Baseball!

It should be an interesting season.

Hayes, Reynolds, Newman, Kuhl, and Keller are going to have a lot of eyes on them.

How is the pitching going to handle 162 games?

No Ryann!

It's been a while since you've heard me complain, but I just want to let you know that I still hate leadoff walks :x

Kuhl gets out of the self-imposed jam only allowing 1 run. Bucs lead 2-1 after the 1st.

Kuhl's line not so bad except for the 47 pitches in two inning - 24 balls, 23 strikes.

Bullpen will be used a lot Game 1

Love the hustle by Reynolds on the infield hit. Umps in midseason form. :o
