write me letters!
this one's about my free agent commentary:
"call it half luck half muscles. where did he get the muscles? idunno; must be some magic strength potion or something"
Actually I heard Javy Lopez lost a lot of weight / trimmed down between the 2002 and 2003 season. Maybe he increased his bat speed?
"Mark Grudzielanek, ... probably the luckiest player in the majors this year. he'll be overpaid in 2004. it'll be hilarious if it's the cubs."
I go to and watch lots of Cub games. Not scientific, but when I watched all of his hits were ground balls that went through. Every time he came up I wondered aloud why the outfield played so deep when he almost never hits deep fly balls. Has to be the weakest swing I've seen in a while. he's totally off-balance after contact, but it worked in '03. I hope they don't resign him as a starter! He's a fine utility infielder, but the cheap guys aren't that much worse.
Just stumbled onto your blog, love the commentary so far.
Thanks, Rob Rolek
