I like what Dickerson said and his attitude. Hopefully '09 will be his year to claim center as his own. Kinda funny how Fay had the mic only on Dickerson so I couldn't hear the questions quite as well as the answers. woops

How about this question? How does it feel to play for an idiot manager who doesn't recognize that you're a capable CenterFielder for 2009? or,.... Why would Jockety consider another Corey Patterson clone in Willy Tavarez (.302 OPS, .296 SLG in 500 PA's last season) instead of recognizing you for what you brought to the club in 2008 at both the AAA and Major League levels? or,.... When the light went on for you after Bruce was called up to the Majors (May 29th), and you OPS'd the rest of the season at both AAA and the Majors nearly 1.000, did you think that would lead to a legitimate opportunity to earn the starting CenterField job for 2009?
