    Default Tabata

    Chuck Finder in his live game blog summed things up very well...

    "First of all, let's talk Tabata here.

    The rookie made two gutsy plays. He legged that hit into the left-center gap into a double. Then he stole third. That set up the Walker single through a drawn-in infield for a 3-3 tie.

    His power will come, with maturity, heft and a little bit of a lift in his swing that should come with age, as well. But, for now, will you take a .300 hitter who steals 20 to 30 bases a year, gathers as many doubles if not more, and plays above-average outfield? For a couple of years, anyway?"

    Edit: Chuck Finder not Dejan.

    The prospects are delivering, if Alvarez can live up to the hype as well we will have some exciting young talent for sure. I still hope they keep losing tho, I want a good drafting slot for next year then they can win all they want next year

    Yes apparently that is the plan. **** that Huntington is so smart, now I get the Doumit move. I don't think you have to worry about them winning to many games, maybe at the deadline we can move Cutch to Baltimore to help them out too.

    Tabata streatching that single into a double, then stealing third, was the most exciting sequence this season IMO. It was also great that Walker got the hit to bring him in. I can't help but get excited when these young guys put together a half inning sequence like that.

    I am with you, I actually started tuning out every other inning unless they are due up now. Alvarez will make 4 that will keep me watching them hit.
