@PagansOedipalComplex @Frank J Lapidus He'd hopefully be ok as a number 5...he was bad for that stretch last year but pretty damn good otherwise. The Giants were able to get by with Vogelsong.

@PagansOedipalComplex @Frank J Lapidus Meh. Oddly, if they didn't throw in Haren to the Marlins, I'd say our rotation would be set right now.
@Paul ran out of puns, is just Paul now @Frank J Lapidus Well, a big reason why I wasn't so down on the Kemp trade talks was that I was hoping they would get Wisler and send him to the Phils along with guys like Lee, Reed, and Schebler. That might not get it done, and well it didn't happen anyway.
Now, we'd have to at least part with Joc plus those guys and I'm ok with that. It wrecks the outfield defense tho.
I distinctly heard Friedman say at the midnight presser that they're looking for 2 more starters. Add to which the earlier statement by Farhad (I think) about how they prefer to add to the front of the rotation. Now McCarthy is one of those starters, and he always seemed like a no brainer good fit, but not the front of the rotation type...so I wonder who they have in mind for the 2nd.
I was hoping Hamels, and while that didn't happen this week like I wanted, it could still happen.

@LiterallyPFP @Frank J Lapidus thanks!

@LiterallyPFP @Frank J Lapidus Nah. I posted a bunch on MSTI, but mostly a lurker these days
Really sucks losing Kemp, but it seemed like it was going to happen for awhile now. Still, I'm old enough to remember watching Piazza and Pedro come up through the minors. And of course, Konerko.
So kinda used to getting my heart ripped out while I watch, before being dipped in lava /templeofdoom
1 year, 2 months ago on NLCS Game 6, Part 2: Why Is This Still Happening
Fuck. Ok you win
I just disagree
Unless your the giants. Then, you get ole'd right in
Id like to resign Wilson. Fuck it, if Ned can pay League all that money to mop up he can pay the Beard.
Why the Cards couldnt do this shit the Giants last year is another reason to hate them...barry fucking zito, really?
1 year, 2 months ago on NLCS Game 6: Kershaw. Wacha.
Mattingly should get ejected that ump just fucked us hardcore
That 'strike' to CC was way worse
Oh fuck these umps that was a strike
Since when did Wacha become the best fucking pitcher ever....score some fucking runs off him and its all good
Ellis shouldve had that?
And here I got flamed on another board for calling them lucky. I mean how fucking obvious was it? Oh ueah, and they broug back the exact same fucking team and couldnt sniff .500. So yeah....lucky
1 year, 2 months ago on NLCS Game 4: Cardinals 4, Dodgers 2, So It’s Come To Michael Young at Shortstop
3 outs bitches
1 year, 2 months ago on NLCS Game 3: The Return of RoboHanley
9 more outs
That looked more familiar
Another hit with RISP!!!! WTF be goin on here???
A hit!! with RISP!!!!! What the hell IS this sorcery??
Who's going to give the Hunter Pence 'it wasnt over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor' speech for us, though?
1 year, 2 months ago on You All Know There’s No Way Ricky Nolasco Starts Game 4, Right?
The David Price tthing is kinda tongue in cheek. Im all for signing Tanaka, stay the hell away from Cano, and see what happens with a hopefully healthier team.
It has to get out that we're willing to spend big and sour the trade market, who wants to give up the farm for a rental? Then we get him chap. Yeah, do it Ned
And I want David Price in that mix too!
Bring it on!
I want to be wrong so I hope you're right! Lol
Conte is Ned's bff, he gets fired when Ned does.
I have to think the team has gone sufficiently deep in the postseason to placate management into giving the team leadership a mulligan for next year, and just hope these fuckers stay healthy.
Ned's not goin anywhere. Thus, neither is Conte. Mattingly will be back, because no one fires their manager for losing the championship series in their first try. Especially under these circumstances. And Falsone wont be scapegoated either.
@1Someperson1 Not only on him. Even it stayed 0-0, they'd just lose in extras. Gotta hit.
1 year, 2 months ago on NLCS Game 2: Cardinals 1, Dodgers 0, A Different Kind of Pain
Exactly. Of course they had hfa but yes, the Cards have been shown to choke recently
1 year, 2 months ago on NLCS Game 1: Cardinals 3, Dodgers 2, That Was Awful
Yep, and why not bring SVS in instead of MY. Oh, thats right....veteran grit
Its not necessarily must win, but then if we cant win the greinke kershaw starts we're fucked anyway. So far, we're 2-2...not that great.
He hasnt, in fact im confused that he's pitched so well and given up so few baserunners that how the hell he's allowed any runs a all, let alone 4. And all with 2 outs.
Yeah, really wish the team didnt coast in Sept, they were ahead of the Cards about a month ago.
Esp since he didnt have to give up any if he gets Joe Kelly out
1 year, 2 months ago on NLCS Game 1: Even More Extra Innings
Those were bad, but is offense did fuck all after the 3rd no matter what shitty pitcher the Cards threw out there. They better get it together and fast...real fucking fast
As much as im pissed with mattingly, it was the miserable offense and greinke giving up that hit to Kelly that did us in
One of these years they'll win a NLCS Game 1. At least the Gnats showed last year it wasnt necessary.
not our night since Kelly got that hit
Throw strikes dammit
Guys hitting after Hanleygonna have lots of chances this series methinks

Ok lets go!!! Leadoff runner on!!
