I honestly think if they cannot rise up and win one of the last two Robin should go. It's the manager's job to keep the team motivated. Well there's one last bit of work to be done and if the team just rolls over and slides to 100 that's at least part on Robin.

With this team, I wouldn't be shocked if they found a way to lose 101 games despite there not being enough games left.

I don't want to act like I think Robin's a good manager (he's not), but I don't think motivation has anything to do with it. The roster talent is abysmal and we've played good teams with a lot to play for recently.

Honestly, what's the difference?

If you want him fired for losing 100, you should want him fired for losing 99.

Call it my line in the sand. They got two days to win 1 game. They had 7, they've blown the first 5 chances.

I don't see it any different than a "if they don't make the playoffs" ultimatum. I mean if 7 days ago this team needed one win to become a wild card and had lost the first 5 tries, this would be a no-brainer decision...

Well, I'm going to the game tomorrow to try to avert the 100th loss. If they could win tonight, that'd take some of the pressure off me.

Considering we face Cy Chen tomorrow, I'd say today's the day that decides whether or not we lose 100.

I think if they get 100 losses that should warrant a 100 patch on their uniforms next year. Bulletin board material on their uniforms.

Maybe, but Quintana is going against Chen. Quintana has been our second best pitcher this season. If he's on, he can match Chen pitch for pitch. Naturally, it is a given Chen will shut us down. We couldn't beat him when we were a decent team.

Rookie League ? Damn Nell, you are being much too nice. Much more like the 1st day of T- Ball tryouts filled with diaspera of urchins everywhere, falling over each other, crooked oversized ball caps,running the baese willie nilly, sitting on gloves as well as bases, and infield dirt runny nosed stained faces, Tee bat thumping and throws tragetoraly challenged tossed..

As Voodo puts it... Sucking with style !
