Sin City Times 2040.9

Post by bschr682 » Sat Oct 12, 2019 11:22 am

GM: "Welcome everyone. Jenkins don't even think about it. What a wonderful day it is. We just went 5-1 this week including beating that pickle smoocher from Mexico City. I am ecstatic. So pumped in fact that I'm not taking any questions. Instead I have a gift for all of you. Earlier in the week I had a conversation with Matt Rectenwald. I was curious to see how things were going on his end and what he thought about the success of his former team. I already have the go ahead from him so I am going to give you a printed copy of some of the highlights of our conversation. I'll let you use your imagination for what my responses were. Enjoy those quotes and go write your stories. That's all."

1- "Vegas is a legit Landis contender just as I thought they would be."
2- "I don't know who the hell Craig Barber is but that seems to be working out well."
3- "I like the way you have been using the bullpen, very intriguing. It's certainly getting Huber and Balun pitching a lot more which is smart. But when is Javier Garcia going to get involved?"
4- "The opener/follower thing may work for a while, but I don't think it can be sustained for the whole season. Honestly I think it's a horrible waste of Chartrand and Kun . Seriously, if you don't think Kun is a top starter, there's a guy in Tennessee who would love to put him back together with Chin Kim."
5- "See, I WAS right about Mtume! Where was this last year?"
6- "The Hustlers system has never been highly thought of but I always said that there were plenty of guys who weren't huge prospects but would be nice big leaguers. England and Alilea have already proven themselves, now here comes Phil Logan who is off to a really hot start."
7- "I see Logan's success is at the expense of yet another under the radar guy, Jesus Yan. Seems quick to pull the trigger, but I'm sure he'll be back."
8- "I don't know why Rudge keeps struggling, and it's made more of an issue because Mendez isn't hitting like he did last year."
9- "Not sure if Claudio Perez is in the long term plans with you, but he was awesome last year. Not so much this year."
10- "The sun rises and sets every day and Kirshbaum just keeps hitting."
11- "Chien and Chang are both getting killed by the park. 2.9 and 2.5 HR/9, respectively. That can't continue."
12- "Maybe I was wrong about Abe Colbert, Jr. Maybe."
13- "Wait, now I figured out who Craig Barber is. He's holding a spot for the Italian. So when Craig Barber starts playing like Craig Barber, it's Italian Stallion time. Super 2 time should be over."
14- "Looks like you have already given up on Garcia as a lefty bat, and you are giving Altaner a shot. I'm really rooting for Otto though it's sad to see Garcia in AAA."
15- "What the hell happened to Carlos Camacho?"

I'm confused. Does Brett or Recte get the points for this TN?

Great idea for a TN. And if Matt really wants to know, I can clue him in on Craig Barber ...

I’m beginning to think Barber might be for real...

He had a couple of flashes in the minors (one player of the month in AAA), but was terrible in his stint at Huntsville. So, this has been a little surprising. Would be kind of cool if he kept it up!
