Just picked up Justin Upton and Chris Johnson from the Dbacks for Prado, Delgado and some prospects. I’m happy but also not so happy with this. We just went from a team who could get on base but not score runs to a team who strikes out a lot but can hit bombs.
It is unfortunate that we had to give up Prado (we couldn’t come to an agreement for his long term deal). I guess the batting order would look something like:
Justin Upton LF
BJ Upton CF
McCann C (when he comes back)
People still watch baseball? Hmm, you learn something new every day.
Seriously! Its fun to play but horrible to watch. Occasionally I’ll watch an inning or two but always catch myself saying “How do people watch this???”. It amazes me that MBL makes so much more money then NBA and NHL. I’m guessing its just because they play double the games.
Seems like I watch heavily at the start of the year, right around the All-Star break, and playoffs. I can’t watch 9 innings of all 162(?) games though. Should have great speed on the bases this year, I still miss Deion and Otis at the top of the order.
