  • TLR: Time for something bold?

    OK. One game. No time to panic. This is for discussion purposes only.

    Is it time for Tony to do something bold....and I'm not sure what form that would take. Put So in the outfield and bat him second, hoping his ability to make contact will provide a nice one-two punch in front of Albert? Give Johnny Rod a start against Clemens....switch Yadier and Grudz in the line-up? Move Nunez to No. 2? He looks to be hitting the ball? Make Marquis or Thompson the set-up righty?

    (The really bold thing would have been to put Anthony Reyes in the bullpen, but alas.....)

    I don't know...we just looked kind of old and tired last night. Probably just because of Oswalt. But I now reluctantly am starting to believe I was wrong about Walker. He looks done.

    Or do you just tip your hat to Oswalt and go with what got you here? (Even if it's obvious to anyone with a pulse that Tavarez has about as much confidence right now as Ray King.)

    Here it is...your Friday toss-up question.

      I would NOT start J-Rod, his defense and baserunning gives me nightmares. In a series like this with pitching the way it is, I'd have to use J-Rod exclusively in a pinch hitting role.
      You're being fucking dramatic. You own a TV and an air mattress. That's not exactly what I'd call "a lot to lose."

        The Man pitched his ass off last night. As a baseball fan it was impressive. UP/down, in/out. 97/94/88/72

        jeebus not only does he have some serious junk, he can flat out pitch also.





        I will reitierate that bullpen wise, I see no reason for any other than Jason and Jason to touch rubber unless a starter gets run.

          Time for something unexpected, like Brad Thompson or Marquis knocking Chris Burke on his ass, the way Oswalt knocked down Eckstein. Need to get a fire started in the bullpen to they'll quit pitching so damned tentatively and start challenging people. We need a little swagger.

            I wouldn't start JRod either because of that ridiculous wall in LF. If in Busch, then yeah, but that guy gets lost when he doesn't have to worry about running into shit.

              Not time for something bold. We played a horrible game against a great pitcher and were right there until the eighth inning. And it was the first loss of the postseason.

              Stay the course. Thousand points of light.

                Bat the pitcher 8th?

                  He should fill out a lineup card that includes a DH. That would wow 'em.

                    I think you tip your hat. I was at the game last night, and I thought Oswalt looked terrific. He didn't earn 20 wins for nothing. I wouldn't change a thing -- unless we can get Cedeno back - wasn't he always good against Clemens? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img]

                        Oh, and by the way, I thought Mulder really battled last night. Didn't have his best stuff, but gave the Cards a chance to win. No fault there.

                          He was terrific. I'll take the same effort next time, with the defense we've grown accustomed to.

                            Same here. What a brilliant trade. Adam Dunn sucks.

                              I say the GOOCH needs to get a start. Four for eight against Clemons is nothing to scoff at. I expect him to replace Reggie in Game 3.

                              In addition, I wish TLR would juggle the lineup a little bit. Maybe have Nunez or the Taguchi bat second. Drop Jimmy to clean up. And, I KNOW. Jimmy had a bad night last night. But, we need Walker out of the 4 slot, and Jimmy hits the crap out of the ball at MM.
