I'm friends with the group on Facebook "NL East." The Marlins moderator put up a post tonight saying two Phillies fans were ejected from the game for heckling Papelbon in the bullpen. Must have said some nasty things. The moderator said- "You can guess what Papelbon's response was."

You are not helping your raving lunatic case Tal.

Maybe Sandberg can rotate those three around. Maybe they can each get 100 RBI's PRODUCTION!!!

I don't get to post around here much (or anywhere really) as I am really busy right now. The Phillies still stink and changes need to happen. Also, Tal Venada is still posting his horrible articles and he invented a name to talk with himself i see. He needs to add there is a 4th category of stories- insane ramblings from a lunatic.

Jumms post at 10:34 was well reasoned and argued. It was logical and provided an accurate picture of where the team is rather than a strictly negative or positive one to keep appearances. Of course curt and Michael Martinez immediately jumped on it. I would expect the usual suspects to as well because they don't like logical arguments

MG: if they deserve it yes. I did like too how your first post in a while was being critical of me. Irony!!

And poster Michael Martinez continues to look like a babbling idiot

Well when you can have Rajai Davis playing center how can you compare? I mean does awh really think Revere would not be welcomed on the Braves over BJ Upton?

Awh: you said something stupid and BAP gave you 4 situations that proved you wrong. Just admit you overshot on your argument and move on

awh for someone who often can post good things you also put out a lot of nonsensical arguments. "Maybe, but they can afford both of them, so why not spread the risk." ____________________________________________ We don't know exactly what their budgets are. They could, and should, go over the luxury tax but perhaps that isn't in the business plan. Also, it may not be about spreading the risk. The talent evaluators are all over the place with Castillo (much like with MAG towards the end). Perhaps the Phillies didn't see fit to spend 10.5-13 million a year AAV on a guy who essentially might be a small upgrade on Ben Revere (at worst). Are you okay with that? __________________________________________ "WTF are they to judge what they think a player will be worth? Their judgment is so excellent? To answer that I have two words: Ryan Howard. A second answer: $180MM payroll and on the road to a 90 loss season." ____________________________________________ Announcement to everyone from now til forever. The Howard contract is a bad one. I don't think anyone argues that point anymore and concedes it. But let's please just keep using that as our basis of judging the team and their scouting. They have missed on guys and they have hit on guys. So has every other team in major league baseball. Also, if awh is on record saying that he will be worth it we should totally take his word to the bank. Remember this for the future everyone. ____________________________________________ "TTI, I didn't realize you were an FO supporter." ____________________________________________ "WAH, I'm awh and I hate when people use strawman arguments against me. But I will use them against TTI. That's cool." Also, your 2:56 post is horribly idiotic. I fully expected to see the Michael Martinez, mvptommy, or Sir Alden handle at the bottom of it.

Or it could be a signal that they prefer a different Cuban player? Or don't think Castillo is worth what he is paid? Or they have a different plan to get out of where they are? Any number of things it could be but yes it means they figure they are cooked for longer than we think. Amazing he logical hurdles people jump through

You would think Detroit might be more and more willing to make a move soon. They have a lot of money invested in that team and they are losing ground in the race and fading away quickly

Rally: I'm curious what you think the link between a concussion and BABIP is

Jake: Honestly I would not be surprised to see Giles as the closer next year.

Interesting that the "MG" troll shows up last night when Cyclic was on here trolling other people. Try again Columbo! BAP: I thought it was as valid as the point awh was making. There are better first baseman than Ruf on playoff teams there are worse. Howard- as noted- is not close to any of them.

Questions for the board: If you're the Braves... 28 year old Darin Ruf... or 24 year old Freddie Freeman? If you're the Cardinals... 28 year old Darin Ruf... or 26 year old Matt Adams?

BAP: yeah read again what I wrote

I so like that Rally tries to Pile in as well as if he never ever has said something insane. He makes a posting living doing that

Ruf has not been good for a large portion of his career as Iceman's numbers show which does contradict BAP's comment. He has been very good the rest of his career. He deserves a look though and an extended one at that. For whatever reason they are refusing to give one to him. I do think that if given a chance and he didn't cash in the people stumping for him would turn on him quickly. Also- many of the people piling on were ones who complained about group think at TGP. So being hypocritical or obnoxious and trolling like others is bad form

Blanco should be our starting shortstop for the next decade. Wait- we are saying idiotic things after every at bat right?

I do like that trolling you are okay with is perfectly acceptable

Jumps I appreciated your response on Ruf and thought it was very level headed. More level headed than what others have been putting forward. I think the truth on Ruf is somewhere between the two camps. Ruf has had the organizational deck stacked against him and unfortunately he has picked a bad year to get off to a slow start for him. Yes he is still better than Howard but recognize the playing field is stacked against Ruf so he needs to be that much better. I still think he will have a role in some form on this team going forward. He will just have to climb mountains until then

Do people really believe there is some Conspiracy within the Phillies organization to hold down Darin Ruf? What benefit would the team get from that?

FWIW- the teams initially against Manfred were: Blue Jays, Red Sox, White Sox, Nationals, Angels, Athletics, Diamondbacks, and Reds Also, Rusney Castillo will apparently make a decision next week on the offers he has received. Spoiler alert- he isn't taking his talents to South Philly
1 reply
Rally Red: To add further to my confusion on your comment. It looks like the Phillies were on board with voting for Manfred as the commissioner once his name come up. There were 8 teams holding out and the Phillies weren't one of them.
