Anibal Lector

I am always impressed when people younger than me are doing amazing things in the sports world. When Anibal Sanchez threw a no-hitter yesterday, I was more than impressed. Red Sox fans probably had the same throwing up in their mouths feeling that Met fans had after seeing Kazmir in the All-Star game. That is because the Sawx traded Sanchez along with Hanley Ramirez to the Fish for Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell. I'm not sure that anyone thought it would be regretted so soon, and I know that nobody thought that the Marlins would be this much closer to the playoffs than the Red Sox. This was the 4th no-no in the Marlins brief history. I'm still waiting for the Mets to get their first...ever.

Someone in Florida Knows What They're Doing
Hanley Ramirez- .283 BA, .347 OBP, 13 HR, 49 RBI, 10 3B, 44 SB, 104 R, $327,000 salary
Mike Lowell- .286 BA, .340 OBP, 17 HR, 67 RBI, 66 R, $9,000,000 salary

Anibal Sanchez- 7-2, 2.89 ERA, .208 BAA, Salary N/A (but obviously low)
Josh Beckett- 14-10, 5.11 ERA, .246 BAA, $4,325,000 Salary

I saw on Sportscenter that A. Sanchez also makes the league minimum of $327,000. They were doing a comparison of his No hitter to the second most recent from Randy Johnson in '04, and one of the stats they thre up was Sanchez's $327k, vs. Johnsons $16Mil.

So your right.... Makes the fish look even Smarter.
The Red Sox play in the American League, and the Marlins play in the National League. At least for this season, that's like comparing MLB versus AAA. The talent disparity between the two leagues is huge. How many times did Sanchez face a pitcher in that game?

Even still, I think the trade will go down as not the best for the Red Sox, since Ramirez seems to be a perennial All Star in the making for the Marlins.
Ok Mr. Anonymous, the team is called THE MARLINS, and MARLINS are fish. Had this article been about the Dolphins, I would not have said that.

And who is the "FUCKING RETARD"??
I'm almost positive that Dolphins comment was a joke...
