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?

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

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.

Tal: "Troll" and "heckler" you used in response to me. I don't care that you did but I do care that you did and then try to act above the fray or as if you are lowering yourself to converse with me. I call people names here and own up to it. You should do the same. It is clear from your comments you want to be able to say crazy things and then get indignant and throw a temper tantrum when you get told why your thoughts may be wrong. That may fly on isportsweb where zero people respond to your articles (and you say you are getting a bunch of clicks from here but the only comments on your articles have been me mocking them) but here on Beerleaguer there are way too many intelligent people and posters with wildly divergent views. If you had a 6 on 1 that wasn't gang mentality piling on that was people telling you your thoughts were idiotic. Perhaps instead of posting your articles (multiple times because apparently you feel people aren't seeing it) almost exclusively as your contributions you could actually try to engage in the discussions and the back and forth and maybe learn something. Hell there are things I learn stat wise a lot here. Or you could just keep trying to shill your poorly worded and constructed articles here to the acclaim of no one. Up to you. Now as Jake said- back to baseball.

Awh: so Ruf's OPS would be 8th when pitted against the average of a teams's 25 man roster? Rally: are you asking by Monty in light of the new commissioner or in light of Amaro? I don't think they are connected in any way but I'm curious why you think they are. Tal: you called me a troll a few pages back so now you are lying. You made a dumb comment about Hamels and got called on it. Your response was to say you won't confer with those people. You are being silly

Guys be careful or the illustrious internet author Tal Venada will call you guys trolls too

BAP: no I'm pretty certain it is the 3.75 million a month. Maybe I'll write a poorly composed article about it.
1 reply
BAP: but that will be 2015 so they will be okay with it then. Besides it is a foolish counter argument because the Red Sox are flush with cash. If they wanted him badly enough they wouldn't risk him going elsewhere over 7.5 million dollars

Well if you connect together 7 dots and use your own common sense it is true

BAP: outline for us the studies you have read that indicate PEDs stay in your system for 2-3 years after stopping the consumption of them

If we can't go off of what Fangraphs says how else can we add to the discussion Iceman?

I wonder how much of Dom's issues this year are on field related and how much are off field related. By that I mean- he was scuffling for a little and then Bowa went out and bashed him in the media. I wonder how much of that is working on him

Poster Michael Martinez's stupidity knows no bounds. He is the Ted Williams of idiotic posts

Good for Ryan Howard. He needed that and he delivered big in that spot. It would be nice if that snowballed for him and he could get himself on a little bit of a roll

I'm pretty sure Happ made like 10 starts at the end of last year. Think he came back in late July/early August
