It would be stupid for Zimmerman to rush himself and go on rehab next week.

lmao at our hitters. Arroyo owning with ease.

He's getting drilled this year. Except today, of course.

There is no reason for Walnuts to be on this team.  None.

Arroyo has gotten knocked around a lot this year in the 5th and 6th innings. Maybe those will be our "big" innings.

In both our games against him last year we scored 5+ runs off him after 2 innings. We suck. Manny should be ashamed for putting out such a terrible lineup.

Arroyo should achieve his first CG of the season today.

We should have scored on Arroyo by now.  This is sad.  :icon_frown:

At least we get to watch real Major League Baseball tonight.

How?  (Unless you have MLB Extra Innings.)  The Porioles are at 4:30 pm on MASN playing Texas, who absolutely crushes righties in 2008.  Remember that 30-run game in 2007, P'Os?

Another Debbi Taylor Moment:

Using Arroyo's ERA coming into the game (6.19) we should have 2.75 runs at this point in the game.

Am I the only one who gets pissed off watching Arroyo's goofy little leg-kick? I guess it wouldn't bother as much if we could actually hit him.

We'd have a terrible lineup, regardless. Not Manny's fault.

dumb as crap. Never walk the #8 hitter with 2 outs. That is the type of thing that cost you games. Idiotic.

Do you really think we have the same amount of talent as the other teams he's faced?

QFT. Put me in the freaking booth. I can see this crap coming before it even happens.  This team is freaking garbage.

Yeah, because the walk made Dukes miss that, right? :lol:

I'd pinch hit for Bergmann to lead off the 5th inning. He's pitching horribly. How in the freak do you walk the #8 hitter, Paul Bako, with 2 outs and nobody on base? That alone should warrant a removal.

Bako should have never been walked. I blame Bergmann more than Dukes. Arroyo should have been hitting next inning.

How?  Dukes is not a good defensive player.  That is a routine play.

That's ridiculous. Dukes just cost us a run. The inning would have been over. Walking a guy to get to the pitcher w/ two outs is done all the time. It's not always the right move, but it pretty much guarantees you'll finish the inning w/out giving up a run.

Dukes missed a routine catch, Bako scored from first, and Arroyo made it all the way to third.

Bergmann enabled it all to happen. He also let Arroyo hit the ball too hard. It would have been nice if he struck him out.

Dukes should have caught it though, obviously. I find it hilarious that whenever we praise someone on the team for something (Dukes and his great defense earlier) that they always find a way make us look stupid.
