Vargas v. Gonzalez
Ah, the we must bat Anderson lead off because he's fast. Even though he's not an OBP guy yet. Not that there is anyone really "worthy" of that role but at least Saladino, who is fast and has 100+ points more in OBP so far, would make more logical sense. Man is this teams offense numbers terrible. No way can this team be close to being good with that offense production. They lead the AL in ERA though... hoping this above expectations pitching can find good trades for Shields, MiGo, Holland, Q (if he gets his shit together), Robertson, Jones, Jennings and Putnam. Not sure if I've ever seen 8 pitchers from one team get traded in a season but now would be the time to start.
Winning baseball strategy is irrelevant when you're not trying to win. Bat Anderson leadoff so he gets 4 or 5 PAs every game. Also, play Davidson against RHP more often.
Apparently Saladino K's too much to bat leadoff or something.
Plenty of good seats available.
Plenty of bad seats available too.
His team-leading 4th HR in only 35 ABs.
But let's keep running Asche out there.
Renteria the cuck
Stone and Benetti were saying that Renteria wants to just use Davidson against lefties for the time being.
And Frazier batting 5th instead of Avi
RBI double by Davidson.
3 singles for Anderson. 6-1 good guys.
Davidson just short of another dinger, settles for one of the longest singles you'll ever see.
8 run inning, 12-1
god forbid they ever give Q anything close to this kind of run support
Davidson has 3 HR and 11 RBI in 23 ABs v. RHP
Plus a SB and 3 R scored. Too bad he's batting leadoff.
Ventura part 2
Anthony Swarzak in. (who?)
Swarzak was one of the top rated prospects in the Twins' farm system before a fifty-game suspension for violation of Minor League drug policy on April 20, 2007 sidetracked his career. He tested positive for marijuana.
He tested positive for marijuana on 4/20. Unfortunate.
