Burning questions

1. How horrid was that baserunning in the bottom of the 8th. WTF?

2. What do you think of the new guy, Sam Smith?

3. How do you work in Gray for the rest of the year? The guy can play.

4. So tonight Eric, Alan and I voted on the CanAm League "All Entertaining" team. Check out my comment for our team, and then give me your thoughts and corrections.

1. That was atrocious. Simply horrid. I don't know if it's Donuts fault, but I'm inclined to blame him due to his horrid past. My dad was listening on the radio & said that he could tell just by listening on the radio that the guys would be out by a mile.

2. He was shaky. I don't want him out there in the playoffs. But he was decent enough at getting out of jams that we could use him to spell the big guns before the postseason without giving up any chance of winning. He's no Brazaoban.

3. I like the guy. He seems like he hits better than JD, without giving up as much with the bat. I'd use him regularly. I wonder if he's versatile, or if he can only play 3rd. Anyone know?

Here it is
CATCHER:
Sandy DeLeon
Come on, you can't beat this guy for entertainment. HOW MANY OUTS?

1st BASE:
Jon de Vries
Out of position, I know - but he played there once this season so I'll count it. I have had so much fun watching this guy play-- RUN IT OUT!

2nd BASE:
Mike Torres
What could be more fun than heckling the Atlantic League reject, c'mon

SHORTSTOP:
Marcos Agramonte
Another out of position one- so shoot me. I choose him for POSITIVE entertainment reasons- this guy flys around the bags and makes spectacular plays. Too bad he's on Sussex.

3RD BASE:
Andy Dillard
Cmon, everyone HAS to vote for Dilly- although it's pretty fun to watch Zach Strong SUCK @ 3rd

OUTFIELD:
Jason Tuttle
BJ Weed
Garrett Weir

Tuttle, because he's a goddamn oompa loompa.
Weed, becuase he's a damn good player who always hustles.
Weir, because he's a goddamn firecracker.

STARTING PITCHER:
Brad Guy
Hooray, racism!

1. Bag O' Donuts has got to go.
Cordova didn'ty help himself with the la-te-da around second base; everyone in the ballpark knew he was out.
Donuts got no business sending Gray; then he beefs about the call!!. As if the CALL was the problem. We want Frank!, We want Frank!
2. He was fooling noone, I am not impressed; NHC would have lit him up.
3. I like him too; wish he was on the line late in the game, he woulda' got that double.

I'm gonna need some time to put together my " all Entertaining Team"

1. it's amazing how many runners get cut down on the bases. that's something that can kill you in the playoffs. i agree --- we want frank!
2.i thought he looked good after a rough start. he was pitching in pensacola last week so the weather might have been an issue for him early but he was throwing hard and didn't walk guys. i wouldn't start him in the playoffs but he can be used to get guys some rest until then.
3. gray is going to stay right where he is.last i saw, reinenger was back on the disabled list.
when gray was released by the white sox he was playing second base in AA.
4.i'll get back to you but slimslow and richard katz have to umpires.

WHAT'S UP WITH?:

Jeff Brooks, did he get "tweaked" or what?. How come D-Stiff was in?.
He's played better in terms of working at bats but...I don't like him. D-Stiff.

Luis Sabino.

Someone get the boy a flagpole the way he's waving at the ball lately.
Vic: his hands are WAY too low and his first move is UP with the bat... never good.
Did he absolutely blow that double early or what?. Then, he plays it into extra bases!. SNAP OUT OF IT!.

Andrew Wishy.

Tough go right now on the homefront so I hear. Tough shit. Suck it up. Though I really DO feel for the guy.
Did he trip over that invisible object in right again or what?. I thought he was gonna' face-plant into the wall. Hit the ball hard a couple times but still seems snakebit.

Tommy Bag O' Crullers.

M/F please!.
True both Faux Pas' involved guys with speed, and both guys looked to be a goin' on their own anyway; but SOMEONE has to control the baserunning, and Bearclaw ain't gettin' it done.

I've seen more poor swings in at bats where the hitter has the count in his favor. With guys on base and/or in scoring position, these decisions are costly when you choose poorly.
Even B.J. weed was swingin' at fastballs up in his eyes.

Alex Trezza.

If you swinga are gonna' look THAT bad, would ya' please hit the obligatory 2nd inning jack?.

I've attempted to pick on everyone equally; whattya' think?.

Can we see Jimmy Hurst as DH?.

Talk about entertainment value.
I laughed so hard I nearly pissed myself.

DaveCo said...

1) WHAT THE HELL?! That is all....
2) I'd use him in the bullpen or something. I stand by my playoff rotation and he could be good for long relief. Try him again as a starter and see what happens though.
3) START HIM AT THIRD REGULARLY!
4) HA! I'll try my hand too...
DH:
Derrick Gibson
BALCO MAN!

CATCHER:
Sandy DeLeon

Plays for Sussex,leads team with 16 errors.
ENTERTAINEMNT GALORE!! :-p

3RD BASE:
Andy Dillard
Why? Simple...."DILLARD! DILLARD!......MVP! MVP!" ^_^

OUTFIELD:
Jimmy Hurst
BJ Weed
Garrett Weir

Hurst......ummmm,it's Jimmy.
Weed, you need one good player. :-D
Weir,also because he's a "firecracker"

STARTING PITCHER:
Michelle LaPlante (sp?)
"Do I pul myself? I have been a little shakey......eh,I can go three more innings!" :-p

HOME PLATE UMP: Slim-Slow
1st BASE UMPL: Richard Katz
