  1. They’re hitting like they want a chance at a walkoff now.
  2. These conspicuous, ugly Nike logos on the jerseys are one of the worst things to ever happen to MLB. And Yamamoto’s poor pitch location is the worst thing to happen to my day.
  3. Elieser is getting pretty close to doing a thing through 4/7 of this game.
  4. That Tim Spooneyboxberger/Ian Kinsler combo appears to be pretty deadly. We may have reached a simple equation of “No Conley = Win”, which is something I’m certain Mattingly will still manage to screw up.
  5. There was one swing in particular that looked really hesitant and ugly, and it was on that hands-high four-seam. I forget the count. I do think most of Brinson’s issues have been psychological because he’s clearly capable. I’ve admittedly been a huge cheerleader of his.
  6. I don’t think Brinson looked lost at all. He worked a couple of counts and made decent contact on the grounder to third. He didn’t get a hit. That happens occasionally in baseball. Don’t read into it until you have to. It was his first Major League game in some time.
  7. Eh, don’t sweat it. They’ve already barreled through quite a bit of adversity so far.
  8. These Orioles seem like a pretty cool team. I hope things go reasonably well for them when they’re not playing the Marlins.
  9. And Monte avoids the golden sombrero in his debut!
  10. Exactly zero people would’ve blamed Donnie for leaving a starter with a 2-hit shutout and 7 Ks in for the sixth with 61 pitches. What are you talking about?
  11. That remains to be seen. This isn’t an isolated incident. Mattingly’s premature starter-pulling has probably cost the Marlins at least 20 wins over his tenure.
  12. Should’ve taken him out after the first, then, just to be safe. He’s a starter. He had 61 pitches through 5 innings and they only had a three-run lead going to the bottom of the sixth. It only looks like an acceptable decision to pull him because it happened to not result in disaster.
  13. Yeah, this is Mattingly’s ninth decade of MLB and he still doesn’t know how different types of pitchers are supposed to be utilized.
  14. Not crazy about this lineup, but it’s fairly solid under the circumstances. Obviously looking forward to Monte’s debut.
  15. There was no better way to convey that you can’t imagine thinking about anybody but yourself, lol. Perhaps he’s concerned about spreading the virus to other people in his life and doesn’t want to be responsible for getting other people sick, possibly fatally.
  16. Kept ‘em under 19 runs. Moral victories do exist. Edit: Wrong postgame thread.
  17. Is it acceptable to restart the “fire Mattingly” campaign yet?
