Of course I’m submitting this on 5-28-2014, but Flux Capacitor is… uh… fluxing.

Can anyone stop Edwin Encarnacion?
No HR yesterday, but he got both of the Jays RBI with a bases-loaded single.

Ten games today, but not a lot of bold font in the pitcher matchups. OMNICHATTER is in a democratic spirit today, so it designates three matchups of the day. The winning pitchers will play the leads on the next season of True Detective.

Rangers (27-26) @ Twins (24-26), 1:10pm
TEX: Nick Martinez (#22, 23, RHP, 1-1, 2.14)
MIN: Samuel Deduno (#21, 30, RHP, 1-3, 3.48)
Would not have guessed Deduno was 30.

Tigers (29-20) @ Athletics (32-21), 3:35pm
DET: Rick Porcello (#21, 25, LHP, 7-2, 3.88)
OAK: Jesse Chavez (#60, 30, RHP, 4-2, 2.61)

OMNICHATTER MotD: A real barnburner of a series ends with two emerging pitchers squaring off. If it's anything like last night's game, you'll want to tune in wherever you are.

Mets (24-28) @ Phillies (23-27), 7:05pm
NYM: Zack Wheeler (#45, 23, RHP, 1-5, 4.63)
PHI: David Buchanan (#55, 25, RHP, 1-0, 3.60)

Royals (24-28) @ Blue Jays (32-22), 7:07pm
KCR: James Shields (#33, 32, RHP, 6-3, 2.95)
TOR: R.A. Dickey (#43, 39, RHP, 5-4, 3.95)

OMNICHATTER MotD: These two teams would be the undisputed OMNICHATTER MotD in 1985. Alas, OMNICHATTER has not yet perfected time travel. Until it does, enjoy two veteran workhorses, one a knuckleballer!

Braves (28-24) @ Red Sox (23-29), 7:10pm
ATL: Mike Minor (#36, 26, LHP, 2-3, 3.90)
BOS: Jake Peavy (#44, 32, RHP, 1-2, 4.65)
HOW WILL THE RED SOX WIN TODAY?

Orioles (26-25) @ Astros (22-32), 8:10pm
BAL: Ubaldo Jimenez (#31, 30, RHP, 2-6, 4.98)
HOU: Brad Peacock (#41, 26, RHP, 1-4, 5.20)

Giants (34-19) @ Cardinals (29-24), 8:15pm
SFG: Ryan Vogelsong (#32, 36, RHP, 3-2, 3.20)
STL: Jaime Garcia (#54, 27, LHP, 1-0, 4.26)

Reds (23-28) @ Diamondbacks (22-33), 9:40pm
CIN: Tony Cingrani (#52, 24, LHP, 2-4, 4.06)
ARI: Josh Collmenter (#55, 28, RHP, 3-2, 3.88)
Josh Collmenter throws like a pitching machine.

Angels (29-23) @ Mariners (26-26), 10:10pm
LAAoA: Matt Shoemaker (#52, 27, RHP, 2-1, 3.18)
SEA: Brandon Maurer (#37, 23, RHP, 1-3, 6.99)

Pirates (23-29) @ Dodgers (29-25), 10:10pm
PIT: Gerrit Cole (#45, 23, RHP, 4-3, 3.76)
LAD: Dan Haren (#14, 33, RHP, 5-3, 3.16)

OMNICHATTER MotD: A homecoming for UCLA product Cole. And, hey, Vin Scully is back in the booth!

Which A's team will show up today? The one that wins by 6-10 runs, or the one that randomly wins or loses by 1-2. I posit that this is a good problem to have.

   12. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: May 29, 2014 at 02:39 PM (#4715476)
If you want a laugh, you should try watching the Royals hit a knuckleball. Hilarity ensures.

The only thing this Nori Aoki gif is missing is his pants falling down with a sad trombone playing "WAA-WAAAAAAAH!!!!"

AJ Pollock and Mike Trout were linked by fate, both fish surnamed centerfielders chosen in the 1st round of the 2009 draft. Two years ago I asked a friend what the odds were of Pollock ever having a better season than Trout. He said that there was a 0% chance of it happening. Pollock has 2.5 WAR to Trout's 3.2, in fewer innings. He's making it interesting, at least.

