We've actually hit Santana pretty well this year it seems.

Looking it up, he's now given up more runs to the Royals than any other team.

that burgos sucks and so does berroa. Also, burgos needs to go down to the minors, i dont see why they havent yet...

08-04-2006, 10:31 PM
I put that loss as much if not more on Bell than I do Burgos.

Hammock Parties
08-04-2006, 10:36 PM
Agreed my beavis friend. Bell really needs to realize that keeping burgos in the majors right now is killing him, if he spent another year in the minors, itd probably help him so much. He has no confidence out there, and blows every single time hes out...

Burgos is awful and its odd you never see him show any emotion. Looks as though he expects to and is comfortable blowing leads at this point. I hope I am wrong but I am ready write him off. Send him back to the minors or get rid of him all together.

08-04-2006, 11:19 PM
I doubt he is comfortable with blowing anything. People handle shit different. I really think he needs to work on his control in the minors. Maybe give the Braun guy a shot or Joe Nelson at closing for the rest of the year? Twins should've kicked our ass in this game considering they had the bases loaded 5 freakin times!
