    Indeed.....let's hope Dusty doesn't use that logic for the next series, seeing how it worked so well.

    Like I've said, good pitching is a very cool thing.

    BTW, Dusty is doiing exactly what he should with Bruce. Pencil him in and let him play regardless of the boxscore.

    I would like Dusty to make those few moves he can make, but, still, this is ultimately on Walt and ownership
    I know what you're saying, but there appears to be at least one painfully obvious upgrade within Baker's grasp, sitting there on his 25-man roster.

    Once Dickerson showed he could defend well in CF, there was no reasonable excuse to keep him out of the lineup -- in spot starts at the very least. Yet he is getting zero starts while Taveras careens through bad AB after bad after AB in what must be a slump of historic proportions. In my opinion, that's on Baker.

    Don't get me wrong, that move should be made (I think my views on that have been made clear elsewhere), it's just...once it's made, then what?

    This team's options are limited. They are above .500, I have to give Dusty some credit for that. I wish he had been provided a quiver with better arrows in it.

    Then again, I long ago realized GTs are the very worst place to gather critiques.

    Giving a LOT of leeway on the Taveras comments, too, but bad games like this one bring out a bad vibe. So, at this point lets just let this thread die its painful death and move on.
    I am one of those posters who thought Maloney would have a hard time initially. Still, his performance to date has been short of what I expected. He is averaging one HR every 12.5 batters. Batters are sitting on the waist high fastball in the high 80's. If he is going to be successful, he either needs to work a foot lower or dial it up 5 MPH higher. I'm assuming the former is the only real alternative.

    Yeah, he might be a little better than Bobby Livingston, but not much. Bobby didn't give up quite as many homers, Matt stikes out a few more hitters.

    Nice silver lining for this game, hopefully Burton continues to improve.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
