Pedro Effing Feliz

Okay, I always felt that the Giants needed a quality third baseman. I was never truly unhappy with Pedro Feliz. He was okay, but I'd rather have somebody like George Brett, Mike Schmidt or A-Rod. But, wouldn't you know it, the split second the Giants delete what would have been the best hitter in their lineup, he goes out and gets the World Series winning base hit with another team. Shades of Orlando Cepeda winning the MVP and World Series the year following his trade? Well, it brings up the idea. This year's post season was so full of ex A's and Giants it was not even funny.

  1. That's the way ti goes buddy for also ran's like the Giants and Reds.

    My younger kids wondered if all the teams were made up of former Red's players. :)

    Why do they lose 15 games when they pitch for us....and WIN 16 when the pitch for the Cardinals? Or the Cubs?

    Well we actually got even a bit........we sent away Dunn and Griffey......the Diamondbacks and White Sox got to feel the "love" a bit....

    I have never figured out the "why" of guys like Feliz. Is it the change of clubs, luck, attitude?

    Look at Manny at LA. Amazing......

    About 14 weeks to Spring Training :)
