I'm guessing a 5-game sweep hasn't happened in awhile.
Oof. Molina may be done for season.
The A's should trot out a team of 9 catchers someday
A thing I didn't realize was quite this remarkable until I read about it on WHYGAVS: The Pirates are 11-25 against the Brewers, Cardinals and Reds, 36-19 against everyone else. Woof.
Also, god I hate mid-inning pitching changes. I hate them more and more with every passing day. I can tolerate them when there are a bunch of other games I can switch to, but when I'm stuck with only one game they fill me with the urge to murder and pillage.
No manager should ever be permitted to use three pitchers to pitch to three batters. There is no excuse for it. Managers and players alike need to quit dicking around and play baseball.
3. Phils score 7 2 out runs in the 8th on their way to a 9-1 victory, sweeping the Brews in 4.
When the heart of the order is up in a tight situation is exactly the first situation in which you SHOULDN'T allow the manager to dick around with pitching changes. It's a tense moment; make them keep playing baseball.
It's a classic example of something that's a good strategy but bad entertainment. The fans' interests should always come before the managers' interests. Always. Moreover, it's a thing every manager has to deal with equally, if we simply forbid them from changing pitchers mid-inning without a very good reason (meaning "my pitcher has already worked too much in this inning" or "my pitcher is injured").
Cardinal announcers talking about Molina missing the all-star game and possible replacements. Matheny (supposedly)personally called up McGehee and apologized for not picking him. They are wondering if he'll get the pick or if it'll be Matt Adams or someone else?
Posey would seem an obvious choice.
Wait, what series in 2006 was that? The Cardinals were world champions in 2006.
Colby Lewis' BABIP might be close to .500 by now.
LOL cfb, you should know very well that with the Pirates' bullpen involved 4-1 is nowhere near 'blowing open the game'.
So the resistible force is meeting the movable object, is what you're saying.
^ How the hell did that happen? Pirates shifting hijinks?
With 2 hits tonight, Derek Jeter has the 1,000th multi-hit game of his career, behind only Ty Cobb (1,293), Pete Rose (1,225), Stan Musial (1,059), Tris Speaker (1,059) and Hank Aaron (1,046).
