  1. That's why he's up. No need to push anyone of any potential value whatsoever. The name of the game this year (and next?) is to field a group of 25 guys that can complete 162 MLB games.
  2. I don't know much about him, but my guess is that you're right.
  3. The key to ET's post was the "doesn't matter" bit. I've been saying this all year. ***ALMOST*** nobody on the MLB roster matters to the future of this franchise. You could argue for a few guys, but it's more than likely that anyone with any talent will be traded this year or next - whenever their value is at its peak. Ynoa is org filler, and we don't care how he performs, or even really if he remains healthy (at least if he stays healthy we don't have to make another roster move). We have to complete 162 games this year and next somehow. Hopefully Ynoa gets a few outs along the way.
  4. I felt bad about how little I watched last year. Maybe 25 games? And that was a stretch. After watching 150+ for probably the last 10 years, it felt strange, but I couldn't keep watching the same implosion night after night. I couldn't keep frustrating myself that way. Same thing this year. I feel like I earned a lifetime character-building badge from 1999-2011 or whatever it was, so I don't feel the need to put myself through that again when I have a young family and a career that I can devote that time to instead.
  5. Getting a little prickly there, eh, Frobby? All of that passive aggressiveness doesn't look good on you.
  6. Thanks, scOtt. You said it better than I did.
  7. Because I don't want to make it sound like I don't like the guy or that I don't think he's a good manager. He's still learning, and a lot can happen between now and then. But I have a feeling that once this team is ready to make a deep postseason run, they'll find a manager that has the experience to lead them through it. Call it a hunch.
  8. What I'm about to say has nothing to do with anything that's happened so far, but I don't think there's any way Hyde is at the helm of our next playoff team. Nothing to do with him, but I think he's just as much of a stop gap as many of our current 25 man players.
  9. I'm not going to do the research, but I'm fairly certain that Hyde and/or Elias said exactly that before the season started. You know, because analytics.
  10. I don't know if we'll see any more of him at the top of the order. Our 7-9 is going to be a black hole of Davis, Martin, and Mullins. Yikes.
  11. I guess the whole thing about bringing our best reliever in for the biggest outs was, in fact, just more lip service. That was the game right there, potentially.
  12. Well, that sucks. We won't score off of that bullpen.
  13. Just keep playing Rickard in CF. He's a good fielder, but he gets over exposed with too much playing time. Unfortunately, we don't really have anyone that's definitively better at the moment.
  14. If Mullins becomes the hitter that Damon was, I'd do back flips.
  15. Speed with bad instincts/routes has its limitations. At least Johnny Damon could hit, even if his arm was comically bad.
