Still awaiting the many, many, many, many Fister puns.
   2. Rickey! trades in sheep and threats Posted: May 09, 2014 at 01:16 PM (#4703522)
Astros (11-24) @ Orioles (18-14), 7:05pm
HOU: Scott Feldman (#46, 31, RHP, 2-1, 1.69)
BAL: Wei-Yin Chen (#16, 28, LHP, 3-2, 4.24)

GAME NOTES: I have no idea who Scott Feldman is. I'd never heard of him before today's game.


Angels (16-17) @ Blue Jays (18-17), 7:07pm
LAA: Garrett Richards (#43, 26, RHP, 3-0, 2.84)
TOR: Dustin McGowan (#29, 32, RHP, 2-1, 4.80)

GAME NOTES: "Dustin McGowan" sounds like a guy who rassles in WWE while wearing a kilt.


Cardinals (18-17) @ Pirates (14-20), 7:05pm
STL: Michael Wacha (#52, 22, RHP, 2-3, 2.55)
PIT: Francisco Liriano (#47, 30, LHP, 0-3, 4.54)

Twins (15-18) @ Tigers (20-10), 7:08pm
MIN: Phil Hughes (#45, 28, RHP, 3-1, 4.72)
DET: Justin Verlander (#35, 31, RHP, 4-1, 2.68)

Indians (16-19) @ Rays (15-20), 7:10pm
CLE: Corey Kluber (#28, 28, RHP, 2-3, 3.60)
TBR: Jake Odorizzi (#23, 24, RHP, 1-3, 6.83)

Phillies (15-18) @ Mets (16-17), 7:10pm
PHI: Roberto Hernandez (#27, 33, RHP, 2-1, 4.50)
NYM: Jenrry Mejia (#58, 24, RHP, 3-0, 5.23)

Rockies (22-15) @ Reds (15-18), 7:10pm
COL: Jhoulys Chacin (#45, 26, RHP, 0-1, 7.20)
CIN: Johnny Cueto (#47, 28, RHP, 3-2, 1.31)

GAME NOTES: In addition to being a strong early contender for the NL CYA, Johnny Cueto once literally kicked Jason LaRue completely out of baseball. Injured Cardinals are always hilarious.


Cubs (12-21) @ Braves (18-15), 7:35pm
CHC: Jason Hammel (#39, 31, RHP, 4-1, 2.43)
ATL: Julio Teheran (#49, 23, RHP, 2-2, 1.80)

GAME NOTES: Julio Teheran is another strong contender for the NL CYA. He once drilled Bryce Harper in the ass, just to watch him cry. He's sort of the new Petey that way. Everyone except Nationals fans - who are evil and vile and probably molest small children - love Julio Teheran.

I am hesitant to name a Cubs starter as part of the OMNICHATTER Matchup Of The Day, but it being the case that Jason Hammel has a sub-2.50 ERA and is facing a Braves lineup that seems to be capable of striking out 30+ times per game, I'ma go ahead and go with it.


Red Sox (17-17) @ Rangers (18-17), 8:05pm
BOS: Clay Buchholz (#11, 29, RHP, 2-2, 5.63)
TEX: Yu Darvish (#11, 27, RHP, 2-1, 2.87)

Yankees (18-15) @ Brewers (22-13), 8:10pm
NYY: Masahiro Tanaka (#19, 25, RHP, 4-0, 2.53)
MIL: Yovani Gallardo (#49, 28, RHP, 2-1, 2.47)

D'backs (13-24) @ White Sox (18-18), 8:10pm
ARI: Brandon McCarthy (#32, 30, RHP, 1-5, 4.67)
CHW: Andre Rienzo (#64, 26, RHP, 2-0, 4.50)

Nationals (19-15) @ Athletics (20-15), 10:05pm
WSN: Doug Fister (#58, 30, RHP, 0-0, undef)
OAK: Tommy Milone (#57, 27, LHP, 0-3, 5.86)

GAME NOTES: Lube it up, Oakland.


