    O'Grady got his first major league HR last night in a pinch hit appearance.

    Bullpen blows another game. Who was it this time? Probably Lorenzen or Garrett since it was the 8th inning.

    I was sleeping by then. According to the box score, I believe it was Garrett because he got credit for the blown save and loss.

    Way to short-arm the first one. Need to use your legs more.

    Can we find a way to have @nkypete come up with a false positive test and have to sit out all of the 2020 season?

    Gray had a no hitter going and in the 7th inning, he hits a batter, walks a batter and then gives up a Home Run to a rookie that has been in the big leagues for about a week. Our staff don't realize what walks will do. Welsh said last night that he believes pitchers don't care about walks anymore. He may be right.

    I didn't get to see the broadcast last night, so don't have any context to go with that statement, but...I can see where he has a point. Now, that being said, there's still going to be the "politically correct" statement to the contrary. But, heck, wasn't it just last year that Robert Stephenson said walks were "a part of his game"? Stupid, I know. But if they're worried so much about giving up a homer, a walk is "minor" in their mind. It comes down to pitchers being aggressive vs. passive. Too many are focused on what not to do (give up the homer) than they are on being focused on getting the batter out.
