    Rodriguez being a douche is keeping some heat off Hoskins. what the fuck was that last night? how does a major leaguer miss that throw?  Hoskins is killing this team.  good news is our idiot manager keeps him in the 1 hole...so you know the guy  hitting less than .150 since the all-star break is getting the most at-bats on the team.  #analytics
    that hoskins error reminded me of ryan howard, aka seal hands

    this franchise is a disgrace.  looks like they're proving me correct per usual as they're going to end up with another losing record season.

    wasn't their over under between 90-92?

    good to see they're staying consistent and failing to meet all expectations

    I thought 86 was a pretty safe bet coming in.  I bought the hype which was dumb. What was the total wins for vegas?

    I think this was a really disappointing season and I don't think the outlook is all that great.  They have 4 good players.  Juggs calls them underachieving, I am not so sure.  I also don't know that there is a big contract that could patch it up in Rendon or Cole (DON'T GO NEAR HIM, HE'S ALL OURS).  Need more than 1 or two players and need Kingery and Hoskins to continue developing. 

    Segura is who he has always been.  He's fine. McCutchen..every team has players get hurt.  It's just not a very good baseball team, stating the obvious.  And they have probably the 2nd most annoying manager in baseball.

    agree.  4 good players, one of who is being blocked at his natural position of 2b by a guy who sucks.

    if you have no talent it's impossible to underachieve.  their roster is flat out garbage

    I think segura stinks.  mccutchen was off to a good start but that contract was stupid (just like the arrieta contract).  bunch of idiots running this franchise

    let's wait to see.  86 is within reach.  14-9 gets them there.  if i had to guess i say they won't though.  86 isn't getting them a wild card anyways.

    and which manager is more annoying than Kapler?
  • The FixerThe Fixer Posts: 12,825
    rendon would be a great fit but he's not as good as machado, which is why they should have signed both manny and harper this past offseason.  they'll overpay multiple players this offseason because they can't develop talent.  inevitably it will end the same way it always does, with this team falling flat on their face

    oh well, at least the sixers season starts soon

    Point being, I thought this was a potential playoff team coming in and had a chance to make noise.

    Joe Maddon.  He's the fucking worst

    I pretty much agree. I like McCutchen but I didn't like that contract at the time either.

    I don't disagree and it's only one year, a contract year at that, but Rendon has lapped him in WAR this year.

    once they started playing him in center (because odubel is horrendous) it was inevitable he was going to get hurt.

    this franchise really is the worst.  hopefully middleton creates a new fan poll in the newspaper to figure out which players to sign this offseason.  what a fucking joke

    website says the Foundry at the Fillmore.  Not sure if that's a smaller stage within the Fillmore.  Fillmore is a pretty large venue compared to rest of the tour stops.  Hitting the show in Charlottesville -- never been to that venue but from what I see online it looks awesomely small.  Love shows at the tiny little shithole bar type spots

    You into them?  I cannot stop playing the album

    yes that's inside the fillmore. Smaller venue upstairs.

    I listened to some of the songs he posted on the thread. Sounded decent. I only know those songs though

    Joe Maddon.  He's the fucking worst
    :lol:
    I tend to agree on these two, but 'my power comes from sunbathing my nuts' has to take top spot.  At least Maddon has won.  All whackadoodle does is act strange and lift weights.

    Can we do 1 and 1a. then?  At least Kapler talks about wanting everyone's opinion and input and learning and all that jazz.  Joe Maddon is by far the smartest guy in any room he's ever been in.

    But yeah, Kapler is a whackadoodle for sure.

    89.5 was their O/U

    Tons of injuries and shit but I don’t see how this isn’t an underachieving team. Very disappointing.

    I thought 86 was a pretty safe bet coming in.  I bought the hype which was dumb. What was the total wins for vegas?

    I think this was a really disappointing season and I don't think the outlook is all that great.  They have 4 good players.  Juggs calls them underachieving, I am not so sure.  I also don't know that there is a big contract that could patch it up in Rendon or Cole (DON'T GO NEAR HIM, HE'S ALL OURS).  Need more than 1 or two players and need Kingery and Hoskins to continue developing. 

    Segura is who he has always been.  He's fine. McCutchen..every team has players get hurt.  It's just not a very good baseball team, stating the obvious.  And they have probably the 2nd most annoying manager in baseball.

    89.5 was their O/U

    Tons of injuries and shit but I don’t see how this isn’t an underachieving team. Very disappointing. 
    Because everyone is playing to who they are.  No one is really having a down season, are they?

    I think there's a difference between expectations and what's realistic. Based on expectations they've grossly underachieved, but the realities of this roster I'd say they're going to win more game than they should. Rotation is Nola then nobody. Bullpen is nobody then nobody at this point - their 9th best reliever is their "setup man" right now (I use that term very, very loosely). The bench was always short and shallow re: depth from the beginning. And the lineup outside of Kingery/Hoskins/Harper/Realmuto is nothing impressive when supported by the rest of this lineup. I think to be disappointed with this team as it stands right now is kind of irrational to be honest.
