    If he came to the plate, then they certainly batted around.

    I'd like to see us offer him a QO and have him accept it. We'd have him another year to keep CF warm for Almora. Hopefully he kicks it up a notch and is ready and the real deal by 2017.

    Batting through the order is, 9

    Batting around is, 10

    If the guy who batted first does not bat again, they did not "bat around."

    How is this even a debate?

    I'm honestly at a loss for words with this game, and with this team. This is one special group of young players.

    I don't remember where I read it, but it claimed that if a team has two lead off type guys, batting the pitcher 8th generates 2 additional runs over 162 games. So why not do it???

    2013 was an anomaly. The coaching staff tried to chance him, and it backfired. He's an extremely good SS. He led all SS in average last year and was third in OPS.

    Your assessments are correct regarding Russell and a possible big trade. But I'm gonna be honest, I'll be EXTREMELY disappointed if we only have 83 wins.

    I have 4 for today and 4 for tomorrow in the lower level outfield box, section 106 if anybody wants them for face value. I can't leave work to meet so you would have to come to me near Lyons.

    Since they brought up Rosscup after sending La Stella down, it appears to me that they are going to wait until the Cubs are on the road to call Bryant up. Due to the injuries to he and...

    Dave.......as far as options go, a player has a finite number of option years in which he may be moved between the major and minor leagues an unlimited number of times. No "option" would be used up.
