    Hamilton with a RBI single, he's 2-for-2.

    Olivo did an awful job trying to catch that ball thrown home.

    Hanley is impressive. Should be pitching into his hands and nowhere else

    I really don't think he's that far away. His dramatic improvement in finding the strike zone this year has been great. Now he just learn to pitch effectively inside the zone.

    Last couple of years...he had major flaws.

    They're damn good, and they're fun to watch despite their place in the standings. When Keppinger is serving as the high contact table setter, and Hamilton as the 380+OBP leadoff hitter with pop, the rest of the lineup benefits greatly from their presence. Enormous upgrade from the days of Freel and Phillips at #1 and #2. Instead the top of the order gets on, and the EBH/Slg% bats (Griffey, BP, Dunn) are driving them in. Enormous upgrade with Keppinger over AGon, and the added luxury of dropping EdE down in the order, rather than relying upon him as the 5th spot in the order.

    Hope that Belisle can become an above average #4 starter to complement Harang and Arroyo, and then go out and get some legit pitching help for the 'pen and a couple of rotation upgrades in the offseason. We're not far from being a pretty good young team, but it's going to take the right moves from our GM.

    Behind David Eckstein and Adam Wainwright (he probably played SS in high school), Hanley Ramirez is the best SS in the NL by far and one of the top three in baseball.

    Just joking of course about Eckstein.

    That pitch sequence to Cabrera was a great example of what he needs to do. Get ahead...and then pitch close enough to the zone to try to make them hit your pitch. Miggy swung at least 2, maybe 3 balls....right on the edge of the zone after he was behind.
