Save that LOL for the Mets, I believe that it is a trademark infringement to use it for another team.

^No kidding. They went from buyers to sellers in a week. Not that they have much to sell.

I wish someone would take Jason Bay, we'll take back a bag of balls and some chew.

Don't worry, he'll hurt something again by the weekend.

Everything that lead to their 1st half success is falling apart. The starting pitching was lights out, Wright was playing like an MVP, and they got timely contributions from a bunch of no name kids.

Now the wheels are coming off the pitching, Wright is back to Earth, and the younger players are fading. The worst thing are the defensive and baserunning miscues in recent games.

That idiot Chad Durbin being sent in by the even bigger idiot Fredi Gonzalez. Bochy and Fredi were trying to out-stupid each other last night with incredibly stupid decisions. We were all saying Durbin was going to lose the game for us in the 9th inning or so. He's a worthless piece of trash that needs to be in A ball. There's one pitcher for the Braves every year that sucks complete dick and he's the guy this year. I just don't understand why we have to fill the extra innings guy who can't get outs quota.

It really seems like the longer a game goes, the more idiot a manager becomes. I was really surprised Bochy took out pretty much his entire line-up (Cabrera, Posey, and Sandoval) as the game went on. Giants got lucky with the long ball last night.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

David Ross is just amazing. If McCann chooses to go somewhere else during free agency, we need to try to convince Ross to be our regular catcher for a while.

Buster Olney quashed this rumor right away -- it doesn't seem to have any traction.

I'd laugh so hard if the Marlins went into a hard sell mode just a few months after opening up their new stadium.

The Dodgers, Braves, Red Sox and Cardinals have all made it known they'd like Dempster, though the Dodgers are supposedly the front-runners for him. The Cubs had said that they wanted Dempster gone by the end of the week so they could ramp up the market for Garza, but he's still penciled in for tomorrow's start, so it doesn't look like that's going to happen. Complicating the trade market is that Dempster and his family live in Chicago and he isn't terribly interested in leaving (though he's agreed to waive his 10-5 rights), so it's entirely possible that a team could trade for him, only for him to return to the Cubs with a team-friendly contract in the offseason.

Garza's another story. The Red Sox are in on Dempster, but they really want Garza -- the problem is that their system is barren and they have nothing of real value to trade, outside of someone like Middlebrooks, and even though Ben Cherington is a moron, he isn't nearly stupid enough to trade his new toy (even though I wish he were).

C'mon, Theo. Ship Garza to Atlanta for Julio Teheran. Be a wizard.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

What the problem is RIGHT NOW is that the Mets have a different lineup every single game. When they were playing their best, the same team was sent out game after game. Now, who knows what the starters will be. What happen the Mets became somewhat successful for all the reasons you mentioned, so instead of keeping to the fun of playing the kids and some other pieces, they are now TRYING to win. Go back to just playing, let the kids play. This is the starting line up I want, every day regardless of who is on the mound.

1. Ruban Tejada SS
2. Kirk Nieuwenhuis LF
3. David Wright 3B
4. Ike Davis 1B
5. Lucas Duda RF
6. Daniel Murphy 2B
7. Josh Thole C
8. Andres Torres CF

That should be the starters, regardless who is on the mound. Except when people need a rest and so forth. If Scott Hairston makes another start, I will pull my hair out. He is a pinch hitter, thats it. It pains me to no end to see him in a game.

I'd say put Torres #2, and Nieuwenhuisin the 7 or 8 spot.

I like Hairston, Cedeno, and Valdespin off the bench for the occasional at bat. And i want to toss a bag of rabid ferrets into the bullpen.
