The end of the Willie Harris Era? I wonder if he will head down to Louisville or try to hook up with another team? If he goes to AAA there is probably a good chance he is back. Rolen is going to be on the DL at some point in time. And Dusty will drive down to get him if needed.

Hopefully, he doesn't bring the same (0-10) bat he was using in Dayton.

I like Cairo because of the last two seasons.

But I'm afraid that he's gonna turn pumpkin on us this year.

I'd rather have DeWitt.

DirtyBaker
05-07-2012, 05:41 PM
Cairo has impressed me with his versatility and ability to get hits when it counts. He at least deserves a spot on the bench despite poor numbers in rehab.

I believe he is still more useful than Valdez.

Estrada pitching from the stretch.
Cozart making him work.
9-pitch at-bat end with a fly ball to the warning track in left. Nice AB.
Stubbs sends a line drive that is caught in center.
Votto sends one to the warning track in right.

3 hard hit balls amount to nothing.

There's no such thing as pressure when it comes to Arroyo.

If we could get to these playoffs, we've got the starting pitching and relief pitching to win it all. Bronson as a #3 Starter in the playoffs, after the Ace Cueto and #2 Latos, gives this team a chance to go all the way.

Do they have the consistent offense and timely hitting? Managing? Dusty was at the helm of a team up 3-2 in the World Series and 6-1 in the 6th inning of game six....brought in a strange choice for relief....blew game 6...then lost game 7.

Also was up 3-1 with the Cubs and was leading (8-1?) when Bartman interfered in the (8th).....couldn't pull his team together and they blew the huge lead and lost next two to lose series.

His leadership and Dustyball was just painful against the Phillies....who lost 4-2 in the next round to a team that worked the count every batter.

Bronson has allowed only 8 runs in his last five starts. If he continues to pitch like this, he's definitely worthy of a #3 spot in the rotation. Besides, in a 7-game series, with all the off days, he'd likely only pitch one time anyway, unless the series goes the distance. We have a lot of pitching options. More than most teams have.

His leadership and Dustyball was just painful against the Phillies....who lost 4-2 in the next round to a team that worked the count every batter.While I'm of the Edgar Martinez school of Batting, where you work every count of every at-bat in order to both wear down Starting and Relief Pitching, but to "set up" later at-bats by doing so, I could see Dusty's choice of swinging early in the count because you're likely to get strikes. However, if you don't make a pitcher throw all of his stuff, then it's much easier for him to get you out in later at-bats with other pitches than had you worked the count every at-bat.

Dusty is generally poor as a Manager in my opinion, and I've never liked his philosophy of Managing nor those whom he learned it from.

But, I do think we have the pitching to overcome Dusty and the poorer hitting. Again, the biggest Albatross is the automatic-out-Rolen, who bats in a prime position too often.

I like out pitching....but it's not a staff I would expect to win in the postseason. Playoff teams would work the crap out of Cueto and Latos....they both might prevail to the bullpen....but that's my guess.

And playoff pitchers will throw first pitches that look like creampuffs but aren't and too many 10 or less pitch innings would be my bet.

I've been wrong before....but this is my feeling and man that's a long ways away!

That's because he's often placed in that position.To give credit where credit is due, this is where Scott Rolen has been at his best.

Here are his numbers:

BA=.353; OBP=.400; SLG=.765; OPS=1.165

Sorry not trying to start anything with you guess I am just to much of a positive thinker.

No problem. I generally take a "negative" tude with some of Dustyism going on with lineups, pitching ete ete.

This is a long season with many different phases. Sorta like being married :lol:

For a player doing well now, they may be sucking a bit by June 29th. For a player struggling now, they may be rocking it by June 29th. Then by the end of the season it is all around again.

But some players like Rolen drive me nuts. Unlike Arroyo who deserves and should have a spot in the rotation(though I think it should be the 4/5th role), Rolen can improve and still be bad. It represents how far he has fallen as a player. I don't think he is really healthy and just wants one last gasp at the WS.

Good pitchers do what Arroyo just did there. They know exactly when the ump has a large strike zone and the pitches that can be used to exploit it.

Unfortunately, followed up by a single. It seems Arroyo is gonna get the cane around the neck.

Ondrusek throwing 97 MPH cuts through the heart of the Brewers lineup like a steak knife through hot butter. If Chapman to the rotation is inevitable, I can't help but wonder if Ondrusek would work at closer while Marshall moves back into his original power lefty role.

Ondrusek pitching at 96-97 is really impressive. I've seen him hit that before, but mostly while working around 92-93. That guy was throwing some smoke, with movement.

It's actually his best pitch, according to scouts. It's definitely the weapon that racked up that fine ERA last year, and that which gives him closer viability.
