Yes, we know that, but Floyd made Willie look like a dope with that comment.
Yeah, but why should Willie even care. I personally like Floyd, but his story doesn't exactly make sense either. If Willie were even thinking of bunting Floyd would have been the last guy off the bench. IMO it would have been Hernandez because he could beat it out or Glavine because he is probably the best bunter.
I could never figure out why Willie didn't at least platoon him vs lefties. He also saw woeful slumps that needed pine-time. He should've at least reciprocated the respect. Alou is much better IMO.
I agree Alou is a better hitter and they both probably have the same chance of getting hurt, but I think we will miss Floyd's Defense. Not that it was great or pretty, but he gets to a lot of balls by taking good routes. I worry a little bit of having two slow corner OF's. I know Beltran can cover a ton, but he can't cover it all lol. I have a feeling we are going to have to replace Alou/Green late in games for Chavez like we used to have to for Piazza.
Exactly, or just leave Endy there. How bad could that work out? He dosen't get enough respect. Reminds me of the time we had that utility guy and refused to make him a starter(Mora?). He went on to be a beast in Baltimore.
