Mather and Vitters again. GEEZ! Is it raining again, too?

lol i guess people are going to complain about the lineup until the last day of the season. he could be drawing names out of a hat for all i care.

Yeah, we need to let the Colvin/DJ for Stewart trade go. It was a low risk gamble that still has a SLIGHT chance of panning out if the Cubs sign Stewart for little money and see what happens with his “recovery”. It may be worth keeping him in the stable since our only in-house option is the not-ready-for-prime-time Vitters. But at least we now know to send Vitters won’t be next year’s answer at third, which will help make the case for signing Stewart to a small deal?? Depending on how much Hoystein wants to pretend we can challenge next season (ha), maybe they’ll sign Youkilis?

Listach and McKay are serious improvements. and what would you do, you want them to bring in someone else for the players to ignore? If they were running all out instead of checking out the play behind them, this wouldn’t be an issue. Rookie mistakes aren’t going to be solved by a new 3rd base coach.

actually the rule is don’t make the 3rd out at 3rd… if you make the 3rd out trying to get to 2nd big deal you were trying to get into scoring position…

A moot point. Bad is bad and Mather along with quite a few other players should not be brought back next season. A team can only carry so many .200 hitters that don’t even bring stellar defense. At least Valbuena (sounds like he IS returning) brings a good glove for late inning defense. Mather? Why is he valuable again????

who cares??? Name one team that has never made a bad trade because someone got hurt. Every team has those type of trades… Do you think Colvin and DJ would have made that big of a difference?
