    Woo making his return today after putting up impressive numbers in his rehab starts.

    These K's really are the worst though.

    They simply cannot hit. They refused to go after star hitters; too cheap. It's a 500 team with a great starting pitching staff. Relief pitching aint great though. Same reason as above; too cheap. A lot of fans think Logan and Kirby will be gone once they have the chance for a payday.

    Looking forward to seeing if this kid for the Pirates is as great as he looks. First MLB start.

    the A's unexpectedly decent start to the season is getting demolished by the Mariners. The Athletics may want to move to Sacramento before this season ends.

    Kirby plunked Salvador. That's just mean. The Royals can't do anything with a sore best player.

    Julio has really pissed me off on the base paths this year. He's had calls turned over and been called out three times that I can remember right off the top of my head. Speed alone does not make one a good baserunner. Have some damn awareness out there.

    I was only listening but he was putting them away. Rick Rizz (it's short for charisma) sounded impressed.

    Just got a notification that JP left his rehab start after being HBP on his right hand. I was looking forward to getting him back in the lineup. Hopefully this doesn't delay that.

    98mph splinker looked insane. Consistently hit 100-102 with 15+ inches of gloveside run. Great control and command. We'll see how the sidearm delivery holds up

    None of the recent signings are worth shit. Horrible off season. You get what you pay for. How about finding a new goddamn hitting coach and staff? Do something for chrissakes.

    There's certainly plenty to complain about, but if we can beat the Orioles tomorrow and keep 1st in the west, I promise I won't complain for a week!
