Josh Hamilton, off to a hot start, lands on the DL for 6-8 weeks from a headfirst slide into 1b last night. That contract is looking horrendous.
ForceAtHome said:Harper finally started hitting tonight. Crushed a ball over the LF foul pole into the third deck, and had a really nice opposite field hit as well. Both hits were off lefties.
Ryan Zimmerman's arm looks pretty bad right now. There's just no strength. I suspect Rendon will be the starting 3B in Washington before the season is over. Speaking of Rendon, I know he's been great lately, but walking him to get to Jayson Werth did not end well at all. Werth had the come-from-behind grand slam in the 8th to put the Nats up 10-7. There weren't a ton of people left at the end of the nearly four hour game, but it was pretty exciting for an April game in DC on a chilly weeknight.
Not much to fall back on in that bullpen either. Chamberlain (who just gave up a single to the only hitter he face). Al Alburquerque who walks guys at a rate of about 6 / 9 innings. and a whole bunch of junk.derekson said:I can't believe how bad Joe Nathan has been. Blew another save tonight, a 3 run save even.
It was the RF foul pole, but I think you knew that since you also referred to getting an opposite field hit as well. That was a really good game though, I was glad I watched it even though here in Florida I was stuck with the godawful Marlins broadcast. Yuck.
Okay so I literally and unabashedly laughed out loud. Clubhouse leader for Post Of The Year.jimc said:Adam Jones just quoted on YES as saying, with complete disregard for his sister's sexual health, that Jeter is "the kind of guy you want your sister to bring home and marry".
SoxFanInCali said:Top 8: Braves go back-to-back-to-back, lead 5-1.
Bottom 8: Phillies get a walk, 3 singles, and a 3 run homer to lead 6-5.
Top 9: Braves go walk, FC where nobody is put out, walk, grand slam to go up 9-6.
5 homers, 12 runs in an inning and a half. Nice bullpens.
This is what I need to know and what I want to know: What’s the guy’s batting average, how many dingers has he hit and how many runs he batted in.
I want to know a pitcher’s ERA and his won-loss record. Maybe, if he’s Nolan Ryan, how many strikeouts he has had.
Boras making phone calls already no doubt.soxhop411 said:Hanley Ramirez grabbed his left wrist after HBP, threw off his helmet. He is being led off the field by trainer Stan Conte.
Kouzmanoff made him pay, he's been a huge pickup for Texas since Beltre's out with more leg issues.mpx42 said:Lloyd McClendon intentionally walks Prince Fielder in a 0-0 game in the first inning, with two outs and one on. Three runs score.
