2012-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)what do you think of Scott Van Slyke? Yes he's old but he can't be any worse than Loney or Rivera can he?
(Jason from Quebec)
No, he probably can't be, even though he's 25 and it's Albuquerque. And Rivera just hurt his leg sliding into third, so it's possible that he might miss some time. I'm rooting for Van Slyke, if only because there's a chance he might be as funny as his old man. Andy Van Slyke was hilarious. (Ben Lindbergh)
2008-05-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Corey Hart... The Andy Van Slyke of the Fielder/Braun/Hart trio? Minus the defense and left handedness I guess... I was going more for the underappreciatedness of it.
(strupp from Madison)
Forgive me, I needed a long giggle break. Andy Van Slyke, underappreciated? Would that be on the planet without beatwriters? (Now *there's* a movie that would make people forget "Mars Needs Women.") Anyway, I think it's obvious that Hart's the item that fills your bill. I'd love to see him get a serious shot in center, but I really don't think it's ever going to happen. (Christina Kahrl)
