HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!
   2. Hank White Posted: September 18, 2019 at 12:40 PM (#5880396)
I have to admit I've spent most of this year disappointed that the Cubs aren't the perennial 110 win juggernaut that I thought they would be after 2016. But that said, I've really enjoyed this week and how important every games is - it feels like the playoffs already.

9280 at Camden Yards last night. Can they "top" that?
   4. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: September 18, 2019 at 01:14 PM (#5880411)

At the trading deadline, you had 8 teams in the NL who were all within 5 games of each other, fighting for the two Wild Card spots and/or NL Central title:

CHC 57-50 .533
STL 57-50 .533
WSN 57-51 .528
PHI 56-51 .523
MIL 57-52 .523
SFG 55-53 .509
ARI 54-55 .495
NYM 52-55 .486

All of those teams had weaknesses and it seemed like whichever ones went on a bit of a tear after the deadline would make the postseason, and that we'd end up having a couple of playoff teams with 84-85 wins.

Instead, 5 of those teams have played at a 92+ win pace since the deadline, and even the D-Backs have played better post-deadline despite trading Greinke. So it now seems like it will take 88+ wins to make the postseason. Which makes it very difficult for the Mets/Phillies, unless 2 of the teams ahead of them really swoon over the last couple weeks of the season.

STL 27-17 .614
WSN 26-16 .619
NYM 26-18 .591
MIL 25-17 .595
CHC 25-19 .568
ARI 23-20 .535
PHI 21-21 .500
SFG 18-25 .419

Dellin Betances is out for the season, after facing two batters in his season debut. He tore his left Achilles tendon jumping off the mound while celebrating the strikeout of the second batter.

What a maroon.

Let the kids play! Until they can't.

My dad is taking my mom to Italy in a few days, and when we were over for dinner on Sunday he and I were working out with the time zone when he would have to go to bed to get some sleep before getting up to be able to watch the game. And my wife asks, 'You can't just find out what happened when you wake up at a normal time?' My dad's look at her was classic. Just totally baffled at that comment followed by the look at me like "is she serious?" It was awesome. And I was glad he didn't say what he was thinking as that would have probably caused some problems.
   9. Nasty Nate Posted: September 18, 2019 at 01:30 PM (#5880418)
If I am interpreting the replay correctly, Betances did the little jig because he thought it was the 3rd out (it was only the 2nd).
   10. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:02 PM (#5880434)
Edman with his 10th homerun of the year...Sometime in August there was a thread with where we were counting number of players on a team with 10 homeruns or more, and I was looking at the Cardinals, and Edman wasn't even a thought at that point in time.
   11. Bote Man sez Deivi is MoY Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:22 PM (#5880442)
Betances sounds fragile. I mean, you can control how you jump to avoid injury, especially if you're an elite athlete.
   12. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:25 PM (#5880444)
especially if you're an elite athlete.

He's an elite ballplayer, that doesn't mean he's even a very good athlete.
   13. Bote Man sez Deivi is MoY Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:30 PM (#5880446)
Sounds like a shoo-in for the next BTF softball game, then!
   14. Bote Man sez Deivi is MoY Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:31 PM (#5880448)
Max Scherzer surrendered his requisite home run, but has otherwise been untouchable until that Carpenter double that just escaped the glove of Eaton at the RF wall. He has thrown 64 pitches into the 5th and the Nats' Brain Trust claim there are no limits on him.
   15. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:34 PM (#5880449)
now this sacrifice isn't as good of a plan.. Yadier up to bat, man on second no out and he tries to sacrifice twice... Yadier is a contact hitter and the double play is "eliminated" so let him swing away.
   16. salvomania Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:37 PM (#5880452)
To those watching the game: would Carpenter have scored on that grounder? (his pinchrunner Harrison Bader did in fact score)
   17. salvomania Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:39 PM (#5880453)
Birds with zero LOB through five.

Scherzer has allowed two baserunners, and they both scored (I guess if you count a homer as a baserunner).

   18. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:39 PM (#5880454)
Yes he would have scored. The ball went more than 50 feet there would have been no play at home whether it was Bader or Molina running. But now our defense has changed for the better.. Edman goes to third, Bader to center...Fowler to Right.
   19. salvomania Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:40 PM (#5880455)
And what is up with Howie Kendrick in 2019?
   20. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:49 PM (#5880458)
That was a nice double play... but I think it might be reviewed.

