Time (for me at least) to turn the page and get focused on the task at hand.

Any thoughts on roster adjustments with 2 or 3 games in the NL park?   If Pressly can't go who replaces him?

A couple of 1 out singles by the Royals in the 2nd but Greinke gets a K and a 4-3 grounder.

The KC bench coach, Swaim, was ejected in the first (night have been top 2) for arguing balls/strikes.

Urquidy puts them down in order in the first.

We can build on this.

This article sums up the remaining schedules of all the division and wc contenders.

First glance at NY's remaining schedule my thought was "crap, a lot of losing teams await them."

Then I looked at Minn's and the Astros' remaining schedule.  "Oh yeah. The AL is full of shitty teams."

NY just starting against Texas (rain delay).
Looks like Oakland is off.

Talk Zone / Reddick
« on: August 10, 2019, 08:58:01 am »
Discussion in GZ last night shifted to Reddick.

First,  my bias: I love Josh Reddick.   I wish every player could enjoy their time in MLB as much as Josh seems to have enjoyed his.  He has fun but he's not a flake.  He's intense but not a dick.  He's smart and plays a mean right field.

I also think he should be the right fielder for this team until the last out is recorded.

He's struggling at the plate:

.289 BA in the first half with 10 homers.  .200 in the second half with zero dingers.

Nagging injury?  Mechanical flaw?  Changing book?

Don't know,  I only want it better. Because there's no way I would trust that corner OF spot to anyone else in the organization *this* season.

4th

Seattle gets an infield single off the bag at 3rd foot the game's first hit.   Nothing comes off it.


Bregman leads off with a single off the scoreboard for the Astros first hit.

GZ got locked out somehow.

Devo pitched 2 innings to lock it down.

Good series win after the late loss Friday.

It's official.   Tony Kemp had been designated for assignment.

Tip of the cap to him and a hearty thanks.  Always nice when your favorite team happens to have quality human beings like Tony Kemp.

We miss you already.
