    Have to comment on Neimann's performance last night. It was a real meltdown that the box score doesn't quite reflect. First he walked a guy. Then got an easy comebacker he promptly threw into the dirt in front of the second baseman. Men on first and second. Then he walks another guy (bases loaded). Grounder to 2nd, one out. Run scores. Men on 1st and 3rd. Man on 1st steals second (off Niemann, catcher didn't have a chance). Niemann issues 3rd walk (bases full again). Sac fly, 2 runs score. So, basically 3 walks, throwing error, and stolen base in one inning. This after a really terrific game on the 2nd of July. Doesn't look like he's ready for prime time.
