    That's twice we're hacking on the first pitch in a huge situation.

    Rays have done their damndest to lose this game, Stros just refuse to win it.

    The send should have been before Yuli smacks a DP ball, lol. Brantly would have scored only if the throw way way off.

    If that throw is even remotely close..even if the catcher has to dive for the ball and come back...he still has time to yawn and tag out Brantley. I don't think it would have been close.

    Just a terrible approach from what used to be a good hitter.

    So. I am on here for the basketball. And maybe I don't know a lick about baseball. Is the goal to hit the ball as soon as possible? Like D'Antoni's 7 second offense.

    And all these guys fighting off pitches to get to he best pitch are doing it wrong?

    Sorry I am a basketball guy... like I said.

    You're not wrong, but you can't send a guy there.

    With those quick hands i didn’t think I’d ever say Yuli was the weak link but he so much in his own head right now

    This just isn’t our nigh but we had opportunities. Sometimes the breaks just don’t go your way.

    Tomorrow is going to suck with the Rays having their 3 best releivers available.

    Yeah but we are going to have to eventually if we want to win this series. Luckily it's a 7 game series, but this game has been such trash.

    Well, it's not over, and if we pull this one off it'll break them. Everything possible broke their way this game.

    I know he’s been struggling bad but he’s been so good for us for as long as we’ve had him. He’ll redeem himself next time. This is a long series and I didn’t expect it to be easy. Keep riding this wave guys.
