Ubaldo is going to have to get the ball down if he plans on still being in this game in the Sixth.

That's probably it for Ubaldo. Wasn't pretty, but he gave the team a chance to win. Offense needs to score more runs. 4 runs through 14 innings so far this season. 75% of that from Cruz

Can't wait for Manny to get back. Makes the lineup look much better and he probably makes that play Flaherty just botched

IMO the difference between Machado and Flaherty at 3B is above average and plus. That being said Falherty didn't cost us that game.

I'm not so sure Manny will be a great contribution offensively. Obviously, he'll provide tremendous value on defense, but I think we should remember;

1. he's still only 21 years old
2. he hit .240/.277/.370/.647 in the second half last year
3. he never hit particularly well in the minors
4. he's coming off of major knee surgery
