    Gotta go with Cal.
  1. vs. YANKEES, 9/07

    Everybody relax. Manny will hit an 8-run HR to win it in the 9th.
  2. Connolly: Cruzing

    Sure. But if he was our FT DH now, and never had to wear himself down by playing defense, I would think his production would be more consistent had we re-signed him. For an aging player that's more of an offensive asset than anything, that would have been my plan, anyway. I think it's paying off for Seattle, too. The exact details of my previous post are more or less irrelevant. RF, LF, whatever. He played a good bit of OF that season, and probably shouldn't have. If we kept him and just let him hit, I think we'd still be enjoying some great offensive production out of him.
  3. Connolly: Cruzing

    Could have been different if he was our full-time DH instead of playing RF every night in the steaming hot Mid-Atlantic summer.
  4. vs. MARINERS, 8/28

    The spectators lol
  5. vs. MARINERS, 8/28

    Raise your hand if you think you could beat Castillo in a footrace from home to first.
  6. vs. MARINERS, 8/28

    Tonight? Probably over Gentry so he can face a struggling starter. Gentry is a defensive replacement, though he's had a nice game tonight.
  7. vs. MARINERS, 8/28

    Why hasn't he been playing? Not that good? Not MLB ready? BTW, tie ballgame...
  8. vs. MARINERS, 8/28

    You are the reverse-jinx king. But I'll never understand why Buck leaves guys in a little too long SO often even though he gets bitten by it SO often.
  9. vs. MARINERS, 8/28

    I don't like being right when I'm being negative.
  10. vs. MARINERS, 8/28

    No doubt. But we also know how quickly an inning can get away from Tillman.
  11. vs. MARINERS, 8/28

    If Tillman is fortunate enough to get out of this inning with the lead, I hope Buck pulls him and starts the 6th with the bullpen.
  12. Britton-Long Term Deal

    Gotta agree with this. A few other bullpen arms have emerged this year, and more will be on the way in a week. On the extremely off chance that we slide ass backwards into a WC spot, we are not likely to make a deep run with other good AL teams like Houston and Boston looming. Get Zach back on track for next year and hope he regains his 2016 form for a championship run in 2018.
  13. Roster moves in the next several weeks

    Any of the young OFers get a look in September? DirtyBird mentioned Sisco - think he gets a look? I'd like to see Sisco and Hays, unless Hays would be rushed up too quickly.
  14. I'm not afraid of Cleveland, KC, Tampa, NYY, or Boston, but I would think we'd need someone to knock off Houston for us. Problem is that would require us to win the division, because Houston is running away with the best record in the AL, and if we win the play-in game, we're heading right for 'em. Then again, we kinda felt that way heading into the 2014 Detroit series and their crazy rotation, sooo.... Just saying. I'm not sure how much more I want to invest in a team that likely has to defeat Houston, BOS/NYY/CLE, and the Dodgers to win a WS title. But I think we are heading to the post season, and we are capable of making some noise. I definitely believe we can be as good as anyone when we're clicking.
  15. I'll frame this as "spring training starts in 48 hours and we still have potential holes on the major league roster": 2 of the 3 pitchers for $8m or less each Hardy for whatever Flash has been making, or $6m But it would have to be pretty apparent that we can't fill these holes internally with minor leaguers. I'd consider this to be a pretty bleak scenario, too. I will say, however, that I'd be most likely to bring back Tillman only on a $7m deal if he'd sign it right now. I'm just not convinced that he's done for his career.
