Sitting at work. Saw the highlight of Moose throwing someone out in the 2nd. Running in and barehand pickup. No way Shaw gets an out there.

Am I the only one that thinks Moose is better at defensively at 3B than Shaw? I understand keeping Shaw happy as he will be here next year and Moose won't. But now.........

Braun has turned into a very streaky hitter. When he's good he's very good, but when he's bad he's very bad. Another K chasing a pitch way out of the zone.

I agree, Moose is the better defender at 3b. He definitely has more range and is more agile.

Part of me thinks...I don't want to batter the bullpen too badly as they face the Cubs next. But.....we need to win. Also Reds have a day off tomorrow so they should be fine.


They have a deep, strong bullpen. Second in all of baseball strong. Not gonna be easy to score off of.

I don't think moving Moose to 2nd this year as opposed to moving Shaw to 2nd last summer had anything to do with trying to keep Shaw happy.

With the thin bench and Davies not going too long today would expect Woodruff to pinch hit for the second day in a row.

Then why? That's the only reason I can think of.

It more has to do with Shaw being part of the long-term future, and there being next to no depth at 3B beyond him. As we know, Moose is on a 1-year deal, and there is a strong 2B contingency plan in place.

Is Burnes pitching in a high-leverage enough situation?

So you are saying Shaw would forget how to play 3B for 2020 if he played 2B this year? I'm still going with they were keeping Shaw happy, and they told Moose the situation before he signed, so he knew ahead of time the deal.

You beat me to this!! I guess two run deficits are more high leverage than three run deficits.

I’m sure he’s thankful to just be pitching for the big league team after last Friday.

So much for this one being over and going for a walk because they can't score five runs this game.

"You're not going to have him when you want him and you're going to run out of games. He can't pitch 90 games. It's just not going to work. If anyone thinks it's going to work, show me how."- Craig Counsell on Josh Hader.

No. I'm sure Shaw could have played at 2B. I think they saw and continue to see him as the team's long-term 3B, and figured that the defense was close enough that Shaw should just stay at 3B. But it can also be argued that Moose's quicker hands and instincts also make him a better fit at 2B than Shaw.

I repeat every single game but this is the worst baserunning team in the majors and it's not close. It's unbelievable.


FanGraphs currently has us 23rd at -2.4 runs on the bases to this point.

The Padres are currently last at -5.9 runs on the bases to this point.

Well folks, enjoy the rest of the game.


I'm at work, but following along on the internet has been enjoyable.

From Moose's perspective, playing 2b decent or better adds versatility and makes him more attractive next year in FA.

It started early, it may not be over for some time if it stays tied.

LOL - I'm getting a kick out of Sveum's call outs. The Hiura hating crowd has also quieted down I see...
