Badger and Roger and The Truth can all vouch for the fact that I like to stir the pot… and that’s what I have been doing the past few days. I embellished my outrage… a little… OK, maybe a lot! So, I will come clean. The truth is as follows:
I like FAZ a lot – they aren’t perfect, but overall they have done a good job.
I was on board [...]
So, as not to offend anyone, and in my resolve to be totally politically correct, I am revising my previous posts.
Zach Lee is a fine young man who helps little old ladies across the street, loves Jesus and helps the poor. His first major league outing is not indicative of his tremendous potential. It was just bad luck that so many of his pitches hit bats. It could happen to [...]
Let me cut to the chase. Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi traded team and fan favorite, Juan Uribe to the Braves several weeks ago for milktoast Ian Thomas and Alberto Callaspo. Of course, the Braves just traded Uribe to the Mets. Earlier last week, Juan Uribe beat the Dodgers twice driving in the winning run and he did it again today! The star is starting to tarnish on King FAZ’[...]
As you know, I have never been high on Zach Lee, and while I realize that one game is a very small sampling, this is the Zach Lee I have seen for 5 years! He has decent control and has good enough stuff that he can do well in AAA (when he’s not in Albaquacky), but he really has no outstanding pitch. Evidently, FAZ knew all of this and has protected him by not bringing him up to the bi[...]
Oh, yeah they got Ian Thomas in that unpopular trade of Juan Uribe for Alberto Callaspo who is playing ahead of that Future All-Star ‘Cause He is Sooooo Awesome, Alex “Half Ear” Guerrero. Thomas was pretty impressive, but then there’s this: He is a lefty; and the Mets hit a buck fifty against LH pitching, so the odd are Quas throwing LH cou[...]
… that is the question:
Whether ’tis Nobler in the mind to suffer without Lee
The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune,
Or to take the Arm of Lee against a Team in New York,
And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep…
As you can see, I quoted ole’ Billy word-for-word! As you prob[...]
We lost a server today and that wiped out today’s thread. Sorry…
Our money-making sites have redundancy, but no redundancy here.
We are back – sorry for losing all your comments.
Kneejerk reactions are seldom productive. In fact, they are generally counterproductive.
I am not saying we should trade Puig because he’s not hitting like I think – I have said we should trade him for two years because he’s a knucklehead! That is not a “kneejerk” reaction. It’s my opinion – you can have yours. However, some fans try and[...]
… to have your starter and bullpen destroyed by Nick (First HR of the Year) Markakis or get 14 hits and only score 5 runs? The only problems last night were the pitching and the hitting. Well, the base-running and 3B coaching were also horrid, but… Other than that, the Dodgers played great! Can Brandon Beachy regain his stuff? No one knows… and there[...]
Zach Greinke settled all the arguments about whether he or Scherzer should win the Cy Young. If they voted today, Zach would be the guy, but they don’t and it’s a long season. So far, it’s his crown to lose. By season’s end, it could be Greinke and Kershaw as #1 and #2.
When was the last time a major league player with 20 HR and a .363 OB% was sent back to t[...]
