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.

    • Real question, why are you bullish on Hays more than Mountcastle when he has similar aggressive tendencies and has been older at the same levels and has struggled with injuries over his career?
    • Not true at all. I am not caring about the attendance.  You mentioned quality of play.  1910 male soccer is not anywhere equivalent in quality to 2019 women's soccer.  1932 Red Sox average 2000 fans a game. 1970 White Sox averaged 5000 fans a game. 
    • There's no doubt that's true, but we always hope that professional instruction will improve the warts of guys we draft. Mountcastle has had that instruction for years now and still has that same wart. That makes me less bullish that he'll be able to improve upon this one aspect of his game than I might be if he were just leaving college. I'm not speaking for RZNJ, but maybe that's where the disconnect is between me and you guys. I really do value the age/level thing, but I think I'm discounting it a bit because he's already been in the system for so long. I feel like age/level is the reason he's rated higher than guys like Diaz and Hays, but I don't like the profile as much as those guys, so I'd personally rate him below them. It's also worth noting that I think we're arguing on the margins here. I like Mountcastle, but am sympathetic to RZNJ's position too.  
    • Sounds right.   Wells would have been behind Akin last year and Zimmermann wouldn’t really have been much on the radar screen.    It’s great to see our AA staff all thriving.
    • The 2003 Orioles drew less than the 2005 Orioles.  The Nationals in 2.7 million and they have never drew that many fans again. In 2010 the Nationals drew 1.8 million.  It is hard to identify what the loss is but the 2007 Orioles drew 300k less fans than the 2003 Orioles.  But every season between them was a losing season.  I would say the Nationals took no more than 300k a season away.  Probably most likely scenario is around 200k fans a year.   The corporate loses were probably the bigger loss to the team. 
    • This is pretty tough to argue against. I even checked out the Pirates and Diamondbacks and yeah, I'm not sure Villar makes much sense there either.  I agree that he probably wouldn't be viewed as a starter, but more of a bench/utility guy.  It may take an injury somewhere though in the next couple of weeks. Especially since he's going to be sort of expensive next year for a bench guy. 
    • I agree. Let's get him in left and Hays in center the rest of the year and hope they can fill those roles in April in Baltimore.
