    If Miggy is up, play him every game. Ford should not be in there. Not sure what they thinking is here. How much does Ford need to fail at the plate before he stops getting chances? Ford was never a prospect. He’s filler.

      He just misplayed a bunt at 1st. He’s worthless. Where’s Voit? Where’s Miggy? I’m tired of a lineup full of .150 hitters.

    How in the world is Wade still on this roster?

    Would it have killed Cashman to get any infield depth last offseason?

      This is another L, Matt. Even a good outing from Kluber can’t save it. Scherzer will carve up this weak lineup like a Christmas goose. Judge looks lost. Stanton can only do so much. The pen is regressing to the mean. Boone has no clue how to fire up this club so you’ll just see another lifeless loss.

  3. Bubba Crosby's Left Cleat

    Three dudes over an 82 OPS+ in here. Four if you somehow think Higgy outhitting Judge is real.

  4. Zach

    That might be the worst lineup Scherzer has ever faced. It’s one thing for Boone to punt a game, but this is easy no-hitter material.
