Hey, I'm 2000 lbs. of simple. I don't know anything about all the trade speculation and stats going on around here regarding the Mets' Lastings Milledge. But what does the kid look like? Here's a picture. I think he'd look good in green 'n gold.
Also, Bruce Jenkins thinks Barry Zito will be a good fit for the NL but this had me scratching my head:People have questioned Zito's ability to finish games, but they should take into account the A's obsession with pitch counts. How many times did fans scream at the television set, imploring manager Ken Macha to leave him in the game?

I screamed at the TV set, too. But I was imploring Macha to take Zito out of the game.

Listen to me now but hear me later.
It's time to "DUMP YOU UP!"
