Red Sox at Astros, 8/1/22

Merry Yordanmas!

2B Altuve
1B Gurriel
DH Alvarez
3B Diaz
RF Tucker
SS Pena
LF McCormick
CF Meyers
C Maldonado

P Garcia

Since it’s Yordanmas, is it fitting that there’s an Angel behind the plate?

Garcia 1-2-3

Altuve drills the first pitch right at the 3b
Gurriel hits his first pitch off the top of the RF wall for a double
Yordan smacks his first pitch into the shift, Yuli to third
Diaz grounds to third on 2-1

End 1, 0-0

I hope everyone remembered to pre-mute the tv before tuning in

Top 2:
JD flies to RF
Arroyo flies to RF
Cordero K swinging on high and outside

So we have not traded Garcia or Urquidy yet. Is that tomorrow?

I doubt either gets moved now. Unless Josh Bell is still in play

A little 2 out noise from Chas and Jake.

I blinked and missed two outs
Chas walks
Jake actually makes solid contact! Liner through the left side for a single, Chas holds at second
Maldonado K swinging at one in the dirt

End 2, 0-0

One of these innings, a 2-out hit with RISP would be nice

Tucker rolled over and Peña had a deep F8.

For a second I thought Pena got more of that ball than he did

Which dugout is our new C in?

Neither, he’s not allowed there until the trade is approved by mlb and he’s added to the roster.

I’m just throwing this out because I have no real idea how to value things and I’m curious: would the Nats trade Soto for a package of Tucker and one of Urquidy/Garcia/Javier and a prospect? I realize it would be risky because there’s no guarantee of keeping Soto after next year (but maybe that’s the case with Tucker, too, I don’t know).

Dalbec doubles on a 2-2 hanger that could have ended up in the Woodlands

Garcia got lucky there

The Nats response would be LOLNOPE


We could try going Ditka and trading them the first 10 rounds of this past draft
