    Didn't think so. I'll see you again tomorrow night around the top of the ninth."

    The fact that McCourt has vetoed a lot of Ned's trade proposals speaks volumes about his confidence in him.

      How much of this mess is Colletti's fault and how much of it is McCourt's fault? I truely believe that Colletti did a good job recovering from the DePodesta era. I think the only mistake that the front office has made so far was the Jones signing. I'm not saying this because he stinks and probably has more K's than Billingsly does pitching! We didn't need him! The Jones signing just created a mess in the outfield. We already had three good outfielders, why did we need four? If Pierre was a liability, why couldn't we have moved Kemp to CF and Pierre to LF? Heck, if that didn't work out, I'd still be happier with Jason Repko in CF rather than Jones. What do Kemp, Ethier, and Young have to do in order to get some playing time over Jones? Restructure their contracts and make $18 mill a year? Last offseason, we should've made a serious run at a power hitting 3rd baseman/corner infielder. Nomar would've proved to be a great utility guy to come off the bench and spell the starters and also keeps him fresh. Let's go after some power. Too bad someone won't take Jones off our hands. Derek Lowe would also be someone to shop only because he's a free agent and I really don't see the Dodgers bringing him back.
      In a way, I'm glad we didn't win the C.C. rental sweepstakes. Yeah C.C. would've given us a strong rotation. Dang C.C., Billingsly, and Kuroda sound nice! But giving up LaRoche for a rental isn't really a good idea. Unless C.C. would've agreed to some kind of extension I'm glad we stayed put.

        Colletti's made more than one boneheaded move, djpassion. What about the Schmidt signing? Everyone in the league knew he was a huge injury risk, if not already crippled. Jones hit under .240 last year while not being on the disabled list. If a guy does that poorly healthy, why would you think he'd improve? Let's not forget ridiculous end of season disasters (Wells, anyone?) or the fact that Ned constantly keeps hiring over the hill Giants to play for us because he's their poker buddy. He has got to go.

        And trading Lowe is certainly not the answer. He's the best starter we have and his value is 2x as much in the playoffs which it looks like we're headed for. Giving up Lowe for the rest of the year in order to acquire a shortstop that hits below league average is not the way to go. Put Nomar at SS, Blake at 3B, and hold on to Lowe.

          Coletti has 'recovered' from the DePodesta era? Good lord.
