I'm annoyed at Pineda. To me, the 1st game turned on two stupid pitches and the 1st was his.


1) That Pineda gave Encarnacion a slider anywhere near him that he could reach with Pennington sitting in the on-deck circle. Pennington is awful, his HR in the nightcap notwithstanding.


2) The 2nd straight FB that Betances gave Bautista after he nearly hit a HR down the LF line on the fastball right before it. 


You could argue that both were location errors, and that's true; they were, but they were also example of bad pitch selection. The first in giving Encarnacion anything he could hit, and the 2nd was an gross error in pitch selection, especially after the loud foul the pitch before.


As for the 2nd game, I expected Nova to get hit, and when Didi misplayed the grounder that allowed the 1st run to score, I expected Nova to give up, and he did. At this point, he has no real confidence, in spite of what he says to the media after the game.




at the end of the day, it's all about location. but in betances case, maybe it's case of over thinking on his or mccann's part. bautista's on the fastball so let's throw a curve but wait that's too obvious, he knows we're going curve so let's throw another fastball. bad location oops ... clearly unless he hangs it, the curve isn't leaving the yard. but we see this **** happen all the time ...


manning telling jennings NOT to score. huh???


pete carroll having wilson throw the football instead of giving it marshawn lynch for the sure super bowl win. fastball instead of curve. can't make this stuff up ...






Add Caroll kicking an onsides/pooch kick in overtime. Sometimes these geniuses outthink themselves.




and what was gardner "thinking" when he got doubled up on mccann's fly to the wall in the 7th.





That's the problem, he wasn't thinking. If that ball hits off the wall he could have walked home standing on second base. There have been a lot of physical errors lately, like 3 last night, but a lot of brain farts as well.

That was a huge brainfart. On a deep fly like that he either walks home from second if the ball is not caught or he should be thinking of tagging up to advance after the catch. What he was doing halfway to 3rd is a mystery that rivals the riddle of the Sphinx.

Watching the replay he was more like 3/4 of the way to third which is inexcusable. Once again, Gardner has speed but his baserunning abilities are highly questionable. BTW is brain fart one word or two?Laughing

I've lost all confidence in Nova.




trade his ass in the offseason.




Unfortunately, he has just about zero trade value right now. I'd keep him as rotation depth, plug him in at some point, hope he pitches well, and then try to trade him to a near-contender.




qwik, I remember you saying something about retireing this year. Did you? If you did, congrats. Hope you enjoy a long happy retirement.




Yes, I did. 




Congratulations on your retirement, Qwik, from another retiree!  I have no doubt it is well-deserved.  Enjoy, man!




rumor has is that after seeing the daily 'To Do List' from Mrs. Qwik our friend is job hunting again....

We need a crusty old fart in charge to eliminate the brain fartz... Larry Bowa, anyone????
