Well this is sad news for me 'cause I'm an Indians fan. For the two of them, well, I guess they'll be moving out to New York now and Robbie will be contending for a World Series ring. Good luck to them. I hope they both have success in 2002.
Yeah I know. It is a sad day for any Indians fan. <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> They got rid of the best player on the team and aren't done yet most likely. Omar Vizquel could be next, Gonzalez will probably be gone soon too (he is sort of without a team right now--very slight chance he'll re-sign). They don't want to spend any money this year (or make smart trades apparently). I heard Robbie on the radio and he doesn't seem all that happy. He liked it here. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">
Anyway, to keep the topic to tennis, I hope this does not disrupt Mary's training and focus for Australia. I'd like to see her get off to a good start in January.
I don't know if Robbie will like it here. (Though the odds of Mary Pierce winning the USOpen just went up quite a bit.) But if he plays 90% of what he did for you guys New York will fall at his feet. I'd pretty much predict him Grand marshall of the Puerto Rican day parade already. Actually IS he Puerto Rican? I know he lived there. But having someone besides Piazza hit everyday is a godsend and a half.
