Has McCormick become the No. 1 centerfielder?

Sure seems that way. He’s been hitting well lately, Jake hasn’t, and Jake’s arm isn’t what it used to be pre-injury.

Really good lineup, Dusty. Keep it up!

Yes Chas is clearly the best option.

Jake ain’t right and like won’t be right this season.

Chas is hot also. It is the correct decision.

ETA: I don’t know why they do not send Meyers to AAA so he can hit every day. He is a bit better defender than Chas, but Chas is good in CF also, and Dubon is a decent backup. Jake is wasting a roster spot, imo. As has been said, something still is wrong. I thought they might even consider Marisnick.

Tarp on the field in Atlanta. Small chance of light showers during the game.

Sounds like a conspiracy to me. Remember Astros didn’t get BP their first game at Truist either.

They’re worn out from yesterday anyway.

Mosquitos can fuck off.

ETA: may be the wrong thread but I stand by it.


I wish this too

It may be something that only time can heal, but right now Meyers is not one of the best 13 position player options.

Altuve looks like he’s experiencing discomfort.

If we still had Siri, I’m pretty sure he’d be up now and Meyers would be back in Sugarland.

Please no.

Maybe his pregame meal was backing up.


Tonight will tell us more about McCullers.

Hope there are not a lot more 3-0 counts.

Good thing I’m used to disappointment.
