Great stuff. It felt like Kyle Tucker killed us this year but I hadn’t looked at the real numbers.

Considering the 15-4 beatdown in the season series I figured there would be plenty of A’s on the list.

Bassit is definitely our anti-Cy, and I can’t disagree with Haniger.

Between a kick to the crotch and kneecapping, you can walk almost normal a day after the kick to the crotch if you get to pick between the two…
