I'l like to see Snider get all the at bats at this point until he proves otherwise. Tabata is at the point where he's just not going to make the next adjustment in reaction to pitchers taking away the opposite field from him.


Blimpo's power makes him dangersous against anyone, but he does have a noticeable platoon split. He should play against LHP mostly because there isn't a better option.

Just like Pitt hoops did :(


You let pitt hoops suck you in? For shame!!!

I stayed pretty modest until I saw the bracket and decided to put Pitt into Sweet 16, and let my mind wonder that ANYTHING could happen once they got that far lol

It seems like we struggle horribly at hitting fly balls in key situations

Neil Walker takes more called third strikes than anyone I've ever seen.

Tie game. Burnett's shaky tonight. The offense will need to pick him up.

Well, this game could possibly be over in the next few minutes. If that happens, we have Hamels, Lee, and Halladay coming up this week.
