Shelton just loves the lefty/righty matchups when the Bucs are hitting, but he could care less when the opposing team is hitting.
Drives me nuts. Sabermetrics often overlooks the most obvious stat which is who has been playing good that day, or the last few days etc.
Lefties were slugging like .700 off the guy.
But VanMeter?! Delay would have had a better chance swinging left handed.

That blows

Giants walk it off on a two run homer with one out in the bottom of the 9th.

Crowe has been less than impressive for awhile now.

This team is an utter mess

If van meter gives Cruz a solid throw maybe we are looking at a game tieing hr instead of a walk off.

The Red Sox color guy said what we are putting on the field is pathetic.Tell us something we don’t know.You need to spend money and and we refuse to do it.So other people see it as well.But never heard a person being so blunt about it.

Keller might have left with an injury.Dejong has been solid in relief.

He is spot on and our cheap owner should have to watch this over and over.But it still wouldn’t resonate with him.

We were in good company yesterday at least. The Mets, Yankees, Astros and Dodgers all lost last night too.
