    One small change that this team could do is bring up Kelly and dump Goins.

    Tell Morales he's going to play the field some. Then use the DH spot as a roving spot for all the old guys to get rest. Kelly can come in handy in this spot as he can mix and match the rest of the game with Barney, Zeke, Smoak, etc. If we are going to have a 0 WAR player on the field, instead of it being Smoak why not use Kelly and others to at least give an old guy some rest.

    Taz spits on coaches who tell him to hit down on the ball...


    Jokes aside, I was videotaping my 6 year old's swing the other day and was remarkably impressed with how good it looked in slow motion. I was going to post it here to see what the experts think (so I could help him if they see a flaw).

    Jays shaking up the lineup--Morales at 1B, Donaldson hitting 3rd and DHing, Smoak benched (hopefully for a while):

    Here's some help- let your 6 year old be a 6 year old. Emphasize hard work and hustle. Let him play multiple sports. No need to worry about results at that age.

    Cool. I was getting worried that the team was unwilling to play Morales in the field. You want to cut into Smoak's starts not his when offering the older players a DH breather. The Donaldson/Bautista flip flop seems kind of pointless but maybe they want to subtly encourage Bautista to follow Greg Zaun's advice and be less ambitious at the plate.

    Morales being able to play a passable 1B would be very nice.

    With the above lineup, I'd probably also move Russ down below Pearce.

    Last night they had Martin back to back with Smoak...predictable results..
    Tonight Martin batting before Pearce is another recipe for disaster...
    Unreal...

    Yeah - I'm doing that....but there's no reason not to try and develop proper muscle memory, such that when he works hard, it actually helps him improve instead of doing the same thing wrong over and over while building poor habits.

    It really pisses me off that Norris chose TB over TOR. We could really use a solid backup.
