    Trying not to get excited about Taylor (no homo), but man, if today wasn't just a tease, and he and Max both have bounce-back seasons, this team just may compete. That's a big if, but one worth noting.

    Taylor isn't gonna have a bounce back anything. This is just the positive regression to the norm. He couldn't hit .100 forever.

    He's got a sweet spot down and especially with breaking stuff. He can't touch anything with any heat above the waist. Classic slider speed bat.

    Best win of the young season. Down 7-2 with a spring training lineup against a team that had won seven straight........no problem. Nice to see the kids contributing to the comeback and nice work from the pen. Ferguson really nutted up to close out the 8th.

    We complain Peralta and Heyward (with good reason), but Thompson isn't much better. He has occasional power bursts, but other than that he's another K machine. Brought in to hit lefties, but he can't lay a glove on them.

    Agree, especially about Thompson. He's had his Andy Warhol moment, and good for him. But everyday player...nah. Can play D fairly well, but I don't see him much above Mendoza...at best.

    yeah but he sure has an intense glare for the opposing pitcher storming back to the dugout after a strikeout
    always makes me feel like he'll get him next time and that's a guy w the right attitude

    • Tony Gonsolin who will be making his 2023 debut today in Pittsburgh.
    nice
    preparing myself for a thor-like performance…
    you know, something in the neighborhood of 3 innings/7 runs

    Total puke lineup. From Heyward batting 3rd to Peralta being a designated "hitter" to not being sold on CT figuring things out. Why is Wynns on the roster? I thought Will was supposed to be cleared but either way that AAA catcher is a better bet.

    Will be nothing short of amazing if they can scratch out another win.

    This might be the consistently ridiculous and clown ass umpiring I have ever seen...just like a cartoon.
    There's gotta be something in place for incompetency as rampant as this.
    Somebody has to review this shit and dole out suspensions or something.
    Fuck that " human element" that makes the game so charming...it's just shitting on it.

    So boring watching the top three hitters at the top of this lineup for quite a while.
    What faggots.
