that was a lackluster loss. i thought it was gonna be a smooth sailing, easy w, with the way we were hitting it hard in the first.some positives:dukes defense in right >>>>>>>>>> big ears. his instincts are incredible and he plays any position with what i like to call, effortless ease.r.z.'s bat is definitely heating up!
I haven't seen one play Dukes has made that wasn't routine. Yes Kearns dropped that routine fly, but that happens every blue moon. You can't blame the Mets game on him. Church's ball was ripped and knuckle balling. A very tough play for any outfielder. But you're right, Kearns needs to find his bat NOW>
...Dukes needs to find his f***ing bat though.
dukes made a sliding catch look so simple. big ears probably would've dove like a dumbass and allowed an inside the park homer. dukes also effortlessly drifted back to catch a ball at the warning track. he also nonchalantly cruised into foul territory to catch a tailing ball.
We had 12 men on base tonight, but we lacked clutch hitting. I'll take 12 men on base any day from this team. Just gotta knock more in. This isn't a hang your head type of loss. Just gotta go get 'em tomorrow. We are still something like 10-8 in our last 18. That's not too shabby.
I'll say this though, Milledge is *not* a middle-of-the-order hitter.
Definitely not at this point. I'm still curious to see what his numbers will look like at the end of the season, though. I'm not as worried about him as some of the others.
if Paulie Walnuts or Fat Johnny see the field again this year, there should be mutiny.
Jesus looks great. Easily the best hitter on our team right now, and if Paulie Walnuts or Fat Johnny see the field again this year, there should be mutiny.
on the positive side, Milledge had two hits today.yeah, they were infield hits that he beat out, but still. it's a positive in my book.
He needs to go back to hitting in the 2 spot immediately. Milledge is terrible with RISP but he seems to do better leading off an inning or with the bases empty.
i say the hell with dukes and millz, send them to minors for more "seasoning" and call up alex escobar and ryan langerhans .maybe call dukes and millz back up in september, MAYBE. an outfield consisting of big ears, rob mackowiak, willie harris, and the additions of langerhans and escobar instant offensive jolt!
...though, I think Milledge and Dukes would be better defensively at LF and CF respectively.
