Mahlom 55 strikes, 43 balls. Tells the whole story. Can't throw the ball where he wants to. All too common for him in 2009. I am starting to worry.

Doumit is really frustrating right now. I wanted JJ to play today.


I just cannot understand it. Catchers need days off. Doumit is fragile as it is. JJ played well in his absence. Russell is running Doumit into the ground.

DY goes yard. How come "Crooked Hat" only faced one batter? For his protection?

What is your point?

My point is that I think JJ should play at least once every 5 days probably 2 days a week. Given that we have games Mon-Thurs this week today is a perfect day to rest him. Given how cold RD has been at the plate it's even more reason to give him the day off.

We have to tie this to remove Burnett from the win.

Doumit is in Spring Training right now. He needs to play to get his game back. He shouldn't be at all tired.

I know I am one who has called for a Doumit position change and still would not mind seeing that. However, if you have him as your No. 1 catcher, you play him as your No. 1, including getting him game time to catch up after a long layoff.

That would be my point. But, doing it this way allows up to inflate our post counts and catch up to others...

So much for Mr. Maholm being our "Ace". I do not enjoy watching him pitch........sorry.

AndyL was safe at 1B. The Ump blew it.

Doumit needs to sit. Why JR doesn't see that is beyond me.

I don't disagree that we should "play him as your No. 1". That doesn't mean you don't give him a game off every so often, though.

I agree Mike. I am not saying that JJ should play over Doumit, just that Doumit needs more days off. All catchers need days off, but in my mind, especially one who is pretty fragile and coming off an injury. I know he is probably our best power hitting option. Even if JR would play him at 1b on occasion to rest him a little.

Chavez gives up a run and now it's 5-3. Darn. This sucks.

Walk a guy with two outs. Pay the price.

I disagree with sitting Doumit. He is fresh and he is your best power hitter. A day off isn't a bad thing, but I think Doumit and Russell know better than any of us if he needs a day off.

I think the Doumit debate is interesting, and I like RD a lot so this isn't personal. I don't think Doumit post injury in 2009 is our best power hitter. In fact, I don't even think he's in the top 3 and you could argue reasonably he's not in the top 5. I also think that it is either Spring Training for Doumit and we play him even though he can't hit or we expect that he can hit. I think JR/NH are thinking like ZM describe in his post and are therefore playing him knowing he isn't able to produce offensively now. I am thinking about who's playing effectively today.

Here's my list thinking about the last 90 days or so not career potential or prior years. There is no way he's higher then 3.
1. Jones
2. Young
3. Doumit (?)
4. Cutch
5. Moss

The last three pitches to Willie Harris from Joel Hanrahan were all balls. All three were well inside the MLB gameday strike zone.

Anyone watching on TV?

Why Doumit swinging at the first pitch from a guy with control problems when you need two runs to tie the game?

Stupid, Ryan.

That's at least then 2nd time today too...

Ryan is very frustrating. BTW - I am watching on TV but buried my head when Hanrahan was pitching.
