Defense or not I'd be playing Alvarez over white at 1B all day every day. Have they not watched Moneyball?

He's got a broken nose from bunting practice. I think we would be paying to much with White and Kemp. May White, a splint, and a rhinoplasty.

The thing about White is I feel like he's just running into hits.

He's still flinching and check swinging at called strikes, swinging with a slow massive uppercut, and still gaining weight by the day.

Yeah he's on a bit of a run but I don't see any indication that it's a result of him making changes or improving one thing in particular. Count me as a hater I guess but I'm just over seeing him in the lineup.

He's only mildly outperforming his xwOBA. His barrel rate is very low. For a guy the Ks so much you'd expect some power.

At this point I think all of this stuff about White flinching is getting way overblown. I've seen every player on our roster flinch at balls that are strikes.

I get it, many on here don't like the guy. There is a lot of hate that flows his way, but he is not the reason this offense has stagnated the past two weeks.

I'm not convinced he's the best option for us. However, I'll let him play with the run he's been on over the last 10 days. Hopefully he can continue it as Bregman and Brantley start to heat back up. Need three guys in the line-up to produce.

I think Tuesday is going to be a big day for guys coming off rehab assignments. Potential to have Springer, McHugh and Stassi all back then

White is the only guy that flinches at fastballs down the middle

wow, I'm pleasantly surprised that Altuve made it back before the all-star break. He must be 100% healthy

Is that what he was saying "Didnt feel right" the other day?

I think Steve Phillips is grasping at straws here. There is no difference in those 2 images. Now if the difference comes in a video that could be a different story, but the still shots are the same.

His glove looks higher in the first image, and I doubt at full speed that is something that they would be able to tell. To me it just seems like he gets to aggressive and lays down a fat ball to be smacked.

He is absolutely not the reason the offense as a whole has struggled, but he is part of the reason. He is also taking up a spot in the batting order that I would rather see the hottest minor league hitter have instead.

Great catch by Reddick.

The only positive side to that is that surely he will regress to the mean, which even for him is much better than that.

Offense has been a bucket of lukewarm spit the past 4 games. Frustrating to watch.

10 in row set down by a mediocre pitcher while scoring 5 runs in the past 3.5 games doesn't generate much excitement

Nice work to get out of the jam after two weak hits

Wonder if they told the team that just because the pitcher gets to bat doesn't mean they all need to be automatic outs.
