    Dickerson works a great AB and slaps a double in the LF gap. The man just glides on the basepaths - big strides. Nice to see a guy with some strikezone judgment at the top of the lineup.
    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.

    Dickerson has "the good face"
    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

    After two great atbats by Dickerson and Kepp, Phillips follows by swinging at the first pitch and grounding into a fielders choice.

    Votto RBI single makes it 1-0.

    EdE hits a soft liner that Barmes catches and turns into a double play after bad baserunning by Phillips.

    That's Tavarez's 61st stolen base. 61.

    Thats wild stuff man.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    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

    It's important in this lost season to get Cory Patterson 400 AB's. See to it Dusty.

    Giving him a fair shake to have a contract for next year.

    I hope to the highest power that I'm joking

    Bruce hits a laser to begin the 2nd inning but Holliday makes a sliding catch to rob Bruce of a single.

    For a "fast" person, Cory sure gets caught stealing a lot.

    For a guy with speed, Corey Patterson is brutal on the base paths....
