    Looks like he tried to pitch through a blister or broken nail, and it just didn't ****ing work.

    I would empathize more for Odo if he wasn't such a whiny moaning b**** about every little thing. His body language, attitude, and resting b**** face makes him easy to hate.

    Saw this performance from 146 miles away. To top things off Better Call Saul had a dreaded filler episode. first place problems. At least win one this series.

    If Chas is going to do a Bagwell impression with his batting stance he needs to drop that butt

    I think part of it is Jake seeing the same team not twice but thrice in a row, but still, he has always been inconsistent.

    Anyway, time to give Chas regular at bats in CF.

    This was on paper the easiest pitching matchup in our favor.

    The next 2 are legit pitchers for Oakland.

    Figure out how to take 2 of 3.

    And yet, the Astros are playing 0.650+ baseball. Would you rather they beat up on the bad teams more and lose to the good teams?

    Or perhaps he recognizes that our one star pitcher is coming off TJ surgery and the rest have never pitched full seasons, so it's a good thing to sacrifice some games to try to keep your pitchers fresh for the playoffs. It always fascinates me how concerned fans are with trying to win every meaningless regular season game, even at the cost of ideal postseason strength. Why *wouldn't* we want Jake to eat as many innings as possible during the regular season?

    Good point. I like your perspective. Still would be fun to pull this win out somehow for Breggys bday.

    Not really a spoiler but still not cool. Whatever. Im just traumatized from other past experiences. Not on here though.

    But I avoid social media and comment sections all the time if I know a big show is coming up.
