    wtf is the matter with these fans? And then they still had the gall to ask for the ball after? I wouldn't give it to them either!

    Did you notice on the replay that the right fielder had his eyes closed when the ball hit his glove?

    When a hitter has a 0.71 batting average / .161 OBP, he's obviously not having nearly enough quality at bats.

    I saw him play last year in Cedar Rapids and I tend to agree with you, but since the "new normal" standards for SS have now included some semblance of hitting ability and Nunez apparently qualifies in this regard, I thought I'd throw his name in the hopper,

    I'm very nervous that someone on TD is going to be honking mad that Corriea was allowed to start the 8th.

    Gibson, Nolasco, now Corriea have each put in good starts. This is encouraging. I'd like to see Corriea get out of this jam... Damn Plouffe just threw it into the outfield...

    He tried!!! Plouffe Tried!!! I'm good with that.

    However... He ain't Nolan Arenado or Brett Lawrie.

    Pinto homer is pretty cool.

    I think we have found a guy who can catch 75 games a year and DH a bunch more. Just need to find the catching partner for him long term. I think Arcia is DH when he is catching and in the OF when pinto isn't catching.

    Rex Hudler may be the worst broadcaster in all of baseball, but even he was right about something. Why was Plouffe playing so far back on the bunt attempt?
