    Tucker hitting .194 is pretty damn pathetic.

    Last week I was ready to say that Tucker is better than Reddick was.

    It's an offensive explosion! 2 runs on 1E, 1 "hit", 1BB, 1SB, 2SF

    I don't see how any team with any aspirations of doing anything would think it was a good idea to have Straw as an everyday player. Just stupid by the organization.

    He should play ballboy. Can't field, can't hit and disrespected Oakley.

    Well, and the logic is/was that we signed Brantley because of it. That being said, Straw leaves A LOT to be desired.

    Shouldn’t Straw have caught that? If he can’t make those plays he really has no business being on this team

    If he can't play above average defensively, then there is no point to Myles Straw starting.

    That's 3 runs today that a competent CFer prevents.
