[QUOTE]I was not a fan of letting VMart go, though with Salty playing a lot better it is seeming like less of a disastrous move than it felt like at the time. You never know where the season will lead, we go into it, I'm thinking that the loss of VMart will really hurt, when in fact when we think of offense, JD Drew falling off whatever cliff he has been teetering on for years has hurt us more. Having said that, what is the statute of limitations for whining like a baby about not having VMart on our team?
I did my share of it earlier in the season, but aren't we close to saying, "This is our team, let's move on." Can I suggest the end of June for the last belly aching thread about the loss of VMart?

BTS ... bravo for a remarkable idea. This would make life sooo much more pleasant in the course of time.
I enjoyed watching Victor hit. W/o any stats to back it up, he seemed to be clutch as well as just plain good.
But the direction the FO intended to take, IOW getting that guy from San Diego, made having Victor as a part time 1bman unneeded....
Victor was a far better at the plate if he wasn't BEHIND the plate, too.
And Adrian at first, Big Papi at DH ... Victor was needed only behind the plate, to be honest
