Is it all mental for Reddick? He's not hurt, and had 3 months to figure out how to get through this slump

He had a good start in April.

Maybe we played him too much? I think we should just give him a nice six month rest to recover and hopefully he can get back to April numbers

I know

That to me was an impressive "pitching"

The 1st three pitches on top of each other at the bottom of the zone. Then the high heat he swung under

Nice!

Crazy to think about where this team might be without Yuli's production in the second half. What a turn-around.

Wouldn't the Yankees winning 2 of 1 be best case scenario for us if we sweep the Angels?

We'd end up tied with them and 2 behind LA, right?

I dunno at least I think that's a best case scenario for us.

Even a Yankees sweep of them wouldn't be bad if we sweep the Angels. We'd stay 1 behind them and tied with LA.

I'd take both of those scenarios going into September.

We got over 30 games left. I'd relax on living and dying by their outcomes.

Probably still in first.

Hm, really went out on a limb there didn't you.... This team is supposed to be first in the AL West. Post was meant to highlight the first base production in the first half, particularly Yuli's, which was not where it needed to be for a real World Series contending lineup. Yordan was a God send too, but Yuli's impact on run production in the second half can't be understated.

There was that stretch of games he was batting leadoff and was terrible. Has he sucked since then? Maybe failing in that role did some mental damage?

Minnesota choking on their cupcakes. Lost to the Tigers tonight. Starting 1-3 on their 13-game creampuff stretch

I agree. Yuli has been amazing. But it isn't all that crazy to think about. We're so deep across the board that we could still be very good if Yuli wasn't all world.

Tigers and white sox have been playing teams tough over the last couple of weeks.

strange seeing so many balls put in play by the opposition.

only 1 K tonight for Greinke


According to fan graphs his K per 9 ratio is below league average. Peaked around 2011-2012. Obviously pitching is more than strikeouts but the high level of contact can create some white knuckle moments with traffic on bases in playoffs.
