given his experience on the infield, if this is an actual problem now, it isn't likely to be one long-term.

Let's enjoy the amount of emotion Rich Hill attaches to every pitch.
Joe
8:18
Rich Hill curveball is easily my favorite pitch to watch
PHW
8:18
am i crazy for thinking the double lefty idea with hill and urias is great?
Craig Edwards
8:19
using two starting pitchers for relatively short bursts is probably a good idea regardless of handedness.
Dave Cameron
8:19
I still would have preferred Urias in game four and full-rest Kershaw tonight.
ChatzMcGee
8:20
Should the Dodgers have put Alex Wood on the playoff roster, or did Urias make him redundant?
Dave Cameron
8:20
Bullpen already a little heavy on lefties.
Bork
8:20
That curveball is more dreamy than Chase Utley
JC
8:21
Old man reflexes
Cale
8:21
It's a good thing you don't need your wrist to pitch
Jeremy
8:22
And this is the 'luck' part that people discount as part of a short-series playoffs
Drake
8:22
Was Justin Turner always this big?
Sean Dolinar
8:23
That slow-mo curve grip.
Craig Edwards
8:23
No, although few people stay the same size in their 30s compared to their mid-20s. The beard also helps/hurts in that regard.
Ben
8:23
what is Marlins Man's budget like?
Dave Cameron
8:23
At this point, he has to be sponsored or something, right?
Eric Y
8:24
I miss 2015 Bryce Harper :(
Warren
8:24
So Bryce Harper's zombie is only gonna be here until next season right?
Dave Cameron
8:24
He has to be hurt.
Craig Edwards
8:24
maybe he writes it off as an advertising expense
Ben
8:24
sponsored by the Marlins?
Dave Cameron
8:25
It's way cheaper than buying ad space on the behind the plate boards, right?
Sean Dolinar
8:25
Marlins Man works from his hotel room during the day, right?
Ned Yost
8:25
What does Justin Turner's free agent stock look like?
Craig Edwards
8:25
hearty
Bork

Marlins Man apparently worked in corporate law and had one major win then retired.
ChatzMcGee
8:26
These "scouting reports" have been terrible.
5 Run Homer
8:26
That curveball makes my pants feel tight
Craig Edwards
8:26
When we talk about Marlins Man, he wins.
Bork
8:27
We should give Marlins Man the Voldemort treatment.
Lord above
8:28
As a nationals fan, I hope espinosa just bunts for a hit every time, feel like it'd work at least once.
Craig Edwards

or have him swing for the fences 12 times and see what happens, which isn't far off from his general strategy.
Nodog
8:29
Marlins Man would be a Marlins fan, though, amirite? He's like the franchise personified -- desperate for attention but ultimately disappointing, self-interested, and annoying.
5 Run Homer
8:30
Why do you all hate Marlins Man? If I could I would be Marlins Man
Dave Cameron
8:30
Warning track power.

What's the difference between the gray and green lines on the win expectancy charts?
Sean Dolinar
8:31
Green is talent agnostic, gray has projections built in.
Aaron (UK)
8:31
he only swings for the fences if it's a ball. if it's a strike he leans in
Sean Dolinar
8:31
So green begins at 50% WE...gray will adjust for our Game Odds. This gets discounted as the game goes on.
