I don't care who starts at catcher. As long as it says C in eligibility I'm fine with it. Someone that blew out a knee doesn't need to be catching anymore anyway.

Tell that to Joe Maddon and the Cubs' coaching staff. With Grandpa Rossy retired, they've been strongly considering slotting Schwarber as the third catcher so he can get more playing time.

That'd be fine. You want your best lineup at the end of the game, then he can catch a couple innings. He'll spend 95% of his time in the outfield.

That's because they fired Dave Stewart and got someone who can build a team.

Yup. True, that, Boosh.

I'm convinced the Rockies can't keep up this pace. Their rookie pitchers will hit a wall probably around next month. Arizona, however, is rolling. Their hitting is tops in the league, and if they stay HEALTHY, there's no reason they can't win 100 games.

The Dodgers.... not sure. They're looking mighty good this year.

At this moment, the gap between the wildcard teams and the ones below the line is eight games. That'll probably keep climbing.

I thought the Rockies would falter too but with Bud Black now managing (he's Tony LaRussa compared to Walt Weiss) and a very good off-season, they seem to have broken their typical "good April before falling apart" run. I think they'll stick around.

How big a midseason acquisition is JD Martinez looking like now?

Four home runs.

FOUR. HOME. RUNS.

In a row.

Going for the even dozen tonight. :D
