That's it and not a personal animus towards Wise.

Great catch, dude.

Btw: Rick Hahn, next offseason it would be nice to go into camp with at least a semblance if a major league bench.

Most of the hatred was spawned by the fact that he was the opening day starting CF in 2009. As a 4th or 5th outfielder, I don't think most people has a problem with him.

I don't get it either, it's not like Wise was the first player kept as a bench player due to his defensive and baserunning abilities.

Thanks for being the most effective pitcher in that game against the Twins last year.

Also catch

I'll forgive him everything else b/c he made one of the most memorable plays in MLB history, but I'm certainly not sad to see him go.

Tyler Flowers and Jeff Keppinger say hello.

Wise did a decent job as an extra outfielder. It was only when he was asked to play every day that he failed. If used properly, he's a good guy to have around.

An interesting question: what to do with sold out games? It's harder for sports, especially football, to give up seats with 10% the amount of games. Basketball and hockey have more games than football but a lot less capacity.

Truth. Hell, he probably wasn't the worst outfielder on the roster.

IMO, he's better than a couple outfielders on the current 25-man. Maybe that doesn't say a whole lot, but it does defeat the argument that Wise was/is the worst player in MLB.

Incredibly, Corky Miller is still on a big-league roster. I might nominate him as the worst player in MLB.
