HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!


I'm going with "due to a nuclear war started by an idiot buffoon on Twitter."

I'm actually pretty solid with humanity ending this way, actually.

If you can't wait for the MLB games to start, here's a fan-feed of Ireland vs. Norway.

You know, if you put a "Fred" at the end of your handle it would tie the whole thing together pretty nicely.

If the nuclear war happens before the fifth inning, it's not a loss. The only way a nuclear war could make the Angels lose is if it happened in say the top half of the seventh, after they had scored runs and made up a deficit that had existed at the end of the sixth. Because the seventh hadn't been completed, the nuclear war would wipe out the runs, making the Angels lose.

Any other loss is just normal business, even if a nuclear war accompanies it, or perhaps causes a 10-year fallout delay.

Knowing the Angels, the first nuclear bomb would land precisely on Ohtani's right elbow.

Speaking of thermonuclear conditions, it’s 100° F at the Ballpark - but with a couple hours till game time, this is pretty much normal for late July. Yesterday at this hour it was 109°.

Mets receiving some interest in Jose Bautista and Devin Mesoraco.

I'm randomly perusing MLB.com and ended up at a Cut4 article on breaking down all the inside the park homeruns since 2001

and the first part of the article to astonish me was this little factoid,
There have been 224 regular-season inside-the-park home runs since the start of the 2001 season -- a little under 13 per season, on average.


Now I think if I really thought of the odds, that probably sounds about right, but still it seems awfully high, but ultimately it's just about 13 per season, or roughly two per month.

Edit: and just because; I don't think I've ever in my life spelled randomly correctly on the first try... no clue why I cannot spell that word without spell check to save my life.

Who all had "Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease" as the most Mets way the Mets would lose a player to injury this season? The bar has certainly been raised, but there's still 2+ months of the season to out-Thor Thor.

air raid sirens will sound throughout Queens if they score again while he is in the game

Please confine such things to Mets specific threads.

I would rather not risk Brandon Morrow reading something like this less than carefully, not realizing he's ineligible for the contest, and taking it as a challenge.

Something deeper and more intellectual ! Of course, humans need repetition, but please, make it something cool and exciting.
Not some stupid Angels stuff.

If Luke Farrell can go five solid, I'm of a mind to spend some time coming up with a BJ Honeycutt-style nickname for him.

Let's hope Gausman can contain the Red Sucks. 1:0 does seem reasonable.

So much for solid....well, except the contact by the DBack hitters. It's been very solid. But that is the kind of solid that will not provide 5 innings.

Farrell can't seem to get that 84 MPH pitch lower than about mid thigh.

Gausman got Betts out, 400 feet flyout, but nonetheless... impressive.
   29. Zonk is a Doorknob Whisperer Posted: July 23, 2018 at 08:25 PM (#5714488)
Nice of Farrell to let the snakes extend batting practice into the 1st inning.

If Jeff Mathis smokes a two-run double off you, you're probably just about done.
   30. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: July 23, 2018 at 08:29 PM (#5714489)
This is really weird. The Cubs used to be the real LOSERS. Now it's the Orioles and Padres.

I expected more from the Cubs Losers for my Giants, but then again, stop expecting anything.

   33. Howie Menckel Posted: July 23, 2018 at 08:40 PM (#5714493)
tough combo of brilliant Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling in the booth, analyzing Keystone Cops Mets games.

Padres have runner on 3rd, 1 out in the 5th.
Mets IBB .226-hitting catcher Hedges to get to the pitcher.
announcers note that this gives the pitcher a chance to do something productive, like bunt a runner to 2nd. but he strikes out.

then Jankowski is up, so a fast runner against a dominant P in deGrom. Darling says the Mets "need to be cognizant" of a possible 2-out bunt - which is almost unheard of.

of course Jankowski bunts on the next pitch - but fouls it back.

then the announcers speculate that the Padres might send the lummox Hedges to 2nd, hoping to draw a throw that eventually leads to fleet Margot scoring from third base. you guys who played Little League and such remember this play, lol.

next pitch, Hedges runs - and no one is even covering second. foul ball.
next pitch, they do it AGAIN. Hedges stops between first and second, begging the Mets to get him in a rundown. the Mets know better than to try to be so efficient, so the catcher fakes the throw and lets Hedges have the base.

think of the high school players who have to run laps because they can't make such a play.

