    Player X? Is that Speed Racer's long lost brother (you young-pups won't understand!)?!?! Player X... I love it.

    This Player X character is having a heck of year so far. I wonder if he has a good attitude, gets along with teammates and is well-received by the fans and opposing teams?

    Back before HRs meant everything... Player X would be in serious consideration for the N.L. MVP award.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    If player X hits .380 and Team Y makes the playoffs Player X WILL BE the NL MVP.

    And Manager Z will be Manager of the Year. But will that be enough for a contract extension?
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    Probably not if banned from baseball ex-manager A is reinstated to the game.

    Not if Big-O has anything to say about it.

    Player X definitely seems to be playing better than the Name Brand 1Bs.

    The same point as the Bender update threads.

    That maybe the boys wouldn't be 30-21 without Player X. Or that the run differential would be about 35 fewer without player X. Or that a roster of $325K sub-par guys would be the worst team in baseball.

    And last but not least, giving some much deserved props to so-called Player X (and if it also pokes some gentle fun then who am I to complain!) :mhcky21:

    Re: Bender Update !!!

    I've been expecting this thread for a few days, after all Ben has been in a bad slump dragging his average down from .290 where it was for most of the season. It's time to mark him up as a failure but let us not forget the Reds' failures too in their own slumps- Kearns, Larue, Jimenez, Dunn.

    Ben, in his rookie year, matched Casey. Sure he is not going to do that this year, but lets see where he ends up at season's end before we take fun from his failure. Let's wait a bit on player X too. If Casey slips, so do the Reds.

    Also do not forget that the player the Reds received in return in that shrewd trade is now toiling in Buffalo below BB.

    Broussard shoos away his slump
    Monday, May 31, 2004
    Paul Hoynes
    Plain Dealer Reporter
    Strange thoughts were bubbling in Ben Broussard's head.

    He talked about burning incense or, maybe, a bat. He was open to any suggestion when Casey Blake offered him his old baseball shoes.


    "They were size 12," Broussard said. "Casey said there were a lot of hits in them."

    Broussard didn't need to hear another word. He grabbed the shoes, laced them up and waited for the hits to come Sunday in the Tribe's 4-3 victory over Oakland.

    It took a while.

    Tim Hudson struck out Broussard in the second inning. He bounced out to first in the fourth. By the time Broussard batted in the seventh, he was 0-for-27 and felt like he'd been fitted with a cement overcoat for the next episode of "The Sopranos."

    "You start feeling that weight," Broussard said.

    The weight lifted when Broussard lined a single off Eric Chavez's glove at third base.

    "It's like when you hit your first big-league home run . . . you don't remember anything," he said.

    Broussard has been through slumps in the minors, but never in the big leagues.

    "This is a different demon up here," he said.

    Broussard was happy the Indians won and that he went through a slump like this in May instead of September.

    "I've got four months to build on it," he said. "I can enjoy the off-day and come back Tuesday and start from ground zero."

    As for Blake's shoes, Broussard is keeping them.
