Having JVM as the DH is just proof that Bell is just using lefty/righty to ease his decision. JVM is our worst hitter...Janikowski stinks but Iíd bet with the consistent ABís like JVM has gotten that Janikowski would be better....Davidson and Ervin decently better (but not great)

Bellís job is to choose the best of the worst.....heís just keeps choosing the worst of the worst

ok....slightly higher chance than normal which is very low that you get on....and Tucker is up next? Like I said, you hit one 400 Feet on this guy an hour ago....I would prefer he try to duplicate that act.

If you watch Galvis, he flirts with that bunt all the time. Fakes it, sometimes goes for it.

He probably canít resist the open left side.

But he swings away most of the time.

I don’t have proof of this but I feel like Barnhart is great at getting himself into good hitters counts like 2-0 or 3-1 and then just flailing away at balls until he K’s or flies out weakly.

Man itís nice to have Moose back everyday.
As many flaws as I tend to point out, if they can just get that bullpen straightened out, maybe go get someone, this team can actually be a playoff team. I love the fact we can be a Waino on a night that Nick goes 0fer.

Geno has to still be hurting from that shoulder injury in the swimming pool, right?

I mean the guy hit 49 bombs last year and he just looks absolutely outclassed in virtually every trip to the plate this year.


I’m hoping this isn’t another Ray King sits on Austin Kearns’ shoulder type thing playing out here, because Kearns was never the same from that moment on.
