  1. Aside from Kimbrel’s wild pitch the biggest mistake of this game was pitching to Vladdy 3-0. The manager needs to be aware of the situation and make the call. Should have also been obvious to the pitching coach and catcher, but just awful decision overall that starts at the top.
  2. That 1 is on Kimbrel
  3. Seby’s defense sucks for a guy that is supposedly playing only because of his defense. At least Collins can keep the ball in front of him
  4. Am I only the only 1 that is perplexed by Beckham’s accent? He sounds like he’s from the south/Georgia at times, but there’s also a lot of PA/Philly in there for some reason (ie Mare of Easttown) Yes, this is where my mind goes when watching our offense leave runners on as usual….

    Watching Lynn tonight is like watching Free Solo.

    How many innings would Reylo have in him tonight? Don’t just give this game away

    Has mlb.tv sucked for anyone else lately? I get a “network error” damn near every commercial break

    Sox Acquire Kimbrel; Madrigal, Heuer to Cubs

    This kinda hurts…but also exciting at the same time. Even tho he’s a limited player, Nicky is going to be great at the things he does well. Just a matter of how much value he ends up having and if he ever develops any semblance of power.

    Cesar Hernandez traded to White Sox, Konnor Pilkington to CLE

    Someone probably has, but I don’t feel like looking at 10 pages…has anyone else pointed out his .256 BABIP compared to his career .330? It’s not a sexy move, but it fills a hole and we gave up little to nothing. Hernandez at 2B, Luery back in a bench utility role, and Mendick back in AAA definitely makes a better team….even if it’s not a whole lot.

    The K’s are obviously concerning, but Fabian is very enticing. Could be an above average defensive CF with 20/20 potential…or he never improves his hit tool and doesn’t make it to the bigs. Im no scout, but his swing and bat speed both actually look pretty good. Looks like he needs to cut down his leg kick and work on his balance though (I’m also by no means a scout/expert) Tyler Black has a pretty compact LH swing that I can see producing more power as he gets older…swing reminds me a lot of Chase Utley. 2B being his primary position is not ideal, but just really like watching this kid hit.

    Extremely predictable Mendick would be overmatched but Soto…to everyone buy our manager Thank you Jose

    GT 6/29 Twins @ White Sox

    The amount of middle in 90 mph fastballs and hanging sliders this lineup has missed tonight is insane. Should be 5-2 minimum
