This …. this is nice.  


I like seeing regular reports of extra-base hits and walks from Basabe and Adolfo.


Call has rebounded nicely after a slow start.


When will the FO make a decision on whether or not Adolfo needs surgery? I seem to recall a mid-June timeline. 

The guys on the Dash podcast seem to think he will DH all year.

Not sure if this was reported anywhere, but looks like dunning got the bump to AA. Also just noticed puckett hasnt been pitching. Anyone know if he’s injured?
