Re: Game Day Comments - August

Delay has reached base 3 times today, why is Shelton PH for him with VanMeter??? Shelton just loves the lefty/righty matchups when the Bucs are hitting, but he could care less when the opposing team is hitting. Drives me nuts. Sabermetrics often overlooks the most obvious stat which is who has been...

Re: Cleveland DFA's Franmil Reyes

Franmil Reyes now 5 for 12 with the Cubs and he homered last night. We missed out on that one to a team I can't stand.

I know. You made that pretty clear. :)
For now, I am going to enjoy the building. You aren't going to kill my optimism!

Re: Thoughts to send to the manager.....

I also was trying to figure out the new service time rule where rookies can get one less year. I probably need some help from someone smarter, My take is if you are on the major league roster for 86 days as a rookie and rank in the top 22% of rookies (by some method), you can get to free agency one ...

Re: Thoughts to send to the manager.....

Good point, we're doing a really good job of trying for that worst record. The Nats are going to be hard to catch though. Going to have to add at least a couple of hitters for this team to have any chance to compete. We are not really trying for the worst record, we are trying for one of the worst ...

Re: Other Roster Moves 7/22/22

Wasn't sure where to put this, but Yerry De Los Santos being out for the year to me is a big blow. I thought his stuff stood out from the average Joe. Closer potential all the way. The way players are going down in MLB (especially pitchers) is frightening. When sabermetrics took over and the game tu...

Re: Game Day Comments - August

When Rodolfo connects, he looks like the real deal. A homer and triple last night. By me saying that, I am guessing he will give us another head-scratcher move tonight. :)

Pretty cool Dan. Do you have anything booked from September 5th to September 12th? I will be in Pittsburgh with my daughters then.

I am saying we are 2 years away from being competitive in the division. Maybe I am being too optimistic, but the last time I said we were two years away was in 2011.

Re: SOG/GOG

My vote for last night goes to Tucapita Marcano. Marcano great diving catch. Stealing second. Getting an extra base on a hit. #1 is how he scored from third when there was a rundown between first and second. He might not be an everyday player, but can make things happen when he is in there.

Re: Castro Called Up Mitchell to AAA

As I make a case for Castro, he now makes national sports news. He slid into third base and his cell phone came out of his pocket. I think having an electronic device like a phone is illegal to have in the dugout or on the field. MLB is looking into it.

Like I said, I was impressed that he laid down a bunt. He did draw a walk yesterday I guess. He is only 23 still.

Re: SOG/GOG

Being a guy that follows prospects, I have a lot of respect and the plan of the new GM, given the spending I am guessing he is allotted . I don't have confidence in our owner. I think we are two years away from competing, if he goes out and spends money on players. Our situation seems very similar t...
