After last nights heartbreaking loss, I won't be watching this one. So maybe that's a twisted luck in me starting the game thread. Good luck to whoever chooses to watch.

Koehler vs Nolan Ryan

Fuck this team.

How do we do this every year?
You already know. I feel this all started in 2010 for some reason. Despite an 80-82 record. Well maybe even 2011, our last year at the old stadium.

Well, that was obviously our turning point, but as you know, I don't buy into the "I can't think of an original thought" line.  The funny thing about this team specifically is that we have finally limited it to one problem, and the solutions to that problem are in our own goddamn system.  The bullpen would become manageable if we got rid of Narves, Morris, and MocGowan, and replaced them with Barraclough, Ege, and Ellington.
Yes. In talking to silver bullet, ask yourself this: HOW MUCH WORSE COULD IT BE IF WE HAD BARRACLOUGH, EGE AND ELLINGTON? ....this is why these guys we have now have to go

It would be a grand improvement, sample sizes be damned.  Barraclough did more than we asked last year, and Ellington did his job.  Ege looked good in ST.  How much longer do we have to wait before what we've been saying for months is deemed "official?"
Scared of how long man. Personally one of these guys should have replaced narveson by this morning. Sooooo....I'm not sure of the hold up

I had a feeling that either Narveson or Morris would get the sack within forty minutes of the last pitch, but nope.  We cut Caminero loose after one measly walk-off homer.  I kind of really wish we still had him, actually.
Agreed 100%

Copied from my texts with Vince this morning... I think Mattingly likes the thought of using veterans, and the FO wants to give those younger guys more seasoning since they didn't have great springs. That's not entirely a bad idea in theory if we had better replacements but we don't so lets bring them up. At this point Barraclough, Ege, Wittgren, Ellington can't be any worse than Narveson Breslow and (to an extent) McGowan. Morris can stay if he's relegated to mop up duty and the occasional fifth or sixth inning appearance.

How many times does Vince say "C0L" in his texts?