Royals (16-18) @ Mariners (18-16), 10:10pm
KCR: Jason Vargas (#51, 31, LHP, 2-1, 3.50)
SEA: Brandon Maurer (#37, 23, RHP, 1-0, 6.92)

Marlins (20-15) @ Padres (15-21), 10:10pm
MIA: Jose Fernandez (#16, 21, RHP, 4-1, 1.74)
SDP: Tyson Ross (#38, 27, RHP, 3-3, 3.30)

GAME NOTES: Until further notice, the 2014 NL Cy Young Award has this kid's name written on it.


Giants (22-13) @ Dodgers (19-17), 10:10pm
SFG: Madison Bumgarner (#40, 24, LHP, 3-3, 3.18)
LAD: Paul Maholm (#47, 32, LHP, 1-2, 4.70)

GAME NOTES: Maholm, as in Gollum.
   3. boteman Posted: May 09, 2014 at 02:17 PM (#4703556)
Nationals (19-15) @ Athletics (20-15), 10:05pm
WSN: Doug Fister (#58, 30, RHP, 0-0, undef)
OAK: Tommy Milone (#57, 27, LHP, 0-3, 5.86)


This is actually former non-Nationals pitcher (undefeated) versus former Nationals pitcher (0-3). The Athletics don't stand a chance.
   4. SoCalDemon Posted: May 09, 2014 at 04:44 PM (#4703694)
Marlins (20-15) @ Padres (15-21), 10:10pm MIA: Jose Fernandez (#16, 21, RHP, 4-1, 1.74) SDP: Tyson Ross (#38, 27, RHP, 3-3, 3.30)


The padres have a 71 OPS+. I guess we are going to see what happens when an upstoppable force meets a completely movable object. So of course the Padres will probably win 10-6.
   5. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: May 09, 2014 at 04:56 PM (#4703708)
Eduardo Escobar is DHing for the Twins tonight.

For those unfamiliar with Escobar: If everything breaks right for him, he could have Luis Sojo's career.
   6. The Chronicles of Reddick Posted: May 09, 2014 at 05:18 PM (#4703719)
Strailey optioned and Cook goes on the DL


Oakland is starting to run out of pitchers here. Might have to make a trade soon unless they think that they have better options in AAA.
   7. SoCalDemon Posted: May 09, 2014 at 05:23 PM (#4703721)
Optioning Straily makes no sense to me. He seems like a perfectly cromulent starter, and I am not sure who they have that they expect to be better than him.
   8. Al Kaline Trio Posted: May 09, 2014 at 06:12 PM (#4703733)
They are putting Pomeranz into the rotation. I'm not sure he can hack it with only two pitches. He needs a cutter or changeup methinks.
   9. SoCalDemon Posted: May 09, 2014 at 06:50 PM (#4703746)
I personally don't think you option Straily to put Pomeranz in the starting rotation, but it is probably a wash in any case.
   10. Al Kaline Trio Posted: May 09, 2014 at 07:09 PM (#4703753)
I don't think so either but you can't really question the A's track record. If Pomeranz sticks that would be pretty good considering General Custer and Parker went down.

Also maybe with Straily's reduced velocity this year they will be giving him more rest / mechanical tweaks in AAA and he'll be back in a week or two.
   11. Moe Greene Posted: May 09, 2014 at 07:30 PM (#4703758)
Wow. I didn't realize how bad the Padres's offense has been. A 71 OPS+ combined with a pitchers' park... team batting average of .214. That's... pretty rotten.
   12. Al Kaline Trio Posted: May 09, 2014 at 07:33 PM (#4703760)
Raul Ibanez just stole a base.
   13. Moe Greene Posted: May 09, 2014 at 07:48 PM (#4703765)
Todd Frazier hit a HR that went a reported 485 feet. If true, that would put him on top of the Hit Tracker leaderboard for this year.
   14. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: May 09, 2014 at 07:56 PM (#4703766)
Mike Trout just hit a homer to center in Toronto that almost went through the stadium walls.
   15. Joey B. Posted: May 09, 2014 at 08:04 PM (#4703769)
I don't care a bit for these "Wires" commercials. They're a little creepy, they're not funny, and they make me NOT want to switch to DirecTV ever.
   16. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: May 09, 2014 at 08:49 PM (#4703775)
After a challenge in Toronto, the umps blow the call, and the Angels lose a run. Also, Community was cancelled today.

