    Hes looking better and better. If he keeps going like this, there will be a lot of crow being eaten on this forum.

    He's looking the same, and he's going to start looking worse. You will be eating the crow, as the team finished up the dog days of August and early September. His 6 IP act isn't going to last, and his "locating my fastball" is going to start being deposited over the OF padded walls.

    It's a little early for gloating, in the early first quarter, after beating the mighty Astros, a team that Notin points out is a suprisingly good baseball team.



    He is second in the league in strike outs. Admit you were wrong and move along.

    If gloating is saying,  "Hes looking better and better. If he keeps going like this, there will be a lot of crow being eaten on this forum.", Then I guess Im gloating. But unfortunately for softserve, thats not gloating.

    gloat  (glt)intr.v. gloat·ed, gloat·ing, gloats To feel or express great, often malicious, pleasure or self-satisfaction

    My statement is hardly malicious or expressing great pleasure. Now, If it does happen (see: "If he keeps going like this") Then yeah, I might gloat a little.

    This is all you need to know about dempster...

    2012 stats

    pitch count    OPS Against

    1-25              .692

    26-50            .601

    51-75            .657

    76 - 100        .743

    101+             .810

     

    Keep his pitch count down, and he can be one of the best #3s in baseball all year.  Farrell seems to understand this.  We have the bullpen for it, and the rest of the rotation can pick up the slack in IPs.

    He once said, "I don't watch the games, nor do I need to watch them to know Ellsbury's a butcher in CF."

    He rarely watches baseball, if ever.

     

    One might think in all those years he spent developing a fascination with Justin Upton as the perfect fit for Boston, he might have noticed Stephen Drew play once in a while and noticed he is a fairly decent defender and more of a line drive hitter than a "slugger."

     

    Or at the very least, he might have noticed Drew batted left handed.  That last one is actually kinda tough to miss...

    Nice numbers, slo, but other numbers might tell a little different story:

    76-100 .374 (26 PA)

    100+    .000  (7 PA)

     

    It looks like he kind of loses it, but the regains if they keep him in the game long enough.

    Obviously, the real issue with the Marlins is that they had a firesale so soon after getting a tax-finded stadium. 

    At the end of the day, there was more politics in the trade than BB.  They signed Reyes and Buerhle in very backloaded deals.  They got one year of each at very cheap prices, then passed the expensive years onto TO. 

    Buerhle gets paid $17M per over the next three years.  That's incredibly expensive.  If he was the only player traded, you'd expect Miami to pick up $21M of his remaining contract.  I just don't see what they got.  For the money paid to Buerhle, they could've signed Sanchez.  They got Reyes for the bargain price of $18.2M, but they already had Escobar.

    The Twins used to be pretty good at building up to top contention, tearing it down, and repeating it again, but they have not been serious contenders in a long time.

    They should've traded Mauer and Morneau already.

    " You will be eating the crow, as the team finished up the dog days of August and early September"

    If indeed that is the case, he'll be sitting next to you while you chug away on your heaping pile of crow that is building up, between your preseason howls to fire Cherry, who has built a very solid and likeable team, to Shane, to Napoli, to Papi, you have been very, very wrong on this team on almost every level. 

    It's still early so things could even out for you, but right now I can't think of a forum poster who was more off on this team than you were in the preseason. 

    Congratulations on being in pole position for the wrongest of the wrong...
