It is a beautiful sunny Saturday and I am going to be outside as soon as I finish this. Lloyd's lineup today features some prominent " " going on in the defensive assignments. Dustin Ackley has either fallen out of favor or is simply being given some more time to work on whatever has seen his hot start evaporate into a into a wispy vapor of suck.
Taijuan Walker looks to build on his best start of the season, also against these same Astros. The team badly needs to salvage at least a game in this series. The Astros 16-7 start may not be sustainable but they don't have to be a true talent 16-7 team to maintain the lead they've already built that's not how it works gamblers fallacy etc. etc.
Here's to hoping the offense figures out that home runs with runners on base count for extra runs, a strong start from our young starter and that our evening alcohol is celebratory.
