Vs. Pirates: 4-for-11, 3 HR's, 8 RBI'sBasically the entire Reds lineup has an OPS North of 1.000 because they faced an AAAA Team to start the season.
Make sure to track his stats vs Pirates and non-Pirates going forward
You can only imagine the meltdown around here if the Tribe got off to a start like the A's did. We are so fortunate to not have had the health issues that are dogging the A's, along with running into a buzzsaw like the Astros to start the season. It's never good to have a patch like the A's have experienced, but it's especially pronounced when it starts the season...but you know, this is how a team and an organization is tested. I prefer to judge a team in the aftermath of such a gloomy run, rather than by how things look when they are going smoothly.Biggest surprise so far is the A's, 36-24 last year, are 2-7 and have scored 25 runs in nine games; under three runs per game. Their team BA is .175. SS Elvis Andrus, age 32, is 3-for-32. Maybe they have a nice pitching prospect they would trade for Amed Rosario?
The A's team ERA is 6.56. Wow.
Really depends on the who is trying to steal.With deGrom on the mound, not a bad move, esp because nobody would expect it.
The stolen base attempt makes sense to me, too. The fact that he was thrown out doesn't change the wisdom of the attempt. Three things could happen, and two of them were good for the Mets.
But this board would have had a mini meltdown...lol.
On this forum, 90% never want to see a good hitter bunt, and every time a Tribe player is caught stealing its a dumb move.
