  1. Ricky: "Frank, I need you to improve our bunting" Frank: "OK guys, when you get the bunt sign, just don't"
  2. Hitting coaches rarely move the needle for me, but I like this move. I am hoping Matt Zaleski makes it to Chicago sooner rather than later as well.

    NLDS- Nationals/Dodgers

    I'm torn - I want the Rays to beat the Astros.... but I'd rather the Stros make it to the World Series than the damn Yanks, and I am not convinced the Rays could pull off back to back upsets

    Shame that game was on the road - the roar on winning the series on that incredible catch would have been something else.

    All ya'll may not agree with Stone coming to JRs defense here, but you can't deny it was a sick burn yo.

    Hey. Hey, guys. Guess what. I think DET might be bad at baseball.

    Narrarator: It wasn't.

    The real question is whether a 2 run lead is enough considering the pitchers left in our bullpen right now.

    If they want to give our fastest player a free base, they're dumb in addition to being cowards and, thanks to Sergio Romo, hypocrites.
  11. Sure, sometimes it works like that. Sometimes it works like Brad Ausmus, who is doing the exact same things in LA he did in Detroit. Sometimes it even works like Dusty Baker, who seemed to get worse every time he was hired. I'm not saying managerial experience is a bad thing, but even being a winning manager before doesn't seem to guarantee success, and having performed poorly as a manager before really shouldn't make you a more attractive candidate unless you can explain all the things you are ready to change in an interview.
  12. Omar at least has minor league experience. That isn't an uncommon path to the majors, it isn't fair to compare him to someone like Ventura in this case. Also, if a person has major league managerial experience and is available, that almost certainly means they failed in that experience.

    Game Thread - 09/12/19 - Royals @ Sox - Gio Day

    Agreed. It could mean he needs another world series now, it could mean he wants to maximize the valuation of the franchise, it could mean literally nothing.

    3 batter minimum next year, so Fry better be able to start doing this regularly.
