New Team, New Ace?? Top Ten on Demand

Yesterday was my first day on a new team - West - defending Big Apple Champions.

We spilt a double header against the Pipefitters.

Whatever.

It's a long season there will be other days.

Of note, in game two we fell behind by 6 runs and manager John Sheppard brought in his gold glove shortstop Hector Hernandez to pitch to the last two innings.

Hector represented himself well by allowing only 1 unearned run in his two frames and requested that I write a Top Ten on why he should have started game two.

Soo.....

Top Ten Reasons Hector should have started game two against the Pipefitters.

10. He ain't Joba Chamberlain. He isn't on a pitch count. No need to baby him.
9. If we let him pitch more maybe he will show up more.
Instead of looking to show up just enough to qualify for the playoffs.
8. He throws strikes. Against a disciplined scrappy pipefitters offense that helps.
7. Hector will be the grand Marshall of the Puerto Rican day parade in June and needed a tune up start before the parade. He wants to lead the parade and start on the same day. Hick style
6. Dio Jackson was in the stands and was scouting him.
5. This corny ass blog would never have been written
4. No hay nadie ma
3. He's our best shortstop. It makes total sense to weaken our defense - not!!!!!!!!
2. He had a pulse and we were missing our #1 and #2 starters - Murphy and Myers

and the Number One Hector should have started game two against the pipefitters.

1. He's a legal modified pitcher. Oh my bad, that's not a big apple requirement anymore.

  1. Ricky, you would have laughed last week!
    I was told by UMP that i was coming to the side??!!!
    I fall to the side but i do not throw sidearm like certain pitchers. Another thing, if i do throw side or i break my wrist it isnt intentional or every pitch.

  2. Another bad managing move by John. It's a good thing he knows so many good players or he'd never win anything.

  3. That's an ignorant statement, most teams that win chips have good players. And before West,JA has won many chips.

  5. Ignorant? How about having one of the best defensive SS (Hector) playing in a 4 man OF for a no arm, no range, out of position playing soccer player!?!? Name something he won before West
    And Broadway show league championships don't count! .

  6. For such strong statements guys should put their names next to their comments, the only one besides myself who puts their name next to theirs is Jimmy. It just sounds like sour grapes or jealousy!