Jankowski works out a walk. next batter pops a high foul behind the plate, Mesoraco is wobbling. "uh oh," Darling says.

miraculously, Mesoraco snares it at the last second - and self-immolation is delayed.

but Padres take a 2-1 lead anyway - so forget about deGrom getting a win. first run scored on a dropped fly by RF Bautista for an error, a wild pitch, and a single.

1 ER in 5 IP moves deGrom's ERA this season up a point to 1.69

   34. Zonk is a Doorknob Whisperer Posted: July 23, 2018 at 08:41 PM (#5714494)
Welp.

I have a very strong feeling a position player is going to get some mound work in for the Cubs tonight.
   35. K-BAR, J-BAR (trhn) Posted: July 23, 2018 at 08:43 PM (#5714497)
Nice inning. Little BABIP regression for Luke! He's still been a little unlucky as FG has his xFIP for today's start at 6.92.

Heh - the limitations of metrics.

I think Corbin is the only DBack to swing and miss so far.

Howie said upthread that the Mets are drawing interest in Bautista? If he can get here in time to pitch the 7th-8th-9th, done deal.

Severino with his second rough start in a row. He can't blame this one on Sanchez. The offense in another tailspin. They shouldn't bother making a move by the deadline. There's no transformative player available that's going to help them. At least not one that is worth giving up a top prospect for.

Back to back flyouts NOT on the warning track. And I think I saw a good lookin' curve. Things are looking up! And not just in the lookin' up over your shoulder to watch a HR fly into the basket.

If the game goes 80 innings and Farrell is on a 2000 pitch PC, he might find his rhythm... eventually.

As it stands right now, the Reds need to take as many pitches as they can, it's well known the Cardinals bullpen under Shildt is severely mismanaged, so you might as well take advantage of it.
   50. frannyzoo Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:03 PM (#5714524)
The chance of the Mets getting a 2-out RISP home here is lower than deGrom's ERA.

Edit: Make that 2 RISP. Still the same chances, actually lower, as Nimmo was our best hope.

But NO! Reyes crushes the baseball about 13 feet from home plate and the swinging bunt makes it 3-2.
   51. Zonk is a Doorknob Whisperer Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:05 PM (#5714526)
This would be a tight game if someone had explained to Farrell that the 1st inning is not "volley for serve".
   52. cardsfanboy Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:06 PM (#5714527)
Mclaughlin basically saying the truism that everyone in St Louis except Shildt knows, that you can only count on Hicks or Norris.
   53. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:06 PM (#5714528)
Thanks for the hit, Gary!

(he is CLEARLY still not over the groin injury, he's running at about 50%)
   54. cardsfanboy Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:08 PM (#5714530)
oops, nevermind, thought there were already two outs.
   55. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:09 PM (#5714531)
Take Severino out, he is not good enough for Rays' Super Sluggers.

114 pitches with 2 out in the 7th, 3-2 on the hitter, this has to be his last batter no matter what happens.
   60. cardsfanboy Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:14 PM (#5714537)
If Poncedeleon gets out of this inning without allowing a hit, his night is over, with a no hitter in his major league debut, but only 7 innings pitched.

Here's what happens if the smallest nuclear bomb ever made goes off precisely on Shohei Ohtani's right elbow.


Executive summary (in case you don't want awesome maps): 90 deaths (I guess they're assuming it's not during a game), field and box seats entirely destroyed. The stadium itself would be mostly okay since it's a big concrete building, although everyone inside it would burn to death. Serious radiation poising from Orangewood to the train tracks and from the parking lot to the river. Ohtani himself would probably not survive the fireball.

