    We've been playing on the road a lot lately, when a lot of those good stats were accumulated... might just be the timing of the team warming up.... I hope. I'd love to see that kind of production at Safeco! Oh yeah, and wow....!

    its been lovely to watch lately....u get the feel if we are down 2 or 3 we can come back, and the team looks like they have that confidence too.

    We are young and it shows, i think it is mental and we press a little much at home so bringing up our offensive stats at home is the next step in our growth.

    I didnt catch much the last 2 games but Smoak went hitless, i was actually gaining confidence in him, he was getting in hitters counts, taking walks and killing mistakes.

    I saw the end of our last game vs Angels (one of the best wins of the year), smoak (with Olivo) were the only ones not to get a hit but during the handshakes he was very upbeat, supportive of his teammates, sometimes young guys can get poopy pants when they are not the ones shinning, anyways I really like everything I see in him from an intangible stand point.


    It has struck me, Smoak must've watched ALOT of Chipper Jones growing up, their batting stance, and manerisms are almost identical....Surprised i havent heard that before and took me as long to see lol, great guy to model yourself after.

    I don't know if this will really help any because of the air but i suggest we bring in the fences a little bit i think it will help with some of there confidence.

    We saw Wells crush a ball and Montero a couple of times to dead center and they should have been gone.

    The Met's did it and David Wright has been hitting the cover off the ball.

    It's funny you say that about Chipper because that's what Langerhans said that Smoak reminds him of Chipper.

    You could have listed the most obscure split stat scenarios out there and I would have never guessed the M's would be near the top in hr for any of them, but on the road #1 in hr and 2b? Shocking.

    ...and this is despite Olivo playing every day and Ryan being one of the worst hitters of all time so far.

    I miss Langerhans.

    Smoak grew up right by Georgia and the Braves were probably the second most popular team of the 90's so it would make perfect sense he saw plenty of Chipper.

    I do NOT miss Langerhans.

    In other news, move in the damn fence at the Safe please.

    Don't worry about the fences, just change nature. Much easier.

    Would have to compare it to how other teams are playing here vs at their home.
