Tucker has stressed this before, but I want to state it again.

Manny Machado may struggle initially, but he has always adjusted at every single level he has played at. Scouts have seen him make changes in game.

I just hope the fan base doesn't get too down on him if he struggles. He's a special talent.

So much excitement building towards this game. Couldn't have started any worse. Glad Chen is okay.

Not a bad first career hit!

Matt Wieters also tripled for his first career hit.
