Anyone remember Matt Harrington?

This is one of the best Wiki reads you can find. I love one of the last few lines to the story (I won't spoil it because the story's pretty crazy). Let's just say this kid really pissed away a lot - in terms of money especially. Could have been set for life.....

A better read is the ESPN article that details exactly what happened to him. I for one second don't believe that it was necessarily greed from Harrington, but rather that Tanzer fellow, advising him not to take ANYTHING because "There's NEVER a chance you won't be signed"...what a load of crap

I think this will turn out to be like McDaniels in 2010, where the owner would really like to keep O'Dowd out of cheapness, but the fan backlash will build up to such an extent that it becomes obvious that it will be a financial black hole if they hang onto them.

Also goes to show that natural talent will never amount to anything without the hard work and dedication of a coach staff to nurture that talent with you. Those years in the independent leagues killed him, I'm sure.

He'll be hot for a while, then go to Hell. The way he works. Unreliable for anything above a forth or fifth spot.

Also, Guthrie sucks. I have stated this from the start.
Never has been anything over a three or four.

Todays post came out guns blazing on the rockies front office. I wonder how long the Mickey mouse club can bury its head in the sand?

Hell yeah they did. I don't usually read the post but wow they've dedicated like 4-5 pages on how bad the Rockies suck, present and past.

O'Dud is probably safe until the draft next month (baseball really has ****ed system). If the fans are still angry then (highly likely) then the Monforts will have to look at making a change.

If I had to pick on to fire it would be him over Tracey.

Yeah it is. Doesn't the NBA still own the Hornets? How can that one NOT be rigged? hahahahaha

Nah, they recently sold it to the Saints owner.

However in recent memory, Wizards' owner dies = #1 pick, LeBron leaves Cavs on national TV - #1 pick, Hornets on verge of being relocated/lose a superstar = #1 pick.

They're also so secretive of this lottery.

The NBA is the only league that I think is legitimately rigged.

It's like the rockies are singlehandedly bringing back the dead ball era.
