HOW WILL THE METS LOSE TODAY?!
   2. Man o' Schwar Posted: August 29, 2018 at 01:59 PM (#5735596)
Hopefully they'll lose in duplicate.
   3. Zonk qualifies as an invasive species Posted: August 29, 2018 at 02:04 PM (#5735601)
One down, one to go.
   4. Nasty Nate Posted: August 29, 2018 at 02:06 PM (#5735602)
deGrom's ERA was 1.71 before yesterday ... and he lowered it. Of course, he didn't get a Win. He could end up with a Madduxian ERA and over 200 innings but single-digit Wins!
   5. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: August 29, 2018 at 02:40 PM (#5735643)
Bad things happen when you won’t throw strikes
   6. Spahn Insane Posted: August 29, 2018 at 02:41 PM (#5735645)
That was extremely predictable. However, let me beat the ever-optimistic Moses to the punch in declaring that four runs won't win this game.
   7. Spahn Insane Posted: August 29, 2018 at 02:43 PM (#5735648)
Though I suppose beating the Mets in the Syndergaard and deGrom starts but losing the Vargas start would be ever-so-Cublike.
   8. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: August 29, 2018 at 02:50 PM (#5735657)
Just once, I'd like to see Zobrist shake his fist at the sky after making an out.

As great as he has been, BRef has Nola with a significant WAR advantage. I'm guessing it;s b/c the Phillies' D sucks.
   10. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: August 29, 2018 at 02:55 PM (#5735664)
Bote looked like a total schmuck in that at-bat, flailing at a ball way outside and then watching strike three cruise down the heart of the plate.
   11. Zonk qualifies as an invasive species Posted: August 29, 2018 at 02:56 PM (#5735665)
I guess Mills was concerned about the implications of forcing the Cubs into a 7 man rotation.
   12. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: August 29, 2018 at 03:02 PM (#5735671)
Damn right, Spahn. This is to 6, not 7.
   13. Bote Man Posted: August 29, 2018 at 03:14 PM (#5735682)
Listening to Cubs radio (while cooking up some hammy Gouda grits for lunch...YUMMM!)

1) After the Mets had loaded the bases, Ron Coomer said something like, "They have to pitch Frazier verrrry carefully here..." WHACK! Grand salami.

2) There was some ad, perhaps for some cell phone or something, during the last half of which the guy just rattled off a whole bunch of code numbers like someone's supposed to copy that crap. Probably had to for compliance, but a really bad look (sound).
   14. Spahn Insane Posted: August 29, 2018 at 03:15 PM (#5735684)
This is to 6, not 7.

Eh?
   15. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: August 29, 2018 at 03:29 PM (#5735700)
I agree with post 6, not 7.

Nice throw.
   16. Spahn Insane Posted: August 29, 2018 at 04:03 PM (#5735739)
I agree with post 6, not 7.

Got it. Well, par for the course.

Nola has one unearned run, DeGrom has 7 that figures into the equation also.

Schwarber makes a catch, then chases away a flock of pigeons walking around in front of him. "There is room for only one bird in left field, and that is the SCHWARBIRD!!"
   19. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: August 29, 2018 at 04:48 PM (#5735773)
Kintzlering.
   20. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: August 29, 2018 at 04:51 PM (#5735779)
Q: Who the f*** can still give up a triple to Jose Reyes in 2018?

(Brandon Kintzler bounces up and down in his chair, raising his hand and waving it around.)
   21. Brian C Posted: August 29, 2018 at 04:54 PM (#5735781)
However, let me beat the ever-optimistic Moses to the punch in declaring that four runs won't win this game.

Eight runs, however, probably will.

But, it is the Mets, and they love nothing more than losing games they ought to win, so we shall see. Let's just say that I'm not optimistic, but if I was at the game, I wouldn't leave early.
   22. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 05:00 PM (#5735786)
I knew I liked the Mets for a reason... :)
   23. Bote Man Posted: August 29, 2018 at 05:00 PM (#5735787)
(Brandon Kintzler bounces up and down in his chair, raising his hand and waving it around.)

There must have been some magic
in the Oakland bullpen mound,
for when Nats pitchers were traded there
they remembered how to pound (the strike zone).

