I don’t hate the guy - I just wish he hadn’t come back.
I wish there were no rumors, I wish there was no corked bat, I wish there was no walkout on the team, I wish there was no lying to Dusty (and me).
Other than Giambi and the Met batboy who’s supposedly a giant witness with a list of bad guys, I really haven’t heard much about performance enhancement and cheating this season.
But that’s gonna come, and it’s gonna be a train wreck.
Obviously, I’m swayed by Sammy’s (lying) past, and by his before and after photos which are not unlike the ones of Barry Bonds: regular head, giant head.
Of course this all needs to be cleaned up.
I just don’t want to watch.
So far, he hasn’t really been under any major public scrutiny.
But 600 homers ought to bring that on.
Congrats Sammy, now please fade away.
Next, I listened to the SCORE 670 last night, and there were 3 guys on, don’t know their names, but they were all like, “Of course Michael Barrett was going to be dumped, EVERYBODY knew that.”
I pretty much pay attention, read the sports.
I was thinking (still am) Jones would go.
But this Barrett thing took me totally by surprise.
