    Hammer does know where right field is.

    Nothing like giving at least 1/2 the lead right back.

    Aggie looks like he could get right back on the mound.

    Another AGONIZING game. I admire those with the intestinal fortitude to watch it.

    I think Liam's more interesting to watch when he's still chasing that elusive first win. It's like the Rabbit that's always after the Trix. It's more compelling tv to watch him fail than succeed. It makes him more of a tragic figure that everyone can sympathize with.

    Sigh. It's like watching a bad circus some times.

    I'm waiting for someone to make some claim again about Florimon's "elite" defense.

    Really hard to believe that they couldn't have found an inning or two for Slama in this game.

    But at least Waldrop was efficient there.

    I'm sick of Burnett's putrid strikeout rate, mediocre walk rate, and fluke ERA.

    You read my mind.

    But there's just no way they could find enough relief innings to go around if they had one more reliever, no way whatsoever.

    Haven't you heard?

    a) He's no good any way. He had his shot.
    b) There's not enough work in the pen on a team that's carried 13 pitchers for large chunks of the season
    c) There's only 1 spot open on the 40 man.
    d) "He'll get his shot."

    Do try to keep up.

    yeah, he's been ever bit (or more) as shaky as Dozier was but without even a tinge of the offensive upside. Florimon is also 6 months older than Dozier (who everyone complained was too old)

    Also, he's funny lookin'. But all those things you brought up are valid too.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Escobar hits for himself as the tying run in the 7th with 2 out.

    No room for any callups with a stick on this roster either, I guess.

    Are they even trying any more?

    e) Luis Perdomo and his 6 k/9 in AAA "earned" and "deserves" a look.
    f) His stuff doesn't play.
    g) He has a weak mustache.
    h) Just because.

    Sorry, "we need to see what we've got".
