Once again Acta with terrible moves. Lets see so far....

- Multiple hit and runs in stupid situiations with sloths on the bags
- Not PH Hafner for Duncan in the 10th.
- Not calling for the bunt in the 11th. Instead we GIDP.

I bet Hamilton wins the game right here

Game lost due to terminal stupidity on the part of LaPorta-potty. Oh, with a little help from Carlos I-can't-block-a-ball-to-save-my-life Santana. Crap on a cracker.

Worst part about this is that Santana doesn't give a shit. He had his 5 RBI. He doesn't care that he cost us 2 runs behind the plate. He's still +3 in his mind.

All these catchers around the ballclub and he hasn't gotten any better. Means he doesn't listen and doesn't care.

The guy actually did contribute quite substantially to the loss. If he pitches like this for the next two years, he's the main problem with the team.

But LaPorta's so solid at first, we can't play santana there.

I've said it before, he acts like Manny Ramirez, without Manny's game to back it up.

Hey, just think. We all get to do this again tomorrow night! And the next night too! Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel. And, just like Groundhog Day, it will probably have the same kind of ending. Just hope if we lose it gets here sooner than 11 innings.

Look, I'd agree that LaPorta ain't that swift, but he ain't throwing him out no matter what. Even with the hitch he got the ball tool late to get it there in time.

Basic fundamental bullshit cost them their second game in 3 nights.

You can talk about anyone you want, this loss goes to one man. Your closer has two outs no one on in the 9th with a 2 run lead, you have to win regardless of how good those two hitters are.

Just when I thought we had come up with every conceivable way to gag a game in the last 2 months, we get Willie Mayes Hayes-ed by a sprinting baserunner in the 11th inning after being up 2 with 2 out and nobody on in the 9th. To quote Ron Burgundy, "I'm not even mad. That's amazing."

Unless you're still up 4 in the ninth cause someone on the team knows how to run the bases.

He's blown more than that, way more, His top of the 9th tie game appearances he has blown more of than saves, those count for me too.

Yeah, Acta made some bad decisions perhaps, but you really don't blame Perez with a two run lead wtih 2 outs and no one on in the 9th??

This loss in on Acta as much as Chris Perez.


No way. Up 2 in a very important game after being up 5 earlier, your All Star closer is supposed to get the job done. Plus it's not like he got beat by some BS broken bat singles or something. He got taken to dead center on a meatball. Just can't happen if you have real playoff aspirations.

^Bingo.^ I think I'll quit while you guys are ahead with the points. Image

A fly ball home run pitcher is taylor made for Arlington?.....What?


This is another example of that facetiousness I talk about. As in tomlin's only weakness is he gives up lots and lots of home runs, and he goes sunday....etc, etc, etc.



What? Please explain how fly ball pitcher who pretty much leads the world in homers given up is a good fit to pitch in a small, fly ball haven like Arlington? Not to mention against a team who hits homers in bunches.
