Expos series

I agree ... dont get so confident here, the expos have been playing really well and showing that at least they are trying ... they gave the cubs a run for their money in chicago, the battled well against the braves and the same thing against the phills

 

 

careful ... lets take it one game at the time

 

also ... can we rest some players for this series

 

maybe lowell, dookie, conine, and castillo ... give some guys some playing time. Mordy looked like me facing randy johnson in his sole PH appearance, I wouldnt want that to happen if he to play a full game or come up later on in a tough situation

Part of the Expos' success had been their ridiculous home record. Since getting past Puerto Rico they went on 10-3 tear at the Big O in Montreal. Although recently they've gone 5-8 at home, and just dropped three straight at Atlanta.

 

Montreal is a team you can't take lightly. They have a good lineup and starters that will go deep in games and mask their less than stellar bullpen.

 

We need to execute and manufacture runs. Lowell's power is down the second half. LoDuca is in his regular second half spiral. We can't wait on the home run. If we're going to win it's up to the entire order to pick up that clutch hit and drive in the runner from second.

If we play like we have lately, we'll be fine. I say 4/5 atleast.....And is Logan pitching the second game of the double header again?

According to a MLB.com article, Bump is the favorite with Ben Howard and David Weathers also being considered.

When Mike Mordecai starts we score an average of 6.4 runs per game. :)

Man, you've got a real hard-on for LoDuca...

 

Anybody know the pitching matchups vs. Montreal? Armas started today and Livan last night for the Expos. Livan threw 143 pitches in 6.1 innings of work. I think his arm might ready to fall off soon.

 

:whistle

I actually like that pen. Cordero, Ayala, Eischen, etc. Got some good quality arms in there.

Yeah, it's a fairly good 'pen but Frank has NO idea how to manage it which reduces it's effectiveness. (well you can say that for every aspect of his managing, as the Livan throwing 140 + pitches example shows)
