And how do you hear a rib pop from upstairs?

Still question the quick movement that he makes to show where it is. This was 2 days after breaking a rib? I would think he would be a lot sore and moving a little slower.

OK, well then what do you think he will get? It's easy to say he won't get something but why don't you take a stab at what he will get?

Also is it not weird that Gattis has not signed somewhere? A little a streaky but a more than decent hitter. I'm shocked someone hasn't thrown a few million bucks his way.

He's an older Tyler White. Not shocking at all that he didn't sign anywhere. Teams are clamoring for positionless career .240 hitters that have shown a clear decline in performance over the last 3 seasons.

You don't think Gattis would be one of the best hitters on the Rangers?

He would not be one of their best hitters.

No, but he would be one of their best pitchers.

Gattis career OPS is .775.

Rangers catcher OPS is .528 & DH is .762.

I think he might help them.

No

Believe it or not but the Rangers have the 3rd best OPS in the league.

Their pitching is bad but their offense is legit.

The problem with Gattis to the Rangers is that their two best healthy hitters are already both old DHs.

There are plenty of other teams that could use him though.

Dallas gets 3 years $20 million per (this season prorated) from the Twins. That's my guess
Harry Dunne

OK "best hitters" was too strong but he would definitely help them and many other teams & I'm surprised he hasn't been signed.

10 million max this year. With possible incentives
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Maybe he is desperate enough to take that, but that would be less than the prorated version of the QO and it seems like he would have gone for that by now.

There was a tweet out there from one of the baseball writers that he was going to agree to sign with Boston. I will attempt to find it.

That masseuse owes the Astros his entire salary for the year if true. And how bad do you have to be to crack a clients rib?

Still not sure I buy it.
IF the gist of their story is true (massage and she heard it from downstairs) then it has to be one of two things...

1) Carlos has bone cancer and is basically made of paper (think Dravecky)

or

2) The masseuse was doing something like walking on his back and slipped, breaking his rib.



I get regular massages. My lady kicks my ass and there is no way she could possibly break my rib.

On the radio just now they said that Carlos looks like he's in a hostage situation and that we need to try to read the morse code in his blinks.

I was hoping they wouldn't steal another potential Aggie arm.

Sure would be fun if they took Shumake

I need to sell 2 tickets for the June 12 game vs the Brewers. It is Springer's Thumbs up bobblehead night. The tickets were purchased through the Gametime App so I can transfer them to you through that app. They are Section 311 Row 2. If I can get $80 for the pair I'd be happy. I think after fees I paid $94 total.

PM me or shoot me an email at bearkatag@gmail.com

Boston is the absolute worst. Even over NYY.

That article on the Astros development stuff was awesome. I cannot imagine an employer telling me to do something and me getting fired for flat out saying "no, that's stupid."

Who's stupid, now?

Well if you are hitting .059 you better make defensive plays to help keep a game tied in the...7th inning.
