SF and NL are WS Champs!

Despite feeling torn last week about who to root for my NL roots came thru in the end as I found myself very happy to see the Senior circuit beat the AL.

Ya gotta hand it to Frisco a team that has FOUR home grown starters in it’s postseason rotation - the only guy who was left out was mega-free agent Zito.

Maybe one day we’ll have a similar success story…

Now word comes down there are NO managerial interviews scheduled for this week which instantly makes a Wally fan like BMF nervous about my candidate getting the gig. No interviews isn’t bad news per say it’s just that I’m not sure Backman will get an interview at all so this feels like a step backwards for Wally.

    Right now the Manager is not the highest priority for the team.

    Alderson needs to get the front office in order and clean out the disfuctionality.

    Sandy then needs to figure out what the realistic expectations are for Santana’s return. He needs to decide what to do with Beltran, I’d like to keep him, but wouldn’t be upset if a trade was made. If Beltran stays, he needs to be open to moving to right.

    He needs TWO starting pitchers. You can’t expect Santana to be back, Gee and Mejia aren’t serviceable at this point.

    He’s gotta figure out if he sits on the young talent he has now and look to 2012 to win, or does he trade away Davis, Thole and others to get proven Vets.

    We need a everyday 2nd baseman and a strong utility infielder.

    We need a strong RH bat of the bench that can play multiple positions, perhaps the return of Ty?

    He’s got to figure out what to do with Perez and Castillo, I understand if they are with the team come ST, but there is no way they should make the opening day roster.

    Realistically the line up has potential to hit, but that depends greatly on a bounce back by Bay, healthy Beltran and Reyes and continued growth by Thole, Davis and Pagan. Sadly, that’s a lot of “ifs” and it’s kinda similar to whats been said for years now.

    I like having Murphy, Carter, Feliciano, (Wiggenton) and maybe Turner, Evans or Pridie on the bench.

    With a Manager who can manage a bullpen, the late innings should be good with a few small tweaks…

    The real problem is the rotation, Pelf is nothing more than what he’s shown us. Dicky is good, but he’s going to come back to earth a little and Neise should improve on what he did in 2010, but without Santana you got two big holes and no ace. Lee would be nice, but no way should the Mets pay him 25-30 mil for 5-7 years.

    Just goes to show that when it really comes down to it:

    Good Pitching beats good hitting!!!

    I hope we are able to get a decent starting pitching staff next year.

    I love that they all came from within the system.

    Lets take a lesson from the Giants.
