  1. how much does Garland Cost? More than the min, so he's not an option.
  2. That's really not true at all, Nolasco has been sick since he came back from the minors, obviously his last start was bad but that happens to everyone sometimes. If we get to the playoffs and he's pitching like he has been for most of his starts since coming back, we possibly have the 2nd best 1-2 in the NL. And really that is all it takes, as long as your 3rd starter is ok.. Not really because if your 1 and 2 starters both win but your 3-4 and 5 starters all lose the your going to finish with a losing record. You need 1 or 2 good starting pitchers the 2 solid starters that can give you
  3. If we play .583 ball the rest of the way (how we've played in July and August), we end up with about 88 wins. That may be enough to win the WC, but it would be nice if we could get to 90 wins. It would be nicer to 6-0 the Phillies and take the division, but the Wild card is obv acceptable

    John Smoltz?

    Rays released Jorge Julio. Marlins should go after him and make him our closer Yeah or we could just concede the season and let everyone get some extra time off. I still have nightmares about those games in 07.. pass. smoltz is done Not really, his peripherals are all good, if he doesn't get signed it would be pretty ridiculous, every contending team has a worse pitcher on their staff.
  6. I feel like Cantu just hasn't been the same since the first month or so, whenever he had that injury, he's still good but I think there's definitely some problem there. Nunez seemed shaky in the 9th, kept missing by a lot on his opening pitches to everyone, he seemed to be able to get it under control and eventually throw strikes though. Really need the sweep tomorrow, glad JJ will be pitching.
  7. Huge win, but still frustrating to see the offense not do much. There's really no reason they should be struggling against Joe Blanton...Ricky won us the game, it's very rare that 3 runs is enough to outscore Philly. The offense needs to start clicking and fast...if we sweep here we're right back in the race for the division.
  8. I'm curious to see the team's stats with risp over the season, and runners left on, because I honestly can't imagine any team in history being worse. It seems like we get 2 runners on every inning and just never score.
  9. Adding Bell would be nice since he should be cheap for awhile, but it would be stupid to overpay,we don't actually need him. To have any chance of contending we need another bat, whether that be Maybin or someone in a trade. The current lineup is not getting it done. Problem is I really can't think of many possible trade options for a bat, considering we can't add much payroll.
  10. You're right we wouldn't complain about Uggla, because if he was making that play it wouldn't happen. How do you know that? It's not a sure bet. He may have done the exact same thing. I like how that's the only part of my post you argue against....no reasons why Bonifacio is useful to the team? Shocking... I don't blame him for not hitting, it isn't his fault he's in the starting lineup every day, but plays like that should never be messed up.
  11. For Gods sake, that was one error. Sure, it's continued the inning, but damn it, if that was Uggla you guys probably wouldn't care about it. Boni could be making spectacular plays all night over at third, but one small mistake which could end up to nothing [not talking about tonight] and you guys are all over him. GIVE THE MAN A f***ING BREAK! Are you serious? He doesn't do anything well except run, which is irrelevant because he doesn't get on base. The least he could, the absolute least, is not f*** up completely routine plays. There is no excuse for what he did, he's a natural 2B,
  12. It seems like for the most part the past 2 seasons in any given game Pinto is completely hit or miss. When he goes out there and 4 pitch walks the first batter Fredi should instantly pull him...I don't think I've ever seen a game where he starts off that way and doesn't completely implode. However, Fredi never does that, and basically concedes the games in which he has no command.

    Jeff Conine

    I think people are being a little rough on him, he's a baseball player it's his first few days doing this, I don't think he did too bad, obviously Tommy is going to be much better at it.
  14. The season is basically over. That game was such a joke, the more Philly tried to let us win the more we f***ed up. And if they don't see why Fredi is completely incompetent by now then there is literally no hope.
  15. Better not be more than 1 inning, hope Manuel doesn't try to assassinate him to keep his team in 1st
