How about Juan Samuel?

The Marlins currently have 5, practically 6, players batting over .300 halfway through the season. Only one isn't a starter, Ichiro. He's batting .350 and is nearly eligible in at bats to be considered a starter.

Giancarlo Stanton is batting .211 and among the lowest in the league for eligible batters.

Why, oh why?

Tonight's the night, it is out of our control now. We know not to have high expectations, but still, the anticipation is there. There's no denying it. Nearly 5 years have passed.

Mets send down Conforto, call up Nimmo, and (re)sign Jose Reyes.

A few highlights from the Turn Back the Clock game between the Cardinals and Mariners.

Those Mariner throwbacks are a harsh reminder of how much they sucked for nearly their first 20 seasons.

We took 3 of 4 from the first place Cubs. Granted, we have a 4 game series with the last place Braves coming up. We are so bad against the Braves, it will work itself out.

Cubs are in a pretty bad rut right now, can't be explained away just by injuries.

We lost 5 of 7 to the pitiful Braves and somehow gained 2 games in the standings.

Something has to give tonight I suppose.

Market correction.

They couldn't keep that pace up forever. They'll be just fine.

You got us at the right time. This team absolutely sucks right now, especially with anyone on base. We've got to be like 0-17 with RISP and two outs over the past week.

For instance, bases loaded with Thor struggling in the 2nd. The result? Nada.

I keep pulling the MLB threads up to see what's being discussed, but I never have anything to to add.

I used to be a huge baseball fan. When I was a little kid in 1985 I would practice Ricky Henderson's snatch catch when I was barely big enough to hold a glove. I would emulate every move Dave Winfield would make from the time he stepped in the box through his swing in t-ball. I'd practice the pitching motion of Yankees enemy Doc Gooden for hours on end at the park. I listened to or watched almost every Yankees game from 85'- 2011. I'd even put on the Mets when the Yanks were off. I had a handle on the stats of almost every player on any team for quite a while there.

My interest in baseball dropped almost completely as the Core Four retired. I barely know the starting lineup anymore. I don't know if I got spoiled or the game has changed but I just can't get into it anymore.
