    No, surely we would have seen it by now.

    Listening to the Os broadcast: Blamed Plouffe for crowding the plate, that the pitch was "barely off the plate." Interesting. I saw the ball inside the batters box or on the chalk at least.

    You mean we're not the only team with home-town announcers?

    Yes but he really shouldn't use it.

    It's a crapshoot, what this home plate ump is going to call.

    Hendriks has a good enough curve and change that he shouldn't use the slider. The slider is a huge part of his problem with RHB. Today we've already seen RHB swing and miss against the curve. I see this as a good adjustment by Liam.

    Another hard-hit ball from Escobar.

    I am developing a mancrush on Escobar.

    Well, when you're Jeff Reboulet, I imagine it's pretty easy to crush on middle infielders with a bit of pop.

    Back when Jeff Reboulet played I purchased a fantasy baseball magazine that had write ups on every player. I'll never forget Jeff's write up...Reboulet is a French word meaning "bottom of the barrel".
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Doumit doesn't usually get a shift like this, does he?

  17. #37
    Dick REALLY wants Doumit to bunt here, you can tell.

    Ugh, maybe he should have.

    Oof, there really is something to be said for a pitcher who can strike out a couple of guys in a row.
