OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Loaiza
Unless he pitches well in his next outing, the $21M we gave him was a mistake. Loaiza is saying it's some kind of "voodoo" as to why he's pitching like crap.
Actually, they can't afford to move Kennedy. He is the only LOOGY. And he still hasn't given up a run; he's continued his successful spring. Saarloos is likely the guy in line to start, if the need occurs.
Dave Henderson thinks the guys who pitched in the WBC are going through the "dead arm" period most pitchers experience in Spring Training. They're just getting it later because they had different type of work.
Slightly? Try very shaky.
Ugh. I know everyone was all upset over the Twins series but this is the first loss of the season that I think they really they should have won. Just awful.
you don't think 3-4 run leads are enough to hold and win? See Minn games....
Both of those games they blew the lead early. A three or four run lead in the 3rd inning isn't safe in any game. Today you had a great outing by Haren wasted by the fluke homerun, a punchless offense outside of Chavez, and an awful performance by Street.
Street should've have pitched in 3 consecutive games...he's only done it once before in his career and I think if it wasn't for his "bobblehead day"....Duke or Calero should've been in the ninth...Street had nothing today. Stupid ump didnt' help either on those two pitched to Texiera that could've gone either way. He K's and Nevin the next AB hit would've been a game ending double play....
is it too early to say they are always off to a slow start? ok i guess we have to wait another two weeks for that huh?
Yeah, Street was getting squezzed a bit by the Ump but damn you just got to by pass Teixara. Worst case he should have been pulled after that bomb.
don't forget May was the disasterous month last year (and many of the last few years).
At this point of the season, AL West is the weakest division in the AL from an objective view. It's going to be tough on the teams, but fun for us fans for any team in this division thinks it can win it.
Two more weeks of Mr. Macha batting BC in the 3rd spot will make your prophesy come true Lil.
Amen, rb. No way Crosby should be in the 3 hole.
Heck, Swish should be in the 3-hole NOW!
Decent outing for Loaiza tonight...not great but at least he managed to get his first win of the season and hopefully starts like these are a sign of better things to come.
otf- Duke got the win tonight. He was the pitcher of record when Swisher hit his 2nd HR. I do agree that Loaiza had a decent outing tonight. He may be over the hump.
Kudos to everyones favorite manager for his use of the bullpen last night.
Hopefully this means Loaiza is over his spring training and ready to help the team. Maybe he can come back and win 20 like 03?????
I'd be bummed about a Zito trade. Look at the Hudson trade. I'd rather get the draft picks from losing him to Free Agency rather than get the three stiffs we got for Huddy.
My mistake, Duke did get the win.
