    yay Eric indeed!

  2. Mike R. says:

    I know it’s nitpicking, but Gardner was 2 for 5, not 1 for 5.

  3. Jamal G. says:

    Hey today is the one year anniversary of Mark Buehrle’s no-no.

  4. jose says:

    question, what happened to the guy we drafted who can throw with both arms? just out of curiosity…

  5. goyankz says:

    I know it’s early, and he’s 19, but Jose Tabata is slugging .295 on the year.

    • Mike A. says:

      You said it yourself, it’s still early and he’s only 19. Chillax, we shouldn’t worry about his power until at least … his 21st birthday.

      And besides, Russ Martin, Andruw Jones, Jose Guillen, Troy Tulowitzki, Robinson Cano, David Ortiz and Jack Cust are slugging under .295 too.

  6. vinny-b says:

    is it me? Or does AJax look like a future MLB player

  7. YES says:

    Austin Jackson is doing better then Tabata right now.
    He’s only a year older then Tabata. and he’s still pretty raw. Hasn’t played a lot of baseball.
    Tabata has played a lot of baseball at least compared to how much Jackson has played.
    Don’t get me wrong I still like Tabata but also think Jackson is the better overall prospect.

  8. RichYF says:

    I was at the game last night. Chase pitched a gem. They were up 8-2 so he went out for the 8th and got hit a bit.

    Tabata looks like a BEAST. AJax is a little wirey, but he looks quick. We’re going back on Sunday for McCutchen. That ought to be a blast. Oh, and Dave Robertson (I didn’t know who it was at the time) is so lights out it’s hilarious. They had 0% chance vs. him.

  9. Brian says:

    Anything to James Cooper’s .444 AVG so far? He doesn’t ever get accounted for much…what of him?

  10. Christopher says:

    Gardner was 2-5 last night, not 1-5.
