Interested to see whether Sandberg gives some other relievers save opportunities if Papelbon blows another in the near future. What a mess is right.

I kept my FREE RUF poster when I moved just for such a situation...

"I always love how Corey rushes in to defend his article if someone insults him or disagrees with him, yet the dozens of posts complaining about the trolls posting inappropriate, potentially offensive (and completely irrelevant) things or a lack of a "jump to newest comments" button are ignored. Sigh." This. Heck, he could be arguing against himself up there under the guise of being an active reader of the comments and it wouldn't surprise me.

I'm with Bonehead: Even if manipulation is the name of the game, they don't have to push too hard with ol' r00b on the court.

I will believe in Bubba's rebirth of BL when and only when the "Jump to the newest comments" button makes its return. Last three appearances: April 20, 2013 April 19, 2013 October 3, 2012

As much as I was laughing at an imaginary confrontation between r00b and Beane earlier, the Rockies just stole Brett Anderson from the A's--for that price, r00b should have tried to get his hands in the mix for him.

I almost wish that my other favorite team wasn't the A's so that I wouldn't have to see Beane making all kinds of clever moves during the offseason while r00b does his little song and dance. Night and frakking day. I just imagine r00b approaching Beane for something... like the town fool approaching the king for a trade. What follows is Beane robbing the Phillies dry and r00b feeling really great about the Production™ he's going to have. On second thought, maybe they never talk because r00b knows that the A's average OBP in 2013 was .327 and, well, you know what they say about that statistic..

The time machine was supposed to take us back to the late 2000s. Someone made a horrible mistake. Posted by: Cyclic | Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 09:54 PM In hindsight, we should've gotten the time machine on an incentive-laden contract.

"I'm not sure what more amusing. The stanton $hit or price talk. Guys really these will never happen move on." I wonder how long it was amusing to Dan Jennings before it turned obnoxious. 'Cause for me it was real quick.

He made contact and it went into the field of play. If you gave Freese 7 or 8 more PA, he might get one out of the infield. Posted by: NEPP | Wednesday, October 30, 2013 at 11:00 PM Who gets one first, 2013 WS Freese or April 2013 Ben Revere?

Ruf makes that catch. No need to sign Beltran.

MVP: Utley Cy Young: Lee Rookie: Ruf Most improved: Dom Get him outta here: Paps Next season I'm most interested in seeing if Sandberg uses platoons and how he handles Howard. If some good moves are made this offseason (cough) and he is smart about his lineups, I think that the team can get back on track. Meanwhile, I wish the Marlins would trade Stanton to another team so that people would stop talking about him coming here. It just ain't gonna happen.

This write-off is absurd. r00b probably refuses to believe that keeping D-Yak in as a starter for as long as he did instead of bringing Ruf up was the wrong answer. Glad I kept the FREE RUF sign that I made back in June... prepare for another call to arms, Cyclic...

I wasn't aware of this until this morning, but anyone really wishing to bury themselves in sadness can buy Doc's 2010 performances on iTunes and watch them over and over and over....

The Phillies HAVE given him a chance to get 30. He's blown that chance several times now.

Even though the Phillies are known to be looking for a RH corner outfielder, I'm not convinced that they should spend on it. In 179 PA, Ruf has a .935 OPS against righties, and in 74 PA, a .660 OPS against lefties. Is the price tag of an injury-prone Corey Hart worth it? He may be more consistent than Ruf, having an OPS ranging from .841-.866 in his last three seasons, but he's older than Ruf and is coming off of season-ending knee surgery. I'd rather see the money go towards pitching.
