If I was face to face with Beinfest and he told me that, I'd punch him the face, kick him in the shin, knee him in the crouth and then pick up a baseball bat and beat him senseless.
Can I watch? I punch like a girl but maybe I can scratch his face.
Obviousoyly youve forgotten who Lary Beinfest is>??
HE got us armando benites and tod djones. JULio throws 99...thats a closer!!1
I dont hear anyone complaining about Owens, Gregg or Lindstrom though. He seems to have so far done pretty good with them. I didnt like the deal as I was big on pettit (still am), compared to most here. But I think you need to take the bad with the good folks
Who cares Ramp? Why all the hate for Beinfest? Big deal....he's what 3 for 4 out of closers??? Armando Benitez, Todd Jones, and Joe Borowski were all wins.
So what if Julio is awful......we have more good Beinfest moves to take over (Owens and Lindstrom)
The big deal is that with every day that passes and Beinfest refuses to admit his mistake, he keeps putting us in a position to LOSE. GMs are supposed to do everything they can to help the team WIN games, not let their obstinance and arrogance send the team down the drain.
I'm pissed that the only person in our bullpen that can't throw a scoreless inning is the closer. All the other relievers that came out tonight were able to pitch scoreless innings. If any one of them had closed and Julio had stayed away, we'd be celebrating 6-2 right now.
The problem with Julio is that he never did anything to deserve the closer role. Others had solid spring training and solid outings in the regular season while Julio continues to fail. All it says to this team is that doing if you do well it doesn't matter, we're still going to go to our struggling closer because "he's our guy". You can't fool the players on the team who should be out there.
