While we're on mea culpas, and my work server is down....

I wasn't too impressed with the Wandy Rogriguez acquisition at the time. Boy, was I wrong. In the words of Bill Simmons, "As always, I'm an idiot...."

I thought Neil Walker was going to be a miserable failure at the Major League level.

I thought Jeff Clement was going to be a good hitter for us.

From what I am hearing, Inge is a really good clubhouse guy.

I'm one to put a lot of stock in team chemistry and sports psychology, and maybe Inge can help with that. Last year the team choked because they did not have the confidence to fight through the pressure and adversity and still perform.

This year I think I am seeing a team that will be able to keep playing well all year long. Of course our talent level is better, and it's the talent that breeds the confidence.

Regarding Inge...I really like this kind of guy for a bench role. I think he is ideal.

I thought if the Bucs traded Jose Bautista, he was going to suck for about a year and then become the most feared slugger in baseball and hit 50+ home runs in a season. I really wish I would've called the Pirates about that hunch...

I thought Babe Ruth should have stayed a pitcher.

I told Doubleday his baseball game idea would never catch on!


.... I know I know - the Abner Doubleday inventing baseball story is just a myth ....

I insisted that the Bucs were sending a message to the rest of the league when they signed Derek Bell ..... oh wait, that was Lloyd McClendon.

Way back in '54, I wondered what the hell the Pirates were doing stealing that 19 year old OF who hit a whopping .257 as a part time player in the minors at Montreal!
