    Not too long ago he would have been allowed to finish. Dodgers had no clue against him.

    I just think he is a selfish ball player. He wants to cash in runs with his bat. He doesn't want to be standing on first. I
    think he tells himself that he is going to swing and doesn't allow other variables to dictate otherwise. That is why I always say to play him while he's hot but sit him the second he starts swinging like he's hot. Hero swings 4 lyfe.

    That kind of thinking doesn’t get you a top-5 draft pick.

    Btw, curious as to how dementia becomes an actual cause of death, I have found out that Tom Seaver had a body dementia, the same as Robin Williams had.
    Sad in both cases...

    Absolutely, but the matter still remains, that he has a tendency to take that defensive hack when the runners have the base stolen easily and it is less than a 2 strike count. Seager is also awful at that where he fouls something off with no intention to do anything else with it. Had he let Taylor get to 2B, he may have driven in the winning run instead of just advancing the runner.

    Couldn't agree more. Joc is exasperating. Takes some of the shittiest and best ABs you'll ever see.

    Also bugs the shit out of me when he trots out ground balls to the infield.

    I guess, but Smith also has a .950 OPS against RHP'ing, so it is not like you are dealing with a shitty hitter by any stretch. 1 out, runner on 3rd and a big slow guy that strikes out 25% of the time on deck. I know which route I would have gone, but what do I know.

    Exactly. We know that Smith puts the ball in the air more than your typical player, so for me, he's one of just 2-3 guys I'd want up in that scenario. Maybe the D-backs didn't realize that about him, but unlikely. There must've been something specific about that particular matchup that gave them confidence. Their loss... our gain.

    I am legit frustrated with his play this season, but I also DO NOT want to see him benched as he has shown to be one of the most clutch guys we have for the playoffs.

    Not just complications from Lewy body dementia, but COVID-19 too.
