Still chuckling over this.

 

It's like a bad movie. So unbelievably bad one cannot help but laugh because somehow this dreck was foisted off on the public.

What, Garvin couldn't manage? Maybe Guardado?

I'm reasonably confident Guardado wouldn't have fared worse.

Two games from the worst record in baseball. Only four teams worse.

The 10th inning was just about as ugly as major league baseball gets.

 

And there's no position player help in sight.

 

Buxton and Sano go on the DL--TWO players--and we're watching LaMarre, Grossman, and Petit.

 

There's an old saying in the Air Force: PPPPP.

 

Prior Planning Prevents P*** Poor Performance.

 

I don't think having 15 position players on the 40 man to start the season was particularly profound prior planning by the front office.  

On the other hand, the FO should know which pitchers need to be removed from the 40 man now. :)

You're saying there's a chance? 

 

We're the number draft pick!

it would almost be worth it to sign up on twitter just to keep an eye on Falvey's and LeVine's twitter feed.

 

I bet their twitter accounts are melting down these last couple of weeks.

My masochism has bounds.

 

 

Which are already being eclipsed by watching the team on the field.

FO should have trusted the instincts about this team big picture at the deadline.

Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong.

I'd like to thanks everyone for attending last nights Game Thread.  I was going to pass out awards last night but after turning on the game in the 10th inning I puked on my key board.  Sorry...

That's a Chief's age crack, idnit?

Now that you mention it, maybe you COULD tell us about the Jonestown flood of 1889. Or, are some memories just to painful?

Now I know where I remember you from, your that guy who was coming through our town with the asphalt truck and had some leftover black top from another job. I been looking for you for three years!
