I need more cowbell…I mean Bynum

July 05, 2007 |

Here is what I do not understand and please someone…anyone explain it to me. WHY ARE WE NOT SEEING FREDDIE BYNUM MORE?

I know this city has a love affair with Brandon Fahey, but he is a career .231 hitter in the majors, with a .302 OBP and was hitting around .212 in AAA before the call up. Bynum is now hitting .262 this year and his OBP is a touch higher….plus he brings that excitement factor with his speed. So why can’t we see more of him…he may turn out to be a diamond in the rough. Fahey is a utility guy at best, if you like utility guys that will hit .200.

So in a time that Mora is hurting and Tejada is out…why not take a look at BYNUM…what can it hurt? He has not been terrible in the field…he has done OK at the plate…262 would be better then most of the starters right now….so can I get more Bynum, please!

Other thoughts:

  • I love Wimbleton…I guess for me its like the Masters…I do not watch a ton of tennis or golf…or for that matter follow them, but I watch those events.
  • How great would it be if BONDS goes on a run this week and either ties or sets the HR record before the All-Star game…what would MLB do then….go Barry!
  • I am tired of the continued coverage of the Benoit story….it was a terrible tragedy…let it be what it is…
  • I am not a hockey fan, but I have new respect for Jeremy Roenick. He retired today after a 18 year career…he could have come back to get 5 more goals to reach 500, but he said it was time. I respect that!
  • 2014 Winter Olympics will be in Russia…way to go Russia…
  • USA USA USA…come on chant in with me…USA USA USA…66 dogs is 66 dogs…god bless America!


FANTASY FOOTBALL TIP OF THE DAY:

Never take a Kicker until the last or next to last round…NEVER…every year there or 2 to 3 kickers who come out of nowhere to be in the top 6 or so in points….why waste a pick any earlier….I made this mistake once…ONCE!
