Oops?

Just what I was going to say. Hope they keep the offensive momentum going to bail Wacha out.

Well…it appears we’re settled in. Still 4 innings to go. Great to see Peralta finally smash one! Love those back to backs!!!
So OK…momentum still going. Fingers crossed…

Just sorta’ wondering how we lucked out finding Piscotty. Does he ever NOT get on base, get a double, triple or HR? OK, maybe ONCE in a while. Hehehe.

So he brings in Choate who again doesn’t get the lefty. He needs to be left of the roster for post-season especially if giving a spot to Wainwright, The main worry I have is MM’s personalized decisions – will he trust Yadi or Waino or the Matts on their health? and will he stick with Choate who should be an ex major leaguer?

No kidding. Choate’s performances have been far less than reliable the past few months. I can’t imagine that we’re the only ones who feel he’s not a good option for the play-off roster.
Let’s just hope MM tells Choate that to make room for Waino? He just can’t include Choate in the final 24.
Gonna’ text the post-game radio show host…and ask what HE thinks about it. Will letcha’ know…
