Rondon should be effective on a night the ball is flying out of the park

Is the lack of Strom the reason for our recent pitching implosion?

Please get his man back ASAP
He was working with LMJ today at MMP. He will be back on Monday when the team gets back to Houston.

Thank goodness, Rondon is coming in...

Sorry, not much to do but laugh at this point. Team is obviously struggling through a spell, most notably the pitchers. They are getting tagged.

MLB definitely added some juice to their most recent batch of balls. So many teams with double digit runs tonight

I saw a LMJ Instagram story today that was a picture of him with Strom at MMP and said he had a flat ground session with him today.

Guessing he's back after this road trip

That first pitch was literally exactly the same place as his strike 2 to Alvarez

August baseball = you better swing for fences with hot weather and juiced balls

This has been a brutal run since Sunday...the offense has scored in 19 innings and the pitching staff has surrendered runs in the home half of 9 of those.

I'm not sure what the MLB average is on that, but I'm doubting it's near 50%.

Has Springer always fallen on that back knee like this? Seems very exaggerated lately.

Oh, and here's a hot/drunk take- I'm done with Reddick. Let's roll with Brantley, Marisnick, Springer and Diaz in the outfield.


Replace Diaz with Ted


Good with that, too. Does Reddick's defense (graded lower than Brantley last time I checked) make up for what we think Ted could offer offensively this time around? Let's find out.
The problem with Yordan, Tucker and Brantley is they are all left fielders. Brantley showed last game that he is a below average right fielder. Reddick is the only right fielder on the team when Springer is playing center
How did Tucker go from being a CF to now he can only play left?

We gotta score 8 more to stay ahead of our own pitchers.

Just tuning in and saw four home runs by our core guys and we're down 6-4?

August slump indeed,
Don’t Care. Got Jimbo

Sounds like you blocked out last year. It happens...

He's a center fielder? I didn't realize. Based on how he played left field last year I just assumed that's the only spot he could play

Well if we are going just on last year he needs to go sell insurance for a living. I'm hoping that was all an anomaly. He has played a lot of CF in the minors. At the very least that means he has range.

That homerun assures that Reddick will not lead off 8th

This is 2 years old but I'd be surprised if he went from this to LF only this quickly...

Tucker Scouting Report said:

Defense Right now, Tucker works very well in center field. He has exceptional reads off the bat, and he can do some great things tracking the ball even with his average-ish speed.

With his frame filling in, he could end up working better in a corner long-term, but he should provide very good defense in a corner with the reads he gets on balls and solid defensive routes that he takes.

Arm - Tucker's arm is fringe-plus, but I think if he were tracked over to a corner, that would allow the high end accuracy he has to play up even further.
