    Freeman not being an all star is an absolute joke

    i know im not the sharpest of tools so i guess that's why it just occurred to me Soto turning down 440 mil doesn't bode well for us in our pursuit of our incumbent ss

    60-30 in the first half despite all the injuries

    Amazing.

    For comparison, we were 56-35 at the break last season

    We went 50-21 in the 2nd half and entered the all star break just 2 games back of the Giants.

    50-21 gained us one whole game in the standings. I still can't believe what the Giants did last season. Rooting against that team was one of the most maddening experiences ever

    The thing that really bugs me about Cody is that teams are playing such an extreme shift on him and he's not adjusting his game at all. I think it was last year or two years ago, ONE time I saw him lay down a bunt towards 3B and he made it to first without a throw. With his speed and from the left batting box, it would be so difficult for the one fielder on that side to throw him out. Do that even once per series and teams will have to change their defense alignment, opening up the rest of the field. Just is common sense. I don't understand why he doesn't do it. If his bunting skills are weak, then take extra BP and improve the skill. That's what professionals do.

    he did it all the time when he first came up and was pretty good at it
    https://www.ocregister.com/2018/05/...r-is-encouraged-to-bunt-but-not-to-sacrifice/
    makes no sense why he stopped or why Max can't do it
    its like leprosy to even talk about it on this team apparently
    what the actual fuck could be wrong w mixing it up and keeping your opponent guessing?

    the shift is far from his biggest problem. He has a career high strikeout rate, he's hitting balls hard less often, and also has a career low walk rate. He needs to focus on his bat path and swing before where he is aiming it into the shift.

    That flat footed, slappy two strike swing drives me nuts. This guy so mind fucked and has been for too long.

    By all reports he works his ass off in the cage but still produces little. Shame.

    Bea was OK...but old people are annoying, as we all know.
    But she was not on a Kim Ng level however...and Billy Jean soars over them all, who even inspired Michael Jackson, the king pedophile on a pedestal...

    technically Ng and BJ aren't women in todays woke world
    Ng being Asian doesn't qualify iirc that was ruled over by gascon
    BJ, well i'll let you be the judge [​IMG]
    there's a lot of people questioning whether or not she' s been seen in the same room as Elton so
    she still rules [​IMG]
    Hefley was also a black belt in taekwondo and was known to have quite a temper
