I know nothing. Obviously. But I’m quite sure at one point if you PH for DH, you lost it
From the rules, these are the in game reasons disqualifying the use of the DH.

If a player serving as the DH is later used on defense, he continues to bat in his same lineup spot. But for the rest of the game, his team cannot use a DH to bat in place of the pitcher. A team is also barred from using a DH for the rest of the game if the pitcher moves from the mound to another defensive position, a player pinch-hits for any other player and then becomes the pitcher, or the current pitcher pinch-hits or pinch-runs for the DH.

That's so confusing to me on a Sunday morning.

Obviously he's bummed, but I thought Casas seemed more matter of fact than down.
Glad you posted this, that was my impression too. My prediction is a strained intercostal, anticipated out for 4-6 weeks, will actually be 8 weeks.

Folks, I figured out Bobby's slump...

It's my fault. I used to sing "Bobby you are the greatest evah!" and other such encouraging stuff a couple years ago when he came to the plate and typically he would do something better than striking out. I stopped doing that when the season ended. I remembered that just now and started signing just before Bobby made contact and lined to third. I feel really shitty for letting the Sox, Bobby, and you all down.

Rest assured, next at bat, i'll be singing Bobby's praises.
Holy shit, it worked!! Bobby D walked!!!
