In retrospect that was a good outing for Bard, re: Altuve

That’s a horrible thing to say. You need to just think it like me.

2002 will be posting in early May how we should have signed Altuve’s Venezuelan replacement in 2019. After he hits .290 and plays GG defense all after signing for $17,000……with picture of course.

So, it looks like Fish Boy will be facing Ohtani after-all. Still one game to go before that but I feel like it is inevitable ….

Well, if Shohei starts against Mexico then maybe not … But it would only be three days rest if they start him against Mexico… so maybe they save him for a final game.

I thought it was announced that Shohei cannot pitch the final game as it will affect his opening day status. I could be wrong but that is what I seem to recall.

They don’t need him. They’ve got Sasaki

Well, look at this quote from Shohei about it. It is from the piece you linked to :

“No, we haven’t spoken at all, so nothing’s decided yet,”

Nah, they’ve already said he won’t pitch again in the WBC.

Doubt it changes

Opening day is March 30th so his last tune up would be no later than this Thursday 3/24 at TD against the Friars to stay on a 5 day rest cycle

Urshela got back real quickly.

I think the day after Columbia was eliminated he was on the field for us.

It was only 5 stops on the light rail so what took him so long ?

Not to mention he lost a lot of weight in the offseason to play short so he probably wanted to get his reps in before Fletch and Rengifo get back

There was certainly pressue in the must win game against Colombia and I would say he came through in the clutch there, lol.

I would if I was a masochist.

Either way he’ll be the losing pitcher.
