  1. Ok, I dont necessarily agree, but I can understand where you are coming from.
  2. You want to ride the hot hand yet you say bench Pierre, who has actually been hitting for the past two weeks? Don't get me wrong, Pierre sucks. But he actually does give us a better chance to win than Dunn right now.
  3. I'm liking Logan Morrison more and more.
  4. QUOTE (NorthSideSox72 @ Jun 3, 2011 -> 02:11 PM) I assume your YAY is sarcastic? Dunn needs to hit his way out of this slump, sitting on the bench after an off day isn't going to help anything. And how will looking completely lost vs a lefty help? It's gotten past the point of letting him play through the slump, plain and simple. We need to win ball games now, and until he fixes his approach and starts hitting the ball, he can't be playing everyday, and especially not vs lefties. I'm not saying outright bench, but no more blind faith that he will snap out of it eventually.
  5. It was a bang bang play, and it obviously wasn't malicious at all. Should Scott have probably been going feet first to open part? Probably. But Posey was in an awkward position, and when he turned, he did seem to block most of the plate. It is unfortunate what happened, but you cant fault Cousins at all. He did what he thought he had to to score the go ahead run on a bang bang play. If anything, I give cousins credit for playing hard and doing whatever he thought he had to do to score.
  6. Gotta bring back the grinder rules. This all in stuff sucks.
  7. It would be so much more encouraging if those slumps took place at different parts of the season. Right now those stats seem to back up the assumption of him being out of shape and having no passion for the game, IMO. Dunn will almost undoubtedly improve, you gotta really try to keep up his level of suckage. However, the one thing those stats don't account for is bat speed. His bat is so freaking slow and he is having trouble catching up to fastballs in the low 90s. I don't know who has less bat speed, him or Beckham.
  8. A hacking group claims to have hacked psn again and taken info from around a million users. And if the details from the hackers is correct, it sounds like Sony half-assed it. It just seems to keep getting worse for Sony.
  9. I still think college baseball, at least at the scholarship level, should use the laminated wooden bats. However, these new bats seem to be a step in the right direction. Hopefully we will gradually see more players coming up with better approaches at bat and using all fields, instead of the majority that swing from the heels and try and pull everything.
  10. QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Jun 2, 2011 -> 05:47 PM) I'd be down for Purke if he somehow slides to 47. Sox would obviously have to dish out some cash though (4 to 5M). Which they won't. There is a shot Goodwin could be there too (drafted by Sox before, repped by Boras, kicked out of UNC and now playing for Miami Dade CC). From everything I've read, it sounds like we shouldn't touch Purke with a 100 foot pole. I read a recent scouting report saying his fastball has dropped 4-5 mph since HS and he tires real fast. There are some serious injury concerns with him too. Couple that with his asking price, I have a feeling he will fall a lot and wind up returning to TCU.
  11. QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Jun 2, 2011 -> 03:12 PM) It doesn't matter for a second where they are ranked. The Sox in 2000 had the top ranked farm team in the country... How'd that work out? The Royals have had tons of prospects in recent years, very few of them have come close to their hype. It still doesn't change the fact that the Royals currently have the best farm system in baseball. Will the prospects pan out or not? No one knows. For all we know the Rays current farm system will wind up busting, and the White Sox system is gonna shock everyone. Unlikely, yes. But no one can predict the success of prospects. But what we do know is that the Royals current system is f***ing stacked.
  12. QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Jun 2, 2011 -> 02:30 PM) Isn't that really the only question? Trying to predict which prospects succeed and which fail is like trying to pick the winning numbers for the lottery.
  13. I think the Royals whole top 10 or close to is in most top 50 prospect lists. That's unheard of! Whether they pan out or not isn't the question. They easily have the best farm system in baseball right now.
  14. QUOTE (The Baconator @ Jun 2, 2011 -> 08:50 AM) With so many people clamoring that moving Beckham around would hurt his bat (not to say that you are one of them, I don't know), how can it be a good idea to move Lillibridge to three positions each week? I don't see the logic behind some arguing that moving Beckham away from 2B would destroy him at the plate, yet having Lillibridge playing as a full-time player with no full-time position is a good idea. Any player who consistently let's his fielding affect his hitting, or vica versa, is too weak mentally to be in the Majors.
  15. QUOTE (That funky motion @ Jun 2, 2011 -> 01:01 PM) Frank has become a different person with the media now. If he was like this back in the day, who knows what kind of a household name, he would have been. This.
