I appreciate Dylan Bundy for what he is

It wasn't anything amazing but for a $4.99 /lb cut it was very serviceable.

Like Bundy!

I brought it back around!

Except that he was a lot more than $4.99/lb and it took about six years to plate him (and he's still not done).

I would be pretty happy with this ERA though.

Well, fair point. He did make it back as a hitter so credit there. 

And then back as a pitcher again!  How many players have done a full-time shift from pitcher to position player and then back to pitcher?  I don't know of any others, off-hand.

Frenchie went hitter/pitcher/hitter.

Wow, I must have missed that or just totally forgot. Pretty wild.

So an episode of Matlock?

I like Matlock, Hallmark mysteries are a bit different, not too much courtroom stuff.

Matlock is just an updated Perry Mason.

For 106-year-olds.

Sorta.  Does he really count, when he may end up with fewer professional innings pitched than Stevie Wilkerson?

He made an effort to become a pitcher.

Judge it however you like.

Unlike Loewen he didn't make it to the majors all three times.

I guess I am 106, now. LOL

Sure beats all the GD reality tv shows on, right and left. :)

Make sure when you're done shaking your cane in the air you don't knock over the Victrola playing the Guy Lombardo music.

If we're giving love to Hallmark and Matlock, can I get a shout out for the Golden Girls? Best sitcom ever. Well, close.

    • Hard to put much stock into what guys like Al Davis says. There is a host of reasons for the team to say in Baltimore. Just because there is a wild arse rumor floating that the team is looking into moving, doesnt make it true, or a probability, either.
    • I want to believe this is true, but I can't get over the fact that Jaime Moyers come along very infrequently, and most often as guys who used to throw harder but have transitioned to pitchability types at the end of their careers. He's not very high on my personal list even though he's clearly an exceptional MiL pitcher. Hopefully I'm wrong.
    • I was worried about the injuries.  Wasn't a risk I was willing to take that high.
    • I was thinking about this the other day. There were quite a few people here that felt like he was the better pick at the time. I really didn't post much then, or now either, but I really liked him as a player.    Bundy was a good selection at the time. He's had a decent career in the grand scheme of things, just not on the level of Rendon.
    • He sounds very much like Ryan Mountcastle, at a high level at least. Profiles as a bat first guy who won't stick at short. With that said, hopefully he doesn't have an obviously deficient arm like Mountcastle. If he turns into a 3B eventually, which is what it sounds like to me, that bat could be a real plus. A ton of development between now and then though. I'd expect them to take it slow with him.
    • Kinga Glyk is the name of the bassist.
    • Am curious your opinion... Mine was generally that hard contact is the hardest skill to teach, and that transferring from contact to power was easier than the opposite. When you have a straight power approach and you're on, it's glorious. However, when you're not in a groove, it gets really ugly. I don't recommend that approach for pretty much anyone. Even supremely talented hitters like Giancarlo Stanton can lose value quickly when they lose the line drive approach to their game. Alternatively, when you're making hard line drive contact regularly, it's easier to let yourself go and crush some balls, IMO. It's when you do too much of that approach that your swing starts to develop real holes. Well, this is all my personal experience, at least.
