    Gives Chapman more rest.

    I was reading this quote by Dusty and had to laugh. If you find that MOST people are half empty, doesn't that by definition make you a "glass is half empty person"?
    hilarious!

    I make that play 99% of the time.

    My daughter makes that play 95% of the time and my 3rd grade son is 50/50 on that play.

    Not sure why he didn't charge it.

    Yeah I do agree, I don't think he deserved to be tossed for what he said. Ump probably had heard enough from his earlier at bat where he showed the ump up a little. It's not an issue, he never puts himself in that situation. Just funny how the first time it happens we lose like this.

    Just one of those weird nights I guess.

    For what it's worth, BP should have never been tossed. That was unbelievable.

    Dude it was a Sept 1st game against the Astros. It was just an error, I don't think he caved under the immense pressure of the situation.

    No need to worry about trusting him in the playoffs. He's not a defensive replacement, he's a utility player. He starts to stay fresh or when someone gets hurt....that doesn't happen in the playoffs. If he makes the roster I would assume it'd be to bunt and pinch run.

    Dude! That ball wasn't even hit hard... As the guy stated earlier, his son could have bare handed it. He choked. It was the bottom of the 9th and the bases were loaded. There was some pressure there. I bet he makes that play blind folded any other time. That wasn't just an error.

    The season isn't over. Everything will be just fine. I just don't see the reason for him to be on the roster anymore. He doesn't really add anything, especially with the call ups.

    Dude!!!!!!!!!!! Take a nap and come back tomorrow. Valdez is basically nil offensively but has been very solid defensively this season. He made an error. Nothing more, nothing less. No need for baseless over analysis.

    Get em tomorrow.

    It's just an error, they happen to everyone.
