    Talk about the series here. Please no PBP in this thread. Unless otherwise noted all games are on CSN-H (for about 40% I guess).


    6-30 Taijuan Walker, RHP vs. Collin McHugh, RHP 7:10

    7-1 Hisashi Iwakuma, RHP vs. Jarred Cosart, RHP 7:10

    7-2 Chris Young, RHP vs. Brad Peacock, RHP 1:10

    With McHugh and Cosart going, we will win one of those.

    Chris Young is insanely due for some regression, I think we tee off on him.

    Because he is 4-23 in the past week or so.

    Because we almost swept the Tigers with Altuve-Springer-Singleton at the 1-2-3.

    Because Porter makes reasonable decisions.

    Because Bo porter is a genius.

    Fowler's no big deal stiff back has cost him 4 games now.

    Right, but he's 1-1 with a sacrifice in his last 2 at bats.

    Porter is definitely all over the place... maybe if he'd have given Fowler the random day off here and there (like he does with everybody else), he'd be a little healthier (instead, he's played in every game since he came back from the stomach bug).

    However, Qualls is unavailable after nights of pitching 9 and 12 pitch innings, and he definitely can't pitch multiple innings.

    Yet he brought in Fields to close in 3 consecutive games (each with decent pitch outings) earlier this year which resulted in a BS the third game (granted maybe this is Porter learning from his mistakes, and taking the ultra-cautious route... but that's also the problem with inexperienced managers who like to tinker).

    Anyone with insight to Guzman taking over the DH role?

    Carter in doghouse?
