Fun fact: Almora has the same OPS as Lorenzo Cain this year.

Cain’s been more valuable because he actually knows how to play defense and he’s got 40 points of OBP. I knew Cain had fallen off but I didn’t realize how much.

Man, I wish I could find a clip of the hilarious anguished wail he unleashed earlier this season when he (shocker) weakly popped out in a key RBI situation. He sounded like such a dork.

I remember this anguished wail about as well as you do - like, can confirm this happened, but also no clue the specific game. I'm actually Almoranguishedwailing over not remembering the details right now, but it happened and was hilarious

Yeah, Rizzo, yells and swears all the time, too. This flat-out sounded like Almora is actually a bunch of Muppet birds wearing a human suit.
