    It’s just so obvious that it makes me second guess myself, like hey, maybe this organization has a plan I don’t see, same with the non trades and what not. Then I look at our record the past 5 years, the mishandling of every pitching prospect, and the unforgiveable, franchise killing Chapman trade and I’m reminded, nope, it is that obvious. The decision makers are just awful at what they do.

    I see a Lenny Harris type of career in store for him. Utility INF/OF and bat off the bench.
    Dilson isn’t that versatile defensively. So far, my sense is he’s a regular ok player with good power. That’s the one thing I see potentially above average.

    He may go all EE on us later, but I don’t see a stand-out player there. Wouldn’t be disappointed if he goes in a trade.

    This team is hard to watch right now. It's like we turned back the clock to early May.

    Thom's erection from that Garrett-Baez confrontation earlier this season has lasted more than 4 hours. He needs to seek medical attention.

    Harris played a lot of positions (1B, 2B, 3B, OF) at an average to below average level. I see Herrera as potentially doing the same thing (2B & LF so far, possibly 1B & 3B down the road). I think Herrera does have more power, but I don't know if he has enough ability to stick as a regular. I still think his future role is as a solid utility player off the bench, either here or somewhere else.

    Hopefully this means Romano to the pen, for the foreseeable future. I'd like to see Reed given a shot as a starter.

    There are days when you just have to turn it off and walk away. This is one of them. #click
