The Do-It-To-The-Dbacks Tred: Maintaining The Magic 


If there's one thing I've learned in all my years of tredding, it's that you do not want to let SportWarrior down.

OK. Its Stults turn to keep the party train rolling.

Delgado doesn't walk many but is hittable ... batting average against is over .300. Might be a day for going out and attacking.

Picked up a game in the standings last night. Hope to do it again tonight.

I still don't like these lineups that Black is putting out...I think having Quentin, Headley, Gyorko, and Alonso together in the order is good, but I don't like the order. I might be tempted to put Gyorko in the two spot, Alonso 3rd, Quentin 4th, and put Headley 5th, I think. Having Alonso hit 2nd would be intriguing too..

With Quentin 3rd, it at least gets him a guaranteed at-bat in the first inning though...

This is the lineup that has been most effective of late.  I don't mind seeing Headley in the two-hole.  He seems to be doing fairly well there.  Quentin is heating up so moving him up makes sense to me.

Stults just gave up a couple runs in 1st. Should of traded him while he had some value.

Seems like the DBacks aren't fooled by Stults tonight

The good news is that I picked Hill up on waivers today on my fantasy team.

Well... this isn't going too well. Maybe all the tred magic leaked into the Beer tred?

Stults just looked flat and got pounded.

As per Rotoworld:

Jedd Gyorko went 0-for-3 on Friday and is 4-for-38 with one RBI since coming off the disabled list.
Worse, it's 4-for-38 with no extra-base hits, no walks and a caught stealing in his only attempt. If this goes on for much longer, the Padres may want to send him down for a few weeks and go to Logan Forsythe at second base.

He's looked pretty awful since being back here. I doubt they send him down, but 4-38 is awfully hard to deal with out of the 5 spot

The Padres didn't look like they wanted to be there tonight.

What a dismal game.

But my tred relationships never last. I'm good for a one-night stand, and that's it.

A lot of you pick on Black for his in-game decisions. I'm wondering if there's something broader going on. This team seems rudderless. They are so up and down.

Let's hope they can point the arrow up for tonight's game. And someone else man the dread. I'm going to run. Like I always do.

All teams, even horrible teams, you can pick out a few bright spots and they can win once in a while in the strange game of baseball. Hallmark of a bad team is inconsistency.

I think that's the part that frustrates me most.

One moment, they are indeed bad. The next, they look pretty good. Then they look bad again. I recognize that they are not a good team. But they seem like they should be better.

Why should they be better?  They don't have a #1 or #2 starter.  Starting the season with Volquez as your #1???  Marquis as your #2?? Expect rookies that never threw many innings in one season in the minors to pick up the workload?  Tax your bullpen until their arms are dead?

I would have liked to seen Kevin Towers stayed on and had management insist that he didn't have say so over drafting and player development.  He could build pitching staffs out spare parts and pull off some lopsided trades.

Don't mistake the word "good" for the word "better."

I typed that they seem like they should be better for the very obvious reason that they often play better. They just can't maintain that level of play.
