    vs. YANKEES, 7/09 (GAME TWO)

    I heard Jim Duquette say Saturday that 28 relievers were traded last trade deadline so there is little chance the Os won't find a trade partner for Brach. In a related story Brach continues to say, "hold my beer."

    If this isn't a team trying to tank they are doing a very good impression of one that is.

    This. Big time. Palmer loves to quote how stasticslly your BA drops significantly when pinch hitting. 3 pinch hitters in the 9th, most importantly ph for one of ur top prospects, who doesn’t get the chance to see what he is made of for a marginal part of your organizational depth. Just stupid.

    So the send by Dickerson.........yeah.......

    Schoop to the lead off, promptly goes 0-3 leaving 3 men on base. Checks out.

    Yeah, if you are that afraid of letting your cleanup hitter hit with the bases loaded, the answer is not to send the runner, the answer is to not let that hitter hit. The more pitchers the opposition uses and more pitches they throw, the higher your chances at successs. You cannot send guys because you are afraid of your number 4 hitters abilities.

    It’s moments like this when I start to think the only answer is we are tanking on purpose. That was a completely moronic send.

    I am adamantly opposed to signing schoop to a long term deal. He will be 28 in his walk year, he has 2100 plus major league at bats, and a career .298 OBP. He is what he is right now. 2 years would be max deal I would give. Maybe an option for a third year. But he is not a guy at this point I would wrap up for 4 years.

    vs. WHITE STOCKINGS, 5/21

    Agreed. And that was part of my point. If not coolbaugh then it’s the players. But something is wrong and it’s not working. I think after 2 seasons plus it’s no longer a rush to judgment that something is wrong (not that you said that it was a rush to judgment.)

    vs. WHITE STOCKINGS, 5/21

    Point taken. And I was aware of these facts. So my question is (and I am legitimately asking, not being sarcastic) am I over concerned about strikeouts? I think I saw Os are 4th from last in most Ks in AL. In 108 outs recorded in Boston over the weekend, I think I saw Os k’d 39 times. That is over 36% of outs in 4 games.

    vs. WHITE STOCKINGS, 5/21

    7 of 21 outs for Os are strikeouts. This team is consistently + 30% of outs are strikeouts. I am tired of hearing how Coolbaugh is preaching patience and on base. If he really is saying this to these hitters either they aren’t listening or aren’t capable of complying. Either way some change HAS to be made. They have 9 ks and I don’t think Davis has struck out once. Some change somehow has to be made.

    vs. PHILLIES, 5/16 (12:05 PM Start)

    So basically winning 5 out of 6 was an aberration, this team still only scores when when they hit home runs, they strike out way too much, and the deconstruction should and will begin in about a month. Got it.

    vs. ANGELS, 5/03

    Welp, now I can go to sleep. To coin a phrase, "Sad."

    vs. ANGELS, 5/03

    I gotta say, if changes are not made after this road trip, either of players or coaches, I cannot see myself getting to a game this year, which might be the first time in my adult life. If the organization does not care enough make some kind of effort to change the path this team has been on since August of last year, I see no reason to give them my time or money. Getting no hit by a rookie or middle relief spot starter is like a nightly event now for this team.

    vs. ANGELS, 5/01 (Sc0tt-Friendly)

    Interesting. Of course, Buck essentially lost his job with the Yankees in 1995 because he refused to fire Rick Down as his hitting coach. Steinbrenner was probably looking for a reason to fire Buck, but told him, fire Down and we can talk about a 2 year extension. Buck declined to fire Rick Down, then Steinbrenner sent out a press release saying Buck turned down a contract, so he is no longer manager of the Yankees. So if Buck has a say in this, I have doubts the Os will allow the Os to do what the Rangers did.
