4-20-2013 OMNICHATTER

Submitting this a bit early… but, anyway, it’s Saturday. It’ll be the first game at Fenway since the Marathon and Friday’s drama, and the day will also see a LAD-BAL doubleheader, Scott Kazmir’s return, and Posey catching Lincecum.

Yeah, Trout hitting sophomore slump, Harper not.

How are you feeling the new half-season, GB?

I can't tell if I'm biased against Moffat, or it's truly just really very boring.
   203. cardsfanboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 06:51 PM (#4420699)
Okay, hour and a half until Doctor Who... what game to watch until then...


I'm about to watch it right now.... :)
   204. Tom Nawrocki Posted: April 20, 2013 at 06:51 PM (#4420700)
Trout is hitting .304/.351/.522. That's a heck of a sophomore slump.
   205. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 06:59 PM (#4420703)

He means sophomore slump in the beard-growing department.

#204 That's an Alex Rios type season. People expecting 10 WAR will think he's slumping.
   207. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 07:00 PM (#4420705)
For Mets and Rays fans: Scott Kazmir makes his Indians debut tonight.

The Mets are useless to me.

Okay, not great. Like before, the acting and dialog is good and fun, but the stories have been meh, although "Cold War" was definitely an improvement over Akahten.

So far the new half season has been boring. It's early and the clearly best stories are being held off for the last 4 episodes. (which we'll get a Strax episode, a journey into the Tardis episode, and a Neil Gaiman written cybermen episode...along with the finale, whatever that is about) I think the wi-fi story had potential, but they got to cutesy with it. Apparently I was the only person on Earth that liked The Rings of Akhaten...while Cold War was trying to be too many things.

I liked Akhaten, and the music story and score quite a bit; but the treacly ending positively ruined it for me. Cold War wasted David Warner and unless I was mistaken, nothing freaking happened.

nice double play by crew by the sound of things

(have to listen to mlbaudio since I am on the road)
   213. cardsfanboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 07:23 PM (#4420721)
Looks like Holliday and Beltran have joined the team. Now hopefully the rest of the players don't forget how to play.
   214. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: April 20, 2013 at 07:27 PM (#4420724)
Cold War had Davos Seaworth and Edmure Tully on the Red October! It was great!
   215. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 07:27 PM (#4420725)
Why is McDonald nibbling to Simmons? Make him swing the bat!

edit: Oh, that's why! He wanted to walk in the first run of the game. Alrighty then!
   216. Gamingboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 07:28 PM (#4420726)
Strax episode


Seriously, since Torchwood is basically in hibernation and SJA died with Lis Sladen, I'm wondering why there isn't a "Adventure of Vastra, Jenny and Strax" spin-off.

Honestly, I'm surprised and disappointed that the BBC hasn't just cashed in on the Doctor Who gravy train with dozens of spin offs... You have the Doctor's daughter that set up a perfect recipe for a tween level series. A cross between the first couple of years of Buffy, Kim Possible and Doctor Who. You have Strax and his two sidekicks. You can return to the first two seasons of Torchwood roots(add in Martha and Mickey since everyone else has been killed off, or make it a U.N.I.T. show with the Brigaders daughter) Heck even that stupid Pirate episode could be turned into a spinoff.

Betancourt playing 3rd tonight and makes a bare-handed pickup of a slow roller and gets the runner

what is happening here????

Phil Humber facing Scott Kazmir tonight. Humber got bombed in the first inning and Kazmir is going to have a huge lead to start the game.

No truth to the rumor that Jae Seo is coming in to relieve Humber.
   220. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: April 20, 2013 at 07:35 PM (#4420732)
nice catch in foul ground by braun apparently

Hugh Bonneville is busy.


Also, I am extremely disappointed the Orioles and Dodgers couldn't bother pulling the old 1966 throwbacks out for this series.
   223. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 07:43 PM (#4420738)
Is any Comcast customer having crappy connectivity to BBTF.org tonight? The last couple of nights I've tested very bad ping times (160msec) while from my co-lo site in Dallas it is trouble free. I'm curious if it's just down here in the backwater of southeast Florida or something more widespread.
   224. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 07:45 PM (#4420741)
J. Upton's first AB he struck out with a horrible swing reaching low and away. His second AB he drew the walk. My hopes for the Barves self-destructing were premature.
   225. Gamingboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 07:48 PM (#4420742)
Chris Davis sends a ball helluva far into the batter's eye. 1-1.

