Y'all quit hating on my boy Air Yordan.

He's a beast and will come through when we need it the most.

Judge not who you want to see when you've had that long of a lay off.

Glad he was able to get the out.

I'd keep Alvarez in still. We know he's capable of great things ... nobody on the bench has proven that. All Alvarez has to do is get a hold of one and it'll be over that short porch in right

Who is your replacement?




Let Diaz DH in the 8 spot. Better than letting Alvarez come up in the 5 or 6 with ducks on, for what seems like every other inning.

We've needed it most almost every time he is up.

Problem is, if someone is injured mid-game, you can't afford to lose the flexibility of Diaz from your bench. You also can't lose Marisnick's speed or defensive prowess. You obviously can't use your back-up catcher.

If Tucker wasn't swinging at pitches above his head, he's who would have to be put there.

Don't use the word "all." His power is still in there

Can't bat 2 lefties back to back. Allows for situational pitching to go against 2 batters without a righty in between.

Cole just can't get out of innings after two outs. It's been one of those days.

Rays and Yanks have both got more folks on base with 2 outs. Maddening

Another 2 out BB or hit. Pitch count climbing...

I agree, but the flip side is you could force them to pull their starter 2nd time through and get to the pen early because of the matchup, then just pinch hit Diaz. Or put Reddick/Tucker in 9 hole

Which lefties would be back to back with Alvarez at the 7?

Just move RF to the 9
