With the young pitching staff Nieves and Bard are wearing out the grass between home and the mound this year.

Harris in at 2B.  Somebody hates Morse.

I'd play both him and Padilla. we are getting very little from 2B and RF.

Willie Harris and Dukes look terrible. play Morse and/or Padilla.

I agree.  What do we have to lose?

If it's not close, we'd better be swinging, Bob, with this homeplate ump.

this is pathetic.

our pitching is god awful and the hitting is somehow worse.

The Rockies aren't this good.

Blah...it's amazing how this team can look so good one day and then so freaking bad the next. It's mind boggling.

They're even better with Hunter Wendelstedt at homeplate.

One positive thing about tonite: I haven't heard a whole lot of Debbi Terrible. Did they give her bland ass the night off or something?

they aren't just better than us, they are in a different league. we look like a little league team when we face any quality competition.

this team is soft. they can't play unless they are facing horsecrap teams like Arizona and Cincinnati.

That will change when Bobby V. comes to town.

If you go through the entire game thread you will spot a couple of these.  :?

no they actually aren't. Jason Hammel giving up 1 run over 7 innings is a joke.

they will not be able to hang with the Dodgers, Cardinals and Phillies in the NL if they happen to make the playoffs.

Our pitching hasn't been great but it's been good enough to win.

It's fine as long as he comes to a complete stop before delivering.

Actually I do too but most of the time she deserves the bigger grotesque one.

Looks to me that he is decieving the runner, if he were a lefty I bet he would get a few balk calls on him.

they fold when it matters most. the starting pitching can't go more than 4-5 innings at this point. the bullpen is taxed and it's showing. the guys are starting to falter on a regular basis.

our pitching hasn't been as bad as the offense but it hasn't been nearly good enough to win consistently.

why does everyone on this team team have to be so streaky?! why can't we just play solid baseball every game like most other teams do?

we freak out against teams with winning records and play like chumps.
