Padres - Signed Estes

San Diego Padres - Signed P Shawn Estes to a 1-year contract.

Apparently, Jose Lima is a liar.  Estes/Mirabelli instead of Loretta isn’t much more impress than Lima/Mirabelli, but Estes isn’t quite bad enough that Petco won’t bail him out to a degree.  I don’t think Estes is better than Tim Stauffer, however.

He sure is a liar...

Apparently a lier as well.

Estes wanted a miltiyear year deal from AZ. Glad to see he got one elsewhere.

Personally, I think I'd rather have Ryan Franklin than Shawn Estes but then again, I like younger players, not 50 year old dinosaurs.

I assume this is a joke, considering Estes is all of two weeks older than Franklin.

Carl Everett doesn't believe in Shawn Estes; that says it all.

Okay, I didn't get the hard kick in the balls (Lima),
but the sharp stick in the eye (Estes) hurts almost as bad.

Mordecai, that link does not lead anywhere. Oh, and Estes is not great, but he isn't Lima bad. Of course, I am a bit prejudiced by Estes completely dominating the Dodgers while with the Rockies in '04.

"Mordecai, that link does not lead anywhere. "

It wasnt really supposed to you know...it was just a cheap, not especially funny, joke

Don't you know joking is a sin?

I remember seeing a lot of Estes when he was with the Giants. The only reason he's in baseball at all anymore is he seems to suck for a month or two, then comes up with a performance that makes him look like a Cy Young candidate. As Giants fans, we sit through a bunch of 5 10 4 4 4 3 pitching performances, and just about the time you'd get sick of him, he pop up a 8 2 0 0 2 11 and suddenly, you had faith again.

Estes rhymes with testes.

Estes rhymes with testes.

Actually, no; more like this:

There once was a pitcher named Estes
With a tiny and raisin-like testis
Asked why, he said, "Cuz
The other one was
Encased in a rind of asbestos."

Hey, this is fun.

There once was a hurler named Park
Who became quite an object of snark,
'Cause the only damn way
He could post ERA
Less than six was to pitch in the dark.
   15. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: January 06, 2006 at 08:02 PM (#1809407)
There once was a pitcher named Lima
Who claimed he was part of the team-a
Kevin Towers opined
"Had Jose have signed,"
"We'd be more incompetent than FEMA!"
   16. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: January 06, 2006 at 08:07 PM (#1809412)
There once was a pitcher named Eaton
Whose potential had never been meetin'
They shipped him to Texas
Where Park Factor vex us
And now he'll be gettin' a beatin'
   17. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: January 06, 2006 at 08:11 PM (#1809419)
There once was a pitcher named Young
Who was dealt to the Padres for dung
The GM is new
And knows not what to do
And before long he will be hung
   18. Slinger Francisco Barrios (Dr. Memory) Posted: January 06, 2006 at 09:04 PM (#1809494)
There once was a stalwart named Buehrle
Who went to his bed while still early
He said, "It's not rest
That makes me the best
It's sharing my bed with my girlie!"
   19. DCW3 Posted: January 06, 2006 at 11:08 PM (#1809703)
There once was a GM named Towers
Who lacked sabermetrical powers
He dumped Loretta to free a
Little cash for Castilla
And guys who throw eighty miles per hours.
   20. DCW3 Posted: January 06, 2006 at 11:11 PM (#1809707)
There once was a reliever named Otsuka
Who...nope, not happening.
   21. Boof Bonser Tree Posted: January 06, 2006 at 11:54 PM (#1809780)
There once was a man named Santana
Whose changeup confused any man-a
He lost cy young gold
to a lazy fat toad
The baseball writers I can't stand-a
