    I wish I could cheer for him more easily. But I'm glad he's been productive lately.

    Interestingly, at this exactly moment in time Russell is having what would be tied for the best hitting season of his career. That's simultaneously sad, and moderately interesting.

    And as much as I dislike him, he's almost certainly our best option at 2B. His defense really is just ridiculously great.

    Over a curated small sample size even bums like Descalso can look good. Russell has a career OPS just over 700 and his numbers this season are right around that.

    I'd prefer Bote/Garcia get a majority of the ABs. I know Bote has been struggling lately but he's still for the most part been a valuable hitter. That's not to say Addison should get NO time.
    Bingo

    It wouldn't be the worst thing for this team if he forced himself into the lineup more often.

    Which part didnít?

    Nobody said anything about him playing today. He said Russell shouldnít play as much as 2 other guys. I donít think one home run changes that. Do you?

    Iím glad he homered though and never had any issue with him starting today (other than the issue I have with him being on the team). Heís a good matchup with Grays splits.

    So look, I'm not saying Yu Darvish is Brandon Webb with a 95MPH fastball, but I am saying he has a 100% GB rate.

    If Darvish figures it out, and Q can continue, and if 2nd base or CF can stop being a wasteland, this is going to be a fun second half. I don't remember Darvish looking better so far

    Watching Almora and Baez bat, you'd have to question Gray's reverse split record; however HRs were by Bryant and Russell, both right-handed hitters.
