    Curt Says:

    Neither is our starting pitching

    Bubdylan Says:

    #101: this.

    And if we do snag a WC spot and spend up Hudson in a one-game play off, then we get to face someone’s Ace, #2, and #3 with some collection of Hanson, Jurrjens, Sheets, and Minor. That might be the worst post-season pitching line-up I’ve ever seen (again, subtracting Hudson, who wouldn’t be available at the top).

    It’s a shame. With Beachy and Vizcaino, we’d have enough to back up a Bourn-led line-up. But next year, when they come back, no Bourn and no Chipper. I’m afraid this team is doomed to flirt with greatness and never get there.

    I would like to propose that we give up Delgado, Minor and a couple more prospects (as many as it takes) to go after Felix Hernandez. Don’t you think that the M’s could be persuaded that they are sellers? Also, I think he is signed through 2014, so we would get two seasons after this one before we had to worry about resigning.

    Am I crazy? Could we even put together a package that would make the M’s interested? Should we?

    @ Ham

    ham Says:

    Walker, why you gotta crush a brother’s dream like that? Facts shmacts.

  6. 106
    Walker Says:

    How big is this series. Well with a four game series, the Braves could leave Washington at best one-half game up in first place, or at worst, 7 ½ games back. Thats a HUGE swing.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Has anybody seen a comprehensive list of the victims of the Aurora shooting?

  8. 108
    Adam Says:

    great start. ugh.

  9. 109
    Ham Says:

    Oh dear . . .

  10. 110
    Curt Says:

    Yeah, team

  11. 111
    Curt Says:

    Bub, I don’t think they have identified any if not all of the victims yet.

  12. 112
    Bubdylan Says:

    Tommy’s got a lot of wins for a guy with a 4 and a quarter ERA.

  13. 113
    Curt Says:

    I feel like I am stealing that $20

  14. 114
    Adam Says:

    How much longer is Simmons out for?

  15. 115
    Curt Says:

    Of course they have 2 on and 2 outs and get Morse. We get Janish and Hanson

  16. 116
    Bubdylan Says:

    #114, why? Can he pitch?

  17. 117
    Curt Says:

    Guess it doesn’t matter if it is Janish and Hanson or Chipper and Freeman. Suck

  18. 118
    Bubdylan Says:

    It’s weird how much frustration I feel towards a team that’s 8-2 over it’s last ten games.

  19. 119
    Adam Says:

    We’re 0-8 with RISP this game and it’s only the 4th inning.

  20. 120
    Steve Says:

    @118 – because this is a pretty damn big series. And to give up 3 in the first and squander a bunch of opportunities afterward. Frustrating as hell so far.

  21. 121
    Curt Says:

    And good night

  22. 122
    Walker Says:

    We have inconsistent starters and 3 black holes in the lineup. Go get Dempster or Grienke now and Andrelton please hurry.

  23. 123
    Walker Says:

    Never say die

  24. 124
    Adam Says:

    And in the 9th we have Uggla, Janish, and a pinch hitter…at least we came close.

  25. 125
    Bubdylan Says:

    Well… this is something anyway.

    I hate hope.
