    Today's Edumacation From Tracy Jones

    Maybe I should have went to school instead of being "sick".

    1. Lineups don't matter.
    2. Moving Griffey out of CF doesn't help the defense "because he gets great jumps."
    3. Livingston has better stuff then Arroyo.
    4. Griffey should bat wherever he wants in the lineup.

    I guess it could be called pandering the least common denominator.

    Ya, know I played with Pete Rose and Alan Trammell.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I heard this and wondered if Tracy represented the U.S. in the Olympics--Special Olympics?

    In all fairness he's played the game. He sees things you cannot even imagine, and understands concepts that fan's minds cannot understand. On top of that he's highly successful outside of baseball, yet still allows the commoners the chance to talk with him.

    Huh?

    Is this a joke?

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    Hi Tracy. Welcome to Redszone.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I'm glad to hear Mr. Jones is successful outside of baseball. God knows he wasn't when he was in baseball.

    fwiw, My guess is that the last phrase gives this post away. It's sarcasm.

    Tracy annoys me as much as anyone else, but give credit where credit is due. Tracy was a pretty damn solid ballplayer from 1986-1988.

    Insult his intellect/knowledge all you want, but don't disrespect his accomplishments on the field. 99.9% of the folks who post on Redszone would love to have had his MLB career.

    Good lord, if I didn't hear him say that enough on the radio, now I have to hear it here as well?
