I’m a big Jansen booster, but I think he will be dealt in the off-season.

I'm assuming Springer can't even build up the strength to play baseball at all two days in a row if he's not hitting for Tapia there. Not sure why he's still on the active roster at this point.

Any reason we didn’t send Merrifield on pitch #1? And we would be tied now

It's hard to steal on a guy who throws 103.

Who’s throwing more balls than strikes. 4mph means nothing in a steal.

Well that was a bad luck way to end that.

That Duran guy makes Pearson look silly.
Seems to be able to throw that heat easily. They somehow got that guy from Arizona.

It's also harder to steal on a ball, for what it's worth. Worst pitch to run on is a hard fastball outside to a RHH, which Duran throws plenty of.

Tapia is an atrocious defensive OF.

Tapia needs to catch that ball...

What even qualifies him as an OF? He's terrible at tracking the ball and he has a terrible arm. Literally any player could play OF at that level.

Regardless Kirk should be pinch hitting for Tapia, not Espinal. The constant disrespect on Espinal by these Jays managers. He was an all star ffs

OK. You were banking on a ball. Outside.

I don’t think that’s how you manage.

Who cares about the jump, the wind up, the catcher, the situation…

Anyway it was a ball in the dirt – – – – outside!

Can't hit, can't field, doesn't run much...
