everybody wants to nag about the pitching, but what about the defense? we lead the league in errors by a LANDSLIDE!

Why aren't they publishing my comment on MASN?

I simply asked why Manny pinch hit a pitcher with a pitcher.

At least our commentators aren't blind morons who blindly sing praises of the team.

Carpenter and Dibble have been very critical and tough on this awful team. I'm glad of it. :clap:

Dibble is getting steamed.

I think he's going to rip off his jacket sleeves and pull out the big guns!

Why is that guy on the roster, and Montz is at AA?

Finally a play to cheer for.  Chin music and a caught stealing.

The way Montz is playing, you'll be able to catch him in Potomac soon.

Ok, but Bard can't hit and can't even call pitches. Should have kept Valentin around I guess.

trade Willingham for this Chavez guy, straight up.

The umpire got in a little grab-ass on the catcher during that visit to the mound.

Please Disseminate them to other teams so they can give up runs to the Nationals.

That's true, and a lot of that is on Acta. Regardless, the errors are not the reason why the team has the horrific record they have. It is due to the pitching. Everything starts with pitching, and the worse the pitching, the more opportunities for errors.

We know who the defensive liabilities are, but some of them (like Dunn) are taking it upon themselves to continue to work. For a big defensive mess, Dunn has been willing to play at 3 different positions and has shows some improvement. Meanwhile, the team stuck with Alberto Gonzolez when he was a disaster at shortstop, where you can't afford it. But once again, Dibble is correct. Working on fielding and defense every day is part of the job.

It is inexcusable that Acta would not force this team to have daily fielding practice.

:rofl:

Disintegrate also works.

I missed the game so far, all I saw is Ross's line. Looks pretty good on paper - 2 ER, 6 Ks. How'd he look on the mound?

He was just dynamite. Criminal to take him out after 84 pitches for Cintron.

Yeah, I bet if he had tossed 6 instead of the Mock/Colome show we'd still be close.
