Good topic came up on 790 with Ross.

How stupid are fans booing at pitchers throwing to 1st.

My take. Very.

I agree it's stupid, but I love booing the opposing pitcher when he does it. But not like a real boo...like a sarcastic, "I'm the only one he can hear after everyone else stops" boo.

Then at least be non hypocritical about it and boo our own pitchers when they do it too.

I'll take fans booing the pitcher for throwing over to 1B for the rest of the next AB if it meant the end to the wave.

What's worse? The wave, or the guy who waits until it's a section over to stand up and wave?

follow up: is that guy as bad or worse than my previous statement about being the lone, late booer?

Wouldn't mind giving him some more rest but I hope it just looked worse than it really was

Preach. I don't mind it too much if it's a blowout late in a game, but some guy in our section yesterday was orchestrating it in the bottom of the 8th of a 3-1 game when we had Bregman, Alvarez and Correa up. C'mon, people...

We are going no DH tomorrow. Gotta let Grienke hit and lets Yordan get some rest

Seeing the postseason schedule reminded me of a couple of things that I'd like to see MLB do...idle ramblings on an off day.

1. Have every team play a regularly scheduled DH at home, preferably during the early part of the season (pre-ASB). Maybe one on Memorial Day and another on the 4th of July...teams that were at home for the first would be on the road for the second. Allow teams an extra 4 roster spots for those game days only, and not have it count against the player's option count. The schedule could have additional off days built in to compensate. Maybe price it at a rate of 1.5x a regular game ticket so that there's a bit of value to it. This is admittedly wishful thinking, and I clearly haven't thought all of the minutiae out...the MLBPA would never go for it, though.

2. Have one of the weekend WS games have a daytime start. The last non-prime time start (Eastern or Central time) for a WS game was in 1987, and the Saturday game would be the logical spot. It's competing against college football no matter what time it starts, so put one of the games on at a time when kids (and hell, some of us nearly-old-timers) can watch an entire WS game without having to stay up really late.

Agreed, it's time to see what the kid can do. Also we should be facing easier arms and there should be less overall pressure on him.

He'll be here with September call ups. Really hoping he succeeds.

If he mashed a .900 ops at number 8 in the lineup it'll be insanity

Dodgers task to fix Tubbie.

God luck with that. You might want to start by suppressing his appetite.

I was there for the Fiers one. Unforgettable. Lots of great pictures with the family that day, too.

I heard a former long time player and ML manager call him a minor league player.

Crazy that our lowest batting average outside of catcher in our normal lineup belongs to Bregs.

Can't argue with those facts

Round Rock is a minor league team

To add more fuel to the fire... Tucker was batting better last year at AAA compared to this year, was called up, and was pretty awful (and this was before the juiced balls hit minor leagues)...

While I'm sure the Astros have it, I wish we had his minor league splits by pitch. He was flat awful against anything with movement last year, especially down in the zone. Not a recipe for success. Alvarez has shown the ability to adapt and have professional ABs. If he had fixed his issues, the Astros would have called him up again already.
