Colonel Flagg Amaro is almost surely not done yet - the Phils' salary is now extremely top-heavy.

If I were GM, I would consider cutting Ibanez, even though he is a relatively solid player, and put Mayberry, Brown and Francisco in a three-man platoon. The team has got to find out, once and for all, if any of these three can play everyday at a high level. On the other hand, if they're not prepared to do this, then they absolutely must look into a solid hitting right-handed outfielder to replace Werth. And where are they going to get the bucks to do this?

Nobody saw that coming I daresay

Dimnos Yeah. Kind of sucks but I like it better than him going to the Yanks.

WhiteRat Twins trade JJ Hardy and Brendan Harris to the Orioles for minor league pitching help. I liked Hardy but it seemed like he was injured every other week. His trade now leaves an opening for Japanese sensation Tsyuoshi Nishioka, who the Twins recently won exclusive bidding rights for. Nishioka hit .346 last year in the Japan Pacific League and Twins fans are already calling him "Baby Ichiro". We'll see if he turns out to be a fraction of what Ichiro is.

Colonel Flagg Jayson Werth is a very rich man.

I'm not too fussed, actually. I just hope Ruben has a plan - after all, he know this would probably happen. The idea of a Mayberry/Brown platoon in right doesn't seem viable to me; maybe they could platoon Mayberry and Ibaņez, and play Brown everyday in right.

10,000 Volt Ghost I didn't know the Giants moved to San Francisco from New York.

Colonel Flagg Congrats to the Giants. Proof that good pitching beats good hitting.

Unfortunately now I have to listen to my brother brag about how the Giants are the champions.

Colonel Flagg Looking good for Game 3 so far. Gives them some hope...

Colonel Flagg Not their year. Good thing too, Texas looks like the juggernaut, BEYATCH!

Even so, that was ball 4, God DAMN YOU!!!!

Babs This very far from being current but I thought you all would get a kick out of it.

Pentegarn Too bad about the Phillies. I wanted to see them go to the World Series again. If for nothing else so I could hear Nick McIlwain bellow "THEY DID IT!"
Oct 23rd, 2010 10:28 PM
Colonel Flagg I was expecting the Yanks to take game 6 so they could be humilited by Cliff Lee in game 7.

This works too.

Pentegarn I am surprised, but since I hate the Yankees I am also glad

The shame about Bill Buckner is that the error is all most people remember about him. He had a hell of a career, nearly Hall-of-Fame numbers in some categories.
Agreed he had a great career, I think he played like 20 years and it was horrible how he was vilified considering they had other chances to win the series and didn't.

So what happened is Joyce screwed up the call on out 27 and called the runner safe when clearly he was out.

Joyce owned what he did, and did so in a tearful manner. Galarraga handled it with class. He accepted the apology, accepted these things happened, and moved on. Personally I think a little blame falls to him, but the majority of it belongs to Selig.

I think Selig is the real villain here because:

1) he should reverse that call, and he did not. Galarraga has every right to be pissed at Selig (and hopefully is). In this way, Selig cost Galarraga a perfect game.

2) He should never have refused to implement instant replay more fully, especially for calls like this. Selig's desire to keep the human element in the game merely inserts the human error into the game (and while I am on Selig, he's a hypocrite, he wants the human element but turns a blind eye to steroids because it was saving baseball with the HR race it created) In this way also, Selig cost Galarraga a perfect game
I heard a funny quote about this the other day. Someone (a stand up comedian unless i am mistaken) mentioned they won't invoke instant replay because it removes the human element from the game and ruin it's purity.

Then he said, yes because steroids, birth control, the morning after pill () are a pure part of the sport.

The Doctor Infante is playing second tonight, and they are up 1 - 0 early on. Seriously 4 errors over three games and it could have easily been 5, they called one a hit in game one they could have gone either way. Hopefully he didnt take a bridge home yesterday after the game.

The Doctor How about good ole Brooks Conrad, not suprised if the Braves fans lynched him after the game.

Colonel Flagg Well, doesn't this suck donkey dong.

Good luck, Tony.
