    If we can't hit Jake ****ing Arrieta they should just forfeit the last 2 games.

    Greinke is probably pissed he's missing a chance to bat.

    This is a guess, not a report. I know trying to
    guess who Dusty will play and his BO is crazy, but what else is there to do? Maybe Stubbs gets a start since he bats left, maybe not.

    He’s appeared in 93 games and tallied 393 plate appearances with a .321/.372/.559 batting line in that time. Siri has clubbed 16 home runs, 29 doubles and four triples while also going 24-for-27 in stolen-base attempts.

    Well, you got 3 out of 9 right...that'd get you into the ASG if you were a hitter.

    I have absolutely no idea why he doesn't put Altuve in the leadoff spot in his spreadsheet lineups.

    He's at 92 games this year, he played 122 and 111 and zero his first 3 years in pro ball so he gets a couple of days rest, there's 29+Postseason left. Alvarez/Tucker/Brantley only makes sense in an NL park when Framber is pitching, and those planets happen to align Saturday. Just guessing that's why he's out tonight, but I don't see the big deal.
