    9-1/2 games ahead. Not even the storied '69 you know who's got past 8-1/2. Getting healthy, big guys returning soon, I'm breathing easy. OK, a tweak here and there before August to put the cherry on top.
    If it's up, put it down. If it's down, put it up.

      The pitching matchups for this weekend’s series against the Brewers are insane. Will be a good test.

      For those without Twitter:

      RHP Freddy Peralta (7-3, 2.39) vs. RHP Lucas Giolito (8-6, 3.90)
      RHP Corbin Burnes (5-4, 2.16) vs. LHP Carlos Rodon (8-3, 2.14)
      RHP Brandon Woodruff (7-4, 2.04) vs. RHP Lance Lynn (9-3, 1.94)

      Lucas Giolito has the highest ERA of any starter going in the series by more than 1.5 runs!

          Should be a tough series. Burnes and Woodruff and low key two of the best pitchers in baseball. I also usually feel like AL teams are at a bigger disadvantage in an NL park since we lose the DH and our pitchers never bat. We'll also be seeing a couple old friends in Avisail Garcia and Omar Narvaez who are both having very nice seasons in Milwaukee.

            Nice job by Cease pitching over his catcher’s inability to catch the ball.

              Curious why no Sheets with a RHP on the mound. Seems a no-brainer to have him DH over Burger unless Pineda has reverse splits. Heck Goodwin in CF over Hamilton too.

              Anyone got an answer?

                Burger actually has reverse splits, too. In admittedly very few MLB ABs, he so far has struggled against LHP and pounded RHP.

                  Cease doesn’t have his best stuff tonight. But he’s still had some good moments. Not sure if he goes out for the sixth inning. Our hitters need to score some runs.

                      Heuer got two quick outs and then fell apart to give up three runs before securing the third out.

                          Never mind. Houston just tied it at 4.

                            Once again, this **** bullpen turns a close game into a not-so-close game.
