Only on Texags can a guy go 2-4 with two RBIs and get ripped the way White is.

On his first time on the bases, he was so slow that it directly cost us a run. Only advanced one base on each hit. Then, his hit that he squared up off the Monster ended up being a single somehow. Clear double all the way for most anyone else on the team.

The two RBIs were huge in the first inning. But yet again, he could have contributed so much more if he'd put down the damn cheeseburgers.

Yes everybody could be something better if they did something more but the fact that your glossing over his huge contribution because he's fat.

Edited for language, my bad.

Maybe I missed something, but why are both teams wearing camo caps tonight? And what's that emblem on the side of the caps of both teams?

Calm down, Sully. Hardly a "miserable feck"....

This is also his first "huge contribution" all year. He has been awful.

Military Appreciation weekend or something. Not sure why they did it now instead of Memorial day.

Armed forces tribute. Not sure if it's only tonight.

McCann was the same way and there was no vitriol

Look, if he's not hitting, he's pretty much useless. If he continues to hit and people are on base in front of him when he does, you have to live with his speed.

Agreed with Sully. Give the guy a break when he finally shows signs of life.

This is great
Jose Altuve

Altuve led MLB in 2013 with 17 TOOTBLANs. He was picked off eight times and thrown out seeking an extra base six times for the Astros. He was even hit by a batted ball for a TOOTBLAN.

That was a nasty pitch by Will.

I guess it helps when you're on base more often then most others.... But yeah, early Altuve was awful on the basepaths and part of it was terrible coaching and a terrible team surrounding him (he seems to have gotten better but still relapses a bit)

Seems to have gotten better & smarter as he has slowed down a little bit Sometimes to much speed out of control is not a good thing.

Great inning by Harris.

If score remains do you trot out Harris or is Osuna gonna get the 9th?

I'd leave Harris in.

I think you rest Pressley and Osuna.
Intermediate and long relief has been pretty good tonight.

I know you follow White closely. What I can't figure out is why he changed his routine at the plate. Last year was his best year ever and his routine at the plate was to do a sort of wrist swing a couple of time before each pitch. Now he just steps in and rests his bat. I've never seen a player make a change like that after a good season.

Hold osuna in reserve. I wouldn't show them osuna unless the tying run was coming up to the plate.
Agnzona

Stassi maybe more useless than White and he can actually play a position.

Agreed. Only way Osuna comes in for me is if Harris gives up 2 runs.
aka Sloan Kettering aka Lazlo Hollyfeld

Yeah, you definitely don't bring in Pressly or Osuna, but not sure you trot Harris out there again in case you want him tomorrow. Maybe a quick outing for Devo or Valdez if you want to play with fire.

Some girl named Biggio is 2 for 2 for Notre Dame in the AZ regional. Is that Craigs daughter?

I will give him credit in that his bat looks a lot quicker today. He's still mostly arms though and just isn't loading the swing in the lower body very much. That's why he still hasn't come close to a HR.

Jake a little too aggressive on those pitches

And then K looking on an obvious strike. Terrible

By the conversation in the booth you'd think it was a double digit blow out between two cellar dwellers and not a good game between the last two world series winners.

Why do I think when Tyler White's career is over, he's going to be one of the best softball hitting players?
