  1. Max played a lot of 1B in the minors. Given his general athleticism, I imagine he would be very good there. Those ballet genes will be useful at times handling the tricky footwork.
  2. What if that's not the nature of his injury? We are accustomed to players getting completely hurt and getting completely healed. It doesn't always happen that way. Are there are injuries that allow less-than-full activity without further degradation, but wouldn't be fully rehabilitated with full rest? I think so. I nursed my balky knees through 10 seasons as a soccer referee by working 5-6 games a week rather than 10-12.
  3. Why is Buxton leading off all the time? Yes, once in a while he gives us one run with an early homer, but he is a free swinger (he and his teammates saw one pitch in that at-bat), doesn't walk a lot, never tries to steal when he gets on base, and his approach at the plate is all about slugging percentage rather than OBP. Middle-of-order hitter, not lead-off hitter,
  4. Thanks! If/when I get back to TF, I'll be sure to look for it.
  5. A ballpark is really a meagre place for a vegetarian. (Unless you are at a Forest Green Rovers' match! England's (world's?) only vegan football club.) Pretzels and nachos and not much else since I'm not supposed to eat a lot of ice cream.
  6. Aren't the other Central Division teams supposed to throw the ball away twice and give us the winning run? What with these Cleveland guys?
  7. I remember that after that trade, Tapani and West pitched for the Portland Beavers, back when we were often among the 100 or so ticket buyers.
  8. That third strike was a thing of beauty. Where was that command earlier in the inning?
  9. I'd settle for getting to the bottom of the third with lead. Some of those pitches were not even in the Gray area.
  10. Two hours and ten minutes so far, and we're only in the 5th. Pitch clock please!
