    Also, I have loved Carpenter's at bats so far. The guy has looked good in every at bat, and he hit a homerun off a tough lefty today. He might be just the spark they need with all the injuries. He's been on base in 4/8 at bats (including his HBP).
    His stance and approach completely remind me of Rizzo's. Low hands, bat bouncing on shoulder, hips pumping. (yes, I know).

    I agree Phoba, I was expecting him to look lost but his ABs look very controlled.

    I think Carpenter is going to be one of the better dumpster dive pickups from Cashbox. Now Ca$h needs to find another Clay Holmes to help fortify the bullie.

    Dusty is a good field manager. One of the old school managers that knows the damn game very well and doesnít need some stupid computer making out his lineups. I never liked him as a Dodger player back in the late 70s and very early 80s as we faced him 3X in the World Series(77,78,81) but as a manager I respect him.


    What has catapulted Houston is Justin Verlander. I think he will have 2nd half engine troubles. That arm has a lot of mileage on it.

    Cole needs to set the tone early and hopefully we can get him an early lead to take off the pressure. The good thing is we have a pretty rested bullie with King ready to go multiple inningsÖ..

    I gotta admit it. Iím starting to like Boone. He has grizzled some since 2018. He looks older now and not some school boy anymore. Back in 2018 he still looked like a ball player. Now he has a few LBs in the midsection that he has to cover up with his pullover and has a little weather beaten faceÖ.He is starting to resemble his old man with his looks now. His old man was a terrific catcher back in the late 70s.

    Where is this pitching coming from It is unreal. If not for that little 9th inning blip, they would have had 3 consecutive shutouts. WOW!!!! Taillon is really pitching well. All he does is throw strikes.

    Yes, but last night their pitching coughed up a 6-run lead to the O's.

    Taillon is pitching himself into a big contract. He's pitched like a number 2 all yr. If he stays healthy and can finish the yr with an ERA below 3.50, he;s going to get paid.

    5yrs 90m isn't unrealistic for him IMO

    sure feels that way doesn't it. How do you get injured when you haven't played and supposedly have covid badly?

    the timing just feels off

    Dallas Keuchal was DFA'd by the W Soxs

    Good luck to him and his next team.

    Oh, without question it will somewhere else.

    I do wonder if he might take a much cheaper deal to stay with us since he's basically remade his career with Blake and Cressey

    I rather he not. I just don't like his health history. Taillon isn't so good I'd overlook that. I think Michael King can easily take his spot, plus we also have sears, wesneski, schmidt and waldichuk. And after next season, Verlander, Ohtani, Nola, Snell, Glasnow, Castillo, Urias, Rodon, Lynn and other TORPS will also be available. It's going to be hard to pass up some of the pitchers in that crop. I'd have zero problem passing on Monty and Sevy.
