As bad as Givens looked those 4 or 5 outings, he looks great again at the moment.  It is rather hard to believe the difference between good Givens and bad Givens.

Nice win.  This team is getting better, but they need to get a lot better to really compete.  I do see good signs with the pitching staff which is nice.

Remember we're playing the blow Jays.

They may just be worse than us, until Vlad Jr. gets fully acclimated.

Yeah but he was pitching well tonight. I think he was overworked by Hyde.

True, but they looked competitive on the road trip against pretty good teams.  I honestly expected Houston to outscore us 30-7 in that series.  They are missing some big names though so maybe that is really why it was competitive.

We’ve been playing pretty well the last 3 weeks, though our record doesn’t show it.

There position players have negative WAR.  Their bullpen is better than ours but the rest of their team kind of stinks.  Amazing how many terrible teams there are this year.  It will be a battle to get the #1 overall pick.

Tomorrow's pitching matchup is a doozy. Edwin Jackson (11.90 ERA) vs. David Hess (7.08 ERA, most HR given up in MLB). A positive for the Os is that David Hess no hit the Jays in his last start against him.

It's going to be a long season, but it feels good to get the win. 

Was this their 21st win?

    • Lets look at both Santander and Nunez offensively at 26 years old Season WOBA WOBACON Barrel % Hard Hit % Exit Velo XBA XSLG XWOBA XWOBACON Renato Nunez .341 .453 12.1 36.4 86.3 .228 .433 .301 .388 Anthony Santander .358 .404 10.2 36.7 88.6 .286 .510 .338 .378 MLB AVG .317 .370 6.4 34.9 88.3 .250 .414 .321 .376 They are not significantly different though Santander is ahead in the most important OBA and especially XWOBA categories.  The key here is defensively value and cost. Santander is a switch hitting plus defensive RFer while Nunez is a DH. If Nunez played any position effectively, he'd be offered arbitration. Santander's issues have been staying healthy and he doesn't walk much, but then again, he doesn't strike out all that much either. Overall, Santander is a more valuable player than Nunez and this is coming from a guy who think Nunez is worth more than obviously the rest of baseball does.
    • Late to this thread but here's mine. Santander I don't expect any more than he gave us this year before he got hurt. But that's ok. A whole healthy year, that's a solid MLer. Hays... health is the biggest question. Total wrench in the gears. In a full year I would expect BIG things from him. He's not going to hit 30 HRs, but he might hit 30+ doubles and steal 30 bases. Play a stellar CF. I like Austin a lot! For a CFer he's what you want, a take charge guy. If there's a Bermuda Triangle pop up, and he can get to it, he will scream out and call everyone off. I noticed that from his first few games up. Not intimidated when he hit the bigs.
    • The original recording has a girl speaking Spanish in the background in a sexy voice. Like 40% the volume of Burdon. At one point she says in English "Are you listening to this?" Right after 3 minutes in. This 45... on the MGM label!  
    • YouTube came up with another of my favorites. That I have history with. 40 years ago my sisters and my cousins would listen to this 45 record endlessly! I was blown away by this song at 11 or 12 years old. Then 20ish years ago I found this live video online and was blown away a second time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3i0DMbCKnAg click it
    • I don't know how other folks classify this... avant garde? To me this is Punk. Like Devo. An influence on Devo!  
    • Then what makes you think another team would give us value for him?
