I Pederson hits .800 this month, maybe he makes the playoff roster. Otherwise its the 'experienced' guys who will be in.

Mike, 

I've been away all day and I know there have been 900+ comments so far...but back to the original  topic--I know we 'stat nerds' love to dissect FIP and wRC+ etc. But isn't the goal of trades to win the World Series??  So so far I would say Boston got the better deal. They won it the next year while we are stuck with all these guys who will never be as good as they once were and will be clogging up the field for years to come. I think that should have been Mike's first sentence, not just an after thought at the end

I know we are not supposed to be political here, but isn't this tomahawk chop more offensive than 'Washington Redskins'

@Disgruntled Goat @davstein48 NO way!!!. There is already some Oscar buzz about Shrknado II. Judd Hirsch, John Casavettes, Al Roker , Kelly and Strahan. This is an alstar cast, just like a Woodt Allen movie.

OK, and my other question. Did you catch Sharknado II or Sharktopus vs Ptericuda. At least that made for an interesting weekend?

I'm sorry if this was covered already, but talking about struggling.... Now that Ethier has struckout about 80 straight times. What's up with him?. I haven't seen those ABs. Is he just up there swinging like every  pitch is going to be a fast ball and the hell with it if its not? Or what

@Hoze @davstein48 But I am feeling we really need a #4 AND #5 starter.

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

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

@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

Reply

@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.

@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.
