    This is a mediocre to bad team folks. Last year looking like a tease.

    If we end up having a bad year I think we need to have a serious conversation about getting rid of Hinch.

    Did he say Holt is batting .379? I wish. Colin is getting his ass chewed up again. Let's hope he's just expelling his body of chitty pitching and from here on he's lights out!!! Lol

    $20 tip jar bet?

    I got Astros winning series

    You get Sox who are up 4-0 and get to face our "4-5" staff

    Right, this isn't a good starting rotation and they were banking too much on youngster McCullers.

    McCullers is a stud, but they have to go easy on his arm.

    That's why it wasn't smart to hinge so much on him coming into the season.

    Yeah I agree. He's a mediocre to bad manager. On top of some personnel issues the team continues to make too many dumb mistakes which falls on coaching.

    Right, just rotation filler, even though sadly Fister probably has been one of the better pitchers in the rotation.

    Yea he loves "current" stats

    And Geinke has an era over 5 and a whip over 1.4

    He has ripped us for trading for Giles because his whip is over 1.2

    Can't have it both ways

    At the very least he can admit that he isn't about to contribute

    As McHugh gives up another run....my biggest issue is the organization banking too much on the young arm of McCullers. They didn't have to necessarily get the big blockbuster pitchers on the market but some more proven pitchers were out there then what they have now. Time to give Devenski a turn in the rotation. Mix it up.

    AgReenwith you, I want devinski in the rotation. Let's hope our great manager does not use him tonight

    Agree on Devenski

    I just don't think there was pitching worth going after. Sure I would have loved Price or Greinke, who have both struggled but will be just fine

    But other than that none of them were worth what they got

    We will very likely need to go get another pitcher through trade, but im glad we didn't give out a terrible deal

    Biggest issue very few are talking about is our defense, it's been terrible

    Play defense and don't have so many stupid running mistakes, and we would be ok

    At this stage you are much more annoying than cangrejero. Give it a break.

    I love that you're positive about the team, but you're really clutching at straws now
