Cespedes, it’s a contract year. Don’t be aloof. I don’t think it’s a real problem. The unearned run was the difference.
How long until Wright gets moved down in the lineup? A week? A month?
The Royals are a step faster than the Mets and it keeps showing. I can’t explain why that gets so EXPOSED every time we play them. I think it’s kind of a rock-paper-scissor duel between elite teams. The Royals’ best attributes (speed, defense) are our worst features as a team. Our skills (fireballs) matched up better against the Cubs’ young hitters, that’s for sure. I might be overthinking it. Volquez pitched well.
Our middle infield looked competent today. Turning routine double plays WOW!
Harvey wasn’t perfect but he was great. His line doesn’t do his night justice.
One last thing:
Just go 50-50 against the good teams and bury the bad teams. Win the division and then I like our staff against anyone in the postaeason.
