    Why is Stanton still here?

    Another great job of keeping us in the game by Mike Stanton... Why is he still here? Cut your losses he's not got "it" anymore. Nows the time we ought to be seeing what Marcus MacBeth and the rest of the Louisville pen has to offer the big club. The longer you keep deadwood like Stanton to further he'll drag the team down.

    Good. Maybe he'll go on the dl. I want McBeth up here now. We need some more good arms. Look at Arizona. Their slow guys still throw 92-93. Our slow guys throw like 88.

    I saw that Majewski threw 90 mph today; too bad he doesn't have an out pitch.Velocity does not help if you can't locate your pitches.

    It sometimes does. Ask Randy Johnson. At times he couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat. He still had a cannon.

    He also had several other effective pitches he could get you out with.

    I didnt think majewski threw bad at all. Both hits were weak. Much rather have had him stay in then stanton.
