Obie can't be much worse than he was last season. Every time he came in, I expected a whole heap of runs to be scored on him. He frankly is very very average. He hits better than he pitches...and being a pitcher in the bigs, that's not a compliment.

I'm all for giving Obermueller a chance. Having Damian Miller's vote of confidence certainly helps. Give him four starts, and if he tanks, we have plenty of options to replace him. Besides, he pitched well out of the pen, we can always throw JDLR out there and put obie in his place (assuming JDLR makes the team).

it's funny, last year I was unsure of Obermueller entering the season, but probably 90% here were in love with him. I see his potential and am intrigued, but now at least 90% here can't stand him

Bot of 1st (Haren pitching)

Clark E-5 (Clark on 1st) (Clark Steals 2nd)

Hall 6-3 (Clark stays on 2nd)

Overbay BB (runners advance on wild pitch)

Jenkins 5-3 (runners stay put)

3T0 F-9 (sliding catch by Swisher)


Can this example be put in the discussion of why making contact, by itself, means little? Not a K in sight and a runner on third is stranded with less than 2 outs.

I know this has prob. been brought up, sorry if I missed the memo. But what is the deal with the spring training games on MB.com? I listened to the first 4 or so games and now they want you to pay? Was it just a teaser to get you to buy the mlb audio season package?

3TO three total outcomes. The walk, The home run & the Strike Out.


the three outcomes in baseball that do not involve the other 7 fielders. Out of all the players in MLB history, I belive Russel has the highest percentage of the 3TO.
