When the 7th 8th & 9th hitters are resembling TY COBB & PETE ROSE at the plate something smells. JOE MADDON, the RAY’S skipper is a crafty old Fox straight out of old school baseball. I wouldn’t put anything past Joe. He know’s what stealing signs is all about and exactly how to do it.
Here’s how a few former Tigers are doing with their new clubs. One of our favorites, OMAR INFANTE is on K.C.’s D’L', RYAN RABURN with Cleveland is smashing that ball at .205, CARLOS PENA with TEXAS is at .128 (ouch) JOHN PERALTA with the Cards was on the bench yesterday, CURTIS GRANDERSON, a NY Met is stinging at .233 and MATT JOYCE with the RAYS is swinging the stick at .271.
Our own all star, JULIO DANIEL MARTINEZ just keeps hitting taters whether the Tigers win or lose. Yesterday he hit his 12th and on Saturday he hit number eleven. Speaking of this amazing rookie I’m still in awe. In today’s MLB market things like this just don’t happen any longer. Are you telling me that the whole lot of Houston’s scouts & talent eagles all missed out on a 26 year old FIVE STAR PROSPECT playing all Spring right there under there very own noses????And he belonged to them! AND THEY GAVE HIM HIS OUTRIGHT RELEASE. Something doesn’t add up. Let me know your opinions….Meanwhile certain Houston employees must be squirming. At least they should be after pulling one of MLB’s all time GAFFES!
