Another day, another game. Maybe we could score today. Like more than once. More than twice too.

I expected that Manoah would be back from the Bereavement list by now. I hope he is ok.

Placed here for your consideration. I’d really like Lopez to get some at-bats. I’d also be interested to see Otto’s range in CF.

And the injury updates:

The team said that Nate Pearson will pitch again tomorrow and they will decide from there. It does sound like he could be up with the team next week.

I really want to see Kevin Smith playing every day, but we seem to hate the idea of giving the young guys a good chance to show what he can do.

We are glad you are here and hope you feel welcome. As a reminder, we have rules. Mostly it’s “don’t be terrible,” but these days, it’s also, “please debate about baseball and not the coronavirus or vaccines.” If a moderator asks you to stop doing something, please stop. If you want to discuss the rules, don’t do it in the thread. Email Tom instead. We also have a BBB Glossary full of GameThread lingo you can find here. You can Adopt-a-Jay here, and here’s a helpful tutorial on how to post images in the comments.
