Why can’t guys with kickass last names such as Jakubauskas be kickass ball players more often..

Probably because their names wouldn’t fit on their Hall of Fame busts. Just my opinion

 Agreed. Have been pulling for Seth Schwindenhammer to make it past low A ball for a couple seasons eve since drafted few years back even. Would like to see the name printed on the back on a MLB jersey, if it would even fit.He has to stop striking out at a 50% rate 1st however over 1st 3 professional seasons.. Might have been a stretch taking Seth in the 5th round few years back.

He keeps kicking around for awhile.  He don’t care if he’s any good-he’s still going for the dream.  Every once in awhile, perseverance wins out. He may still get some time somewhere.  Stranger things have happened on a baseball field.

Wow. Actually a terrible pitcher. We should have kept Moyer. I guess we have nothing to lose by looking at him in the minors.

You’re right because when someone says that, they don’t have until July 31st to do so…you have to make a blockbuster trade the day you say it.  You might want to retire from posting here.

 Moyer’s deal was two starts in Triple-A and get called up or released.
