He's quietly on a 10 game hitting streak and a 6 game walking streak. He's raised his OPS to the .890s and I didn't even notice.

When do we get to shoot Lackey into space

Also a 10 game win streak or something would be cool

Christ almighty. I guess we should get all the bad mojo out in one game (that we proceed to win despite it)

I see we're doing everything we possibly can to minimize the damage having multiple base runners an inning can do

Hendricks looks like his old self.

Offense needs to self-consciously work the count though. To be fair, Cole is locating his pitches very well.

Re: 4/24 World Champs (Anderson) @ Pirates (Kuhl) 6pm ESPN

Watching clips again and the most encouraging thing is that the Heyward home run didn't look particularly well hit off the bat. I remember seeing him pull pitches on the other side of the plate and that kind of swing last year resulted in a 250 foot lazy flyball - now it went over the fence.

Re: I like Gold Gloves and I cannot lie: the Jason Heyward thread

Its April 24th and Jason Heyward got his 3rd home run of the season.

He didn't get his 3rd home run until June 6th last year. (He didn't hit his first until May 17th)

You're not allowed to let Bronson Arroyo in 2017 off the hook. You must punish him