RoyalsRetro: Was that Cossart pitching a knuckleball? I thought he was a flame-thrower.
   17. dr. scott Posted: May 29, 2014 at 04:20 PM (#4715627)
Porcello walks little Nicky Punto to load the bases... no outs... for Sogard...
   18. dr. scott Posted: May 29, 2014 at 04:22 PM (#4715632)
Sorgard rarely strikes out.... we really could have used one there instead of the double play.
   19. dr. scott Posted: May 29, 2014 at 04:54 PM (#4715669)
This time Punto homers instead of walking... good for him. 2-1 A's. Sogard then grounds out to first base.

RoyalsRetro: Was that Cossart pitching a knuckleball? I thought he was a flame-thrower.


Sorry, I confused sentences. Tonight they face the knuckler (Dickey). Aoki swung at a pitch that hit him in the shoulder from Cosart.

In other news, the Royals have demoted hitting instructor Pedro Grifol and made him catching instructor (that's a thing????) Dale Sveum moves from 3rd base coach to hitting coach. Mike Jirschele moves from "Major League Coach" to third base coach.

Something about chairs and the Titanic.

He can't let Ben Revere show him up!

Smart by Detroit to hit Sogard... hes a menace at the plate. 45 OPS+

Jesus sometimes the lack of situational hitting with the A's is maddening. Bases loaded no out, man on 3rd and no outs and 1st and 3rd situation with no outs and you cant score? You deserve to lose

   28. dr. scott Posted: May 29, 2014 at 06:53 PM (#4715744)
OK without another patented A's miracle Melvin is the Goat of this game for bringing in Johnson in a high leverage situation. In the 9th, A's just scored and its 5-3 Detroit.

The Phillies TV announcers have no rapport at all. The play-by-play guy does almost all of the talking and the analysts sound like they have no idea when to speak up.
   32. cardsfanboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 08:30 PM (#4715788)

Don't they have an ointment for that?
   33. Crispix reaches boiling point with lackluster play Posted: May 29, 2014 at 08:32 PM (#4715790)
The Phillies TV analysts are Jamie Moyer and Matt Stairs. Turns out that hiring analysts based on their status as beloved players, when that beloved status was achieved through a couple anecdotal occurrences, and they only played for the team briefly anyway, leads to intense boredom.

Gary Matthews Sr. may have spouted a lot of nonsense, but at least he had energy and they had a rapport.
   34. steagles Posted: May 29, 2014 at 08:34 PM (#4715791)
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. surveyed his team from the field this week before he offered some honest insight about the First-Year Player Draft.

"Is it the biggest crapshoot in the game?" he said. "Yes, it is. The amateur Draft is probably the worst investment you can make in acquiring players, but it's also the most important."
   35. Crispix reaches boiling point with lackluster play Posted: May 29, 2014 at 08:36 PM (#4715792)
Well it's true, you sign a guy like Marlon Byrd and you can be pretty sure he'll contribute more in one season than your average draft pick does in an entire career. They all make the same salary, right?
   36. madvillain Posted: May 29, 2014 at 08:36 PM (#4715793)
Just to start hyping this up early: Next Monday will be Sale against Kershaw --and Abrue's first game back, just in time to see his countryman Puig.
   37. cardsfanboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 08:37 PM (#4715794)
Good thing Carpenter stole second...Allen Craig follows that up with an automatic double..without the steal it's just second and third.
   38. cardsfanboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 08:41 PM (#4715798)
I don't see a problem with what Amaro said, you acquire roughly 40 players of which only a couple might ever reach the majors, you spend a lot of manpower in trying to figure out the best picks for your system etc... If you sign 10 free agents, as a general rule roughly half will be decent players.
   39. boteman Posted: May 29, 2014 at 08:48 PM (#4715801)
Why did they pinch-hit Nava for Lavarnway?
   40. cardsfanboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 08:49 PM (#4715802)
Giants up 2-1...boo..hiss...