Chris Davis sends a ball helluva far into the batter's eye. 1-1.
484 feet according to the announcers. 11th-longest ever in OPACY, 3rd-longest hit by an Oriole.

Guy's got some major power.

He's aiming to win your heart, Harveys. Pretty soon he'll mail you a dozen roses.

Cliff lee is being the bizarro Cliff Lee. Three walks in one inning.
   229. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:02 PM (#4420747)
Dan Uggla replaced in the 4th inning by Ramiro Peña, no reason given yet.

The Indians are currently beating the Astros 13-0. The top of the second is not over yet.
   231. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:07 PM (#4420753)
A. McCutchen steals 3B standing up. Made it look like a walk down the beach.

Then Gaby Sanchez pops out to end that threat. sigh.

This is Scott Kazmir. Let's see if he can stay healthy for 5 innings.

Hm. Good point.

Marte might have robbed Justin Upton of a HR. can't quite tell if it would have gone out or hit the top of the fence.
   237. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:12 PM (#4420760)
It's feast or famine for B.J. Upton: his bat never touched the ball in his first 2 ABs. He just easily golfed a pitch to LF way back, way back, WAY BACK, CAUGHT by Marte's glove just above the top of the wall.
   238. cardsfanboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:14 PM (#4420763)
Not a bad inning..4 runs thanks to the 3 walks from Cliff Lee.
   239. Eric J can SABER all he wants to Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:16 PM (#4420765)
Did Marte rob both Uptons in the same inning, or are we suffering from Upton confusion?
   240. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:17 PM (#4420766)
per MLB Gameday: "Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla left the game due to an injured leg. None out."
   241. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:18 PM (#4420767)

If it was Justin then he must have gone on a seriously bulimic weight loss program in a half inning. It was B. J.
   242. DA Baracus Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:22 PM (#4420768)

Upton confusion. Authorities believe alcohol was involved.
   243. Eric J can SABER all he wants to Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:27 PM (#4420771)
Upton confusion. Authorities believe alcohol was involved.

On ESPN's scoreboard page, it lists the players who've homered in each game - but only by last name. So on Opening Day, it showed Upton (1) for the Braves, which was unhelpful.

Of course, at the moment it looks like it'll be pretty easy to tell which Upton goes deep at any given time for the rest of the year.

Not so fast my friend. BJ can hit them too. 28 last year, two other 20+ seasons.
   245. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:32 PM (#4420774)
I haven't researched this at all, but at a glance it seems that there are quite a few teams this year sporting multiple players with the same last names. With the number of Latin names this starts out as a big DUH! But then you have two Uptons and two Johnsons on the Braves.

I'll see what B-Ref says while the Pirates fritter away another game in front of me.
   246. Edmundo got dem ol' Kozma blues again mama Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:34 PM (#4420776)
Not a bad inning..4 runs thanks to the 3 walks from Cliff Lee.

Helped by Bizarro Chase Utley breaking the wrong way on a ground ball.
   247. cardsfanboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:35 PM (#4420777)
Beltran homers...he's making up for a slow start in just the past few days.
   248. DA Baracus Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:42 PM (#4420778)
Paul Maholm finally gives up a run. At least it was due to a McCutcheon RBI double.
   249. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:43 PM (#4420779)
Mister McCutchen hits a monster double that juuuuuust missed being a HR by about 6 inches to score Tabatha, tied 1-1 in the 6th. It bounced off the facing of the grandstand in rightest field.
   250. Russlan is fond of Dillon Gee Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:44 PM (#4420781)
Beltran homers...he's making up for a slow start in just the past few days.

He might be good enough to play 3 times a week.
   251. DA Baracus Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:44 PM (#4420782)
Cleveland 15 Houston 6. A comeback is a foot. Kazmir is at 72 pitches in the 3rd inning.

