DLD 1/03/07 - The Milledge Idiot

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? If Zito is suddenly getting lit up on the fastball, that's one thing, but if it's a matter of 106 pitches, relax. Let him go another inning or two. His arm can take it.

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

In other news, scientists have discovered a new species of shark.

"They've been on their own branch of the evolutionary tree since well before the dinosaurs."

They're attempting to see whether Scott Boras is somehow related.

And ever get that nagging feeling something's not quite right with your horse? If you're in the Bay Area race him to the vet. He may have equine herpes.

Listen to me now but hear me later.

It's time to "DUMP YOU UP!"
