and all heck breaks loose! Well at least minor heck. Just got back to my room for a brief break and read about the trade. Some thoughts:
*Overall, eh? Doesn't excite me.
*Who goes out? Two major leaguers coming in, one going out. Someone has to go. I haven't read that yet. Is this it for Kearns?
*Morgan for Milledge may be an upgrade in some areas but where did all this potential of Milledge go that two teams have basically dumped him? Is it not there? Is he a head case? Is Morgan an upgrade over Willie Harris? Does Morgan play every day? Is this basically just addition by subtraction? Questions, questions, all I gots are questions. Does anyone have the answers? Of all nights not to be able to watch the pregame show.
(Chico has since noted that the move will be made tomorrow and an outfielder will likely go. Has to be Kearns, doesn't it? Also, Morgan will bat leadoff and play center. So he's better than Willie??)
*The Hanrahan equation here seems like one of those change of scenery things. I'm still convinced Hanrahan has what it takes physically to be a quality reliever. The rest of it is the big question. A huge question. I know nothing at all about this Burnett cat.
I'm going out again soon, will miss tonight's game. Wonder how much will hit the fan while I'm gone.
