Is it me, or is Rob IwaJima forced to wear suits all the time while Potash was granted golf shirts on day games and when it was muggy as hell out like tonight? Rookie hazing?

Hopefully Pedro can hit two more dingers and the pitching staff can shut them out the rest of the way, or we will have to salvage the series tomorrow

Yes I'm pretty sure. Just felt like all day games he was wearing suits. It's July for F's sake. Let the guy wear a polo always. I think potash had wife beaters last year

All we need is a bench player, because this starting roster can RAKE!

If you win hockey night with the Hurdles does that require you to chew gum the whole time?

They have decent enough bats in LF CF 3B and C and SS are okay for the defense. They have 1/2 bats at 2B 1B and 3B. There's no depth and it's too easy to pitch around guys. A couple of decent bats wont make them the 27 Yankees but it will make a difference.

I swear this happens every time I start to believe in this team. The wheels hopefully will stay on the wagon. I must admit though...this current down trend is very worrysome

It's getting to the point that they may start auctioning off a night on the town with Anna Benson.

Yes, they need a RF and/or SS who can hit.

Going out and trading for a utility guy is not going to make the starting lineup hit the ball any better.

If you can't see a trend beginning and/or have ignored the last two seasons I don't know what to tell you.

Cardinals doing Cardinal-like things to the Astros.

Reds lost to the Brewers, and the Nats lost to the Phillies, so the WC standings hold.

Now now....I know there are ups and downs. BUT this is not the same team and you can't tell me you haven't noticed a change.

I really shouldn't be eating a pint of frozen yogurt per game this early in the season. But the stakes are high, and the bats are...well, yeah.
