  • Kelly Johnson is getting the start at third and hitting third, while Evan Longoria handles the DH duties and hitting fourth.
  • Hmm, a Johnson and an Escobar in the lineup tonight for both teams.
  • You can read about tonight’s pitching match-up here.
  • We’ve put together/posted a pair of articles about the potential of Wil Myers getting called up in the near future. You can check them out here and here.
  • Apparently Chris Archer is getting some flack for his show of emotion Wednesday, after striking out Daniel Nava with the bases loaded to end the inning. Archer tweeted, “Oh, just to let everyone know, I was not “kissing my arm” after the AB against Nava. That would be a bit overboard.” In my opinion, Archer has no reason to apologize. He is an animated and passionate player, who was genuinely excited to get out of a jam unscathed. I’d argue that if anyone needs to apologize, it’s Koji Uehara for his mockery of Archer as he came off the mound, after striking out Longo on three pitches. Uehara lost a huge amount of respect for his public act of stupidity.
