Reason #14234 why Joe Morgan sucks
Take a look at this exchange on Joe Morgan's espn.com chat:
Aaron (cleveland): Last night, an intentional walk to Bonds totally backfired. Do you think all this talk about these intentional walks is overblown and that more often than not it's a losing thing to do?
Joe Morgan: In most cases, it seems to have an effect but in Bonds' case I don't think it's overblown. I don't like to see it but its very difficult to pitch to a guy like Bonds when the guys behind him are not hitting HRs. I read an article where somebody said they are helping the Giants by walking Bonds but I don't buy it. We used to say, if you are afraid, bring a Doberman with you. They have been walking Bonds all year and the Giants are still below .500 so it must have worked."
I'll print that again for you to read:
They have been walking Bonds all year and the Giants are still below .500 so it must have worked.
So, the Giants are below .500 because opposing teams are walking Bonds? WHAT?!?! It couldn't POSSIBLY be because every other hitter (except maybe Feliz) sucks moose balls? And the have Bret Tomko in their starting rotation? And Kirk Reuter, too? It couldn't be because Neifi Perez has 154 at bats this season already and has an OPS of .528? Or Alfonzo, Tucker and Snow all stink? Joe Morgan, do you think those things could possibly be why the Giants are below .500? Come on Joe, why can't you THINK before you start thinking. Maybe then you'll decide not to say something as idiotic as you always do.
