Are you going to tell me Yadier doesn’t drive in big runs? Are you going to tell me Goldie can’t hit? Are you going to tell me the second baseman and shortstops haven’t hit? Nolan Arenado? You don’t think he’s going to hit? You think Matt’s gonna to hit? You think Dylan's going to hit? You think O'Neill and Bader’s going to hit? The answer is ‘no’ to all those things?"

DAAAG! Not a good showing at all.

Trust in a long season and some tinkering.

Hmm almost like letting a bunch of talented players like Wong, Ozuna, Pham, Arozarena, and (even Fowler when compared to what out there) go was a bad decision.

Roster full of AAA guys. That’s not even an exaggeration.
None of those guys pitch.
All Justin Williams fault that we gave up 27 runs this series.

Helsley having a bad game. GABP results. The 12 runs doesn’t bother me as I know GABP in April isn’t any long term indicator. The strikeouts and [expletive] plate discipline is hard to stomach.

Nope, just Mo’s.

GABP and Coors results in April dont mean much to me. But plate discipline is an indicator of things.

Walks and wild pitches lead to runs in any ball park in any month. Can't put this loss totally on the offense. Did they fail to score enough runs today; sure. But they scored 11 Thursday and 6 Saturday. This lineup is going to score runs. Got to keep the other team off the board.

I think you might have missed the point of my post.

If you want to say Williams may never be good enough, I won’t disagree.

But the “roster full of AAA guys” comment just isn’t true.

I will chalk it up to a frustrated GDT comment.

10 for sure could be in AAA. And an argument for 12.

None of those guys pitch.
