    All because some scrub can't throw strikes.

    JT crowds the plate so I'm shocked it hasn't happened before this. Logan definitely going to be at 3rd but I think it'll be a platoon with Kike and Chase at 2nd. Austin can also play 2nd and Kyle Farmer can back up Yaz or because Kike platoons at 2nd it opens up a spot for an OF'er. Who knows but dammit this doesn't bode well.

    I don't think it's so much that he crowds the plate as much as his high leg kick makes it difficult to avoid pitches boring in on him. With that leg kick, it makes it almost impossible to turn his shoulder inward to avoid pitches like last night's.

    The 2018 demon takes shape before our eyes...another integral part of the team makeup suffers a huge blow.

    Next man up.
    Have to be able to successfully replace 33-34 year olds - guys that are 5-6 years out of their physical prime and are likely to miss time during the season - to be a winner in this era.

    Its funny how people are losing their lunch over a guy breaking his wrist in spring training.
    Oh noes the season is lost!
    Its a wrist, he didn't break his leg. That shit heals and then gets taped up stiff.
    Or god forbid tear a hamstring or a tendon in his knee.

    It was a shock so there's this thing called human emotion. Not saying all is lost but he's our glue, dude and it's a wrist on a hitter so that's no small thing and you know he'll get hit there again. Being an old guy myself I know my recovery time is extending every time I get hurt so there's that point and I know he's not ancient but come on now. Being a baseball fan of many many years I've seen seasons after WS appearances get derailed by injuries so while I'm not scared that this will doom us it's not a good sign. There was good news today though that he won't need surgery so fingers crossed that he'll come back earlier.

    Justin Turner is the same age that Andre Ethier was when he broke his leg... Once you're into your mid-30's, 100% recovery is no sure thing.

    Human emotion lol.
    We find too many things to be overemotional about.
    Human emotion would be caring about the human aspect.
    We dont.
    We care about the baseball impact.
    And then become schoolgirls.

    Touche but you're going to get old fast my friend. It's a kids game played and viewed by men and it keeps me active anyway.

    That already happened when I was a kid.
    Then as an adult I tried being young again.
    I realized being old was my cup of tea.
    Now get on my lawn!
