How bad was Freddie's 3B defense?

It wasn't great but it also wasn't terrible and he was getting better. He's just clearly a MUCH better 1B than 3B

Let's lobby for Schwarbs and Voit in their respective left fields tonight. All-beef day.

I'll have you know that Kyle Schwarber is the 5th best defensive Left Fielder in the majors of those with at least 500 innings at the position.

Jeff Passan and Doug Gottlieb are having a little twitter beef.

Gottlieb had some dumb hot take about how we should be suspicious Adrian Beltre is on steroids because he's from the Dominican Republic and it's easy to get PEDs there. This wasn't Passan's initial reply but it's his best:

Supposedly once the mandatory 10 days are up, Dansby comes back from Gwinnett and retakes short and he and Albies hold down middle infield for the next 5-7 years. Camargo goes to third for now, Rodriguez backs up, Phillips gets traded. Adams flails around LF till Kemp comes back or they bring Acuna up.

But Santana at third is just dumb desperation.

Huh, CC Sabathia made his 500th career start tonight. How rare is that these days?

I mean he's not really all that old after looking him up so maybe this is less impressive than I thought. For some reason I thought he was like 42 or something.

He debuted in 2001 - 16 freaking years ago. Man do I feel old - hell, it's been 9 years since he's been an Indian!! I watched him pitch in AA Akron and AAA Buffalo and thought this kid's gonna be something special - i still root for him

If there was ever a pitcher who I thought had even less of a chance of hitting a dinger than Bartolo, it'd be Hendricks.
