OMFreakin'G. Not sure why I'm just now getting to reading this article, but that is some funny stuff. What a bunch of clowns.
I don't mind this actually think its kind of a cool idea. Professional athletes do all kinds of "odd" training in the off season. I don't know where hand to hand combat fits into baseball, but getting your players in tip top shape heading into a season is often a good idea. In fact I have yet to see a thread "I am in the worst shape of my life" heading into spring training.
Cedric 3/24/08It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
Idiots. Incompetent, bumbling idiots.
In other words, they lied. Probably because they thought they could, probably because they never thought Kovacevic would get a hold of the interpreter, let alone another player who also took part in the exercise. But it doesn't end there. Kovacevic has made it clear that after he first wrote about the Navy SEALs bit last month, team employees began approaching him left and right to rip both Stark and Stark's boss, GM Neal Huntington. Which clearly speaks to a larger problem that was further laid bare when team president Frank Coonelly said there would be no changes at the top of the organization this offseason, only to have owner Bob Nutting say just one day later that "[e]very area of the organization should, must and will be reviewed."
After 20 years of losing, the Pirates keep finding new ways to fail.
I was just coming to bump this. Here's to twenty more losing seasons!
Can't believe they'd take this chance with Polanco. Somebody please get rid of Huntington. I know many here have praised him, but I've always thought he was borderline incompetent. The border's gone.
