I wonder if we'll score a run today?

The only chance we had today was to get to their bullpen.n Adam La Roche came through with a two run dinger. I only wish we'd given some support to Paul Maholm. He should have 10 or 11 wins this season.

I guess Burnett got out of a jam. I realize that this game means nothing but I am always pulling for Sean.

This does not make me feel good about Steve Pearce:

"Pearce said, 'I had no idea what that pitch was," when asked about his winning single. He also talked about having three game-winning RBIs already. "I love those situations. Always have. Just come up there hacking. I know a bases-loaded walk is good there, too, but I want to hit.'"

He's basically telling opposing pitchers that they don't need to get the ball over the plate to him in a spot like that. On the optimistic side, maybe he's using reverse psychology so that they'll walk him next time. Are any baseball players that smart?

Please, Rob Deer knew how to take a walk. You want an apt comparison? Try Joe Carter.

No, he's been telling opposing pitchers that they don't need to throw him strikes every time he's swung his bat since his recall.

I'd rather have him look like a hitter who has a clue, myself.

Me too. Aggressive can be good or bad. Getting hits is always good and he hasn't done enough of that.
