    That's ok by me, Jonathan Toews is my favourite hockey player that doesn't wear a Jet jersey.

    Well, and to be honest ... I can only name two players on the team ... Sharp and Kane.

    You've put your finger on the problem: putting the ball in play. After his taking another third strike, I think he's high enough there at seventh. He takes enough walks to supplement the BA, his ISO is better than league average. But he needs to improve the batting average before you want him at cleanup.

    He needs to improve contact to stay in the major leagues.

    True. Batting seventh is already nature's way of telling you that you'd better have a reason beyond your bat if you hope to continue collecting major league meal money.

    Flori-moan! C'mon Dick, quit calling for the bunt. A hit is far better than a bunt. Yes! It happened!

    Horrible call by Vavra there, I realize only 1 out but he was halfway home.

    It cost a base there, but Florimon made the right play to come home. That was a sure DP otherwise and if Pedro doesn't come home, it is a runner on third and two outs.

    Perhaps, but Adam Dunn seems to have had a reasonably productive career (other than last of course) alternating between HRs and Ks. The B**ch Sox don't mind batting him 4th.

    But then again we're talking about the B**ch-Sox

    With nobody out and a ball hit in front of Florimon, I wasn't going to second guess Vavra, but that may be the story of the game. Jeez, this club is terrible with runners in scoring position.

    I'll repeat the prediction that a lead off single will result eventually in breaking the scoreless tie.
