  1. Pathetic. The defense the last week or so has been a sloppy as I have seen in a long time.
  2. I have a feeling we are going to get a couple runs and get back into this game. I can feel it coming...
  3. Yeah, here is the full interview. Worth 4 minutes of your time...
  4. Yeah, and that is one thing you don't want to see from a building team. Lack of talent is one thing, but the number of stupid errors lately has been off the charts. At some point you have to start looking at the coaching staff.
  5. I'd like to think that when Means comes off the IL we will finally jettison Harvey. It gets harder and harder to justify him over Akin, Zimmerman, or Kremer.

    Tyler Glasnow on the IL with a partially torn UCL.
  7. Frees up a catch sport on the Norfolk roster. Hmmmm....
  8. Is Means a "sell high" player? -- He's on the IL -- MLB has just announced a crackdown on grip substances and he is a prime suspect of being someone who has used them to enhance his performance. I would think that most teams wouldn't give up much for him until he is off the IL **and** shows that he is still capable of being a dominant pitcher now that we are in this crackdown phase on sticky stuff. I don't think many teams will give up significant value for him until they are convinced that he will still be a good pitcher in this potentially new environment.

  10. At least we didn't get immaculated in the 9th.
  11. Oh yeah, the wild pitch too... was that another one that was at least partially Severino's fault? Sounds like an awful defensive game. Kremer deserved better.
  12. 400 mile drive home, just beat the storm by about 30 seconds. First drops fell as I was walking up to my front door, it came down hard right after I shut the door behind me. So I listened to most on the radio. Got home in time to see Wilkerson's drop when he should have let Santander take it. How bad was Stewart's slip in the first inning? How bad was the call that got Hyde ejected? Did the batter swing, which means it wouldn't matter if it hit him, right? Arnold and Newman completely missed that point on the radio while it was happening, they thought the entire issue wa

  14. Valaika was shifted somewhat so he was almost behind 2nd and Freddy was over towards 3rd. Ball was hit to where the shortstop normally would be. Valaika ranged to his right. Freddy ranged to his left. Valaika made the play, on the SS side of the base, looking like a SS going into the hole. Meanwhile Freddy just kept going and practically slid into 2nd to get Valaika's throw to beat the runner from first for the force. So it's scored 4-6 but Valaika made the backhand play where the SS normally stands and threw to Freddy at 2nd after they had crossed paths. I'd never seen that b
  15. It's sort of still spring training for him. Hopefully he can pitch every few days and get into a bit of a rhythm soon.
  16. Maybe after a few years fans around the ALE will be giving their grudging respect to Mullins and Hays for all the plays they make against them. The way we do/did with Kiermaier, Pillar, and Jackie Bradley.
  17. And I think our primary alignment has RM/TM sharing 1B/DH most of the time. But Santander has been visibly gimpy with the ankle all week and Hyde wanted to get him a day off from RF on the turf today and still wanted his bat in the lineup over DJ vs the lefty, so he put Santander at DH.
  18. I've heard good things about Maverick Handley's defense. I'd say Wynns is the best defensive C we have had in the majors in the last couple years.
  19. It's 6-4 Tampa if Sevvy is catching. That second pitch from Scott would have gotten past him.
  20. Stop it. I'm already hungry. U we Eats driver "Hem" is 11 minutes away with my spicy salmon and tuna poke and sushi, and my stomach is starting to make noises.
