  1. If MacPhail is smart, maybe he'll set it up so that Gonzalez closes those last 2 games.
  2. He also said that David Hernandez has had a good week getting ready for his start against the Nationals.Huh?
  3. Of course there is a drop in negativity after a couple of wins. That's human nature.But the degree of the negativity is certainly proportional to the product we are seeing on a daily basis.Just because some of us are fed up with what we see doesn't make us less a fan.Too much negativity after a loss? Well,you know,there is a solution.
  4. Well,MacPhail is the one who sees the purchase of bats as the way to go about building a contender.I'll say this.If it's last winter and my choice is Jason Bay or Garrett Atkins, I'm taking Bay all the way.Maybe this allows moving Scott or Pie or even Jones, allowing us to obtain a Billy Butler or such.Hey, I've been a MacPhail supporter all the way.But I think he is much too averse to risk and much too conservative with the money available to spend.He has a beer appetite on a champagne budget.
  5. The marketing arm of the Orioles apparently made the decision to make Adam Jones the face of the franchise, and the kid has only ever had in his young career a good couple of months.I think everyone on this board can see the pressure this has put on him.A big bat would have taken some pressure off of him and the other kids in the lineup.We were told the FO would buy the bats,and we went to Kmart to get ours.There was no means of support for our young hitters.If it's important to get a solid veteran for the pitching staff(which I think it is) then it's equally important to get that solid bat t
  6. The Rays are heads and tails better at scouting and player development.
  7. Pretty disappointing for sure.Paraphrasing here: "Are you satisfied with Matusz and Wieters?" "Can you remember another time in your career where you've been as disappointed?"For the love of God!
  8. What minute are you referring to?:laughlol:
  9. Absolutely pathetic approach by Wigginton there.
  10. Are you sure that's sausage?
  11. The kids want to play, but the veterans have packed it in.
  12. Let's see if I have this right.We're playing a team that is losers of 11 out of their last 12, one of the worst road records in baseball, facing a starting pitcher who hasn't won a game in 4 years, with a bullpen with the 2nd worst e.r.a. , a weak hitting team all around (Or they wouldn't have Ryan Freel) and we struggle mightily to put up any semblance of an offense? Honestly, for every 1 step forward this team takes (last game at Fenway),we always seem to take 2 or 3 steps backwards.
  13. Huff, Scott and Mora. What a sorry lot.
  14. This offense hasn't been in a groove for over two months.
  15. No haters.Just legitimate questions.
  16. THE most winnable game of the whole year, and my goodness that is saying something.
  17. Any stat gurus know what team leads the majors in LOB's?Seems like we would lead by a wide margin.
  18. Trembley has given up on another game.That's just baseball I guess.
