Re: The REAL Official 2015 MLB Bitch & Moan Thread
So, the Braves gutted the team before the start of the season.  Most everyone wrote them off and rightfully so.  Surprisingly, they stayed fairly competitive and were about .500 at the All Star break.  No one was running away with the division so the second half could have been fun to watch. 

 :facepalm:

Holy crap.  Not only have they sucked monkey balls since the break, but management has continued the wholesale raping of the roster.  Juan Uribe...gone....Chris Johnson....see ya'....Jim Johnson...Bye Bye....Louis Avilan....Hasta la vista....and now Alex Wood....rear view mirror. 

I'm now officially in Token mode. I'll check back with them in 2016.
Surely not everybody was Kung Fu fighting.

The Mets thank you for some batting assistance.

Agreed!  They're all assholes.  Wait, what?

I really want to punch Gonzo in the forehead, because nobody knows who Bartman is if he catches a routine grounder right after the incident.
Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

Re: The REAL Official 2015 MLB Bitch & Moan Thread
Glad somebody has something to pay attention to the rest of the season.  I said earlier I'm done with the Braves until 16'.  I am.  But a couple of nights ago, I'm flipping channels and come across them just as one of them hits a double and a couple of runs score.  I stopped for a few minutes and watched the next 3 batters.  All made outs.  But the thing was, I had never heard of any one of them.

Arugula Tonsils Rodriguez

Manuel Ortega Castillo Jiminez Jones

Bobalubo Castinueves Finklestein

With the exception of the Marlins a couple of times, I've never seen a complete sell off a team like this.

Yep.....our rightful 3rd place in the AL West.  The Rays will probably pass us.

PM me your address, and I'll get you a St Louis Cardinals Hat.  You should be able to use it in most Octobers.

Re: The REAL Official 2015 MLB Bitch & Moan Thread
I still have my phone set to give updates on my favorite teams. So I still know what's going on with Atlanta even though I don't watch or really even pay attention to the updates. Today though, I get an update saying the Braves traded for Michael Borne and Nick Swisher?  I know those names. Why are we getting them?  Exactly what in the hell are we doing?  Are we in a pennant race and I don't know it?  I thought we were dumping everyone?

seriously???  We traded Bourne 2 years ago because he couldn't hit.  Swisher?  He's been a Yankme's mainstay for several years if memory serves.  What's the fudgeing plan?

Most of these guys are way past their prime and some of them never had one.  This guy's dead.

Re: The REAL Official 2015 MLB Bitch & Moan Thread
So the Cubs and Blue Jays are the hot streaking teams since the trade deadline with both at 9-1 in the last 10 games. The NL Central are sporting some dang good teams. The Cardinals, Pirates and the Cubs. The Cubs have just as good of a record as most other division leader yet they are in 3rd place in their own division.

The Cubs scare me.  They are going to be good for a long time.

Pirates are good too. Not sure about their longevity but they are pretty dang good right now. Maddon has put together a nice team in Chicago. Lots of young talent that could make some noise. Those two along with the Cardinals, looks to be setting up a real strong division for a long time to come.