HR Pirates. 3-1.
   252. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:44 PM (#4420784)
Maholm runs out of pixie dust.
   253. AJMcCringleberry Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:45 PM (#4420785)
This is Scott Kazmir. Let's see if he can stay healthy for 5 innings.

He's still healthy, but unlikely to last 5 innings anyway. Still in the third inning, 6 runs allowed and over 70 pitches thrown.
   254. cardsfanboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:45 PM (#4420786)
Mayberry breaks up the Lynn no hitter.

I just glanced at the standings....how the f*ck do the Rockies have a 12-4 record.

   256. AJMcCringleberry Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:49 PM (#4420791)
how the f*ck do the Rockies have a 12-4 record.

Somehow, their pitching hasn't been shitty.
   257. Tom Nawrocki Posted: April 20, 2013 at 08:57 PM (#4420795)
Their bullpen has been unreal. Of their top four relievers by IP, the highest ERA is 2.89.

Scott Kazmir has given up six runs to the HOUSTON ASTROS lineup in three innings despite being staked to a 16-run lead.

Something tells me he's not really major-league caliber anymore.

EDIT: 18-6 now. Wow. Poor Astros. And their record is only one game worse than Cleveland's!
   260. cardsfanboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:03 PM (#4420799)
I thought that the Rockies were pre-season consensus as one of the four teams everyone was sure was going to suck (Marlins, Astros, Cubs, Rockies---with arguments for Mess, Indians, Twins and Padres)
   261. Baldrick Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:03 PM (#4420800)
MLB record is 30 runs...
   262. cardsfanboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:04 PM (#4420802)
Wow..in the 4th inning and Swisher is already 4 for 4.
   263. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:05 PM (#4420803)
I just realized, the starting pitcher for Houston was Philip Humber. He recorded only ONE OUT in the game before being pulled.

Philip Humber threw a perfect game last year.
   264. cardsfanboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:05 PM (#4420804)

I would have had Twins, Astros and Marlins as sure to suck and would have had the Padres there if I'd known better who was on the team. Indians don't project nearly as badly as the other.
   266. Random Transaction Generator Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:09 PM (#4420807)
I wonder if Swisher has a shot at the record for hits in a 9-inning game (7)...

The last time someone got 6 hits in a 9-inning game was Adrian Gonzalez, back in 2009.

I don't pay attention to the AL as much, so I was somewhat guessing. I'm never sold on Cleveland. They are the Anti-White Sox in that everyone seems to predict them to do better than they actually will. The Astros and Marlins are probably going to be borderline historically bad. I had assumed that the Rockies and Padres were going to get hammered by being in the best division in the NL. I think I allow the Mets fans around here to affect my opinion on the Mets. They don't look horrible, but they make it seem like they are the bad news bears(same with Cubs fans)
   270. cardsfanboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:13 PM (#4420811)

Manny Machado delivers, and now the Orioles have busted the game wide open.
   273. Tom Nawrocki Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:18 PM (#4420815)
The Rockies lost 98 games last year, and figured to improve on that if only because (a) the rotation couldn't possibly be as much of a disaster as it was last year, and (b) Tulowitzki was likely to play more than 47 games this year.
   274. JJ1986 Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:19 PM (#4420816)
Kazmir's out.
   275. cardsfanboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:19 PM (#4420817)

The Mets and Cubs, in theory, should have the resources to be consistently among the top contenders in baseball. They are not very well organizations.
   277. Tom Nawrocki Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:19 PM (#4420819)

Oh yeah derr, they have to be the lead back. I've been drinking.
   282. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:36 PM (#4420826)
Well, that was a disappointment. Only 3 teams have more than one set of guys sharing last names. I used the 40-man roster so there might be a surprise or two on here. It's just for grits and shiggles anyway.

Braves - Upton, Johnson
Nationals - Zimmerman(n) [why count spelling when the immigration enumerators couldn't 100 years ago?]
Phillies - Young
Cardinals - Carpenter
Reds - Rodriguez
Pirates - McDonald, Sanchez(3)
Cubs - Jackson, Villanueva [didn't see that last one coming]
Brewers - Gonzalez
Dodgers - Ellis
Orioles - Johnson
Tigers - Cabrera
White Sox - Danks
Rangers - Beltre
Mariners - Saunders
Astros - Martinez

I'm surprised to see so few duplications of Latin names like Gonzalez, Rodriguez, Ramirez. I guess being in south Florida biases me towards noticing them more or some such silliness.

