I appreciate the fact that Yordan rarely swings at balls. However, for someone with his power, he is more passive than I'd like to see. Watched two slow pitches go by for strikes with the bases loaded. I just don't get it.

Wonder how that shadow was messing with his ability to see the ball.

We are immune to clutch hits this afternoon. One more chance in the 9th with top of order. Not over yet, but been a frustrating watch today.

Uncle Mike and Diaz both bailed out a pitcher who was all over the place

Altuve, Yordan, Uncle Mike and Diaz with horrible at bats when we could have done some damage

Altuve is not good with the baes juiced. He's too aggressive and will not work a count for a good pitch.

Because pitching on a zero pressure bad team in Toronto is a lot different than every time you enter its for a pennant or high leverage situation

Giles imo is a pretty good example of overall "numbers" being pretty worthless. Stick him in games that matter and get back to me

I've noticed that Yordan is taking a lot of called strikes --- and as a result getting behind in the count

thank goodness Tucker will be here soon.

so when Hinch decides to rest Brantley (and by the way does he need a day off every week?)...we won't have to watch another 0-fer from Jake with a GiDP for good measure

This. It's unnerving to watch him swing early in the count when the pitcher just walked someone on 5 pitches. He only gets a pass because he's a .300+ hitter.

Disappointing we don't take care of business versus the bottom-feeders.

Pffft, it happens all the time to the best of teams and we had Framber pitching to boot. If we regroup tomorrow and take the series, which is likely with Verlander on the bump, that's what you expect on the road.

Toronto has a lot of good young talent to be honest
