Blackout Friday

July 31

Recommended Posts

Whoever won the 29th can restart this. 
 

interesting the royals are starting a top prospect kris bubic.  He is a nice arm, but shouldn’t have any business facing mlb hitters.

So no one should be shocked when he pitches 7 innings striking out 9

Finally get maybe some mojo going and we get an off day.  I think it's at a good time tho, let the guys enjoy the day in KC (hopefully not too socially) and come out firing tmr.  A sweep in KC and all is forgotten from the first week.  2/3 would be fine but anything less would be a disaster.  This is a bad, no good, awful Royals club.

My very worthless prediction is he mow’s us down first time through, and we light him up 4th inning.

Madrigal time?

He's in Schaumburg and Getz said today that he's "close" whatever the fuck that means. So we may not see him in the KC series.

Maybe they're waiting for the next home series. Would make sense if he has to travel separately to KC for covid exposure reasons. Expecting both he and Mazara for Milwaukee.

Yup, I thought they were home first. I think he joins them for the series in Milwaukee.

It means only a couple days left until they have service time leverage talks

Mazara should be fine to travel to KC since he’s recovered & currently immune (who knows for how long though).

Then why even make it in the first place? 🙄

I don't think he's going to be ready until the Milwaukee series. He just got to Schaumburg Tuesday.

I love that somebody would create all that just for fun.  I would have done this type of stuff for sure back in the 90s no doubt.  But all we had was trolling AOL chat rooms.

They're trying to foreclose a service time grievance by saying "if it was really about service time, he would have been up at the first opportunity, especially since we were 2-4 at the time." Basically they have to wait a decent interval after the moment they get the additional year so as to have some cover.

I assume same is true for Dunning so we will have to wait another series for him too.

That’ll be 3 days worth of activities. Plus he was taking part in summer camp scrimmages before his absence. I think he’ll be fine.

Madrigal is still in Schaumburg because the season will be cancelled or paused soon and this way the Sox can hold him out for the first month of 2021 and get another year of control!

I fully understand the White Sox holding him out 5 games for the year of control, but why must Getz play the "he's close" game. If Kris Bryant didn't win a grievance, Nick Madrigal has no shot. It isn't like what he is doing in Schaumburg is going to make him more MLB ready. It's really to keep as much rust off as possible.
