    All series talk goes in here. Non series talk goes somewhere else. No PBP, that can be found from other sources if you need it. All games are broadcast on AT&T Sports SW unless otherwise noted.

    Clicks plan must be to have Yordon in left, Brantley in right, and Tucker in center. I'm sure their plus minus will still be positive ;)

    It's a big outfield in sf.
    Let's see if our rookies sink or swim.
    Hopefully swim ☺️

    I'll be surprised if McCormick isn't in center and Yordan is on the bench to PH.

    Makes sense if you are going to play Alvarez in a game this series tonight is the night. Groundball pitcher in Framber plus nasty righty on the mound for the Giants in Gausman. Lefty on the mound tomorrow with Wood so expect Chas in CF for that one.

    If this is a report and not just speculation, call me surprised. Two OFers playing out of position and the third with not a lot of experience. And SF is a tricky OF.

    See, no worries, it's the best offensive outfield we've had all year...and the worst defensive

    It can't be with Framber and Maldenado in there. Oh. You said OUTFIELD.

    The ump straight up admitted that they knew it wasn't intentional but just wanted to regain control.

    Are y’all really that mad over playing Yordan in left? Lol. Where did Astros fans brains go?

    Why wouldn’t you want to play your three best OF hitters?

    So Dusty Baker says "**** what the FO says, It's Go Time"

    ...and Kyle Tucker is starting in CF tonight.

    I love to be wrong.
