Neither Detroit or Boston will score a run this year.

Papa Fatass is going to blow 42 saves this year.
I find your belief system.........fascinating.

but there are people in life, people you know in your own personal life Joe that just always seem to have a cloud over them. I try to distance myself form those folks as much as possible and I bet you do to.


Clearly, I am the not-bright one.

Prorated over 162 games, the Astros will amazingly finish 81 and 81, a full 22 games above most expectations.

If this game never finishes, Lawrie may single-handedly ruin many teams' seasons.

With this now being the longest season opening game in league history, it seems inevitable at this point. Sorry to you and all other Lawrie owners.

He's no Tyler Clippard.

The very fact there are black colleges is racist against white people. It seems their racist school has had trouble filling up due to black people going to other universities(this has been stated in articles you have posted) so now black colleges are forced to be less racist, and saying hey, we don't just accept black people here you know.

Not to bring seriousness into this thread, but what happened? I see he left the game but can't find a report as to why.

And even though this thread is all about overreaction to small sample sizes, just a note on those in love with Lawrie's small sample size performance from LAST YEAR...

Thursday's game dropped his career batting average 11 points. :headbang:

Is it possible to overreact to Trumbo's error on his first touch? I don't think it is. If he can't play 3rd, he'll have zero value and I can't imagine Scoscia will be very patient on this.

I'm not how sure his head is still in the game. All he talks about is going out on his terms, when the time is right, etc. At some point guys can't get it done like they used to, with every year that passes the chances increase exponentially. He's not done but I can see him being just slightly above average at some point, this year is as good as any for that to happen.

Make that 2 times the ball has come his way and 2 errors. Why was I foolish enough to fall for this Trumbo to 3rd pipe dream? I think Trumbo cost himself 100 ABs tonight.

The plan was to get Trumbo 50ish games at third. I don't think it's an overreaction to bet the under. Trumbo needs to make huge improvements in a hurry if he's going to stay at the hot corner. Trumbo made Miguel Cabrera look like a gold glove candidate. Pujols can only do so much to help cover his terrible throws.

Yea I'm sure he'll be fine but they hit some really hard balls off of him last night. Surprising to see.

Exactly. Until he has a goose-egg of a season, I'm not bettting against Mariano. But for the past three or four years, I haven't been betting on him, either.
