This lineup doesn't stand a chance. Last night we ran out our C-lineup and we got lucky that Bedard sucks. Today is our B-lineup with a terrible pitcher starting for us. Looks like the first blowout of the year for us.

alnorth
04-16-2011, 10:09 AM
Seriously though, this is our path to victory.

O'Sullivan gives up 4 runs through 6. (only four because Seattle has a pop-gun offense) Our bullpen takes over and blanks Seattle the rest of the way. We fail to score on King Felix or maybe we scratch out a run, but we manage to foul off pitches and work him over to the point that he's out in the middle of the 7th or after 7. Gordon, Butler, and Kila go completely Ape on their setup man, whoever he is. Betemit and Frenchy pinch hit to lead us to the win. Soria ends the game with a 2-0 record.

He's in his second year, so he has four more years of arbitration-controlled contract time (he might qualify as a super-two and be eligible for arbitration after this season).

This. Made a diving stop, got up quick and still made the throw to first in time. Only 2 or 3 shortstops in the league could make that play IMO.

what's a super-two?

You usually don't qualify for salary arbitration until you have 3 years, but if you fall just barely short of the 3rd year after the season is ended, you may qualify as a super two and get salary arbitration.

Super 2 is just a money thing, not player control.

It is very bad, and O'Sullivan is legitimately putting in the very best mediocre performance he's possibly capable of in front of a good defense.

Sean is up to about 70 pitches and wobbling. He might go 5, but thats probably it.

So, what do you do when the ump sucks and wont give the corners or the low strike?

Bring in the fireballer and just fire them in there.

Seriously though, this is our path to victory.

O'Sullivan gives up 4 runs through 6. (only four because Seattle has a pop-gun offense) Our bullpen takes over and blanks Seattle the rest of the way. We fail to score on King Felix or maybe we scratch out a run, but we manage to foul off pitches and work him over to the point that he's out in the middle of the 7th or after 7. Gordon, Butler, and Kila go completely Ape on their setup man, whoever he is. Betemit and Frenchy pinch hit to lead us to the win. Soria ends the game with a 2-0 record.

Quoted for lutz :)

"The Royals announced Sunday that they acquired shortstop Alcides Escobar, outfielder Lorenzo Cain and right-handed pitching prospects Jake Odorizzi and Jeremy Jeffress from the Brewers in exchange for Greinke, shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt and cash considerations."

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=5935586

The fact that Greinke hasn't pitched yet, and Escobar and Jeffress is doing well, I'd say it's fairly even. Hell, it got rid of Betancourt, that alone is also a win, for KC.
