    Gibbons left Dickey in way too long today. Even after the Middlebrooks homer in the 5th, he still had him go for another 1/3rd of an inning.

    Looks like Reyes is gonna be out for a while with that ankle injury. It's a shame he was off to a hot start, and I feel like he was always the one to bail them out in plenty of occasions.

    Not only the best player so far, but he's the heart and soul of the team. We can only hope that him going down for an extended period somehow brings the team together and starts winning

    You're right, his loss could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Struggling players may realise the importance of getting their act together and do so. Good thing Lawrie is close to returning.

    I like Boni, but I really hope he gets on base enough with the hitters behind him. As for Cabrera, the dude can flat out hit. He looks very comfortable at the plate and seems to consistently have good at-bats

    I hope they get rid of Bonerface and Trashmus, call up Gose and trade those guys for a capable second baseman. The defense that Bonifacio has in the infield is disgraceful.

    We need speed in our lineup since Reyes is down, we need to keep our identity as a dangerous team with speed to make up for our lineup without a true leadoff hitter.

    The pitching is shaping up now we need to start producing runs, since we have Bautista on and off we need to rely on our speed.
    JP Arencibia is now one of the more dangerous hitters in all of baseball if he keeps it up.

    Move after move excited me in the off-season except the final one. John Gibbons. When he was fired last time, it was following some terrible offence. It's still early and I hope it doesn't continue but the offence is not looking good.

    I can't be bothered to watch this team. I'm not a fair weathered fan either. I just have no patience to suffer through 3 hours of top talented players looking like a shitty farm system squad. Gibbons is an issue, the players are an issue, and AA might be waaaaay over his head as a general manager. Something gotta give soon because I can't be the only fan who feels like this.

    Absolutely agree that something needs to happen .. and it would be a massive helping of crow for AA to eat if he had to fire Gibbons, after taking so much heat for the hiring. So I don't know if I can see that happening. One has to wonder what would be happening if we still had Reyes hot bat in the line-up though.

    AA did his job by assembling talent. I he decides to make a trade, who does he trade? Other than Edwin to some extent, every other player is under performing. So if it's not AA or specific player/s, it's clearly Gibbons.
