    In fairness, two guys who can touch up anyone.

    This staff has no clue how to pitch Baez. He swings at EVERYTHING. Why are you laying stuff in there early in the count? I watched them in the Pirates series recently, and he didnít get jack squat to hit. This isnít complicated.

    8/23/18 Reds @ Cubs 8:06ish start

    Ian Happ: on base against no one else - ever.

    EDIT: actually has a .358 OBP. Did not realize that. But it feels like .758 vs Reds.

    I think Thom mentioned it's over .600 vs the Reds this year.

    .509 for his career vs Reds prior to today. OPS north of 1.200

    Baez is just good. I want to dislike him, but as a baseball fan in general, itís hard to do that.

    He was wrong or I misheard close to .600. It's still ridiculous.