edit: looks like Kendrick was clearly safe.
   21. Bote Man sez Deivi is MoY Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:51 PM (#5880459)
Howie was safe, but now they're reviewing Soto's slide into 2B, which I doubt they'll change.
   22. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:53 PM (#5880460)
this is just stupid as f... man on first and second one out.. ground ball, play at second and he's out, throw to first and called out, but on replay clearly safe... Then Shildt is now challenging interference by the runner sliding into second base... the runner might have technically interfered, but it didn't affect the play(he basically slapped Wong in the ass)
   23. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:54 PM (#5880462)
I'm a big fan of replay... I f'ing hate the challenge system.
   24. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 02:59 PM (#5880463)
not sure what was going on, on that play... ball bouncing down the line and the first base ump calls it foul (it was before the bag...in theory that is the home plate umps job)

Oh well... Waino gets out of the inning without blowing up so it worked out... 86 pitches, shutout ball, qualifies as a quality start... Waino's era is at 3.85...not bad for a guy who is "washed up and probably should be hoping for a relievers job".
   25. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:00 PM (#5880464)
Waino is going to get a chance for the 7th as he's getting a chance to bat leadoff in the bottom of the 6th inning.
   26. salvomania Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:04 PM (#5880466)
I don't know how Adam Wainwright is doing it, but this is his 3rd scoreless game in four September starts; in the other he allowed 1 run in 7 innings.

In that stretch he's getting only 4.5 K/9, but he's walked just 5 (in 26 innings) and not allowed a homer.

His current 3.85 ERA would be his lowest full-season ERA since 2014.
   27. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:04 PM (#5880467)
Edmonds and Mclaughlin are pointing to a good point... Edman probably should have gotten the lead runner on that double play and threw to first, he was close enough... Oh well it worked out in the end... but it does point to a problem of having utility men instead of dedicated positions, some of these guys don't always translate different tactics when they move around the diamond(it's hard to do instinctively)
   28. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:06 PM (#5880468)
a couple of squibbers by both Wong and Fowler, has to make Scherzer hate the concept of "luck".
   29. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:08 PM (#5880470)
lol... that didn't work out according to anyone's plan... Scherzer hesitates and Fowler takes off, he throws to third and Fowler is able to make it back to second base without a play.
   30. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:12 PM (#5880472)
Waino pitching the 7th, at 90 pitches... strikes out the first batter(to reach 91 pitches) He might end up pitching the 8th if he continues like this.
   31. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:13 PM (#5880473)
Fowler with a ridiculously bad error there...
   32. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:15 PM (#5880476)
I was about to post how Waino has avoided the heart of the plate most of this game.... and as I'm typing that, he throws a really bad and easy to hit pitch.


Shildt doing what he does worse... bullpen management. (Yadier stopped him fortunately though)
   33. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:17 PM (#5880477)
Fowler redeems himself.... still not sure how that was an earned run though....
   34. The usual palaver and twaddle (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:21 PM (#5880480)
Netanyahu's on first...?
   35. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:24 PM (#5880482)
I have to say...one thing I like from my home town announcers is them acknowledging the great performances of the opposition. Nobody in the Cardinal's booth is ignoring the fact that Scherzer had a kick ass game today, regardless of the score.
   36. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:25 PM (#5880485)
Soto having problems with the sun... probably should have had that flyball from Dejong... at the same time... Dejong should have been on third.

They are calling that Dejong "hit a double"... no it was a routine deep fly ball lost in the sun...you have to give Soto an error on that play...

(Edman... the only man in baseball to homer off of Hader and Scherzer is now up to bat)
   37. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:28 PM (#5880487)
And Edman delivers... he's going to end up with the nickname of domino's...as he just seems to deliver.
   38. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:30 PM (#5880488)
Wieters in the house... Cardinals best backup catcher in a decade... and a guy who has probably earned a job somewhere next year as a starter.
   39. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:31 PM (#5880490)
in play run....my video hasn't caught up yet........ Edmonds says... good time to hit a two run homer... and a two run homer happened.
   40. The usual palaver and twaddle (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:31 PM (#5880492)
Metsies up 1-0 on a Jeff McNeil homer in the top of the first.

Somehow, I get a sneaky feeling that they're gonna need more than that up in Denver. Call it a hunch...
   41. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:35 PM (#5880494)
Scherzer's era is hammered because of scorekeeping... he should have only had 2 earned runs today calling that Dejong hit a double is a crime.
   42. Blastin Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:37 PM (#5880495)
He's an elite ballplayer, that doesn't mean he's even a very good athlete.


I feel like an achilles pop is pretty random. But I'd be extra careful with jumping, jumping is like 3x body weight.
   43. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:38 PM (#5880497)
I am fairly confident that there will be an appeal on that call.. Scherzer is a Cy Young candidate you can't screw that up with a bad scorekeeping call for home town players.
   44. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:41 PM (#5880498)
It does make me curious now... do home town scorekeepers routinely charge a higher percentage of errors to the home team than the opposition in the hope of getting better average for the home town team or is it the other way around for era? or is it equaled out?
   45. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:42 PM (#5880499)
They fixed Waino's era... that run is rightfully declared unearned.. but still Scherzer has been screwed by his defense.
   46. The usual palaver and twaddle (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:43 PM (#5880500)
...and there you go.

