    From reading it, it appears the point is to build a bridge to the peach orchard, so you can listen to suicide rock, while watching aging baseball players eat peaches in japan. Other than that, it seems like mold. No one really wanted it to begin with, but it just won't die.
    Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

    I was the one that made the reference to Richard Hand. It was ment tongue-in-cheek but, unfortunately, I got my reference wrong. Chip simply corrected that.

    It was a reference to another time on this board and it was ment in fun. Geez!

    I always like getting updates on the guy who was going to be "the next George Foster".

For the cost of Petagine the Reds could acquire Petagine and offer to soak up part of Casey's contract in a deal. They need to be thinking about these kinds of things moving forward.
    Hey, NEIL, build a bridge and get over it.

    Unfortunately, NEIL can dish it out (telling everyone and his brother to "build a bridge and get over it") but he cannot take it when someone else tells him that even when it was meant in a joking manner. As for the Drew Nelson reference, someone mentioned that Richard Hand used to be very high on Petagine and I was just saying that it was Drew Nelson who was the big RP fan.

    Getting back to the subject at hand, RP is, was and always will be a ham-n-egger on the major league level. A AAAA player at best. The Reds weren't the only team to give up on him. He has had various chances with several teams including a season long stint with the Mets or the Padres - I can't remember which one. I'm happy he's having success and making money over in Japan. But there's a huge difference in doing well in Japan and doing well in the major leagues. Just as there is a huge difference between doing well in AAA and doing well in the majors.

    Shouldn't you be moderating or something.
    Yep. The Search feature is a wonderful thing. It brought up 25 of your most recent posts and it took me 5 minutes to find those 3. The context you used in your posts was the exact same context I used when I told you to "build a bridge". Now take your NyQuil and go back to sleep. :zzz:

    Re: I had a dream....

    I woke up with a great smile -- feeling much better and totally rested and ready to face the troubles of my day.

    Now were you saying anything important there Chippy????
    Too bad for you it was just a dream.

    Petagine really wanted to come back to North America this winter. He was asking for a $3 million one year contract this off-season from a major league team, before his Japanese team jumped in with a 2-year $12 million deal. So he won't come back to the U.S. until at least the 2005 season. By then he'll be 34 or 35, I think.

    It really would have been interesting to see him get another chance in the U.S, while he was in the prime of his career. I don't think his MLB teams were patient enough with him.

    Major league equivalencies suggest that he would have hit at least as well as Hideki Matsui in the U.S. and probably much better.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
