No Reddick you shouldn't swing at 3-0...unless it's an 88 mph fastball down the pipe. A pitch you probably haven't seen since high school then maybe swing

Sanchez only at 60 pitches. Letting him hang around.

We need to save Reddicks 13 mil to help pay to keep Cole.

Greinke with the best at-bat of the 7-9 hole hitters.

Nobody will pick up Reddick at 13 mil. Stros will have to eat some.

Minus the Reddick hit and the Chirrinos hit then yes. He's having better ABs.

I have to bring back this about ZG's competitiveness.

Yordan needs to be in OF and Grienke needs to DH.

He got the filthy stuff low and away. Really a show of respect from Sanchez that he didn't want to eff around with Grienke

Good thing I didn't waste any Rally Kate mojo there. She only has so much in her and I hate to waste it.

Shoulda let him swing for the fences last AB. At least result in a sac fly

I know it's just one data point, but that last AB tells me the sac bunt was a big mistake.

He certainly showed why Hinch's decision to bunt him earlier was rather disgusting. With other pitchers batting, it's a sound decision. With Grienke, it sucked.

This ump is so inconsistent. Both ways. Just plain bad.

Game 3 Gary Cederstrom

Cederstrom had been a less aggressive strike caller than his peers for much of the decade until the past two seasons, when his tendencies seem to have shifted. He went from ranking in the bottom 15 to the top 15 in our Extra Strikes Called Per 150 Pitches stat when the comparison is 2015-2017 vs. 2018-2019.

Most important tendencies: Cederstrom's strike zone appears to have widened the past two years, as he has called more pitches at or near the outside corner strikes than his colleagues. He has been a little tougher than other umps on low pitches, particularly when a right-handed batter is at the plate.

Proving to be true.

They don't swing at any garbage. Ever.
