Mayfield is overmatched right now, but I feel for him. He's really not supposed to be here.

whoa, that's the Round Rock Astros and then some (with no Brantley in the lineup).

and yes, the Mayfield experiment needs to end. Doesn't have a hit since his first one


Are they really experimenting with him when he's only been with the club like a week and a half and not even played but half those games?

Look, I'm not trying to be argumentative here, but it just seems like people are setting themselves up. What's the reaction going to be if they call Alvarez up and he goes through the same stuff as Mayfield?

"They didn't use him right, he needed to get everyday at bats to get in a rhythm."

Sound familiar....

Yup! And I've even said that!

I do still stand by that if the club does think a player is going to be the next big thing then they should be willing to find more days for him to play every couple of days.

My point with Jack is I feel the organization didn't really want to have to bring him up but did because of injury.

Mayfield has hit .260 in a lot of AAA ABs. He's here because and only because we're gimp and has made some nice plays. Not sure why anyone thinks this is an experiment or was expecting peak A-Rod numbers out of him.

Honestly that wasn't even directed at you, I just remember all the comments when Tucker didn't do well. Also, I agree with you 100%.

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

Sure would be fun if they took Shumake
Shewmake to Braves at 21

Ha, I knew your comments weren't directed at me. I was just owning up the fact that I was making those comments in regards to Tucker!

I also will echo the sentiment that I hope Corbin gets win #2 tonight!

It may be his last if it isn't a good start.

How the hell is that toe tap not a balk? Its a form of a start/stop/restart of his motion.

Had Jake on the bench in an extra innings game and a rather slow baserunner had just reached.

Little different but on that similar topic, pitchers being able to set...reset....set again is a personal pet peeve of mine.

Even though it's subtle it just aggravates me and I think they should start calling a balk on guys who are obnoxious about it
