Lol at starting McCann and keeping Hicks on the bench.

I’m annoyed even following on my phone

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

"Now OPS sucks.  Got it."

"Making his own olive brine is peak Mackus."

Eh. 5 more ABs to go. Embarrassing performance so far, though.

Is he supposed to start Adley every game the rest of the year

Frustrating.

 

Means' velocity seems pretty encouraging, interested in seeing what it ends up averaging out to and how to holds in the 5th and possibly 6th.

Blaming Hyde for starting McCann is an odd criticism — unless you want to wait until a lefty goes.

Slide is that you?

Have we not watched this team all year to be ruling them out of a three run game in the 5th inning?

Agreed. Feel like I’ve seen everything I’ve wanted to see from him tonight, all things considered. Only an 8% swinging strike %, but a ton of foul balls. In fact, foul balls account for the highest number of his strikes thrown today. So stuff not quite as crisp, which is to be expected at this juncture IMO. But veteranosity and pitching IQ on display from jump street.


Velocity is there, should only get sharper with each start.

Need to get 4 runs before Wainwright records a 2nd out to push him to his season ERA.  Let's get it done and move past this annoyance.

Better than I was expecting, agreed. His stat cast data won’t look great, but again, first couple times through a big league lineup in over a year. To be expected. And he’s always given up dongs.

Opponents 1000+ OPS against Wainwright the third time through this year.  Though he's even worse the 2nd time through and we botched that.

You guys whining and bitching need to STOP!  Best record in the AL....yep, losing sucks, but this game ain't lost.  Means has looked solid and I almost forget he had surgery to start!  It's only going to get better.  

 

Wainright will fold like a "steel chair" in WWE!  It's coming....relax, you bitches!  ;-)

At least Means is throwing a lot of strikes and he hasn't walked the No. 9 hitter.
