I almost got banned from MASN comments after I think the 2nd game. I was so ticked at Gary Thorne's excited voice (most here disagree with me in general about this, which I get) when Goldschmidt hit the walk-off homer. Such memories!
I sincerely hope we eke one out against the Yankees and maybe at least one against a Jays team that has clinched the four spot (if it plays out that way) for the winning record. Pathetic I'm looking for wins against teams because they take their foot off the gas!
Almost to the day of Tyler Glasnow's return, Shane Baz had TJ this week, a significant IMO setback for the 2023-24 Rays as entering this year he was one of the few pitching up and comers with scouting reports and dominant performances like Grayson Rodriguez.
There but for the grace of the baseball gods they all go.
I remain uncertain that it is Hyde's decision. Deciding how to distribute playing time is no longer the sole purview of managers, and I would be pretty surprised if Elias didn't have a lot of impact in these decisions.
Nice homerun off a lefty today.
Entering the offseason I feel eight positions are mostly set (2B a competition but will probably be someone from inside the organization), but I could see it either way if at DH we go for an Adult in the Room type like Michael Brantley, or if we mostly turn it over to Stowers (feel free to call this RF rather than DH if you think he outfields Santander).
Should he get a bump to the MLB forum like Gunnar?
