It's awesome to see Machete back with the team. You can really see how much the pitchers seem to like him. Honestly, it's like he was never gone.

I can't imagine how great it must feel for these new guys to go from their teams to one of the best clubhouses ever and a team that's the odds on favorite to win it all.

it's one of those strange things...

Machete in 2 games back with the Astros...in 9 plate appearances has scored 3 runs and posted 1 RBI.

Stassi had 98 plate appearances with the Astros...and scored a grand total of 4 runs and posted 3 RBI.

he had to go. Every position player has to contribute something to the offense

Completely agree with you. I like Chirinos, but what Machete brings behind the plate is impressive. He had issues in the playoffs last year, but that was mainly with a guy on second. I think on some of those pitches he got crossed up

Vincent Velasquez just threw out a runner at home while playing left field...

What's more interesting here is that Roman Quin was the pitcher that play... he's an outfielder normally.

Anyone got the rundown on how that all happened?

Don't know how it all got set up but he almost did it again... He is humming it at 95mph from left field to home plate...

How? It's a tie game

Why is there a position player pitching and pitcher in LF?

Position player, Roman Quin, pitched 2 innings. Seems like all the bull pen arms and position players had already been used at this point in the game. Seems like the Phillies don't want to waste a starting pitcher for an inning or two.

Shlt...I saw the 9 for pitches and just thought that was the inning. Never even saw the 14

Red Sox (59-52) lost again today. Losing streak stretches to 5.

critical doubleheader vs. NYY on Saturday

Padres trying to hold on against the Dodgers in the 9th.

edit...SD got the win. Roberts might want to put the .650 OPS hitter further down in the lineup

I don't think there's much to see here. I think it was always the plan to give Chirinos a rest when we acquired a suitable backup. Need him fresh for October.

Good grief. I understand why this move was made, but cy Sneed has to be pissed. They keep playing musical chairs with him, despite him pitching very well every time he comes up.

I thought Cy Sneed was the new high school off 290 and Highway 6.

so which starter is Stubbs going to catch?

hopefully neither of the new guys. Sanchez (today) or Greinke (Tuesday)

I get the sentiment, but options being burned probably isn't the worst thing that can happen to a player when it comes to the team gaming the clock on FA. I imagine Tucker wishes he was out of options.

0 chance Stubbs catches for big dick Grienke
