    I'd rather be a 1/2 game out, than 3 1/2.

    We could be 1.5 games up if this team could win a series.

    Watching Angels-Rangers and Dempster looks terrible. Good job by Ned not to bite on him because honestly, he isn't much better than Capuano or Harang.

    Imagine if Ned would have traded Allen Webster for Dempster and this was Dempsters first start (He's getting his ass kicked)? I think we would have all ripped our own hair off.

    Dempster is obviously better than this, he's a very solid middle of the rotation starter, but man it just seems like it'd be a Ned move to trade Webster for Dempster. Ha,!

    Haha, I understand hating on Ned cause of his past but you have to give Ned SOME credit. Again, Kasten is good at overall mindsets/hiring+firing/revenue, but in terms of negotiations and understanding talent, Kasten has no experience in that. If anyone besides Ned was the one pushing hard to say no to this it was Logan (who I'm sure has a big say in this). It's hard to tell who influenced who and what not, cause it's never Ned acting alone on anything. I'm not trying to defend Ned to the death, just saying in the end it was him holding the ground saying No to this.

    Now lets hope Kasten gives Ned the green light on Cliff Lee!

    lol it was tongue in cheek. But Kasten did say he doesn't like top prospects for rentals
    Ned does shit though. Like why the fuck was he trying to get Glen Perkins?

    but really, im glad Ned didn't do it either. I was getting nervous. We might even see Webster soon as it is

    I fully expected Dempster to get his ass kicked the rest of the season to make up for his phenomenal start, that's why I was so against trading for him.

    Ned was gonna do what kasten likely mandated. Get a rental for a rental price. Take up a spot in the rotation until de la rosa is ready to take over next season. The other reason is we may need the top 4 for the winter meetings.

    Dempster's lifetime stats in the AL are pretty horrid from what I've seen. And it is NOT a small sample size. He's gonna get lit up.

    Dempster has been SO overrated these past couple of months.

    That Texas - Anals series was so fucking ridiculous. What is it, beer league softball? No matter who pitched, no one could hold the other team down... how fucking lame that shit is. Even good pitchers were getting fucked up... CJ Wilson and Dempster, 8 runs allowed each! These guys are way better than average. Reminds me of Coors field back in the roid era... funking pisses me off.
