"He's had pitches to hit, but he's just a tad off. He'll get pitches that he fouls back or pitches that he just misses. Hopefully, as we keep moving here, he'll start to square some of those baseballs up and help us." (Indians.com)
That was Eric Wedge on David Dellucci.. I'm done wasting my breath. Him being on this roster just makes me want to SCREAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM!
"Everybody judges you by numbers," he said. "Our goal is to hit the ball hard. You can't control where it goes or what happens after it leaves the bat. There has been a lot of games where I hit the ball good and had nothing to show for it, and [if] you read the box scores or look at a batting average, you wouldn't be able to tell." (Indians.com)
This sounds like a broken down veteran who has no future. Oh WAIT!
Someone who does have a future is Kelly Shoppach who says that this is best stretch he's ever swung the bat.
"I had a stretch last year where I swung the bat well, but it was over a month and a half," he said. "I wasn't playing every day and no one noticed." (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
Please keep it up Kelly..
Ryan Garko and Jhonny Peralta think the Twins have what it takes to win the division.
"They are built around Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau," said first baseman Ryan Garko. "They're two of the best hitters in the big leagues and I don't think they get a lot of credit. They also have a great bullpen. They win the games they're supposed to win. That makes a big difference."In case you haven't heard, The Boston Herald is reporting Joe Borowski was offered a contract. By who? The Red Sox.. No Joke.
"I think they have a chance to win the division," said shortstop Jhonny Peralta. "They don't have the big power hitters that some teams have. But they can run, they can bunt and their starting pitching is really good." (Plain Dealer)
You saw what David Dellucci said.. Now look at what Ben Francisco has to say.
"Baseball is baseball. You've got a job to do and you've just got to go out there and do it," he said. (Indians.com)
yeah, DO YOUR JOB DELLUCCI! Stop making excuses that you don't have control over where the ball goes.. Of course you do. JERK.
I'm tired.. The game yesterday was exhausting. Just awful.. Just Awful..
