Recommended Posts

Yanks up 9-1... would of been nice to play a team that is throwing batting practice all night, what a joke!

I feel like Mark Reynolds had one two week hot streak this season and has been absolutely atrocious with the bat the rest of the time. He is basically an automatic out at this point.

I know they didn't try to make those mistakes but after the first one throw him breaking balls a foot off the plate. I can sleep after a game if Joyce or someone else beats us. I hate letting up 3HR's to one guy on the team with that weak of a lineup. This team doesn't have depth offensively like Texas or NYY. To me Adair and Buck should have talked about it after the first one. No way can I let him beat me.

You can certainly build a case that the Orioles did not pitch to Longoria correctly. After he hit the first home run, they should have pitched around him the rest of the game. Not sure how you let him get three pitches like that when the rest of the lineup does not scare you in the least bit. Oh well.

Well, obviously Texas. They have been horrid. We had two poor games. They had 12.

Well texas is still scoring runs, they are just being outscored. We just aren't scoring, let a lone hitting the ball.

You're never as bad as you look when you're losing.

You're never as good as you look when you're winning. (Except yesterday, we actually looked bad winning :D)

Yeah it's not going to matter. We aren't going to get even one run tonight. Ryan Roberts could have beat us by himself.

    • Lets look at both Santander and Nunez offensively at 26 years old Season WOBA WOBACON Barrel % Hard Hit % Exit Velo XBA XSLG XWOBA XWOBACON Renato Nunez .341 .453 12.1 36.4 86.3 .228 .433 .301 .388 Anthony Santander .358 .404 10.2 36.7 88.6 .286 .510 .338 .378 MLB AVG .317 .370 6.4 34.9 88.3 .250 .414 .321 .376 They are not significantly different though Santander is ahead in the most important OBA and especially XWOBA categories.  The key here is defensively value and cost. Santander is a switch hitting plus defensive RFer while Nunez is a DH. If Nunez played any position effectively, he'd be offered arbitration. Santander's issues have been staying healthy and he doesn't walk much, but then again, he doesn't strike out all that much either. Overall, Santander is a more valuable player than Nunez and this is coming from a guy who think Nunez is worth more than obviously the rest of baseball does.
    • Late to this thread but here's mine. Santander I don't expect any more than he gave us this year before he got hurt. But that's ok. A whole healthy year, that's a solid MLer. Hays... health is the biggest question. Total wrench in the gears. In a full year I would expect BIG things from him. He's not going to hit 30 HRs, but he might hit 30+ doubles and steal 30 bases. Play a stellar CF. I like Austin a lot! For a CFer he's what you want, a take charge guy. If there's a Bermuda Triangle pop up, and he can get to it, he will scream out and call everyone off. I noticed that from his first few games up. Not intimidated when he hit the bigs.
    • The original recording has a girl speaking Spanish in the background in a sexy voice. Like 40% the volume of Burdon. At one point she says in English "Are you listening to this?" Right after 3 minutes in. This 45... on the MGM label!  
    • YouTube came up with another of my favorites. That I have history with. 40 years ago my sisters and my cousins would listen to this 45 record endlessly! I was blown away by this song at 11 or 12 years old. Then 20ish years ago I found this live video online and was blown away a second time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3i0DMbCKnAg click it
    • I don't know how other folks classify this... avant garde? To me this is Punk. Like Devo. An influence on Devo!  
    • Then what makes you think another team would give us value for him?
