I agree with you, although I don't know what "playing like your hair is on fire" means in baseball. It's not like football defense where you can hit anything that moves. :)

Is that usually a football saying?  I just remember hearing it before :lol:

If we resign LaRoche, then Morse has to be moved, I think.

Danny is fine if he continues to hit in the #8 spot.  He plays great defense. 

Morse is a problem in LF defensively but he's a good hitter (typically) and can move to 1B.

He's the worst reliever in the pen. Why aren't we going to someone better??!! freaking stupid

He's not.  He was overused in the regular season which is why he's been lousy lately. 

Face it.  The stupid Strasburg crap freaked everything up and we all knew this would happen once we shut him down. 

The only reliable relief pitcher we have is Storen and that's only because he wasn't over-used.

16.20 ERA for Stammen. Davey's obsession with him makes no sense. What is he saving our best relievers for??

Yeah I agree, cant save them for a game that might not happen, we cant afford to give up more runs

I shut the game off. I'm done. Won't watch tomorrow either.

I'll take my NL East Championship T-shirt and hope for next year.

Can't argue with that.  Though I'd prefer to keep Morse over LaRoche.

2-1 series isn't too bad. We've won 2 in a row before.

I guess my advice is next time you finish at the #1 seed in the NL, maybe push your chips to the middle of the table and try to win something. Don't shelf your best pitcher in hopes that you get back to that spot a year or years later. So stupid.

I'm teetering on that.  I try to like Morse but I don't see what he brings over LaRoche.

You'll watch tomorrow. We all will. This has been an UNREAL season either way.

If it's a 1-2 year deal I'd prefer LaRoche. I'm a sucker for defense and Morse's drop in walks disturbs me a bit.

There absolutely is something to it.  The pen was great until September and our starters routinely went six innings as a maximum.  It bites you in the ass in September and October (if you make it to October).

Unless Strasburg is the only pitcher who can hold a team to negative runs...

Just because one scenario doesn't work out doesn't mean the alternative would have.

You think he has more upside? It's not like Morse is a kid. He's 30, right?

If that's the case, shouldn't the starters be pitching better now because they were "underused"?
