Nice knowing you, Hayden Penn.

Hayden Penn = batting practice pitcher.

Classic case of a guy who can throw hard but has no idea how to pitch.

Concerns:

1.) I know it's only been three games, but I'm not convinced Aki leading off batting 1st is a good move.

2.) Crosby's throws to 1B? Not strong?

3.) Hayden Penn-throwing for strikes? :?

4.) LaRoche (at the plate)

5.) Clement (playing 1B has been better than his hitting so far)

To be fair, his second error came after making a tough diving stop. Not that I disagree overall though, it definitely wasn't an encouraging debut.

LaRoche is great with the glove so far, but anemic at the plate.

Penn sucks.

Aki isn't hitting yet, but quality at bats and draws walks.

Penn will probably be given a few more games...They said they are sending McCutchen down after his start because a 5th starter wont be needed for a while and Hanrahan would be taking his place on the 25 man...

but I imagine Penn might be gone when McCutchen is needed if he doesnt improve quickly...

Just a crap game by the Pirates so far. The stupid shift led to Furcal's (Erkel's?) "double," which was nothing more than a fly ball to left...


OK then, after 3 games (almost), left field shift - 2, Bucfan's old school - 1.

Wrong. The Dodgers' third run yesterday can be attributed to the shift. Kemp singles into left, 40' off the line. That single becomes a double because the LF'er has to cover an acre to get to the damn single, so Kemp reaches second, where he scores - with two outs - on the Ethier single.

Last two games - Reasonable Positioning 2, Shift 0.

Milledge went a long way in the first game to get a ball in the LCF gap. That is a base runner, probably at second, perhaps at third. It is not a run, however.

What is the second instance you believe the shift paid dividends? (I missed quite a bit of today's game.)

Yep. Sorry ZM, I'm with Bucfan on this one. LF shift sucks. Also, Aki leading off hitting 1st sucks too...in my humble-just-a-fan opinion. :D

And there goes the perfect season.

At least there's still hope for .500.
