The M's have Ichiro in right, Gutierrez in center, and either Griffey or a platoon of Endy Chavez and Wladimir Balentien in left.

He may just be that one run producer they need who would have been the difference between 67-95 and outscored by 140 runs last season and an easy World Series title.

endy chavez is no starter.

he'll be a fan favorite off the bench... and he'll do well off the bench to the point where you'll want him to start, but that's a mistake. he's a pinch hitter and defensive replacement.

nothing more. even a straight platoon is too much for him. trust me on this one... endy gave me some great memories, but he's not even a semi-regular player. he's very good at being on the bench, the M's should keep him there.

I wish he had never left the team in the first place. After playing for Cincy, maybe he does too.

I believe he only signed a one year deal. I think he may be done after this year.

Yeah, that's the feeling I'm getting, too. He's having one more go 'round, back where he started, and then he'll hang 'em up at the end of the year.

By the way, Zoney, are your Twins gonna sign Joe Crede or what? I don't know if I'll be able to watch Joe the Hero go against us 19 times a year in a Twinkies uniform.

I don't know. The talks have been on-going.

Oddly, I thought of you when first saw that the Twins were talking to Crede. It would be fun to see him up against the sock in a Twins uni.

Lets hope he decides to keep playing, because when he hangs it up, I'm going to start to feel really old.

I saw that sarcasm. You're just biased against the west coast.

Oh, be certain Manny's not free. Nor is his agent.

he's the greatest run producer of our lifetimes, and he did it (we presume) clean.

say what you want about the guy... his still being a free agent, with all the stupid contracts that baseball has given out over the years, is baffeling to me.
