Has the Pujols hangover worn off yet? Yeah, not for me either. Apparently, not for our FO as well since they've been silent since the big deal. We'll give them a break, though. After all it IS the holidays.
However, because of the slow news
days weeks, I decided to get HH's opinion on a bet I made recently with a friend.
During an overjoyed conversation online with a fellow longtime Halos fan after the Mathis trade, one of us made a joke about how Mathis will turn into the next Napoli in Toronto. Obviously, neither of this think this will happen. However, the question does arise: Will Mathis at least bat over .200 for the first time since 2009?
I asked my friend what he thought about Mathis batting over .200 and he said, "NO WAY." I, on the other hand, think Mathis will make it over the
Mathis-line Mendoza Line. So I put 50 bucks on ole Premium that he would, indeed, bat over .200. My buddy took that bet.
There is no AB limit. And no injury clause. However, Mathis has to be at least on the Blue Jays 40-man roster by the end of the bet. So if he gets traded or the more likely released, I lose.
SO, what's your opinion? I have no real reason for believing in Mathis. Rogers Centre is a better hitters park, right? I also, imagine he won't get as many ABs as he did as a Halo but that could hurt me as much as it could help me. Being out from under Mickey Hatcher? I dunno. Fresh starts can be good for a dude and for once in my life, I thought it would be fun/weird/strange...to actually ROOT for Mathis.
