Aaron nice enough to hit that ball before it killed a worm.

I for one hope at the end of this season you see PK sign on with someone else....I can hardly stand to watch him anymore...its great he hits some homers but he doesn't do much more than that..IMO

Duque at 96 pitches but in a groove would you pull him now? I will go on record as yes, though I don't think Ozzie will.

I think KW's activity at the trade deadline trying to acquire someone like Huff pretty much guaranteed that PK isn't in our plans next season.

Cotts should definitely be in.

Crede with his uber long swing K's.

 

I'm gonna say El Duque shouldn't pitch this inning so I'm not accused of 2nd guessing.

Crede might want to see a doctor for that whiplash he might have suffered on that swing.

I think the Carlos Lee trade also pretty much guarantees that...KW has to see how many players he got because he dumped Lee's Salary.

Walker is rather nasty. Not sure why he was yanked from their rotation.

And .042 overall.

 

Found that he is hitting .368 with a runner on 3rd and less than 2 outs.

 

But .145 with runners in scoring position. Awful.

He definitely hits better w/ runners on 2nd AND 3rd, but w/ just a runner on 3rd it's pretty pathetic. The pitcher's are probably not throwing him anything to hit in that situation, butr he's still swinging away.

I just remember him not being able to get out any lefties last season when I watched him pitch.

That was a nice corpseball sequence to Crede. 3-0 and he swings at a pitch on the outside corner to barely knick it. Next pitch he takes on the outside corner. Then swings a a slider in the dirt on the outside.

 

 

Swing a a 3-0 pitch if its something you can murder. Not that you barely knick the outside fastball.

I let El Duque out there but with a very short leash...

 

If he gives up a long ball, worst case is it becomes 5-3. If anyone gets on base, he should come out. We're not facing the "heart" of their order this inning. He might as well get the chance to win it, just in case someone does something next half inning.

Duque's still in. When is Ozzie going to actually try and save a pitcher's arm for the stretch run?

Hopefully...when we actually clinch the division.

.245 with RISP

.145 with RISP and 2 outs.

 

Close and Late Paul is

.340 .426 .585 1.011

 

He had a horrible month and a half with RISP, but has been pretty good since it.

 

He's had an OPS over .900 the past two months.

He is letting his 40 year old pitcher start an inning with 97 pitches. He will be back on the DL before september.

I know, I know. I just think that it's better to be more careful with the starter at this point in the season than to push him to the max. I just wish Ozzie trusted Cotts a little more.

Especially with 3 lefties due up.

I know some will think it's just you and me b****ing.....but I really think it's ridiculous how Ozzie has been handling the pitching lately.

Ozzie's said a couple times that he always likes to give his starters a chance to earn the win if the ballgame is close. I think that's why Duque isn't out yet.

 

Guy on 1st...now I take him out.
