@DBrim @TROBOB He's better offensively against lefties than Young or Hairston and he has more power as well. Their gloves aren't nearly as good as his either.

@DBrim @TROBOB Not during the playoffs and he would be taking at bats away from SVS. Like I said, Hairston is now redundant. We could carry Van Slyke's better glove and bat against lefties into the playoffs if we go with only 11 pitchers, which is what we should do. I don't want Young as a DH against lefties in the World Series either. I can see that train wreck coming.
If only he COULD hit lefties! And what's wrong with Scott Van Slyke who is actually hitting lefties? I guess you could say this acquisition sort of makes Hairston redundant now.

@BATBOB When I see kids in my class who wear their hats like that, I call them "Gomer"
Gomer's IQ was 3
Except he was already the "most dangerous hitter in baseball" and had been for 12 years.

The game hurt plenty! I hated it. I hate the sacrifice bunt. I hate the Yankees! I hate the way it ended and I hated, not appreciated, the fact that Mariano Rivera closed it out. That was no treat for me, no matter what Vin said. I want to win and especially against those guys.

@Omer It's called Dodger Stadium
@Mike Petriello @Lobo @TROBOB I didn't like the move until he explained it, but I thought maybe Hairston had caught the Carl Crawford gunge or something. I thought that maybe Don didn't have a choice in the matter.
@Mike Petriello @TROBOB He said it was because the potential run was on second base (I think Votto) and he didn't want to let it go. He said that he knew Hairston wasn't going to like it and that he went to him immediately to explain.
It should read "he did not want to go into the ninth inning down by a run."
I actually liked the Schumaker for Hairston switch after he explained it. At the time, he wanted the guy with a better arm in the game because he knew that he might need to cut down a run in a very low scoring game. I think he did not want to into the ninth inning down by a run. That is the way he made it sound. And maybe he knew Dusty wouldn't bring Chapman in unless he had the lead. LOL!
The term agnostic in Latin is the same as ignoramus

Season over if we don't win the second game and I think you can kiss Mattingly good bye if so as well.
@splendid @IBBFTW Who plays second base against righthanders? Just get Cruz and his curse out of here. I have now dubbed him "First Pitch Popout" As long as we have this curse on the team we will not be successful.

Ramirez struck out against Grilli. No shame there right now. He would NOT have been facing Grilli in the sixth. Don has made totally lousy critical decisions all week.
I want my best hitter with power hitting fourth and my best two OBP hitters otherwise hitting first and second. My second best power guy hits fifth and my third guy has to be pretty good. My sixth guy should have some decent power and running ability and then I go with the last two guys wherever they best seem to fit. AJ Ellis, despite his on base ability really fits that eighth spot well as he can extend innings and help keep the pitcher from leading off an inning.
