Lots of info. Reimold out with injury, J Johnson and M Reynolds out with the flu and Andino leaving team after the game to go to Miami for birth of his 3rd child. Roster move coming, probably an outfielder according to Roch depending on Reimold's availability for tomorrow. So I'm guessing Strop is closing tonight if we have the chance? So look for Flaherty tomorrow at 2B

Lineup

Chavez LF

Hardy SS

Markakis RF

Jones CF

Wieters C

Davis 1B

Betemit DH

Flaherty 3B

Andino 2B

Hunter P

Strop has pretty good stuff. Don't like to see JJ out, but Strop has that kind of arm.

 

Reynolds being out is like an automatic improvement to the lineup.

 

lol...you're going to hear it for that remark....

Bundy and Machado will both end the year as top 5 prospects in baseball. Bundy is the real deal talent wise, question will be can he make adjustments as he rises thru the system, can he avoid serious injury,etc. Usual stuff any great prospect has to face. Numerous scouts say he's the best high school pitcher since D Gooden.

There's a very real chance that they are #1 and #2 next year, with Trout, Moore, Teheran, and Harper almost certainly "graduating"

Never sac bunt in AL unless it's bottom of the 9th in a tie game. I'll say it til I'm blue in the face.

 

There are very few cases where I'd do it. The other night for example, andino was on first with one out and Chavez bunted him over to second. I find this acceptable because a)It's Endy Chavez, and b)it puts Andino in scoring position for Hardy-Markakis-Jones.

 

In most cases though, it's just so stupid.

Law says it's a 10% chance they are the top 2 prospects in ESPN's end of season rankings. And you can close the book on Bundy: 4 IP 0 H 6 K

NEVER sac bunt with 1 out! That's insane. Chavez is a contact slap hitter, I'd hit and run in that situation before I'd bunt.
