    Greinke was just unhittable today. It was going to be a loss anyway.

    3 of 4 from ARI is nice, and the 8-2 run is refreshing to see (even if TEX and SEA mostly kept up), but we gotta keep forging ahead.

    Crucial 7-game stretch over the next week. Gotta start to win some AL West series and well be in good shape. Lets go!

    Gomez has been good in the past, he should hit 4th in our lineup :)

    That's all that matters, if it takes sacrificing the season to see if Gomez can recapture some of his past glory then so be it. Count me in!

    Yep. Gomez isn't even close to hitting most pitches. It's not like he's going to wake up one day and be a good hitter again. Cut his ass and move on

    You are not "sacrificing the season" by giving a proven MLB hitter like Gomez time over Jake Marisnick. This worst stretch of Gomez's career is in-line with what Jake normally gives us. It's not like the Astros are exactly keeping Willie Mays on the bench right now.
