Stop the bleeding right now. If they lose today then they need to go burn those City Connect unis and ban them forevermore.

Not wearing the City Connect jerseys today. I like them and actually allowed my lady friend to buy me one yesterday. 😂

Why is McCann DHing unless Hyde somehow thinks he can magically snap out of this half time player slump he’s in.

 I also like to City Connect jerseys and hat - def want to get them.  I guess McCann DH because you know, Hyde L v R and that's all he cares about, and I guess it's either him or McKenna as there is no other RHB to choose from; both are yawnstipating at best.

I'd be in favor of McKenna in RF, Santander at DH, and McCann on the bench.

We need 1 more bat. The love affair with McCann at DH vs lefties is silly. He has a .763 OPS vs lefties, it's not like he's a world beater.

Yeah thats pretty good considering you dont need to use a roster spot on a Jesus Aguilar or someone like that to be an occasional bat against a LH starter.


Now, we could def use an upgrade on OHearn or Vavra. Someone to DH or play OF every day. If thats a lefty hitter its not gonna help you against LH pitching. Maybe you search for someome with consistent splits but .763 is pretty darn solid

So Santander is starting so what's the explanation for not pinch hitting him last night in the 9th?

I just don't understand why he's not catching.  He's there to face the lefties and get Adley out from behind the plate.  Protect his legs and his energy.  

 

McCann has looked good behind the plate.  Let him catch against all lefties.

Bradish out of the inning with a DP and a K after 2-on, none- out.

Yeah. If McCann is going to be in the lineup he should at least be catching. I'd have caught him today since it's another day game tomorrow that you'll likely want Adley catching.

Great defense to get Bradish out of it!

And solid strikeout to finish!

Gunnar has horrible swings vs lefties. He should be a straight platoon

That was a bad AB. He had a good AB against that LH reliever from NY.

Good news is Coloumbe, Baumann, Cano, and Bautista should be plenty rested for today.

This makes no sense to me. If he was not available to pinch hit due to a sore elbow then all of a sudden he can start the next day?
