So Pena may have the biggest windup of any catcher ever to play at this level.

He can't throw for shit, but I really like his swing from the left side. Overall, Ned has handled the catcher platoon pretty well in Perez's absence, which I hope ends soon.

Hitting well since moved to the lead-off spot. Who could have guessed?

Don't care what "stat-only guys" say. Location in the order affects players' mental approach. Human nature.

Great base running by Gordon here.

Remember Gregor Blanco? He's starting in RF for the Giants and leading off... at least in this weekend series vs. the Cubs. Don't know if he's filling for an injury or not. Noticed his average is .267.

Speaking of batting average, Melky is leading the majors in the category. Probably looking at an All-Star starter for the NL. I'm happy for Melky and it makes me hate Sanchez a little more.

Swinging at ball 4.

Questionable; I find that the little box on the tracker they show on the TV is pretty conservative, and if it's close to it, it's probably a strike.

Mr. Laz

He has had a couple of pretty bad outings, but overall he has been much, much better than I (or anyone else) anticipated. He has 13 saves, 2 blown saves, a 1.66 ERA, and a 1.20 WHIP. He is among the best in MLB in just about every category for a closer.

Kraus
06-03-2012, 03:01 PM
Detroit lost to the yankees today, so we're one game back from surpassing them in the AL Central. They've got Cleveland coming up, we've got Minnesota. Hopefully by Wednesday we'll be in 3rd in the AL Central.

He's also gotten pretty lucky a few times...hell, he was lucky that ball today was foul.

That said, he's blown two saves, and the first, when he hit back to back players, wouldn't have been blown without Escobar's error.

No, my point is every closer allows baserunners. The A's outing where he hit the 2 guys was awful, and that game last week where he walked a couple guys was awful, but other than that, he's been pretty nails.

I almost don't even want to type this but the Twins (or any struggling team that we SHOULD beat) seem like just the kind of team that we'd shit our pants against just as we're making a move.

Forget it... I didn't even think it let alone type it. It's an illusion.
