"No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference." ~Tommy Lasorda
GM's didn't start routinely claiming players off waivers solely to block other clubs from getting them until Bowden. The first time I can remember it happening was when he claimed Mariano Duncan from the Phillies in 1995 so that the Braves couldn't get him. The Reds didn't actually have any interest in Duncan--they just didn't want Atlanta to have him.
Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.
Shuffle the deck chairs all you want, the fact of the matter is this offense isn't any good, and you can make all of the changes you want, but it isn't going to mean a thing at this point. Let's just hope Cueto shows up in a big way.
HUBBA A man who knows everything,just can't remember it all at one time.
