He is one of the best, if not the best pitcher available on the market this year for what it is going to cost to get him. Ozzie stupidly labeled him as unclutch because he has the intelligence of a small child and that has tanked his value within the White Sox system because the only GM stupid enough to listen to ozzie is Kenny Williams. If I were to play the percentages, I'd say that Javvy is going to have a dominant year next year. It would be foolish to pass up on an offer for a pitcher of this caliber for what the asking price is.
Baseball is not necessarily an obsessive-compulsive disorder, like washing your hands 100 times a day, but it's beginning to seem that way. We're reaching the point where you can be a truly dedicated, state-of-the-art fan or you can have a life. Take your pick. ~Thomas Boswell
Having a life is overrated.
