    Not to fear. Doc Rogers said on Extra Innings yesterday that it takes 2 or 3 days for the results of a team meeting to show up.

    He said it on the radio, I have no choice other than to believe it.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Was this before or after he said that the only problem with Corey Patterson was that he wasn't getting enough playing time?

    (btw, I was wary of opening this thread today, given that I injured three ribs reading Steel's post last night.)

    I think it was in the same segment, if you can believe that.

    I never listen to the guy exept for about 5 minutes last night. If he was serrious, I have no intentions of listening in the future.

    What if he makes that flashy but one-dimensional guy in sales the lead salesperson?

    I think the results of the meeting are self-evident. They obviously decided to go for the #1 draft choice next year and the Nats need to win more to make that possible.

    I would like to see a stat on the W-L record after team meetings. It's probably not very good, and Doc Rodgers is probably right that any positive effect, if there's going to be one, shows up a few days later.

    That's a little bit skewed though. No team has a team meeting when things are going well. So a win-loss record is probably going to be poor.

    I'm sure it'd be great to have your accounting office working in sales, your sales staff working out on the line, your welders working on the new marketing campaign, etc.

    I think some places could probably use a realignment like this.

    Said Dunn, “It wasn’t so much a meeting as an open forum. And everybody had in-put. Things not needed to be accomplished got accomplished. It isn’t like we’re not playing hard. We’re playing hard but just not getting it done. Trying hard doesn’t get it done, apparently. It’s all about production and we’re not doing it.

    “We’re beating ourselves,” added Dunn. “They’re making every single play in the field and we’re making none. Like today. First inning. The ball is hit at me and I should at least knock it down and I can’t even do that.”

    Tell Adam Dunn that he is crazy. No need for open forums. And butchering plays is OK. Just tell the reporter your current OPS.
