What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
I just wanted to post another overreaction thread
Mission accomplished, then.
What is that, 4 grounders right at MY?
what a disaster of an outing from our ACE...
Not until busby gets fired. lol. he's on a winning strike!
winning strike or streak? Wilson had the worst defense that the Rangers have fielded so far.
strike. he's refusing to win until busby apologizes or gets fired lol. controversy!
Relax. He'll have it figured out soon like Ogando, just in time for the postseason where Texas will field the deadliest pitching staff in the history of the world!!!
More like the history of the universe!
It's just a cold-spell...pitchers can go through cold spells just as hitters can.
Honestly, I didn't get to watch the game today (followed it on gameday thread). It seems that it was more defensive problems than it was CJ from what I'm hearing. Is that a correct assessment?
not really, he drew too much contact, but it was the typical CJ dynamic i'm starting to notice. The key to CJ winning a game is the ump's strike zone. We all know he's a nibbler. he loves the corners. If he has an ump that calls his outside or inside stuff thats on the one or borderline he wins. If he gets one that doesnt he has to readjust and he struggles. its a trend i've noticed for the majority of the year, and it further is adding question to whether we should re sign him or not. i dunno its a very odd thing.
but this game was one of those situations. he wasnt getting the calls, and he attempted to adjust to the umps strike zone, got uncomfortable and was leaving too many balls up and in the heart of the SZ.
The zone can definitely get in his head sometimes. And errors on plays that should be made really affect how his outings go too.
Well if he doesnt ever win another game, he will certainly be easier to re-sign in the off season
So the postseason looks like this to me:I think 10 is the number with 15 position playersSP Wilson, Ogando, ________(Lewis/Harrison/ Holland)LR Lewis Harrison/Holland SR Uehra Adams FelizHoly sh!tandSpot R Tatayama Oliver
Is anyone just as excited as last year now? I mean, Lee was big, huge.....but these two guys damn near make 7,8,9 a nightmare for hitters. I like how this is setting up.
@Dcaggie06: I think you nailed it.
