A weird question – which player with multi-position eligibility is worth trading for – was asked. The reason (as with a number of our questions) was because the writer who chooses the questions often has a guy in his head he wants to write about and then forms a question around him. He chose Ryan Freel. I chose Nomar because Nomar rocks the party (when not rocking the disabled list). Our question for the coming week is "which rookie pitcher should you add now?" I’m about 175% certain that the dude who poses the questions will pick Chad Billingsley. He has dreams about him. Dirty dreams.
Which pitcher will "hit the wall" soon? The popular answer was Chien-Ming Wang of the Yankees, which I think is hogwash. Pure, unadulterated hogwash. See, Wang doesn’t strike people out, which means he *shouldn’t* be as good as he is. That’s one of those newfangled ways to evaluate baseball players. There’s another way, which I call "watching the game." Wang has – and does – look good. Then again I copped out and said "The Marlins." Guess I was busy that week.
