Another tough LHP. Another day for our guys to find a way to grind it out.

How want sub 2 ERA guys have we face already? Seems like more than a handful.

They seem to find a way to scratch out wins against these tough LH starters, but also find a way to produce next to nothing against the guys you think they’d be able to score a lot on….case in point, Luis Gil and Ross Stripling the previous week.

Gil has very good to elite "stuff" but command has been his achilles heal. I won't knock them for having a tough game against him.

Makes you realize just how many hitters are overmatched in the game today.  Look at the box scores.  Tons of guys below the Mendoza line.  Every team, no matter how bad they are, have pitchers who can dominate.  It's just a question on who's lineup is more pathetic than the other.

Until the almost-inevitable UCL tear.

I would rather have taken a look at O'Hearn against a lefty than Santander who has just been putrid. Or even leave Mullins in there and have McKenna in right. Better overall outfield defense.

Santander has a .905 OPS VS LHP this year compared to .553 VS RHP.

Today would be the day to play Tony.

I get that. But in his last 7 games he is 2 for 22 with 1 BB, 1 RBI, and 5 Ks. I guess he won't break out if he sitting on the bench but dang he's been painful to watch.

Tony has a history of being extremely hot or extremely cold. Have to think he'll break through eventually- and when he's hot his bat can almost carry a team on its own. He and Mullins worry me, though. Both have been struggling horribly for weeks now.

Some of the pitches Mullins and Santander swing at are almost comical. You could probably roll the ball up to the plate and they'd swing. They definitely don't do themselves any favors.

That interview with the PC French before the game was great. He’s a big SABR guy and coaches to it throughout his process. High energy guy.

Why doesn't Hyde tell them to throw more strikes.

Kremer’s throwing hand seems to be bothering him a bit. Did anyone catch that after the k of Elly there?

3 should be plenty for Mean Dean Kremer!

I've noticed him shaking out his pitching hand a few times the past couple of starts.

He did grimace a bit.

Now that you mention it.

Kremer has retired the first six batters he's faced today.
