Golden opportunity for Brad Hawpe to make an impression with runners on first and third with 1 out but he K'ed swinging.


Uh-oh. I smell an opportunity to "rant" about productive ABs and two strike hitting approaches . . :lol:

Marte with a line drive single after Barmes flies out.

Walker barely missed a HR and flies out to the wall - Marte was on the run, which I was a little more interested in, but that's the second out.

Marte takes off again but on this pitch McCutchen grounds to third to end the inning.

Quick 1-2-3 for Wandy in the 4th with Cole due up in the 5th (I believe).

And likewise a quick 1-2-3 for Tampa's Juan Sandoval (who is blind in his right eye).

Gerrit Cole coming up.

Cole gives up a lead-off walk (full count count that ended with check swing) to Desmond Jennings who then proceeds to steal two bases during the next AB. He strikes out the next batter, and Escobar flies out for a shallow sac fly, careless throw attempt by Brad Hawpe who is having an awful game. Luke Scott flies out to Marte to end the inning.

Hawpe strikes out for the second time (in addition to his error and awful throwing attempt on the sac fly last inning).

McKenry with a single to left, but Barmes grounds into a DP.

Will report on Cole's last inning here and that'll be it for me.

Cole gives up a base hit up the middle but gets out unscathed.

Sounds like it is time for Brad Hawpe to retire.

Seriously, WTF are we doing wasting even one at bat on this guy when we have at least three guys fighting for RF playing time???

Enough with the favors to former players from Colorado.

"At least" three indeed, I'd say there are objectively four who are competing for that job - Snider/Tabata/Presley/Sands. Thought I don't seriously foresee Presley getting any more playing time than any of the other three.

Just plain stupid to give Brad Hawpe playing time. You need to let these guys battle for that position, not let Brad Hawpe walts around out there.
