But it's pretty clear to right-hander Jason Bergmann that he wants Riggleman back as manager. When the media criticized Bergmann's performance, Riggleman would be the one giving Bergmann words of encouragement."Unfortunately, the decision is not up to us. Everybody played hard. Riggleman did a great job managing us and keeping us together. We responded," Bergmann said. "His style was a bit different. He communicated a little bit more, but he was fantastic. I appreciate what he has done for me. I think a lot of guys will say the same thing."Tyler Clippard, who became Riggleman's innings eater out of the bullpen, said: "He has seen what we have. He has a good feel for our team. He has been here all year. With him coming back, he can hit the ground running with this team, so I hope they keep him."
His overall numbers ain't that hot Chief. they are solid but not as good as they should have been. We thought we had a .300, 30+ HR player in Willingham.
I was watching our last series down in FLA and the Extra Innings pkg. had the Marlins announcers on and they were saying how popular Willingham was in the clubhouse and the front office. Then added how they got the feeling that Josh would be back with the club someday. I thought, fine, great. Give us some good value and he's yours. Overpay for him. Fine with us.
Willingham and a throw-in for Josh Johnson. We can sign Holliday.
From a team that dumped him once already due to salary concerns?
We thought we had a .300, 30+ HR player in Willingham.
that's just lies.he was batting .300 and on a pace for well over 30 HRs. Everyone had gone from wanting to trade him at the deadline to heralding him as a cornerstone player. Him and Dunn were on pace for career seasons back in July and they just finished off the season poorly to finish with their usual season averages.
That's fine. We weren't looking for career seasons out of them. A career season out of them changes virtually nothing in the end. I'll be thrilled if we get the same thing from them next year.
They had solid seasons but not career or overly spectacular seasons. If Dunn had finished with a ~.280 BA and 40+ HRs you could have concluded that he had a career season.Willingham should have finished with ~30 HRs and .280 BA.
Linty I know it's maddening but you'll really feel a lot better if you just realize that SF is cuckoo for Zimmerman puffs and refuses to acknowledge anything positive that Dunn does, ever. I know it doesn't make sense at all, but that's just how it is.
yawn. He is not one of the top 20 hitters in the game. nope. He's one of the top 20 power hitters, I will give you that.
Bwhahaha. So now stats/sabermetrics lie?Chief, as an aside, how do you put spoiler tags in post on WNFF? I'm having trouble doing it.
jesus, your own statsheet is darning as hell towards dunn 1.2 WAR, -35.5 fielding, 11.9 RAR, "$5.4 Dollars"jesus
He has a point, though. WAR is a comprehensive rating system that accounts for defense. 1.2 is a pathetic number, and not the WAR of someone you'd consider an all star.
Personally, though, I think WAR is flawed.
jesus, your own statsheet is damning as hell towards dunn 1.2 WAR, -35.5 fielding, 11.9 RAR, "$5.4 Dollars"jesus
