ARen't Viagra pills shaped like a diamond? Now there's a good marketing idea if I ever heard of one. Viagra Park. Colour the infield purple.

That team is spiraling downwards... awful farm system, and their chance at a stud talent like Verlander, Drew, Butler, etc. was wasted on Bush. Oh and Barfield should be included in that age/lineup

I feel for Pads fans...

Josh Barfield is the starting 2b and is only 23 so that helps it a bit.

Yeah, my Rangers were the idiots who gave Park that contract. Everyone thinks the Arod contract was bad, or hurt the Rangers, but that wasn't it. It was bad contracts like $15 million a year for Park, and several other deals like it that killed them.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I remember a BP article that found that teams should give huge contracts to superstar players and avoid contracts to players like Park...
