It beats sending Reynolds out there. No offense, Matty, but go, José!

I'm also excited about this Nimmor kid.

I'm guessing the non-Ron voice is that of Gary Apple?

Wayne Randazzo is calling the game tonight - his first TV game.
In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, "I have finished." There is a lot of satisfaction in that - Fred Lebow

Not that I think hell be a sub-par defender, but the reports for going on two years with Rosario were that he could play defensively in the majors RIGHT NOW and it was only a question as to how
quickly his offense would catch up. Those reports don't seem all that accurate so far.
A better play on that ball and that's an entirely different bottom 1st.

Normally I'd say this game is over. But against the Reds in that bandbox, it's still possible.

Easy trivia question. But not as easy as they fly that Reyes completely misplayed.

Lagares didn't break his thumb on that slip ... so there's that.

Or conversely, to suck even worse.
Only in today's America can policy be based on the notion that the rich have too little and the poor have too much.

Four plays not made so far tonight:
- Rosario's throw
- Flexen's kick save
- over Reyes's head
- d'Arnaud not holding on to the OF throw

That plus five walks is a bad combination.
