OK-- he was wild in one inning; then hit hard on first pitches in another-- and 5 runs is too much.
But then he found his groove, and it's April-- OK?? I'm not gonna be too hard on him or any starter not named Esteban.
1-4 was 2-16 with two measly singles.
Thomas went yard; the Gamer too; Swish kept it up; Kendall hit ball hard all night; and DJ's off the Schneid.
Oue favorite whipping boy-- the #3 hitter who shouldn't be-- is starting to prove the critics right.
Chavy has the power, but the average is sinking down near 250. Kots is still OK.
But mark Ellis? Show me his first 3 full years in the bigs-- don't tell me his name-- and ask me how this year will go.
What you're seeing, I'm afraid.
Sure it's but 11 games.. but..
what about Bradley as a leadoff hitter? And swish in the 2 hole? chavy3rd and the Hurt 4th?
One final thought:
with Admiral Halsey and Captain Kirk already in tow, if we trade for Matthews-- Sarge, Jr-- bring back Houk ( the colonel) and Mauch (the little General) to manage every other day-- put Don "Private Benjamin" Hahn in the outfield--
where's our Lieutenant??