#worstdayever
   17. Canker Soriano Posted: May 09, 2014 at 08:55 PM (#4703777)
Also, Community was cancelled today.

Worst day ever indeed. It's the most connected I've felt to the characters on a TV show in about 25 years, and I'm just crushed that NBC isn't bringing it back (particularly given that they have nothing else to replace it, and their crop of new comedies for next year might as well come with the tag line "from the morons who brought you Animal Practice"). I'm holding out hope that they can strike a deal with Hulu or someone like FXX/TBS.

Plus, if ever a fanbase was poised to make the next Kickstarter movie, it would be this one.
   18. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:06 PM (#4703778)
I didn't think the show could survive losing both Pierce and Troy, but the show still managed. This past season was uneven, but it still managed to hit the highs more than most shows. Along with Parks and Rec, it was my favorite hour of comedy since... I dunno. At their best, Community and Parks and Rec are about as good as any comedy I've ever seen, and that includes Cosby, Cheers, etc.
   19. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:11 PM (#4703780)
PORT JERVIS!!!

Alex who???
   20. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:15 PM (#4703781)
Tied at 2 in the 7th of Angels-Jays. I predict a final score of 13-9.
   21. Blastin Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:23 PM (#4703783)
Solarte leads the Yankees with 18 RBI. Not that RBI matters much, but he does have a 130 OPS+
   22. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:27 PM (#4703785)
Always liked Solarte as a prospect--seemed like he got screwed over on playing time a lot, passed over for less talented players. Good to see him making the most of this opportunity.
   23. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:27 PM (#4703786)
I can't wait until Calhoun and Hamilton get back for the Angels. Batting the likes of Ian Stewart 6th and Colin Cowgill everyday is a real downer.
   24. Nats-Homer-in-DC Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:28 PM (#4703787)
Re: Cueto and LaRue.

Jason LaRue's wiki claims his defensive prowess. I recall for a time he led the league in passed balls and his clubs were high in wild pitches. Any old Reds fans recall the look test?
   25. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:34 PM (#4703788)
God, I hate using Instant Replay on a 2-out Bang-Bang play at first base. Just move on!
   26. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:38 PM (#4703789)
Seconded. After seeing that replay over and over, I still have no idea how to call it. Bang bang, it's over.
   27. Dan Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:42 PM (#4703791)
Darvish is going to throw a perfect game against the Red Sox tonight. You may not want to miss that.
   28. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:49 PM (#4703793)
Angels go to the bullpen, bullpen gives up a run. It's so automatic, it's almost hilarious if it weren't so pathetic.

I think I have this right: Of the Angels' 17 losses, they were either tied or in the lead after six innings in 13 of them.
   29. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:50 PM (#4703794)
Thanks, Dan.
   30. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:50 PM (#4703795)
Arenado's hit streak is over--drew a walk in his last opportunity (then any hopes for extra innings ended on a Votto Walkoff homer.
   31. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:51 PM (#4703796)
28--like I said, this is gonna be a 13-9 game. The blue Jay fans hate their pen too!
   32. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: May 09, 2014 at 09:57 PM (#4703798)
Still PERFECT for Yu.

Let's go Yu!!!
   33. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: May 09, 2014 at 10:04 PM (#4703800)
Damn, Mike Trout is FAST.

... but not fast enough to be safe at third.
   34. hokieneer Posted: May 09, 2014 at 10:06 PM (#4703802)
Vottos hr was on a 3-0 pitch and it went about 450 to dead center.

The best part was his on the field interview afterwards.

