David Wright is going to play for PSL today!!!! That is truly amazing. Unfortunately I think Gare nailed it – there are only three weeks left in the minor league season so if DW is going to give it a try he has to try now, there’s no more rope. I kind of expect the same as what we saw last year, where he gives it a try and shuts it down. I realllllly hope I am wrong, not just so we can have David Wright back but also I’d love to see Todd Block Frazier on the bench. I’m at war with Todd until he unblocks me. I mean even Matt Harvey never blocked me. Speaking of whom…
Matt Harvey looked pretty good Saturday night. Be sure to check out the always popular Harvey Days recap.
SLACKISH REACTION: Baseball is horrific. I lasted 8 innings. I was able too cope while I was ADDing on Harvey Days, the related blog post, the Mets game, twitter, and reading reddit…but once that slowed down to just watching Mets vs. Marlins my thumb hit that DVR button. The Mets lost in 11 innings but do you really even care? This is just garbage baseball, although I am kind of into Oswalt because I tend to root for the non-obvious players.
They should give Oswalt a turn every 5th day and let Vargas be an old style lonnnng relief guy. 6 man rotations are as open as everything else the millennials have introduced to baseball.
Todd Frazier, who is from New Jersey and once played in the LLWS raised his OPS to .669
NOT LINKING: Devin Mesarco is fighting for a 2019 starting job. Thanks AAIMBR!
