I usually copy and post a previous post, so that the letter font is immediately taken care of ........ then I adjust the commas and the periods.

I'm a pretty fast typer, also ........ perhaps I inherited that from my late mother, who was a full-time secretary.

So for repetition’s sake, you’re not a fan of The Oxford Comma?

As a fan it's easy to pick on Davis. As a person you have to feel sorry for him. 0 for 15 with 10 strike outs. I really worry about him and his family.

I'm still not sold that Richie Martin can hit. 

Nor should you be. His BP today was decent, but he's really scuffling so in live pitching. Jumping from AA is tough!

Mike Elias in the seats enjoying OPACY's conessions and sitting behind home plate. 

Shouldn't he be out scouting players for the draft?

Slacker.

Sorry I don't have enough compassion to feel sorry for someone paid 160 million dollars to be the worst in history at what he is paid for.

He could always take a settlement and stop the embarassment

I do not have to feel sorry for him.  He can retire today and never have to work again.

Oh yeah. I'm not giving up hope just yet.

Just make the plays in the field. This year don't matter. Give us a reason to keep you in the lineup/25-man then you'll be OURS for the future.

Rickard covers more ground than any outfielder we have.

Yeah, that looked like the same ball that fell in twice when Mullins was in center. I'd have to look at the EV and and launch angles though to confirm.

    • I don't imagine Mason Williams will be able to play the next few days so we will probably get to see more of Hays on this homestand.
    • From a purely impersonal point of view, I agree with you.    But in the real world, guys who have been with the club most of the year and have made some contributions aren’t going to be completely cut off.    They’ll get tossed a bone here and there.     And yes, I realize that one can debate whether Smith or Wilkerson  “made some contributions.”    
    • It was intended as a wisecrack.    The mores of 1976 weren’t the same as today.    Believe me, Weaver said a lot worse.     As to Cuellar, I understand Weaver made the remark after Cuellar complained about not getting enough starts in 1976, a year in which he went 4-13 with a 4.96 ERA (66 ERA+).    To me it was just Weaver’s colorful way of saying that he felt he’d given Cuellar plenty of chances that year.    Not a comment on Cuellar’s overall performance during his career.    And my point in quoting Weaver was that Cuellar got a lot more chances that year than a pitcher without his track record would have gotten.     Even Earl Weaver believed that a guy who had earned it over a long period of time deserved some rope.   Buck was far from alone in that regard.   
    • They have to many players on the team.  I think they should be evaluating the guys who need evaluating.  I think we can close the book on Smith and Wilkerson.
    • I would keep Villar.  He is a good major league player.  We have too few of them to give them away.
    • It was a cheap shot on his first wife as well.
    • I haven't done the full 40-man eval but I'd protect him over the other guys you listed. Would the plus curve and the slider that is more slurrvy, I think he's got a pretty good chance of being a solid bullpen arm. From July to the end of the year batters slashed .147/.284/.206/.490 off him with a 0.47 ERA over 19.1 IP with 22 Ks and 11 BBs. Agreed the fastball command needs to tighten up a bit but at 93-95, it has enough on it to keep guys honest even when he not commanding as well.
