Hey, look, I like Gabby and think he should play against lefties most of the time.

But, answer me this OPS men. When was the last HR Gabby hit? JM?


I highly doubt that HR numbers would trump starting a player who has slugged .294 vs. LHP on the year (Morneau) over one slugging 548 against LHP (Gaby) and reaching base in close to half of his PAs against them. Furthermore, a mere 2 (two) of Morneau's HRs this year have came against LHP.

To me it's just Hurdle's usual doing on rewarding a guy based on merit after Morneau's 4-hit game. Similar things have happened all year, Gaby getting a ton of time against RHP in April after his strong spring, etc.

I got the chills with the crowd chanting "MVP".

Unreal defense by the Buccos tonight!

Fine job Jeff Locke.

An insurance run or two would be nice.

Really fast game, though. Holy crap.

Terribly played by the RF. That allowed Barmes to score. Would be nice to see Morneau tack on one here. Preferably 2 if it's a gap shot.
