I’ve been taking Neil Walker for granted. The guy is on fire.
Speaking of ‘taking for granted’, how about defense? Clint Barmes and Gorkys Hernandez saved that game tonight.
Andrew McCutchen .360, Melky Cabrera .358
Michael McKenry has developed quite the power stroke. Is it for real or should we just enjoy the ride?
Pedro Alvarez continues to impress me considerably. After striking out twice to Vogelsong on outside pitches, to catch up and hit a double to RF was impressive. I do know that Vogelsong left that pitch out over the plate a bit, but Pedro pushed it by choice. The guy is locked in. Funny that the wall jutted up a bit to rob him of a HR.
What did Jason Grilli write in the dirt? He seemed to be looking at it before each pitch and struck out the side. I love that guy. Deserved the All Star consideration. Showed he can close after the talk of an All Star game and then turning in that performance.
If we end up with a losing season, I might kill myself. (Emphasis on “might”).
