    Not particularly worried, but that home run pitch was one of the things I was hoping he was working on.

    Yup, Bum, JC, Shark, and Moore are a pretty solid 1 thru 4. And agreed, Shark is capable of throwing the odd gem now and again.

    Yeah, it was. Dude can't help but troll and is even more emboldened by the fact that no fellow mods do a damn thing about it.

    I've learned how to ignore trolls. I just wish this site would actually give a **** and take away mod powers or just ban them outright. It's part of why so many people have left this site or don't post nearly as often anymore.

    It's just stupid. It's smarter to load up on BP depth because somebody always gets injured. Now it's Smith and who knows when he's coming back and instead of resigning Romo or picking up one of the many cheap relievers that are out there we will trade a prospect that would had saved money over the long run with a cheap contract because we refused to spend a little extra. The BP looked better with Melancon but all it takes is one injury to make guys pitch in situations they shouldn't be and we've already got that injury with Smith.

    Yeah, the Smith thing bothers me too. Any results from the second MRI?

    Not quite like that, the ones I banned were hashtags that were being done as a way to actively attack other posters or get around the censors. Such as #FilihokIsPoop or #CussWord. That is what I banned and that's still in effect there. Nothing has changed.

    Here's a refresher on that rule that applies only to the dodger forum.

    If your going down that road then you need to also adress the giants lack of viable starting pitching too. Last year the giants were one of the more fortunatate teams when it came to injuries to their starting rotation. (not the most, that was the cubs by a mile) if there are a pair of even small injuries, who do the giants go to for their 5th starter role? Like Lets say both Cain and Blach have to go on the DL at the start of the season for small injuries. Who's the 5th starter?

    In the Giants defense, they did re-sign Reynolds as well as added Hernandez & Ramirez all of which have major league expierence. I know they don't sound like flashy names, but they are depth options and they usually get lucky with a guy like that every year.

    If Smith misses significant time Osich & Okert are going to need to step up big time.

    I think that's something a lot of people forget is that both Osich and Okert have pretty electric arms. Obviously it's no fun that Smith's elbow is barking but the giants will probably be fine.

    Yeah....you're the one that keeps bringing up Beede as a better rotation option. Not every team needs (or has the budget) for 10+ injury prone, mediocre, veteran SP's to choose from.

    Sound like another Tommy John for Smith. Probably done for the year but a chance for someone else to step up. Any way you look at it, not good for the pen.

    And I'm not backing down from that. He likely will be a better pitcher than Cain or Blach in the Short or Long run. (Not that I'm comparing him career wise to Cain that's a different story). But you guys keep insisting that he's not in play. So I'll have to take your word for it.
    Yeah, but a team should have more than 1 since the AVERAGE team used 11 starters last year I believe.
    http://m.mlb.com/news/article/215313...for-mlb-teams/
    Last season marked the fourth in a row in which no team got through 162 games using six or fewer starters. Only the postseason-bound Blue Jays went with seven, and on the other end of the spectrum, the rebuilding Braves trotted out 16 pitchers. Overall, big league clubs averaged 11.1
    http://m.mlb.com/news/article/163495...itching-depth/
    Let's go back to 1998, the year when MLB expanded to 30 clubs. That provides a sample of 18 seasons. Over that time, the greatest number of teams (107) used 10 starters, with an overall average of 10.3. Meanwhile, just 14 teams -- or not even one per year -- needed six starters or fewer. The last to do so was the 2013 Tigers.
