WTF is Ortiz doing???


Servin' 'em up!

Quote from: "PC"
This team desperately needs pitchers, next season.  And not the leftovers from the previous seaosn (hello, Tony Armas) and not the scraps remaining from the bottom of the barrel (hello Pedro Astacio).

Stan Kasten (and the Lerner Family): Open the damn pursestrings and get some MLB caliber pitchers!


Now, now....we can't do that.  We have to unload and do with what we have so we can accumulate enough payroll to sign the Multi-Million Dollar Left Fielder....

Ortiz's pitch count is already 57.  I'd pinch hit for him, here.

What are the chances that he finishes another inning???

I'd pinch hit for him as well but it seems like our starters never go deep unless it's the two AAA pitchers.  Our bullpen has been taxed.  Our veterans can't get out of the 3rd inning.

Did you hear what Bob said?? He said this isn't Tom Glavine out there, Blue.

Zimmerman's not happy about it, either.  I think that's the first time I've seen him really get visibly ticked about a call.

  • The Lerners are Cheap AND Crooked
this umpire is awful....i'm livid about those strike calls...it wouldn't be so bad if it were going both ways but it isn't...but it was nice to see zimmerman finally show his frustration about a bad call to the umpire....

McCann chased two bad pitches, so what does Ramon do? ........ Throw him a hanging slider of course.. He doesn't have an effing clue.  You don't have to throw strikes to get the Braves hitters out!!

Giles and Renteria should NEVER get hits because you never should throw a strike to them.

Brian Schneider should start swearing and throwing chairs at the beginning of the season!

and Francoeur and LaRoche.
Nice throw Brian!  He is looking more like last year's Schneider at the plate and behind the plate

Come on, don't leave Lopez on 2nd!  I would kill for AK to hit one to the opposite field like Lopez and Zimmerman

I gave up on this game and decided to watch my Steelers pre-season game instead of a game that counts. We suck. :(
