Incredible sweep yesterday! The walk off double was thrilling. Both Bud and Gausman pitched excellent games yesterday striking out a lot of batters.

Magic number is five... And we've got 8 games left on this home stand alone. Could have it clinched on Monday if all goes right but easily by mid week even

Should Buck try De Aza as lead off guy instead of Markakis? It might provide a needed boost to our offense.

I love the move to bring up Christian Walker to play in these last eleven (now ten) games. This was not an easy move as we had to put him on the 40 man roster, and we know how much Duquette values each spot on the 40 man for roster flexibility. However, with Davis's suspension, Walker has the opportunity to get valuable experience while allowing Buck to rest some of our key guys.

 

Walker has put up solid minor league stats. While his tools don't jump off the chart, he has a great baseball IQ and is going to benefit tremendously playing everyday at first base these last two weeks, while being in the clubhouse with a division championship team. Not to mention he will get to learn from fellow South Carolina-alum Steve Pearce. Pearce is another guy who was overlooked for not having all the tools, but ended up becoming our best player this season (according to WAR). I am excited to see Walker play.

Does the post season count against Davis 25 game suspension? So he could be back when we square off in the World Series?

Yeah I think it does.  I am almost certain of it.  I could swear a guy several yrs ago had to serve the post season.

Yes 100%. He's out for 25 straight wherever they fall. It will be 8 postseason games. Could be into alcs or into world series if we run two sweeps.
