For our pitchers...

6. When we score, give it right back.
14. In the rare event of an error in the field, get mad, and give up lots of base hits.

3. Runs off the likes of Boof Bonser aren't worth scoring.

Hitting .214 since we acquired him and just as washed up as his brother was.

I hate to say it, but Widger would be better.

Blah. Did you see some of the pitches Sandy(Vazquez) was getting today? Sandy frames the ball like a pro and is just generally more savvy behind the plate. Widger wasn't an offensive powerhouse and neither is Alomar, but Sandy's baseball wisdom and reputation make him way more valuable than Widger was(especially if Widger had an attitude/work ethic problem as was unsubstantially reported).

Completely agreed. While Widger was a terrible hitter, we were all pretty disgusted that his catcher's ERA was like a full run higher than AJ's was. No teams have a spectacularly hitting backup catcher.

I like sandy but the only time he deserves to play is when mark is pitching or we are in a blowout.

I'm not sticking up for Sandy but he is definately better then the Widger of 2006. Everytime Widger was up this year I was just hoping he would put the ball in play. But I also don't understand Alomar starting today. I can see if they wanted to give A.J. a day off but he just sat out on Thursday and will be sitting out again on Tuesday.

What is with these ****ing downer threads?
Calm down Cavatica, we still lead the WC and didn't lose any ground in the division.

Are people really requesting Widger now? You have to be ****ing kidding me. A month ago everyone wanted his head on a platter. What a ****ing joke.

Isn't AJ 1 for 11 lifetime vs. Santana? That's reason enough for me.

Agreed. But a larger problem--at least to me, a former softball catcher--seemed to be that Javy shook off a lot of Sandy's pitches. Considering how pitiful Javy has been of late, Ozzie or Coop or someone should have gone out to the mound, slapped him in the head, and told him to stop shaking off his catcher.

Meh. I think his location sucked. Every pitch in the third inning was up. He just craps himself everytime something goes wrong out there. Or when he's given a lead.
