    We had a solid shot

    We were IN the playoffs.

    Players have to perform. Managers have to manage. We watched poor results in both areas. We choked and simply did not get it done when there was a chance to do so. Many never took playoff at bats last year, the Dodgers did. They also overused the shift and gave away a run in a playoff game that they lost.

    Fucking up is fucking up. It doesn't matter where you're seeded, just that you're at the dance. Then you have to perform. KC did. They have rings now. Good for them.

    In grading the Nerds I figure that the DSP jackals would be pleased to see the Nerds finally send Donnie dumb dumb out to pasture. Gain points.

    Losing Greinke might have been a given from the start with our adamant stance against 6 years. And it came down to $50M. Come the fuck on now you have an $8B media gift, plus all other revenue streams and you can't pony up for a measly $50M ?? Major loss of points.

    Not signing Kendrick stat.. loss of points. Find a better 2B first. Not ancient Utley. Loss of points


    Tend to agree that the Winter meetings haven't started yet let's not grade them quite yet. That said I generously voted "C" ... guess I was happy at old Donnie is gone.

    Next few days could get interesting.

    If they can trade for Fernandez, yes.

    7 people voted a C or lower? You people are insane.

    Insane or not I gave my reasoning.

    They could do better.. but it's early.. I'm patient but we need some pitching in a bad way

    thats the cowards answer


    Come on take a guess before more data is known.. that was Darth's point.

    You can adjust. I'm leaning towards a B- if I see anything worthy

    but not yet

    I made the voting changeable so we could keep it organic. I'd love to see all A's at the end.

    Insanity has a limit...stupidity goes on indefinitely. Those who found the Nerds successful and ridiculously gave them a higher grade, since it's categorizing/insult time on how people voted, are stupid.
    It's sort of like the same as giving kids passing grades just so they move them out through the system.
    The standards are so sadly low these days.
    But they'll make money, so that's really what counts.

    I gave them a C because this is the 2nd year of the plan and we didn't win the WS so it's passing.

    No because we are about the only one who were saying World series or bust and not everyone is in the win now mode.

    If we don't win the World Series they suck!

    Acting like it's so easy to win a World Series.