R: " joey, all 5 of your hr this year have been off lhp. What do you make of that?"
V: " who cares about that right now, we just won the game"
   35. puck Posted: May 09, 2014 at 10:09 PM (#4703804)
"joey, if the winning run were on base, would you have just kept the bat on your shoulder?"

OH ####
   43. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: May 09, 2014 at 10:31 PM (#4703821)
... that... that was rough. That's a hit, right?
   44. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: May 09, 2014 at 10:31 PM (#4703822)
PATHETIC from the Rangers there.

####### AWFUL.
   45. Dan Posted: May 09, 2014 at 10:31 PM (#4703824)
And Darvish is completely ###### by the defense.
   46. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: May 09, 2014 at 10:31 PM (#4703825)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
   47. Baldrick Posted: May 09, 2014 at 10:33 PM (#4703826)
If only there had been some guys on base, then it would have been an infield fly!

... that... that was rough.
Roughned!
   49. Jose Is The Most Absurd Thing on the Site Posted: May 09, 2014 at 10:37 PM (#4703830)
That was scored an error. That's an incorrect scoring decision. It was a crappy hit but that's the scoring decision.
   50. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: May 09, 2014 at 10:46 PM (#4703831)
At this point, I think I want Darvish to give up a hit, just so he doesn't have to throw 130+ in the game to throw (or not throw) a no-hitter ...
   51. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: May 09, 2014 at 10:46 PM (#4703832)
Home town pity ruling. I understand it.
   52. puck Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:01 PM (#4703835)
On MLB network they're quoting a rule that says that should be ruled an error, even though it hard ever is (or never is).
   53. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:02 PM (#4703836)
So scary to see Grady Sizemore dive for a ball.
   54. Dan Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:06 PM (#4703841)
On MLB network they're quoting a rule that says that should be ruled an error, even though it hard ever is (or never is).


By the rules, it's easy to see that as an error. That ball would've been caught with typical effort by the fielder. But it's NEVER called an error in practice. A ball that drops in without touching the fielder's glove has been unquestionably ruled a hit for ages.
   55. puck Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:06 PM (#4703842)
From Rule 10.12 a (1):

The official scorer shall charge an outfielder with an error if such outfielder allows a fly ball to drop to the ground if, in the official scorer?s judgment, an outfielder at that position making ordinary effort would have caught such fly ball.
   56. puck Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:07 PM (#4703843)
But it's NEVER called an error in practice.

Right, that's what I said. I had no idea it was in the rule book, though.
   57. Canker Soriano Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:08 PM (#4703844)
I really wish I could put Mitch Williams and Harold Reynolds on ignore. Their "analysis" of this has essentially turned into a YouTube comments section.
   58. Canker Soriano Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:10 PM (#4703845)
A ball that drops in without touching the fielder's glove has been unquestionably ruled a hit for ages.

I think most of the time, though, these balls drop in because the fielder loses sight of them - in the sun, in the crowd, in the roof, etc. Maybe that's enough to make it more than "normal effort". You very rarely see a guy jog over to a fly ball and just whiff entirely.

I was surprised they called it a hit, but I also had no idea that rule existed. Given that it does, I have no problem with the ruling.
   59. puck Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:10 PM (#4703846)
#57, that was pretty brutal.
   60. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:11 PM (#4703847)
1 out from a no-hitter.
   61. puck Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:11 PM (#4703848)
That pitch fooled Victorino a little.
   62. madvillain Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:12 PM (#4703849)
Jose Abreu through 36 games:

279/333/633

13hr, 12 doubles, 37 RBI.

On pace for 57/162

Fun facts:

He has the two longest HR at US Cellular this year, at 444 ft and 439 ft. He also has more HR than the Cubs have wins. Sorry, couldn't resist.

Sox go to 19-18 +6 in runs after smacking the Diamondbacks 9-3.
   63. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:13 PM (#4703851)
Papi breaks it up! Through the shift!

