  1. I wouldnt have them start sitting on pitches to drive until they can prove they can actually recognize pitches. This team has let more fastballs down the middle go by and swung at more down and away sliders than i can quantify
  2. Well, you have to ignore Don Kellys tenure as a pitcher, but sure.
  3. I find myself momentarily surprised that i instantly take the side of the athlete over the reputable newspaper... But then i realize its 2019 and its not surprising anymore.
  4. I dont know why we at least wouldnt have explored the option of keeping him and signing him to a cheap deal next year and see if he can find his control during the offseason. If he returns to form, that could at least net us another Demeritte
  5. Can you do this to Whit Merrifield or Nelson Cruz next time we play them?
  6. I dont mind playing the Pirates every year...but i definitely dont consider it a rivalry.
  7. This is why you dont make them play different positions all the time
  8. Life was better when the Belle Tire girl was the focus of our attention.
  9. The problem i have with the schedule being earlier is that its just gonna take that many more games for all of the latino players bats to warm up 😆
  10. So, how bout those deadline trades? What a whirlwind, amiright?
  11. Because we arent worries about winning and he wont be on the team next year
  12. We will win the World Series in 2024 when we can call up all 9 Don Kellys
  13. Once Stewart is back, they just need to run with this till rosters expand C- Rogers 1B- Dixon 2B- Castro SS- Goodrum 3B- Lugo LF- Stewart CF- Reyes RF- Demerritte DH- Miggy Bench: Hicks, Mercer, Beckham, Ronny And we dont need to play 2 of the 4 bench guys every game.....maybe once a week each. I also dont understand the point of our bullpen strategy. Alexander, Ramirez, Soto, Hall and VerHagen all as long relief? Then Cisnero and Schreiber who cant be trusted in high leverage spots, Farmer and Joe. Basically if we go to the pen before the 7th inning, we are probably losing....which will happen at least once every 5 games when Zimm comes back.
  14. If Niko and Dixon just keep hitting, theres a spot for them as bench players. Both competent multi-position players with good speed on the bases. I think between now and the trade deadline next year is gonna be it for several guys- especially some of these bullpen pitchers. Im all for giving Alexander, Schreiber, Cisnero, Jimenez, Soto, Hall, etc looks between now and then....but theyve gotta show us something before Fulmer and the real prospects start popping up in Detroit if they want to have a big league career.
