What's the best way to evaluate this weekend?
Should we look at the big picture?
Let's evaluate the weekend and the season this way:
"We should have won three games out of three and I ... blew two of them," Gagne said in a profanity-laced rant. "They brought me in to do a job and I'm not doing it. It's ridiculous. These guys play eight great innings and I go out there and blow it. It's a shame."
And my favorite, from TragiSox. M. Murphy is a buddy of mine from grad school. Give him some traffic, but be nice (we've still got ground to cover).
Theo made this trade to win himself those fucking headlines: "The Best Bullpen in Baseball Just Got Better" -- despite the fact that the trade was not in the best interest of the team. The bullpen has gotten much worse quickly, because Oki's role is now uncertain, and Gagne is pitching disastrously in key spots. And a great starting pitching prospect--Kason Gabbard--is somewhere else. All this so reporters wouldn't get on Theo like they did last year for not making a move before the deadline.
