Trea with a leadoff ground-rule double to extend his hitting streak.

Brock Holt is in the dug-out. Since he was a Red Sox since 2013, I wonder if he lives in the Boston area, and hadn't relocated to Milwaukee except on a temporary basis.

Is it normal for defending WS champs to trot out Asdrubal as the cleanup hitter day after day?

you mean that .315 slugging percentage over his last 15 games doesn't make him the primary cleanup option?

"the man in the scoreboard" sounds like a Netflix series.

I think it's safe to say that Sanchez ain't gonna cut it this year

It's early...only the 30th game of the year...

He'll get it going in the second half...

Since we have Holt in our dugout for this game, maybe we can trade for Moreland for tomorrow

The one thing I might try with the batting order is move Suzuki / Gomes to #3 and put Howie #4. I like how the catchers are hitting

Bob just mentioned Alex Chappell’s dad, Phil Corddry. Turns out he is a Walter Johnson grad (‘65 I believe). He then went to the UMD before signing with the Sox getting up to AAA.
