At least they’re consistent. Kap April 17, 2019 In my humble opinion, I think it’s time ti DFA Duke and replace him on the roster with either Krol or Reed Doc April 17, 2019 I think its time to DFA Duke and replace him on the roster with someone who can hit. Cover Duke’s partial innings with current relievers and no, Doug, I don’t mean Senzel,…yet. Doug Gray April 17, 2019 They only reason you shouldn’t mean Senzel yet is simply because he’s not healthy enough to play every day. But once that day is here, he should be the only answer to the question. Wes April 17, 2019 Might as well just run him out there now. Scooter too w bad groin and all. Hard to think this offense could get any worse. A.B. April 17, 2019 I know it’s early, but Jose Siri’s start to the season is troubling. Was hoping he’d take that next step. Gilbert Keith Chesterton April 17, 2019 India is picking up where he left off with his streaky inconsistency. In 2019 he is hitting 0.692 in 3 games, and is hitting 0.067 in the other 10 games. Last year he batted 0.667 in 6 games, and hit 0.159 over the other 38 games. Granted, as a kid who K’s almost 20% of the time in college, and barely hit over 0.300, it’s not like anybody suddenly expected him to become a good hitter when he faced better pitching and had to use a wooden bat, but he’s been an awful hitter in almost 90% of his minor league games so far.
