Thames slugging % goes down when he hits a single. :lol:

I don't know if Villar is jealous of Thames or what he's trying to do up there. Just swinging for the fences everytime when all we need is for him to get on base.

Ump totally chokes strike 3 to Baez. Next pitch a double down the line...Counsell keeps Nelson in. Interesting choice.

Selling high 2nd round picks to former World Champions. Selling 1st and 2nd round picks for Greivous Vasquez. There is no medicine for my pain.

Counsell has made some interesting decisions tonight. He's had a pretty quick hook on his starters so far this year and then leaves Nelson out there to rot when he's knocked around in this one.

Villar should've taken that cash.

We are only 15 games in.

Villar won't keep hitting .133, Broxton won't hit .132, and Thames won't continue being Barry Bonds on roids.

It's a super long season and from month to month some players will struggle quite a bit while others rake.

For sure, but if Villar ends this season closer to .250, could have lost a lot of money because last year starts to look like a fluke. Reminds me somewhat of Segura.

Something special is happening — and it’s not happening because of a couple of lucky bounces. It’s happening because my guys are for real.

The thing with Villar is he looks so much bigger this season. WTF happened there?

Lost 2 out of 3 in a series we honestly should've swept.
