    I hope Broussard scores so Graves gets another ER.
    Does that make me evil?

    It pretty much shows that neither Miley or O'Brien know what's really wrong and have no idea whatsoever as to how to fix it.
    I agree Steel and I agree with M2 and others that Bergolla doesn't need to be here. But he is, and I don't really have a problem with him playing at this point in the season. I guess I'm just trying to find some kind of bright spot to this team and those are far and few between.

    Just curious and this isn't meant to be argumentative, but who would you have playing 2B? With D'Lo gone and Freel hurt, I'm not sure they have any other options.

    Nothing to make a thread explode like a Danny Graves outing.

    If they really wanted to make a statement, Graves would be gone. Go away, Danny, and don't come back.

    2 more runs score. 9-2. Please fire Miley and release Graves as soon as the game is over.

    If I were in charge of this ballclub, D'Angelo Jimenez would be playing Second Base today and would be hitting 7th in the lineup.

    Miley and O'Brien created their own mess, so they really have no excuse.

    Boone strikes out as we finally see the 2nd out of the inning.

    This place has filled up like a high school hallway during a chick fight.

    Boone hasn't exactly been a tough out this year.

    yeah, but I'd guess there is areason: to save their own butts!
    Clueless - incompetent. I'm so afraid this is going to get worse. right now I'm hoping they leave Graves in to the very end of the inning. Does that make me sadistic?
