Still have to wonder if we bringing in Bertrand because we have confidence in Targett and we have other things to spend our money on?  Or is this yet another cheapskate move?

I've decided it's this. It's both. Cheapskates AND they have confidence in Targett. Maybe Bertrand starts the year as our #1 but Targett ends the year as the #1.

That's right.  Funny, I'd forgotten that both of them did art for OK Cola back in the 90's.  I remembered Clowes did, but I'd forgotten there were others.

Did anybody else ever try that stuff?  I thought it was pretty good.

Agreed.  The infield lineup of Todd Frazier, Ramon Santiago, Zack Cozart, Skip Schumacher, and Brayan Pena from SS to 1st is horrible

Fix'd.

Yeah, with Phillips and Votto out the line up they are putting out there is comically bad.  Almost Cubs-esque.

They were probably already short a power bat, now with Bruce sucking (and Votto and Phillips seemingly fading) they are short two bats.  And now also a MI bat.  They would have had to give up too much for a power hitter, but they really should have gotten off their ass and traded for a second baseman.  Wouldn't have taken much to get Bonifacio from the Cubs, for example.

They do have some guys who will be better next year like Hamilton, and probably the two stud SP prospects.  And some OF help from the farm the year after.  So it's not as dire as it seems, but they're going to have to be active this offseason and make a couple smart moves.

Yeah, they are kind of similar.  Clowes is more cartoon-y/ugly, maybe. 

Clowes and Burns were/are the two big indie comics illustrators of Gen-x.  Burns did the album cover for Iggy Pop's Brick by Brick.

Thoughts on Ryan Bertrand?

Probably over-rated because he played at Chelsea.  Then under-rated because he had to play at crappy Villa.  I'm guessing he really isn't awful because Chelsea keeps him around.  But he can't be very good since they won't even consider playing him.

The few times I have seen I would say he is pretty fast and somewhat dangerous going forward, but sketchy in defense.  And not that smart.  Maybe somewhat like Jason Puncheon?  Like an slightly below average to average-ish Premier League player.  Still has potential to improve.

We would be laughing at him last year.  But now?  *sigh* Yeah, not a bad loan.  If we get relegated, he won't be the reason why.  Decent fallback option should Targett fail also prevents us from having to overuse him.

Still have to wonder if we bringing in Bertrand because we have confidence in Targett and we have other things to spend our money on?  Or is this yet another cheapskate move?

Is the art and writing done by the same person?  The art reminds me of Daniel Clowes.