Something called "Sam Hilliard" ties the game with a 447 ft. shot to right center.

Who the hell is this guy?
   47. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:44 PM (#5880501)
Waino finishes the game with a 3.83 ERA instead of the slightly higher one he had when he left
   48. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:45 PM (#5880503)
Who the hell is this guy?


looks like a 25 year old that hit 35 homeruns in the minors this year.
   49. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:46 PM (#5880504)

They should, but they never ever have.
   50. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:46 PM (#5880505)
Miller is not sharp at all..
   51. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:47 PM (#5880506)
holy f.... Dexter Fowler with a legitimate homerun stealing catch.
   52. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:53 PM (#5880507)
I feel like an achilles pop is pretty random. But I'd be extra careful with jumping, jumping is like 3x body weight.

This was more like a dance step than a jump...to your point this looked like a pretty random injury to me. It wasn't like when Kendrys Morales jumped on home plate and broke his ankle years ago, for example.
   53. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:56 PM (#5880508)
Wong is one of my favorite players on the Cardinals, he just does so many things right and it's fun to watch him.
   54. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 03:59 PM (#5880510)
everyone knew that Wong was stealing there... and yet he still stole the base. (nats are challenging that he came off the bag... )

tough call to be honest... but again I think the fact he was safe initially should be the overriding concern.
   55. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: September 18, 2019 at 04:00 PM (#5880511)
HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!

Maybe like this.

   56. salvomania Posted: September 18, 2019 at 04:11 PM (#5880513)
(Parental discretion advised.)

For some reason I was expecting Madeleine Albright.
   57. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 04:14 PM (#5880515)
Cardinals with the win...I'm still not comfortable as a Cardinal fan, so many games against the second/third place team in your division with it still up for grabs is a scary thought.
   58. cardsfanboy Posted: September 18, 2019 at 04:16 PM (#5880518)
Brewers are in the most enviable position to be honest...
   59. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 04:20 PM (#5880519)
Brewers are in the most enviable position to be honest...

Yep. Either the Cards and Cubs beat each other up and they could end up ahead of both, or one of the two eliminate the other and the Brewers coast in right behind.
   60. phredbird Posted: September 18, 2019 at 04:22 PM (#5880520)

argh, i forgot -- again -- that today was a day game and i missed fowler saving the season for us.

well, the game anyway.

well, that inning.

go cards!
   61. salvomania Posted: September 18, 2019 at 04:34 PM (#5880522)
The three Wild Card teams are 1 game apart with 11 to play (with two teams having games tonight). And the Cardinals just 2.5 ahead of the pack, playing all above-.500 teams the rest of the way, including 7 head-to-head with the Cubs.

This could reasonably end up in any permutation scenario---any of these teams could be the one left out, one team will be looking forward to their NLDS, and the other two will be in a one-game elimination contest.

Knowing their respective recent histories, the Cubs will probably sweep the Cardinals in Wrigley that last weekend to knock them out.
   62. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 04:46 PM (#5880527)
Point of order - Cards play 4 @ Wrigley this week, starting tomorrow. The last 3 are in STL. The DBacks will be pretty close to eliminated, if not actually eliminated, by the time the Cards play them and they've been not good lately. The Cubs play the Pirates, who have basically just given up. Everyone the Brewers are playing are just forfeiting and not even showing up.
   63. salvomania Posted: September 18, 2019 at 04:58 PM (#5880532)
I don't think Jose Martinez makes that catch (just seeing the Fowler catch now)
   64. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: September 18, 2019 at 05:43 PM (#5880541)

Alonso has hit his 49th homer of the season, which ties McGwire for second-most by a rookie. He's now 3 behind Aaron Judge for the rookie record.
   65. Howie Menckel Posted: September 18, 2019 at 06:56 PM (#5880555)
Zombie Mets rally for 4 in the 9th to earn a 7-4 win at Coors Field. Lugo with a scoreless 8th and 9th.
   66. The Rare Albino Shrieking Goat of Guatemala. Posted: September 18, 2019 at 07:36 PM (#5880558)
Those might be the last pitches of CC's career.

If so, a hell of a ride and a hell of a Yankee.
   67. The Rare Albino Shrieking Goat of Guatemala. Posted: September 18, 2019 at 07:45 PM (#5880559)
ALL RISE!

2-2!

