Ya know I really don't want to sit around just trying to bust people's balls, but Jiminy Crickets I just don't understand the constant overreactions and resulting totally ridiculous comments.
I'm not a fortune teller and I don't know how the season will end, but I've heard that the team took a dagger to the heart about 40 times over the past two seasons because of single game losses. The notion that cutting 3 pitchers with a track record of recent success that we gave up decent prospects to get as the only solution to a temporary problem is beyond crazy.
The notion that a highly regarded former GM of the year type guy being a total hack that has never done anything right is just nuts.
"Alex Anthopoulos (born May 25, 1977) is a CANADIAN professional baseball executive, currently working as the general manager and executive vice president of the Atlanta Braves."
and you can't figure out why some people might not like the guy??

2 of the guys have career Era of over 4.5 and the other is passed his good years on a bad contract. All these guys are average at best... Saying these guys are good would be equal to giving Folty a 5/100 deal after last season. Just because he had 1 good season.

AA has done an excellent job of filling out the roster with veteran baseball player guys. Guys like Culberson, Joyce, and Hamilton can all play important roles on a winning team. The importance of players like them is often overlooked, especially by fans.

Without a doubt, the world's most knowledgeable baseball fan........and one of the most modest as well.
