    Good thing about Castro is that you know if he hits with two outs you'll have the 1-2-3 up next inning.

    McHugh has dropped his ERA over 100 points so far. It's now under 20.

    George needs to watch some tape from his pre-injury weeks last year. Short swing, balanced, eye on the ball.

    Boy, if Rasmus can keep up the home run threat, and keep his average up at a solid level, he's the just the protection was need hitting behind Correa.

    Not sure I wasn't watching much. I do remember that this is what he did when he first came up and pre move to leadoff last year.

    Yeah, it's easy to tell when and why he's scuffling at the plate, just watch his head, it's all over the place right now.

    I really like what Luhnow has done so far. For as much flak as we've received media-wise, he's put together one hell of a competitive team. We're deep. If you don't perform, someone will take your job. For years to come.

    where do you put gattis tho? I doubt theyre going to put him at Catcher, he will split DH time with tucker.

    I trust the numbers and what not but it does seem a little bit strange to play your RF in right centerfield against a LHH.

    Way to battle through that Collin.

    Also, great relay by Springer to keep the runner at third.