As the season progress's, teams get sloppier and sloppier at the run down. Cardinals are still fairly sharp, but Wong threw the ball too soon on that run down, Peralta played it nearly perfectly though. Still, it's a play that is surprises me how often teams screw it up. Cardinals have taken advantage at least 3 times this year of poor execution on the run down, not talking about being safe at the bag...although that happened at least once this year, but in making it last long enough for the runner to advance.
   41. cardsfanboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 08:51 PM (#4715803)
Not sure which name I like more .....Angel Pagan or Darwin Barney.

BABIP must have had many dogs then, given what Colby Lewis did to the first two or three.

Lavarnway out with wrist soreness.

Angel Pagan works on so many levels. Plus, he's really come into his own out in S.F.

Agreed, but I like the Darwin Barney, it's like an evolutionist vs creationist (Barney is a dinosaur who plays with human kids....and that is a scientific reenactment of what really happened 4,000 years ago according the Ken Ham and the creationist museum) (of course Darwin Barney will probably be out of baseball in a couple of years)


I forgot another "contradictory" name.... Rich Batchelor. Not nearly as fun as the others though.

the aforemenioned darwin barney cost the cubs a game recently when he tried to turn a game-ending double play (i think) -- his throw landed about 15 feet in front and to the right of the first baseman

That wasn't Barney...that was just the fact that it was the Cubs.
   52. Random Transaction Generator Posted: May 29, 2014 at 09:16 PM (#4715820)
Edwin Encarnacion continues to torch opposing pitchers, as he has two more home runs so far tonight.

That's 16 for the month of May, tying Mickey Mantle's AL record, and one behind Barry Bonds' MLB record for May.

He's got two more games left in the month to take a run at the AL record for any month (18, Rudy York), and the MLB record for any month (20, Sammy Sosa).
   53. cardsfanboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 09:21 PM (#4715824)
I really hate the pimping from the announcers for the fans to vote for the hometown favorites for the all star game. The only Cardinal you are allowed to vote for who is worthy of consideration is leading the vote getters for his position.

Only other guy that I would consider, and it's because of his season last year, is Carpenter, but even though I push for considering the previous season for the All Star game, I think that the current season has to be good before you worry about the previous season.
   54. cardsfanboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 09:27 PM (#4715825)
bases loaded no outs, Peralta up, Cardinals losing 2-1....the difference between a team on a positive streak or a negative streak is shown by the results of these situations. (although the Yankees won last night when they failed to score in this exact same situation)

Cardinals tie it, but hit into a double play.... pffftttt!!!!
   55. Snowboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 09:31 PM (#4715827)
Well, the Jays announcers just mentioned that Encarnacion is not in the top 5 for voting, listed at DH position.
Home-town announcing or not, that seems worth mentioning. And rectifying.
(Although perhaps this is an exchange-rate problem, Cdn votes are only worth .88 of a vote or something!)

Agree. I have no problem with mentioning specific players, it's the "vote for the Cardinals" concept that bothers me. I'm not voting team straight down the line and think anyone who does is a tool.
   57. cardsfanboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 09:36 PM (#4715831)
You want to pimp Yadier Molina....go for it. Even Matt Adams I can see, but what has Wong or Jay or Craig done to make them more worthy than a host of other candidates on other teams.

Heck it's even worse for the Cardinals to be pushing it, as we have the manager to make the final decisions(although the manager decisions are fairly limited)
   58. boteman Posted: May 29, 2014 at 09:36 PM (#4715832)

One of the few times I won't bag on Bourjos.... he reaches first due to his speed. Bourjos takes off, Garcia sacrifices him over, and Bourjos doesn't stop at second and ends up at third without a throw. Not really much to fault the Giants, Garcia made a nice bunt that they had to rush the throw to first, no chance to look at the runner.

Since April 27th, Encarnacion is slugging over .800. I don't think the Mets have anyone OPSing over .800 over that stretch.

Bautista just got Billy Butler on a 9-3 putout
   69. Transmission Posted: May 29, 2014 at 10:02 PM (#4715852)
Earlier in Jays/Royals Game: Bautista plays a ball perfectly off the RF wall, perfect throw in to second that would have Billy Butler dead-to-rights. Butler has to retreat to first, is only safe because Reyes drops the ball in exchanging it from glove to hand.

