About time, good GDT

other suggestions:
maybe provide a scouting report for both pitchers as well as a hot/cold comparison for hitters vs the pitcher as well as a brief preview for each team (did they just sweep and on a hot streak? Do they have lots of injured players?)

Nicely done. And I agree, maybe indicate some interesting game streaks (Like a string of hits).

Looking forward to seeing JPAs departing twitter comments that day in the distant future when he is traded.

Not my fault, BaseballPress released their lineups ~10mins before I posted the GDT. Oh and yeah I was supposed to do the scouting reports but ran out of time today :/

Thank you! And yes, for sure for tomorrow's GDT. I barley had enough time to make the one today, so I'll just make tomorrow's GDT during the game if I get bored :)

Love the fact that Gibby is mixing things up going with Blanco. Would prefer it to be Thole, but at least it shows signs that Gibby understands their are fundamental issues with JPA.

admin
05-06-2013, 05:02 PM
I want to see Thole as well. Not sure why we don't. Dickey couldn't be worse, so why not change it up.

Stubbornness? I don't know, it really boggles the mind. The excuses I keep hearing are that Thole needs to get regular reps to keep him fresh in case something happens to JPA. I have a hard time believing that Thole couldn't backup JPA right now and step in to take over the role if needed.

At this point it should be a 50/50 split between Thole and JPA and then evaluate the better option from there.

Agree with above posters, need Thole here now, Blanco isn't a major league caliber catcher anymore and JPA has great power but his defensive issues are pretty well established at this point, Thole should be a nice medium.

I just don't get it. This team needs a bit of a shakeup and we have a MLB calibre catcher rotting away in AAA.

Guy is only one season removed from two damn fine seasons. If given the chance he could literally be our starting catcher.
His CS% is pretty poor, but I don't know how Dickey effects that, if negatively or even positively though. I'm sure someone else will know.

NICE GTD fatcow!

My girlfriend's borther ran into AA in the washroom at one of the outlet malls in buffalo this morning. They had a good baseball conversation after.
Two things I took from this.
1. AA hasn't gone insane and still talks to random fans.
2. AA is worried about his future and is already be careful with his spending by shopping at the outlet mall.

Ryan Roberts batting 3rd? I don't care how good their pitching is, we have to win these games. That lineup is laughable.

From everything I have heard about Thole and the few times I have seen him catch, he should be a nice upgrade defensively over JPA overall. Plus he gets on base at a decent clip. Something this team dearly needs. We have enough power in the lineup, we need guys on base.

Chappy

I really think Buehrle is going to do well tonight. That Rays lineup does not instill any fear whatsoever. Hopefully Buehrle can give us one of his Buehrle like starts tonight and give this team a chance to get some wins under their belt.

Thanks Dylan! and LOL I wonder how the encounter was at the washroom?

"Hey, is that AA?!"

"OMG I love the Jays! I support you guys 100%!" *Extends hand to get a hand shake*
AA: "Uhhh, I'm a bit busy..."

Today’s Matchup
Jays @ Rays – Series 1/3 (7:07pm EST)
Opponent Pitcher: RHP Hellickson (1-2, 4.71)

How to play:
Pick a player on the Jay's starting lineup that you think will hit the first bomb during today's game. If you pick the correct player you will earn the corresponding points. Players more unlikely to hit a home run will earn you more points than those likely to knock one out. Below is a list of the points each player is worth today. You can only pick one player, and you can't change once you picked. You must have your pick in before the first pitch of the game. I will keep track of points and the board member with the most points at the end of the year wins.

22
1. Lawrie (3 HR) – 2 Points
2. Melky (1 HR) - 3 Points
3. Bautista (7 HR) – 1 Point
4. Edwin (9 HR) – 1 Point
5. Lind (0 HR) – 3 Points
6. Rasmus (4 HR) – 2 Points
7. Izturis (2 HR) – 3 Points
8. Blanco (0 HR) – 4 Points
9. Kawasaki (0 HR) – 4 Points

Do you think JG may lead to JPA being a half time player?

This seems like the first step towards that... Lots of negative media attention towards JP by guys who 'sort of' know what they're talking about (Morris, Zaun)

I think Buehrle is going to be requesting Blanco catch his games after this one.

Calls going both ways.....consistency is what you want.

I agree that the low strike is being called against both, but it looks like it's a little more narrow against Buehrle. Possibly has something to do with the lefty vs. righty viewing angle?
