Elvis gets revenge early.

Foulkelore

Extended batting practice for the boys.

I miss that store.

Can’t complain about that inning too much.

Let’s go Yanks meanwhile!

Zavala is not a good baserunner at all.

Moncada hammering a lefty is really nice to see!

Tip of the cap to Yoan

Joliet Orange Sox

Some of Moncada’s night is luck evening out just like with most players. The first homer would have gone out of 16/30 MLB parks and the second homer would have gone out of 13/30 MLB parks. Moncada has had some long outs that would have gone out of more than 20/30 MLB parks.

(BTW, Abreu’s long single in the 2nd inning would have gone out of 10/30 MLB parks.)

Happy to see the Sox beating up on an A’s team that just isn’t very good.

This is what is known as “cruising”

#MUTEJASON …”Oh Slider Slide” banter…

I mute him all the time

For all of the constant complaining about Eloy, he’s been pretty awesome this season.

I can see the boys are excited about the news of Tony coming back.

calcetinesblancos

“We better wrap this up asap.”

Foulkelore

Run it up, Miguel. Leave no doubt.

Why play the infield in when you’re down by 8?

Foulkelore

Maybe Mark Kotsay is as good of a manager as he was replacing Jim Thome.

Right Size Wrong Shape

Kotsay is like one of those middle school basketball coaches who are down by 30 with 10 seconds left, and they call time out to work on their new out of bounds play.

So basically the MLB Matt Nagy?

Foulkelore

We also would have accepted Jim Boylen.

Yoan has 4 more innings to get that ring from Jerry.

Nick Allen plays a good SS but I liked him better in that Rookie of the Year movie.

Foulkelore

Might as well pull Cease at 87 pitches right? Save some bullets on a rare night when you can.

I’d like to see Joe Kelly try to throw as many pitches down the middle of the plate for as long as possible and just see what happens.

So…I know Elvis got the headline post today, but I think Romy is having a better audition for 2023 2B.

Right Size Wrong Shape

He’s got a pretty easy power swing. I like him.

Jason basically just said Tony shouldn’t come back without directly saying it. Talked about all the positive vibes Cairo brings to the clubhouse

Foulkelore

Yep, he mentioned Cairo’s “energy” and “connectivity” with both the players and coaches, and with the way he was saying it, he was obviously contrasting to Tony.

Foulkelore

Neuse is throwing pitches in the low 40s.

I understand position players pitching sometimes, but they should at least try. This is a sham.

Joliet Orange Sox

I’m really glad Moncada had the big night wearing the yellow shoes, yellow batting gloves, and yellow arm band. I work with a Moncada-hater and there’s nothing he hates more than the yellow shoes and batting gloves (well maybe the Moncada music video).

Foulkelore

I would have lost money betting on him hating the chains the most. That’s pretty typical too.

Right Size Wrong Shape

Ah bet he cain’t even speak English!
