Starling Marte!


Marte's swing really impresses me. Very efficient and quick with hardly any wasted motion kind of like McCutchen's swing. If he can improve his pitch recognition and discipline he has the looks of a potential beast.

Cubs balk in the run. Gotta be a first for us this year!

Nice AB by Gaby there. Down 0-2 and he worked a 9 pitch walk. Let's do something with it!

Look...I suck at baseball, but I think I could put better swings on a ball than Clint Barmes. This last at bat in the seventh was beyond pathetic...in fact, I truly can't find a word to adequately describe it. I love his defense, but every night we have two pitchers batting in the lineup.

Hurdle apparently wanted Watson to get a few more outs.
