It was a mistake not to have someone warming and to leave him in here IMO. Too risky, even if it works out.

Maybe but they have not hit a ball hard.

Yup.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Oof on that throw from Vavra, too. Do better.

I'll still take him over Odor, though.

Vavra is not good on the pivot.

Vavra may not be that great turning two.

Not sure it justifies finding ABs for 0dor but it will have its impact.

Don't think that turn shows us anything about Vavra. He was purposefully not rushing on it, which was smart because he had all day. He just made a terrible throw even when taking his time.

Vavra kind of showing he is a AAAA guy. I mean its tough to call that so early. He certainly knows how to work an AB but it doesnt matter if hes not going to hit the ball hard enough. Defense is obviously suspect

Vavra through the ball away on the throw around one inning. His arm is very suspect.
Odor probably makes that play.

Doesn't making a terrible throw even when taking his time tell us something?

I mean if we're judging by just that inning, Mountcastle was the worst defender imo. Point is, it's a super small sample which may or may not be indicative of how good one's defense is.

That was one of the ugliest at bats of the night. Where is Westburg?

Elias has to figure some stuff out on offense this offseason.

I'm pretty close. His arm is suspect on every throw.

True. It felt like one jam too many, and with a lead, I would have managed it differently, but he did well to only give up the 1 there. I just have no confidence in the bats right now.

I guess Hyde has seen enough of Vavra tonight too.

Right. Its not just the throws by itself its that Hyde was hesitant to play him in the field for a long time.
