Reason #854,243 why Theo and Co are better then Hendry

When we have a long, obsessive watch for a player, they come THROUGH more often then not. They do not believe in giving their fans blue balls!

Guys I can't breathe.
During a "Not For Women Only" panel discussion, former Cubs pitcher Mike Bielecki asked several players to invent a baseball catch phrase for Viagra. Theriot's ad campaign: "Viagra -- I always play hard."

LOL at all the callers on the Score the last few years wondering what Theo's plan was. It's working out.

Not that good. I *think* the Dodgers were a smidge ahead of them, but neither was over 95.

This is awesome. I know not everyone shared this belief, and I could be wrong because I am a baseball idiot compared to some of you, but my biggest long term worry for this team was having a team full of low contact guys that would struggle in the playoffs against power pitching. And perhaps what happened in the NLCS was a 4 game SSS blip.

But it seems like Theo saw that and addressed the [expletive] out of it. Long term concern = over.

Now really the only issue is that we might be a little unbalanced and could be less awesome against good lefties. But whatever!