Now in Jays/Rays Game: Butler lines one into medium-depth right field, Bautista throws him out by a step and a half at first base.

Butler is stunningly slow.
   70. JJ1986 Posted: May 29, 2014 at 10:02 PM (#4715853)
Jenrry Mejia with really good stuff tonight.
   71. cardsfanboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 10:02 PM (#4715854)
Sandoval ties it up with a homerun. Craig promptly leads off the next inning with a homerun to give the Cardinals the 4-3 lead. Craig also leads the team in RBI after having a very slow start to the season.
   72. Russlan is fond of Dillon Gee Posted: May 29, 2014 at 10:03 PM (#4715855)
Mejia strikes out Rollins, Utley, and Howard to save the game for the Mets. Where the heck were you in 2007?

Mejia is doing well in this role but I have to say that I wish they kept him as a starter. He's got the stuff and he's had some success as a starter. He had a few tough starts. I don't think we have enough proof to say he can't cut it as a starter.

I should have known not to say what I said in 66 on bbtf.
   73. boteman Posted: May 29, 2014 at 10:04 PM (#4715857)

Kimbrel is imploding. He walked JBJr, now Holt was trying to make an out by bunting and he ended up walking him, too.

See, this is why closers should only be used in the 9th inning. This is Fredi's punishment for breaking that cardinal rule and bringing him on to get the last out of the 8th. He must not have read The Book. /amirite?

At Kaufmann stadium there's a track where you can sprint and race against a neon light that represents one of four famous Royals players. I was very excited to smoke Billy Butler when I saw a 12 year old kid match Bo Jackson - sadly the thing is rigged.

At Kaufmann stadium there's a track where you can sprint and race against a neon light that represents one of four famous Royals players. I was very excited to smoke Billy Butler when I saw a 12 year old kid match Bo Jackson - sadly the thing is rigged.


that sounds pretty cool (not the rig part, but the race thing.)

Still....Billy Butler is one of the four famous royals? I was thinking Willie Wilson, Bo Jackson, George Brett and (well it could be a lot of guys depending what the goal is)

Already has as many hits this month as Uggla does.

Why wouldn't he be? Having Butler as an option is the genius of the thing.

The back-in-the-day equivalent would have been if fans could race the ponderous Ernie Lombardi at the Polo Grounds. Very very few fans would have lost such a race.

LOLCards. QuickieMart in hot water after the throw from CF bounces under his glove near home plate and past Molina allowing Blanco to score the tying run. He wasn't backing up Molina on the play, which if executed properly would have resulted in runners at the corners. It wasn't the best throw from Borjous, though.

Arbitrary endpoints with Pablo Sandoval, last 18 games:

.380/.392/.690, 6 HR, 19 RBI

And Springer has his 2-run homer tonight.
   89. Yoenis Cespedes, Baseball Savant Posted: May 29, 2014 at 10:44 PM (#4715882)
George Springer with a home run, his seventh in as many games.

Cardinals must've gotten the word on Pablo because they IBB him, then Morse promptly doubled him home. RESPECK!!

Still waiting to see that defense from Bourjos that everyone was talking about....turned a one run single into a two run double.(at least according to the radio announcers...missed the video)

"I must be quite the athlete! Faster than Billy Butler, more powerful than Willie Wilson, better batting eye than Dan Quisenberry..."

It was a fair description. That inning was a cluster#### from the Cardinals defense, mainly on Carlos Martinez's part.

Sad when the Cardinals announcers talk about the fastest players on the team and are talking about two pitchers.

That was my fault. I had to step out for a few minutes and everything bad happened in that time frame.

So Miami is tied with the Braves for best record in the NL East despite not having a healthy Fernandez.

When you bat Erick Aybar for no good reason and he's jackin' homers, you know you're living right. Angels 5-0 over the Mariners in the 4th.
   98. cardsfanboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 11:21 PM (#4715899)
Cardinals just don't give up. 6-5 bottom of the 9th after Carpenter drives in a run, men on first and third two outs though and Shane Robinson is up.
   99. cardsfanboy Posted: May 29, 2014 at 11:22 PM (#4715900)
We might end up tying this on a wild pitch.

Giants @ Cards getting very interesting in the 9th. Romo not sharp.