In other words, people are raving today about Shawn Kelley, how much of a shutdown guy he is, how he came in with runners in scoring position and got out of the inning. This is not the same Shawn Kelley that I remember on the Nats; codename "Bomber", "Fuel to the fire", etc. Ditto for Blake Treinen. But with Kintzler in Chicago...maybe it's not something wrong with the Nats, but something very right with the Athletics??

Now, Perennial Bashlor for the Mets.
   24. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: August 29, 2018 at 05:05 PM (#5735789)
I hope they keep Kintzler in there to rest the position players' arms.

EDIT: Jesus. Unless the dipsh*t takes out the infielders while he's at it.
   25. Bote Man Posted: August 29, 2018 at 05:22 PM (#5735801)
If Alex Bregman ever comes to a sudden stop this Houston TV team is going halfway up his a$$. It has been non-stop "BREGMAN IS TEH BESTESTEST!!!" since I tuned over there in the 8th inning. Pretty soon I expect them to announce that Bregman has cured the common cold and they will be throwing him a parade. Guy looks like he goes to KKK meetings.
   26. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: August 29, 2018 at 05:26 PM (#5735808)
Guy looks like he goes to KKK meetings.
Remember when this would reliably be considered an insult?

EDIT: Although Bregman is Jewish, so he might not be particularly welcome.

Sounds like the Cardinal announcers in regards to Mike Shildt. I mean Matheny must have touched them in inappropriate spots to help engender this level of worship from the announcers.
   28. Khrushin it bro Posted: August 29, 2018 at 06:20 PM (#5735839)
With good reason! That guy is the Shildt!
   29. BDC Posted: August 29, 2018 at 06:25 PM (#5735845)
97° at the Ballpark, I’ve seen worse.

Dodgers at Rangers tonight, and likely the last game I will see this year that holds playoff implications. (In Sept. I only have tickets for the Angels and the Rays.) Dodgers’ lineup sure has changed since the World Series.
   30. TomH Posted: August 29, 2018 at 06:36 PM (#5735852)
TRIVIA for tonight:
I "lead" the AL in being caught stealing. And I only have 10 successful steals this year. Who am I, this blundering baserunner?
   31. BDC Posted: August 29, 2018 at 06:53 PM (#5735867)
Am I Rougned Odor? Just a guess, he’s somewhere in the range of 10 steals with a bunch of CS.
   32. TomH Posted: August 29, 2018 at 06:57 PM (#5735873)
BINGO!!!
   33. Rennie's Tenet Posted: August 29, 2018 at 06:57 PM (#5735874)
Pirates carry Sean Rodriguez through a .167 season, then DFA him three days before the rosters expand.
   34. BDC Posted: August 29, 2018 at 06:59 PM (#5735875)
Odor is kind of a wild man. He has become a pretty good fielder, though, both by observation and metrics. A crazy hot/cold hitter.
   35. Bote Man Posted: August 29, 2018 at 07:01 PM (#5735879)
Pirates carry Sean Rodriguez through a .167 season, then DFA him three days before the rosters expand.

They're doing him a favor, so he still has a few days to catch on with a playoff-bound team who has a roster spot to waste.
   36. BDC Posted: August 29, 2018 at 07:20 PM (#5735887)
Must be nine fans here in Dodger gear for every fan in Rangers’. Luckily they’ll all leave after the sixth inning to beat the traffic ...
   37. Bote Man Posted: August 29, 2018 at 07:39 PM (#5735892)
Evan Drellich @EvanDrellich
Left wrist contusion for David Price. To be evaluated further. 1/132
   38. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: August 29, 2018 at 07:43 PM (#5735896)
Price out after 3 innings of work, Sox down 3-2.
He threw 47 pitches, is he injured? Anyone???

I'm only following on the gameday as I am at work...
   39. 'Spos Posted: August 29, 2018 at 07:59 PM (#5735906)
is he injured?

