troy Tulowitzki?
  • What"s up with Craig Sager standing next to Jimmy Rollins in the batting circle prior to Game 1 while delivering a somewhat unflattering portrayal of batting discipline? Nothing worse than a tactless, smarmy, smart aleck to match his attire.
  • Watching Joe Torre lumber to the mound seemingly weighed down by gravity and the embarrassment of wearing a uniform designed for young athletes makes me wonder about the purpose of such a ritual anyway? Why does baseball require a reluctant manager to make a slow trek to the mound every time he wants to change pitchers?
