They sent down Gavin Sheets.

Hopefully, Grandal isn’t far behind. I want to see the team the way Hahn envisioned it get a chance to gel before the playoffs.

Really hope there's no more serious injuries the rest of the way after Grandal returns, not with a team that has the chance to make the best playoff run in sixteen years or one just as good as that year. I think you all know what happened. Robert is a special talent and you want to see guys like that healthy.

He looks much more disciplined at the plate. If you have to throw him strikes, look out.

Also, all the tools were on display last night.

Having Eloy and Robert back makes things a lot easier on Abreu, Moncada, and Vaughn.

When Grandal comes back it's basically murder's row. Really won't be any spot in the lineup that isn't dangerous other than maybe 9, but even that will be Engel-Goodwin-Lamb, all of whom can hurt you.

Robert’s approach has improved considerably this season. He’s really rounding into form at the plate. When he’s disciplined, he’s extremely difficult to get out. Gordon Beckham was doing color yesterday and just loved his batting eye and plate coverage. He said “I‘m not sure there’s a way to get him out in this at bat unless he chases something high and in.” Next pitch, Robert belted a two run homer...

Pretty cool...
