    I love how we are the only team in the league who can’t hit in cold weather

    Lead off double. Nothing to show for it. Nice at bats by Baez and Cabrera.

    Not going to overreact about 1 of 162 games, but man I haven't seen a play in baseball go so poorly since I was playing little league in elementary school.

    If we made Greene scoot up to the plate with one of those little carts, he would still be our fourth best hitter.

    These guys can’t hit and their fielding might be even worse than their bats.

    They interviewed Avila on radio. He was blaming the injuries to Manning, Mize, and Greene. Said these were top 50 prospects per MLB pipeline that they were banking on to win. Not concerns yet .

    If Fadeo looks good in his next start, does he get called up? I assume it’s very unlikely, and that Peralta is next man up, but regardless we gotta get someone, anyone really, to replace Alexander in the rotation.

    2 SB - worst in league
    8 HR - worst in league
    21 2B - 2nd worst in league
    3.22 R/G - 5th worst in league (13 run game most likely avoids last place)
    8 DP turned - worst in league
    127 SOs (Pitching) - worst in league
    6-13 record - 5th worst in league

    avila still collecting a paycheck

    Thought I could wait until may, but Fuck Avila. Team is worse through 20 games than they were last year.

    The first round pitchers he was banking on are injured, and they sucked before that anyways.

    lineup is filled with marginal players, who had a decent season last year. Our DH just hits singles, Candelario/Schoop blow. Unfortunately Greene won’t save this lineup.

    I thought for sure Baddoo would get the boot tomorrow when rosters are trimmed down, but not if Grossman hits the IL.

    Just checked in on how Avila’s three big international signings are going. Yikes

    • Santana hitting .153 with a 521 ops.
    • Campos hitting .254 with a 620 ops.
    • Sequera hitting .194 with 505 ops
