Where is it?

Time for Fredi to go ape on this team behind closed doors.

How do we fix this?

No Fudamental baseball = Team finishing below .500 (And at this point we aren't a 500 caliber team). I'm afraid these thing won't be able to be fixed on one season

This team will be 10 games over .500 after June. Book it.

These guys are all still young. Early season struggles are inevitable. As the season progresses, so will the team. We've had some big harships early on, losing Tank, Hermida, and Julio's struggles... All we need right now is time.

In 2003, when I predicted our win total and wild card finish to a tee, and then we won the world series, wasn't I considered the "jinx"?

Seems to me I should jinx us everyear.

You forgot something - striking out way too much at the plate. Showing no discipline whatsoever.

Gee, I never would expect the youngest team in the league to have these sort of problems.

This won't go on for long, we've got a lot of injuries right now. I think when Tank, Hermida, De Aza, and JJ are back in full force, we're going to be a top team.

Is his fault, he messed up the team's cohesiveness with the Julio fiasco. It kills the entire composure of the team

We sure do, we also need to get Pasta out of CF

?

1) Most of them aren't rookies
2) There is something called the minors, where players are supposed to be instructed and work on the fudamentals

So Julio is to blame? pleease

If what you say is true, then we have a group of weak minded and is going to be a very long season.

So every player that has been in the minors for a while is expected to not make "fudamental" errors? Oh OK.

Is not about not making errors. Is the frequency that is happening.

I think the number 1 problem so far this season is the starting pitching which has been terrible. The starters are 15th in ERA, 16th in BA allowed (.304), 15th in innings per start (this is excluding Mitre's last start), 16th in OPS allowed and 16th in WHIP.

Our pitching was generally o.k. to start the season (first 6 games) bad starts tend to follow in succession....the starting pitcher can pitch perfect just to have the the reliever or closer consistantly ruin your perfect performance. Team chemistry is severly affected behind closed doors because of this...and our W-L ratio in the last 7 games proves this!

Sounds like a ban bet to me.


If there 10 games over on June 2nd I take 2 weeks off.


If not, you do.


Deal?

I sat Batters Box for that game and he was absolutely filthy.

I was shocked. His ball had so much movement is was scary.
