The I think that I think
is a spoof on that one sportswriter whose name seems to be eluding my tongue at the moment.
I don't think moving Nevin was the move we needed. He was our vocal leader...moving him when we're struggling as bad as we are isn't that great of an idea.
I think most of our offensive problems stem with the fact that Bochy has not used the same lineup on back-to-back days in months. How can he expect them to produce without some sort of camaraderie?
The most pitiful thing that has happened is the fact that Pedro Astacio has somehow gotten a pitching job on, what was, a division leader. Did they honestly expect him to pitch even respectably 50% of the time, because that is just straight foolish.
David Ross, Miguel Olivo, Joe Randa, Chan Ho Park, Paul Quantrill for Phil Nevin, Geoff Blum, Tim Redding, Darrell May, JJ Furmaniak (who can hit better than Ross and Olivo), Justin Germano (who is better than Astacio, far and away), Travis Chick and Miguel Ojeda isn't exactly a collective swap that will change much. I may like Randa, but Germano could have helped out in place of Astacio, so the trade isn't that prosperous.
A big thumbs down for Towers...we needed more.
