Season is now "officially over", and we get jack ***** for JB. KW needs to be fired now, I would of liked to see us get a SS and then maybe 2 *****ty pitchers, but we get 3 straight crap players.

Name W\L % ERA G GS

*Masaoka, Onan 8- 4 .667 5.55 31 5

Berry, Jon (AA) 0- 0 .000 9.00 1 0
Berry, Jon (A) 0- 2 .000 4.35 28 0

Majewski, Gary 4- 5 .444 6.24 23 13


The only upside to this deal is that we get to bring somone up. I see Matt Guerrier coming up, here are his AAA and AA stats:

Guerrier, Matt 2- 0 1.000 3.33 4 4
Guerrier, Matt 11- 3 .786 3.10 15 15

This signaled that KW wasnt going to sign JB, and I don't really blame him, if he was going to ask 10 mil a year, which is just obsurd.

We got shafted hard, fire KW now.

Wake up. I know everyone here wants to live in the fantasy world where JB is a good pitcher like he was in the first half last year, and his trade value is through the roof. But we aren't in that world. JB is BAD. BAD. BAD. This guy holds a record for the highest ERA ever after throwing 1000 innings(I think it's 1000). He is a bad pitcher. He doesn't have much left on his fastball, and he isn't going to help us this year. We definately weren't going to sign him after the year. Face it, KW did what any smart GM would do. He took a pitcher who had little to no upside, and got rid of him.

Stop with the KW sucks ****.

I know JB is bad, but we could of gotten much better propsects, we got nothing at all. Hell, we should of traded Baldwin for a 12 pack, that trade would of made sense.

Come on Cerberus, you just said why we didn't get anything for him. He's BAD. The Dodgers aren't stupid. Do you really think they were thinking well we know hes bad but lets give up something good for him? It's just like Bernstein always says on the score. You don't give up bad for good. You give up good for good, or potentially good for good. Or of course bad for bad.

Yeah, but none of these minor leaguers even have an ERA under 4! We don't need to flood our minor system with more pitchers, especially more crappy pitchers.

Majewski was pretty good when he was in our system if I recall. But again I might be wrong.

I seem to remember him being pretty crappy, but I might be wrong too.
