Being a Duck fan, we're experts at keeping Skippers who have overstayed their welcome even though they've won a championship. See Carlyle, Randy. hahahhahahhahahahahhahahahahahahha

Getting rid of Sosh has been an ongoing theme for the past three to four years and counting!

This has been known for quite a while now. There's no immediate relief any time soon. Unless... we start bringing up OF Calhoun and 1B Cron. Heck, include Lindsey as well. Have these young players get some burn who have offensive potential. It can't be any worse than it is now.

I've had MLB.tv Premium for 2 years now and most likely will not get it anymore starting next year.

I don't blame you. I keep watching... and waiting for the implosion. This team wasn't built around pitching and yet we lose in a pitcher's type score. bleah.

At least you guys get an easy series against us. Our bats are garbage right now, 21 innings without a run coming in to the series tonight against the Angels.

As do I, man. Erstad and Glaus were my favorite players growing up. I still remember where I was for game 7 of the 02 World Series. I'll never forget Erstad catching that final out in center field. Good times!

Also gone are the three other coaches under Sosh who now have their own baseball teams. Maybe some of those underlings also had a hand in helping the org win.

Let the fire sale begin!

Relief LHP Downs was traded away for a minor league pitching prospect today.

I think losing is the only way to fire Sosh. It's time for a change that's been long overdue.

Forget Maddon if you're going to throw the check book around. Get Bochy! Bochy started his coaching career here in the southern cal, actually, the high desert mavericks (high single A) back when they were the Padres' affiliation. In his three years as the single A coach, he's won three championships there with no real talent in the system. Now look at what he's done in SF!

Fire everyone!!!!

Also looks like Pujols' season is over, time to drop Williams and Blanton and bring up Cron and Maronde.

I'll be interested to see if Dipoto decides to blow things up at the deadline tomorrow.

There are rumors that Howie will be traded. The Angels do have some young guns in their system for infielders such as Lucho and Lindsey.

Other fielding interests are SS Aybar and 3B Callaspo.

heh heh heh fire sale!

Can we trade managers?

Callaspo traded for a 2B prospect - DURING the game; he got pulled once it was confirmed and Fields replaced him on the field. Ernesto blew another save in the ninth again for consecutive games. Fortunately, we're still able to hold the tie and go into extras. Top of the 10th, man on first and no outs. Trout is 4-4 with two walks, one of those intentional.

And Frieri blows it again, at least Hamilton has 4 RBI's.



And Martin hits a walkoff 3 run jack.

Teams are finally figuring out that Frieri has 1 pitch...and he rarely even throws that for a strike.

angels need to blow it up. kendricks value will never be higher, move him now and get something good. Weaver and Trout are the only untouchables.....everyone else should have a price

It's sickening. This team is just sickening. Two years of Pujols and nothing to show for it. Two years of Trout kicking ass and nothing. Weaver and Wilson couldn't even get wins.
