  1. For all the Yankee fans here… http://www.catster.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/grumpy-cat-meme-18.jpg
  2. I like Gutierrez. I am much more forgiving of a terrible bat if it comes with an excellent glove
  3. Of course I don’t disagree with anything you said, except It is apparent to anybody who watches him wandering around the outfield that his defense was so bad that it did indeed cancel out his offense. Whenever I hear the phrase, “and he’ll back up and play it on a hop.” (Which is not an error, mind you) I always think of Mark Trumbo. Because that’s what he did; he would back up and play it on a hop, unless he rushed in and let it go over his head, or he rushed sideways when the ball was going that away, or he rushed back when the ball is going this way.
  4. I really like Ryan McKenna. I see absolutely no reason he can’t be a solid fourth outfielder for years. Mullins, Hays, Santander, McKenna, And that is a top flight outfield.
  5. Mark Trumbo hit 47 home runs and was worth 2.7 WAR. Home runs ain’t what they use ta be
  6. I don’t disagree, but I think my point is still valid. If Sulser is one of our top seven bullpen guys next September, Something is wrong. I’m not saying he’s bad, but we should have plenty of better guys by then.
  7. You know, the idea of bringing up a terrible pitcher to eat innings is a misnomer, because if you bring in a terrible pitcher and he’s terrible, He is unlikely to see three outs, much less consume meaningful innings, so Bringing up a terrible pitcher to log some time on the mound is illogical. Plus we only have 12 games left, and the jury is still out on some guys, why bring up a guy who has revealed who he is?
  8. I wish we could put the myth of “big time MiLB numbers” to bed. It doesn’t mean nothing, but it doesn’t mean much. I love McKenna. He can run and he can glove like few, but he hits as well as I do, and his MiLB numbers mean much less than his MLB numbers. He’s David Lough with greater speed and less bat.
  9. Oy… and yes, that’s my vote.
  10. I’m genuinely sorry about Wells, I really like feel good stories, and it doesn’t look like his is going to have a happy ending. The jury may still be out on Greene as well, but Sulser is getting up in years. He’s been ok, certainly worth the waiver claim, but if he’s one of our seven bullpen guys at the end of next season, it will be a very bad season.
  11. I made that comment as he was coming in, because I was expecting him to be terrible, because he’s usually terrible. The fact that he wasn’t terrible doesn’t really change the question although I agree that it could’ve been better timed. By the way, the question could also be addressed to the other pitchers. Among the three, I think Sulser will probably be back, But that’s not necessarily carved in stone
  12. Is there a particular reason Tate should be on the team next year? Asking for a friend…
  13. (Sigh) this is why you don’t try to take the extra base if you’re as slow as Christmas, Trey.
  14. Trey has no business trying to take an extra base, ESPECIALLY when he’s hesitated and already lost a step.
