Mi9ke Scoscia got called out big time here since Torii Hunter said that the team has no spirit, have to think he's got a few more weeks before he finds out he's not irreplacable. Trumbo played 5 different positions in 5 straight games and still can't get into an anemic lineup all the time, despite proven power and a .340 avg this season. Abreu is a cancer on the team, Vernon Wells off in his own world. It's the GM who created a good stat/bad chemistry situation, but Scoscia may take the hit. Pujols is flailing harder than a gaffed marlin, His failure would me catastrophic for the Halos, high comedy for the Cards.
Can't believe anyone would be desperate enough to hire Physioc/Hudler. Hudler is borderline retarded, Physioc as exciting as the lovechild of Jim Nantz and that one female ESPN NBA announcer.
Good assessments on both counts. As Adam said though, they finally put the bullet in Abreu and demoted Walden and promoted Downs to closer. Man, I don't think it's going to be enough, but it's a step in the right direction.
I really thought their rotation would have kept them even to this point, even if the offense scuffled. I guess not. It's crazy; they are behind 9.0 games already. Even if they go on some insane run, they'd pretty much need Texas to play .500 or below ball for a month for them to catch up and I don't see that happening.
A lot of crazy games tonight. That Mets-Rockies game was one. I totally thought the Mets had that sealed up at 6-2 in the fifth and the game ends up being 18-10. Fucking Coors Field. Also Verlander in NYC ends up being a 7-6 slugfest. Cards hang 8 runs on Gallardo in two innings. The M's were totally dead in Toronto but that game gets extended by a throwing error at 8-2/3 innings and the M's end up coming from behind in 10 innings, with their weak-hitting pencil-necked outfielder hitting two dingers in the game for 5 RBIs. It was a rollercoaster ride in both of my fantasy leagues tonight.
