then why would YOUR BOY BOWDEN pick him up?  why were other teams after him this offseason?  you know all though. 

every year he's won 8 or more games.  i'm not saying he's a good fit here or he's going to do well here (i already said he is gonna have a bad one tonight).  but we weren't going after a 8 million a year starter, we tried to find lightning in the bottle.  so far, nothing great.  if the experiment fails, then oh well, at least we didn't waste 8 million. 
giving D-Crab a couple million probably wasn't smart but bringing him in here in theory wasn't a bad idea. We gave D-Crab a chance to turn it around and hope that we catch fire but it didn't happen. He's the same pitcher (except worse) than he was in Bmore.

Correction: Having Cabrera finally figure it out and pitching lights out gives us the best chance of winning games starting tonight.   :doh:
but the odds of that happening are close to slim. the sooner he is gone the better. Crab is a lost cause.

I hope he succeeds tonight but it he doesn't I hope it's ugly.

92 mile per hour fastball for a strike is a good way to start. Solid out is even better.

Half of them are Cards fans, and the Nats other 500 fans are watching on TV. 10 of us are here. :(

I think D-Crab took St. Claire and Acta's advice. He's just slinging it as hard as he can to get the velocity back up.

they told him they don't care how many batters he walks as long as he throws harder. :?
