Alright, then…go ahead Hendry bring up Atkins…his ERA is a measly 8.38.

Honestly Carrie, why bother with minor league reports for this organization. We don’t know who to believe regarding the talent down there anyway. Fox was brought up…to RUST. Hoffpauir has proved he belongs yet languishes on the bench, he will only get a chance (ironically) due to Hendry’s BRILLIANT acquisition of Bradley who practically came with an “INJURED” tattoo on his forehead but Hendry
paid no attention….again. And now the Sox bring up Beckham to FILL A NEED AT THIRD…sound familiar? At least THAT ORGANIZATION has the presence of mind to get him SIX STINKIN’ GAME IN AT THIRD IN THE MINORS…but Hendry? Oops, Ramirez goes down, let’s NOT get the most prolific hitter in ALL THE MINORS some PRACTICE….AT THIRD!! Nobody I know is claiming he would be the next Brooks Robinson, but C’MON!! (Ronnie!!) even Brenly questioned the STUPID decision of lack of games at third.
Lee is now BRILLIANT for advancing a base on a foul ball (duh), watch Hendry sign him to an extension just for that.
Oh yea, good job replying to all the SOFTBALL comments and questions you get.