Tough for Darvish.
   64. puck Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:13 PM (#4703852)
Well, I guess that takes the controversy out of it.
   65. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:13 PM (#4703853)
David Ortiz. What a dick. He prevented Darvish from getting his first career complete game!
   66. SteveF Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:13 PM (#4703854)
Now they just need 10-11 more of those...in a row.
   67. Canker Soriano Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:14 PM (#4703855)
He's becoming the new Dave Stieb - 8.2 innings, but can't get to 9.

Of course Stieb got there eventually.
   68. Jose Is The Most Absurd Thing on the Site Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:15 PM (#4703856)
So does the scorer change the 7th inning call and give Ortiz a two hit night now?
   69. Random Transaction Generator Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:22 PM (#4703858)
Someone will explain to me why the Angels were able to come out of the dugout and signal to the umpires that they wanted a review on Trout being tagged out at third...in the 9th inning. I thought managerial challenges couldn't be issued after the 7th inning.

Edit: Found the rule text...

With respect to other reviewable calls (including calls at home plate in which the Crew Chief has not requested Replay Review of a potential Rule 7.13 violation), beginning in the seventh inning, a Crew Chief may, in his sole discretion, conduct Replay Review upon his own initiative or upon the request of a Manager who has no remaining Manager Challenges. These Replay Reviews are subject to the following:

1. A Club that has exhausted its Manager Challenges may request but cannot insist that the Crew Chief invoke his right to initiate Replay Review.


Request but cannot insist?

What the hell kind of language is that?
   70. Canker Soriano Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:22 PM (#4703859)
Harold Reynolds is like a petulant child. They should put him in a time out before he soils himself over this.

You can use your challenge at any time in the game. After the 7th inning begins, the umpires ALSO have the option to initiate a review on any play they see fit.
   72. Random Transaction Generator Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:25 PM (#4703863)
Manager: I politely request you check the replay on your call at third.
Ump: I don't want to.
Manager: But, I insist!
Ump: Well, now I definitely can't check the replay. You insisted!

Ah. Got it. I misread the 7th inning thing.

Thankfully I didn't insist...
   74. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: May 09, 2014 at 11:37 PM (#4703871)
As near as I can tell, there are three pitchers who have lost no-hitters with 2 outs in the 9th inning on multiple occasions:

Yu Darvish (duh)
Dave Stieb (also duh)
Bill Burns (wha? -- his other claim to fame was his role in the Black Sox scandal. Christopher Lloyd played him in Eight Men Out!)

Jose Fernandez gave up a grand slam and is out after five innings. Who had the Padres scoring six runs at Petco?

The padres have a 71 OPS+. I guess we are going to see what happens when an upstoppable force meets a completely movable object. So of course the Padres will probably win 10-6.


6-0 Padres so far.

Weird that Arias is playing first instead of 3B with Sandoval shifting across the diamond.

I had this one circled for the first no-hitter of the year. Oops!

Tell me about it. After I got tired of watching Doug Fister throw the ball somewhere in the general vicinity of the strike zone, I turned over to the Marlins game just in time to watch another sterling performance by J. Fernandez--only to watch him surrender a grand slam to some Gyorko playing for the Padres.

Puig with a long homer off Bumgarner...and Bumgarner & Posey were jawing at him as he crossed home plate. So sick of this nonsense. He admired it for about half a second.

Come listen to a story
'bout a man named Jedd,
started out OK,
but then he sh|t the bed.

Then one game
when the bases were all full
he smacked that ball
all the way out to the pool.
(If Petco Park had one, that is.
I'm talking about swimming pools,
movie stars, mashed taters...)

Agree, and now Mattingly got tossed during Hanley's AB. Puig's conduct was totally unmentionable. Bumgarner was looking to be annoyed by Puig.

When did that guy from Duck Dynasty sign with the Athletics?? He's a pretty good hitter, I gotta say.

Posey and Bumgarner are both from Georgia. Must be how they roll there.

don't forget Brian McCann (Athens, GA native).

Oh, I just assumed Brian McCann as a foregone conclusion.

East coast teams did not fare well on the west coast tonight. Must be the propeller lag.
