"He's a guy who's gotten better. I remember my old general manager Al Campanis telling me that a player doesn't reach his peak until he's somewhere between 32 or 36 [years old] and beyond, and it depends on how his legs are and his desire and if he keeps his weight down and his waistline down. I don't see D-Lee having any problem with that."
--Cubs manager Dusty Baker, on the origins of his veteran fetish (MLB.com)
Yeah DLee is good and all, but come on. Al Campanis vs. actual statistical data? No wonder Dusty wants to play old guys -- they MUST be better because Al Campanis said so!
And now Neifi(!) wants to come back, but only if he's an everyday starter. sigh Maybe its just me, but that strikes terror in my heart...
