The 2019 Blow It Up Thread
« Topic Start: March 30, 2019, 04:42:05 PM »
Window is slammed shut on this team. All offseason and ST we heard about how this team was going to work on fundamentals. Really shows. Cant hit the cutoff, cant field flyball, cant catch and tag, and cant make contact. While their manager was taking it on the chin, the players couldn't give two craps. They dont have an edge. No chip on their shoulder.

Its time to blow it up. Everything. This franchise needs a revamp. Fire the minor league coaches for not being able to teach the basics. Fire Rizzo. He clearly cant hire people.

Trade Rendon. He ain't signing long term and I'm starting to believe his attitude is part of the problem. Get what you can to prep for the future. Along that line, Gomes and Suzuki are expendable. So is Doolittle.

Tell Zim to retire. Move Soto to first. Play Noll everyday. Send Robles back to Double A.

My prediction was 4th place in the NL East. I stand by that.

I think that's the Dulles toll road in the early 90s.     Looks like the last toll eastbound toward DC.   Good old days  ...

Last year was a 162 game suckfest. As fans, we deserve better. I expected to see a much more crisp, fundamentally sound team this year. 2 games in, they look terrible. This team can’t afford to get off to a slow start. Hopefully Rizzo will fire Davey before it gets out of hand. I refuse to accept another .500 season.

Of all the dumb threads in the history of WNFF, this is the easily most asinine. Great troll job by our master troll.

DAVEY IS 82-82 AS A MANAGER

HOW IS THAT NOT ALARMING?

Under his guidance, they’ve been one of the most sloppy and careless teams. Nothing has appeared to change in 2019. You can wait to make your judgments, but I’ve seen enough. With Davey at the helm, this team is doomed for another .500 season. I’d like to play important games in September. Change is necessary. There’s talent on this roster. We need to find a manager that can maximize it.

Mark Lerner has been quoted recently as wanting an always "competitive" team.  In the past, I believe Rizzo has mentioned wanting a "championship" caliber team.  It seems that our lofty goals have been moderated somewhat...

Next thing you know, the Lerner's will express a goal of being able to pay for payroll with concession receipts.  That would already seem to be an unspoken goal...

AD - even you aren't really in the blow it up camp. You want Davey gone.  You might not be alone.  But would you be dealing Doo, Dozier, Rendon, Eaton, the two catchers and Sanchez right away?

I'd deal Stras. Also Corbin if we don't win his start tomorrow.  ;)

I was listenin' to the post game show and somebody commented on compensation and June 1 but I'm not sure how that all fit together.

You’re right. I believe in the talent on this team. At 82-82, it’s evident Davey isn’t fit to lead them.

You pay for having a cheap manager/coach.

Ted Leonsis experienced this many times. Even then, he got lucky Trotz was desperate to get back into coaching and took a cheap $2M per before Ted said no to fair market value this offseason.

:lmao: Dusty was only here because he was cheap. Because everyone knew he couldn't manage in the playoffs.

Black would've been a good manager for this team. I had forgotten about that. That's a shame.
