If nothing else, sports will surprise you. Unbelievably, I'm clamoring for Bobby Dalbec to start every game at first ...
I think they have to bite the bullet and sit one of Verdugo, Schwarber or JD each game ...WIth Schwarb at first, just so much horrible D and Bobby has improved there, too ....

the fact that Cora is pitching a guy not on the 40 man a bit ago, in a pennant race on 9/13 is flat out unbelievable.

Why bring Sawamura up if he can't pitch?

It's also been amazing in this stretch of losses how many soft contact hits the other side has gotten .... swinging bunts, bloop hits, one after the other extending innings and pitch counts .... luck runs in streaks

I like this , at least until somebody else starts generating team hitting because Bobby seems to be the only one who gets guys moving round the bases all the way home

Bringing him in was defensible IMO. He was going to face two righties who wouldn't be pinch hit for towards the bottom order. And he is god awful against lefties.

Does anyone else remember when Brazier was five for five in hold opportunities and only gave up 1 run in 8.2 innings in high leverage spots against three really good teams?

That was really awesome!
