you are just about spot on with your analysis...you forgot to ask a over/under ?
over/under 3 Indians with 20 or more home runs this year?
Yeah Acta just didn't get it. Once in a while a manager has to go off. If done right, it can motivate the team. Manny had some good points, but motivation wasn't one of them.
Also, fans love it when a manager gets thrown out.
PTI - pls return to the regularly scheduled over/under discussion.
I think there will be 3: Swisher, Reynolds and one from the following group: Santana, Cabrera and Stubbs.
- Santana has trouble hitting lefties; kind of gets beat up as a catcher; but did have a very good 2nd half of the season last year;
- Stubbs is treding downward and won't be getting cheap HRs in the banjo ballpark in Cinci anymore; and
- Cabrera...in his first 4 seasons never hit more than 6 HRs in a season, then suddenly shot up to 25 HRs in 2011...dropped back down to 16 last year. Who knows?
Having said that, one of the guys from that group will probably come through and hit 20. I'm guessing Santana.
And last year no one hit 20 HRs, right? So 3 is sure a huge improvement over zero.
over/under: Francona gets ejected 3 times
- I'm saying OVER. And how refreshing will that be after Mr. Passivity, Manny Acta.
OK, the over/under # for this question is 0.5. Over or under the number of guys with the first name "Yan" making the team out of spring training.
