Memorial Day War Cry

iwo jima.jpgPitchers should hit.

Old defensive liability power hitters who strikeout 150+ times a year and can’t hang in the National League should retire.

And yes, perhaps players should go back to wool uniforms (‘cuz when you’re itchy, you play with an edge).

Verily!  The Gospel according to Jeff hath been spoken.

With that, I virtually extend my hand through the interwebs and take that of my calloused and oft misguided colleague, Mr. Krause.  Indeed, I accept his dubious (and ultimately self-deprecating) proposal knowing full well that victory is in my near future.

And, since we’ve opened up the Gospel, let it also be known that:

The closer is the most overrated role in baseball.

And Albert Pujols is the only man who could make me gay.

Wait, did I just say that?

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.




Jeff – that was more info then I needed to know about Albert Pujols.


LOL.. I second what Julia said..
I hope you [and no1 else on in the US of A] has to ever wear a Detroit jersey =) [No offense Al ;)]

Jeff, do you follow Albert on Twitter? If so, I think you should tell him how you feel about him – like you did with Zito. LOL!

I can’t wait. The squeeze play is the most exciting play in all of sports. That’s what I miss most about the NL and Tony LaRussa. Wedge hates the squeeze play. Wedge also apparently hates common sense so…

I totally agree – why shouldn’t pitchers hit? Hamels once referred to hitting as “not really my job” and I wanted to reach through the TV and strangle him!


Jeff- I have to agree with you that pitchers should hit. However, with that in mind, I’m pretty sure that makes the DH the most overrated, and probably overpaid, role in baseball.

Pitchers should hit. That is pure baseball, look at effin Wainwright last night! Put a glove on the DH and get him in the field somewhere, baseball players are not just hitters or pitchers. Pure baseball talent is doing it all.
