while it doesn't seem possible, ARod is even MORE irritating tonight

part of me wants to read in the papers "Ben Affleck/J Lo hock engagement ring and go on Vegas bender"

We’ll always have the first half of the season.
As far as that first half, I, and observers who are a lot more knowledgable than I expected this team to be at best, slightly north of 500. This team has overachieved. The wins have been a lot of fun. But the holes in this team have been torturous to watch.

That's his pitch however. A low hanger inside like that is something he put into the stands.
That's a pitch he can hit but that one was too low to be his pitch. This guys been walking people , no need to chase sub standard first pitches just because he can hit them. Wait for a better one. He swung at the first one the last time. Make the guy work.

How many offspeed pitches in the zone does he have to hammer before you change how you pitch to him?

This team just isn’t that good. The starting pitching is so sketchy. Amazing we’ve played as well as we have

I didn't think Pivetta pitched that badly. Bad pitch selection on the homer. A poor block attempt behind the plate, and a bleeder are your other run. Vazquez is commonly occurring in both situations.
