    A .547 OPS "hitting" second, and just .424 since the start of July.


    Play second, bat second!

    I feel sorry for Hendricks. He might have to pitch a shutout to avoid a loss.

    For those of us unswayed by 'balance' in the lineup arguments, and more concerned with stringing hits together in succession to score runs, the lineup should read:

    Revere, Mauer, Hammer, Doumit, Plouffe, Carson, Casilla, Florimon, Butera.
    Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

    I concur, with the exception of my own preference for an on-base guy at the bottom of the order to set up the turnover back to the top and improve the odds of hit-stringing- ie, I'd flip Florimon with Butera.

    I agree that Florimon would be better ninth. I also wonder why bat Plouffe as high as he is - he is in a massive slump. Carson or even Casilla might be a better choice until he gets his bat working again.

    And Liam walks the first batter.

    And now a wild pitch.

    Aw, come on...

    What's the over/under on how many innings of this game I'm going to watch? 2?

    Well, I can live with one run. Hopefully he settles and stops throwing so high in the zone.

    He's so dang nervous... got to get past that or he'll never be effective. I'm thinking 4 ER on 5 IP 3K 3 BB

    In the 1st inning, Coco Crisp did a fake bunt with a 3-0 count. That reminds me, the little League World Series is on.

    It'd be so great to get Liam a win right off the bat. He needs to get over the stigma of being winless, it seems.

    I don't think Dozier makes that play... Carroll either for that matter.

    I'm following the game on MLB's Gameday - it looks like the ump today has a small strike zone. Does that correspond to what people watching the game are seeing, or am I getting bad intel?
