I really don’t even care if he does get caught. I would never miss the guy.

Where have I heard that before?

I know Clint’ s style is very aggressive, but he needs to stop giving Jose the green light; the guy is NOT fast.

If it is true or not I don’t know but that is the feeling I get.

By: Lee Young Mon, 04 Mar 2013 12:52:02 +0000 Thanks to this article, I now blame Jose Tabata for last year’s collapse. If he had been playing like he did in Sept for all of last year and so far this spring, we wouldn’t have had to trade Brad Lincoln. Tabby gives us that leadoff guy who might’ve spurred us onto 3-5 more wins and we could’ve overcome JMac’s collapse.

Heck, we might not have even traded McGeeheeheehee. Our chemistry would’ve been intact and we couldn’t use THAT as an excuse either!!!

It’s all Tabby’s fault.
