We got ten hits today! Cause for celebration. Please ignore any RISP numbers. Have to take what you can get with this team.

We definitely need a sacrifice to right the hitting train!

So, when exactly can we call up Guerrero and Bichette? I don't mind a rebuild if there's young talent to watch, but some of these guys.... Let's just say these games aren't much fun to watch.

Bichette should stay in AAA for a while and prove himself there. He had a good year last year for his age but he wasn't outstanding either. Vlad's really an outlier with how dominant he is and they really shouldn't be lumped together.

It's not particularly exciting but the current strategy of just giving time to a bunch of fringy prospects/reclamation projects to see if any find their footing isn't a bad idea. If 1 of the McKinney/Hernandez/Gurriel/Drury/Tellez/Brito group establishes themselves it's a nice boost going forward. On the pitching side there is less opportunity but Thornton looks very promising so far.

Need a win today, however I could see us getting swept on this road trip. After today we play the home opener in Boston. I just don't see us winning any of the 2 games in Boston.

Nice pickup by Atkins with Brito. 0-9 so far.

I dunno, but the way things are going, maybe we should throw in a bunt or two... per inning. :lol:

Galvis is the only player who has showed up this season with his bat. The rest of these players suck donkey balls!

Someone make the next game series. I can't watch anymore of this garbage of a team.

Another game with double digit strikeouts. This is getting embarrassing.

We got a...point? A touchdown? What's the thing where the guy touches the pentagon?
**** your asterisk.
