Pathetic

Biggest problem is that they simply arent changing their approach at the plate

I think thats at least 4-5 games in a row where we just arent putting very many pitches on the opponent each inning

I said 12-4 was what we needed in this stretch of mostly bad teams.

We are now 10-5 and it's impossible.

They are now 2-3 against the As and Angels in the last 5.

All the good work early to dig out of the hole has been completely squandered away. And by squandered I mean they pissed themselves while wasting it.

You cannot fix old age and an increbly slow swing. He is finished but I don't want to upset the Abreu folks

They've still made up 5 games to get to 3.5 back. They are playing better but today was a stinker for sure.

Win tomorrow and go 2/2 or 3/4 from Seattle and your still in a decent place.

That's some pretty selective mathing you are doing Math Guy

Yes, we all knew we blow the 1-2 series against the Angels. It sucked, we got it.

We are 5-1 in this stretch against the A's


Key is win the next 2 against the As, and at least split with the Mariners 2-2.

Plenty of easily series left in June

Continuing to run the same guys out who aren't getting it done (looking at you Bregman) while pretending it is the 2nd week of the season and they will work it out on their own is killing us. At this point, the numbers are the numbers and it is time to play the guys that are producing (like Loperfido) and sit the guys who aren't or at least move them down the order.

I'd like to see Bregman go back down.

Espada must have an investment in Bregman's Salsa business… No reason he should be batting 4th

Maybe Bagwell should spend some time working with Bergman like he did with Tucker and Meyers.

Alex has always used his own hitting coaches and doesn't use anyone on the coaching staff

This thread goes through more mood swings then a woman on menopause.

Disappointing game. Pitching was good. Go get the series tomorrow.

It should be obvious to everyone the AL West will be ours for the taking this year. Despite the amount of self inflicted wounds we've suffered we are still one of the more talented clubs in baseball.

From what I've seen thus far this season I would be a little shocked if we didn't win the AL West, but stranger things have happened.

Bregman should be firing his personal hitting coaches at this point

even if he has a big second half of 2024...what's already happened in the first 2 months will give any team pause on a mega-deal

Bregman should get the Abreu treatment. He is terrible now.

At the Space Cowboys game and Abreu can't hit here either. 0.00 average.

For today: Out on a clock violation and a line out so far.

ETA: And now a GIDP too.

ETA2: And a pathetic K.

Based on Chas and Bregman we will see him regardless of results.

Well, if his two non K's were a pop up to shallow right center and a ground out ot SS, then I'd say he's timed up and ready to roll......

I'm sure Abreu coming back and getting Loperfido sent down will really endear him with the fans

Perfectly fit to platoon with Bregman in the 4 spot?

I get the feeling everything with Abreu was pre-planned / pre-orchestrated

when he agreed to go to West Palm...it would be for exactly 4 weeks

he would not have gone without a promised return date to the major league club

no way he's ready to face Castillo, Kirby, and Gilbert

I wanted to give Espada the benefit of the doubt but his insistence on batting Bregman 4th and keeping Loperfido out of the lineup while probably starting Abreu in Seattle is absolute insanity

He has to go imho, not very much different than Dusty

Abreu looks terrible in the minors. He's done. Sunk cost fallacy. Just release him.

Abreu was supposed to go to Florida to find/fix his swing. He has shown zero signs of doing that. So why on earth would you bring him back and expect different results?

Same reason Bregman is batting clean up. That is, who the **** knows.

Today my baby turned 1 month old and with tears in her eyes… she sat up straight and spoke her first words. I couldn't believe it as she looked at me in the eyes and said "why tf is Bregman batting 4th every game"

Remarkable
