Way too general. Specifically, many come from pitching. That's a bit of a concern.

It's a little questionable, too. We haven't been scoring as much recently, so it's not as if our run generation's been doing well during this stretch.

We're in first place, so I'm not in panic mode.

Who would have thought that the Pirates would have a 5 game losing streak in May and still have the second best record in the NL?
That being said, we could use a win today.

I dont think many expected .588 on May 7; tied with the Dodgers for second-highest.

The Bucs, Orioles, and Diamonbacks are surprising so far, and of course, the Rays being as dominant as they've been.

What it must be like to be in the AL-East. All good teams, but....

It's May. Teams jockey for position. The whips come out in August. Let's see who has it. Can't wait!

There is just something about Keller that makes me reluctant to jump on his bandwagon quite yet. I'd like to see what the guy does in the heat of battle.

I guess that we can give our franchise leadership- past and present- kudos for our supposed "ace" progression from Cole to Musgrove to Keller. I wonder that, when the time comes, will the third time be the charm, or will some fourth name be added?

Some think that it will. The rest of us may hope so.

BOB did his thing to bring Cutch back. Cherington pieced the exciting roster together....but, he also assembled a bit of The Hodgepodge and all that came before that. It's probably better to see where things take us. At the moment, a lot better than before, thankfully.

That's considered being down? It's balanced. It's accurate. It's also fair. Not one inaccuracy.

I guess we're required to go handstands around here. I didn't write a negative word after we went on a losing streak. Why not? Because three were against the Rays in their park. The Blue Jays were the worse show- not much of a fight in our park. I didn't write anything negative then, either. Someone described a game as "another turd dropper." Who's Debbie Downer?

Dave wasn't telling us how "exciting" the team was while we were on that losing streak. Why not?
.
We win a game and you're on me.

Come on, guy. If you're going to be critical of what I wrote, then tell everybody here what you have to say. It's easier to just take a shot.

You're giving homey Orioles fans a run for the money. I thought they were bad.

With the few runs that we've been scoring recently, caused baserunning mistakes and other factors, I wonder why there haven't been any position player goats?

When you're not scoring....or, you score only one or two runs, it takes an ace as good as Keller to win. He can't pitch every game.
