Acta is so damn clueless. He never gives guys like Flores and RZ credit in the press conferences but he is always quick to slurp guys like Cabrera and Hanrahan.

of course that's never occurred to sportsfan. he hates Rizzo because he replace Bowden.

you know how he is with his "boys" and his "enemies". :rofl:

Rizzo hasn't really done a great job so far, but sportsfan is going to blow everything as far out of proportion as he can and make Rizzo out to be the most incompetent person in the history of baseball, in the hopes that someone besides him might actually miss Bowden. (fat chance).
I don't miss Bowden although he was better than Rizzo. I just want a GM here who is active and is constantly trying to improve the team in several different ways. Even if Rizzo makes some moves now it's still way too late since we are 12 games under .500.


wow that was a terrible AB by Hernandez. He probably missed at least 5 hittable pitches.

They could still replace Manny and be cheap by giving Riggleman the position for the rest of the year.  Manny has got to be on his last limbs here and I sure as hell hope St. Claire is too.

But I'm sure he would have to given a raise commensurate to the position of manager. Also, you'd have to hire someone to take Riggleman's spot as bench coach and that is another salary you have to either pickup or upgrade. That's the same reason why they refuse to get rid of Cabrera. I'm sick of seeing that clown on the mound but if they cut him they still have to pay him and then pickup the salary of the one they select to replace him with. That's dipping into the profits which is anathema.

trade him for whatever we can get. surely someone would take him. it does nothing for anybody to keep him here riding the pine.

and if we do that, you'll be making another SCREW YOU MIKE RIZZO thread screaming and crying about "thanks for trading Willingham for *insert crapass player*, you suck Rizzo.

:rofl:

come off it, Sportsfan.

any AA prospect or ML reliever would suffice for Willingham.

I would take Kyle Gunderson back in a heartbeat for Kensing.

Riggleman's last team, Seattle, where he was interim manager, is 15-14, in 2nd place in the AL-West.  Riggleman went to school in suburban Maryland.  They had been in 1st place for several weeks.


Fire Manny and Claire, tonight

I'll give you that much, but it still would be fairly cheap compared to going out and hiring a guy from outside (I wouldn't be surprised if they just gave Corrales his old job back).  I understand that the Lerners were willing to tolerate losing for the first few years with Acta because of the youth and lack of talent, but at this point we have talent.  The bullpen has been blowing games, sure, but it isn't soley on their shoulders at this point.  The errors in the field are mostly on the fielders themselves, but there has been a lack of fundamentals.  The pitchers have been coming out with horrible game plans for attacking struggling batters.  Whether they put that on the scouting team or the pitching coach, I don't care.  As management, though, at some point you risk losing the faith of your fanbase by doing nothing.  It is has gotten to that point.  They can be cheap if they want, but it will lose them more money in the end I believe.

Fairly cheap vs not paying a cent over what is deemed 'necessary' is a no brainer for the Lerners.  :?

I agree that it's time to get rid of Acta but with this pitching staff it's not going to accomplish much.

I'm drinking the Amber Lager XX as I type... not bad stuff.  I also have a 6 pack of some Old Dominion Millennium lager in the fridge, which is delicious.

True.  I mean, we have just barely missed out on winning a bunch of games, maybe just a little bit of improvement could go a long way. I have no illusions of competing for the division and at this point finishing .500, but I would like a bit of respectability going into the off season.

Oh damn.  Vegas is awesome, I went there for spring break my junior year in college.  The best part is you get free drinks while you gamble.  Where are you staying at?
