    Well, that must make it true then.

    He probably should have bunted in the 8th, too. Not that the outcome would have been any different. I wonder if Pedro's appendectomy is affecting his right handed swing. Or if Gardy got a bit excited...

    Or maybe it says that getting hits in ST ABs don't matter as much as track record and work ethic? I don't think too many future quality MLB players think that getting 10 hits in 23 ST ABs is all you...

    I assume this is a joke. Otherwise, you should check whoever told you that rumor for head injuries.

    Parm, too? Wow. I guess Rob really didn't see what he wanted to see.

    I woulda thought Houston would have claimed Diamond. I guess that means Bartlett is going to make the team as the back up center fielder? Or maybe Parm is gonna do it?

    Ben Revere has positive WAR because his speed gives him huge UZRs for the corner outfield spots. When he slots in to CF, his UZR goes negative. his 3 WAR season in 2012 was almost entirely down to...

    Of course, Laudner had his 74 HR in 2116 PA. Mauer has 3825 PA and 14 more home runs, so no. Even Battey got to his number in 700 fewer PAs. Mayer is not the greatest power hitting catcher if you...

    I'm not sure you read my comment correctly. I was saying there would be no way they'd keep Gibson in the minors to start next year, unless he finished 2013 with a huge flop. Like a 60 inning slog or...
  13. If there were enough innings left for him to work...

    If there were enough innings left for him to work through the initial bombing, I'd be all for it. I'd have been all for having him up since day 1. At this point, it's clear from watching his...

    Then there's no point in bringing him up this year. He won't provide any value, and will burn a year of service time sitting on the bench (since they're going to shut him down at 160). A 2-3 starter...

    It's not cherry picking at all. It's pointing out that his consistency is closely tied to the quality of his opposition. When he's struggled, it's generally been at the hands of better hitting. When...

    No way. He'll be part of the plan for next year's rotation, unless his last 60 innings are terrible.
  17. Gibson won't fix what ails the rotation on his...

    Gibson won't fix what ails the rotation on his own, so what is the point of bringing him up to get bombed for two or three starts? That way he can spend his offseason thinking that he might not be...

    Two outing of 6 innings and two of 7 innings is not a guy kicking on the door to the bigs. It's a guy who's struggling to keep his pitch counts in order against poor hitting teams. I'm not waiting...

    Gibson has been good at AAA, nowhere approaching elite. He's striking out a fair number of hitters and getting a lot of ground balls. In the past two months, he's made 3 starts against teams with...

    Gibson simply has not been consistent. Sure, he's got 3 really great starts in his past 10. On May 8, he threw a shutout. his next start: 3 IP 7 hits and a walk. May 19th, another shutout. Followed...

    I for one am not suggesting Hicks didn't do some hotdog stuff out there. Gardy should have calmly talked to Hicks like an adult. What Gardy did was more resembling a bully. He threw a fit when it...

    Worley hasn't been bad because of luck. He's been back because of location and approach. He's shown a lack of responsibility for his part in the bad games and routinely rolls his eyes at his...

    If you were on the receiving end of that sort of 'correction' you'd be much less likely to trust the manager again. It's shoddy team management, and will only lead to more mistakes by Hicks walking...

    Gardy was way out of line last night. He blew up and threw things and got all red-faced over a simple mistake by a young guy trying to make his mark in the game. Did the showboat glove flip need to...
