Darn, just when I was starting to like Dave Trembley. :D I guess we won't get to see even one Sunday of Miggy DHing against his will. :(

And just as I talk about Miggy DHing he makes another error that doesn't get scored as one. That force at second would have been easy if he hadn't booted the ball. :002_smad:

I hope for Girardi's sake he stays away from this job. He's a good manager and should stick around and wait for a good opening. He can't do anything with this team. I hope we don't get Girardi and continue our delusions of somehow contending either this year or next. We NEED to rebuild! Girardi doesn't change that, it just makes us think even more that we don't!

Why don't you want us to have a good manager? I have to question whether you are a true fan or not with those remarks.

My impression (which is probably overly optimistic) is that hiring a guy like Girardi, who has had success with a young team, means that we are more likely to goa rebuilding root. I could definitely be wrong though (and likely am).

"They have a process that they need to get through, and we'll see what happens," Girardi told The Baltimore Sun after the interview. "They basically told me that they wanted to do it sooner or later, but it is a process. It was a good meeting. I am not sure what their timetable is."

Oh, God, they've already got to him! :eek:

LOL- do you really think a "good" manager can make us go from 12-under to playoff contention in the toughest division in baseball? Open your eyes! This team stinks!

Perlozzo was a total and complete moron. Great. I'm glad he's gone. Girardi is intelligent but I'm not a big fan of being a complete jerk to the owner no matter how much they deserve it. Still, he could maybe make this team hover around .500 the next few years. Roberts stays on this team and doesn't win until he's too old. Bedard runs through his full prime and trade potential until he's just mediocre and we still haven't won. Tejada continues to regress until we're not even able to trade him for anything; maybe he just leaves as an FA after another .500 season. Ramon will be gone soon...

This team has assets. If dealt when they should be, this could be a good team someday. If Mora, Gibbons, Bruce Chen were dealt when they should have been, this team could have been further on the way to rebuilding, same with dealing Tejada last year. A huge part of this game is dealing players at their peak values before they're close to useless for you.

Now, the following players should be dealt: Tejada, Mora, Roberts, Bedard, Ray, Trachsel, Guthrie...all of them could fetch value for this team that'll bring us closer to winning in the future than they will to us being .500 now.

I think Girardi is a good person and a good manager. If I was his advisor, I would be telling him to steer far away from this joke of an organization.

I'm a fan. Not a butt-kisser. The FO is a joke, the current plan is a joke, the owner is a joke, half the roster is a joke.

Yes, this organization does have potential. We have great pitching prospects, a couple of solid hitters down there, a great fanbase and city and revenue potential. If we hire Girardi to a ten-year-deal and he agrees to stick around through rebuilding while we hire Chris Antonetti or David Forst or Paul DePodesta or someone to be the GM, I'd be the happiest guy in the world. But in it's current state, we're probably hiring Girardi to make a run at winning something either this year or the next. No rebuilding. No trading Tejada, Bedard, Roberts. Nothing.

That would be the biggest mistake possible.

I don't see it like that necessarily. Actually having Girardi here might help make the case to Angelos that blowing it up and getting younger is the best way to go. They can point to the success Florida had with that plan and we would have the manager that, whether deserved or not, was given a lot of credit for it. Angelos trusts guys with track records.

    • Back when we signed Odor, my eyes rolled, probably a medically unsafe distance back into my skull. It took awhile, but he grew on me. Gritty, red-assing, bluster and pimping beyond his skill set, but he grudgingly grew on me. When he was flailing at the plate, and we started to show signs of life, I gnashed teeth, clutched pearls, and silently questioned Hyde's manhood. Recently, I realized Odor is not going to be here beyond this year, and decided to simply appreciate his contributions towards, lets face it, what was looking to be another very shit*y, tank-worthy team. I believe I'll eventually look upon him fondly, in what has been an amazing season, no matter how it turns out. So, a hat tip to you, Mr. Rougned Odor, for your contribution, and also, for snapping Joey Bats head back like a human pez dispenser. That was awesome.  
    • I've been very pleasantly surprised by Mountcastle's speed, and more recently, AR, even Vavra, and blown away by Gunnar..... So, yes, I am also surprised and a bit perplexed by Stowers foot speed (or perceived lack there of). Weirdly, it looks like Stowers is tentative, or something mental more than physical ability to move quickly. But just my impression, nothing to back it up.
    • He is also slower than he looks like he should be which is kind of the opposite of what I normally feel about guys that come up.  Mountcastle, Adley, and Gunnar all struck me as faster than I expected, e.g.
    • Agreed, just from a purely logistics perspective it wouldn't surprise me if both he and Gillaspie are optioned after tonight's game, and someone like Sulser and Vespi are brought up. 
    • He also really looked bad missing that tag at second tonight.   Sometimes it seems his head is not in the game. 
    • I don't see that changing either.  I think he is what he is at the plate.  He could still bring a lot of value in a reserve role. 
    • He can only come back up to replace an injured player. But he would qualify for post season play...
