Apparently Santana and Asdurbal are out today. And Marson is back.

Reportedly the flu for Santana. Right quad issue for Cabrera.

Zach McAllister's comeback fastball on the outside corner to righties is a terrific pitch.

Tremendous adjustment by Reynolds. Great piece of hitting. Was looking for that pitch and sprayed it to RF.

Knew that was going to happen. That's why I always feel anxious when we have someone on first base during a rally against a pitcher who usually gives us fits.

Fancy swinging at the first pitch Raburn you donkey

McAllister at 79 pitches after 4

I know we have an off day tomorrow but I hope Zach can get through 2 more innings at no more than 100-103 pitches. He showing signs of being a bit Jake Westbrook circa 2002-03. Throwing too many pitches and not making it through to the 6th or 7th innings

Looks like a correctable mechanics issue. To me, it looks like his body is getting too far out in front of his arm and his arm is speeding up to compensate, thus the overthrowing and lack of command on his fastball. Could be wrong, but that's what it looks like to me.

Marson needs to be calling a few more breaking balls to try and slow him down. He's thrown a couple quality changeups and a couple good curve balls. I know he wants to work that two-seamer in and out, but his precision hasn't been there with it over the last two starts.

Now that I think about it, a lot of his problems have been from the stretch. Bastian gave the stat that baserunners are 80/91 in SB off of McAllister since 2010. Definitely hurrying through his motion when in the stretch, more so than from the windup.

Another good approach from Reynolds. Just go ahead and take the free RBI to get a run closer.

Swisher's swing has gotten very long the last couple of days.

Raburn has seen about 5 pitches in his 3 at bats


should have gotten Kipnis home.
Ah well, 2 runs, a 1run ball game and we kicked Quintana out of the game

Missed chances today and Adam nailed it.... Swisher with a very long swing in situations that didn't call for it!

Looks like he's swinging for the fences when a lazy fly ball or grounder back up the middle will do the trick.

Even with flu like symptoms, I'm a little surprised we didn't see Santana in the 9th.

I was surprised we didn't see Giambi for Raburn. Guess he was saving him for Marson, but you have to get to that point.

How many rained out games are we going to have this season? Is that the 5th? Cause that would mean that more than a fourth of our games have been rained out.

Four. Two in the Skankee series at home, one at Chi this week, now this one in KC. I don't know about you, but I'm getting webbed feet from their rainouts.
