  • Coco's back in the leadoff spot again. As for now, we seem to have alternating leadoff hitters...
  • Gonzo's knee keeps bothering him, which means another start for Cora at SS.
  • LOOGY Javier Lopez has been recalled from Pawtucket. To make room, Jermaine van Buren was sent down.
  • Theo addressed the current situation in a talk with reporters. Some choice quotes can be found here.
