The obsession with Kike would be hilarious if it weren’t so pathetic.

Is Freese dead or is there some other reason he should be sitting in favor of Kike at 1B?

Knee soreness. We have several guys who are hurting which means lots more Kike & Taylor. Turner hammy, Freese knee, Joc & Dugo back issues.

That makes sense then. Getting dinged up early this year is never good but they will need them after the break so better to rest them now with this lead in the division.

Taylor comes thru big time w/2R triple.
That swing by Taylor was nice. I wish the guy could just cut down enough and not try and be Babe Ruth. Same with Kike. These guys don't need to hit 30 bombs to be effective for us.

I see Kike doing it some but not Taylor. He said he will not change his swing.

That's why he is not a smart player. The guy hit 21 bombs two seasons ago and has been trending down ever since. Sitting at 5 HR's and batting .218 isn't really even worth a roster spot if he wasn't one of those Swiss Army Knives in the field for a team that needs that. It certainly doesn't justify a long and looping swing. The guy needs to evolve because pitchers have figured him out.
