Art Thiel

I'm not sure how someone as talented as Mr. Thiel, who has written some great columns over the years, can even come up with this:

"The acquisition of 29-year-old lefty reliever John Parrish from Baltimore on Thursday is an acknowledgement by Bavasi that too much is being asked of Putz and the too-young crew of set-up relievers."

I won't even get into the ridiculous Jones quote.

Mr. Thiel: I simply ask the next time the M's make a bonehead move like acquire Parrish you don't mail in your column like you did today.

This article is something I would expect from Jim Moore, not Art Thiel.
