Top Ten Tuesdays (a day late, a million or so bucks short): You Are the Weakest Link
Wednesday, June 25, 2008
At the beginning of the season, poor performance can be overlooked. Some dudes can't play in the cold, some need a little time to get rolling, others are still rehabbing nagging injuries. Oftentimes these excuses prove to be spot on and those slow-starters get back into good form and make us forget they barely made it to the game at the start of the season - look at the Giambino, for example - but there are some dudes for whom the slow-start syndrome does not dissipate. The season is half over now (!) and henceforth I think we can now officially take those "slumpers" out of the slow-start category and file them as 2008 failures*.

Top Ten Weakest Links on the Top Ten Weakest Teams

10) Pirates - Freddy Sanchez
9) Dodgers - Andruw Jones
8) Indians - Travis Hafner
7) Royals - Brett Tomko
6) Reds - Bronson Arroyo
5) Giants - Barry Baked Ziti
4) Padres - Khalil Greene
3) Colorado - Troy Tulowitzki
2) Nationals - Wily Mo Pena
1) Mariners - Richie Sexson

* By the way, do you think we need to classify Cano as a 2008 failure at this point? It's a good thing the Yanks aren't one of the ten weakest teams or I would have had to consider him...

    Little early to write off Tulo.

    He's been on the DL for most of the season and just got back a few days ago.

    cano's 8 for his last 18... let's see where this goes before we write him off...

    I agree that Cano is dissapointing right now, but I don't think you can make a final determination about him until the all star break. It sure pisses me off though, he seems more lazy than slumpy to tell you the truth (kind of like Willy Mo Pena)

Granderson "shares the lessons that he learned growing up--the importance of family and choosing the right friends, the power of listening and staying positive, and most important, the value of being yourself."