Hit by a comebacker on the left wrist, apparently.
   40. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:09 PM (#5735913)
#39, thx for the update
   41. BDC Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:13 PM (#5735919)
I was complaining awhile back about missing Machado when the Orioles came in, not remembering I’d see him with the Dodgers. Mike Minor strikes him out in the first.
   42. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:19 PM (#5735922)
"Cardinals have won 8 out of 14 against the Pirates".... this was said by McLaughlin as a point of pride or something, and it felt like he worded it that way to make the record appear more impressive than saying Cardinals are 8 and 6 against the Pirates.
   43. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:21 PM (#5735924)
The Red Sox really scuffling right now, thankfully pale house helping them out by leading NY 3-0. Would really like them to overcome this 4-2 deficit and right the ship...
   44. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:36 PM (#5735935)
They're doing him a favor, so he still has a few days to catch on with a playoff-bound team who has a roster spot to waste.
Who not only has a roster spot to waste, but is for some reason willing to have Sean Rodriguez hanging around for the whole stretch drive and possibly into the postseason.
   45. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:40 PM (#5735939)
Molina with a well hit ball for a double.... Still running like crap though.
   46. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:42 PM (#5735941)
Ricky Horton with a good comment, when informed he had a higher ERA against the Expos than the Cubs, he said "but you have to realize there was a currency exchange issue there."
   47. BDC Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:43 PM (#5735943)
Huge cheers for a Cody Bellinger HR. This is like 15 years ago when you’d come out to the Ballpark & it would be packed with Red Sox or Yankees or other visiting fans.
   48. Howie Menckel Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:50 PM (#5735953)
Stanton up with the bases loaded and 2 outs in the 5th, Yankees trail Pale Hose, 3-1.

ball gets past the catcher - and Torres gets thrown out at home to end the inning.

Stanton will have no ducks on the pond when he bats in the 6th.

Torres chose poorly.
   49. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:50 PM (#5735954)
Why can't the Twins, O's and Sox just STFU ?!

Just ######' join the Trump crap !

A raccoon had taken up residence in the rafters at Oriole Park. This just in:

Baltimore Orioles @Orioles
Our recent visitor [pictured] has been escorted out of the ballpark, unharmed. Though we may bring her back if the score doesn’t change soon…
   52. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:54 PM (#5735960)
There has to be a firedevil thrower somewhere in MLB and Minor League Crap League, better than CC !
Pretty sure !
   53. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: August 29, 2018 at 08:58 PM (#5735963)
Sox keep coming back. The pitching stinks right now, but they are scoring runs(and the Marlins pitching is poor) so they've now tied it up at 5-5 with 2 on and still no outs...
   54. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:00 PM (#5735966)
Mookie is back! Double brings in 2 more, 7-5 Sox...
   55. Bote Man Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:05 PM (#5735972)
Jesse Dougherty @dougherty_jesse
Gio Gonzalez was up 0-2 on Wilson Ramos and ends up walking him. Next batter is Carlos Santana and he hits a two-out grand slam to put the Phillies up 6-5 in the bottom of the fifth.

Anybody want a lefty starting pitcher, slightly used??
   56. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:09 PM (#5735979)
The ######' Red Sucks are even more unpopular than the arsehole CUBS, and that sucks badly.
So it goes.
   57. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:11 PM (#5735982)
Gleyber is a #####.Grow up, be a MAN !
   58. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:11 PM (#5735984)
Sox realise they are playing Marlins, just pouring it on now, up 9-5. Benni sacrifices? and Holt triples, then single from Xander
   59. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:14 PM (#5735985)
Nunez just piles on, another single brings in a run, up 10-5. The terribly unpopular Red Sox are looking good now!
   60. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:15 PM (#5735988)
Sox realise they are ###### pieces of crap ! Lose all remaining games.
   61. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:17 PM (#5735991)
The Yankees say THANK YOU to another WWII idiot. When does this crap stop ?!
   62. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:18 PM (#5735993)
WTF Marlins !
   63. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:21 PM (#5735997)
Horton talking about why Carpenter bats first instead of third... and he makes good points for Carpenter first, but makes the idiotic argument that the number three batter better be an rbi guy.
Obviously you want "Rbi" guys at the top of the order but the third batter is by far your least important batter among the top four, yet baseball seems to think that this is the case.


and as if on queue, Molina hits into a double play. That is the issue that needs to be approached. Bat Molina third not second. The number three batter faces more pa per season than anyone else on the team with two outs... a double play machine should be in that spot.
   64. BDC Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:31 PM (#5736004)
Six IP, 2 runs for Mike Minor - a quality start, right? but the Rangers are being shut out.
   65. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:32 PM (#5736005)
Hey #62, White Sox 4, NY 1.... how's that working for you?
   66. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:33 PM (#5736006)
Sorry, had to engage the troll just once...
   67. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:44 PM (#5736012)
Matt Carpenter left the game with nausea....or if you read between the lines from the announcers comments...maybe diarrhea....


