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.
There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Rolando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Rolando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Rolando
Yes, if I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Rolando...
Needed him tonight! I"m ok with him in the line up because we have no one else, but he doesn't need to be lead off now.
And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!
Drew is up to .627 on the year, and considering the start he had, I think that's pretty decent. Numbers are certainly trending upward.
In a SSS from the 7 hole (33 AB's) he's hitting .333/.389/.545/.934. I hope he continues to thrive from the 7 hole.
The trick will be to see if it lasts past Memorial Day.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
I'm just glad he's getting consistent PA. All players need to adjust when they come up to the majors. I don't know if he'll adjust enough to stick, but with his glove and speed, he should get every opportunity to do so.
He has been looking better and better as of late at the plate.

Yep. Been saying it all along. 500-600 ABs this year, hitting lower in the order if he struggles at the top. Development continues at the major league level for almost every player.I'm just glad he's getting consistent PA. All players need to adjust when they come up to the majors.
