What's the Opposite of Garbage?

Maybe this Keith Law guy is allllright. He's got two good articles back to back in November. The 5 year deal for Juan Pierre might be the worst contract in MLB since Russ Ortiz signed with Arizona. LA fans can only hope that the Dodgers similarly pull the plug on him within the next couple years, so the damage Pierre does to their hopes and dreams may be limited. In a way it might even be a worse move than the one that resulted in this. At least the Diamondbacks needed pitching, that they picked the worst possible option was really just stupidity. The Dodgers signing up Juan Pierre is downright malicious. Not only will he unfairly steal at bats from up and coming young players, he contributes essentially nothing offensively. If he reaches base he's as fun as anyone to watch, but the problem has always been his inability to steal first. I ask again, where will Nomar play next year??? Good for Pierre though, the money couldn't have gone to a harder working guy. As for Gary Matthews, he is still the same player the Braves cut in spring training two years ago, trust me. He just happens to be have just come off a fluke batting average year. Matthews will fit in just fine with the Los Angeles "Outmachine" Angels of Anaheim.

i think you ought to write to the worldwide leader and tell them to fire keith law - it's much less fun to read their baseball columns when you agree with them.

and then when they fire him, you can make him a contributor to this blog.

but you forgot that this signing shows that the astros are "committed to winning" and that it will create a "positive atmosphere". clearly all of those things are absolutely true. haha, man that worked out so well for the rangers in 2001.
