« I'll be so happy when Yadi retires. | Main | Chafin traded to A's. »

First things first. Chafin is gone. The first of how many?

The only thing that saved me this evening, after 4 hours of two teams that were competing to see who could leave the most runners on base, was the glorious ending. I couldn't have written a better script.

Bases loaded, tie game, bottom of the 9th and the Reds bring in psycho-wacko Amir Garrett, the barking clown who almost came to blows with Javy earlier this year. So naturally, Ross puts in Javy. They're mouthing off to each other before Amir even throws his first pitch. Javy looks FOCUSED... as sure he's gonna win this game as any player I've ever seen.

One pitch. One angry swing. Deep ball to CF... and it's OVER!!!

Amir Garrett...you just got PUNKED!!!

Hi Bud.
Get ready for more of the Chafin stuff.
And Javy's hit was AWESOME!
Then the big celebration on the victory trip to 1st base felt really great.
But there are guys I'd just prefer to not rile up, and Garrett is one.
I don't care about brawling as much as throwing at someone.
Hope to not see that.


I can pretty much guarantee that if "I'm weird" Garrett throws one tight, with even a hint of intent, he'll be tossed. AND he were to hit someone, he'd be suspended.

And I can also guarantee that you won't ever see him taking an at bat - at least not against the Cubs.

BTW...while I'm at it, when a pitcher is suspended, say for "5 games", it should be for as many games as would normally span 5 appearances. Use his appearance history YTD to make the determination.

Bud, I can't believe that I came out as a conservative voice on this Baez vs Garrett thing.
Tonight's game is about to start, and now I'm drooling over the prospect of Garrett coming in.
That look he had when he attacked the Pittsburgh dugout in '19... I just think he's got a gear that, once engaged, he can't control.
So of course I hope no one gets hurt, but this is some must watch baseball.
