Guillen has been trying to play through the arm injury but he can't do it anymore.  He is DL-Bound and if that happens, we get nothing for him.

O'Connor's release point is just awful right now

Fire FR right?


yup.

the team sucks. they are terrible. worst team ever.

but that doesn't let him off the hook for all of his own managerial blunders from years past up til now, no matter how much you say it does.  some people only like to blame parts o the team, while letting other parts of the team(like the manager) completely off the hook for everything.  I believe in passing blame around to everyone who deserves it.

I hope that if the Nats make a miraculous comeback and challenge for the wild card, that the same people who insist that Frank is totally blameless for any team misfortune don't start giving him a whole heap of credit for any successes.

 :D

(still wondering why Guillen penciled himself in to bat 5th).

but that's a different discussion, for a different day.  this isn't the thread for it.

If I hear one more person say he's "pressing" ... puhleese ... enough pressing how about a little plate patience?

They should switch them around. Bad luck about Guillen getting hurt at the wrong time.

So FR is to blame for the bad stuff but if they resurge and make the WC he gets no credit? That's been my point all along. I blame him for his faults but it's not entirely him that's to be blamed. Baseball skippers are overrated by the media and a lot of people fall for that BS.

No question O'Connor's release point is bad tonight but that's not a new development with him. I'm sure they have worked with him on that for years. I just wonder why it hasn't been fixed by now.

Why is Guillen playing hurt when we have the hot Escobar on the bench?


Does the coaching staff even pay attention to the players in pre-game warmups?

You know that's a good point on first pitch swinging even from last year. What could possibly be the reason for that?
