Legit curious re: the throw to second that McCann airmailed to Mullins in CF on that SB in that past inning. The baserunner immediate gets up and collides with Mateo, and heads back to 2nd. The ump points to where Mateo was, and Kevin Brown was saying something about if he had run to third base and been thrown out, the ump would’ve called obstruction on Mateo.

 

Except that Mateo had just landed after leaping to make an attempt at McCann’s throw. Seems to me it’s on the runner to get around Mateo, and not through him. This isn’t 20 feet down the base path.

Quick hook for Kikuchi. Their BP isn't great.

Even if its unitentional you can obstruct. That said, just because you obstruct doesnt mean the runner gets a free base if he tries.

The batting coaches and players need a reset. Too much swing and miss. Not enough walks. Not enough working ABs. We hit the ball hard when we make contact. But we got to find a way to 1. Make more contact and 2. Have better ABs.

Cowser is trash too. Stowers has never hit MLB pitvhing. Hays is hitting what again??

Offense sucks and has for some time.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Facts:

Cowser, as bad as he's been has still been better in May than Mullins.

Hays is RH and hitting better than Mullins.

Won't argue about Stowers but at this point I'd give him a look although I way preferred to give Kjerstad an extended look.

AAA pitching could probably get this line-up out right now.

Ground out, pop up, strike out.

I'm sparing myself the excruciating monotony of watching the game.  How many pitches did those three outs use?  6 or 7?

Everyone trying to hit a 7-run HR rather than just having productive ABs.

Miller, Castillo, Kirby.

Good luck generating many runs against that crew.

When Team T walks 6 times and Team B walks once, Team A will usually win. Even when Team B leads baseball in home runs.

The all or nothing reliant on HR offense is why we've struggled so poorly in the playoffs.
