If it can be handled without the police to the satisfaction of both parties it should be handled without the police. The justice system is just going to muck it up. I am sure Deetz got some cash considerations

I'm going to root for the Yankees to lose every night. We have proven to be able to win in dodger stadium but Yankee stadium is a different story
The only downside to losing homefield to the Dodgers is I really want Grienke to be able to bat but with the playoffs who knows what the rotations will look like depending on how long each series go.

On second thought, scratch all this talk, I don't want to tempt the baseball gods. I just want us to make the playoffs and we'll take it from there.

Agree. Wonder what a bat up side the head is worth?

Greinke is guaranteed to bat one game in LA unless he throws Game 2 in Houston

Continuing to have a spot on the 40 man when you haven't earned it probably.

Yuck at that lineup.

Can't we wait to give George a rest day when we don't have Framber on the mound?

And Framber has sucked so much as a LHP, according to the lineup card, he's throwing righty.

6-9 spot + FV will be troublesome today.

strangely enough...I'm okay with George getting a day off. Just 1 for 9 in the series hitting in front of Altuve, Brantley, and Bregman who have been hot.

however Hinch needs to be ready use him as a pinch hitter for any of the 7 thru 9

and looking at George's OPS by month:

April ---> .942
May ----> 1.211
injury
June ----> .787
July -----> .862
August --> .858

something may not be quite right. He's hitting .303 in August and drawing walks, but not hitting for power. Only 3 HR's this month and all solo shots

Gotta admit, not a fan of the stormtrooper look.

Need to whale away on this guy early and often.

Gets another man in scoring position and prevents the GIDP

Just as Yordan grounds out into a potential double play ball...instead, he gets a sac grounder with scores a run.

Very good move.

Is Framber this bad with the zone in the minors too? Is he really the best option for a spot start callup?
