Mark Johnson used to always say he told the players to go to the plate thinking "the first pitch is going to be a strike and I'm going to swing."

Do it with runs, but above all else keep piling up the pitch count on Paxton.

Yep. And now the offense is gonna do that thing where it chips away for a few innings and then takes the lead.

Alvarez almost a guaranteed out these days. So tired of him watching 1st strike right down the middle belt high.

He sucks, yet Hinch won't sit him.

And replace him with?


Diaz or Tucker.

At the very least we need to make them use up their bullpen so they have nothing left if they have to face Cole.

Did y'all forget Yordan hit like .360 and Diaz and Tucker both hit below .300? Which of the 3 is more likely to get hot?

So we get his ****ing pitch count to 53 and then he gets 2 outs on 5 pitches.

Great, guys.

After looking at roster, possibly Tucker...but your point is valid. Hopefully he'll figure it out.

What is all that movement in Paxton's glove before he throws? Is that how he's covering up his movements to not tip or something?
