  1. I think that's a little harsh to Rush2112. Bench coach forum is suppose to be 1 line opinions. Just because you disagree with it doesn't mean he's in the wrong. He's expressing his opinion which the original posters are asking for. I agree with the quality over quantity - to an extent. There's only so much you can say at a certain point. The posts that i appreciate the most are the ones that point something out that i would've otherwised missed. Fascinating stats from the telecasts, interesting splits, interesting interviews, etc. Then the posts that get a chuckle are always well liked. Don't take it too seriously - suppose to be fun. I think what Bat is getting at is: don't spam just to get your count up.
  2. Craig Kimbrel's line had me spinning for a minute. 1 inning and 4 strikeouts. I suppose a guy got on base after a pass ball strikeout.
  3. Defintely a buy low. Don't know whether he'll turn it around right away but i believe in his ability. One of the best when things are going right.
  4. Year of the blister rolls along. No one is safe.
  5. When Matt Barnes gets out of the doghouse, he's gonna be a pretty good late inning guy.
  6. The hog rolls on. 7 HR's in his last 11 games for Justin Bour. Going to wind up my best pick-up of the year.
  7. Mookie with 2 great catches in the 8th. What a ballplayer.
  8. I agree he probably wouldn't have caught it, but it was close enough for him to potentially catch it. Umps not going to sit there and debate whether he made an effort to catch it - call him out and move on. I think New York would've agreed either way, not going to overturn an umpires judgement call.
  9. Pedro Baez on for a non-hold situation.
  10. Rule 6.01(e) When there is spectator interference with any thrown or batted ball, the ball shall be dead at the moment of interference and the umpire shall impose such penalties as in his opinion will nullify the act of interference. No interference shall be allowed when a fielder reaches over a fence, railing, rope or into a stand to catch a ball. He does so at his own risk. However, should a spectator reach out on the playing field side of such fence, railing or rope, and plainly prevent the fielder from catching the ball, then the batsman should be called out for the spectator’s interference. In my opinion he was close enough to it to potentially catch it, so batters out.
  11. Year of the Blister rolls on.
  12. I'd agree with that to an extent. In past years, guys would just be day-to-day for 5 or 6 and team's would rush them back as soon as possible. Now with the 10 day, teams are more inclined to put them on the DL and free up the roster spot. In past years, there have been plenty of guys who are "day to day" for months on end. I'll never forget Ike Davis with the Met's, who was "day to day" and ended up missing the rest of the season.
  13. Too much for Trout? That doesn't exist. Any trade where you're receiving Trout, you win.
  14. the hogs getting hot
  15. This is such a Mets thing. It's like they're looking to DL their stars. Anybody know how long the recovery period is? Can't nail down a time researching. Looks like 3-4 months minimum.
