That's the thing. Elarton has been pitching very well, but we can't score shit for him. So frustrating. The good news is, didn't the White Sox score five against Affeldt in the first inning in KC when the Royals won 11-7 last Friday?

At this point I blame Baird squarely. I think Glass gives Baird free reign over who comes in within budget. I just don't think Baird knows how to put a team together. Bell can only work with that he is given. Not to let him off the hook either though.

He was actually a good pitcher in the Angels bullpen, and of course the Angels always have one of the top bullpens in the league. A lot of people were surprised they let him go.

Joe Mays is making Lima Time look like Clemens time though. He just doesn't have it. We shouldn't have a hard time getting him to clear waivers, we gotta get somebody in there better than this.

How does Minnesota and Cleveland do it? Oakland? We are relatively close to them in $'s and really I think Glass would up the $'s if the guys we brought in panned out.

We bring guys in...Glas pays them...the guys go bust....Glass loses interest in spending more money

Yeah but Glass forced Baird to spend money because he was sick of people breathing down his neck over revenue sharing money, despite the fact we're still a couple years away from winning the division. Baird had to fly all over God's green earth convincing people to actually sign here, it's amazing he did as well as he did. Just like Paul Byrd, we offered him way more than he accepted from Cleveland. I guarantee you Baird's original plan was not to have Joe Mays in our rotation. Heck if our other starters could stay healthy for any period of time he might not have been in it anyway.

Well what other teams just have players fall in their laps? Baird didn't want to pay Kenny Rogers. Baird didn't want to pay Dye. Baird didn't want to pay Damon, Beltran, White

Instead we get Sweeney, Juan Gone, Benito Pass Me The Needle, Joe Mays


Baird has 2 long term goods going in DeJesus and Mcdougal. Everyone else is weak or old or both.

Ok maybe so. But Dye we could of kept. We could of gone after Bartolo Cologn...not the best but an upgrade none the less. I was for trading Damon for some good pitching. DeJesus is just as good defensivley and probably with the bat. Just not as fast on the bases.

You think Baird didn't want to pay Beltran? Are you nuts? Why wouldn't he? Boras was never going to work with him on that. We offered Paul Byrd the same type of money, actually more total dollars than the Tigers actually gave to Kenny Rogers. You are playing really fast and loose with the facts here.

Splitorff has a point, this team isn't healthy, before spring training we were supposed to have Zack and Twinkie Hernandez pitching. The Offense hasn't mailed it in all the games either, they've been down early and by alot and seem to get some runs in, the pitching just needs tobe there. It doesn't help that our "best" hitter is batting .120 at this point. Hopefully the other teams can keep losing or beating each other.

how about the Greinke before the "arm whisperer" Guy Hansen :Robinson: started comparing Greinke to a "young Roger Clemens" and telling him to work from his fastball.

Almost every young pitcher that comes up gets told "you can't just rely on your fastball, you have to learn how to pitch"

Then we finally land a young guy who actually pitches and Hansen tells him to do just the opposite.

I didn't like Hansen either. But he is gone. Grienke can't even get on the mound. I am sorry but I am not going to put a lot of stock in someone who is perfectly healty yet not pitching. He might be a good #4 or #5 I guess. Maybe. Can't be any worse than he was last year.

I agree with needing the attitude, that was Zack's problem, he wasn't; fully in the game. I really hope this psychologist or whatever has worked on his issues, the guy showed little emotion, hopefully he can come back, if not, just add to the PILE of bust pitchers for this organization.

Way too young and way too talented to just throw away and not give a chance...this guy was a star that went on raw talent in the minors, if he starts listening to coaches and gets his head back in the game, the potential is there. This isn't some young scrub we are relying on.

Way too young and way too talented to just throw away and not give a chance...this guy was a star that went on raw talent in the minors, if he starts listening to coaches and gets his head back in the game, the potential is there. This isn't some young scrub we are relying on.

Solid Outing by Mays.

showed why he's worth the >$1 mil we paid him.

Nice clutch hitting by the veterans.

Really showed some poise and savvy and battled deep in the count to work the Sox pitchers.

Excellent effort fielding/plate wise from Berroa. He's as steady as they come.

How could we be considered a major league team playing like we are? I dont understand it, we were doing fine at 2-2 beating the sox 2 out of 3 times, then we were beating the yanks by 2 in the 7th in the first game and jeter got them the lead with a hr and it was fully downhill from there. We were looking prety good then, have they just lost all confidence since then?

Well... we are at 8 in a row. 11 more till 19 in a row. That is a REAL possibilty at this point. We can't hit, we can't pitch and we can't play defense. I don't see any player on the Royals that could start for even a middle tier major league team. I am sure we have a few that could start for the Pirates but thats about it.
