Looking much more impressive than I expected. Maybe Shelton really was the problem all along.


Seems like every time I turn on the TV they're getting the kind of timely hit that's been eluding us since 2009. If this continues for an entire season then we can definitively point to Shelton. I can't say I expected a 5-2 record after the first 7 games. I would've figured 4-3 at even my most optimistic.

This game is an enormous cluster ****. You guys have taken your 3-0 lead and done everything in your power to give it away. The Yankees have not deserved any of the four runs they put up on the board so far. It's comical how bad they are playing.

The infield defense is as bad as the Devil Rays this year.

Rays bats are bipolar. It's either 10+ runs or 0.

Bummed out that I missed the grand slam last night. I didn't tune in until the 5th inning.

The Rays should consider themselves lucky to be .500 right now. Holy crap they need to get it together. Sloppy is probably the nicest thing I can say about the year so far

That was a fun ending.


The bats have been pretty good this year. Even in games we've lost we are getting the hits. Just still leaving a lot of guys on base. Our pitching has been very hit or miss. Last night was exactly Archers problem last year. 4 great innings and then it falls apart on him. Luckily we were able to hit our way out of it.

As you may have heard, MLB Commissioner is trying to shorten the length of baseball games. I hope the game doesn't end in ties

That would be annoying.


How bout if you're tied after 9 you go home run Derby style. Player of your choice (or go through the order) goes up and has 3 minutes to hit as many bombs as possible. Kinda like a hockey shoot out. Games shorter + fans love home runs. Win win!!! Lol

Or set up some milk cans at home plate and have the closers knock them down.

Yeah Cobb didn't even try to aim that. Panicked. Should have just held the ball to stop play.

Every time I go out for a smoke, Beckham jacks one.

I swear, this happens all the time. I think I've seen 4 runs scored this season.
