Jordy Mercer puts up a 2 for 5 day, both hits are doubles...Hopefully he starts to get more playing time...

I don't see how he doesn't. In the past Barmes has played based on his defense which has declined. Statistically Mercer is now equal to Barmes in the field with a better bat.

Ah, the care free pre-steroid days. When guys like Shawon Dunston could sport sub-.700 OPS', just over 0 WAR's, make All-Star teams and have 17-year careers.

Poor Clint Barmes was born 20 years too late.

Liriano has been ridiculously good. I know the Pirates scored 0 runs during his outing against the Red last time out but his only ER came via an infield single. Outside of the Detroit game when he ran into some bad luck during the inning Fielder got the bloop hit and a hitter put a good charge into a nice curveball, he has given up 3 ER in his other 5 starts combined while striking out 9/7/9/11/8. Today's game was the first time his control has been an issue either (which was clearly the questionable achilles heel with him coming in).

His stuff is electric. The command always is probably always going to have me a bit uneasy, and I was admittedly getting ready to want him yanked after Rizzo when he'd just issued a 4 pitch walk and then got down 2-0 on him. Of course he came back with 3 straight strikes and cruised another 2 innings so, shows what I know about when to pull guys.

If you watched the WGN broadcast, did you catch the stat on lowest swing to contact average in baseball?

Yep....it's Pedro.

Sunglasses or looking off in the distance?

Looking off in the distance. I had to bite my tongue a few times when he was hitting.
