One double, one good catch. Not the worst intro ever, but far from the best.
Oh, and Dodgers swept the Nationals.
I think it's stupid that the Dodgers fans were booing him. He's a teenager. A cocky teenager, but a teenager none the less. MLB pitching, a good veteran leadership, could humble him a bit. He has a ton of talent, and I hope it comes to fruition. I enjoy watching great players.
Ah, I had to leave before the 9th last night, so I didn't get to see that. And I watch the games on silent while listening to records, but that's pretty shitty of the Dodgers fans. I thought it was cool to get to see a young prospect play his first games.
Dodgers currently have the best record in the National League, and the second best in the entire league. And they were predicted preseason to be the worst team in the NL West. SO MUCH FOR PREDICTIONS!
Yeah I don't think I read any predictions like that. Most predictions I saw had LA, SF, and AZ in a close three-way race, with the Rockies a good ways behind them and the Padres way way out of it.
How did you change your name?
Pinch hitting only plz.
Diamondbacks eye Vladimir Guerrero
Typical LA sports fan.
(but, really...I can attest to the fact that Giants fans are nearly as non-commital towards the end of the games. sure, weather is often a factor, but they often leave in droves as well)
Upcoming: 04/11/14-04/13/14 - Coachella Weekend One; 04/18/14-04/20/14 - Coachella Weekend Two; 08/19/14 - NIN/Soundgarden (Isleta Amphitheater - Albuquerque, NM)
The debut of the Johnny Damon era for the Indians is being delayed by rain. I'm really hoping adding him and getting Choo back gives their offense a spark. They haven't hit a home run in almost two weeks and have somehow overtaken the Tigers and White Sox for first in the process. If the Tribe can get some offense going, they could win that division.
I know it's early, but can we talk about how awesome Joe Saunders has been this season? 5 games pitched with a .90 ERA. Best start for any pitcher in Dbacks history.
EDIT* Currently the best ERA in MLB.
I've been watching Saunders in fantasy as he's available in our league, but not sure if I'm ready to trust him as historically his stats haven't been there at all. Guess the revelation this year for him is that he dropped the inconsistent slider going with a three, instead of four, pitch rotation. Did pick up Jackson before tonight's game and so far, so good. ERA has been getting rammed lately.
^ Yeah, definitely have to take his history into consideration. He's the last pitcher on our rotation that I expected to start this well.
there is another one starting strong for AZ. Miley?. Towers always had a keen eye for pitchers*.
*not that he is to be given credit for those guys. He'll put together a good staff and bullpen though (per evidenced in San Diego).
