I hurt for these guys. So many wasted opportunities. The utter futility of it all must be as numbing for them as it is for us. One would think somewhere along the line the law of averages would catch up and they'd all find themselves on the same page and be able to sustain it for a while.

But no.

Ronny Cedeno now has a better batting average than Cutch, Tabata, Diaz, Wood and Alvarez.

I say sign him long term.

OK, well, I've invested enough of my evening in this one. Can't take it anymore. Going to bed early.

Clint Hurdle is starting to really screw the pooch with his bullpen decisions. Your reliable bullpen guys pre-Hanrahan are McCutchen, Beimel, Veras and Moskos right now. Why would you ever bring Ascanio in in that situation?

Hurdle is having an awful game.

Boy - I could not agree with you more. You tie the game, Tabata blows it by not driving him in, you need a win and you rely on Ascanio? Really? He's leaving me perplexed.

We have heard the stories about Hurdle overmanaging and we saw some of that in the first month. But we are really seeing it now and it's hurting even more because the players are not playing well.

I like his attitude and optimism. His personna is much better than Russell. But he gets a C-with his in-game decisions right now and that grade is heading lower.
