    8 Ks in almost 4 innings for Pearson.

    That seems kinda unfair lol

    He made 78 pitches today so he could probably go 85-90 pitches in his next start. That's at least 4-5 innings. They may as well just let him pitch those 4-5 innings in a split starting role with Stripling, Thornton or whoever rather then giving him 1 more AAA start.

    Tabler is oddly fixated on letting everyone know where his kids go to college. Because tonight isn't the first time he's dived into a collegiate trivia tangent that loops around to "my son/daughter goes there!"

    Semien swinging for those fences lol. He of all people should know home runs, much like high payrolls aren't allowed in Oakland.

    I loved how he seemed to genuinely think it was a story everyone would be interested in to the point he should talk about it on live TV.

    Pat: "You know where he went to school?"
    Dan: "Where?"
    Pat: *excitedly names a school I've never heard of*
    Dan: "..."
    Pat: "My son went there!"

    I'm left to wonder if this is a side effect of the games being broadcast remotely (and in Tabler's case from his home). Normally they'd be together in the park where they can read the mood and only/mostly be fixated on stuff happening around the game. But here Tabler's in his den with his own knicknacks and pictures of his kids to look at and likely not always a direct look at Dan rolling his eyes and groaning as Tabby tries to fill airtime by talking about where his kids go to college or what dark sorcery is causing the wind to change direction.

    I’ve fallen a few minutes behind here but just heard that’s it’s Montoyo’s logic that they can’t afford to use Thornton as a starter because they’re so short on starters? Twice Ive made fun of Buck this year for saying that but now that I hear it’s Montoyo’s logic it makes so much more sense. Not the bad logic itself but where it came from. Seemed too bad for even Buck to come up with.

    Where were all these bad inside strike calls when Kay had 2 strikes on guys in the 2nd inning?

    I mean... to some extent I get the logic; with so few reliable starters, you need a couple of guys who give go multiple innings out of the pen if needed.

    But this is a bit more like, say, letting Britton sit and watch from the pen: you desperately need him, but you're not going to use him because what if there's a spot later on where you need him?

    Reese McGuire is going to be activated to the taxi squad. Charlie must be thrilled.

    If they actually had 5 starters but didn't trust them and felt they needed length from the pen and didn't want to send Thornton down to stay stretched out that would make sense. But they were down to 2 starters and they logic was they couldn't have Thornton go 5 innings per game because they needed him 2 innings in a bullpen day every 4 days instead. He wasn't stretched out at the time so it's not that simple, but it reads like we're so short on starters rather than help fill that hole with Thornton they instead use him to try to solve a small portion of the issues that hole creates.

    That's a handful of strike three calls clearly off the plate against the Jays. Ugh.

    Damn, I hope this doesn't turn out to be a disastrous road trip 3-7 or 2-8.

    Starting 1B Joe Panik. If there was ever any doubt who Charlie's favorite was.

    Gotta stop gripping the stick so tightly, Reese. It's no wonder the pitcher ends up catching you with your pants down.
