    Surprised it was him over Nivaldo. No big deal either way though.

    The rule always was you could lick your fingers to keep them moist enough to grip the ball, but had to wipe them on your jersey before touching the ball to prevent spitballs. They banned that for 2020 because of covid, but I'm assuming they're allowing it again this year.

    Ehh... more 40 man roster moves will be needed when Baez and James come up so Nivaldo might not be here much longer either.

    Good ol' Joey Gallo runner at 3rd less than 2 outs strikeout.

    Robel Garcia and Taylor Jones each have as many sac flies this season as Gallo has in his career. One.

    Hang on, he’s still got to face the hard hitting bottom 3 of Toro, Maldy, and Robel.

    Oh I don't disagree, he has done his job rather well as of late. Relieving is tough, no credit when you "do your job" and you get flamed when you slip up.

    Hey I got an idea: Let's put the GM in the booth and spend a half-inning talking about the sac bunt.

    “So, James, what is your best offense metric, and how do you use that to evaluate minor leaguers?”

    “umm…”

    [and break to commercial, leaving Click visibly relieved and us frustratingly uninformed.]
