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.

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.

Verlander walked Trout but that was it for the Angels in the 1st.

Berkman is the color analyst.  To the chagrin of some around here no doubt.

Peacock got the first 2 outs quickly,  then forgot how to throw a strike and walked 2 before getting a flyball to deep center.

Bottom 3.

A sac fly in the 1st and a rocket from Jake leading off the 3rd have Astros up 2-0.

Leadoff Springer dinger.

Astros got 2 other runners on via BB in the 1st but nada.

Peacock pitching from full windup tonight. Only baserunner reached via E5 throw that pulled Yuli off the bag (upheld on replay ir whatever the phrasing is; he almost got reached back to the bag successfully).

1-0 thru 2.
