OFFNY

vs. ANGELS, 7/23

Recommended Posts

I'm upset that they blew the first game, and I'm mildly annoyed that they're running out their B-squad offense for tonight's game. Manny's absence can't be helped, but Lough is a bit much.

Also...if you're watching games with the expectation that they're going to lose, IMO, you're doing it wrong. They took the first two games of this series. It's not about "odds" anymore...it's just a thing that's happened. They need to take this one now.

Yep, Lough has no business on the field except as a defensive replacement at this point. And batting second???

We should be going for the jugular.

I'm certainly not watching games with the expectation that they are going to lose.

But it's baseball. Even if we are a great team we are going to lose 38% of our games, and it stands to reason that we'll lose a higher % than that when we are facing the top teams in the league on the road.

Yeah, I hated blowing the first game.

Basically you are upset about one position tonight... Lough getting a very rare start in left, a lefty hitter, and giving a day of rest to a RH Pearce against a tough righty. I mean it's not Buck's fault Manny is out, and no matter who plays 2B or C it is going to be a fairly weak hitter. A good manager finds spots to get his bench guys into games. If Lough was playing nearly every day like he was early in the year I'd be pissed too, but when was his last start? He is better defensively than Pearce and worse offensively, to me it's just as likely that Lough could save us a run with this glove as it is Pearce could add one with his bat.

Honestly I thought that he had more starts than that against us. I just remember a lot of domination from JW...I stand corrected.

I was being a bit selective... the site I was on shows last 10 starts vs the opponent... the 9th and 10th starts, in 2007, were both Angel wins, so I cut it off at 8 to make my point seem stronger. :)
