Harness, being an ex-musician, I appreciate the gift that these composers gave to us. It's a lot different playing Hungarian Rhapsody #2, for example, than some of the simplistic 'compositions' done more »

Chopin, Franz Liszt, and Mozart.

I watch every game. The people who think Holt is a defensive liability are either in denial, or have blinders on so tight that nothing is seen beyond the holy, always perfect and infallible stat sheet more »

Well, maybe Buch will come around.
Now, is that not being totally optimistic? :)
Ben won't let us down. I just hope it's sooner than later.

Please, no gender or race cards. I think the whole country is over-dosed(since you're a nurse and I'm a pharmacist) by it.
I get enough of it at home. My wife calls me her b i tch all the time. :)

I think they should bench Napoli for a bit, put HanRam at 1st(don't forget that he's a former infielder), and put Holt or Nava, or whoever in left.

Saying that HanRam is looking like Manny in LF is being over complimentary.

Posted 04/19/2015 02:26:23 EDT
Don't you guys feel that HanRam would be the guy better suited for 1st base? He fits the description of 1st basemen with power, and not much speed. Besides, he's played the infield before and is acc more »
