Southern Ontario neighbours
try to outdo one another
with a sequence of who's-on-first events
Steve Milton The Hamilton Spectator
(Sep 10, 2008)
I think, if there hadn't been some friction between
Denny Creehan, and his all star MLB, Zeke Moreno
no trade would even have been contemplated.
That's the part that hurts about this whole thing.
"I can speculate all I want," Moreno
told the Spec yesterday.
"I don't want to be quick to judge,
but [i]certain people
weren't fighting for me in Hamilton[/i].
You have to go where you're wanted
and Winnipeg wanted me.
"Bob just told me it was a business decision.
They were struggling up front, and felt
they could do with the backups (at MLB).
"With the new system this year,
I know the transition was slow
under (Denny) Creehan's new system,
but I think I was OK.
I don't know if they weren't happy with my production,
but think I was OK, my statistics speak for themselves."
[Cornelius] Anthony, who will
immediately replace Moreno on the field
but will take some time to take
his place in the hearts of fans,
played under D.C.Denny Creehan in Calgary.
He was a MLB at Texas A&M but in
his three years with the Stampeders,
he was a WILL linebacker, filling in occasionally
when middle linebacker Brian Clark was hurt.
"The middle is my natural position,"
Anthony said yesterday,...
"I think I have leadership skills,
which I'll show more now.
I do it by example. I'm not Zeke,
that's for sure, but I will be myself.
"Zeke was the face of this defence."
And so does everyone else in a town
where he had become hugely popular.
Obie was backing up his D.C. vs a player.
but as I said before...
after the Tom Canada deal fell through,
I would have told Zeke,
'I am sorry this happened.
I would like you to come back.'
I am still on the fence about the Tom Canada deal.
