It is certainly more fun this year when an opponent hits a ball into the outfield. I feel we have things pretty well covered. I missed having that confidence in our OF.

Don't believe everything you read on the Internet just because it has a name or a photo you recognize.

Just saw this on Deadspin http://deadspin.com/...ttle-1795138965


Kiermaier is not having a nice start to the season.

He's still tied for first in DRS for CF (with Buxton). This reminds me of, I believe, two seasons ago when Arenado had a horrendous day or two defensively.  Doesn't stop him from being the best defender(or tied for the best with Machado) at 3B.

Obviously I'm a huge fan of his defense. He does seem to fall asleep from time to time. Hopefully that gets cleaned up going forward.

Here's some hope:


Buxton has a higher batting average than Mike Nalpoli and Alex Gordon, and is .02 behing Jose Bautista, and .10 behind Alcides Escobar. Slow start ;)
