Is now the time to worry about players? I am wondering if Kyle Seager will figure out how to hit a ball for this season. By the way, who thinks Adrian Gonzalez hits another homer tomorrow after a day off?

I'm not going to make any "panic" move until at least early May. And I'm going to keep telling myself that over and over and over as I look directly at Jed Gyorko...

Oh, and I wouldn't do anything rash with Seger yet. Got to give hime a little more time, at least.

Rough start in my H2H league. 4-16 so far. Thanks ayebatter !+)
Hitting besides Trout has been pretty awful and missing Kershaw really hurts. I've got another two weeks before I start to panic. :-o

Voted Rays for the best team in the AL East.

I voted Red Sox. I don't know if they have the best team but they have BIG PAPI, who unlike your manager can hit the ball over the wall. B-)

I have to say I'm really enjoying owning Dee Gordon. Last night after a single he stole second base before a pitch was even thrown. As the fielders were walking back to their positions they turned their backs on him for a few seconds and POOF he's on second base. :-B

Also, the Billy Hamilton effect is going to allow Votto to see a lot of fastballs in the 2 hole. With Billy on 1st and Votto up he launched a mammoth home run to center on the first pitch, knowing, like everyone else in the park a fastball was coming. Hopefully the same will happen in the coming days with Gordon/Puig.

Sitting in first with 124.5 pts in a 14 teamer. Team hit .320 with 6 hr, 13 runs, and 17 rbi yesterday and I didn't gain any ground as I'm already winning all those categories.

Homer Bailey is responsible for four of them. His location has been off with a couple of pitches being left high to be hammered for HR.

That rain sure is coming down in Cincinnati now.
