    You can't expect him to hit a homer in every at bat!

    I think this is what Oswalt was hoping for more of this season.

    Berkman is a frickin' speedster this season!

    Seriously, though, that was a fantastic slide.

    Take one deep, Hunter! He hasn't had one yet this season.

    Hunter really does beat himself at the plate a lot. He needs to balance his aggressiveness with patience. It seems like he too often makes a decision on what he is going to do before the pitch comes. On that 0-2 count, he needs to slow down the swing, look for a good pitch and just make contact.

    It's particularly stunning, because if you look in another thread on this forum, you have someone swearing that Hunter is a terrible defensive player. How could this be?!? :D

    I'm not sure who you are alluding to but it wasn't me. In my opinion, Pence is a good outfielder, not great.

    Haha, no, I definitely wasn't talking about you. :) The last page of the "depressing" thread is what I was referring to. I generally agree with your assessment -- I do think Pence is great in terms of his range, but only good overall because of his inconsistent arm.

    Man if they beat Peevy would be a good moral booster. They've gotten slaughtered by good pitchers this season.

    let's end it with the lidge stuff....without trading him, there is no bourn, geary (been good so far), or costanzo, who helped us fetch tejada.

    finally the offense comes around. beating peavy would be a big confidence boost.

    how did byrdak look?

    We don't have some guys...we have some others. Let's focus on the ones we have at this point. I think they're going to have a good week.

    Thanks for posting this. I hadn't checked the stats but heard Jennings started out the season well. I guess that didn't last long.
