Re: Your favorite Jocketty deal?
For so long after Bowden left (and I shudder as I say this), and maybe before, we tended to take players from the trash bin. A Majewski and Bray here and a (insert name) there, but no one of any significance. All of a sudden, along came Rolen, Choo, and Ludwick. Add to that Marshall, Madsen (good idea), Broxton and the footfalls, but solid choices. No more fodder. Great baseball judgment and performance. I'm all in. now if we can forget valdez's last year, and Cairo in 2012, as well as some others, the record is clear.
