AIM Chat Snaps Streak

Title Track

See here. Couple of quick thoughts:

1) Brian Giles called out on the appeal to first is one of the top five worst calls of the year in any sport, period.

2) Peavy is amazing. 8.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 10 K, 0 HR

3) The AIM chat is seriously good karma.

4) The recent eight game losing streak shouldn't negatively impact the team this year and may positively impact them in future years. The NL West cannot be lost at this point. It just isn't going to happen. That being said, Los Angeles and Arizona look like they are in it and thus cannot sell off players for prospects that might have helped them down the line. How's that for a silver lining?

5) I hate that Cardinal fan who was sitting next to the mic. What a jerk.

6) The only people who think there is a shot in hell that the Padres won't win the NL West are Padre fans.


With absolutely zero justification to follow, here's how I'd fill out the lineup:

Vs. RHP:

C Fick
1B Sweeney
2B Loretta
3B Randa
SS Greene
LF Klesko
CF Nady
RF Giles


Vs. LHP:

C Fick
1B Nady
2B Loretta
3B Randa
SS Greene
LF Young
CF Jackson
RF Giles

Basically, I'd have five "every day" starters in Fick, Loretta, Randa, Greene and Giles. Sweeney and Nady would platoon first. Klesko and Young would platoon left. And Nady and Jackson would platoon center. So, I suppose I'd actually have six "every day" starters, Nady would just alternate between center and first.

In 2005:
Fick vs RHP: .284/.337/.432
Fick vs LHP: .353/.476/.353

Nevin vs RHP: .271/.297/.407
Nevin vs LHP: .228/.319/.392

I'm thinking that for whatever reason, Nevin's just not the guy we used to know. I say let Fick have the position until he hits a wall.

I think the AIM chat put us in some sort of bizzaro universe where Richard writes out a lineup straight from the gut and I tear it down using carefully researched statistics.

By tomorrow, it'll be back to normal and I'll be writing crazy theories and Richard will be providing reams of data.

Interesting (& frustrating) how Josh Alley is doing poorly @ Ft. Wayne after doing so well @ Eugene ... http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/app/milb/stats/stats.jsp?n=Alley%20%20RF&pos=&sid=milb&t=p_pbp&did=milb&pid=488660 ... playing baseball must not be as easy as it looks :-)

Nice of Nevin to get himself tossed. At least you got David Ross. Did I hear right, did you get Ron Villone too?
