Maybe a plate discipline thing? Does Cairo have more patience vs. a guy like Volquez than Fraizer? I dunno. It's working.

I wasn't complaining. Just pointing out a talking point in light of the trade deadline. Especially with rumors of Choo for young MLBer.

Raises suspicion, albeit only a little bit. And if it's true then idk if I like that trade, Frazier is trickling through ROY discussions finally

I don't think we would do that. Rolen is done after this year so if Frazier leaves we would have to pick someone up in the offseason. I don't wanna see him go for a guy like Choo. Choo is a good player, but if Frazier is leaving I would rather see him go in a package for a bigger player, but I trust Walt.

You want crazy pitcher posts? You should see what this guy The Rage posts about Homer Bailey.

The Rage
07-30-2012, 08:50 PM
I didn't think Leake nor Bailey were that great in their last starts, but the Astros are just so awful, it gives you gems from nothing.

If both struggle in this homestand, might be time for another bullpen session(Leake is well on his way there).

If Mes made contact with the Ump, it is automatic. The suspension will occur
soon. But Mes could appeal, and would continue to play until it was ruled upon.

As long as Mes isnt in the clubhouse drinking beer and eating skyline with cueto, latos, homer and arroyo, i think we will be fine

That was the Red Sox, we are a carbon copy of last years Braves and our problems are the same as their issues. The had their good SP go south late and it exposed their good BP and then their elite closer starting blowing games.

If the starting pitching slips its exposes our middle of the road offense that is vulnerable due to the low OBP and poor RISP just like the Braves. We won 10 in a row but it was against weak teams and we had some major comebacks in there to make the run seem better than we actually played.

Our strengths and weakness are exactly the same as the 2011 Braves. Those Braves had their SP go south and the offense which has the same weakness we have couldn't over come it and the pitchers short starts eroded their strong BP.

We have a good club but its not nearly as good as people here think, we have nothing at the top of the order and a terrible bench. We got here by amazing pitching who are for the most part all pitching over their heads if they come back to earth we could easily get exposed.

I've never once said we're done I have we have the same flaws the Braves had and they didn't get them fixed. Then their SP when was great went south and the poor RISP numbers and low OBP lead to them fading down the stretch.
