Calling someone named August September is the equivalent of calling a Mike Mark on purpose. Real douchy.

Mazara or A.J. Reed, rest of year?
august fagerstrom

Reed, probably because he has a clearer path to playing time

There has to be some additional value to having guys like Napoli and Santana back to back seeing 5+ pitches every at bad, right? While the ceiling for the Indians offense seems to be average, when putting this many guys together who see a lot of pitches and work the count could it actually make the lineup better?

yeah, this is something I talked about on the radio the other day. It's been really interesting watching those two work consecutive at-bats so far. The real interesting part of the equation IMO is Yan Gomes batting after them, who is one of the most aggressive swingers in baseball. I do wonder what kind of effect that could have, and if it's something that could be quantified

One time you shared a Lil Ugly Mane tape. You're the man

though I might argue in this scenario it's Lil Ugly Mane who is the man
or mane

Assuming White keeps up something similar what he's shown in Houston and in the minors, could you see him moving to 3B when the Astros are ready to call up Reed?
august fagerstrom
1:35
no
from what I understand, the glove simply isn't playable at 3B

Alright! I've got another busy day of "getting ready to move" stuff. Gotta run. Thanks for chatting and apologize for the delay.
peace
