Things I'd like to see from Wade today:

  • More swinging strikes (4.8% isn't cutting it)
  • Limit the walks, get ahead in counts
  • More effective curveball (he's throwing it less this season and it has a -1.71pitch value so far)
  • Continue to get ground balls (54.8% so far this season)

Things I'd like to see from the offense:

  • Patience! Sheets has walked over 5 per 9 innings this year, so don't help him out.

(Is this above section superfluous? I may or may not keep doing it.)

Line-up:

  1. Bartlett ss
  2. Crawford lf
  3. Zobrist rf
  4. Longoria 3b
  5. Pena 1b
  6. Upton cf
  7. Burrell dh
  8. Jaso c
  9. Brignac 2b
