Anyone else noticing that this team is getting good on basepaths: stealing, moving runners, taking advantage of mistakes? I'm impressed.

Now they just need to do it consistently and this team could compete.

That was a great inning for Garza, obviously, but hopefully he can keep it under control.

(And by "it," I mean his Hulk-like tendency that bubbles up from within when he gets excited.)

Maybe that's why he swings the bat the way he does.

Anybody see Stewart ask the ump if a ball he swung at last night was a strike? Sure sign he's not seeing the ball too well.

Because he doesn't make 20 million dollars a year.
