Both Dozier and Morrison are rally killers.

and another Robby the Rally Killer sighting

"We were open for business on several players, but just couldn't put a deal together that we liked...our biggest pickups will really be the return of All-Stars Sano and Santana as well as the Platinum Defensive player of the year in Buxton...adding those three to our lineup in the second half without mortgaging any future assets is really the best of both worlds"

This team would be better without Dozier, Morrison, Grossman and Wilson.

Let them go, promote Gordon, Vargas, Wade and Sawyer.

Maybe before assuming Cave can’t hit LHP, thd MOY should let him try. He currently is 3 for 10 with a double and HR vs LHP.

He also has hit LHP just fine in AAA this year.

Just a bizarre substitution. If it was gut instinct, it didn't work.

I would let Astudillo pinch hit first.

I don't understand why MOY hardly pinch hit for Wilson. I guess MOY does not trust his young players.

Good mound visit - let’s throw one that clips him in the ankle.

They're using Hammel as a reliever for the first time this year here? Huh... weird. Can't say I'm envious of their rotation.

Striking out looking at a pitch right down the middle. Rally killer Dozier.
