Very costly error, Cruz’s 4th on the season, he also had 15 for Indy so 19 total.

Bucs lead the majors in errors, obviously they do not have a good enough offense to overcome all of the errors. Pitching has been pretty solid the last 3 weeks, offense continues its slumber and the defense has not been that good.

This is looking like it is going to be one of those 20-2 type games.

Scrubs already have 3 runs on 4 hits, Wilson has only recorded one out.

Wilson settles down nicely only giving up the three first inning runs.

Bucs back in the game with another Cruz homer.

3-2 Cubs in the 7th

Scrubs 4 Bucs 2 Final

Bucs now 1-4 post all star break

The offense was clicking much better with Madris and Marcano in the lineup. VanMeter, Mitchell, Allan, Tsutsugo are just not getting it done.

The offense has basically been Cruz and that’s it.

Time to get rid of this dead weight and bring back Suwinski, Madris, and Marcano.

And yes that swoosh sound is the Cubs blowing right past the Bucs in the standings.

Aren't Suwinski and Madris being service time manipulated?

Bob thinks we're still in tank mode. I'm expecting a steady diet of lineups like this.

I am still trying to figure out how service time works for rookies that play a partial season.
Roansy Contreras last start in the majors was 6 innings 4 hits 1 walk 1 run 7 k's.
He pitched in triple A last night. Has anyone heard anything about when he will be called up?

The talk from the front office said it was to limit and monitor his innings.

Thanks Dan. I trust this front office more than most people, but don't always trust what parameters the ownership gives the front office to work with. Limiting innings is probably smart. I wish I heard somewhere that his triple A outing last night was a tune up to get him ready for a trip back to the majors. Do you think that is coming shortly?

It said he went two innings last night. I am hoping to see him back on the team once Quintana is traded, but if he only threw 2 innings he might not be stretched enough to join the rotation next week.

Here is what most people don't want to see. 2023 will be a lottery for the draft based on how bad you finish. I am not sure, but I would imagine the worse you finish, the more slot money you have to sign players. 18 teams all have a chance of receive a lottery pick in the top 6. The worst 3 records all have equally the best chance in the lottery. If the season ended now, here are the chances for each team receiving the number one pick.

CURRENTLY THE WORST RECORDS IN BASEBALL
(16.5%)Nationals 34-55 .340 -
(16.5%)Athletics 38-63 .376 -
(16.5%)Reds 38-59 .392 -
(13.25%)Royals 39-59 .398 .5 games out of third
(10%)Tigers 40-59 .404 1 games out of third
(7.5%)Pirates 40-58 .408 1.5 games out of third
(5.5%)Cubs 40-57 .412 2 games out of third
