OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: sent down
I wonder what they are saying in Detroit ????
Wow, Pena was sent down?? I swear, Billy has a crystal ball...
Yeh, watching a portion of one of their telecasts a couple weeks ago and they said he was close to going down then, if he didn't pick it up.
For all those who like to pound their chest otherwise, a perfect example of when BB does admit to a mistake.
I'm just amazed...this guy was supposed to be the next superstar....what happened ??
Rumor has it, he refused to listen to his coaches. I know there were comments that the A's brass was not happy re his stubborness when it came to coaching. Then again, it could just be he was way overrated and the Rangers pulled a "Beane" on Beane.
too bad about c pena. when he was with us, was a great radio interviewee. went to northeastern in boston as i recall. could not have been more articulate and upbeat the one or two times i heard him. and not just the post game we won radio stuff. sit down with ken or ray type of thing. a fan since then. in fact, the only current player comparable to him in radio-ese, is n swisher. that's why we root especially hard for him.
"Then again, it could just be he was way overrated and the Rangers pulled a "Beane" on Beane."
Ramos is back with us I believe.
this is why all the big trades this winter were a bad thing or a big gamble most monor league guys do not pan out.
And sacto's comments make no sense in regard to Pena. It was all minor league deal when they traded for him. Then they traded him for a veteran (well someone with a couple of years experience) in Lilly.
"anytime we trade a qaulity vet for a minor league phenom we might start forgeting about gettin anything back."
