I'd rather give my love and money to the Kings.

Why do you give a frig if Padilla is the opening day starter? It's one game! Honestly, I don't get the outrage at this. It's against the Pittsburgh ****ing Pirates.

O, I'm not just pissed about that. Here's a short list.

Another thing, What's up with the Class war BS at the stadium? At Petco Park, you can go into whatever level you want. You have freedom to roam the park.
We let O dawg walk. Now we have a converted thirdbaseman and fatso Belliard. This Fatass is so fat that he plays in the outfield to chase down groundballs.
Can't wait too see the bloopers and one run leads given away this year. Did anyone realize that Fatso tore it up against subpar teams last year?
Manny vs Jaun
Screw Manny, Jaun Pierre filled in for Ramirez last year and kicked ass. And guess who we trade this year?
Randy Wolf, Didn't even offer arbitration to get some draft picks. WTH?!
The bullpen is not going to hold the fort this year. And if they do, they will again be burnt out by playoff time.
Have fatass play first base, And have James Loney start opening day. Why not? I would pay to see that ahahah Problem solved Ned.

I agree with most of that, but you're dead wrong on the Manny/Pierre thing. I've typed this out before, so I'm just going to copy and paste (this is from an argument with someone else so don't take anything in it offensively):
juan pierre sucks. please don't tell me i don't know baseball. i know the fact that he's regressed offensively since 2004, he's not a very good base stealer (75% success rate is considered break even), and he's really not that good of a bunter.
here's some proof for you. just remember that a 100 ops+ is considered league average.
2004 w/ florida 107 ops+
2005 w/ florida 84 ops+
2006 w/ chicago 82 ops+
2007 w/ la 77 ops+
2008 w/ la 75 ops+
so, yes, juan pierre does indeed suck. and, by the way, he hasn't hit .300 in a full season since 2004. he is not a .300 hitter.
2009 w/ la he actually posted a 105 ops+, but that is a heavily skewed stat because he did not play a full season. i would imagine you'll say something about juan pierre "saving" the dodgers while manny was suspended, so let me save you the trouble. here are his stats from the 50 games when manny was suspended:
Games 1-20: .425/.495/.598 1.093 OPS
Games 21-50: .244/.299/.283 .583 OPS
not only were his season stats carried by an incredible fluke hot streak during the first 20 games, for 60% of the time while manny was out pierre was ****ING TERRIBLE. .244/.299/.283 for a .583 OPS is not a respectable line any way you look at it.
look, i respect the fact that he's a hard worker and a great guy, but he's a ****ty baseball player. there's no way to get around that. juan pierre sucks.

Well I don't take anything offensively over the internet, well except for maybe censorship.
I hate stat arguments, because you can skew them however you want to make whatever point you want. i.e. cutting up his totals to make your point. I don't see Manny's totals or the Dodger's record after Manny took over. Where are those stats? Vin Scully said it best, "If you want to be right, then talk about stats." Ok. well maybe somebody else said that. Not too sure lol. The only stat i care about are the W's
I'm pretty sure when Juan was on base, the pitcher was completely oblivious to his 75 percent steal ratio. The game changed at that precise moment in time. The battery were playing two games at once, trying to keep him honest while focusing on the batter. It's one of my favorite plays in baseball. Furcal hasn't done that in awhile. The Dodger's have no speed. Kemp will steal bases like Shawn Green and then his speed will come to an abrupt end. Juan always had that threat even though his numbers weren't up to your par.
At least you didn't argument about his defense. You know what's sad? I freaking hate the doyers but I'm probably gonna end up watching most of their games or at least all the NL west games.
