They bring in a bee keeper to deal with the bees, then let the bee keeper throw the first pitch.



It's supposed to be hard! If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great!

Arias in center experiment should be over. Three dumb decisions tonight. One of them cost us.

Feel bad for the pitching staff. Official scorer ruled both triples.

The 1st should have been an error, the 2nd I would have ruled a single with a 2 base error. Arguably a double and a 1 base error but also arguably an error altogether

My post came before the 2nd 3 bagger. I was talking about the ball Rocchio had to catch over his head because Arias didn’t take charge. The other mistake was him almost running into Brennen.

Agreed. Arias is/was a complete disaster in CF. Anotnetti and Chernoff need stop trying to force him into a position he's terrible at.

Got to watch some of the game last night.

That was some slide by Kwan at home. He is an impressive player.

Kyle Manzardo to be called up by Guardians (source)
https://www.mlb.com/news/kyle-manzardo-guardians-prospect-call-up

CLEVELAND -- The Kyle Manzardo Era is about to begin in Cleveland.

According to sources, the Guardians are expected to add Manzardo to the Major League roster on Monday afternoon in place of outfielder Steven Kwan, who will be heading to the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain. The team has not confirmed the moves.

Manzardo, the team’s No. 2 prospect and No. 52 overall according to MLB Pipeline, has done everything in his power to get this call. In his last 14 games alone, he’s hit eight homers with six doubles and 14 RBIs. His defense at first base has improved and his bat has been consistent since the Triple-A season began.

“He’s been good against left-handed pitching, his approach against lefties has improved,” Guardians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti said prior to Cleveland’s 4-1 victory over the Angels on Sunday. “He’s worked really hard at his defense, both his footwork around the bag and his throwing and he continues to put up and manage really good at-bats.”

The problem was, the Guardians didn’t have room for young first baseman on the active roster. Josh Naylor handles the everyday duties at first base. Gabriel Arias brings defensive versatility to the table. Estevan Florial is still young and the team needs a longer look at him before deciding if it wants to part ways. Ramón Laureano is one of the few right-handed bats the team can turn to off the bench. There wasn’t a missing piece of the puzzle that Manzardo would be able to fill, despite how well he was hitting in Columbus.

That is, until now. This is the last way the Guardians would’ve wanted to add Manzardo to the roster, considering Kwan has been the best hitter in the American League this year. Entering the day, his 47 hits and .353 average were the best in the AL and he hadn’t struck out in an MLB-best 74 consecutive plate appearances. Adding Manzardo is something the team would hope would only improve the lineup, but this way, it’s coming with some drawbacks with the loss of the Guardians' leadoff hitter.

With Kwan on the IL, expect Will Brennan to see more time in left field and Laureano in right. Florial has the ability to play all three outfield spots, so the Guardians are still covered in the grass. Manzardo can work in at first base, but can also serve as the DH on days that Naylor is in the field.

However, Manzardo will now have his chance to prove that what he did all through Spring Training and in Triple-A can translate to the big league level. He was acquired at last year’s Trade Deadline from the Rays in exchange for righty Aaron Civale to bring some pop to the middle of the order that’s been missing from this lineup. With José Ramírez going deep on Sunday and Josh Naylor being the source of this team’s power all season, adding Manzardo has the potential to boost this lineup even more.

In 13 Cactus League games, Manzardo hit .381 with a .934 OPS, two doubles and two RBIs. The Guardians optioned him to Triple-A Columbus, hoping that he would show that his success at the plate would continue throughout the early weeks of the season. Once it did, it was clear that Manzardo was the only option to be promoted when a spot opened up.

He is mentioned in the last post on page 8 of this thread.

he is listed 3rd in the adjusted exit velocity list
Behind Rodriguez and Manzardo

Until that point I had never heard of him.
Pretty decent batting stats
How is his defense?

We have several good hitting middle infielders in the minors - Brito, Martinez, etc
They all have basically the same question about them.
Are the ygood enough defensively to play SS in the pro's or are they really second basemen?

He played all over the infield in Camp. He plays SS in Col... He is an infielder who hits for power and gets on base ! I thought he outplayed both Arias and Ricco in Spring training.

Agreed! Got to see last night's win. Usually gagging on Bally's overkill coverage of Cincytucky Reds. Pre-game, game, post=game and then re-broadcast it. This was a gritty win! Clase (?) is impressive closer. Not-the-Tribe looked good though attendance seemed sparse. Getting all Guardy.

I hope they leave Florial in LF/CF and bat leadoff the entire time Kwan is out. He looks to be getting going now. Watch he’ll be on the bench tonight.
