Nope.

Why is Guacamole so much more expensive than other dips?
Dave Cameron
9:47
Avocados are not cheap.
Matt

Any examples of a reverse JT? Power hitter who gained contact skills to become elite? I seem to remember Miggy was a 270 hitter in 03 but that could have just been adjustments
Dave Cameron
9:47
Miggy's always made good contact. I think Mike Schmidt cut his strikeout rate in half.
Bubba
9:48
Kris Bryant made more contact too, although he struck out a lot only for one season.
Dave Cameron
9:48
Yeah, and he was pretty good even as high K guy.
Erik
9:49
What separates the guys who can make such big adjustments from the guys who can't? Doesn't everyone try to hit for more contact or more power all the time?
Craig Edwards
9:49
Beltre lowered his k-rate as well, although it was never very high.
Dave Cameron
9:49
If we could answer that question, we'd be running a team.

9:50
That was so far out!
Strike Thief!
9:50
If the nats win is Lobaton their MVP for pillaging the strike zone like he is?
Alex Reinhart
9:51
How huge is this strikezone tonight
Dave Cameron
9:51
It's only occasionally huge. Was small early.
JC
9:52
Surprised Reddick didn't try and take the extra base there
mtsw
9:52
bunt here?
Dave Cameron
9:52
No.
Well, Actually...
9:52
Never Bunt. Hit Dingers.
mtsw
9:53
shoulda bunted
ethn
9:53
With Grandal hitting like this, bunt 100 times out of 100
Dave Cameron
9:54
Recency bias.
Cracker Jack
9:54
MLB doing a solid job displaying those hoodies. Everyone looks comfortable af.
Sean Dolinar
9:54
They are well worth the money.
Craig Edwards
9:54
bunting here would actually be worse than normal given Scherzer's likelihood of striking out the next hitter.
Chuckb
9:55
Definitely good not to save Ethier.
5 Run Homer
9:55
Max Scherzer is like, really good
mtsw
9:56
just sitting here watching my "sometimes you should bunt" stance be vindicated
HappyFunBall
9:56
Scherzer is pitching low he's not expecting his team to score any more runs
Alex Reinhart
9:57
"You gotta like this move" - Harold Reynolds -- are there any managers that don't make this move?
Dave Cameron
9:57
Nope.
Craig Edwards
9:57
unless there's something wrong with the data, statcast is saying the expected batting average on lobaton's at bat last inning was 1.000.
Dave Cameron
9:57
Seems like a data error.
Ampersand
9:58
Big pitch time
S
9:58
Why is Toronto's crowd so much more exciting than everyone else?
Sean Dolinar
9:58
Because of that 7th inning last year. Also large dome stadium and a fan-base that doesn't have playoff fatigue yet.
aj
9:59
im rooting for scherzer just because i really like seeing him
Chuckb
9:59
That sound you hear is my brother, the Dodger fan, cursing.
Dave Cameron
10:00
Scherzer is good.
5 Run Homer
10:01
*sad trombone*
Tim
10:01
86 pitches now. How deep can Scherzer go in this one?
