    JD is on a tear. Why not move him up to 2nd or 3rd?

    Glad to see Ian out of the lineup. He should be fine when he returns.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone come out of such a protracted slump as hotly as Upton has.

    Where the h*ll has he been. Theres just no way someone can slump for 5 months then suddenly become “the man”…..and yet here he is live and in person!

      The cynic in me thinks Upton recently had his final random drug test of the season and started popping some magic vitamins…

    This series is important as they all are but the next one against the 5-19 since 2013 Angels looms as the make or break series…especially with the Indians with West Coast games…

      Agree, if for no other reason to stay within striking distance so that the 7 games against the tribe are meaningful. Poor Greene throws 3 DP grounders and can’t get any. That’s why it’s nice to have little cushion in the late innings.
