    everyone knows that gardner is streaky as eff... it's what's holding him back from reaching the next tier of OF talents

    I know everyone loves to mention how awesome Gardner is- probably in part because of the fact he is a product of our farm- but the truth is that he is a useful, solid player but not great by any measure. He would be a great complimentary player on a very good team, but will be exposed when more is expected.

    Yeah, Mo would be the first to admit it. This was a tough, tough loss.

    Opening a thread for the purpose of calling Mariano Rivera a "bitch" is special.

    I just wondered if people would admit that St Mo blew the game today.

    I think anybody over the age of five with a rudimentary understanding of baseball would understand that Rivera blew a save today. his second blown save of the season. yet another reminder that he hasn't been perfect in his career.

    Still struggling with how that makes him a bitch or whatever.

    There used to be a team bitch thread after every loss. I really just wanted to see if people would post that Mo was the reason for the loss today. Not trolling as Jax has suggested.

    So, today Mo was the reason. Why belabor the point?

    He means "bitch" as in complain about the loss, not "bitch" as in calling somebody a bitch.

    so what do you make of him being consistently top 3 in WAR on the team over the past several years? his defense makes him a cornerstone of our team's success

    Tasteless topic. Rivera has been gold forever; but he's not God and he's not perfect. Fans saw what happened. Rivera felt bad. Nobody denies he blew the game. Maybe some more run support for Kuroda would have made using Rivera unnecessary. But to label him the "team bitch" is wrong and pathetic.

    Really? You're singling out Gardner?

    OPS over past 11 days (Combined: 0 HR):

    Hafner: .605
    Overbay: .647
    Wells: .654
    Almonte: .576
    Ichiro: .676
    Stewart: .644
    Adams: .617
    Nix: .511
    Cruz: .500
    Gonzalez: .438
    Almonte: .576

    BTW: Gardner has struggled the past 5 days, not 2 weeks. In the 9 days prior to those 5 days, he had a .960 OPS.

    You just supported JDPNYY's point regarding the hero threads.

    If its wrong to call a historical icon, like Mo, a "bitch" when he has a game-ending fail, then its equally wrong to call a player with no significant history, a "hero" for having a game-winning hit. One game doesn't make a bitch or a hero, which I believe, is why he mocks the hero threads.

    67th blown save. I'm amazed this guy still gets chances in the 9th.

    For that one single game it does.

    If a guy hits a HR game to win a game or makes an E to lose the game, he is the hero or goat for THAT game for some people.

    Whose saying it makes someone a hero or goat for other games, or that it defines his career or season.

    Keep it real.

    He mocks threads because he probably doesn't have anything better to do at the time.

    The only person (so far) supporting JDPNYY point regarding hero threads is you.

    I am sure there are others that find the hero thread a bit much so they do like you and don't post in them.
    Those that do are extremely happy that you don't.
