Oh goody, Grossman starts and Baddoo sits.

It would seem to make more sense to send Baddoo to play everyday rather than sit the bench in Detroit.  Or maybe Toronto plans to have Berrios pitch left handed today.

Ya think? More than any other thing in the Avila/Hinch 'era' this is telling me they have no clue what they are doing.

Grossman gives them the best chance to win... definitely most important consideration when 19 games under .500 👍

Why did they bring up Badoo if not to play him most days ? Maybe a disconnect between Al and Hinch like Money ball ? “ Pena is playing first base “. 

Al has CarShield insurance and AJ does not.

I assume they are playing Grossman until trade deadline. He has a OPS of .999 vs LHP so he might be some team's third choice if they want to get a specific bench piece.

If he is still playing for this team next week, it will be maddening.

manager wants wins, GM wants development? Manager feels he's in a stronger situation contract wise than the GM so he basically thumbs his nose at him? Great. Only in Detroit.

100%.  Avila is so clueless that he gave Hinch a 5 year contract when no one else would have offered him anything at all.  And Hinch seems to have a knack for bringing out the worst in his players and making really stupid tactical decisions.

Today’s game is brought to you by the letter “e”.

Egads, everybody is earning errors.

This season brought to you by the Ministry of Love’s Room 101.  Room 101: It’s the worst thing in the World.
