We need to find a way to beat Bieber tonight.  A win tonight would give us a better record than Cleveland.

And we would tie them in head to head. We have already hung in there through this 9 game gauntlet with a 5-3 record but a win tonight would be icing on the cake and a good start to the month. I just want to see the offense continue to improve.

33 games to go and they are still right there.   They have to take advantage  of the next homestand.  It would be great to see them make the playoffs, but either way, they are one of this seasons winners.

It’ll be nice to see Gunnar at shortstop.

Looks like Stowers is sliding down a bit.

I mean we can never take Odor out of the lineup right?

It is pretty funny that it feels like Odor is sitting less than anyone else. Maybe other than Santander. Its probably not true though

No, I looked it up.

 

As far as I can tell, in August there was only 1 game where he didn't appear.  There were 4 where he didn't start but came in midway through and finished.  At least he came through with an OPS of a cool .548.

 

I knew Hyde refused to sit him but didn't realize it was that bad.  Our worst player and he somehow continues to play more than almost anyone.  It's amazing.

It’s because Odor taught this group how to have fun and enjoy playing baseball. The home run chain, the binoculars thing after hits, etc, from what I understand, the spirit behind all of that stuff came from Odor. So I get it. But it’s a little frustrating. At a minimum, they could be playing the matchup game a little bit and not bench him out right.

Until now, the only way to sit Odor has been to play Nevin (i.e. the one guy who's even worse than Odor).  Hyde took one look at Vavra at 2B and decided he wasn't an option.  Henderson gives them more possibilities for resting Odor, and Urias and Mateo, too.

I think this is the first time Adley has caught 3 in a row.

Vavra in LF

This seems very narrow minded. I don't know how his defense was there in the minors. 

 

If I recall, Brooks Robinson had a 3 error game very early in his career. He ended up being a pretty, pretty good 3rd baseman.

When you wear number 83 I guess you shouldn't be taken seriously. As opposed to Gunnar.

 

 

Side note: Stowers usage plus claiming Aguilar tells me everything I need to know about the Mancini trade. Fail.
