    Game7 puts a squeeze on that doesn’t work.

    Fried had great control last night. His off-speed stuff is very good.

    Donaldson has looked very good defensively but missed a couple absolute hangers last night.

    Donaldson might be pressing to hit a dinger a little too much.

    Folty with 5 innings of pain free, no-hit pitching in AAA is very encouraging. One more start down there and should be up in 10 days.

    Fried's curveball was just absolutely sick last night. I really like him, just hope he can stay healthy and keep the blisters away.

    The curve followed by 96 on the black is a tough combo to hit.

    Fastball has good velocity but is really flat. It obviously works just fine when he is able to put it exactly where he wants combined with his plus off-speed offerings.

    Gausman looked really good after the first two batters.

    Nice win last night in Colorado. Coors Field has been historically unkind to us over the years but last season seems to have changed that, hopefully they keep it rolling tonight!

    Impressed with Dansby thus far. Dude seems to have figured it out. Overall I'm impressed with how many runs we're scoring (outside f the Philly series.) Looks like that trend will have to continue to prop up the pitching staff.

    Today's game in Colorado has already been postponed.

    We haven't announced all starters for 4 game series against Mets but assuming Gausman tonight and Julio, Newk, Fried in that order with Wright out of the pen. Speculation is Folty will be activated in game 1 of the DBacks series.

    Sounds like AA just worked over Ozzie's agent too.

    Ozzie gets 7 years for $35 million + 2 options at and additional $5 million each. 9 years, $45 million max value. Good work AA.

    The White Sox extended Eloy Jimenez 6/$43 and he never played a game, let alone put up a 3.8 WAR season last year.

    This is what Curt Flood fought for - the right of the players to make win/win deals. How much of a win for each side TBD.

    Other execs are already saying this is perhaps the worst contract ever signed, from the players perspective. Its one thing for an agent to say that, but for other execs to say it?

    I feel like AA has something over Acuna and Ozzie's head. Perhaps naked photos of them or something.
