    Yeah, that's that same feed as the radio. He does kind of sound nervous.

    I don't think he'll be the only one deep thinking.

    Defense letting us down

    Forget the Bartlett miscue... Why isn't Escobar throwing home? Someone besides Hammer could have had that Bogearts ball.

    And now the walls are starting to wobble.

    I think you've just encapsulated a lot of fears about this season.

    I do expect to see Kubel playing LF a fair amount, with Hammer as DH. I think Kubel does, too.

    Now we're moving..... nice to see Escobar with that hit.

    Does my heart good to see some of the younger guys batting well. (Now there are some older ones who need to turn it up -- looking at you Willi).

    Wow, Hicks!!!!

    I wish I could have seen that move by Hicks. Gladden sounds very impressed by it.

    Florimon choked on a bunt... Hicks over committed and got hung up. Mistake followed by mistake.

    Hicks made a good call by just going for third instead of trying to scramble back to 2nd.

    Boston on blew it defensively or Hicks was toast at 3b. Gladden oversold it.

    It was bad baseball all around.

    But at least it was fun.

    And fun is about all I can hope for this year.

    And a heckuva lot more fun than having runners at 1st and 3rd with no outs AND NO ONE BRINGING ANYONE IN.

    Sounds like last year.

    The same fears from watching last season... Uninspired baseball.

    You gotta compete!!! I can spot lolligagging from a mile away.

    At least I think that's lolligagging... I didn't wash my glasses this morning.

    First and third, no outs. K, followed by K, followed by K. Ick.

    I'd take having the radio announcers on TV anytime over Dick and Bert.

    Well we've been averaging .4 runs a game this spring so with the full run yesterday getting a run today might be a lot to ask!

    Well, the strike outs seem to be carrying over from last year.
