Problem is, who should lead off if not bregs?
With what is available today, I would say Straw, Marisnick, or Kemp. None are perfect. I just want there to be a better chance he bats with runners on base and the NL park lineups with the pitcher batting 9th really changes it.

brutal game for Chirinos.

0 for 2 w/RISP and a GiDP in another at-bat

Well it'll be up to White, Kemp and Reddick.

The 2 pitches Chirinos swung at in that K were a foot off the plate. Why throw a strike if he is going to swing at pitches that aren't close.

And if we get to a 4th batter, Stubbs (.182) and Mayfield (.143) are all that is left on the bench. I guess it would be Mayfield as he hit well over the weekend and I'm sure they want to save the backup catcher for an emergency.

Posts like this crack me up. You've never been in the box against as half way decent pitcher, have you?

I would recommend you follow Rob Friedman (Pitching Ninja) on Twitter. See just how nasty these pitches are.

Random thought: without looking at the #s, is Joey Votto a HOFer?

And yes, I know this was likely a trap, but last time I looked, he hadn't accumulated stats at the right level and definitely hasn't had any signature moments.

If Fat Elvis couldn't garner 5% and stay on the ballot and Joey Votto gets in the HOF, I will personally volunteer to lace that building with C4 and shoot off the det cord.

Actually, I have. Just in the senior season playoffs, I faced 2 guys that made the bigs. I don't think I had a hit against the first one but scored the winning run after working a walk and stealing 2nd. Against the second one, I led off the game with a single. I think that was my only hit against either of those 2 guys. We lost the state championship game btw.

With that said, why is any of this relevant to me recognizing a bad at bat by Chirinos?

With Altuve coming back tomorrow, is there any chance that was White's last at bat is an Astro? God I hope so.

Shut down by scrub pitching both nights. Have they scored any runs not via HR?
