New Hero

This hairy-chested tubby bastard with the plumber's crack is my new hero.


Disown Jack:
Why in the name of all that is holy and just in this world is Jack Wilson still a Pittsburgh Pirate? I frequent MLB Trade Rumors, so I know that other teams were interested in this slick fielding low impact bat wielding grossly overpaid shortstop, yet he remains a Bucco. WTF?! Here's a list of supposed teams that came calling for Mr. Wilson's services: Los Angeles Dodgers, Detroit Tigers, Minnesota Twins, and Baltimore Orioles. He's set to make a robust $7.25M in '09, so just getting him off of the payroll would be worth the trade alone; getting a prospect in return would be the sprinkles on top of the sundae. I'm not saying he's a horrible player, but he's horrible for the Pirates. If a contender needed a stopgap quick-fix at SS, then Wilson could do the trick. A team that will teeter on 100 losses surely doesn't need him though, as he's not a centerpiece for rebuilding around (which is what the Pirates must do). Wilson is now 31 years old, and his overall career batting line is mediocre at best: .269/.312/.375. Jack was quoted as to saying that the "Pirates need more players" in order to compete. Well, they sure as hell don't need you!

Hi GM-Carson,

I just did a template change and I am in the process of reloading all the widgets on - it is like moving! I did as much as I could last night and the rest should be up today by Sat evening!

Phils interested in lefties Will Ohman and Joe Beimel. Either would be a great addition to the bullpen. Beimel would be a Phucco.
