free agent class looking very thin for the offseason. tulowitzki needs hip surgery. front office has shown no willingness to spend, no willingness to make trades. i believe in developing from the minor leagues like we are doing, but at some point how much losing can we endure? something has got to give or i'm sad to say i have a bleak outlook and bad feeling about next year as well. pretty sad when the season is over after the first pitch.

The Mets need Joe Bu, hats for bats... It worked for Pedro Cerrano in the movie

Nice to see TD reach double digit HRs. You can say a lot about the kid and his development but you sure as hell can't say he ever hits a cheap one. I was hoping he could hit at least 15 before the season started and he still may get there. good sign for next year when combined with his increased average since returning from AAA.

Maybe one of these years they'll win a home game against Washington.  lol.  Just embarrassing.


The lack of fundamentals and ability to produce with runners on base just never ends with this team. 


Meaningful games in September?  Yeah, ok.

@thecasuaLGM  He's got the most power of any right handed hitter currently on the team.

@thecasuaLGM Absolutely. Some people just needed to have some patience with him.

@Eric Vierow  What can you do?  They're just not worth the aggravation.


I guess for those of us who have had enough of TC, losses like this are good.  It sounds like the only way he's not back next season is if the team completely falls apart over the last seven weeks of the season.


Of course, the owners aren't going anywhere, so . . .

@Zott Steven Wilson is one everyone needs to bow down to. The guy is a genius, reminds me a bit of Devin Townsend in the way that whatever they touch seems to turn to gold.
