Good ABs by our pitcher!!



That said, pitchers hitting is dumb and a waste. Can't wait until the NL adopts the DH

I'll take a 10-pitch K from my pitcher at the plate anytime.

"Up to 8 strikeouts"... yeah, three have been due to awful calls.

Urquidy has seen 17 pitches in 2 AB tonight.

Yeah, I used to be anti-DH, but it's just not anywhere near as interesting to watch the pitcher bat.

Your game 4 ALCS starter right there


Just don't feel like we will have the sample size to roll that way with the deadline just a few days away.

Yep me too. Used to think that pitchers should hit as well, but I've converted. However, I still get a kick if a pitcher gets ahold of one and hits it out.

No, he's done. No need to stretch him

This ump is terrible (both ways). How does someone like this make it to the bigs?

This guy's zone is all over the place. He's punched guys out on balls nowhere close to the plate and let go pretty blatant strikes. The left hand batters side is really random.

When Urkeeding gets guys on base and gets out of the windup, he's setting up at the wrong angle to the plate. Whatever position he takes to the plate is how he delivers the pitch, and it leads to a lot of pitches outside the zone since he's not quite perpendicular. He needs to set up with his left shoulder straight in line to the plate and he'd get more in the zone. I'm sure Strom will let him know.

I'm sure it was something like "I'm going to show this kid what his place is by ****ing up his win."

Ok... I'm cautiously buying Uriquidy. I think that kid is going to help us down the stretch a little bit.

Would be nice if it was in his next start.


Shameless self bump.

Bad pitch by Harris, but six guys currently in the line up need to pull their collective heads out - Yuli and Brantley are the only two who have shown up tonight

A quality start. It's playoff baseball prelims. Need to close.

These fans out in centerfield are yelling "springer sucks" every 5 seconds .... but I bet they would trade their entire outfield for him
