Just Mike Minor being Mike Minor. It's the Cubs ya damn scrub!

It's really not his fault. He's throwing 92 mph fastballs right down the middle of the plate. It's not like you expect MLB hitters to be able to handle those.

Also: what has gotten into Wong? Another bomb. Lol

Wouldn't be surprised if the Braves move Gattis back to LF, move Jup over to RF, Heyward over to CF after the all-star break. Bethancourt looks really good.

I liked watching him mad dog Kelly yesterday for a half hour for accidentally hitting him, but Kelly was ignoring him and it was driving Gomez nuts so he just. kept. staring. Lol

- Shin-Soo Choo walked

- Elvis Andrus safe at first on pitcher Jered Weaver's throwing error, Shin-Soo Choo to second

Nice start to the game for Weaver... :unsure:

Strasburg and Hamels have a hell of a hurdle to deal with in Philly today - Andy Fletcher's strike zone is about the size of a soup can right now.

Uh oh - Strasburg is starting to break out is impending melt down mannerisms - shaking the arm, taking 5 minutes in between pitches, stink eyeing the ump, cursing walking off the field. He's super frustrated with the umpire, and isn't getting borderline calls - but isn't helping his case.

Almost 60 pitches through 3IP - dude is just a different beast away from Nats Park - two completely different pitchers.

Strasburg with a 11 pitch 3K 4th inning to shut me up displaying the nastiest of his nasty.

Him and Felix's 88-90mph change ups are simply ridiculous, he threw a few in the 4th that were as good as any pitch can possibly be.

The dreaded 5.2IP outing by Strasburg for those of us in QS leagues - the 6th the maddening.

Got 2 strikes on Rollins, who hits a 40 hopper off diving LaRoches glove when Rendon was in position to make the play behind him. Gets two strikes on Utley who serves a line drive into right. Gets Howard to hit a lazy fly ball to left. Strasburg completely snoozes on Rollins and Utley and they do a double steal during the Byrd AB - Byrd proceeds to hit a worm burner in between 3rd and SS to score Rollins and Utley. Strasburg then K's Asche. Then freakin BB's Rupp, and gets pulled, got absolutely JOBBED by Andy Fletcher on a CB during that AB.

This game gave us the beautiful and the ugly of good ol Stephen. Just couldn't throw the freakin gauntlet down in the 6th, sigh.

Final line 5.2IP, 7H, 2R, 2BB, 9K
