    Loretta is your typical #2 hitter, good bat control, can move runners over, and he does the little things. Hunter has some speed on him, definitely not a good #2 hitter due to his impatient approach, Loretta is just better suited for the second spot in the order.

    Let's see how he does with his start tonight. He has drawn a few walks this eason and actually has a .250 OBP which is better than Ausmus and Blum at least.

    How about a Gold Glove for Berkman, too?

    He's doing everything... with an injured groin!

    Wigginton must have thought he was Omar Vizquel for a minute.

    I'd rather him use his glove and not get the runner. If he actually managed to bare hand that ball, my guess is he would've thrown it past Berkman anyways.

    Meanwhile, Cruz is hurting us in the field and at the plate so far this season.

    I can't fathom why Tejada would try to steal with no outs and Berkman at the plate.

    Does anybody know if he was sent or if he went on his own?

    And 4 of those outings were multiple homers. Altogether 12 homers now in 9 starts. Terrible
