Then Maddon’s sensibilities deserve to be attacked and defeated
baseball is not a contact sport
if this is a clean play then it means that desire for contact and potential harm to players (and Maddon’s sensibilities) is more important than the safety of the players
I don;t see how this play can be seen as anything except coaches trying to prove a point about “old timey” baseball being more important than the new rules and the safety of the players
he was ou, he slid late, he changed directions, he had a clear path not hitting the catcher, and the catcher had vacated the entire batting area at time of contact
suspend himMay 29, 2018 at 3:54 pm #54306

Rizzo doubled in his first atbat tonight in Pittsburgh. I assume the retaliation will be forthcoming soon.May 29, 2018 at 6:54 pm #54311
Ozuna k’s with runner on second.May 29, 2018 at 7:00 pm #54312
Bader goes BOOM! 1-0May 29, 2018 at 7:05 pm #54313
Got to get one more out of this at least. Bases Loaded and no one out.
Now one out with Wacha K.May 29, 2018 at 7:06 pm #54314
Front Row Amy at the game. I think that’s her.May 29, 2018 at 7:40 pm #54315
Davies is getting tattooed tonight.May 29, 2018 at 7:43 pm #54316
Ozuna doesn’t care if he’s fined for the sleeve.May 29, 2018 at 8:06 pm #54317
Wacha giving up some hard hit balls the last 2 inningsMay 29, 2018 at 8:09 pm #54318
1st at bat for Rizzo tomorrow should be HBP, then call it done. That’s the baseball way. I was glad to see MLB come out today and say he should have been called for interference, but disappointed they didn’t get it right last night.
Our guys tonight are looking good, but I won’t be singing Mabry’s praises for a while, maybe ever.
Pham late break on two flys to center. Concerning if he’s not seeing the ball.May 29, 2018 at 8:09 pm #54319
Hate to say it but with Pham’s offensive slump and watching him struggle in his jumps tonight but…maybe there’s something going on with his eyes?May 29, 2018 at 8:26 pm #54320
Wacha was cruising until getting into some trouble putting guys away here in the 6th. Should be his last inning no matter what.May 29, 2018 at 8:29 pm #54321
Maybe but they had no one up at the end of the 6th according to the broadcast.May 29, 2018 at 8:41 pm #54322
It’s a real shame that Kolten has hit so poorly this year, or that the lineup hasn’t been entire or clicking because his defense has been quite excellent to have at 2B.May 29, 2018 at 8:50 pm #54323
Brewers score one and now have two more in scoring position. One swing from being right back in it. Tuivalala can’t seem to hit the zone now.May 29, 2018 at 8:55 pm #54324
Tui got out of that Jam.May 29, 2018 at 8:55 pm #54325
Nice job by Tui to get the strikeout. 5-1 still…I’d yet like to see a few more insurance runs though.May 29, 2018 at 8:59 pm #54326
Pena launches a missile to make it 6-1 in the 8th.May 29, 2018 at 9:09 pm #54327
Good inning for Hicks there. If his slider can play like that…those strikeouts will start to pile up.May 29, 2018 at 9:24 pm #54329
That does it…Hicks with some punchouts the last two innings and the series is tied 1-1 with two good pitchers going tomorrow.May 29, 2018 at 9:24 pm #54330
Hicks matches his good 8th with an equally good 9th. Two more Ks, for a total of four. The slider was definitely the difference for him tonight…they couldn’t hit it or didn’t want to swing at it.

Was real glad to see Matheny leave Hicks in for two innings. He was warm and dealing, so you do not need to fall into this one-inning mantra with him.
Great win all around, although we need to get Pham going again. He seems to have lost some confidence, as he is letting pitches go that he could put a good swing to. He will bounce back, assuming he is not struggling to see the ball. Once he and Ozuna are both hitting, that will make a huge difference.May 29, 2018 at 9:51 pm #54336

How did you like using Hicks in the first place with a big lead, bikemike? (I say, “big lead” since it was a non-save situation.)
He is currently on pace to pitch in 78 games this season. That is Rosenthal/Siegrist/Maness territory.
Or if he is going to go longer in games, then it would seem that he should appear less often and someone else may become the primary eighth inning set up man.
