A nice, clean game all around. Man, I’ve missed those.

A 94 pitch complete game. Good on you, Lyles. That was great.

Its going to be interesting to see how they manage all these team controlled position players this offseason. For example, you dont want to just hand the 2b job to Vavra but you dont want to lose him or have him proving himself in AAA again either. You dont want to necessarily hand hand Hays a starting job but you dont want to non tender him either. You want Stowers to earn a job but it doesnt do much good having him crush in AAA again. Urias what do you do?? Mateo what do you do??

Magic number is 5

That has been my goal since things turned.  82 is an important number.

Ben and Jim together are good.   I think they forgot about the game, but they are good,

 

I liked when Brown was trying to explain baseball gambling odds to Ben and Jim and kind of laughing that they didn't understand how it works, and then Palmer said "I've got Pete Rose on speed dial, I'll ask him about it." 

 

Draft Kings probably wasn't thrilled, but I thought it was great.

Such a treat.  They even made the first two games watchable.

 

When I'm King, these guys will be doing every game together.  Brown can come or go, I think he's terrific but he doesn't need to speak much when Jim & Ben are in the booth. And, to his credit and showing why he's excellent, he didn't talk all that much.

Yea, I think Brown realized Jim and Ben were the "gold standard" and stayed out of the way.  He even acknowledged a few times.  The three of them together, are good enough to make me enjoy 3 person announcing teams, which generally is one too many.
