MLB: Miami Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

I’m as big a J.T. Realmuto defender there is. While he may not be the #BCIB anymore, he’s still quite good.

I’ll also openly acknowledge he has been pretty disappointing with the bat this year and lately, his defense has started to reflect those struggles. I still firmly believe he’ll snap out of it before long, so I’ll remain optimistic. However, after Garrett Stubbs’ heroics yesterday, he has earned at least another start tonight in Washington. A little more rest for Realmuto won’t hurt him and could help a bit even.

On to the links.
