Manny Mota is the man.
Carl Creasman is hoping Friedman brings Loney with him.

@Disgruntled Goat @BIah Maybe he's his caddy.
@shooter` @Puce Deuce 3/10
Lackey seems to have lost his postseason magical grit and intangibles.
What the Rays were extremely good at was drafting, identifying, and developing young pitchers. This makes me hopeful.
Let me be the first to nominate Ned to replace his mentor, Brian Sabean, sooner rather than later.
"Andrew, this is your new payroll."
@TheConman @ABSmileBunch And a seat in the front row with Magic and Tommy.
@TheConman @InsideThePark (Empty Stadium) "Ned, your first assignment as Special Advisor is to take over Magic's tweeting."
Do we think Friedman has carte blanche, or is part of the deal that Donnie gets to stay?
@ABSmileBunch @Puce Deuce Gamer
I'm guessing Harold Reynolds doesn't like the GM change. Therefore, I love it.
"Special advisor" to Stan Kasten. OK...
@Disgruntled Goat May your crystal ball be spiked by Rob Gronkowski.

The concept would be that better defense at the two positions cancels out the lost offense. It's about run differential, no total runs scored.

Scapegoat alert. KShaw, Ned, Donnie, Puig. Maybe pitch-X for trying to make the umps call a strike a strike. I choose Dale Scott.

At least we can begin building our middle relief next year with Wilson and League in the fold. The big decision for me is what to do with Hanley. I'd be tempted to let him go, play a glove a short, and use the $$ at catcher.
Don going to Elbert showed me how little faith he had in others. Paco Isotope was sorely missed.
Good question. Don was in a difficult spot going into the playoffs with that pen. Even though they didn't work out, I can't argue with the pitching decisions he made vs. Cards.
Kasten could let Ned piss away more Guggenheim $$ by poorly constructing a baseball team or hire a smart GM. You know-one who thinks past closer experience, grit, and good in the clubhouse.
@Disgruntled Goat @Puce Deuce How's the OC lifestyle treating you? Is you head sunburned?

@capnsparrow @BlueMarvin Not exactly a hot commodity unless there's another "ex-closer" collecting GM out there.
@BlueMarvin @capnsparrow @Puce Deuce Pen by Ned wasn't going to take us to the Promised Land.
@capnsparrow @Puce Deuce Four OF was never a problem, right?
Any rational human being can tell you that putting on a Card or Gnat uni doesn't make you clutch or gritty. Was Kolton Wong clutch last year? When did Matt Adams attain the chemist gene? Lazy people who don't want to really think are the ones who parrot the lame narratives. I guess some forgot how Puig destroyed the Barves last post season.
Going to be hard to advance with Pen by Ned always looming.

Groundball pitchers are good when our left side is Rojas/Beefalo. If otherwise, not so much.

Forget the Haren miracle, I saw Puig make multiple throws-and every one was low and cuttable.

@slaps825 @Puce Deuce Scoring more runs over time than your opponent is a skill.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Promoting Chris Reed before Zach Lee would be foolish
Winning close games is not a skill, it varies over time. Just like BA w/RISP.
@InsideThePark (Academy Rd) Doubt if a +164 would be a wild card, but whatever. The point is that longer sample sizes are better than short ones. The best team doesn't always win a playoff series.
@InsideThePark (Academy Rd) Saying run differential is a better measure of a team's quality is similar to saying ERA (or any run prevention stat) is a better measure than win/loss record for a pitcher.
@InsideThePark (Academy Rd) Mediocre teams don't score that many runs.

Charlie Steiner literally thinks every fly ball is going out of the park.
@poop comes from the Bartolo Colon Swing out of his butt and kill a slider to left, take a tiny little swing and poke 97 into right.
David FrEEsE is not a good third baseman.
@scottyc35 @Deuce (is loose) @poop comes from the Bartolo Colon I was joking.
