Typical South Florida police behavior. When will the public finally have enough of these roid head louts?

But it was a nice win, almost a must win. Yes, it's early in the season, but if they had lost yesterday there would have been some wondering and doubting about this team. Now we have to see what will happen with JJ. I was against them building the pitching staff around JJ as The Ace; he has not been able to stay healthy. I wanted them to go all out and get a bona fide Ace like CJ Wilson, but again, they went THE CHEAP ROUTE. But Buerhle is pitching decently as is Zambrano so far. And so far Nolasco has been Nolasco. The wild card in that rotation is Anibal Sanchez who is in his contract year. They might need him to step up and be The Ace if JJ's loss of velocity is permanent, which I fear it might be.

The outfield cannot continue with TWO DEFENSIVE BUTCHERS (Lomo & Stanton) in it. You can get by with one BUTCHER, but not with two. Lomo is a first baseman, and he plays left field like one. They need to move Lomo to 1st base (trade Gaby or platoon him with Lomo) and put Cogs in LF, see how he does. If he doesn't hit, they need to get a left fielder from somewhere, because this ain't gonna work.

John Buck continues to be a terrible catcher. Not only is he a DP machine, but teams run wild on him. And the bullpen has been horrible, with the exception of Steve Cishek. Webb is a HR giver as is Dunn, and lately so is Mujica. He had a decent year last year, but he is prone to bad streaks. And I was not dancing in the streets when they signed Heath Bell as the closer. He’s a fat guy who was pitching above his talent level in a huge ballpark in San Diego. They could have signed Papelbon, a legit lights out strikeout artist. But of course the front office decided to go the CHEAP ROUTE. Hilarious, this ownership. Even when they finally break down and spend money they do so CHEAPLY.
