New strategy: loan Grichuk to another team for the first four months of every season.

Too good of a pitch to Urshela with 2 strikes.

The size of John Schneider's head is nothing less than you would expect if you subscribe to the Germanic stereotype. I mean, heavens to goodness, his hat must have been custom made and cost 3x the price based on material alone.

So, all that power Bo had that was classified as 'raw', because everyone knew it was coming, but hadn't arrived when he was in the minors? Apparently they handed it to him when he got off the plane from Buffalo.

We may need to find an entire new rotation next year. But the offense is looking better, anyway.

Not sure Rivera stayed in the 3rd base coach box on that last scoring play! LOL

With a name like that, poor Godley has a lot to live up to.

We should be entertaining in an often infuriating sort of way next year, and then genuinely competitive thereafter. Better times are a-coming.

Bo was like 'might as well continue the doubles streak too.'
