    Tucker just got called up from AA. Here's an idea of what might to expect from him:

He also throws a curve but I think the Fish have made him concentrate on the slider. He doesn't miss as many bets as you'd think he would on paper. I haven't seen him pitch this season but I can't wait to see how he does hopped up on adrenaline today...

    He pitches inside with abandon so hopefully nobody will get plinked. Hopefully Harang will school him on the slider today.

    The consummate professional vs the hot headed kid..... be there or be square.

    Keep riding the Hairston train until he cools off?

    Why not. I can't say he's done anything as a Red that makes me want to take him out. I know it won't last, thats the part that scares me.

    His last 31 PAs have looked eerily like the ghost of Hairston past... (.286/.310/.393)

    To me the really scary part is how long will it take Dusty to realize when it's over?

    On a 3-1 count they intentionally walk Junior. 1st and 2nd.

    Hairston looks hurt diving back to 2nd on a pickoff attempt.

    Hairston is ok but Phillips grounds into his usual 6-4-3 DP. 0-0 mid 1st.

    Like clockwork.... BP rolls over one to SS for the double play. So frustrating...
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Is he getting worse in terms of doing that, or am I noticing it more because its seemingly a topic of conversation lately?
