Can't believe Boone sent Severino back out


At some point Boone has to be a little worried about running through his bull pen the way he did the other night , that scenario doesn't play out well in games 3, 4, etc ...

We make Severino work for two solid innings, then put up those two groundouts in 4 pitches?
Terrible ABs here. We let him off the hook.

Bad inning. Watching first pitch strikes and not working the counts

Only the second pitch to Bregman was outside the zone and it didn't miss by much. The rest were strikes on statcast.

Hope Boone leaves Severino for the third time around... but doubt he does. Need a stress free one from Cole right here.

If you're going to jump on the first pitch, you have to hit it better than that.


Or if you watch a first pitch down the middle, don't swing at a second pitch that's high and outside the zone...

Geez that inning pretty much nullifies what we did in the first

Still waiting for the rest of the country to witness the YA Bombs we've enjoyed since July. Hasn't gone yard since early Sept.

Hinch needs to seriously consider sitting Yordan for the remainder of this series and bring in Diaz. I think the moment is just too big for the rookie

The first pitch "strike" to Bregs was a ball. The first pitch strike to Yordan was on the paint. Yuli had a decent 1st pitch to hit and did swing at it.

I wouldn't mind 6 pitches if our outs were all loud.

They weren't.

Post-season rookie slump / nervousness, IMO.

Bregman's wasn't a strike and Yuli swung at his.

Still 2 runs on the board, he still has 68 pitches, we will get to their pen soon,

Bregman seems to be neutering himself with these constant takes early in the count

He's awesome enough he can still scratch out a .300+ average and good OBP but you gotta feel the XBH and HRs are going to plummet if he's constantly battling 0-2 counts

Honestly the same with Yordon it feels like (except he's striking out instead of grinding out hits)

No it wasn't. The first strike was in off the outside edge and nowhere close to high.

Seriously y'all need to open baseballsavant or statcast. They were not bad calls.

Yep. Reddick offered a great template for how to hit him. Wait for the hanging breaking ball and then mash it out of the park.

We're seeing why the strike box went away.

Seriously my strikezone service disagrees with your strikezone service.

They are definitely making Cole work. We need to get the offense going again. It's going to be tough for him to get into the 8th at this rate. How long has it been since we batted around?

Strike out Judge and Torres in same inning while somehow figuring out how to not be abducted by Gardner, priceless

ETA sorry judge was last inning...but my statement stands

Cole with a grinder strikeout there to keep the clean inning... Still doesn't have his best stuff and is already over 50 pitches. Would be thrilled to get 6 IP of scoreless ball from him.
