  1. Glenn Davis or Chris Davis?

    I think this is my biggest issue with CD. His contract is going to prevent us from being able to resign Machado. We likely wouldn't be able to do it anyway, but that contract really doesn't help.
  2. I'll admit, I never expected them to take 3. This was a fun series to watch.
  3. vs. ASTROS, 4/04

    Some luck going our way!
  4. vs. ASTROS, 4/04

    I'm kind of torn. The 2 guys in front of you walk and you swing at the first pitch. Yet, I like to see them swinging at pitches they like.
  5. vs. ASTROS, 4/04

    Yikes, Blue. Sheesh.
  6. Ongoing Lineup Thread, 2018

    Its one of those things where there's no good option with some of these guys.
  7. Ongoing Lineup Thread, 2018

    That's the kind of lineup I would like to see every day. No Davis, Rasmus or Alvarez.
  8. vs. ASTROS, 4/04

    Hoping Bundy puts together another good start. No Davis in the lineup. Woot!
  9. Amidst this sea of negativity

    10-40 is about I would expect.
  10. Machado is one of the last things I would complain about at the start of this season.
  11. Amidst this sea of negativity

    You can call it negativity, but I feel like it is realism. I'm not surprised at the 1-4 start. I will be surprised if we are 3-7 come Monday. I hope we are 5-5.
  12. Anyone else slowly growing tired with Buck?

    While I don't like this Davis at leadoff experiment, I can't put the blame on Buck 100%. We all know how last season ended and DD didn't do a single thing that made the team better. I think he made the team worse. I would rather see Santander play every day than Rasmus. At least you're giving a young guy a chance to see what he has in the majors. That's why I admire the optimism on this board. You guys can ignore the lack of effort of DD's part and still have hope. It may not even be entirely DD's fault either. I'm sure PA dictates a lot of what happens. He at least holds the purse strings.
  13. OOTP19 to add 3D animations this year

    The OOTP forums is where I first heard about this place. I've been playing OOTP since OOTP2. Glad to see folks here who enjoy it.
  14. The Brightside

    I admire the optimism some of you have in thinking that we still have a chance at a good season. IMO, there was zero chance of winning 80 games with our SP and the holes in our lineup. Then, Buck puts one of the biggest holes in the leadoff spot for the first 4 games. Our SP is not good enough to win 80 games. Pedro, Rasmus, Davis & Gentry are not the type of players that start on an 80 win team.
  15. Chris Davis to leadoff?

    I'm surprised at the folks defending this idea and defending CD. .327 is not a good OBP. The guy is on the wrong side of 30 and he had a terrible year last year. He's not going to be much better, leadoff or not. I hope he's worth the $23 million as much as anyone, but he looked so lost last year. I don't see how its going to be any different this year. 2023 can't get her soon enough.
