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...
I'm still wondering what happened to Rick Sweet. The guy did a great job with Louisville and then they moved him into some roving catching instructor or some such thing. Sweet's final 6 seasons with the Bats...all winning records. I, for one, was quite disappointed with the change to Bell.
99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
Bailey CYA winner
Hamilton ROY & GG
They obviously had some plan for him. The opportunity arose with the Cubs and Bell took it.
