Was anybody else cringing just a little when Florimon took that pop-up?


I had a Castro flashback.

Yeah, but it most likely had nothing to do with Castro.

Gardy assures us confidence is not an issue for Hicksie.



Too bad. Confidence can be fixed with a couple of base hits. Inability to make contact it a bit tougher and is frequently incurable.

Looking at pitch location, KC is really doing a nice job of hitting corners with good command, just needs to get it down a bit for continued success, but well done sir.

Should'a gone fishing

Up and in, up and in, changeup down and away for a tailor made DP. Nice pitch.

Apparently Gladden is not to confident in Hicks. He just said, "here is where we need a ball bounced in the dirt and go back to the backstop to move up these runners".

It took me a minute to why you were using the generic KC to describe Santana's pitch location......didn't dawn on me you might be talking about Correia.

Must've been some flight from Baltimore to KC.

Parker needs to explain how Correia is good to TD. I don't quite get it.

Too soon to say that he is good, but, perhaps, Ryan saw something that we didn't?
