You have to 80 in 2 minutes to get a perfect score. I’ve seen plenty of dudes rip off that 80 in a minute. No real point in going past that but it’s  definitely doable.

Never said it wasn't possible.  Just that, like you, I've never seen anyone actually do it.

i will say that no one in my basic was knocking out 80 after four weeks.

I think Mullins is decent getting to the ball, but he has one of the worst outfield arms I’ve ever seen. Having a hard time thinking of someone worse. 

Mickey Rivers was pretty bad at throwing the ball.

I like Hyde. He is absolutely right, when we have the talent level of a .300 team, our identity needs to come from hustle and doing the small things right. Guys who can't get focused in a close game against the Red Sox need to be held accountable. If the Sox are beating us in hustle as well as talent, there is just no way for us to win.

How do you hold them accountable? What penalties are there for sloppy play? It has been said that Hyde has no power to send anyone down, and we’ve seen he doesn’t pull anyone during a game, so what can he do?

At the very least, Broxton should get a day off. Maybe the rest could help his focus, and he could use the day off to practice counting to 3.

Sure absolutely. He should have been pulled during the game. But he wasn’t.

If these players can not get a focus for Red Soxs (Defending World Champs), New York Yankees (Division Leaders) and Tampa Bay (Wild card and Division Hunt) then they are not keepers or future players for this team.  As Hyde related this saying" I’m going to steal a Joe Maddon term here I heard when he got to Tampa - we’re taking inventory of what we have,” Hyde said. “That’s the way to look at it is we’re taking inventory of the players that we have, who’s going to be around for us when we’re good. Just evaluating our players."   These players need to be told EVERY DAY that IF you can not play for a last place team, very few contenders will ever have interest in you either.

Broxton is in the lineup today.Heard  he had a sit down with the Count from Sesame Street. All is good now  

 

Not sure why Sisco is not playing in this series.

Braxton is starting in centerfield again today. So much for consequences.

Certainly odd to have Severino catching a day game after a night game.

It wasn’t really a night game.   4 pm start.    But it did take a long time to play.

Helps there is no real other CF on the roster. That needs to change.

I understand the Taking Inventory term and keep the ones who are good, but so few are good on this roster, I could not in all honesty call them a team. because for it to really be a team there should be teamwork in the games, and  so Maddons comment, while generally a good one, for this group of people has to be taken with a huge  grain of salt.

    • I like the new musical diddys played on MASN in the background during games and going into breaks. Got rid of the old stuff. I like it, change everything.
    • Still a couple more months to go that could sway the voting for me.
    • TJ McFarland...easily one of my least liked pitchers of the Buck/DD era just absolutely carving us up. Kinda helps when you get strike calls at the ankles.
    • That was a shockingly bad strike 3 call by the umpire to Villar.  I have never seen a strike called that low in my life.  Of course it hurts less when you are up 7-2, but still, that was absurd.
    • While it's nice and everything, it doesn't change the fact that Smith is a huge liability defensively and that far outweighs the offense he brings. He's got to hit like Ortiz to offset that if we're going to keep putting him in left field.
    • Very pleased.  Our front office is going after appropriate refuse from other organizations (Ruiz, Smith Jr, Broxton, Wojo) and giving them chances.  We are building out what I expect will be a top 10 analytical organization and introducing analytics throughout the organization in a game of catch-up with the rest of baseball.  We are investing in technology that we didn't have before.  We spent good $ in the 2018-19 J2 period and are off to a great start in this one.  We made a good trade with Cashner.  I believe we had a good draft last month.  The major league team is playing more competent baseball than I expected - especially with our top starter injured.  I love the way the guys in the major league dugout are cheering for each other when there is success.  I think our GM and the rest of the FO are checking the boxes that we wanted checked. Regarding the actual performance of our players, I would we should be absolutely thrilled at the emergence of John Means and the performance of Trey Mancini - two all-star quality producers.  Our minor leaguers are performing IMO - as a whole - above expectations and showing tremendous depth. It's a rebuild.  We still have overhang of bad contracts - not a surprise.  We are giving opportunities to guys who will not succeed at the major league level. I would say the biggest reason I am pleased is that I have more confidence than at the beginning of the season that our next competitive team is NOT five years away.  It should not take until 2024 with the current minor leaguers we have, the projected payroll, the supplementary international talent.  Things are moving forward at a good pace.
