I agree, they look bad. But then we expected it, right?

Two guys that to me do not look good in the field are Aki and Lastings. Lastings is trying hard and being a good soldier, but I just don't see the talent that others do. Aki just doesn't have the speed or athleticism to be good.

They will look bad for a few games, and look great for others. It is the way of young and incomplete teams.

It would help significantly if they could start getting contribution from LaRoche. Something, anything. I expect Doumit to be his streaky self.

I expect up and down from the staff with the exception of Duke and Maholm, who will give you what you see.

He hit the two hardest balls by the Pirates last night. His two hits were ripped, one for double and the other a single.

I didn't see those 2 hits, but I was referring to his defense. Apparently he has a bad ankle so I'm sure that's part of it. But let's face it, he's getting kind of old and kind of heavy to be a starting 2nd baseman.

He is a bit thick around the middle to be playing 2nd base.

I commented on that Opening Day in the Pub. I had never seen Aki before (don't watch much AL), and I was stunned to see a 2B with his... physical credentials?

offensivly he does [produce quality at bats, usually works the count and is semi productive, wish the same could be said for half the other guys
