I just wrote my summer review and lost my whole thing: probably you guys have discussed all this stuff anyway, so I'll just rewrite my opinions:
Workman should be starting and Dempster should be in the pen.
The secondary pitchers and the remaining bp guys who weren't injured saved our bacon.
Gomes ALWAYS gets a hit when you really need it. Until the last three weeks or so, Salty was just the opposite. Lately he's been hitting timely and has put in a huge work load. I like Ells and Victorino on the bases and in the field. I want Ells back, but if not, then I think JB2 gives us the same package.
I hated to lose Iggy but I don't think management ever saw him in the future, so we got a good pitcher and Bogey's coming anyway.
Is Doobie growing up before our eyes?
I don't care if they don't re-up Lester. It's disturbing how he gets lost. He reminds me of Linscecum--no hitter one game and can't throw strikes the next. But Linscecum doesn't get pouty and blame the umps.
Peavey is the Pedey of the Pitchers. Catchy, huh?
How did that despicably fat beer guzzling chicken eating Lackey with sour attitude turn himself into this fit gutsy guy for whom you actually can admire?
Ortiz and Pedey, amazing years and I love to watch Papi go the opposite way...
Our future looks very bright.
I like Naps, his numbers will probably be fine at the end of the year, but his fades are disturbing--will he be there in the playoffs? Nice to be back, and I can't wait for the Dodgers...
