Stating the Obvious


Recommended Posts

I once met Billy Beane standing in line at the airport in NY. He was flying Jet Blue! I had a brief conversation with him about baseball, Angels, A's, etc. A very nice, friendly guy. No attitude at all. Even had nice things to say about the Angels. This was in 2008.

So Epstein and sabean are the best gms in baseball?


I wasn't making the argument that they were.  I think a lot of factors should play into that.  Winning a championship should be one of the big factors thought.  It seems pretty ridiculous to bestow that ranking on somebody who hasn't done what the basic goal of every team is.

I say it's more of the pitching coaches fault than Dipoto.  


How is it that every pitcher that comes to the Angels gets worse?


Then when Walden goes to Atlanta, he goes lights out?  And Santana?  And Chatwood?  And even Kazmir becomes servicable?  


And I'm not talking only about retreads.  How is it Maronde, and Kohn can look so good in the minors, then turn into complete pumpkins when they get to the MLB level?  Frieri comes from a different system, and looks unstoppable.  But once in our system for a while, he looks utterly clueless?


When it happens once, sure it's possible.  Twice, even possible.  But after a while, when it happens over and over again, it can't be coincidence.
