    Cause that's what fans do? Didn't realize it was that foreign a concept. There are some people that actually don't bandwagon jump. Some people actually want the major league team to win instead of...

    We're talking about a guy who hits like a pitcher if we're going into the Jeff Mathis realm. Don't remember the last time the Rays had a starter like that and still won.

    Because you can't win in the AL fielding only 7 or 8 hitters every night no matter how good your defense is. Thought watching Ryan Goins for nearly 2 months would have made that crystal clear to...

    Oh, so now when we talk about "farm systems" that includes coaches and scouts now? That's the first I've heard of it. Because I thought that would be under BASEBALL OPERATIONS or ORGANIZATION or...

    Boy, the prospect homerism must be at an all time high. We're criticizing the play of a 21 year old Gold Glove 3rd baseman with an All Star appearance to his name yet we're hyping up and fawning...

    Well, we'll certainly see. They ranked in late 20s last season. Not sure what they've done this season is enough to value them that high.

    Thought they were desperate to win this year too? What did they do this offseason to improve the club? Hell, what has Anthopoulos done in 5 offseasons as a GM via free agency? Sign Melky and...

    No, it's simply called reserving judgment. Great, Barreto has a good year. After you promote Norris and Pompey, whose next? Him and two guys of Tommy John Surgery? Still likely a pretty hefty...

    Right. So why are we praising the guy NOW as if he's some draft savant? Some people are putting the cart ahead of the horse with this guy. Yes, it'd be great to see Sanchez and Norris become top...

    Is this farm system one of the top 3 in the majors or top 5? Because that's what it was before the Marlins and Dickey trades. So I have no idea how the hell its anywhere close to being as healthy...

    After he went through that Moneyball phase, it's possible I suppose.

    Based on his tenure here, he sure didn't seem all that receptive to the advice of his scouts. Hence, things like overruling...
