I'd rather see a hard hit ball to the gap than a walk. That's why the Bucs' have speed in OF.

Andrew is Hebner-esque in his awesomeness.

He would not be denied.

Of course some more everybody sucks on here. There is no way other humans could handle being near some of you for these games. Shoot the damn puck!

Cutch is really turning it on.

Back to back MVP?

As of now, he is MVP, tulowitzki won't win with his team sucking, maybe Stanton but cutch is the leader I would think

Stanton not starting in the field is laughable. He'll be a potent DH.

Cutch is in that small group of truly elite players that includes Kershaw, Stanton, and Trout (and 2-3 others if that). He's so ridiculously good. He and Trout should own the MVP voting for the next few years.

Wish some of the other guys would pick it up. He can't do it all himself. This win or the loss the night before could be defining moments of the season.

Pedro might make a good dh in the American league. But there comes a time when you aren't a rookie anymore and are expected to start becoming a complete ball player.and are expected to make routine plays and start coming through in the clutch. Pedro has a longway to go. And he may never get there.

Pedro makes an error that leads to two runs, and hits a three run homer.

Polanco goes 0-4 with three K's.
Harrison goes 0-4 with two K's
Sanchez goes 0-3.
Mercer goes 0-4 with two K's.
Watson gives up five consecutive hits and three runs.

Yep, this game is aaaallllllllllll about Pedro.


Yep but his error was the beginning of it. Every time he throws a ball into the upper deck it always comes back to bite us like bad karma. Every time. That error doesn't happen, it changes the game. Locke gets out of a jam, maybe Wilson never comes in. It totally changed the momentum of the game.

The reds are missing both votto and Phillips. This is the time to get them. They must take advantage of it. And we need to get some bullpen help.

Yep, it's always Pedro's fault.

If he doesn't hit a three run shot, they're never in the game at all.

Okay, who is this guy? This is not the same Locke as last season. He's more fearless and he's developed one of the nastier change ups in the game. Huge boost. Locke him up.


He's not walking nearly as many guys either.

His control has finally started to fall in line with how it was when he was working his way up through the minors. Good to see.

Today's game is MLB.TV's free game.

It's starting to look like it's not worth watching. :D
