"I know everyone’s numbers look better after hanging a 12-spot, but can we talk more about Luis Robert? He might have been safe on the Gurriel throw anyway after getting a great jump off third. He’s now 6-for-12 in this series with just one strikeout against two walks. (His teammates have 29 strikeouts and seven walks.) There’s a Fernando Tatis Jr. quality to his game, where you have to keep your eyes on him at all times, because he might do something you’ll tell your friends about. I have no rooting interest here, but as with the Rays and Wander Franco, I’d like to see the exciting young player play more this October."
