This thread is essentially a restatement of the old baseball saying, "the good ones come fast." And as players like Frank, Robin, and it appears Beckham, have proven that to be correct. The one thing I object to is the singling out of Treybone Shelby. The kid has done everything the Sox have asked of him. Publicly disparaging him is unkind and uncalled for. I mean, the meaning of this thread could be boiled down to "Shelby unlikely to be hall of famer..." well, duh.
Well said Cal.
Ha Ha Ha!!!!!
