The Bucs are about to head into a 9 game home stand.

Will the fans come out?

Will the team come out of those games on August 5th in playoff position?

Didn’t exactly give Jamison the best lineup to generate run support today.

Not much you can do.  Diaz needed a day off, Dickerson's hurt, Marte got hurt second pitch of the game. It is what it is. 

Plus, Baurer is a really good pitcher .

I didn’t see that Marte was injured. On a different note, on a day when you’re not generating much offense, why would Luplow (batting below .200) not be bunting with men on 1st and 2nd and no outs in the 8th inning of a 2 run game? You put the tying run in scoring position with two chances to knock him in. This is what frustrates me about Hurdle.

I knew my presence in the ballpark would probably do harm to the winning streak. I also think Bauer had a lot to with it and as stated earlier the lineup wasn't the strongest. That happens. I agree with a lot of what Coach says about the team. They are fun to watch and they are hanging in contention. I wouldn't blow up the team unless they have a better shot at winning it all. I think if the young guys continue to grow, I think we could compete in the next couple of years. Especially if the pitching continues to mature.
