Wow... gutless is the last thing I would call a Cubs fan. You have to be pretty gutsy to stick by that team after all these years. I can see other words being used against them, but gutless is far from any word to be associated with a cub fan. Naive... desperate... sad.... drunk..(mind you... that isn't a negative thing)... pitiful...loyal... etc... those I can see...
Baby Pedro looking good. Pretty excited about the rotation possibilities next year. Until everyone gets hurt, at least.
When you get 18 wins a year, not that hard.
CFB, do you do tower climbing work?
Yep. Strauss tweeted today he has heard a rumor of a long term SS fix, but then didn't say what it was, the ####.
Did Soriano just A. make a leaping home run robbing catch and B. act dejected to deke the Orioles into thinking it was a homer?
Yankees end the Orioles season two years in a row.
I wonder if Mo ever thinks to himself, "I'm too old for this ####."
Jake gives the win to Rivera. Good call.
10.17(c) The official scorer shall not credit as the winning pitcher a relief pitcher who is ineffective in a brief appearance, when at least one succeeding relief pitcher pitches effectively in helping his team maintain its lead. In such a case, the official scorer shall credit as the winning pitcher the succeeding relief pitcher who was most effective, in the judgment of the official scorer.
OK, they must have updated them since 15 minutes ago.
It's legal to give him a win, but that takes the save away.
Lynn and Kelly look like guys who could be Suppan level pitchers(and that isn't an insult) for several years...if not better. Of course I think it's going to be hilarious that Lynn will hit 50 career wins next year.
So as it stands right now, the top three teams in the NL East all get to play at least 163 games. That's strong.
THat's a pretty silly comparison. Suppan struck out 4.9 batters per inning, over his career, with a best-ever 5.8 in a 78 inning season at age 23, while walking 3.1 batters per inning. Lynn K's around 9 and walks just over 3. Lynn is far closer to Verlander than he is suppan (verlander is 8.4/2.8/0.8 K/BB/HR per 9 for his career, Lynn's at 9.1/3.3/0.8)
Not really SOP to pull a win from a relief pitcher who gives up only 1 run in his innings work. Perhaps this is an effort to keep Rivera from overtaking Johnson for the league lead in Saves.
When I look at pitchers. I look ate era+ first and foremost, it's the only thing I truly care about when judging a starting pitcher.
