I kid, of course. There's no possible way that we can judge where we are in that nasty nasty 2nd half dip (via RMN) that we've been ripping on Clint about, but if the last two games have been any indication, I might jump to the conclusion that it might not be as bad this season as that curve would suggest.
Last two games: 6-9, 2 R, 5 RBI, 1 HR
And after a breakout game on Wednesday, who's in the 2 hole? Our boy Barmes. What does he do? Bats in Dex.
Yes yes, he was up against a "glorified AAA team". I don't care. The fact that Tracy had the faith to return Barmes to the 2 hole shows to me that Clint proved it to Tracy.
And I trust Tracy. 8)
Do we have offense at 2nd to look forward to?
Nope. Helton and Tulo will slowly glide towards 2nd cause of all the sucking (1 vote)
