I just turned it on to watch the top of the first only to see they are done already?

 

Can I guess -- three up three down?

People who applaud a bunt there don't know a lot about what they are watching.

How surprising.

 

Gausmann isn't good.

Why schoop at 2B against the righty?

How is this team going to score if it makes the playoffs?

This could be a 3 or 4 hit shut-out again.

Flaherty blows against both righties and lefties.

 

Schoop avg. against righties better than Flaherty against them.

Flaherty reminds me of Andino.

 

He seems to think he's a much better hitter than he is.

I'm actually finding the Wendy's pretzel bun ads more entertaining than watching this team bat.

And yet, somehow Schoop's OBP is lower than Flaherty's. What do you call someone whose numbers are worse than a guy who "blows".

One run in 23 innings against the tribe (and counting).

Sorry, Kevin.

 

You're gonna need to throw a shutout.

Swept by a .500 team.

Yeah, Schoop does have a little bit lower obp against righties than Flaherty does. You can flip a coin with these two almost. Either way, Flaherty isn't any kind of meaningful upgrade over Schoop against righties, and with some of the ugly at bats he has had lately, it doesn't bother me that he is sitting.

I went outside and mowed a little bit before the afternoon thunderstorms hit and was hoping to see that our offense broke out and put up 5 or 6 runs when I came back in. Silly me.
