I think the player most here would like to see go is Nunez, but he ain't going anywhere until both Devers and Holt are A-OK, and probably not even then, although if he just see him yukking it up in the dugout, that's all right.
I don't want to read too much into today. It was just a weird vibe all around. They had a long pre-game ceremony several players participated in, JBJ lets two balls drop in the wind that he normally gets to, there was the balk nonsense, Holt pulls a hammy after being inexplicably waved in with one out (the OF had the ball in hand as Brock rounded third - he was dead meat), Nunez ole's a potential double play ball, Mookie overruns a ball where he has a chance to gun the guy down at home...and last but not least even though he's a douche Stroman was straight dealing. They weren't sharp for sure and that's what AC meant I'm sure but on the other hand there was a lot of weird stuff going on.
Unsung was the fact that Josh Smith pitched pretty damn good and saved the rest of the pen.
I don't think it's a lazy take to point out the starters could have been better prepared, potentially mitigating the 6-13 start. Every other problem could potentially be fixable at the deadline if not for the ugly start. They still could turn it around, but things would be easier if the rotation had been warmed up sufficiently. You may disagree, but I'm not sure that's a "lazy" take.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
