Rain is lasting longer than they anticipated. Looking at the radar it may be another hour before this game gets underway.

I would think they almost have to play it barring a hurricane today because of the rainout a few days ago.

Any end in sight?

It would be tough on the team if they can't get this one in...

Please stop playing Crosby at 1st, we need to give as many at bats to Clement he actualy has a future with us. His poor is real but he can not get any better watching a scrub play.

Honestly, I'd rather the team try to win than just get at bats for a guy who has played TERRIBLE baseball. I'm tired of watching Clement flail at the ball.

When Pearce gets healthy, he should man the first base job for the rest of the year. I'd rather see what he can do.

Couldn't take it. Left at 9:30. Blackberry shows another front moving in.

I am now comfortably ensconced in front of FSN.

send down Garrett Jones, he can't hit left-handed pitching... he can join Pedro Alvarez (/sarcasm)

Pearce had a long look last year at 1st he is nothing special..
Clement deserves the entire year to get it right.

We wanted him to be a bopper right?

Well he has 70 less AB's than Jones and Cutch, and 40 less than Doumit (the team leaders with 5 HR's) and he's only one behind them with 4.

He's got a lot to work on, don't get me wrong, but to give up on him now with those power numbers (that we wanted him to have) is just wrong.

Over a safe estimate of a full season of 550 AB's, that projects to 31 HR's.

I would rather lose with the kids leaning on the job then win with guys who have no future.
if we get the top pick we get this guy http://www.baseballrumormill.c...anthony-rendon/

Although I like the 3-0 lead, both Doumit and McCutcheon dogged it running the bases. I don't like that.

Well Duke has given two of the runs back, so now we're up 4-2 after five innings.

At least Aki drew a walk in his pinch hit. That's a plus.

I don't know why pitchers don't just throw strikes to Aki right now because the best hit he can muster has no pop to it whatsoever.

Tough loss.

Hopefully, Walker learned a lesson with his two-out at-bat with runners at second and third base. DON'T CHASE. He worked the count to 2-0 and then flailed. He needs to manage the strike zone and go where the ball is pitched. In the post-game comments, he seems to understand where he went wrong.

I really want to see The Legend come out of his funk.

Duke really disappointed after being handed a 4-0 lead.

I called it a night after the Whiteside HR. I knew they were going to lose as Duke was lucky to have gone four without giving up any runs. He was up in the zone all night and his curve was as flat as Kansas.
