    Meh. There's still far better options than Jack Hannahan on the current roster. Would you not agree? One of them is from Germany.

    Well, he's not exactly a novice at hitting, Giambi. Lifetime .923 OPS over 19 seasons. If anyone isn't going to be fooled by Arroyo's stuff, it's Giambi.

    Nice to have Cingrani ready for next year, so a mistake can't be made with Arroyo like it was made with Larkin and Rolen.

    Now the stadium sound guy playing Bro Hymn? We should've swapped sound guys in the Choo-Stubbs deal because theirs seems awesome and ours is putrid.

    Yeah, cause I really want a NL team to design their roster for those occasional games where we need a DH.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    Lutz, Mesoraco both are better options.

    It is like pinch hitting for Josh Hamilton with Juan Castro.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Hey, I'm not sure if anyone brought up the fact that Hannahan is the DH

    No, I don't. Lutz has played like 20 major league games. Robinson is chaff. Izturis is garbage. The organization has chosen for reasons that befuddle me not to go 3 catchers during interleague so we can use Mesoraco or Hanigan as the DH. At best it's a wash between Hannahan and Lutz.

    Every time the team honks a game it's pile on Dusty time. Dusty didn't force Ondrusek to crap his pants last Sunday and Dusty did instruct XP to tap the ball to the pitcher with the bases loaded and no one out.

    Really? I'd say that every MLB team would consider Bronson to be an asset. He's been pretty darned solid this year (and the last several). No reason to think he won't be fine next year too.

    No, I'm not suggesting extending him. But then again, I'm not planning on depending on Cingrani either. I want Leake to fill Bronson's role and Chapman to FINALLY move into the rotation.

    How do you figure?

    Hannahan has a lifetime .668 OPS in 1719 lifetime PAs. This year .594 in little playing time.

    Lutz's OPS is .600 also a small sample. I'm skeptical whether Lutz will ever get 1719 lifetime at bats and would have a .668 OPS if he did.

    There's a time and a place for this remark. Now is not it. Bronson has been solid for the past year and a half, and before that as well, excluding his illness-plagued 2011. No need to roll him under the bus in my opinion, he's paid his dues.

    Any consideration for the fact this guy spent the past two years playing in this stadium? I liked the move. It clearly hasn't panned out, but I thought it was well-reasoned.
    Then again, for many of you, as soon as anything doesn't go perfectly it's an excuse to verbally tar and feather our oft beleaguered manager.

    Well, everyone is entitled to be wrong.

    I don't care how many MLB games Lutz has played. If you think Jack Hannahan is a better offensive option than him, good for you. I strongly disagree. (As I imagine almost everyone else would.)
