Is there a reason the Stros continue to trot out Yuli Gurriel everyday. He's been horrific for a month plus now. .205 woba 26 wRC+ Woof. Why not see what Tyler White can do-

A step in the right direction for Sev, but still very wild. I could see him as a great streaming against certain matchups but against a weak TOR... he needed to make it through at least 6IP.

Yes he does.  What he's been doing with the bat (in a very small sample size) means he belongs back there for catcher eligibility.  Fantasy baseball means more than however many bad throws he makes for Toronto. :D

 

In all seriousness, while I don't feel like actually taking the time to rewind the game and watch the play, I think it might be a little drastic to say he actually doesn't belong back there based off of one bad play.

Nice to see Tim Hudson in the A's booth. He was a solid pitcher in his day.

Rain delay in Mets/philly.  Would suck if degrom can’t make it back out.

He might be able to, the rain is supposed to subside within the hour, unless someone in Philly can give us an update.

Lot of A's at the game today.  Mulder and Zito.  Lidle (RIP)'s wife.  Really cool to see the gang back together again.

Rewind it ....it was something I never seen from a catcher 

Jansen stepped around Didi and threw the ball where the second baseman stands

I live about 15 miles from CBP and it’s not raining where I am. I do hear a little thunder off and on though. 

The weather says there is a 30% chance the thunderstorm will continue into the 6 o’clock hour. 

I hope degrom can get back out there.

Wow Cory Lidle - still remember that crash. Terribly sad. Can't believe it was going on 12 years ago now.

Jermaine Dye joiming the booth after the break.  Celebrating the 20 game streak bested by the Indians last year.

 

Really amazing job my BMel getting so much production from this staff especially Fiers, Jackson, Cahill.

Yep.  Lidle was the overshadowed 6 IP 2-3 ER workhorse.  Cool to see the crew talked to his widow.
