whatever. only 4 games back with a MONTH to go. not time to overreact.

 

 

I wouldn't call it overreacting with the current state of our starting rotation. The team hit over .300 in the month and ended up with a .500 record. :|

 

Exactly. If our pitchers can't find a groove, then I don't think we have a chance. And also the Rockies , Giants and Braves would both have to play worse then we are right now, which doesn't exactly strike me as something that has a good chance of happening. Marlins for 2012 WS Champs!

Another great example of how important good pitching is.

 

I agree that the SD series was probably the summary of this team for the entire season, but especially August. We still had a better August than we did last year.

And this interesting comment from Dan Uggla after the game.......

 

"There's no sense of urgency,'' Uggla said. ``There's still time, there's still a lot of games left. We're all calm and relaxed and I'm pretty sure we're going to stay that way.''

They need to have urgency and find it now.....I just became a fan of shipping Uggla somewhere else after the season. I will not cry if he is gone. That is not a champions way of thinking.

Ah, Mr. "see ball, hit ball" has never been known for his intellectual depth. I certainly don't think he (or anyone else) is slacking off, but thinking that having no sense of urgency at all is OK is denying reality.

 

They are what they are, a little above average, and certainly anything can happen. The problem is that the odds of anything good happening are rapidly diminishing by the day. Which is nothing that a 10-game win streak won't cure, but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

I agree with Nny that urgency tends to not bring good things. I'd expect more wild pitches, pop-ups, etc. if players are truly pressing. On the other hand, if they can bring added excitement and passion (because they know they are in the thick of a playoff race (although paid professionals really should play with the utmost passion every day anyway)), then that's cool, although the line between those is admittedly quite blurry.

THIS IS NOT A CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM

 

even if they did make the playoffs, IF. there is NO f***ING WAY they'd get past the first round.

Hahahaha. Man, I almost love Danny's "approach" sometimes. He's the first one to admit how shallow headed it is too. (Though he might not phrase it in such a way.)
