    Looks like it's going to be a long day

    The Comier trade is looking worse and worse. I don't think Gernamo would be this bad.

    Although given the lack of options (Johnson, Michalek), I don't mind giving Woo a shot.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    No. But it's a good example of why you never hire both of a MLB player's parents?

    I still say the pitcher has a lot of say over whether a batter is going to be patient.

    There's the pitcher who has just walked the previous two batters, and this batter should be patient enough to let him throw some more balls.

    There's the pitcher who is throwing strike after strike, and being patient is going to lead to a low-pitch 1-2-3 inning.

    The point of being patient is to get a pitcher to walk you, or to get your right pitch, or to wear down the pitcher early. If the pitcher isn't going to walk you, or the right pitch is the first pitch, or the pitcher is going to retire you quickly on called strikes, it's best to go for the pitch you can hit whenever it comes.

    de la Rossa con se Cuervo lines out. End of inning.

    Woo lowers his ERA to 17.00 after giving up yet another run.

    Silence.

    Wayne: "Come on guys, give me a name"

    Another awkward pause, until finally someone meekly says "I heard Kim is available". Then Allen chirps in "He's cheap, let's go for it".

    He can't see that Dunn produces runs in ways that don't always show up on paper.

    He also fails to realize he was a horrible GM
