i wonder if bell had an awakening after 4 games ... or if someone from the front office "suggested" that shogo be the leadoff man in most cases. it's just interesting that shogo did not bat leadoff in any of the first 4 games (didn't even start 2 of them) but has been the leadoff man four straight times now, including last night's lineup in the postponed game. that is a fairly drastic change.

“Straight up in the air” apparently means a deep fly ball that was nearly a homer in one of the biggest parks in baseball.

Castillo trying to hit a gnat in that same exact spot?

Unable to locate 4 straight fastballs to Romine for a walk, then a mis-location of a change-up to the #9 hitter for a double, then a SF from the top of the order, and a potential great inning yielded a run after 2 outs.

Chris Welsh is very annoyed that Turnbull checked a cheat sheet mid-inning.

Jeff Brantley says Turnbull may want to throw that card away after Senzel's RBI double. Turnbull must not have had success against Senzel in their SEC match-ups and was wondering if MLB scouts had any better ideas.

Now, he might not be an ace, but I’m not gonna declare that for sure just yet. He’s still very good.

I can’t imagine this team being .500. They were bad last year. They added a couple of decent bats but not the kind that work the count. I think the offense will be middle of the road, but yeah, combined with an awful pen and a bad bottom of the rotation, it’s looking like a repeat of last season.
