Or the McKenry Games! Funny how so many people felt like Morneau was a key target now that he's having a great season as opposed to after his time with the Bucs.

Lots of 20/20 hindsight in regards to him.

I wanted no part of him after his performance for the Buccos as the season wound down. I was excited when the deal happened, disappointed after. Referred to him alternately as Justin Iginla or Jarome Morneau as the season ended and playoffs began.

I know, apples and oranges. But the disappointments were similar.

Familiar refrain.

Not me. I wanted them to try and make a play for both Byrd and Morneau.

As mentioned elsewhere, Byrd keeps Polanco off the field. I have been looking forward to seeing what this dude could do for a while. It's more exciting than another season of Marlon Byrd, and will be much more valuable to the team's future.

I say this knowing full well that Byrd is having a great season with the Phils.

At the beginning of the season I thought Polanco would need an entire year at AAA. So that's why I wanted to keep Byrd around.

Of course I changed my tune on that when he tore up AAA, and I am still patient right now, but I sure hope he gives an indication he can make adjustments and get out of this slump. We need him to do so.

Very young player. Was going to have to adjust to major league pitching eventually. I'm just excited to see some of this talent down on the farm that we've been hearing about.
