    Frankie always seems to pitch better with a lead. Too bad we didn't come away with 4 or 5 in the first.

    No worries, Drew is catching.

    Nice play by Dozier. Dunn hit him a change up and he managed to stay with it.

    Drew must have taken a pitch off.

    Can anybody see what Drew is doing wrong out there?
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    No way, that call must have come from the bench.

    those 4 or 5 runs in the first make all the difference in the world. Frankie would still be pitching with a lead at this point.

    100% of the time Liriano pitchers in late July against the White Sox with Butera catching, he sucks. Clearly Butera is the problem.
    Lighten up Francis....

    Drew calls the wrong pitch, Span can't run the bases TR waits much longer he won't get anything. Of course, the teams are lining up to pay all Mornies salary and send us a quality player so not all is lost.

    Drew isn't much behind the plate, but the guy is a wizard with the bat.

    Dozier is having a good early game.

    When the H&R works, it's a beautiful thing.

    Well if we can't seem to capitalize on bases loaded no outs might as well get it this way. It's hot out here

    Gavin Floyd only wishes he had his own LPW behind the dish.

    When he is in the lineup, maybe we should move him up to the number two spot. Looks like a natural spot for his abilities. Not much power, but can really handle the bat.

    I would make a terrible ump, I think they always look safe in those bang, bang plays and in reviewing in slow motion it was clearly an out.

    Umps don't get nearly enough credit for how often they get it right.

    1st inning--run scores on DP Ball.
    2nd inning-- run scores on wild pitch.

    Care to speculate how they'll scoere this inning? I'mm looking at a combination of errors and catcher's interference.
