    So via this theory, all I have to do is start practicing and I can play CF at a major league level. I mean, I will work hard and alot of hours.

    IF Marty had said, "It was a good trade for the Reds because defensively, Pena just cant play in this league." that would be fine. Calling the guy lazy is just non needed and goes against what many reports have said. It was Marty trying to show he knows better than everyone else.

    Playing defense is a pretty big "aspect" of his game. If you can't get better at it you need to be a DH.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Absolutely. But BOS already has the best DH in the game. I get the feeling WMP is Manny insurance on the million to one chance that Manny flips out and does not want to play anymore. At least till he changes his mind.

    delta is spot on. I know people like and admire Marty for telling the truth but I think you can go too far in that. What good does it do anyone to say that?

    I totally agree, but that wasn't my point.

    My point is, how can a person be dubbed as lazy when he's working hard every day to try to improve? Being unable to improve his defense, despite hard work, doesn't translate to being lazy.
