CMart gets thru a 21 - pitch 1st inning, including a HBP of Bryant after starting him 0 - 2.

CMart doesn't look great. Sucks since we actually grabbed a run off Arietta.

Yikes! This team is so frustrating to watch. The starting pitching needs to gain some traction and the offense needs to gain some consistency.

I think they need some juice, they need to find a spark from somewhere, either from someone on the current roster or via trade.

With no one besides Molina firmly entrenched in a position, I'd trade for the best player available come trade deadline or sooner.

Well this game is close again.

Holliday with a 3 run homer in the 6th and now Adams homers off Wood in the 7th to make it 9-8.

Clean up that starting pitching and we're right there. Missing Cooney and Gonzales more than ever right now.

Missing Wacha, Martinez and Garcia. All 3 need to get their act together.

I didn't get to watch the whole game and didn't get to hear if Carpenter is injured or just getting a day off. If he is ok I was wondering why Carpenter didn't pinch hit instead of Gyorko?

I've said this for some time now and it holds true every season. Without quality starting pitching, a quality bullpen and solid defense we will go nowhere. If we had these factors working in our favor our offense would be adequate. Yes, we need that feared bat in the lineup, but without pitching and defense another bat really wouldn't matter much.... 8-)

Heard his wife went into labor. I was wondering why he was getting a day off against the Cubs in the first place.

Yep. Wife is having a baby.

Could have used him there.

There's so much what if in this game. Oh allows his first homer at the worst time ever. Martinez can't stop the bleeding in the 2nd. Man.
