Top of the order in a definite funk.

I think time to put Correa in the 4 spot.

A comeback here would do a lot for my morale, which honestly is all anyone should really care about.

Even if we win it in the 9th... this has been a pathetic series offensively.

Dumb thought this early in the season, but I'm curious if Alex Cintron isn't as effective as Dave Hudgens was in helping our guys prepare.

Or, we're just starting off in a slump.

Reminds me of last season already. Everyone knew there was a problem, but the stat weenies kept explaining why our inability to hit in high leverage situations wasnt a big deal, because our OPS++WAR or whatever with the bases empty or in blowout wins was fine

I've never understood how you just take the 1st base coach, and make him a hitting coach

If nobody can hit you don't need a first base coach.

My XM audio is perfectly timed with the Fox Sports broadcast.

That was because we had one of the best rotations in mlb history. Look at the difference in WAR between Springer, Reddick, Altuve, Correa, pretty much everyone BUT Bregman, between 17 and 18

Ok I have a confession:

I haven't seen us score a single run this season. Not one. 7 games in. This is the first game I've watched completely from start to finish.

I will cease all baseball watching until we get on a win streak.

Based on the first pitch he probably thought it was outside.

So on the positive side - right now we'll get a top 10 draft pick.
What do you boys want for breakfast BBQ ?.....OK Chili.

Is this where we act like everything is okay after getting shellacked by bottom dwellers?

I'll be happy when we play well, when we underachieve I will be pissed off

We all know you'll be miserable the entire time.

It's bad a road trip and it's a week of baseball.

I'm sure we'll turn it around but I'm also sure this won't be our last bad road trip or bad week.

It's early and a long season. Relax a little
