Except for the .485 OBP on the season.

That's fine and all, I'm in a walks league. But he's not helping himself by getting into bad counts consistently by being ridiculously patient. I've seen a ton of Hamilton-esque swings this past week because he's trying to protect 0-2, 1-2 after letting hittable pitches go/not attempting to drive the ball to left field. I guess it's a good problem to complain about, but it's frustrating to watch.

I'm calling my shot. Today is the day my offense finally breaks out.


I talk a good game but my teams won't back it up. Another day of uselessness. Good thing I have Harper on one team and Upton on one or it would be a complete disaster. Maybe things will flip in May.

This times 1,000. 2-0 pitch taking right down the middle, next pitch outside corner take, next pitch 1 foot outside swing. He and Jose Bautista are driving me nuts this year by being too selective.

First 3 homer day this season for me. Still -0.5 on the day. I'm in last place, but just traded for WMB and Rizzo. I know they are about to breakout.

I predict Harvey has his worst start of the year. 8 IP, 2 ER, 6 H.

I hope so, I own both of these clowns~.

It's not like Votto and Bautista have been any good the past few seasons with this stupid "patient" approach. For your sake, I hope they're checking this message board for hitting advice.

Mauer does the same thing that Votto does. You can complain all you want that he missed drivable pitches but these guys are very productive every year.

Hope Bailey keeps the job when Hanrahan comes back.
