Next year? How about opening day starter for the playoffs! I would say you start Baker, you want someone with good control.

They will make it, besides an ace also means "best pitcher", not just the opening day starter next season, but that is the best definition.

And with all that being said, Slowey is our hottest pitcher right now. They all look good, just need the run support and defense to make the playoffs.

All 5 starters have sub-4.00 ERA right now. For the first time, I really don't know who our 4th and 5th guys would be. I'd have to put Liriano and Perkins in the top 3. Toss up between Barker and Slowey, followed by Blackburn. Remember 2006 when Liriano and Radke went down? We had Santana and then a couple of 4th and 5th-guy type left. If we could just get a reliable set-up guy back. Just think if Neshek comes back solid next year. 2 WS in the ROW!!!!

I hate to say this but I can see Smith trading one of starters this offseason.

If Liriano can get control of more of his pitches he would be the starter with no questions, but your starter will be the pitcher with the best control, Baker! Liriano has the best potential to be the best, but he needs to have all of his pitches going where he is trying to throw them!

I think they may start Baker, Slowey or Perkins but if it were me I'd start the guy who has Won 13 out of his last 14 games and has an ERA around 2.00 in that stretch.

I like Baker and FL. Take Baker becasue he seems to have more control and go deeper into a game. Also- Baker was one hitter away and one walk aaway from a perfect game/no hitter last year at home agst KC..BUT FL when on,, thou not as good after the TJ, is still very good.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
