Trow Da Bums Out!

What a stupid stupid trade! I can't believe how dumb that trade is! What the hell is wrong with Jim Bowden trading for bums. If I wanted players to not get hits, I'd have just sent Bray to the plate. What a joke! How dare these stiffs wear our uniform, stinking it up like that? This trade was garbage. Did you see our pen? Now we don't have any pitching! Our pitching was doing really well before. Our offense was fine. Now we don't have offense. And our pitching stinks! How are we supposed to make the playoffs now! FLop is a bum! Dumbo Kearns is a bum. Bring back Bray!!11!1eleven!!!1

Why can't these bums be more like the players we had last year? They were teh best!!1 Preston Wilson knew what it took to be a National. He respected the team. He hit a home run in his first game. Ryan Drese respected the Washington fans, unlike those bumbs. He threw a two-hitter in his first game. Vinny Castilla delivered an RBI! Cristian Guzman had a hit! Why can't these no-talent assclowns be more like Endy Chavez? He went 2-4 with a double in his first start for the Nats last year!

If this team's going to make that second-half playoff push, these two stiffs better start playing more like these guys. Guys who really want it. Guys who know what it takes to win.


  • And let's not forget Brandon Watson's major league debut with that home run he hit in Houston. Talk about future talent, Cininati got it all!

  • I still believe Bowden should be on the same rail out of town with Tavares. I just read the Sunday Post interview with Tavares, where he is quoted (possibly within the same breath?):

    "And if you decide to keep [Soriano] and build up the team and farm system, by 2008 you'll be in a position to contend. This is a challenging marketplace. We aren't the Cubbies or Red Sox; you have to put a competitive team on the field." Tavares said the lack of an owner created a negative perception of the team that caused potential free agents to "reject any interest in us" and was the "main reason" for losing 5,000 season tickets from a year ago.

    I would also add that after 33 years of clamoring for the return of major league baseball, Washington-area fans should be ashamed at the attendance drop of nearly 5,000 per game. And it would be more of a decline if it wasn't for the three-game series against the Yankees that drew nearly 145,000. The standard rap against Washington and baseball all these years was "no blue-collar fan base, everyone goes to the beach on weekends, comes from somewhere else and still roots for their old team."

    My response had been "that's bunk" -- until I began seeing all those empty orange seats lately and began humming that old folk song: "Where have all the lawyers gone?"

    He acknowledges the need for a competitive product, then castigates the fans for not turning out when there isn't one? What a hypocrite. The door can't hit him in the ass fast or hard enough.

  • Wade: Yeah, he's an A-hole. The best thing you can say about him is that he served his MLB masters well. Douchebag.

    I'm sure his decision to raise ticket and parking prices when EVERY IDIOT (check my archives!) was saying that the attendance was going to drop had NOTHING to do with it. But when you're a Type-A redass (read: Ahole), you're not going to notice those little things. It's always everyone else's problem.

    Sure, he did well to make the transition, and it certainly wasn't an easy job, but that only goes so far.

    anonymous -- I THOUGHT about that one. For some reason, I thought that that was Kenny Kelley. But, yeah, the point stands. Why can't Kearns or Lopez be more like those guys? ;)

  • I'm workin hard. Taking one day at a time. Trying to take what is given to me. Not to rush things. Got to stay focused, keep my head in the game. See the ball, hit the ball. Hi mom, number one.

  • The Reds GM fleeced us. He is no dummy like Bowden is. He got rid of two flops and shored up his pen. This is the same GM who fleeced boy GM Theo Epstein by stealing Arroyo and cash for another worthless Bowden flop, Wily Mo Pena, who is now in the minors. Lordy, Lopez, when batting lefty, reminds me of Guzman and Kearns makes Preston Wilson look good.

  • I see that you've mastered sarcasm as well as I did in my post!

    Oh, wait....

  • Ghost...

    Are you sure Tavares's quote wasn't limited to the main reasons, in his opinion for the falling attendance?

    If I'm not mistaken - and I could be - the subsequent "castigation" came from the author of the article - George Solomon.

  • Jim, I'm pretty sure those were Tavares' words from the Post column. I should hope they're not Solomon's, as the article was not written as an opinion piece but as an interview.

  • According to, Pena was on the DL, not in the Minors.
