Zavala stole that strike three.

Adam Frazier to the Padres


For what looks like their number 5 prospect and two other unranked guys. I donโ€™t know what would be more disappointing – we werenโ€™t in on Frazier, or we couldnโ€™t beat that deal. We better get Escobar.


I’m relieved that the Sox did not get him and overpay, as well as have him become yet another mediocre solution in RF next year. A rental like Escobar for way less in prospect cost makes more sense.


Gotta love baseball: Vaughn hitting .338/.368/.613 the last month hits into a double play for their only outs, and Zavala and Lynn have RBI hits.

Whoever had Zabala and Lynn with the picks to click, can cash in now


Of course I had Zavala. I definitely did not voice displeasure in having two pitchers hitting in the lineup back-to-back tonight. No, there’s no need for you to double-check this.


You canโ€™t play Sheets in right …it is silly

Root Cause

I think he has been playing in RF. They had him play in about 10 games in Charlotte planning for it. I agree it that it’s silly yet that is about 10 more games than Vaughn had..
Someone correct me if I am wrong.

As Cirensica

Why do we have Hamilton and Engel. Goodwin shouldn’t be in CF in the 7th with a small lead


Better late than never.


Sheets was due up. I think the idea was to keep him in for that inning before making the switch to Hamilton with Goodwin in RF.
