    My Thoughts Today From Section 519

    Jeff Keppinger is a very solid infielder. He should get the bulk of the time at first base after A-Go is healthy and Votto (time to go to Japan) goes to AAA.

    Brandon Phillips may become better than Joe Morgan.

    Griffey's HR was vintage Griffey -- a laser beam with a little bit of a hook at the end.

    Dusty Baker knows how to manage a bullpen.

    Corey Patterson could be an all-star this year.

    Edinson Volquez throws gas, however he will have his struggles this year at times with command.

    You honestly think Votto should go to Japan? Seriously?

    Votto's not a great fielding first baseman. Then again, neither is the Mad Hatteberg.

    When I think of players who will have had better careers than Joe Morgan's, I think of Alex Rodriguez, Vladimir Guerrero, Albert Pujols, Frank Thomas, Barry Bonds, Gary Sheffield, Ken Griffey, Jr., and maybe some others like Jim Thome, Mark Teixeira, David Wright, Joe Mauer, Hanley Ramirez, Ryan Braun, Brian McCann, and Grady Sizemore. However, when it's all said and done, I'd be absolutely shocked if Brandon Phillips were anywhere near the level of Joe Morgan.

    I honestly wouldn't. His season last year was better than any one season Morgan ever had.

    Joe Morgan's 1976 MVP season:

    .320/.444/.576/1.020 with 27 HR, 30 2B, 111 RBI, 60 SB and 187 OPS+. I highly doubt Phillips ever sniffs a season like that.

    Every one of Morgan's six seasons from 1972 to 1977 was better than Phillips' 2007.

    Morgan OPSed 1020 in 76, was league MVP and with a 444 OBP. I believe it was James that had it, when adjusted for era/park effects was one of the top 10 offensive season in the history of baseball

    Okay, I was kidding. Or at the very least, I was quite wrong.

    sava, your inexperience is showing...I love BP, but Joe Morgan was one of the best I have ever seen. See the stats above- and pay close attention to the OBP...

    arguably. Look at Morgan's insane OBP/BA and then tell me that Brandon was superior last year.
