I'm sorry. but I feel there is a 50-50 chance that Uggla hits a homer tonite. :(

Hey, can we beat winning teams? I guess the next month will tell

Hey the Braves just ate 18 million and dumped Uggla, we could do the same.

My 2 cents. If Haren pitches well, and is a small factor in us making the playoffs........then who cares about 10 million next year. He'll probably be hurt then anyway
@Tony Fernandez (MSTY Most Informative Poster) @davstein48 @Dang88 Billingsley had grit, he wanted to play and not get some sissy operation.

@Tony Fernandez (MSTY Most Informative Poster) @davstein48 @Dang88 Every ten years or so 3 white guys come along with no grit
@Tony Fernandez (MSTY Most Informative Poster) @Dang88 @davstein48 yes every ten years or so a white guy comes along with no grit
@Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) @Dang88 @davstein48 Sure now he'll want us to trade Moody Kemp for him
@Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) @Dang88 @davstein48 OK that makes him good enough for me.
I just want to know if he has grit
Been busy, but never gone

We all know the best chemistry is winning. Billy Martin had great chemistry on his teams. They were explosions
Re taxes: Although washington has no income tax, I believe he still has to pay state tax in all the other states he plays in during the year

@PagansOedipalComplex @davstein48 That's my point it is an indication of poor play, not a cause

@brincon like what?
@EephusBlue @Disgruntled Goat @davstein48 I don't think you can drop 30 points and say it was bad luck. Maybe he played the whole season with 3 broken fingers. But not bad luck
@Disgruntled Goat @davstein48 sure some, in a game or two, but not a whole season. It seems to me when a player is in a good groove he is hitting the ball hard so more balls are line drives and fall in. When his timing his off he hits more weak shots that are caught and turned into outs
I am sorry but I cannot accept that aplayer had a bad year BECAUSE of a drop in BABIP. That useless stat is an INDICATION of a bad year not a cause.
Ok so everyone else is back. So they are saying we like how the third base coach is working. We like How Lopes is helping the running game. We like the progress of the pitching staff. We like the hitting. But we just don't like your managing decisions.

we need a new site next year
@ JohnM but we have to swing at these fastballs that are close
are we forgetting to swing?
I know he's the pitcher, but what was he looking for out there?
I don't feel I can remain a baseball fan if this change is made

9 months, 3 weeks ago on 2013 NLDS Game 4: So It’s Clayton Kershaw
@LA_Woman @ManBearDave @davstein48 @TommyDieterich @Disgruntled Goat He I think Walt Alston skipped Drysdale in game 7 of Series and Pitched Koufax on 2 days rest. He won and we won that series. Sandy retired at age 31. Just ramblin' thoughts
@TommyDieterich @Disgruntled Goat maybe we win and later on throw a tired Kershaw out there again in a must win. Who knows. Time will tell.
@TommyDieterich @davstein48 @Disgruntled Goat A win is great. I think its a bad decision to go on 3 days rest so early in the playoffs when its not in a must win game.
@ManBearDave @davstein48 @TommyDieterich @Disgruntled Goat I would have felt more secure seeing a rested Kershaw game 5 in Atlanta
@TommyDieterich @davstein48 @Disgruntled Goat yes if lose Greinke goes next
@TommyDieterich @Disgruntled Goat @davstein48 if we win tonite
3 days rest after 125 pitches
win or lose I think this is a bad decision.
@3Mayday3 @davstein48 I'll save it for next game
9 months, 3 weeks ago on 2013 NLDS Game 3: Braves @ Dodgers Chat continued #1
you don't even need me
finally some breaking balls
9 months, 4 weeks ago on 2013 NLDS Game 1: Dodgers @ Braves
is that all fastballs that inning?
now you see why braves do poorly in playoffs
@SpaceDodger (ecstatic math cat) too many comments
I'm likin it. Just make him throw pitches. Then waiting for the fastball
I like that strategy. Look at the pitches make him throw strikes. OK he did so far, but OI still like it
@PuntoForPresident (PuigForPrimeMinister) Joe never had grit
10 months, 1 week ago on Okay, Now We Can Talk About the Dodger Playoff Roster
@PuntoForPresident (PuigForPrimeMinister) @davstein48 clearly JP is better
Before today I was thinking two ex Dodgers moving in opposite directions. Loney under .300 for the first time in a long while and Juan Pierre officially better than Joe Dimaggio
@Capnsparrow @davstein48 @Dang88 To use Mike's word-I know this is a board of Nerdery, but they all can't be important
10 months, 1 week ago on Dodgers @ D’Backs Sept. 19, 2013: Clinch While No One Is Watching
@Capnsparrow @davstein48 @Dang88 OK Now I finally get it.
@Dang88 @davstein48 right. Why do we have to give it a new name? Like climate change instead of global warming. or wetland instead of swamp
Back to Mike's original post. Although not a 'stat' I always thought 'regression' and also BABIP are 2 of the most meaningless things to point out. Lets take Nolasco--He comes and pitches 7 games that if he did that for his career would be better than any pitcher ever. And then say 'well his BABIP is so much lower than his norm it cannot last. Well that's deep and when he pitches one bad game its said we knew the regression would be coming. Well ok so whats your point that a pitcher has good streaks that are better than his norm that must end sometime. So you have to give it a name. just sayin'
