    I hope the warm weather...

    brings about a bit more patience by Freel and Phillips at the top of the order...sample size, sample size, but boy they've been way too ultra-aggressive swinging early in the count...not only aren't they hitting too well, but it doesn't work pitchers the way I'd wish because clearly baseball today is about being the 1st team to get into the other teams middle relief...

    Let's hope the warm weather allows those guys to settle down a bit...

    I usually groan when Freel swings at the first pitch, but he does get hits many times on it. BP on the other hand is just a free swinger. Wish he would settle down big time. He's a good two strike hitter too, so it wouldn't kill him to get to two strikes like it would for others.

    Actually, it's partly because of Freel. He's tied with EE for second on the team with 4 BBs. Only Junior and Dunn have more (5 apiece).

    Yeah, I'm usually one to get on Freel for not being patient, but he's had some pretty good ABs this season. Particularly ABs with men on base and Dunn behind him and he's been able to draw walks to get Dunn up in those situations.

    .385 OBP from Freel so far. Take a snapshot; because that's the picture of patience.
