Talk Zone / Belisle

MLB Transactions page shows that the Rockies called up Belisle, apparently in conjunction with Embree's broken leg and trip to the DL:

Chris Coste?  Can he ride...ride like the wind.  Ride like the wind?

Maybe he got caught between the moon and New York City.

Is he a rancher?

I think that only works for Panamanian ranchers.  And New Englanders who hunt.

Clark, Tucker, Wood, and probably Belt are gone, right?

Yep, and 3B Torres.

There are some really intriguing freshman (if they don't sign) coming down the pipe in '09-'10, especially OFs Williams and Walla and LHP/1B Cain.

I was on-hand to see Duran win the HR Derby at the Texas League All-Star Game in Corpus in '07.  For a relatively small guy, he's got a lot of pop.  Plate discipline and pitch recognition apparently proved to be problems, however, during his stints in the Show and in the PCL.

A nice pickup, nonetheless, IMO.

WFW, and you and i both know what is the basis for your attitude.

This ad hominem crap is just weak.  And your trademark "WFW" bounces in the dirt when you use it to avoid addressing the issue at hand.  Either argue the point or don't.

After you get a chance to see Oklahoma at the Dell Diamond this season, let us know what you think about, e.g., Redhawk starters Neftali Feliz and Derek Holland.

bitterness does not become you. time to move on.

i'll give up my season ticket when that happens.

My comment wasn't fueled by anything approaching "bitterness," nor do I feel any "bitterness" towards anyone in Round Rock.  That organization is still one of the classiest and best run in all of minor league baseball.  Unfortunately, however, Reid & Co. don't have any control over the player-personnel who fill their uniforms.

If you can't concede the inarguable difference in talent levels between, say, the Oklahoma and RR rosters or the Frisco and CC rosters, then we just can't have an intelligent discussion on this subject.  The results on the diamonds will speak for themselves.

It is wishful thinking. Ryan is the president of the Rangers. Austin will be watching Rangers up-and-comers soon.

Well, that'll make Round Rock a more enjoyable team to watch.

Without any of the resulting home runs.

So, he's the Amarillo version of Dunn.

Steady winds, but much less rain.

So if you keep showing up year after year by the millions for a shitty team with no pitching, you win an award?  Stay classy, DFW.

You could sweeten a pitcher of iced tea with that irony right there.

Which comes in handy when they get stuck in an elevator.

The fact that they are milkmen?  Or the fact that they can yell?

I thought that Bruce Wayne was performed and written fabulously, but was generally bored by Batman in this movie (comparatively speaking, the rest of the movie was absolutely riveting and the Batman bits were just good).

I know I'm probably supposed to appreciate each character independently of the other, but Bale's turn as Patrick Bateman in "American Psycho" enhances his performance as Bruce Wayne, IMO.  I kept waiting for Batman to get angry and kill someone for having a better business card than he.

I wouldn't have wished another knee injury on Morgan, but wouldn't it have been great if Parker had caught him square in the larynx and done irreparable damage?  Or, perhaps a catastrophic tongue injury?

Maybe I'm crazy, but D.D. Lewis was no slouch out there. I would not even begin to lump him in with Killebrew.

I'm not saying that Lewis was bad, but watch some game film of the 2001 Big 12 title game for a primer on how not to play "Mike" LB.  CU's very good OL exposed his fundamental shortcomings (e.g., taking false steps, playing with his shoulders perpendicular to the LoS, over-pursuing and not playing inside-out) all day long, and Chris Brown ran wild, accordingly.

As Longhorn fans, we tend to over-remember Simms' mistakes and the roughing-the-punter penalty on Geiggar, but under-remember how poorly our defense played against the run and how Barnett all but let us back into the game with that moronic fake punt call that Rod Babers returned for a pick-six.

As for Lewis' pro career, it's noteworthy to me that he has made a career in the League as an outside LB, which plays to his strengths (his natural athletic ability) rather than his weaknesses (his fundamentals).

If the team is legitimately going to pursue the "pitching & defense" strategy, then why would Lee be untouchable?

changed your tune, eh? now it is the kids who do not want the tradition. yesterday you were asserting that Your Hero was maintaining the tradition. you're just one more sycophant at the feet of the best PR guy since Clinton.

I didn't change dick.  Unless you're suggesting that Mack force a Rod Muckelroy or a Sergio Kindle to wear #60, then how can it possibly be Mack's fault that only a couple of our recent LBs have worn #60?

Furthermore, as a UT football fan, I'm sure you've noticed that our LB play hasn't exactly been stellar during the Mack Brown era.  In fact, one could very reasonably argue that our LBs have been the defense's weak link over the course of the past several seasons.  Did you really want to see Mack putting, e.g., D.D. Lewis, Aaron Harris, or Robert Killebrew in #60?

IMO, Renfro and Johnson wore #60 because they earned it.  Frankly, no one other than those two has earned that right in the last decade.  I'd love to see a Muckelroy or Norton or Robinson earn that right in the near future.
