The Rockies hitting is in no way good enough to overcome their pitching. The hitting in that ballpark leaves the Rockies offense overrated. Cargo is overrated. Arenado is overrated. Even that shortstop is overrated.

I have a completely illogical reason for not wanting Samardzija on this team. I am being completely emotional here. Samardzija is a freaking Domer. Couldn't stand him there and I love watching him lose. I could not love watching him lose in a Dodger uniform. I would actually have to root for him and then I might die. Oops! Now I am getting logical. I don't want to die.

What do you think about the start of the season so far Vince? I think the hitters are still trying to get their legs underneath them and I think we may see a hitting explosion within the next couple of weeks.

Hear! Hear! I have said this about Matt and that blasted home plate play until I am blue in the face. Kevin Kennedy said Matt is on a mission. If he can get and stay healthy this season, we could be looking at an MVP type season. Matt is going to be the cherry on top of our hot fudge sundae World Series championship.

Yeah Vince, I believe in the rule that the shortstop can play any position except catcher and pitcher.  SS can go right or left. CF can go right or left. SS can go to the outfield. 3B can play outfield corners with time. 2B can usually play any outfield position. Much harder to move in from the outfield. Usually doesn't work.

@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.

@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.

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!
