Not even close but to Hassli's credit it was a very clutch goal that came in the 91st minute to tie the game which was the 1st leg of the Canadian Championship.

Fowler with another triple.

Any mod stick this?

That's been long overdue, but at least they aren't a bunch of overpaid losers (with the exception of Pedroia and Ellsbury) like my Red Sox.

Hopefully we clean house after this year.

Helton4Hall 05-17-2012 04:25 PM

Hopefully the house gets cleaned right now.

hope the pacers clobber the heat

What do we expect with the rockies? No pitching at all, if you can't win games you score 7 runs in :facepalm:

At the very least Apodaca and Lansford need to go.

I agree they need to go, but Tracy and O'Dowd need to go first, the problem starts from the top down and those two are at the top of the pyramid.

Jim Tracy is one of the most over-rated managers of all time, if you look at his track record everywhere he goes his 1st year with the team is always the best then it goes straight down hill. Tracy needs to go.

Most people think Tracy is a terrible manager, so can't really say he's overrated.

Rhaego 05-17-2012 11:18 PM

O'dowd needs to be gone first. The development in this organization is a complete joke.

Bonzai12 05-18-2012 02:18 AM

Agree it needs to be O'Dowd. If you want massive change the way to do it is oust the GM and let him bring in his own guys all down the organization lines.

They've just blundered way too many draft picks. The only bright spots for O'Dowd really have been Cargo and Tulo in what? like 12 years or something? Fowler is getting beat out by Colvin who will not keep this up all year. Stewart's gone. Ubaldo's gone. If Pomeranz ends up being only average this team is doomed for the next 5 years.

Fire McDaniels!

No doubt Tracy and DOD need to go. But Apodaca wore out his welcome 3 years ago. And Lansford has been a disaster since he was hired. I didn't think they could get worse than Don Baylor. But he is an absolute genius compared to Lansford.

Those two need to be the first to go. Then you have to make a hard play for Francona to replace Tracy.

JWK 05-18-2012 09:15 PM

Where can we get one of those Justin Verlanders?

JWK 05-18-2012 10:54 PM

Who do you guys got tomorrow? Chelsea or Bayern Munich? I got Munich winning 4-2.

Jim Tracy proved yesterday why he is the worst manager of all time. What kind of idiot blows his entire bench by the end of 8th inning? I thought games were 9 innings :sarcasm:

But in all seriousness he puts in Herrera in a double switch in the top of the 8th, then pinch hits Giambi for Herrera in the bottom of the 8th, then pinch runs EY Jr. for Giambi, then instead of just letting probably our best hitting pitcher Rogers just bat and not blow our last bench player Rosario, Tracy thinks its a genius move to let Rosario bat.

Then we proceed to go down 2 in the top of the 9th and in the bottom of the 9th we load the bases up and guess what due to Tracy's genius moves the previous innings the 6 hole is the pitchers spot and we have no one left to pinch hit in a big time situation.

Then after we lose, Tracy has the balls to go blame the pitchers. Yeah they sucked but the reason we lost was due to just horrendous game management. My mom who knows nothing about baseball could have managed that game better than Tracy did. What a joke, and I write this we are about to get shut out by a terrible Seattle team. If Tracy and O'Dowd aren't gone by the end of this month, I might have to find another team to cheer for, which would be tough as I been a fan of the Rockies since day 1.

No they lost that game because of pitching. Giving up six rubs in the eight and ninth innings is going to cause problems.
