Wouldn’t have minded it if Franchy had hit for Dalbec there.

This lineup is so frustrating at the bottom.

I'm surprised that there haven't been wholesale changes yet.

Not exactly murderers row there.
Hold them here in the 8th, and the big bats will have a chance in the ninth.

DOB actually wondering why people would stay up this late to listen to him. I guess that makes the both of us.

Are the umps not checking for sticky stuff anymore?
Basically looks that way. Seems like pretty lax enforcement. They are “checking” but it’s just a quick hand touch/glance. Seems like it would be pretty easy to hide.

Please move Kike down in the order (I would say bench but I do not see a good replacement).

He has made outs like 500 (it's a gamethread and I'm very tired) times today and then Devers leads off the next inning with a hit.

I’m in agreement here. I’m all for Franchy batting lead off for a while.

Grrrr. That was disappointing with the better hitters up. Here’s hoping we can hold them in the ninth and get a few more good bounces in extras.

Well, if they can get to the tenth, it'll be speedy Story on second with Verdugo at the plate. Which would be a good situation.

Bonus (west coast) baseball! Don’t we always seem to have a game like this on the west coast swing? Goes extras and ends at like 2:15 EDT?
