After watching last night I think it might be wise to trade Polanco to an AL team where he can D.H.
His attempts at fielding have always been painful, but he’s descended to new depths.

One the bright side, Lyles and Musgrove are in the top five in NL ERA. Starting pitching is definitely the Bucs' strong suit so far this season.

The amount of stones the Bucs have shown so far in 19 is impressive stuff. Decimated by injury and they keep on grinding.


Reynolds and Tucker have added some serious juice to the roster and Mr Bell has found his stroke to say the least 8-)

What serious juice has Tucker added? Outside of the home run in his first game he has offered nothing. He has struck out a 1/3 of his plate appearances and has a lower OPS than what Erik Gonzalez had. Thus far it looks like Tucker isn't quite ready to face big league pitching night in and night out.

I think that homerun will give him a pass from fans for at least a few more months. Plus he's keeping Erik fucking Gonzalez and whatever other shitheap they would otherwise roll out at SS out of the starting lineup.

Gonzalez is injured.

Newman is who is being kept on the bench and has got an OPS of .898. Granted, it's just 13 AB...but Tucker coming into the night was at .208/.255/.333 (.588).

With, as Pro pointed out, 17 Ks in 52 AB.

Brian Reynolds is the rookie who's added some juice... .405/.436/.649 (1.085).