Okay, that was an unusual play....man on second, sac bunt attempt by the pirates and the first baseman went to third, the third baseman of the Cardinals realized that they had no chance at that play and fielded it, and immediately threw it to first to beat the batter by maybe an inch on the force play.
   68. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:47 PM (#5736013)
Matt Carpenter left the game with nausea....or if you read between the lines from the announcers comments...maybe diarrhea....


I was more then happy to accept the first excuse...my life has NOT been enriched by knowing the possible truth.

However playing under those conditions would be a bit uncomfortable to say the least...
   69. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:51 PM (#5736016)
Mikolas is no longer a legit Cy Young candidate, but I'm still surprised at how good he has been even after word has gotten out about him. (and yes I'm saying this even though he has been 'lit' up his last couple of starts)
   70. BDC Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:53 PM (#5736018)
I just saw Yasiel Puig hit a triple. Somebody tell SBB, he’ll be delighted :)
   71. Howie Menckel Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:55 PM (#5736020)
Pujols done for season

so stuck on:
6th in HR 633 (Mays 660)
7th in RBI 1982 (Gehrig 1985)
10th in Doubles 639 (HWagner 643)
22nd in Runs 1773 (Gehringer 1775)
24th in Hits 3082 (Ichiro! TM 3089)

   72. BDC Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:57 PM (#5736022)
And Puig is out at home on what looked to me like a straight steal attempt with two out and a LHB at the plate. Odd.
   73. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 09:57 PM (#5736023)
Cardinal announcers are assuming that Mikolas will be pinched hit for next inning, which is a pretty safe assumption, and I have yet to figure out Shildt's style, but if the first two batters for the Cardinals makes outs or if you have a one out situation with a man on first or second for Mikolas.... I wouldn't argue against allowing him to bat. 8 hits allowed, but if you look at those 8 hits, only two or three of them were 'well hit'... but ultimately it's just about how comfortable you feel with the pen which is rested and the remaining rotation options... with Gant and Gomber getting the next two starts, you know the pen is going to be heavily used. (and at the same time, with September first coming up, you could use whoever you want and then send them down without having to worry about the 10 day limit)
   74. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 10:00 PM (#5736026)
Mikolas bats, makes an out on the first pitch, I guess he wants to go out to the mound as fast as possible before Shildt changes his mind. (of course he might just be batting for himself since there really is no reason to waste a pinch hitter on a 2 out pinch hit appearance in the fifth, when you only have 2 bench bats available---and the back up catcher)
   75. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 10:04 PM (#5736030)
Chasen Shreve comes in to pitch, his era has been good for the Cardinals, but his fip sucks and from a fan perspective he has pitched more like his fip than his actual era... just not that good for the most part.
   76. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: August 29, 2018 at 10:04 PM (#5736031)
So Mookie says, MVP is mine this year! Breaks out of his funk, going 3 for 4 and a "triple short of the cycle" along with a BB.
Red Sox win their 92nd game.

If you had told me at the start of the season the Red Sox would win 92 games, I would've actually been ok with that. Not totally happy as I would've figured they'd be in the wildcard game, but still 92 wins is pretty good; after only 134 games though it's just kind of surreal.
   77. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 10:06 PM (#5736033)
Good performance by Shreve... 5 pitches... flyout... single... double play...
   78. Bote Man Posted: August 29, 2018 at 10:23 PM (#5736037)
Noted hitter Christian Yelich has hit for the cycle in Cincinnati (which I maintain is spelled wrong) in a 10-10 tied game, top 7th. Observers describe it as "bananas".
   79. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: August 29, 2018 at 10:36 PM (#5736039)
However playing under those conditions would be a bit uncomfortable to say the least...
I assume he was sliding into first, and his pants were gonna burst.
   80. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 29, 2018 at 10:38 PM (#5736041)
Cora said right now they expect Price to pitch but “we’ll see.”
   81. Textbook Editor Posted: August 29, 2018 at 10:48 PM (#5736046)
So... 5 Red Sox batters had 2 hits in that 7th inning (none of them made an out, either). I have to think that's fairly close to a record for number of batters getting 2 hits in the same inning in one game, but have not been able to figure out how to find this out via searching on BBref... (They were 5 consecutive batters as well, which would also seem rare.)

