Giants retract their request after Lincecum's 2nd hit of the game
Hey, you said you checked out 2 months ago!
It will be interesting to see what the Angels do this winter. Do they open the checkbook again?
So I suppose a 14-1 beatdown manages to fully expiate the 11-0 humiliation from Friday?
Just saw the highlight of Miggy getting tossed. What the hell was that?
Go #### the ############# ##### you ####### root for.
I can't make all these out...but I like it!
I know I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and maybe the defense is that awesome but I struggle to see a mvp when said player is hitting .258/.310/.399
Brandon Phillips may be the modern rabbit maranville
all of them.
only quarter joking
That Dick's Sporting Goods endless pre-snap commercial makes me hate football even more than I did before I ever saw it.
Also, ESPN is simply not letting Buster Olney shut up.
Benefit of not watching an ESPN broadcast is that I don't have to deal with that.
double plays are the cards one offensive flaw. they lead the league and I don't see a way to cut down on the frequency unless mike starts having them bunt a lot more
ESPN announcers just said that the cardinals can go hitless in their next 237 at bats with RISP and still lead the league. THat can't be right.
The Cardinals could go 113 RISP at-bats without a hit and still be batting .300.
It would help a bit if they moved Carpenter out of the leadoff spot and put one of their 5,000 RHB groundball machines there instead (not that I'm complaining about the RHB groundball machines). That also would help protect against LOOGYs when Matheny decides to double-switch Descalso into the pitcher's spot, which he loves to do.
Carpenter doesn't have a platoon split.
When the Braves and the Cardinals play each other, no one wins. Except the terrorists, I suppose.
Yes, he does. He hasn't shown it yet, but he will. That's simple optics.
I want my .400 obp player leading off.
a loogy by definition is an inferior pitcher who relies on their performance to work because of batters with bigger than the standard split.
It's sad seeing Martin Landau being used as a prop in an ad for a low-rent product like Mike's Hard Lemonade.
So my guess is that they added a 100 and it's probably 137 not 237. (.288 is what the Tigers have).
but given a choice I would never choose to drink beer
Let the other team waste their Loogy's against us in a futile effort. Only Jay and Adams struggle against lefties. Neither Descalso or Carpenter have a platoon split.
The standard LOOGY isn't so much inferior as he is a one-pitch pitcher. In particular, he relies on a slider. I don't care who you are, a slider from a same-side pitcher is hard to differentiate from a fastball.
Guys like Descalso, Carpenter have so far proven that they have the minimum platoon disadvantage.
Hey, did you hear that Allen Craig is the leading contender for MVP this year?
Words which could only be written by a man who had never tried anything by Unibroue. I recommend La Fin du Monde, Raftman, or maybe a U Blonde if you want something lighter and sweeter.
Pursuant to my earlier analogy, this feels like the Nazis winning the battle of Stalingrad.
Have to make fun of the Braves lineup. How many teams would have the number two (average) hitter in the league batting seventh...behind a .204 hitter.
Of course it's working for them in this series I guess, but that is one whacked up batting order they have.
Simmons isn't hitting lead-off. I'm happy.
Or is this comment in reference to something ESPN is saying?
The cardinals are finding it's not so easy to get outs when the umpires don't give them to you.
Cannot tell if 198 is trolling, or just written by someone who is really dumb.
