I love baseball. All aspects of the game, coaching, sabermetrics, watching. In the last 5 years the Stros have gone from the ideal organization into the bottom 3. I blame Drayton for letting go of the great GM and letting Fat Purp take over. Since the exclusion of the fat one I now blame Drayton. His inability to realize this team has no chance for next year(the last 2 years) will devastate this team for the future.
My PROBLEM: I think I know more about this kind of stuff than anybody. I don't know how I can change that. Maybe if I was wrong more than 20% of the time. So it frustrates me to no end when I see something I know will not be good. I don't know what to think about that except that my resources are being wasted following the Stros.
My projections suck for the Stros because I always see the best. But projecting outside players I have always been good at and I think this Matsui signing will be a real bad one. I was real upset when they traded for JJ and see how that turned out.
I don't know what to say else except that I don't like what Wade has done and his player evaluation is not as good as mine. Personally I don't think any of these GM's do any time looking at players. They hear names and respond so they can save their job for one more year,
