    I've got five bucks that says Castilla is going to be awful this year...
    I'll take that bet provided you define "awful". Vinnie was actually a better player this time through town than he was last time. I'm not going to go looking for splits, but IIRC, 22 of his 35 HR were on the road this year, and he did drive in 131. Also had a solid year in the field and still has a very strong arm. They could have done much worse for $3 million per.
    He hit a lot of home runs on the road last year, but that was about it. His OBP away from Coors was .281, which was worse than Marquis and just barely better than Cody McKAAAy. Plus, he's 37.

    I don't know how whatever stadium they're going to be in will play, but he'll most likely suck.

    If you can make up some parameters, we'll make it a friendly wager... [/b]

    OK, how about this; he has to hit at least .250 with an OBP of over .300. A minimum of 15 HR and 75 RBI. If he fails on more than one of those standards, we'll call if awful. Bet?

    As of today:

    .253 average
    .319 OBP
    12 HR
    66 RBI

    Actually pretty close. He needs to keep that average up and get either three HRs or nine RBI in the next week, otherwise, I'm swimming in cash.

    Which leads me to...

      Well, I owe you. You have to take something; money for a couple beers, Northwestern sig, something.

      Vinnie did get ripped by that extra 15 feet, though.

            If I'm not mistaken, I think I also was in on the Castilla wager with you.
            I'm always right.

                      Money? No. I don't believe in it.

                      Beer? My body is a temple, sir. Pass.

                      Sig? Got those turned off.

                      Actually, what I'd like you to do is start a thread advocating, sincerely, mind you, that Skip Schumaker be the starting right fielder next year for the Cardinals, and defending your position when folks say you're nuts.

                      Then you will be released from your obligation.

                        I need Vinnie to hit 3 home runs tonight. So far I owe lazy beer, and kaiser's asking the impossible.
