The Verdict on Suppan and the Jon Daniels Lookin’ Like Shia LaBeouf Thing

Happy Birthday, Mike Krukow!

I am a rabid Kruk fan and I care very deeply that people say Kruk and Kuip, not Kuip and Kruk.  That just feels so wrong.  Anyway, I hope he has a lovely birthday and I am so looking forward to listening to him again.

That’s Kruk and Kuip on baseball.  Ennn-joy the ballgame.

Someone asked me my thoughts on the Suppan signing as the “6th starter”.  I’m not 100% sold on it.  I think the ideal 6th starter is a younger person who is looking to make it, not looking for a place to finish up his career.  But since the Giants have four above-average starters locked in for a few years to come (and Zito who is locked in, above average or not) I can see why they would go with Suppan.  A interesting or iffy young pitcher doesn’t have a place in their organization right now, whereas Suppan could play a solid number six/relief role and he isn’t looking for fame or glory.  He’s already had that.  And if it’s a train wreck in spring training then, hey, there’s a way out.  So I think it’s a basically positive move.

Rangers FanFest is this weekend and I so, so want to be in Arlington.  I am living vicariously through my Texan readers.  Tell me all about it.

p.s.  Yesterday, @MLBFanHouse tweeted, “Does Jon Daniels look a little like Shia LeBeouf? I say yes.”

I don’t see it.  At all.  My sister does, but I am totally puzzled.  Come to my support, people.  Is there any resemblance?
