    Nobody to look at but yourself, Davey.
    You had to wait until there was no margin for error
    Your weapons suck, sure. But you let Kelly stay in far too long

    Veteran catchers do what Russell Martin just did. Protect the pitcher on a HBP. Good shit Russ

    Subtle moments that nobody notices...

    What's to protect?
    Did Kinsler (or anyone for that matter) honestly think Garcia would hit him on purpose with 2 strikes and the bases loaded?

    You always check as a catcher. Russ did that. The situation doesn’t matter. You just do it and he did . Watch it. Subtle but but there.

    Corey Seager is a disaster.

    I was going to say this umpire sucks, but it's pretty impressive how he can do home plate and first base at the same time

    22-13. Cool.

    Max and Kike need to start hitting RHP. Pretty dismal OPS for Max if he is going to play 1B and bat in the middle of the order. Striking out more and walking less than 2018. Needs to lay off shit pitches. He looks to be hitting better in general, though, with two big swings this series. That was a bomb.

    Seager is lost. Give him some time off. Can't even field.

    I am very happy that Max and Alex continue to beat the crap out of LHP. Maybe now Dave will stop platooning them.

    Beating Yates two days in a row is no small task.

    Baez got probably the most important three outs of the game.

    Yates isn't anything special, he just had a good month

    Another truly great comeback victory without our juggernaut in the lineup. It speaks volumes, imo, that we can come back and still get some more as needed when tied.
    Apropos that, though, is an overwhelming fog of utter failure when Kelly comes in. Without a word of sarcasm or attempt at DSP levity, it is my firm belief the Kelly is simply unusable.
    Period.
    Unusable.
    I know he'll pitch all year, because of his ridiculous salary, but should he maintain this pace, is it possible he may be the worst of all time ? Truly cringeworthy.
    I don't know what the options are for a veteran like him for the team to attempt correcting his simply awful performances, but he should not be used in a tie game or close score. It's a boatload of fucktard genius money that went his way, but that is all he's good for. Right now anyway.

    That Kinsler drive down the LF line that landed inches foul probably would have cleared the bases.

    Don't even care a little bit how you get them, especially in division.

    We'll need a full measure of good luck with this BP, no doubt.
    And more and more considering the inept level of umpiring teams are subject to.
    It changes what competiton is between teams...slowly, but inevitably and unstoppable (like tectonic plates), without some modifications being instituted.
    And baseball, in general, is a game where luck plays a pivotal role in the outcome.
