The Guy's Got Rockies in His Head

The second most ridiculous thing I've read in awhile (non-Bush-related division):

[The Rockies] have looked at the free- agent market, but mainly in search of bargains with upside potential, such as center fielder Darin Erstad, who, after battling injuries, could be the Frank Thomas of this offseason.
(Tracy Ringolsby, Rocky Mountain News)

Erstad, lifetime:
.286/.341/.416, 114 homers, 625 RBI, 818 runs, EQA .270 (for you Baseball Prosepectus geeks out there)

Thomas lifetime:
.305/.424/.566, 487 homers, 1579 RBI, 1404 runs, EQA .342

And the first most ridiculous thing I've read in awhile (non-Bush-related division):


Tracy Ringolsby is the 2005 recipient of the J.G. Taylor Spink Award and was inducted into the writers wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., on July 30.

Should I know this Ringolsby person? Cause I don't.

Oh, and the Erstad comment is utterly stupid. Though he might put up superficially good numbers (like a .305, with 22 HRs and 43 2Bs type of line) in Coors, allowing the sportwriters to wax orgasmic about his toughness, etc.

D'oh!

I just figured out who Ringolsby is.
