    To be fair, for the last part of the year, Pierre has been doing an adequate job offensively.

    I also have been known to question some of Little's moves, but like others have said, in some cases he may have information that we don't.

    I think once the dust settles, we can chalk this season up to a Kings-like dependency on a relatively shallow talent pool, which was decimated by injuries.

    I, for one, am glad they didn't panic and trade the kids once the injuries hit. This is going to be a very, very good team possibly as soon as next year, and hopefully for a long time.

    We knew going in that this was a transition year, and maybe we'd have a shot at the playoffs. I think the end result is (unfortunately) probably about what we should have expected.

    But I like what the team is transitioning into.

    Rumor has it the only reason Colleti didn't trade the kids for rent-a-vets was because McCourt sided with Logan White and wouldn't let him. He basically got vetoed. That doesn't exactly give me a lot of confidence in the GM heading to the offseason. Maybe it was only a rumor but I remember reading it from a pretty respected baseball writer. There is probably some truth to it.

    Unfortunately, the first half counts just as much (actually, it counts a decent amount more... 89 games pre-AS break vs. 71 games post-AS break) in the standings as the second half does. Let's not cherry pick stats.

    If Pierre performed the entire year at a .309/.356/.379 clip it would be a much different story.

    Or just bad offense.

    The injuries were in our pitching staff and they still turned out to be pretty damn good.

    Here I agree with you... if we add offense.

    The kids have been a big bright spot.

    I think the overall pitching stats are skewed - the #5 spot in the rotation was an almost automatic loss much of the year. (No, I didn't look it up, it's a gut feeling. Prove me wrong if you like.) Thanks to Bills stepping up, that wouldn't have happened with either Schmidt OR Wolf healthy all year.

    On the offensive side, Nomar is broken and Furcal was playing hurt all year; that's pretty significant. 3B is a bit of a problem right now, let's hope LaRoche or some trade or FA (I won't say who) solves it.

    I'm with you here. It would have really sucked to trade the good young players for a run at it this year and then drop out. We do have a chance to be real good for a while, providing these guys stay healthy and we can keep them all. We'll need to add pitching but so will everyone else in baseball.

    I didn't think it was possible for Loaiza to be worse than Tomko but after tonight's abortion Colletti can not honestly be thinking about bringing him back next year, can he?

    Colletti just keep throwing snake eyes with every player acquisition this season. Pretty amazing.

    We can say all we want about Pierre, Little, Loiza, 5th starter, etc. but Broxton's troubles the end of this year are the reason the Dodgers aren't in the playoffs. If he doesn't blow those games, the Dodgers would probably be very close a wild card spot.

    Dude, I'm stating a mere fact. The Dodgers were in it until he started struggling.

    Do you need to be bitch slapped to understand that?
