*LHP Bill Bray (strained left groin) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville. Bray met the team in Norfolk.

1 for 26 and he’s still in the lineup?

One of the best hitters and defenders on the team, why would you take him out?

Because it’s a perfect time to give him a day off. That’s why! Dusty plays the numbers all the time, so why not here? I’m with JB.

You guys are with taking out one of your best players? Ok, do what you gotta do. Game 3 for me tonight. Let’s start off the series right.
