Rotten Grapefruit

Double digit wins for Wells (10), joining Arroyo (10), Clement (11), and Wakefield (13). Somehow, Wells seems like the most 'consistent' of the bunch, probably because he throws strikes.

I continue to worry about mechanical flaws in the delivery of Arroyo and Papelbon contributing to their problems. I certainly hope that the baseball staff is reviewing the tapes/doing self-scouting to try to identify and correct possible problems.

The Sox captured their first series in four, thanks to an offensive outburst and some sharp defense at third (mostly sharp) by Bill Mueller, who has been on something of a hitting tear.

One of the most critical criteria in player evaluation is the willingness to admit you are wrong. As a stock trading afficionado (www.ronsen.blogspot.com) , I recognize that losses/mistakes are inevitable and that "a small loss is a professional loss." Today, GM Theo Epstein attempted to correct that, jettisoning Mike Remlinger in favor of the second coming of Abe Alvarez, who is the poor man's Mark Buehrle, or maybe the middle class' Bruce Chen. Alvarez throws strikes, changes speeds, has a funky delivery, and can't break glass. If he can somehow add a screwball to his repertoire, will we reminisce about Mike Cuellar?

Cuellar was the soft-tossing southpaw who had a remarkable career for the Baltimore Orioles (http://www.baseball-reference.com/c/cuellmi01.shtml) Cuellar won 20 games four times, at least 16 seven times, and had an outstanding career winning percentage of .587. I remember someone saying of Cuellar, "he throws rotten grapefruit up there, and how far can you hit a rotten grapefruit?"

Let's hope that Abe, just a kid at 22, can come up with some rotten fruit of his own to toss up there. I worry about his lack of a fastball, and then I recall guys like Cuellar, Stu Miller, and the latter-day Frank Tanana (52nd in career wins) who got guys out with guile and guts. Oh, yeah, Jamie Moyer is now up to 98th on the career wins list, i.e. in the history of baseball.

nixhyip said...

Hi ##NAME##, while looking for info on hyip scams, I saw your blog ##TITLE##. A lot of people got excited by it. Everyone can get excited about the idea of ending the day with $150 for every $100 they "spend" in a HYIP. In time though, they will have to face up to losing their butts in a scam, fraud, or ponzi scheme because that's the way it is. Where am I wrong? Better to have the money saving hyip scams real information UPFRONT like in the ##LINK##. You don't have to buy the ebook & membership for $47 to avoid losing - or skip play - until you know how the pros who wrote it make their money - and maybe yours too!

Hi ##NAME##, while looking for info on , I saw your blog ##TITLE## and congrats. It's exciting stuff, like the new Sports Arbitrage Software with its five way to make guaranteed winnings. Sports arbitrage, as some may not know, is simply betting on both sides of a sports event - and with this software you should double a same amount bet every 20 days. So, In 12 months a $100 bet wins $1825, and $1,000 wins $18,250. That's a 152% return a month! You don't have to buy our software program for arbitrage unless you think you want the most successful system, and like done in only 15 minutes a day. And, unlike a HYIP offer - YOU CAN'T LOSE! Better check this money making ##LINK## for 2006 and be ready start the new year happy and profitable. Get a special deal for affiliates. And good blogging in 2006!

G'day Ron Sen, MD, what a great blog you have here, been entertained by the read. Just noticed that my intended brief time visiting blogs looking for currency trading tutorial items has run into a couple of hours. Easily done when you get engrossed in what people write about. I should really use currency trading tutorial as a search term but then I might miss places such as Rotten Grapefruit. Besides which working all the time is boring.

With regrards to your post I realize I've got a few things to learn yet. I thought your blog was great because it made me think about my own trading. You've nailed it in your last post ##NAME##. I was searching for topics on home business and I ended up on ##TITLE##. I'm usually more interested in Forex Trading Resources. It is reasonable because it is similar to the way I write and because it seems to make for readable posts. Good on ya!

You've nailed it there ##NAME##. I was searching for topics on top network marketing companies and while searching Blogspot I came across your post on ##TITLE##. I try to keep to Forex Training Resources but that's not always possible. Your blog is really cool because it's interesting in a off-beat kind of way. With respect to your post I realize I've got a few things to learn yet. From any perspective it's reasonable because it is similar to the way I write and because it seems to make for readable posts. Good job!
