I am both joking and being serious.

Double entendre?  His head will explode!

Yes and No.  Yes, because I believe he is a solid baseball man.... AND...... a little bit of No, because he might be a little too old ( I know I'm one of the older posters on the forum,myself, but still) to be managing a Major League Baseball team.........just saying..... :tomatoes:

Excellent post.  Give props where props is due people.

My main concern right now is Jerry Hairston's broken wrist. If Morse is moved back to LF and Stairs starts at 1B, that will be a problem for me.

If Morse goes back to left field they better call-up Marerro over starting Stairs at first.

                 Why would they even think of putting Stairs at 1B. That's crazy. Especially when you have Cora or  Bixler you could use.   :popcorn:

Listening to Davey for 5 minute shows you how he just plain outclasses Riggleman. Although his comment about having 8 switch hitters made me :doh:.

If that wouldn't get labeled a move of cheapness, nothing would. Don't see how it can be considered. But they've done some crazy things before.

Danny do you think you should be hitting higher in the batting order?  How is your range at SS compared to Desmond?

Davey is a great guy, a real baseball whiz. We had a tough series but he is certainly not at fault. It happens, just have to flush it and move on.

See, that's why I like baseball. It's like life, if you have a rough day you get a clean start the next.

Anyway, welcome, hope we're not too mean, and hello from a fan in London, England. Don't let us distract you from work!!

(Although I think most of us post at work. :D )

Danny, are we keeping Matt Stares around for an AARP discount?

If this is really Danny - keep kicking azz d00d.  You've got a ton of fans on here, including me!

Ask him questions only the real Danny could answer:

Are you Danny or FP?

 Chief Or Global Moderators: IS this the real Danny Espinosa posting, or another poster using Danny's name?  You see the sign in - Fact or Fiction? We want to know.      :popcorn:

No harm in being polite until we know for sure, but I wouldn't bombard him with questions expecting legitimates answers, either.

Then we can treat him like all the other members of WNFF.   Well, maybe not.  :)

             Well four of the regular forum posters accepted it as the real deal - so let's straighten this out before anyone looks naive or foolish. Verify who the poster is -real deal or fake-and if fake-delete the post . Simple solution. Thank you Chief or Global Moderators for your assistance in this matter.  :thumbs:

It's just a name that he or she assumed for this forum, a "userid" so to speak. It doesn't mean that he is pretending to be Espinosa.   Did we verify that you are really CatsEye?

                Do you think they were playing - then why would PANatsfan suggest they ask him questions that only Danny would know? Doesn't make sense. Not going to debate this with you - Either let the Chief verifiy the poster, or delete the Danny Espinosa fake post. Simple solution to those who question what is going on, like myself.
