That one was hard to swallow. 1 inning blunder

Brewers were playing so good up until the 9th too. McGehee should have committed to the tag out at 3rd and that game would have ended at 6-3 Brewers.

The more things change, the more they stay the same I guess.

That and Axford needs to disguise his pitches better. You can see his fastball grip plain as day the second it is out of his glove.

He will be a solid player if he stays healthy. He fits better down in the lineup not leading off like he was in Detroit. That was moronic.

No doubt. The guy has some nasty breaking stuff. He just needs to hide the ball better so hitters can't see it coming.

I liked Axford. Of course I was rooting for the Reds. I wouldn't get down on him so quickly. Didn't he spend a large chunk of spring training recovering from food poisoning or something?

Yeah, he was down most of the spring.

Wanna talk about nasty stuff, Saito. Those sliders were insane!

Yeah that was no fun. I am waiting for Aroldis Chapman to get some work in this series. He is always fun to watch.

Watching the Cubs-Pirates ATM. What's with Dempster's little glove-waggle every pitch?? He's been doing that forever and it drives me buggy. At least the Cubs are getting beat.
