@Dave! (but probably Justin Turner, maybe) @TheConman We take turns in this outfield.

@moneynow27 @Deuce (is loose) Kemp and Puig should play everyday IMO. Flip a coin between Andre and CC vs. righties. SVS vs. lefties. If pressed, I prefer CC.

Bunt DP, League over Paco, Kemp not starting games. I'm angry. But we're 9-5. Breathe...

1 week ago on Reminder: Sliding Head First Is Still The Worst
Why is Puig taking BP if he's injured? Or, is the injury just an easy out for Donnie in the "4 OF" drama?
@TheConman @Deuce (is loose) I deserved that.
If I disagree with Obama but wear golf shirts and no tie, am I okay with Mr. Aaron?
@Purple Drank @Deuce (is loose) @NoHitWin2008 @TheConman Ghost recommendation?
@Purple Drank @Deuce (is loose) @TheConman It is an emergency, but would prefer SVS tonight.
@NoHitWin2008 @Purple Drank @TheConman Tight Dodger Blue dress works.
@TheConman @Purple Drank Emergency=Andre vs. a LOOGY
@MScottEiland "The Captain injected his classy sperm into those lovely ladies with leadership and grace."
@capnsparrow @Batted Bob @ABSmileBunch Nah
@ABSmileBunch Hamilton did the same exact thing as Puig. Did you hear anyone saying anything negative about it?
@Batted Bob @Deuce (is loose) @P_F_P Yes
@P_F_P @Deuce (is loose) Plaschke thinks it.
Punto head first slide at first is gritty, gutsy, and the sign of a gamer. Puig head first slide at first is immature, out of control, and the sign of a selfish player.
@Randy from TPB The guy the Giants dumped was injured.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Padres 3, Dodgers 1: At Least Ryu Was Great
@efb @Deuce (is loose) ...about poor strategic decisions
Not complaining that Donnie lifted Ryu. However, I am complaining about the bunting. Bunting AJ over to 3rd is less likely than Ryu gettting a basehit. And why are we giving the runner second base without a throw? I know the infield was in but Dee could play close enough to the bag to take a throw. That was the 3rd run! Not to mention leaving Wilson out there to die when he clearly didn't have it.
Poorly managed game.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Dodgers @ Padres, March 30, 2014: Grand Re-opening
Kruk and his sidekick have mentioned everything negative they can think of re Puig in 2.5 innings.
Ryu is a cool customer.
@Disgruntled Goat Rick Monday tried to save the flag from such abuse.
@Randy from TPB Second base is not a strength.
I predict that people will overreact based on the results of one baseball game.
@PagansOedipalComplex @Purple Drank I think Rays will win it.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Yasiel Puig’s 2014 at the plate, regression, and his late-season ‘slump’
@PagansOedipalComplex @capnsparrow @Deuce (is loose) Better clubhouse, though.
For those of us who can't stand the Barves, let me offer up this good cheer:
-Tim Hudson is Gnat
-Beachy, Medlen, Floyd, and Venters (Tommy John)
-Minor (shoulder soreness)
-Gearrin "sprained" elbow
@Purple Drank @Deuce (is loose) @Mike Petriello @moneynow27 The color of your drink has nothing to do with this for those of us who like Grape.
@Purple Drank @Deuce (is loose) @Mike Petriello @moneynow27 Sure, but it's fair for a drink to post with humans?
@sbhall52 @Lobo @Mike Petriello *also better
@Purple Drank @Deuce (is loose) @Mike Petriello @moneynow27 Is this little league?
@Lobo Weak platoon.
@Mike Petriello @Deuce (is loose) @moneynow27 Point taken. But if and when he is.
@moneynow27 If Kemp is Kemp, he and Puig should play everyday. I'd play SVS against lefties. That leaves Andre and CC to alternate in left against righties.
@Purple Drank @Deuce (is loose) @Disgruntled Goat You always are a little more protective with the big $$ guys.
@Purple Drank @Disgruntled Goat Don't see they're piling up innings on him when he's working on his regular days of rest.
@Mike Petriello @Lobo Barves B.S.
@Mike Petriello Real baseball
With most players, we'd be tracking their progress through the minors as they "learn how to play the game." With Puig, we watched him help us win games in the big leagues while he was learning. This is amazing when you think about it. His talent was so overwhelming that the lack of training and experience (though apparent) did not hold him back. If our expectations are realistic and people see improvement in baserunning, pitch recognition, and defensive awareness, the sky is the limit for this guy. The cockiness and swagger are who he is, please don't try and take it away because it offends the enemy (and some crusty media types).
@Hoze Selfish guys don't call meeting about their own behavior.

@Tired Math Cat @Deuce (is loose) @Catfishin @LA_Woman Good point, but I think you could get a better perspective from the air.
@Tired Math Cat @Purple Drank @LA_Woman @Deuce (is loose) Would actually prefer quakes to hurricanes or tornados.
@Tired Math Cat @Catfishin @LA_Woman @Deuce (is loose) From a plane or helicopter would be nice.
@Tired Math Cat @Deuce (is loose) K
@Tired Math Cat @Deuce (is loose) Aren't you up in Santa Cruz?
I just felt another decent sized earthquake. Maybe a 4, but short.
