  1. It would be such a big deal if Volpe figured it out, instead of being fantastic for a while and then a bottomless hole for even longer.
    Maybe he’s spending too much time around Stanton.

  2. A Volpe (R) SS
    J Soto (L) RF
    A Judge (R) CF
    G Stanton (R) DH
    A Rizzo (L) 1B
    G Torres (R) 2B
    J Berti (R) 3B
    J Trevino (R) C
    J Jones (R) LF We need to talk Aaron. Seriously! A career 178 hitter with a total of 2 games playing the OF. Verdugo sitting against a LHP, Stanton no longer allowed to play in the field and Waldo.

    1. Boone had been so much better with his lineups this season, just allowing the good players to play basically everyday. I guess we had to know it couldn’t last.

    2. But playing Jones out of position is even sub Booner. Meanwhile doesn’t seem smart to me to not let Stanton get some reps in the OF.

      Berti has played 95 games in the OF, Waldo is a switch hitter and Grisham who Cash is paying 5 Million has a higher career OPS vs LHPs. There’s no reason for Jones to be playing.

    3. “just allowing the good players to play basically everyday”

      You can understand Boone’s logic.
      Boone was willing to do that while they were hitting poorly.

      Now that they’re starting to hit better, he must start benching them again.

      “sub Booner”
