I know it's only June, but this is a big homestand if you ask me. How do you think the Birds will do?

I'm happy playing the Halos since they seem to be a team in total disarray.

However, the Sox will be tough. We'll need our offense to show up every game and no bad starts from Gausman and Garcia in the series. If we don't get one of those putrid starting performances, I could see us taking three of four.

I'm not liking this Garcia vs Weaver matchup too much. Then again I don't like Garcia matched up with anyone.

Was just looking at that too. I'm not sure if the fact the Garcia pitched so well against them in his first start with us is a good thing or a bad thing. On the flip side they pitch Vargas in game two and he shut us down back in Anaheim. Jerome Williams pitches in game three, we hit him around a bit last time around but overall his era is under three, so I guess he's doing something right.

Overall though, I'm hopeful against the Angels and excited about the Red Sox. When it comes to the Red Sox (or any of our AL East rivals), throw the pitching match-ups out the window, every game is going to be tough. I'm excited because it is a chance to start making up some ground.

While we get Anaheim the Red Sox and Tampa will be fighting it out and the Yankees (off on Monday) will start a series with the red hot A's on Tuesday.

Who can figure this team out. Every team has its ups and downs: the bats were silent in Tampa Bay until yesterday. The starters were bad except for yesterday. The Angels are average and the Redsox have been playing above their heads. Os win 5 lose 2. A great week ahead. With Roberts in the dugout again.

    • Back when we signed Odor, my eyes rolled, probably a medically unsafe distance back into my skull. It took awhile, but he grew on me. Gritty, red-assing, bluster and pimping beyond his skill set, but he grudgingly grew on me. When he was flailing at the plate, and we started to show signs of life, I gnashed teeth, clutched pearls, and silently questioned Hyde's manhood. Recently, I realized Odor is not going to be here beyond this year, and decided to simply appreciate his contributions towards, lets face it, what was looking to be another very shit*y, tank-worthy team. I believe I'll eventually look upon him fondly, in what has been an amazing season, no matter how it turns out. So, a hat tip to you, Mr. Rougned Odor, for your contribution, and also, for snapping Joey Bats head back like a human pez dispenser. That was awesome.  
    • I've been very pleasantly surprised by Mountcastle's speed, and more recently, AR, even Vavra, and blown away by Gunnar..... So, yes, I am also surprised and a bit perplexed by Stowers foot speed (or perceived lack there of). Weirdly, it looks like Stowers is tentative, or something mental more than physical ability to move quickly. But just my impression, nothing to back it up.
    • He is also slower than he looks like he should be which is kind of the opposite of what I normally feel about guys that come up.  Mountcastle, Adley, and Gunnar all struck me as faster than I expected, e.g.
    • Agreed, just from a purely logistics perspective it wouldn't surprise me if both he and Gillaspie are optioned after tonight's game, and someone like Sulser and Vespi are brought up. 
    • He also really looked bad missing that tag at second tonight.   Sometimes it seems his head is not in the game. 
    • I don't see that changing either.  I think he is what he is at the plate.  He could still bring a lot of value in a reserve role. 
    • He can only come back up to replace an injured player. But he would qualify for post season play...
