I'm a Call fan, but I have not been impressed with his bunting. 

Abrams running the bases like a veteran Nat
No one has been bunting the last 20 years. Why are we expecting them to suddenly be good at it?

Williams has gone more than 5.1 IP once in his starts.  Davey has a short leash with him.

Bunting just scored. For the Leafs. Good night for bunting.

I had zero confidence when Edwards came in. I'm an idiot.  Nice job.

With Edwards getting the 6th, who gets the 7th and 8th?  one will be Harvey, but who else?

Davey broke Thompson
he was good yesterday, but I'm not so sure about whether he's good on consecutive days.  It looked like he settled down after the first two batters.  Velocity down a bit, right?

This team is fun to watch at times.  Love the enthusiasm from the young guys.   They've been more entertaining than expected.

It's the joy of watching over-achievement.  None of these guys are established MLB players and quite a few probably are nearly out of the majors. That makes it fun. 

So does Hunter Harvey heat.
