Alex Presley had a nice return to the majors with a triple and a homer tonight. He mashed in the minors when he was sent down with an OPS over 1.000. Maybe he'll be better this time round than he was in April.

The Mets had the lead in the 8th, 10th, and 12th innings, and still managed to lose... I'm going to bed... Hopefully when I wake up tomorrow I don't hate Derek Holland with the fire of a thousand suns...

Salty is a bad man :-D
I got him as a chuck-in before the start of the 2011 season in one league, and he and I have been solid mates ever since ;-D :-B

I still think Lawrie will take 4 (SB, AVG, R, and RBI), but obviously, I only need 3. Looked good tonight in the leadoff spot, certainly.

looking at some numbers on fangraphs, he shouldn't be this bad.
he has 61.8 LOB%.
fairly high .327 BABIP.
but his walks are too high at 5.07 BB/9.
his LD% is high at 25.7


Staying patient with him. With what he's been giving, tonight wasn't bad at all. Biggest number tonight was 8k/1bb.

It will come... (I hope :-? )

ive watched every single one of timmy's starts this year.
the reason his LOB% is so high is because the balls that get put in play are all smoked.
the guys that he doesnt strike out or walk are just hitting lasers all over the field.
thats also why his BABIP is so high.
Its not just bad luck. Its poor location #1, not being able to throw the fastball by anyone #2, inconsistent slider #3, and bad luck #4
