    Altuve, Pena, Yordan, Breggy, Tuck should the top 5 order, no doubt

    I told yall Breggy takes the opposing team pitching around Yordan to him personally and he usually produces

    He really isn't. Lots of Ks, no walks, and middling power (.119 ISO). People greatly overrate players with empty batting averages. Look at Dubon, when he was "killing" it he was hitting like a league average player due to his inability to walk or hit for power.

    Can we ALL come together now and proclaim Pena MUST be placed second in the lineup in front of Yordan?

    Finally, everyone?

    Yuli dives for the grounder that got by Abreu.

    At least Dubie was hitting doubles and led the team with it. Pretty much Brantley without the walks.

    That’s definitely a ball Yuli gets. Just a horrific signing at this point. I know it isn’t the case but the dude looks like he simply isn’t trying. He’s bad in almost every facet.

    I'm not going to complain much about Julks and Dubon because they have filled in fine with all these injuries. Those 2 have been good roster depth.

    And even with the huge drop in homers, Abreu didn't have any fall off in doubles last season. Although I guess if several of the doubles had gone over the fence, then his doubles would have been down.

    Yuli has won at all levels and can step it up. He just has it in his blood. Abreu never really won a thing with the White Sox. I guess they made the playoff a few times due to a very shallow division. I'm concerned we won't be able to replace Yuli's consistency in the post-season. Abreu isn't used to the pressure.

    I blame this bases loaded on Abreu. Jose, not Bryan.

    Thank you.

    We should all be appreciative of those 2 helping keeping us afloat.

    Get the sweep tomorrow and get the bats going while you’re at it.

    After that, we get Correa
