Speaking Lashon Harah About Another Jew

It's never good to speak Lashon Harah about another Jew and particularly not on Rosh Chodesh Elul, but Shawn Green really must go.

What is Willie thinking? He may be Jewish, but the dude is a lead-footed, terrible outfielder, no longer has any power and can barely hit. It's time to play Lastings. (The " numbers mumchim" estimate that Lastings will be worth ten more runs over the course of the remainder of the year, equivalent to about one win. That doesn't even touch on the improvement on defense that he would represent. One win may mean the difference between winning the division and going home.

It's time for Green to join Hoffman's.

    Agreed. It is getting ridiculous. Although I have heard a few interviews on Mike & MD that Willie is till going to play him. Who knows? Now if only they had a reliever....

    Why is it that I haven't heard too much bragging recently about all those Jewish Mets? Y'know - like Shawn Green? And Scott Schoeneweis? And David Newhan, when he's not down in New Orleans? And - uhh, on second thought, never mind. Maybe we can get Koufax out of retirement. Or Art Shamsky.

    Maybe because Schoenweis is a devout Christian and because Newhan is a Jew for Jesus.

    Green should not start but remains an okay bench or platoon player.

    Now I'm trying to figure out if that makes me feel better...
