"Defensive indifference" is one of my favorite baseball terms.

Not as bad as I thought it would be. We walked around, looked in the horrifically priced pro shop, and grabbed a bite to eat.

The next 4 days might get interesting. 3 behind the Cards and 1/2 game back of the Reds. The Cards have 4 against the Cubs. At least the Pirates avoid Cueto.

Liriano vs Leake
Morton vs Latos
Locke vs Arroyo
?? Cumpton vs Bailey

I scored 2 free tickets to the Pirates/Brewers game Sunday June 30. My only real question/issue is they are handicapped seats. Ive sat in the Consol handicapped seats and they are great. Anyone ever sit in the pnc park handicapped seats? Section 105 row hh are the seats.

With Morton and Cumpton starting 2 out of these 4 games....spliting this series has to be the best case scenario. Could there possibly be a worse time for a 4 game series in Cincinnati?

I'd like to see a Presley, Marte, McCutchen outfield a lot this week, and also Mercer at SS. I still think the needed upgrade is either at 1B or RF, especially if Mercer can take over for Barmes and hit #2. Offense can shape up to be something like this.

Marte
Mercer
McCutchen
Jones
(acquisition)
Alvarez
Martin
Walker

(can swap walker and mercer between 2 and 8)

We could be in trouble this series. Need big big starts by liriano and locke. Virtually no chance for us against latos or Bailey... good news is those 2 align with our 2 worst

Cant believe I just heard Starkey just say, "Batting Average doesn't matter, power numbers are what matters." My God how this game has changed. :face:

No Inge or Hopeless in the lineup. Martin and Marte back. This appears to be the strongest lineup available. I'm feeling faint.

I'd rather have Marte hitting 2nd, but I'm not going to complain.

Presley has like 11 ks and 0 walks. Not that Marte is an ideal leadoff hitter but..

In a perfect world Presley wouldn't be in the lineup. Since he dont live in a perfect world I'd rather Marte hit infront of Cutch.
