I propose that WSI officially comes up with a "Goat of the Game" every time we lose. I think tonight's candidate is obviously D'Angelo Jimenez.

Somewhere Ryan Klesko is grinning ear to ear.

Yep, Klesko is saying "I told you so". Jiminez needs to ride the pine. I agree w/ others who'd rather see Graffanino in at 2B instead of the moron Jiminez. I'll gladly trade the lower OBP for some heads-up play anytime.

:gulp:

Completely agree. OBP means nothing if you're just gonna throw it away.

Actually, I was considering suggesting a "Dumbass Of the Game" (DOG) award, but hadn't gotten around to it yet. It is interesting that you make the suggestion yourself. Personally, I think the Managers have to be eligible - unlike the PTC contest. We'll see...

He has to be the dummest player in the league


Jimenez is a liability BECAUSE he gets on base.

Hate to do this to ya, but when you call someone the dumbest of anything, you should spell "dumbest" right.

Why is it a forgone conclusion that Jimenenez should have scored on that hit? There was one out and the ball got to Mohr on one hop, a hop that was head high and put him in excellent throwing position.

You know I have to agree. I don't know if that was a great ball to score on either. His perspective made it hard to tell if the ball would be caught and after getting caught off base on Tuesday, I can imagine he was being extra cautious. The ball hung up. It wasn't a clear single, even watching on TV I wasn't sure if it would fall in or not.

There were lots of bad plays last night. Plenty of Dogs in that one - as usual for this team...

You're right. DJ isn't fast and the twins' outfielders have arms unlike our ofs.
