Why I think Paul DePodesta won't keep up his current pace (was: Why Paul DePodesta's blog will not last)

New, 29 comments

I'd love it if Paul would blog for a while, but unfortunately for him... He's too famous. He's an idol for baseball nerds. As far as anybody can tell, he's the guy in the front office who's not the GM, not the head of operations, not the head of scouting... really not anybody if he just happened to be some guy. However, he's Paul DePodesta and while he's none of those things I mentioned, he's everything I mentioned.

 

However, his blog has attracted what every blog must eventually attract... Rather than explain what it's attracting, I will just show you .

Paul - how could management go into the season with the notion that the Padres OF could compete with the other rivals. Colorado and LA have 4 very good OF's while AZ has 3 solid ones. How is management going to address this area in the short and long-term?

OK... Kinda semi-aware of what's going on in the rest of the NL West... Hark, a response:

"Colorado and LA have 4 very good OF's"

LA has 2 good outfielders (in Kemp and Ethier), and 2 overpriced and overrated outfielders in Jones and Pierre.

Which is true enough. OK. Let's move on... or not...

DP4 - is Giles not an overpriced, overrated OF? Whose OF would you rather have, Pads or Dodgers?

Paul - is their a website that tracks number of guys LOB? How would Khalil stack up against all players?

and then later...

How is Giles not overpaid? He made $10 million in 2007 and drove in 51 runs? McNaulty could have put up the same numbers and made $200k.

Whenever they need a big hit, Giles looks at 4 pitches and lumbers down to 1b. What a joke. Jason Bay would look great in LF.

URGH. Bosnia, if you're a Gaslamp Baller, go get a drink of water and stand in the corner for a bit. If not, URGH. I know this might make me sound like smug baseball guy, but seriously... URGH.
