Be nice if we could get some runs for Smith early. It always helps to be able to pitch with a lead, especially for the new starters

I'm looking for Smith to have a good first inning. It seems like his poor performance may have been due to nerves. A strong start to tonight's game would be a positive sign that he's more ready for the majors than his poor start would have indicated.

mr. tegu

This pitcher is all over the zone with some average at best pitches. We should put up some runs but the question is whether or not Smith can keep Minnesota from further damage.

Al Bundy

Damn.. De Vries owning the Royals. What a shocker

Smith with a couple strike outs and a terrific catch. He has some good stuff. He just needs to figure out how to get out of the first inning without giving up runs and using too many pitches.

Bunting runners over with Escobar (who has a little pop) to get to Dyson? Sometimes Ned Yost makes absolutely zero sense. Let your hitters hit the goddamn ball, Ned.

mr. tegu
06-04-2012, 08:25 PM
Personally I would rather have Escobar swinging away and counting on him to come through over Dyson. Even if Dyson lifts it he might not get it deep enough for a sacrifice.

Classic over-management from Ned there. Take the bat away from one of your decent hitters to set the table for Dyson and Quintero.

That inning really epitomizes Ned's ineptitude as a manager for me. I can only hope that when this team is ready to compete, we've found a manager who knows what he's doing during a game.

On an aside, Smith throws way too many meatball pitches. In 3 games, he's shown very little ability to hit the corners with any consistency.

mr. tegu
06-04-2012, 08:39 PM
Ned really pisses me off. Sacrifices Escobar for Dyson and Quintero and then throws Smith back out there to promptly return the game to them.

So.. I guess you are good with seeing guys like Will Smith taking the mound every 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th day? In order to get something good you have to give up something good. Hosmer is our best asset and if we need to trade him to become less embarrassing on the mound then it needs to happen.

We have pitching on the way...Odirizzi, Lamb, Duffy in 18 months, Dwyers still a possibility, Montgomery is a poker chip, Arguelles could pan out, Jason Adam, etc... and this years free agent pitching is as deep and potentially talented a class as any in recent memory.
