    Are we sure Stallings is the answer though? I don't know much about him but seems like he was nothing until a strong 2020. Sounds like the kind of guy who we trade a lot for and suddenly he goes back to being nothing. Plus he's already almost 32, could have already peaked. Doesn't sound like a sure thing to me, might be buying too high on him.

    When they benched him for Wallach in playoffs, that should have confirmed it IMO. Huge mistake sticking with him after that.

    Agreed but I'm saying they even gave him another year to confirm it and he double stamped it lol.

    This goes back to my post of a few weeks ago about Kim Ng, having 2021 under her belt is gonna make her 2022 decisions even more amplified because she got a full season of this crap already. Nothing should be a question mark for her anymore.

  3. You'd hope they go even harder for a catcher this offseason. They had questions about Alfaro a year ago and he answered those questions pretty conclusively once again so there shouldn't be any excuses to not move on from him now. He's proven he isn't the guy.

    That's what I'm getting at.  Aside from posting on topics here, I checked out of this season months ago - just not going to put time into it when they've played so poorly.

    Like Stanton suggested to us after he was traded, "watch from afar."

  5. This kinda illustrates my point. I don't wanna say Sandy is as good as Scherzer but we already have upper level pitchers like Scherzer. Going after Scherzer would be a poor use of the offseason.

    Our rotation next season have some guys with little MLB experience, with a good lineup he would gives you 15 wins a year. 

    With a good lineup we already have a lot of pitchers who could probably get about 15 wins a year. Let's work on getting that good lineup though.

    What's considered bandwagon?  You know it will be.

     

    Regardless, I feel like anyone that posts here with any regularity - and we know who they are - doesn't belong in that category.

    Over the years I've also realized there's a big difference between bandwagoners and just taking a step back from a frustratingly bad team for a bit, which is what a lot of us are doing here right now. 

    Sports are supposed to be for fun and entertainment. If it doesn't bring that to you then it's ok to take a breath yet still be a real fan.

    What is “loose turkey”?

    is tight turkey better?

    "Tight turkey" sounds like it should turn me on.

    I'd be ok with .500 ball or something close to it. They're on pace to lose 94 games. Is 13 extra wins a big stride considering all the injuries? I don't think so.

    Ok that's fair, I agree with your "it's still a process" posts but I'm afraid of the moving of the goal posts and being ok with last place finishes just because "it takes time." I think it's time to, at the very least, be improving every year at the MLB level.

    If someone (like your sister apparently) tries to pass it off as the original, knowing it's turkey ____[burger, bacon, etc], then no.

    Well this is totally just her pranking me because she knows I hate it.

    and if you cant tell turkey bacon isnt real bacon when looking at it, then you dont know bacon.

    She got me with the hot dogs, that's the only one with no clear difference visually.

  12. Honest question because I have this debate/argument with my sister again and again, how does everyone feel about turkey as a substitute for other meats? I have a big problem with turkey burgers, turkey bacon, turkey hot dogs, etc. I get that it is probably a healthier option but I'm bothered that it's entirely different than the intended product and the taste changes and it just doesn't work for me. Like if I'm eating turkey bacon then I'm not really eating bacon and I can't get behind that. 

    My sister prefers this garbage and has intentionally deceived me with turkey products after telling me they aren't turkey just to get my reaction. 

    Same thing with soy and vegetarian options of things, it's just fake to me. I get the legitimate reasons that some people would choose those things but I'm bugged by the people who choose those things when the original options are perfectly fine for them. Maybe I just hate that this has become like a trendy thing.
