“We don’t match up with Bard. We brought [Bard] in in the seventh just because who’s coming up. There’s a couple of reasons. One is if he has a real quick inning, we’re going to send him right back out. Then the other one was to help Oki, rather than flip-flop then. Both were going to have to probably pitch, unless Bard has a real good inning." -- Tito trying to spin the botched move of putting Bard in early and taking him out after 18 pitches

It Appears That Shipped Has Sailed
"...can't believe the front office just fiddled this summer while Rome burned and we flushed an entire season and $150M down the toilet by thinking we could tread water with Bill Hall playing second and Kevin Cash catching and David Ortiz batting third against lefties and J.D. Drew playing every day against lefties and Eric Patterson and Daniel Nava and Dusty Brown, et al. It was so [expletive] obvious when the Laser Show and V-Mart got hurt that we had to go get a real bat, Jason Werth level, who would still start when we got healthy, but instead we did [expletive] nothing and buried ourselves. It was like we had no front office, the Jack Hannahan blockbuster notwithstanding." -- An understandably apoplectic Kevin H. on the lost season
