Naquin gets set up so easily.

High fastball first pitch changes his eye level.

Every other player and coach or avid fan realizes a curveball is coming next, begging him to pound it into the ground....

What does Naquin do? Indulges the off-speed, pounds it into the ground to end the inning.


Sigh.

2-0 count to Ramirez, everyone in the park knows the get-me-over fastball is coming

Ramirez pounds it directly into the turf.

Frankie, Santana, Mercado, Perez, Luplow are our only bats right now.

Bring up Daniel Johnson and Bobby Bradley.
My question id whst are they waiting for? Its June. Bauers has killed how many rallys this year? I cant for the life of me why we are staying the course with some of these guys.

I began considering this scenario recently, although I am skeptical that the organization would go through with it because they’re concerned with how Jose would handle it. Something has to give though since it’s clear that no one has any other answers at this point.
They did it with Salazar. It didn't work but at least it stopped him from killing the team.

Its not like we are facing Justin Verlander today either. Desclafani has been pretty much garbage this year.
