Springer was really moving on that steal. I'm happy he's feeling good but I get nervous every time he goes all out.

White gets an infield single which is followed up by a Kemp dinger.

LAA should just concede the game right now.

And now we know why Alvarez is being kept out of the field as much as possible.

That's a weak effort by Stassi and prime example of why Yordan needs to be permanent DH.

If he isn't trained into playing 1B over the offseason then I don't know what to do with him defensively

I imagine he will be.

Give him some reps with Bags on the backfields and he'll be ready.

And jeez this quite the unraveling act we're seeing.

7 hits in the last 8 batters. Only out he got was a flyout by Trout that was demolished but just sky high.

Who's the next AAA arm to get his shot?

If he is as bad a fielder as they say he has only DH and 1st base. They better have him working all off season at first base. Even if he is 80% a DH and a backup 1st base that's doable. He is not playing in the outfield long term.

Last game before the all star break. Probably the most ideal day to have a full-staff day if you're going to have one

if they will let a guy that hasn't played shortstop since high school start a game at shortstop he must be pretty awful @ 1b too...but I agree.

Urquidy has an ERA of 10.50 (with potential to go higher with the two runners on base) in his 2 Astros starting opportunities. He didn't get out of the 4th inning in start 1 and didn't get out of the 3rd inning in start 2. Just awful.

To be fair, this is the first year Urquidy has pitched above A ball.

Devenski saves Urquidy's ERA from ending at 13.50 by stranding his 2 runners. That was a failed experiment. Who is next? Nothing is at AAA. What is at AA?

Why is he in the major leagues? It isn't Urquidy's fault he is the best available option.

Seems like every pitcher from the minors has crapped the bed. It's been straight trash.