   67. cardsfanboy Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:20 PM (#5714547)
the scary part is that Shildt has shown zero ability to manage a bullpen, instead of using the data that was developed over the previous two months, he's trying to re-establish a baseline during a critical series, so nobody has faith in Shildt's ability to manage a pen. He's been with the major league team all season long, he knows what these guys can do, but he channeled the blogosphere and decided to re-test the relievers we have to see who can perform, with predictable results that anyone who has watched this season could have foreseen.

I presume the local broadcast mentioned it copiously, but given the Cubs game was boring after half an inning - Jim and Len were talking about De Leon's comebacker injury that landed him in the hospital for three weeks (Caratini was the guy who hit it). Apparently, they've kept in touch since the incident.

I know this is schtick, but still, he's averaging 16 pitches per inning, there's no way he stays in for 140+ picthes.
   71. Perry Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:28 PM (#5714556)

His last name is actually Poncedeleon. His first name is Daniel.

Mets stat during 7th inning:
deGrom has a 1.63 ERA in his last 10 starts, 80 K vs 16 BB
his record is..... 1-4

7 games this season of 0 ER or 1 ER in 7 or more IP where he didn't get a W
if he only had 4 Ws in those games, he'd be called "snakebit"
(tonight doesn't count because he allowed TWO ER in 8 IP)

the all-time MLB record for fewest W in 20 starts with a sub-2.00 ERA is 7
deGrom is 5-4 and this is his 20th start, so immortality is his!
plus he trails 3-2 in the 8th

   78. cardsfanboy Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:43 PM (#5714569)
If anyone else other than Norris would have started this inning, it would have been justifiable for the Cardinals to fire Shildt right then and there.

If anyone else other than Norris would have started this inning, it would have been justifiable for the Cardinals to fire Shildt right then and there.

I was hoping he'd leave Hicks in for the 9th after he threw just 10 pitches in the 8th.

How old is this guy?


His birth certificate says 26, but who knows who's birth certificate he is using, he's probably about 300 is my guess.

Man, that Winker is such a Wanker, it ain't even funny. Go Reds !

A lot older than he appears. It's almost as if he's found some special, even magical liquid substance coming out of the ground and availed himself of its powers.

I would have been fine with that also.

3am truck, I need this game to end.... unfortunately it seems like for that to happen, it's not a victory for my team.

Load em up up up, load em up up up, Reds on Fire !

Sweet.

Well crap. I'm about ready to have them pull the plug at this point. Trade Norris, maybe both Martinezes, play the kids, aim for 2019 or 2020.

Pretty sh!tty outing by Norris tonight. Five baserunners allowed out of seven batters faced, and one of the outs was a spectacular sliding catch by Ozuna.

I know it's SSS and all, but Suarez (third hitter up), the Reds' best hitter, is now 4-for-4 lifetime against Norris.

I'm coming in late to this, but Nats @ Brewers top of the 4th ended when Trea Turner bunted at an 0-1 pitch that apparently bounced fair juuuuuuuuust in front of the plate then deflected elsewhere. Trea spun around and just walked back to the dugout and was called out for abandoning the plate. He looked like he just didn't care. Another Nats fan figures he knew he'd be out by 85 feet so why bother running, but there are signs accruing that Deivi Martinez lost the clubhouse for sure.

To be fair, Trea made a great defensive play the next inning. Just hard to figure out this Nationals team.

If I was Poncedeleon, I would seek direct trade to the Blue Jays or Orioles. Friggin' Cardinal idiots.

Gardy !

Someone needs to kick Aaron Boone in the nuts for this 9th inning "strategy"

Yeah, let's *intentionally* take the bat out of the hand of the guy who has 9 hits in a row in this stadium ...

After that bunt, the Yankees deserved to lose.

And Sanchez's groin is clearly not even CLOSE to being fully healed.
