    This would be the first game-day thread I started on RBN.

    Alex!

    Guthrie remains the weakest link in the rotation despite putting together a couple of very good starts. I expect the bullpen to get some work tonight.

    Hey Meti, you might actually get your sweep. At least we are in position for it.

    Well played, Salvador!

    Magic number four! Let’s hope Guthrie can hold up his end.

    Guthrie doesn’t look his best tonight so I hope that Yost doesn’t let things get out of hand if Guthrie has a bad inning.

    Ned Yost: “If you bring up another bench player, somebody has got to go. What moves do we have to make?” I am only the messenger.

    Guthrie could scatter 10+ hits tonight, but as long as he keeps the Diamondbacks from getting more runs than the Royals, I’m cool with it.

    When and to whom did he make this statement, bojacked?

    How many other teams carry 13 pitchers on their roster?

    From McCullough’s Twitter feed. I’ve got to believe he asked Yost and got that response.

    Well, barring anything crazy, we technically are in it for the wild card. There’s that.

    With only 87 pitches at this point, I definitely send out Guthrie for the 8th to give Davis and possibly Holland a night off. You never know how much we will need them in the next few days with the teams we have to play.

    I’m thinking someone needs to teach Guthrie how to slide before his next outing just in case.

  • August 7, 2014 at 11:12 pm

    Guthrie HBP?

    When was our last complete game? The last one I remember was Hoch’s masterpiece a few years back.
