They had their chances. What is it about Latos? That’s 2 starts in a row he has gotten us, and he came in coming off of two brutal starts. Glad JJ didn’t get the loss. Once again, losing the first game of the series. Must stop doing that. Particularly against the Padres, and especially on a night where you could have gained on everyone.
Of the pitchers, it’s JJ who’s called on to be the pinchrunner. I’m sure if he had not been pitching, he would have been running for Anderson. As it was, the others guys are probably as slow as Anderson and not worth bringing in.
The Schafer surgery doesn’t scare me very much. I am actually a grad student getting my DPT degree, and I feel like this surgery will be pretty mild compared to what others have gone through and been successful. Surgery might have been avoided if maybe he didnt try to gut it out and gotten proper attention earlier.
Right, Taylor. It really doesn’t seem like that big a deal. Actually, the fact that he needs surgery makes me feel better about his season. The kid was really hurt; his problems didn’t stem from a lack of talent or so much from an insufficient amount of time in the minors. He may not be Grady Sizemore, but he’s going to be good player.
Great line, Bub. Yeah, people – my faith is absolutely shaken at this point. I realize that people have been saying the season is over since back in May, but this really feels like the team is careening off the tracks (although, as I write this, in the back of my head I’m thinking – but if we win Thursday and then sweep the Phillies, we’re back in the thick of this thing!). But, I’m not feeling it too strongly right now. Chipper having fallen off the face of the earth and Prado having come back to earth and no McLouth – %!#!@#!&^!#@!
