Ultimately we all like Kemp because his contributions come from the 9 spot.

If we needed him elsewhere in the lineup,  and for extended time,  he'd likely struggle to be consistent. 

He can play multiple position but he's probably not an everyday starter at any of them.

Love the guy,  but he's not gonna bring back a top prospect if dealt.

Nice W.

McTaggart pointed out CWS never got a runner to 3rd.

Brantley doubles into the nook in left.

He briefly considers smiling then thinks better of it.

Pressly is unreal.

I hope he eats with his left hand.

Because that right one dispenses pure filth.

What did they say?  I was outside watching through the window.

"Snapped the streak,  snapped the bat."

TK asked did he expect to go 9 for 9 against lefties?

Then they cut to the dugout and Josh was smiling too.  Apparently he heard from his teammates.

Nice!

Did you see Reddick break the bat afterwards?

That cracked TK and Blum up.

Funny moment.

Pitched around a hit batsman and that IF single.

9 Ks, 90 pitches thru 5 for Brad.

Great stop by Kemp.   

Good speed from the runner beat the throw,  but Anderson had to stop at 2nd.

Jake got the edge of the zone dotted 3 times after that 3-0 count.

Sigh.

Consecutive hits from Josh (hitting in the leadoff spot tonight) and Bregman followed by a gidp by Brantley,  a walk by Correa, and a foul pop by Yuli.

Bottom 3.

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

Here are Springer's comments after coming out of Sunday's game:

https://twitter.com/brianmctaggart/status/1130223366911213569?s=19

Synopsis:
-been going on for an amount of time that he's not going to share
-got a little tighter
-coming out was about 'being smart'
-no tests planned that as far as he knows
-wouldn't say yay or nay for Monday's game (I'd say nay, but so far AJ has not requested my input on anything)

Here's to quick healing.

I would have been tempted to squeeze with Jake at that point.

Me too. 

Yuli was the runner and the was a force at home so higher risk.

Astros got a couple of breaks the last few games that had big impacts.  I'm not sweating that one.

It looked like he was out.

The nut shot was the brief relief when he was called safe being replaced by the gidp.

There's the familiar replay kick to the junk.

I am skeptical that Valdez's tightrope act will work against Boston, but I guess we'll see.

If he ever throws strikes consistently,  look out.

But I guess that's the story with a lot of young pitchers.
