Clueless Joe Should Be Fired Immediately

今天在 "Clueless Joe" 胡扯之後,Angels的Erick Aybar代替棒球之神對Juan "a pair of legs" Pierre執行了天罰,腦袋空空搞不清楚狀況的Torre在賽前記者會宣佈在不久胖子AJ回隊上後,legs將繼續擔任先發一棒左外野的工作,理由是"他表現的太好了"...
"He's (Pierre's) certainly been a player through this whole thing who's been a consistent guy, every day refuses to acknowledge bumps and bruises that he's nursing," Torre said. "He's been great, he really has. I can't think of any way to explain it."

"About half the month of April and right through the month of June he's been really great, and I can't ignore what a difference he's made," Torre said.
我們看看legs和AJ這兩隻廢物今年在Dodgers的成績:
legs PA297 .277/.327/.318 17BB/17K OPS+ 70
AJ PA154 .165/.273/.271 20/45 2HR OPS+ 43
(~Jun29)

而那該死的legs在Furcal受傷後就不斷的打一棒,他打一棒時的成績則是:
legs as 1st 219 .256/.294/.290 10/14 OPS .583 sOPS+ 59
(~Jun29)

這種鳥蛋成績被Torre稱讚是"consistent guy",應該是"consistent terrible sucker"才對吧?而Torre竟然要讓如此垃圾的廢物繼續在打擊已經不佳的Dodgers打一棒,他不是白痴我才不信。

而相較之下兩位被Torre排擠的年輕人今年的表現雖然都是career low,但他們的成績仍有:
Kemp PA306 .284/.331/.436 20/81 7HR OPS+ 99
Ethier PA283 .272/.337/.424 23/38 7HR OPS+ 98
(~Jun29)

是很爛沒錯,但這兩位可是Dodgers隊上主要的攻擊砲手,一但失去他們,已算貧弱的火力會不會繼續弱化到挑戰2003年Dodgers團隊OPS+ 84的隊史最爛(LA Dodgers,不包括Brooklyn)成績呢?且相較於前面兩位又貴又沒屁用的廢物,連瞎子都知道要派誰上場才對不是嗎?

好在今天棒球之神附身Erick Aybar,在一個牽制的動作裡衝撞到legs的左膝,讓他不得不退場驗傷,也暫時讓Torre的計劃無法得逞。

天祐躲人。

真希望legs的腿能斷掉。

另一方面,該死的Clueless Joe所做的壞事還不只這樣,在LaRoche被叫上來之後,他最常坐的位置竟是板凳,不論之前被鳥爛LA媒體亂捧的Blake DeWitt陷入多誇張的低潮中:
DeWitt in June PA81 .176/.235/.216 5/17 OPS .451 sOPS+ 22
LaRoche in June PA 29 .231/.310/.385 3/3 OPS .695 sOPS+ 86
(~Jun29)

我不懂,現在Clueless Joe的表現比當年被Dodger fans轟走的Jim Tracy差不到那裡去,他們都拒絕使用表現較佳的球員,反而讓表現差但他們喜愛的球員繼續上場。甚至比多少還願意增加年輕球員上場機會的Grady Little來的差。一如預期,Torre不值3年14M的價錢,manager在棒球的世界裡負責的是和媒體的公關,能別亂出餿主意惡搞球場上的選手就算萬幸。

[Quote]"Torre also said he started Luis Maza at shortstop instead of Angel Berroa to get more offense from the position. Maza is batting .232, Berroa .149."

Excerpted from "Pierre to miss four to six weeks" at official site.

BTW, Repko lead off today, and got four strike outs.

Cough. Cough.

Ako said...

Jason Repko leading off for 4 Ks.... AJ is still out of lineup, and Pierre sucks....

We keep that going all year and we may be able to see Ned get fired.

Amen

According to Diamond Leung, "Rafael Furcal woke up with more discomfort in his back the morning after making his Class AAA debut and has been sent back to Los Angeles."

Cough. Cough.

Morikawa said...

Manager 大人的 comment 真的嚇到我了...

當初在季前,連 Tango 和 MGL 兩位 sabermetric guru 都表示他們不認為 Torre 會和 Little 一樣去給 Pierre 那麼多 playing time,所以個人也很自然的認為 Torre 會是一項加分 ... 結果現在別說是眼鏡 ... 我已經看得連 "眼睛" 都要掉出來了!

dufflin@ptt.cc said...

According to Diamond Leung, "Dodgers' Jones could return this week."

LOL

to dufflin:
On Maza & Berroa:
In fact, Torre almost has no other options for his starting SS. Both Berroa and Maza suck. Berroa is a player even the Royals doesn't want, and Maza is a career minor leaguer who everybody but Ned doesn't want.

On Furcal:
Well, he will undergo another surgery for removing his herniated disc and might return... well, 8 weeks later, at least.

Someone shoots Stan Conte, please.

And On AJ:
Somehow our Clueless Joe said he believes that AJ would go back batting healty and reduced his weight... ugh... Anybody care about Joe's words now?

to ako & dufflin:
On Repko:
I don't like Repko much, as I see him only as a 4th (or 5th?) OF.

Ah... He has good speed and a better arm than "a pair of legs"... ugh... you say everybody has better arm than "a pair of legs"? That's true.

to jenweichen:
我不太管中文新聞方面的事情,反正他們有真本事要第一手消息的能力不強,多半是報人家報過的東西拿來抄,再加油添醋亂搞。

Torre sucks是個不爭的事實,實在沒必要再多拿爛文章當笑話看。

to Morikawa:
我本來就對Torre沒什麼期待,現在受到的反差傷害也不大,不過他硬是冰了很多年輕人,也發表過多對年輕人不滿的偏見。

He needs to go.

1. Pierre掛掉之後就連勝
2. 該邊痛跑回去守游擊了...會是戰力加分嗎lol

dufflin@ptt.cc said...

If you guys wanna sth. to curse, that's it:

"Dodgers need to play the Angels' brand of ball" (from LA Times, by Bill Plaschke, available at http://www.latimes.com/sports/baseball/mlb/dodgers/la-sp-plaschke4-2008jul04,0,7198781,full.column )

I'm totally overwhelmed.

How can a brain-death guy like this one write columns for a living?

madboy said...

to stalin:
1. legs是自動出局數呀,他打一棒的OBP僅 .294...
2. 當然是升級,Nomar躺著打都大贏,我前回文就說了,Berroa是連爛隊Royals都不要的廢物,Maza則是全聯盟都不要的廢物。

to dufflin:
Bill Plaschke sucks. Everyone but the McCourts knows that.

And he needs to attend English composition class at middle school again.

Nomar打全壘打了

dufflin@ptt.cc said...

"Torre on lead-off spot," available at http://sportsblogs.latimes.com/sports_baseball_dodgers/2008/07/i-mentioned-in.html .

He mentioned OBP (that's cool); but he also said "in Juan's case, you can accept a little lower on-base percentage....."

Cough, cough.

Starberry said...

Meloan for Blake... oh god...

J-Train said...

And Carlos Santana is said to be a good prospect too.

And the Dodgers(or Ned Colletti) are trying to get rid of Andy LaRoche...
