Kinsler Thriving in the 6th Hole

Batting 6th in the order, Ian Kinsler was 1-4 with 1 BB, 1 HR (his 26th), 3 RBIs, and 1 run scored against the Twins. Coming off the DL, Kinsler is 6 for 13 with 4 BBs, 2 HBP, 1 double, 3 HRs, 6 RBIs, 5 runs scored, and 1 SB.

In his 1st game back after serving his 5-game suspension, Kevin Youkilis was 1-4 with 1 BB, 1 double (his 28th), and 1 run scored against the Blue Jays.

Ryan Braun was 1-4 with 1 double (his 27th) and 1 run scored against the Pirates.

Josh Whitesell was 0-3 against the Phillies.

Sam Fuld was 0-1 against the Padres.

Scott Feldman got a no-decision against the Twins. He pitched 5 2/3 innings and gave up 5 runs on 9 hits, 1 BB, and 4 Ks. His ERA is 4.06. His WHIP is 1.27. Not his best effort. However, he continues to miss bats (21 Ks in his last 24 2/3 innings).

Watched a little of the Rangers' game and Feldman threw too many flat breaking balls. He should have stuck with spotting his fastball in the tight siutations. All the big hits the other team got off him were on breaking balls.

Kinsler is starting to heat up pretty good.

Keep thinking about what you said about some guy blaming the Red Sox situation on Youkilis's suspension. How stupid is that? Their problems started long before that.
