Atlanta has lost three starters due to injuries, but the the manager and pitching coach have kept their jobs and the club is recovering. I wonder what the posts would sound like if they were our club.


This again is a prime example of ownership incompetance being shnookered to be left with the PCL as the only alternative left for them for a AAA affiliate. A place where offense is overvalued and pitching takes the hit.  This franchise can not get out of its own way, what a shame.

@cba62 You can get on Mets ownership for many thing, but I don't think this is one of them. What exactly did you want them to do when Buffalo decided to affiliate with Toronto?
