Raves:

Bell mucked through 5 1/3 innings and only allowed 2 runs. He keeps the ball down in the zone and is hitting 94 MPH on several occasions throughout the ball game. Definitely has made progress from a year ago.

Cassevah, Kohn, and Thompson combined for 3 1/3 innings of shutout baseball. Kohn and Thompson have been solid.

Willits did have a 3 for 3 game with a BB. I just wish he could still steal bases.

Hunter hits his 3 homer in the past few games, now do you think he could ACTUALLY do that with MEN ON BASE??????

That is all.


Rants:

I'm unloading tonight!

Starting with K-Fraud 2.0. What pitcher gives up a grand salami to a hitter like Marson who's as bad as Mathis at the plate?????? Nice game K-Fraud, 4 batters faced, all reached base!!!!! Send him back down to SLC to start 2011!

Next, as much as Shields did for this club from 2003-2008, he just doesn't have ANY control anymore (34 BBs in 46 innings). Honor him at the 2010 home finale, but don't re-sign him.

I'm just warming up!

Hunter!!!!!! Did your mom tell you when you were growing up that RISP is the boogieman?????? You have driven in ONE freaking run over the past month that wasn't yourself scoring! 

And are you trying to be Forrest Gump on the bases? What fool tries to steal 3B with no outs and being down 6-1????? Your arse needs to be fined!!!!!!!

Rivera, feel free to learn the art of fielding pickoff throws!!!!! And feel free to actually get a hit (6 for the past 50). Yep, he's a real great 2nd half hitter!

Nice plate discipline "swing at anything Howie"!!!! Nine pitches was all it took to retire your arse all THREE times!!!!! Feel free to actually learn the freaking strike zone!!!!!

Aybar is a waste right now. TWENTY errors already, and can't even catch a throw from the catcher!!!! Oh, and nice 5 for the past 35 and 22 for the past 111!!!!!

Don't stop me, I'm rolling!!!!!

Abreu, figures that after having 2 hits Sunday, you're back to just 1 for 7 again and a whopping 8 for 62!!!!

Congrats Halos lineup, you have FOUR players in horrible skids (Abreu, Aybar, Rivera, and Mathis). Maybe the Halos AA players should come up here. Moore couldn't do any worse!!!!!

In fact, get Amarista and Auer up here! Bench most of the starters, and play Trumbo, Conger, Callaspo, Willits, Bourjos, and Amarista, and send a message to the CLOWNS currently in the lineup!!!

Hey Halos, that's EIGHT straight losses to the mediocre O's and pathetic Indians....which makes you as worthless as Countrywide stock was when they folded!!!!!!

Get some relievers in here who THROW STRIKES!!!!!!!!! Thompson has only walked 3 in 13.2 innings, and Walden has only walked 1 in 5 innings. They move to the head of the class in control pitching in the pen! This bullpen has walked something like 200 batters this season...DISGRACEFUL!!!!!

As Dean Wormer might say to quite a few of these veterans....FAT, DUMB, and LAZY is no way to play a MLB game, sons!!!!!
Love to hear what you think!
