Save my day for me Clayton!

On the bright side, my team is hitting .433 with a 1.121 OPS today with 5 SB's ;-D ;-D

So talk about it. :-b

I hope his owner gets antsy so I can unload Valverde or Casilla.

Perhaps because he gave up 2H and 0R in his previous 5 appearances. He's not out of the woods yet but he's shown some level of competency.

Hey man, was wondering if you could provide any insight on Lawrie so far this season. He's obviously been a bit disappointment, but at the same time he hasn't been awful insomuch as he hasn't really had any major slumps. There's just no power, not only in the way of HR's but extra base hits period. So, what's the inside scoop?

He's swinging regularly at outside pitches and showing little of the plate discipline that he did last year in AAA and the majors. He's a naturally talented enough hitter that he's been able to maintain his average despite falling behind regularly in counts, but he's resorted to slapping hits for singles to do it.

Really, pitchers are throwing him a lot more breaking balls and less strikes and he hasn't adjusted to that yet. Given his talent, I would expect him to adjust eventually this season, but I couldn't tell you when that will happen. Could be a while yet.

Is this real life? Brooks Conrad hits a home run in 7 out of 8 games in the minors. What does he do in the majors to split this stretch? Go 0-21
