Another golden sombrero today, against Houston.
I must admit, while Cora's strategy of giving players a LOOONG leash seems to pay off more often than not (e.g. Hunter Renfroe), it's depressing to see Bobby come up to the plate in a clutch situation and feel fairly certain he'll just strike out.
Incredibly, we seem to have the highest OPS in baseball despite carrying the offensive dead weight of Cordero, Renfroe, Dalbec, Gonzalez, and (to a lesser degree) K. Hernandez. I still can't wrap my mind around it, but I'll take it.
Sounds like this is the right decision, showing sensitivity to what's happening in the community. I was looking forward to the game today, but some things are more important.
That said ... Philando Castile, George Floyd, and now Daunte Wright .... what on earth is going on in Minnesota?
I know this is jumping to WAY too early of a judgment about Nesmith, but we might have been better off just keeping our three picks and selecting Bane, Pritchard, and Tillman. That would have been a home run of a draft.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
