Darvish's slider is disgusting. Some of the swings hitter take against him are cringe worthy lol

He'll get righties leaning out over the plate to cover the slider, then he'll run a 93-95 2-seamer inside to just tie guys up.

Disgusting. There aren't too many guys who can just toy with major league hitters like he does when he's on.

Lastings wants to know what happened to Felix Pie lol

There are so many highly touted prospects who just never pan out.

Someone I know had playing time taken away from them in AA when LaPorta was traded to the Brewers. He still jokes about how he was benched for someone who was such a bust lol

Edit: traded to the Indians, from the Brewers.

That is why I'm a fan of trading prospects for a known commodity, it may bite you sometimes, but more often than not prospects don't pan out.

Tough loss today, hate that Brandon League is our closer. ******g Colletti and his 3 year deals.

Crazy how high of a prospect he was viewed as, Boston wanted him and Manny could've landed in NY. Even NY fans weren't sure about the trade laugh.gif
Quote:
According to three baseball men familiar with the three-way conversations, the original three-team trifecta involving Manny collapsed over a dispute between Boston and Tampa Bay.

The Devil Rays were insisting that Boston trade both its top offensive prospect, Hanley Ramirez, and its top pitching prospect, Jon Lester, to the Rays in order to finish off the deal. The Red Sox, however, couldn't convince themselves to trade their two best prospects and their 150-RBI cleanup man in one massive transaction.

But Tampa Bay held firm. So by game time Saturday night, the Red Sox and Mets had decided to remove the Devil Rays from the equation and see if it was possible to pull this off as just a New York-Boston shuttle flight.

They never got farther, however, than a tentative proposal to send Ramirez and about $15 million in cash to the Mets, in exchange for Mike Cameron and the Mets' top prospect, Lastings Milledge. The New York Times reported the Red Sox wanted a second minor-league prospect from the Mets in the deal.

Watching Trout's AB yesterday in the 6th inning just left me shaking my head. Darvish drops in a 60'something MPH curve to just freeze him for a K. There was nothing Trout could have done except for taking the L lol

Outside pitch and he just put a beautiful swing on that ball, minimum 420ft to dead CF.

I'm a big Alex Gordon fan. He's a solid all around player.

4 out of the A's first 5 series of the season came against horrendous teams.  Not a shocker they are struggling against better teams, and on the road.

The starting pitching fell apart, there's no other way to spin it. But you don't have to worry about us, we'll be fine. Thanks for the concern.

And it's funny for some of you to act like it was bound to happen for the A's to fall apart when they went on the run that they did last year and pushed the Tigers to five games in the ALDS. Shows how little you care/know about the small market teams.
