Well, the Buccos are off to a dull 6-9 start, with very little exciting news.
Their vaunted young pitching staff has been underwhelming, with nominal ace Kris Benson sitting at 0-2 6.89.
Team ERA and team BA are in the middle of the pack in the NL, but they're second to last in runs scored.
A few of the comparatively bright spots.
- RF Brian Giles has 4 HR/15 RBIs
- Newly acquired John Vander Wal is hitting .368, largely in a pinch-hitting role
- C Jason Kendall is all the way back from his horrific ankle break of last year, hitting .352 with 4 SB
THis weekend they head to Atlanta, so I'm not optimistic about a rapid change of fortune.
The new stadium remains on schedule (actually slightly ahead of schedule).
