What is with the guy's bald head on ESPN? (the Braves-Cards game)
Are those freckles or scabs?

Inspired by RW generous overall number 3 ranking, Hanley starts of the first week of May with a hit. Boom.

WTF was that home run by Rendon? He literally hit it with one hand, totally fooled, way outin front. And it randomly just goes out of the park? Really one of the weirdest homers I have seen this year.

Greinke getting smoked and potentially looking at a rain delay at some point. Not good. Homer ball still plagues him.

Hard to tell if he is or isn't. Most of his pitches aren't getting past home plate. :D

Any chance they wash thing Greinke first inning away? I remember a couple years ago when Gio got lit up in Texas for like 8 earned in the first 3 innings and then the game got rained out, lol.

Watching Rasmus score from first, you can see why he can't steal bases lol. Not a natural looking runner.

I'm more worried about Hanley working him over right now.

Whew, got him to double up.
