It looks like there was some good chatter yesterday among you all while we were flying here to Cincinnati. Read through most of it this morning and glad to see that a lot of people have not yet started waving the white flag. There were some good posts with some good thought put into them. No doubt, this team is in a funk and needs to turn things around quickly. Hopefully today is the start of that turnaround.
Speaking of chatter, if you’d like to ask questions directly of Ned, he’ll be hosting an online chat today at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. local time here in Cincinnati to try and answer some of your questions and concerns. We had originally scheduled this to come after the trade deadline so that he could talk about whatever trades were or weren’t made, but the timing is pretty good, anyway, given all that’s happening of late.
The lineup will follow later this afternoon. And yes, Clayton Kershaw was promoted to Double-A Jacksonville.
UPDATE: Lineup for today –
