David Price is no push over, but I like our chances today.

Two runs in the top of the first against David Price is a nice start. Bad news is he's going to settle right in and cruise.

OK Hammel, let's pray he's sharp.

A few good at-bats, a HR from Wieters, and 2 runs off of David Price. Couldn’t ask for a much better start to the season.

Reimold should not have been picked off.

Roberts didn't have a bad at at bat. He at least fought off a couple pitches.

1-2-3 Inning for Jason Hammel. Pitch count looks good. Good Job!

Beautiful at bat from Matt Weiters! 13 pitches, its a walk and the bases are loaded!

Double play gets Price out of a real jam. But still his pitch count (60+?) is up. He's had guys on base each inning and is really having to work to get through it.

Price is the kind of pitcher that you want to take advantage of as many opportunities as you can.

Roberts would have been safe had this been a few years ago.

I think our ENTIRE pitching staff owes Ben Zobrist money. He hits us like he knows what's coming.

Now, that missed bases loaded opportunity looks a LOT bigger.

48 pitches after 4 innings from Hammel. Surrendered 1 solo HR. Pretty solid start.

After 5, Price is at 100 pitches. Do we see the bullpen or do they give him a leash?
