    I'm not saying that he is a bad defensive outfielder, and I think he will probably be pretty good. But at times it appears that he loses focus out there. Maybe it's just me, and I'm being unreasonable.

    Wild stuff man.
    What is this "working the count" you speak of? Everyone knows you swing at any pitch that doesn't bounce, unless of course you think you can hit the bouncing pitch.

    Hitters who avoid outs are the funnest.

    Cueto isn't getting the same pitches Harden is.

    The Cubs fail to get a runner in from 3rd with less than 2 outs.

    I know, I know.

    You gotta be agressive. It's what real men do.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Brantley was talking about the Chicago wind playing tricks with the balls hit into the outfield tonight. Including the play by Bruce.

    CPatt is trying to land a ball on 2nd base.

    I know people get tired with the complaining about CPatt.

    But that guy is horrable at the plate.

    Am I the only one rooting against C-Pat? I really want to see him finish the year a batting average under .200 and an OPS under .600...
    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.
