Notes

Cueto + Tromp: It’s starting to seem like Chadwick Tromp is Johnny Cueto’s personal catcher, with Joey Bart starting for everyone but Cueto.

That’s a rough lineup: Arizona is not starting a single player that is hitting better than league average, per OPS+. They’ll probably score 12 runs because I mentioned this, but yeesh.

More dinger opportunities: Yesterday I mentioned that the Giants could use the long ball against Madison Bumgarner, and they did. It applies again tonight to Alex Young, who has given up 7 home runs in just 28 innings. The Giants have a golden opportunity to hit the ball over the fence.


Enjoy the baseball, friends.
