Uh, wow. Chipper. That...that was some Disney movie #### right there.

Nice to see that lipless-boy is still a POS.

That may be a job saver for Fredi.

braun cranked his 37th homer today and now takes over the league lead in slugging and total extra base hits. braun in the top ten in numerous offensive categories and leads in the ones above as well as rbi and ops.

Too bad he's a steroid cheat who walked on a technicality. I don't trust any of Braun's numbers anymore.

EDIT: And yes, Chipper's walk-off game-winning homer with two outs was Disney-level amazing. I desperately want the Braves to lose and even I couldn't help but smile.

Same goes for Michael Morse, I suppose?

eso

you will be pleased to know that many sophisticated fans have serenaded him at various ballparks with profanity laced chants. you can tell it weighs on him.

//that's saracasm for the slow-witted

I was at last night's and today's Brewers games. I would say Braun jerseys make up about 60% of replica jerseys worn by fans and he drew by far the largest cheers from the crowd. If people here care about his PED issues they're hiding it really, really well.

if the phillies had pulled this game out, they'd have pulled to within 7 games of the 2nd wildcard, while playing .600 ball since the all-star break and having swept the braves and the nationals over the last 10 days.


as it is, we're still where we were.

Scheduling look-ahead: Dodgers host the Cardinals for four on Sept. 13-16.

Absolutely.

Hey, I got my stance, and I try to keep it consistent.

Anyway, didn't mean to be a turd in the punchbowl. Let's just talk about how much we're all gonna miss Chipper. So happy to see him going out on a Mussina-esque high note.

Fair enough.

I'm sure Braun can withstand being needled. :)

Even sweeter -- Papelbon gave up the blast.

Dumb rules question from Saturday night Brewers-Priates: Gomez reaches, then steals second, then steals third. Next batter, Gomez breaks for home, pitcher (presumably at least in part distracted by Gomez streaking home) uncorks wild pitch, Gomez scores easily. Why doesn't Gomez get credit for the steal of home? The rule here

Rule 10.07 Stolen Bases And Caught Stealing
The official scorer shall credit a stolen base to a runner whenever the runner advances one base unaided by a hit, a putout, an error, a force-out, a fielder's choice, a passed ball, a wild pitch or a balk, subject to the following:
(a) When a runner starts for the next base before the pitcher delivers the ball and the pitch results in what ordinarily is scored a wild pitch or passed ball, the official scorer shall credit the runner with a stolen base and shall not charge the misplay, unless, as a result of the misplay, the stealing runner advances an extra base, or another runner also advances, in which case the official scorer shall score the wild pitch or passed ball as well as the stolen base.


seems to say he should, but it was scored as a WP.

The Phillies loss helps my own personal Mets goal of finishing above them.
