    Yeah, but we need him for the playoffs when Betts and Freeman and probably everyone else will definitely suck.

    And I see no change from our vaulted lefty against left handed batters. … I really want Vesia GONE. Just zero faith he can get batters out when it matters

    Damn, we're lucky to be around during his tenure...and just think...he'll be around for 20 more years.
    At least.

    Spring Training... when a bunch of names that you've never seen before and may never see again put up absurd stats.

    If Vesia continues to stink in these games, can we get a lefty that actually gets left-handed batters out?

    I'd love to see Andy Pages take a big step forward this year.

    He is i
    Pages is one I am interested in watching his spring at bats. I am hoping he shows some patience. Cut down the strike outs and chases out of the zone. If he can just zero in on pitches in his zone then he should do well.

    too funny
    didn't know the game was on today and reading these posts would have thought we lost 20-4
    14 runs and 1 er from the staff is getting it done but this is a tough crowd!

    I have a feeling this year will have more of that than ever. The front office did well in giving us hope for the new year, but I for one have never been more cynical towards the guy leading them in the dugout, and that makes me expect the worse this season. I expect records broken this regular season and then an early exit again from the playoffs. Even this roster isn't Davey-proof.

    great post
    should expect more, but i’m still cautiously optimistic
    curious what prior can get out of glasnow, and what yamamoto can do this side of the pacific
    i like lux, but i think his defensive deficiencies could ultimately result in taylor (and rojas) getting a lot of opportunities
    obviously excited about ohtani
    but i honestly believe our best 2024 addition will be teoscar
    he won’t eclipse or even equal what shohei does, but imho he’ll be even better than expected