Lugo also had an RBI single in the 9th

Alonso also walked with the bases loaded to drive in the go-ahead run again. Second time in the past few weeks, although this time it wasn’t a walk-off.

Interesting game
   70. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 08:36 PM (#5880565)
Cubs have run into 2 outs on the bases. Less than ideal.
   71. Rob_Wood Posted: September 18, 2019 at 08:42 PM (#5880567)
I didn't realize that Javy Baez had returned to the lineup. :)
   72. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: September 18, 2019 at 08:53 PM (#5880569)
They are calling that Dejong "hit a double"... no it was a routine deep fly ball lost in the sun...you have to give Soto an error on that play...

A ball lost in the sun is the same as a ball hitting a pebble and changing direction. It's a hit and always has been.
   73. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: September 18, 2019 at 08:54 PM (#5880570)
Bases loaded, nobody out, and the Angels somehow manage just one unearned run. I'm not sure which is worse, that they're such an awful team this season, or I'm spending so much of my life watching this season die.

   75. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 09:06 PM (#5880572)
Castellanos just tried to run into another one, but the 2b just didn't tag him. So double #57.

Edit 56. Sorry.
   76. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 09:07 PM (#5880573)

Javy gets way more he shouldn't than he gives up.

Wow, that's a lot of doubles. He's got a damn good shot at 60!
   78. Misirlou doesn't live in the restaurant Posted: September 18, 2019 at 09:25 PM (#5880576)
If he gets there, he will be the highest ranked color photo on BBREF's all time single seasons doubles page. Todd Helton with 59 is the current leader.
   79. rconn23 Posted: September 18, 2019 at 09:26 PM (#5880577)
Yankees laying an egg offensively tonight with a chance to clinch.
   80. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 09:34 PM (#5880578)
Most doubles since 1950:

59: Helton (2000)
57: Delgado (2000)
56: Castellanos (2019), Ramirez (2017), Roberts (2009), Anderson (2002), Garciaparra (2002), Biggio (1999)
   81. PreservedFish Posted: September 18, 2019 at 09:41 PM (#5880579)
What an extraordinary accomplishment. Should be in the news more!
   82. Jeremy Renner App is Dead and I killed it Posted: September 18, 2019 at 09:41 PM (#5880580)
The home plate ump for Brewer game is calling strikes at a crazy high pace. If the ball is within swinging distance he's ringing it up so hitters are swinging at everything. 23 strikeouts between both teams at the top of the 7th with 2 outs.
   83. rconn23 Posted: September 18, 2019 at 10:01 PM (#5880583)
Dreadful loss by the Yankees. Can't afford to lose to the dregs of the league at home with HFA on the line. A lot of terrible at bats tonight.
   84. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 10:15 PM (#5880587)
This has been a pathetic showing by the Cubs offense.

Not sure why Strop was anywhere near this close game.
   85. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 10:16 PM (#5880588)
Albert Pujols flied out in the first inning at Yankee Stadium, bringing his career batting average to .29999. Pujols’s career batting average had not been below .300 at the end of any at-bat since he had a .286 mark (4-for-14) through his first four games in the majors.
   86. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 10:25 PM (#5880590)
Contreras. Yes.
   87. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 18, 2019 at 10:37 PM (#5880591)
You had jinxed things until that Contreras homer, Moses. You assured us the Cubs would hit this guy well!

Strop being used late in a tied game at this point is just asking for trouble. Joe really needs to stop using him in any even remotely important situation.

Yet I didn't feel that opposed to chatwood but still think that was wicks spot. Chatwood was hitting 99!

I said they should clobber him. They should have, he stinks.

Brewers actually lose, so Cubs really need to grab this one.

Alright, end it in the 9th. No extras before the cards series please.
   92. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 18, 2019 at 11:03 PM (#5880602)
They've got the right guys coming up.
   93. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 18, 2019 at 11:06 PM (#5880603)
OK, this guy has an ERA of almost 9 and used to work at Sterling Cooper. End this now.
   94. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 11:08 PM (#5880604)
Get it in the ####### air. It's blowing way out to left.
   95. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 18, 2019 at 11:12 PM (#5880605)
Well that was pathetic.
   96. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 11:12 PM (#5880606)
Pathetic.

Joe isn't really going to bring in Holland here is he?
   97. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 11:15 PM (#5880609)
Dodged a bullet there.
   98. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 18, 2019 at 11:23 PM (#5880610)
So are they just not calling strikes anymore?
   99. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 18, 2019 at 11:23 PM (#5880611)
This ump has been really inconsistent tonight. That 4 pitch walk had 3 strikes per wgn kzone.

Needing a single, this is the guy that actually scares me the most.
