    ****ing Ruf, probably shouldn't even be playing in the outfield.

    ****ing Cobb, tends to run in to some bad luck and then simply can't hold it together.

    This club has a lot of issues. More than I think we want to admit.

    Even I'm underwhelmed and my expectations were damn near zero. Never a fan of 'run it back' strategies especially when the team was flawed to begin with.

    If we won on Sunday, we would have nearly the identical record 40 games in as last year. Sure this is one of the most un-pretty stretches the past couple years, but considering all the injuries and players that we've been without to start the year, it looks promising when you consider our schedule the next month and a half.

    We can make up a ton of ground in the coming 6 weeks.

    We are playing our worst ball and New York is the hottest team in baseball. Sometimes you gotta bite the bullet for a few days. All hope is not lost fellas. Relax.

    We are still 22-19 with our easiest part of schedule coming up.

    I understand everyone's frustrations I'm right there with you.

    But I think all of our expectations our sky high whether we realize it or not.

    Otherwise we would not be upset sitting at 22-19, even though we are currently playing like **** against the A quality teams.

    I do think Bart is playing himself under the microscope at this point. Something might/should be done if he doesn't start to show up.

    .192 XBA / .328 XSLG / 46.2 K%

    We need Casali back from concussion protocol.

    Joey is only in the position he is in because Posey prematurely retired.

    In best case scenario he would be backing up BP28, but even then, you don't want his at-bats to suffer so much.

    Based on his production so far he should have still been dominating AAA.

    It's clear to me he's not ready, and FO wants to go further than last year.

    We will need to acquire a position player or two for the bats, but it's evident we need another starting catcher.

    Joey is not the answer (for now).

    Been ugly the last week but fans are unnecessarily freaking out currently. This team should be and is a likely (or at least borderline) playoff team, not a 107 win behemoth or on the same level as the Dodgers.

    Buckle up and enjoy the ride. Things will improve.

    Yeah, I felt like this was a high 80 win team before Opening Day and feel similar now. Everything went right last year until the playoffs; expecting the same is only setting one's self up for a disappointment.

    I don't see another starting catcher in the cards. Maybe another vet around the level of Casali but not a real game changer. It's not ideal for a team with playoff aspirations but I'd like to see Bart given more of a leash. If he's not making significant improvements by the All-Star break, then maybe send him down.

    Willson Contreras would be a great fit for us and make quite the difference with his RH bat. He's in the last year of his contract and Chicago isn't competitive this year. Scott Harris makes this more likely + we likely need a catcher if we want to do anything this year. Giving Joey another 40 games is fine, he just doesn't seem ready at all for the MLB and his performance reflects that.

    It's fair to say Joey's been rushed in his young career.

    If FO was going to bring in another Casali like catcher, it wouldn't really be worth it. They would be better off keeping Joey where he is and struggle the rest of the year.

    Contereras wouldn't cost a ton for what he offers us.

    .406 XWOBA
    .281 XBA
    .550 XSLG

    He strikes out about 30% less than Bart .The performance is night and day between the two.
