The Official Fire Greg Walker Thread

Francisco Liriano had another typical night, throwing 9 shut-out innings in an epic duel against another pitcher who has thrown a no-hitter in Edwin Jackson. The game put him on his way to 3.62 era, 200 strikeouts, 58 walks, a 14-10 record, a 1.263 whip, and put him in contention for the Cy Young award.

Oops! That was last year!

This year Liriano had a 9.13 era, a 1.0 walk to strikeout ratio, a 1-4 record, and a 1.9 whip. He came to the Cell with a 'new strategy' which of course was 'do everything the same except against the White Sox'. With 2 strikeouts to 6 walks, he followed his own strategy to great effect with a no-hitter and a shut-out.

Our offense is horrible against bad pitching and rookies so green that they were plucked from the farm minutes ago. We make zero adjustments mid game and our advanced scouting is probably non-existent. We lost two years of Carlos Quentin to his own mind-fucking. Gordon Beckham is off to another horrible start. Our infamous hitting coach's only crutch to lean on, Paul Konerko, is famous for his half season slumps as well although hes been doing well of late. The entire offense does horrible every April. If you can't even keep the players focused, then what are you here for?

I really couldn't imagine anything lower than this. We just got shut out and no hit at home by the team with the worst record in the league and by a pitcher with one of the worst numbers in the league this year. Enough effing cap tips.

So for something that should have been done in 2010. and 2009. and 2007.
