Reddick really looked like he made it.

that inning was a good example of why batting average still matters.

Angels decided not to pitch to the .295 hitter and face the .230 hitter instead.

that was the right decision

Top of the order no producing the past 2 games. A couple of walks tonight, but 1 hit tonight between Wednesday and tonight. Just a bummer it's all at the same time.

Just need the top of the order to come through and string together a couple of hits. We'll be in business if we do that.

It was the "right" decision because it worked. Chirinos has been better than Reddick and it isn't close.

Looks like the entire team outside of Brantley is hungover from the 4th.

4 hits in 6 innings and 3 of the hits are from Brantley. A whole lotta weak contact from everyone else and JV doing what JV does the last month of the season...giving up HRs.

What is your BA threshold in that situation?

What if it was Josh Reddick (.295) or Edwin Encarnacion (.225) in that situation?


By the way, I pretty much agree with you that BA, in most cases, is still a decent stat to lean on.

Springer has been super aggressive lately. Seems like he's hardly worked any pitchers.

Pretty much two games in a row.

And that's 4 HRS given up tonight. No excuse for that.

Geez. Yuli. I will forever call you "over the hill" if it results in this type of power surge. My goodness. Now, go rub Jobu on your friend at second base and all will be right in the world.
