Pie released by Indians

 

The Indians announced Wednesday that they released Felix Pie.

 

Analysis: Pie was once a burgeoning prospect, but he's been a disappointing MLB player. He's at the point of his career where he is just organizational depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.

Impacts: Pie batted .303 (10-for-33) with one double, one triple and four RBI this spring, but it wasn't enough to snag a bench spot. The former top prospect will hope to latch on elsewhere.

The Indians must be loaded. How can they possibly release a .300 plus hitter with speed and extra base power?

The Indians hate Latinos, too.

No...they dislike guys that can't play. Having said that.....guessing Jim's bro will scoop him up right back into the fold. :rolleyes:

Cracks me up when teams take on our former players and release them even before a year has passed while the O's continually beat a dead horse with players. How many times did Cabrerra turn the corner. He turned the corner so many times he ended up where he started.

Took the Indians what, 6 weeks to reach the same conclusion that it took the Orioles 3 years... that Felix Pie, despite the occasional flash of enticing athleticism, is one of the least baseball savvy players to reach the majors in decades. ;)

The Indians 25 man roster says otherwise. There are seven Latinos on the squad including Lopez, Jiminez, Gomez, Perez, Asencio, Santana and Cabrera.

And Native Americans.

 

Latinos play baseball and Native Americans run casinos. It's a cultural thing.

WOW! One whole more Latino than the Latino-hating Orioles:

Ayala, Strop, Paulino, Andino, Betemit, Chavez

Pie didn't fit in with the Tribes goal of winning games.

 

I'm gonna miss that guy! :eek:

He was certainly an entertaining fellow. That time in Boston that he threw the ball backwards was one of my favorite moments.

That incident could help Pie if the Sox sign him to try & turn him into a closer.

That and the rundown between home and first!

 

I worry this team won't even be funny-bad.

Yeah last season was hilarious. There was a stretch of a good 10 games in a row where Pie was constantly having me on the floor laughing so hard.

 

And now we probably won't get to witness Gregg blowing a 4 run lead in the 9th by walking 6 straight batters either. Hopefully if things get really bad this year they can bring Pie back for another audition.

The Indians are already missing Pie. The third rate outfielders they retained over Pie went a combined 3 for 14 in yesterday's loss to the Blue Jays.

I would like to see the Orioles find their way back to Felix. He was an exciting player with a ton of enthusiasm.

When Pie tried to take off from 1st to 3rd on a ball that got a few feet away from the 1st baseman and got thrown out…I remember watching the post game and they asked Trembley about it and he responded with “I think Felix though he was invisible or something”….:)
