The Freak is feeling better.
Knowing Hunter Pence is loving Hunter Pence.
I was wondering when we’d see The Freak. I guess that’s all we are going to get.
Not many surprises, but Yoenis Cespedes?
A game can go badly pretty quickly. Last night I was watching the game. With the score tied 2-2 the game channel went out on my television.(There was a power outage at the local affiliate.) By the time the picture came back on, the score was 7-2.
We don’t know what will happen in game 3. The Giants could jump out to a 10-run lead in the first. You close out the wins in World Series games as best you can. Herrera just had six days rest. He has another day off today. Using your three best ...Read More...
Serenity now, Hunter Strickland, serenity now.
There is a lot of money on the line for a few of these players.
“I don’t think I can ever live up to matching a wit with Tony La Russa,” quipped Washington. “What I will try to do is put my players in the right position. If my players perform, I don’t have to worry about matching wits; they’ll take care of things.”

It’s the way of things.
Posey is faster than Sandoval.

Pittsburgh Gazette-Times, October 22, 1914:
It’s the MiLBYs!
Edit: Link fixed. Sorry.Jim.
Of course, if these rules end up in place, routines will change.
Giants draw first blood.
The Royals send Yordano Ventura to the hill to try and avoid a 0-2 deficit in the World Series against the Giants, who send Jake Peavy to start. That entire last sentence would not have made sense not that long ago.

I don’t mean what I’m about to write to be a swipe at Williams or the Phils. Here we have a pitcher with 422 IP and an 82 ERA+ from 2012-14. Sure, the FIP is a bit better, probably close to 90. The main thing he has going for him is MLB experience (but not any recent success), a willingness to take the mound whenever the manager wants and, after a lot of ups and downs, some durability.
