    2 other observations while we watch the end of this one. Even though he gave up 4, I still consider this a move in the right direction for Julio. He looks like he's figured out that he's not a power pitcher anymore. Also, Bautista may hit the Mendoza Line and never be in after the 7th on D, but his homer is the difference right now. It's not always awful to have a pure power guy if his OBP counters his awful AVG.

    Second this. He was atrocious, three different parts of the plate were constantly switching from strikes to balls and back again. How bout the huevos on Minter there though? Big confidence boost for him. Hell of a monday afternoon game.

    Listened to the last two innings on the radio. That was tense.

    Plate ump was just brought up to MLB last summer. Haven't seen him much. Not a good showing today.

    What is the deal with Dansby?

    Even some beat writers have remarked on the shocking scarcity of info.

    I think he comes off the DL today.

    I was thinking about this over the weekend and I believe it may be a case of "We have guys who can fill in and we are winning, so let's give them plenty of time to get completely healthy."

    There is no need to bring either guy back the moment they are eligible to come back because they just aren't needed right now. It is more important to get both completely healthy as it is a long season ahead.

    He's eligible today but not returning today. I've read maybe by the end of the week.

    Man screw the fucking challenge. We are on the wrong side every time.

    Holy shit, those 2 calls back to back. Unbelievable.

    These umps are TURRIBLE. Also, MLB might as well get rid of the replay system. Doesn't work.

    Infield fly Holbrook on the missed call at third.

    Gohara is huge. Holy moly.

    Cubs challenge overturns Acuna’s homer to dead center. Foul ball.

    Without blaming the umps which I easily could, I am very worried that the back of our bullpen is gonna kill this season. I hope Minter gets control fast because Viz has had his opportunity. Maybe we give Carle a shot, or Gohara once he's gotten a few appearances.

    NFL can't figure out what a catch is and ML can't figure out the difference between safe and out. Plus, the damn HP moron gave Cubs their run as Folty struck out Addison and didn't get the call. My gosh the ball went diagonally across the plate from front right corner to back left corner. Unbelievable. 3 total misses in one inning for the blind mice. and the reply idiot.
