Is it really that surprising that Jay Bruce hit 3 homers in one week?

He hit 32 bombs and had 97 RBI last year as a 24 year old. He is the quickest to 100 HR's in the Red's 120+ year history. Maybe that's why you're in last?

He also only hit .256

I'm in last because my players are under preforming something horrible. Joey Votto isn't hitting at all.

Yeah, my team is doing terrible.

No need to get hostile Hokie, I'm already a broken man.

.256 is a pretty typical average for a power hitter...

Wasn't trying to be hostile, but if you lose 8-2 it wasn't because of Jay Bruce.

I also stopped paying attention everyday, been a busy school week. See, I tried that low average, high reward thing last year and Ryan Howard fucking killed me.

My team hits no fucking HR's. I think I'm jinxed in fantasy now, it's not like I didn't draft some big hitters.

Good battle last week Toys! Cant believe we ended up with the exact same ERA.

And I am very glad Dogs Stole Pujols in the draft. Matt Kemp is a BEAST!!

The Buccos finally busted one open last night. Great game. McDonald looked fantastic on the mound, 10 Ks and only 2 walks, 2ERs.

Pedro Alvarez is finally showing signs of life!!! It's much too early to think he might finally become a superstar like he's supposed to, but damn, he CRUSHED a dinger last night. He's been struggling to get around on fastballs and struggles worse against lefties...last night he hit a high fastball from a lefty over the wall! yay!

Yeah man, that drop was nuts. McCutcheon made some comments after the game that he wished he could have taken the loss instead of Correia. It was really an inexcusable error.

I'm glad you had fun at the game. My kids ran the bases after a Buccos game last year and loved it. I went down on the field w/ them and thought that part was the bees knees too. Peeped into the dugouts and whatnot.

Nice. We're trying to lock up tickets to a Sunday game in Pittsburgh. May 27th is Andrew McCutcheon camoflauge replica jersey day for the kids, and it's the one I've got my sights on so far.

Against the Cubbies too, so it should be a W.

camoflage jerseys = worrying your daughter wears this someday

lol hokie. Hopefully it never progresses to that extreme, but I plan on taking my little girl hunting with me when she's older. I see nothing wrong with a little realtree mixed into the wardrobe.
