If you compare the big three's numbers this year with 2001 you will note a serious decline in wins, era, innigs - - everything but loses. Rich Harden was a skinny kid last year - over the winter he was a on a program. At Fanfest he was buffed! Roger Clemens is famous for his workouts - he is pitching in the playoffs a year after he retired!!.
Next year the big three are scheduled to make big money - they should do more than play golf and music this winter. Harden's last pitch was 97mph. Zito said his legs were tired. Success came so easily two of the three got soft - Huddy isn't soft he is just too slight and needs more upper body.
In 2001 when the big three were cheap the team had essentially four 100 rbi guys - this year none and the prospects for budget to replace Dye aren't good with what the three will get next year....they will need to be much better. I don't see Kielty driving in 100 runs.
Billy should get them each a personnel trainer for Christmas.
