By the way, I'd have no problem letting BDawk have a spot in the rotation so I don't have to continue doing these annoying things. Not like it matters anymore anyway.

We've already got 2 rookies in the rotation we need a grizzled veteran like yourself to provide some stability.

Goin back to the basics here. Gotta rely on the fundamentals...kind of like rediscovering the base on balls.

Also, why the hell does no one in the MLB forum like capitalism? I feel like every time I venture in there there's another salary cap thread and now the thing is that players are asking for too much in the draft and there needs to be slotting.

The Flyers stars played horribly and they still scored 5 goals and were able to go toe to toe with the Hawks on the road and while playing the Hawks style of game.

Not worried in the least. Fully expect it to be 1-1 after tomorrow if they can get any sort of help from anyone defensively. They'll be pissed.

Yeah but you also had what 3, 4 power plays compared to our zippo ... and besdies the Hawks have shown to play better on the road anyway.

Im fairly confident it shall be 2-0 :p

Refs missed two calls all game that really they had no excuse to miss. One on Richards where he high sticked, should have been put in the box for that, got lucky he stayed out. The second was when the puck went out of play off of a Hawk on the bench right before the 6th goal. The PP's were immediately evened out by that goal.

I give the refs credit though. They only called the blatant calls. If they call that kind of series all series I'll be quite happy. They let them play, for the most part. And that has nothing to do with getting 4 PP's and everything to do with the type of calls that were being called.

GTF is certainly no Ryan Theriot. Ryan Theriot has heart and dedication, hence why he starts. GTF is last years Soriano, except we actually have proof he isn't trying.

Wait. Let me see if I understand what's going on here. We have a series against the Pittsburgh Pirates in which one of the pitching match-ups features Ted Lilly and there's no mention of the generous contributions (http://www.centraliaminefire.com/) he's made to the good people of Centralia, Pennsylvania (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centralia,_Pennsylvania)?

Shameful, GTF.

Soooooo, going into today our outfield as a whole is putting up a line of .296/.361/.523 for a wOBA of .385 which is tops in the majors by a pretty good chunk. Not saying I expect that to last the whole season necessarily, but I am blown away by that. Never would have expected that at this point in the season. :)

And I DEMAND a sweep this series. :mad:

toovey107
05-31-2010, 12:54 PM
Finally Fontenot gets the nod, don't know about him in the 5 hole though. And why is Castro back to the 8th spot .. sure he had a little slump, but he hit some balls hard ... especially for the likes of Theriot? what the **** ever. Also, I'm not the biggest Colvin fan here but the kid should be playing more, especially with the slumping of Byrd and how he has been pretty meh against RHP lately.

It's amazing how Lou complains about not having left handed bats in the lineup and yet he continues to not play the two hot hitting ones he has .... especially with the way Theriot has played.

I just pray Fonty has a big game today.

Theriot benched:



anager Lou Piniella also decided to bench Ryan Theriot. He inserted Mike Fontenot at second base for Monday's game against the Pirates, batting him fifth behind Aramis Ramirez.

Piniella wouldn't call it a "rest" for Theriot.

"Fontenot has had a good month, he's swinging the bat well," Piniella said. "So we'll see how Fontenot does. But, I'm not going to say one way or another ... It could be more than a one-day thing here.

"We're talking about one walk the whole month (for Theriot). That's kind of hard to do. We've talked to him about it. He had one extra-base hit the whole month. We'll see. I like the energy he brings. I like the way he plays baseball. Unfortunately for us, what we need here is offense. We'll see what happens, but I've got to get people in there that are swinging the bat, that's all."

Yeah, a slump is fine, but Theriot's eroding plate discipline is inexcusable. He's been swinging at crap and when you don't have power you just can't afford to do that. And as long as Fontenot keeps up what he's doing it'd be foolish to not put him at 2b.

toovey107
05-31-2010, 01:02 PM

I mean for real, one of the worst hitting months I've ever seen by a "starter".

Not a fan of Fonty hitting 5th, but at least he's in the lineup. I've been asking for that so I really can't complain. I'd like to see Colvin get more PT since Byrd is slumping. Not a fan of Byrd batting 2nd however.

Ya Colvin deserves at least to play once a week or so, hes not even getting that. Byrd and Fukudome both have been fairly crappy over the last 10 days, although I'd guess it'd have to be Byrd because we don't have anyone else who can lead off.

I'll be honest, I don't know defense too well. But at 2B Theriot does have a significantly higher UZR/150 than Fontenot. Maybe the sample sizes are too small though (Theriot - 700 innings, Font - about 1700 innings), but why is this so out of the question?

I'd say sample size has something to do with it. I guess my main problem is that people over assume he would be better than Fontenot when he hasn't played the position in a few years.

I just think it's stupid to hate a baseball player over something he has no control over. I don't think the smart posters on here have overrated Fontenot. To piss on him all the time because of a thread is petty and childish IMHO. If Fontenot said he was going to put up Pedroia like numbers that I can see your angle.

As far as Grabow goes I don't think anyone is blaming him for signing the deal. He took the best deal out there. Grabow isn't as bad as he has shown. That said he's not worth the money. I think it's kind of ironic that you of all people are complaining about that deal when you were worried about all the young guys in the pen and he signs a veteran and you still complain.

This year he is. The difference is at least Ramirez and Lee have shown they are good players and can hit worth a ****.

But Theriot and Fontenot aren't that far off in career stats. Theriot is a little better in OBP, Fontenot has been much better in SLG.

The thing noone talks about, however, is that 86% of Fontenot's career plate appearances have been against righties, so he has an edge there. Over 75% of Theriot's PAs have been against righties, so he is at a disadvanatge there. Fontenot gets an advantageous L/R matchup 86% of the time while Theriot gets one less than 25% of the time. If Theriot got to platoon like Fontenot has, his numbers would be a lot better.

I think we should just platoon them. Theriot has a .784 OPS vs lefties, Fontenot has a .796 OPS vs righties. Fontenot is just blessed to be a lefty and have more chances to face RHP than Theriot does against LHP.
