Not a lot of people in ATL actually give a #### about baseball, or, really pro sports.


What do they care about down there?

College sports?

I knew #### about that city
   402. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:15 AM (#3938376)
I'll see you a Braves fan and raise you a Phil Coorey!
I don't even know what that means.
   403. Textbook Editor Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:15 AM (#3938377)
From Extra Bases; I think Carfado hit the bottle early:

Beckett has been relieved by Daniel Bard. Beckett threw 108 pitches in six innings, allowed seven hits and six runs. Not what the Red Sox were looking for.


I can't say I blame him.
   404. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:16 AM (#3938378)

Football. Yes, mostly college.

I blame this awful stretch on the negative energy from most Sox chatterers.

Montero grounds out to end it. 5-2.

Rays win.

Obviously by #### this ####### team I didn't mean to wish any human beings actual pain.


Yeah, right, neckstabber. :)
   417. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:19 AM (#3938394)
We're talking about the same guy who couldn't get out of an inning in a blowout against the Rays' AAAA players the other day right? The one who threw 7 strikes out of 27 pitches?


We're talking about the same guy who made his MLB *debut*, against his life-long team's arch-rivals, in his first *relief appearanc of the year, after 3 weeks off?

That guy?

Yeah, I'm going to go ahead and say that appearance isn't going to be representative of his MLB appearances. This year, or any ...
   418. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:19 AM (#3938395)
What happened, Eso? I've got the Rays on.
HBP, then a balk to get the runner to second with nobody out. 1 out now.
   419. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:19 AM (#3938396)
This is not a criticism of the line up - but - Carl Crawford has been ####### GREAT TONIGHT

What a ####### #### of a player - I'll never ever forgive him for this giant turd of a season he dumped on the Sox - ever.
   420. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:20 AM (#3938398)
6-3 Orioles, 1 out and a runner on first. COME ON NO MORE CHOKE.
   421. Gamingboy Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:20 AM (#3938399)
This is all part of Buck Showalter's vendetta, remember. The pain may have only just begun.
   422. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:20 AM (#3938400)
I don't give a flying #### how bad this stretch has been. At worst your team is still tied for a playoff spot with two games left. Have some ####### hope you bunch of faithless pussies. You lived through 2004 for christ's sake.
   423. Spahn Insane Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:20 AM (#3938401)
Tying run on. Yikes.
   424. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:20 AM (#3938402)
Oh jesus, an infield hit. Now the tying run is at the plate with 1 out.

It's all falling apart for the O's.

I wish we were all sitting around a bar together right now getting drunk, and we could put Phil up on a stage with a mic and a bottle of something and just let him loose. Would make this way more fun.
   426. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:21 AM (#3938404)
Another tease - great
   427. Textbook Editor Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:21 AM (#3938405)

The Rays are the Yankees' arch-rivals? Never knew.
   429. Joel W Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:21 AM (#3938407)
It's almost as though if the Sox had held the Orioles to 3 runs by utilizing the "bullpen" they could be in this game.

Off the monster for sure , right ?
   436. ColonelTom Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:24 AM (#3938416)
Adrian Gonzalez reminds me of Bill O'Reilly. Must be the eyebrows.
   437. Chip Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:24 AM (#3938417)
"Adrian made a bid." No Don, he took an off-balance swing and hit a ball weakly off the end-of-the bat that turned into a lazy fly.
   438. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:24 AM (#3938418)

Uehara is a Texas Ranger. He wasn't closing anyway though, Gregg was.

Top 8, Hou up 2 with no out, men on 1st and 2nd, and Berkman up v. Fernando Rodriguez, a minor league journeyman.

   458. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:32 AM (#3938452)
Are you effing kidding me the Cards just did a double-steal with Pujols and Holliday?
   459. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:33 AM (#3938453)

Oh come on, where's your sense of fun? Of excitement? This is one of the great baseball romances, playing out before our very eyes.
   462. The kids disappeared, now Der-K has too much candy Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:33 AM (#3938459)
Dear Houston Astros,
Please at least try.

Lovingly yours,

   463. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:34 AM (#3938460)
Honestly, I'm very nearly as excited about the Braves choking away their WC berth as I am about the Red Sox, especially because the Nationals played their own scrappy role in bringing it about.

Only downside: vindication for La Russa. F**k him.

   466. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:37 AM (#3938469)
The Rays are the Yankees' arch-rivals? Never knew.


Yup, you're right, I mis-remembered which game he came into the end of last week.

Everything else, though?

Yeah ...

Your "I'm not trolling" act would be more convincing if you were expressing pure excitement for the teams playing well rather than reveling in talking about choking and how much you hate one of the teams.
   469. The kids disappeared, now Der-K has too much candy Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:38 AM (#3938477)
Oh, to be clear, I wrote 462 before the Berkman double.

Yup, you're right, I mis-remembered which game he came into the end of last week.

Yeah ...


I'm not suggesting that he's going to have more appearances where he's going to throw under 25% of his pitches for strikes, but if the Red Sox hopes come down to hoping Betances can out pitch David Price on Wednesday then I don't think they're in a very good position.

I'm a Nats fan. I want the Braves and Mets and their fans to go straight to hell, with cordial exception of those on this site. And I make no apologies for that.

Otherwise it's all about the DRAMA.

Well, that's true enough.

Christ, the Cardinals are relying on Nick Punto here?

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH, another data point for the DON'T ####### SLIDE INTO FIRST, YOU ####### MORON truism.

Ozzie deal is for 2 minor leaguers, suggests an early ESPN report.

Yeah, Jon Jay! Hurrah for darling Nicky! Cards strand guys on 2nd and 3rd.

Y'know, the Cards game has its own thread. C'mon over.

[476] Latest from mlbtraderumors.com:


9:18pm: The White Sox could obtain money in the deal instead of or along with a prospect, according to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post (Twitter link).

8:58pm: The White Sox are hoping for a "decent prospect" from the Marlins, but they aren't expecting anyone on Florida's 40-man roster, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today (on Twitter).


Who knows?

   481. Mayor Blomberg Posted: September 27, 2011 at 02:49 AM (#3938515)
had the bag, Benji? Naw, not on the replay. Clank does a good Buckner, but the ball was slower than he is.

The 2,000 people at Turner Field tonight beg to differ!

Either there's a misprint, or the Braves actually drew 42,597 tonight. There must have been a promotion where the first 10,000 people who showed up were a guaranteed lifetime of not being audited by the IRS.

Meanwhile, has there ever been an also-ran that's had a more thoroughly enjoyable September than the Orioles? They've tortured every contender and pretender without fear or favor.
