Watching the Nats/Reds, and Detweiler is getting no help out of his defense.
I want anyone to threaten DiMaggio just because it's a great story and adds another level of attention to the sport. But it would be fun if it was a Red Sox, and if it was someone like Ortiz who is a joy to all baseball fans in the world.
I'm just saying that if Ortiz was to threaten DiMaggio it'd be even crazier. There would be people screaming that it can't count because there was such a long time between games. Under this argument, it should be noted, the All-Time Consecutive Games Played Streak would be 163, held by whatever player played every game of a season where there was a tie-breaker game.
I thought it would be 165..Maury Wills?
Garret Jones is the Pirates version of Ryan Ludwick(when his career took off for the Cardinals)
I keep thinking he's a youngster still developing, and then look and see he is in his age 32 season.
The IBB is so ####### stupid. I can't stand it and Girardi obviously loves it so much he wants to marry it.
Hey cardsfanboy, there's a way to shut off the commercials. I don't get any - just a blue screen that says 'commercial break.' I don't remember how to do it, since I set it up over a year ago. But it wasn't super complicated.
It may require watching via a computer, though.
Heh, I was going to write "he wants to gay marry it" but I was worried that enough people haven't seen the recent (mediocre) episodes of Community and I would get flack for it. I should have known better.
Hey, Lyle Overbay did something good. Didn't see that coming.
Even if I didn't hate the Yankees, I would love to hear about an IBB fail. I'm almost at the point where I even want the Red Sox to be punished when they give up a stupid IBB.
And it dates back to last July. Gotta love a 9 month hitting streak!
It's not just 11 innings though..Since he was signed and released by Philly he is on his third year with the pirates 102 ip, where he has actually earned the right to close with a 1.124 whip, 33.7 k% (12.7 k/9) and has improved his walk rate also. It's save to say that Grilli is a quality reliever right now. But when the Phillies released him, there was nothing on his resume to suggest he would be remotely this good.
Meh. AJ Burnett has been pretty decent since going to Pittsburgh too. Some guys do better in the low-pressure environments. And sometimes, a random reliever will figure something out for a year or two. It doesn't mean you can ever see it coming.
Still, AA looks like a good guy to have to get you back to the playoffs again, even if this won't be the year.
Me too. It's the worst move in baseball and somehow it is becoming more prevalent than it has ever been.
I feel for you man. Every time it looks like the Jays are going to have a break through season, there are an absurd amount of injuries and underperformances. It's got to be really frustrating. Still, AA looks like a good guy to have to get you back to the playoffs again, even if this won't be the year.
It begins ... Jed Lowrie scratched with right neck strain. Both Rosales and Søgård start.
Rick Ankiel is 0-3 today, but none of them are strikeouts!
Right neck strain? At least his left neck is still doing okay!
Speaking as somebody who has had a right neck strain, that still sometimes flares back up: gfy!
Detwiler against some guy named Tony Cingrani.
A;so, now that Lackey is out of the game, I can finally take credit for reverse-jinxing him. At the time, early in the second, he had given up 1R, 2H, 2BB with 16 strikes to 16 balls. Since then he got through the 6th inning, no runs, no walks, 3 hits with 40 strikes and 9 balls.
I don't know. Those clowns in Seattle and Cleveland have kept their jobs forever and they have one playoff appearance in something like 10-12 total seasons. Yeah, the Jays crapped out this year, but they could conceivably still be a contender next year and it's not they were rolling in playoff appearances before AA shows up. He might get canned, but I don't think it is a given.
I can finally take credit for reverse-jinxing him.
He didn't even look as bad as the results in the first inning though. The umpire wasn't giving him any borderline calls, which resulted in the walks and the run scoring. His stuff looked pretty good all day, though his command is still not 100% coming back from TJS.
Sacrifice by Shelby. Between the intentional walk and the sacrifice(by non-pitchers) I much more prefer the sacrifice.
Cardinals look completely lackluster and impotent today, after the same last yesterday.
And to think I thought they'd be an offensive juggernaut.
Looking at the season to date reliever stats.... and I have to ask, what is going on with Philly? As a team they have had 9 save situations(note:remember save situations is save and hold opportunities) this year.... the league average is 21... Have they been getting big wins? It's not like they have a horrible record.
Just glancing over their wins, seems to be a combination of big wins, late wins, and having Lee and Halladay go 8+ when they have it going, plus a CG from Kyle Kendrick.
The Phillies relievers have allowed something like 450 out of 451 inherited runners to score, with Chad Durbin accounting for at least 300 of those. That may be a factor.
Excellent PA by Harper. 10 pitch walk.
Stanton had a good day today...guess he got tired of operation shutdown...3 for 4, 2hr, 3runs, 4 rbi...
