Jake is right on JV's tail for the 3000K club.

Need to pinch hit for Jake next time he comes up to bat. Need baserunners and hit more than his defense


Hinch should have started Tucker instead of Jake

Ah, well, worked his pitch count up this inning and the line up is turned over.

Go get at least 1 next inning.

Wouldn't bother me at all if Jake didn't make the playoff roster. Complete liability at the plate.
He's a mess at the plate but the last position player rarely gets ABs anyway & his defense could make a difference.

If you're removing Jake and taking away his defense, then I would prefer Brantley being in there instead.

Really glad you're not the manager. Jake is a great bench guy. Speed and elite defense late.

Brantley is resting today.

And defensively Tucker is better than Brantley

If we tie for the best record, who gets home field for the WS

I wonder if a pitcher has ever gotten 3000 career Ks and 300 season Ks in the same game.

and Brantley is batting like .170 in September.

JV is going to get 3,000 and 300 in the same game and still be pissed when he's done

Top of the lineup really needs to do something, they've been completely ineffective recently

Probably part of the reason he's getting the day off. My comment was not taking him with rest into account. I was just saying I'd rather have Brantley in the line-up over Tucker if I had to chose. Glad he's getting the day off though. So far this season it seems like he's come out hot after a day off.

Well Hinch doesn't care about this game. just lifted Springer for Tucker as a pinch runner
AggiEE
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Huh... why take Springer out? I mean, we're getting a huge rest after tomorrow

At least Altuve cares about this game. Good thing Hinch pulled Springer though. That trot from 1st to home is pretty taxing

Still need 1 win to get home field in the WS. Seems worth playing everyone for. Oh well.

Tuve!!' We really needed that... wish Springer was still in the game tho

mathguy86 said:

I've learned from TexAgs that Hinch is perfect in all of his decisions and any questioning of him means you don't think he's a great manager

And there is no such thing as getting Hinched

For the record, I love Hinch but times like this I really question his extreme conservatism...and sometimes not playing enough small ball to get the runner to advance when we desperately need a run