They really need to get EdRod & Wright back and pitching well; the starters are starting to drop like flies, and while the situation was *much* worse in 2011, it doesn't bode well if both Price and Sale are question marks going into the playoffs...
   82. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: August 29, 2018 at 10:52 PM (#5736050)
Has anyone pointed out that Dereck Rodriguez appears to wear a Tim Lincecum wig?

   84. cardsfanboy Posted: August 29, 2018 at 11:00 PM (#5736056)
2-0 going into the bottom of the 8th.... the Cardinals are not the Cubs from a week ago, they can actually score more than 1 run in a game, so this game isn't over yet.
   85. Howie Menckel Posted: August 29, 2018 at 11:06 PM (#5736058)
apparently Benintendi made an out and hit into a DP in that huge Sox inning, so he sort of made all 3 outs. has that ever happened before?
   86. The Yankee Clapper Posted: August 29, 2018 at 11:17 PM (#5736063)
In Age-19 MLB Leaderboard news, the Washington Nationals terrific teenager Juan Soto tied Ken Griffey, Jr. for 4th with his 16th HR tonight, and Ed Kranepool for 10th with his 19th double. Soto's .922 OPS is also first, ahead of Mel Ott by a point.

7 was the record as of 1989.

THE BIG INNING : Reds Get Record 16 Hits, Score 14 Runs in the First

It all started innocently enough. The Cincinnati Reds' leadoff hitter, Mariano Duncan, walked and stole second base. Luis Quinones bunted and beat it out.

"I played for one run and I got 14," Manager Pete Rose said.

The Reds scored 14 runs on 16 hits, all in the first inning, and went on to beat the Houston Astros, 18-2, Thursday at Cincinnati.

The 16 hits set a modern major league record for one inning. The previous record was 14, by the Boston Red Sox against the Detroit Tigers on June 18, 1953.

However, the 14 runs fell one short of the modern major league record for runs in one inning.

The 1952 Brooklyn Dodgers still hold that one. They scored 15--also in the first inning--against the Reds in a 19-1 victory on May 21, 1952.

[...]

Reed, Roomes, Todd Benzinger, Quinones, Eric Davis, Ken Griffey and Ron Oester all had two hits in the inning. Seven batters getting two hits in one inning sets an all-time major league record. The previous record of six batters with two hits in an inning was set in 1883 by the NL club in Chicago. [Emphasis added]

Huh. I'm only half paying attention, but not only does Ivan Rodriguez's son pitch for the Giants, by the looks of this last guy, apparently Rich Garces's son does too. A double-wide float in the Parade of Anonymous Relievers.

Giants - Diamondbacks game, 8th inning, DBacks up 3-0. Giants get runners on 1st and 2nd with 2 outs. Long mound visit with all the infielders, purportedly discussing how to pitch to the next batter or whatever. Ump goes out to break it up, everyone ambles back to their positions, batter digs in, catcher settles in at a leisurely pace behind the plate.

But wait! Lovullo comes trudging out to the mound...slowly...slowly...another loooong visit with all the infielders. We haven't discussed how to pitch to this next batter enough yet? After they chat a while, lo and behold, the guy with the huge beard has warmed up and is ready. Why, now it's time to make a pitching change, of course!

This is allowed why?

Matt Carpenter left the game with nausea....or if you read between the lines from the announcers comments...maybe diarrhea....


I was more then happy to accept the first excuse...my life has NOT been enriched by knowing the possible truth.

However playing under those conditions would be a bit uncomfortable to say the least...


Gary Lineker agrees.
