He has to stay short with the stride to stay on balance and avoid getting off balance/susceptible to outside breaking stuff.

It's one thing to throw pitches that are called balls, but right now Volquez's pitches that are balls are no where close to being strikes.

Re: Salvy having a tough series - being a righty and facing these three guys back-to-back-to-back can't be fun. Salazar, Carrasco and Kluber are nasty.

Re: Rotation ... gotta get this together, or they're going to have to make a deadline move.

Re: Esky... he's a better hitter than Colon and much more dangerous in that leadoff spot. And having Gordon in the leadoff rather than hitting 5th or 6th does shorten the lineup a lot. As does Dyson/Orlando vs. Rios.

Esky is a career .264, .300, .349 guy. Granted he was much better than that last year, but he was also much worse two years ago. Losing Esky's defense hurts more than his offense. The drop on offense isn't as severe.

I'd be curious to see what Wade's advanced stats say, like the contact rate against him. He's been unstoppable, but it just feels like he's trying to pitch to contact more this year. He's not walking anyone, just using his stuff and going right after guys. If they hit it, they hit it.

Let's say the Yankees were offered a choice on each player in our bullpen. Not pick the best, but they have a choice to take that one player and send one of theirs down. Are there any they wouldn't take right now?

It's gonna be fun when we play them. The back end of their bullpen has been as good as ours. Betances and Miller are putting up sick numbers so far, I don't think either of them have allowed a run either. Whoever's leading after 6 is going to win every night.

The Astros were down 2 in the 9th and have scored 3 off Huston Street and are still batting. They are playing well. Royals would've passed them for best record in the AL if they lose.

The Royals are the perfect storm for the fans right now. Homegrown talent, most fun/exciting to watch in baseball, city starved beyond all comprehension by 29 years of crap baseball, Chiefs in kind of a malaise and fans bored with their mediocrity. It's like when the Chiefs finally got good in the late 90s. So much fun.
