The game is scheduled for 1:10. Maybe they get a window to play?  Looks like they can start on time a play a couple hours.

Watching a more detailed forecast, and I'm less optimistic of them playing today. There should be a lot of dry hours on Sunday. We shall see.

Really wish they'd sit Abreu down for a game or 2 and see how he feels after, he's not doing anyone any favors playing through pain, he's certainly not helping the team.

The lack of willingness to shake things up is starting to piss me off. Why is Yermin playing today but sitting yesterday against a lefty? Why is Gonzalez on this roster? Why was Collins playing yesterday against a lefty. So dumb. This team is sinking and needs help fast.

Mercedes in against a righty.  Just for perspective, he’s put up a -7 wRC+ against RHP in 38 plate appearances this month.  I have no idea what the organization’s plan is with Yermin at this point other than close their eyes and hope he magically discovers his April production.

It’s out of control stupid and goes beyond just Tony at this point.

Because Carlos Rodon gets to choose his own catcher apparently, and has chosen against the teams $80 million catcher.

Yup. Really weird decisions being made. Definitely need a shake up and every day without one has us questioning WTF is going on.

Collins also catches Giolito's starts. I understand I hold a minority opinion, but this is one of the few things the team is doing I understand and support.

The starting pitching is the only thing keeping this team afloat. It also appears the other three starters are comfortable throwing to Grandal. The platoon advantage for a single spot in the lineup is not as important as the team's starter.

I agree Grandal's health and hitting has improved, and he should play 1B or DH more games, like he did under Ricky last season. For load management, 95-100 games caught plus additional 1B or DH work is reasonable for a catcher in his 30s to keep him fresh and healthy.

They should be sitting Abreu, Anderson and Moncada 2-3 games a month for regular rest, but they currently only sit when injured, which becomes more likely if they do not get regular rest days.

Rodon picks Collins -> Grandal shifts to DH -> Mercedes SOL

Except in his career, Grandal has struggled ( under .200) with the bat when playing IB and DH and also as a PH.

Sick of these sh**y day games for network needs. Saturday nite games are the essence of S*x baseball. Even with their ****** lineups.

Why are you looking at BA for Grandal? He would need to go on a major hot streak to hit ,200 this season.

I agree....it seems obvious.

I’m not asking for much… Both burger and sheets are on the 40 man and have earned a shot. I’m not opposed to giving Beckham a shot either. Gonzalez is an easy option, and at this point, I think a couple weeks about bats in AAA for Yermin makes too much sense. Really don’t understand the reluctance to try some other things.

I’m guessing that Yermin plays when one of the two catchers is off at DH now? Surely Grandal/Collins each need some days off. 

My other theory is that TLR may be setting him up for failure.

Not on track to hit the ballpark but there is an active Tornado Warning in Will County.

New tornado warning issued for Cook County that includes GRF. If you're there, get to shelter. If you're headed there, get inside somewhere quick.

I gave you an example. His  OBP, SLG ,OPS  are all lower when he is not catching.

Does TLR decide the lineup or the stat geeks?