If the Nats could acquire Donovan Solano and "Mike" Stanton from the Marlins, Soriano from the Cubs, and then coax Andy LaRoche and Mike Stanton (the pitcher--no not THAT one, the other one) out of retirement they would clean up in this meaningless contest.
   283. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:37 PM (#4420827)
¡Los Piratas gano Los Barvos!
   284. Dan Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:40 PM (#4420830)
Interesting. Nats calling up Rendon with Zimmerman going on the DL. That could be fun.
   285. cardsfanboy Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:40 PM (#4420831)
Indians could only muster 1 run in the 4th...and Swisher struck out.
   286. The Yankee Clapper Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:43 PM (#4420834)
Only 3 teams have more than one set of guys sharing last names.

Could be a few more sets of relatives - unacknowledged bastards may litter the MLB landscape. See Garvey, Steve.
   287. JJ1986 Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:45 PM (#4420836)
Andy LaRoche is still active and the Nats need a third baseman for awhile. There's a chance to add one right there.
   288. Austin Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:49 PM (#4420838)
That's crazy... in the process of scoring 19 runs, the Indians have left eight runners in scoring position in five innings. In some sense, they "should" have scored 21 or 22 runs by now.
   289. boteman Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:50 PM (#4420839)
Longoria with the shouldering maneuver just plastered Matt Joyce to the turf. Joyce is wincing a bit as he takes his fielding position once again. OUCH!

edit: And just now Ryan Roberts does his finest Gaby Sanchez impersonation, dropping a pop fly behind 2B. ¡Ay caramba!
   290. Tom Nawrocki Posted: April 20, 2013 at 09:52 PM (#4420841)
Home run for Michael Cuddyer puts the Rockies up 4-0 in the sixth. Jorge de la Rosa has thrown six shutout innings, extending his scoreless streak to 17 IP.

That's crazy... in the process of scoring 19 runs, the Indians have left eight runners in scoring position in five innings. In some sense, they "should" have scored 21 or 22 runs by now.


I don't know I would imagine that the percentage of risp scored is probably around 40% for the major leagues...looks like they are doing better than that rate tonight.

Swisher with an outside chance of batting in the 6th(needs one more player to reach base and no dp)

Edit: nevermind. Dp

I wonder if I somehow signed up for MLB.com this year.(I don't remember doing it, and I haven't drank alcohol in over a year) I'm able to watch the hou/cle game...just tried it because "why not" and it's working.

Walt Weiss pinch-hits for a noticeably pissed Jorge de la Rosa in the bottom of the sixth. Arizona and Colorado head to the seventh, with the Rockies up 4-0.

Question: Obviously, Kazmir can't get the win... but who holds the modern record for most earned runs given up in a win?

Well, sure, they've done much better overall with RISP tonight than would normally be expected. But it's still interesting that they've stranded so many runners on second and third tonight (now up to nine, with only two stranded on first).

I had also been kind of hoping that this would be one of those rare games when a team scored in every inning, but then Brantley and Aviles had to team up to ruin the opportunity.

For what it's worth, I tried opening the Indians-Astros game just now, but it just brought me to the MLB.TV payment screen. Maybe you did buy it.

O's win.

Cody Ross just got tossed for throwing his bat after taking a called third strike to end the top of the seventh. Seventh-inning stretch time, still 4-0 Rockies.

MLB.anything is like the mob: I think once you sign up they automatically renew you until you cry "UNCLE!"

Thanks... I must have. I know I was close to signing up one time, but backed off and decided to wait for the next job(I have a travelling job, so was going to wait until I was out of St Louis to watch my team) I guess I went further than I thought.

Andy LaRoche is still active and the Nats need a third baseman for awhile. There's a chance to add one right there.

Wow, Andy is 29 years old. It seems like I've heard his name bouncing around forever so I assumed he washed out and retired ages ago. B-Ref sez he signed as a free agent with the Blue Jays, I assume that's a minor league free agent? It says he's arbitration-eligible this year.
