Winning ballclubs Chad Dotson 08/10/2005 1 JD Arney: “Winning ballclubs don’t make decisions based on intangibles. Losing ballclubs do all the time. Dan O’Brien looks to me like a loser.” Share this:TweetPocket One Response newguy 08/10/2005 I don’t really get this…Acevedo shows up for camp fat and out of shape, after a season in which he wasn’t very good anyway. He then hangs an ERA of 12 during spring training, gets cut, and somehow its the GM’s fault? And the Rockies, who see the talent in Acevedo that the rest of the league has missed, are 43-70 using whatever criterion for player evaluation that led them to this gem of a reliever.
