Alright...Bynum...

And the error wouldn't matter if Trembley would stop calling for the damn intentional walk. This is at least the 3rd occasion this year where the IBB lost the game for us.

The intentional walk to Stairs was smart. Stairs kills RHP so it was the right move. Rios was the one that scored...

Game should've NEVER been tied. Giving up 4 runs to tie it up....every bit as bad a GAFF as Bynum's. Bynum is just the last player to blame for THIS loss !!

Bynum was the cherry on top of a whole poorly executed game.

At least this team is competitive.

Yeah instead of yawning at them, you want to rip your hair out...

They are losing too many games that they could win by playing smarter baseball and executing correctly. But that just goes to show how far we have to go.

Hopefully Trembley reads this team the riot act...

It's not an excuse for that. It's a dang rug. Unless the ball hits a seam, it bounces true. It's faster than grass, but that wasn't the issue here at all. He just failed to do the first thing every LL-Dad tells his kid: get your glove down.

Have you ever taken grounders on a basketball court? I thought I was a pretty decent fielder until this season when we took infield. Bounces are insane, the ball comes a lot faster, its hard to keep your glove down. Now, turf is obviously not as extremely bad as hardcourt, but its gotta be pretty tough.

The error doesn't matter(at least immediately) if Ramon doesn't throw the ball into CF.

The error doesn't matter if DT made a better decision on who to bring in with 2 on in the 7th...Or if Ramon calls something other than a fastball.

You could go on and on...Bottom line is this team is in trouble and the losing is a total team effort.

Very true... but maybe if Bynum did a better job of getting over to back up that throw it wouldn't have gone far enough to allow Rios to go to third.

I'd pitch to him, that's just me. If we're going with the RHP crushing excuse, Mr. Rolen is hitting them to the effect of an 858 OPS this year.

You hope your catcher is good enough that the SS doesn't need to back him up in RF...

That was the worst loss I've seen in a while. I've missed some of our more recent debacles.

We have plenty of people to blame for this, but I question bringing Sarfate in with runners in scoring position. He really doesn't know where the ball's going when he throws it, and once he gets behind in those situations, things can get ugly. I like him better starting off an inning.

Bynum needs to be off this team. Fahey can play -- that double he hit after fouling off a bunch of pitches got my attention.

And Ramon can't get gone soon enough. Can we get ANYTHING of value for him, and go ahead and bring up Weiters?
