Well, I guess someone can deep-six the Omnichatter link I submitted, now.

The Royals have faced four Cy Young winners in the last week - Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Zack Greinke, and Clayton Kershaw. Surprisingly, they did go 3-1 in those games, losing only last night to Kershaw.

Today they get to face a random schlub like Dan Haren.

Gamingboy: by popular consensus we are switching to a WEEKLYCHATTER since we are just not getting our money's worth from these daily OMNICHATTER posts that have shamefully gone A.W.O.L.

Then during the post-season you can post daily OMNICHATTER threads as they will be substantially CHATTER-y-er.

Unless you don't wanna.

Cardinals place Joe Kelly on the 60 day DL, this was done to make room for Marcos Gonzales today's starter, it has nothing to do with his condition worsening. Kozma DFA'd....passed through waivers unclaimed(I'm kinda shocked by that to be honest). I think the Cardinals might have been hoping someone would have claimed him, and try to promote Diaz to AAA, he's held his own at AA, but I would assume he is being fast tracked.
   5. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 02:16 PM (#4735325)
And I have to correct myself on yesterday's chatter I said that the Cardinals were rumored(along with a ton of other teams) to be pursuing Shields.... and I meant to say Price. (All those AL pitchers look alike to me.)

Are we supposed to eat a hot bowl of omnichowder when we omnichatter?
   7. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: June 25, 2014 at 02:36 PM (#4735354)
It's chowdah!
   8. morineko Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:04 PM (#4735390)
This bottom of the second in the Brewers game is the most Brewers thing ever. Scooter Gennett hits a grand slam and Jean Segura gets caught stealing for the third out.
   9. Rickey! trades in sheep and threats Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:11 PM (#4735400)
The Braves are batting BJ Upton leadoff. Until this either works or ceases, I am boycotting baseball.
   10. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:15 PM (#4735404)
Cardinals/Rockies are featuring two starting pitchers making their major league debut. Yohan Flande for the Rockies, and Marco Gonzales for the Cardinals.....Flande was a minor league free agent, started with the Phillies and moved to the Braves and spent 9 seasons in the minors.... Gonzales was the Cardinals first round draft pick from last season....different expectations going forward for these two, will be interesting to see how this game pans out.
   11. boteman Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:17 PM (#4735406)
The Brewers have not been swept this season. The Nationals hope to change that this afternoon. They played 16 innings last night so we shall see who got their rest and who went out partying.

Ho boy. Looks like Strasburg went out partying. :-(

edit: (This post sat in my buffer until well after the game started. That's what you get for scheduling work stuff during baseball games.)
   12. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:33 PM (#4735435)
MLB's Gameday can't recognize Marco Gonzalez's 80-mph "fastball" as a changeup..

Facing Tulo he threw three pitches, all changeups, and Tulo swung over all three.
   13. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:33 PM (#4735436)
Nice first inning from Gonzales routine grounder, and two strikeouts.....the "Rockies" fans are rooting for him more than either team. (He is from Colorado, and was on a team which won 4 state championships.....his father now works for the Rockies)
   14. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:40 PM (#4735452)
Flande strikes out the side in the second inning...good ole fashioned pitchers duel brewing in Colorado....:)
   15. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:44 PM (#4735459)
f'ing in game interview....missed another play as they are having an inane conversation with Marco Gonzales dad.
   16. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:49 PM (#4735466)
missed another play as they are having an inane conversation with Marco Gonzales dad.

I never understood why we can't just hear the interview, rather than being subjected to watching some guy sitting in the stands answering questions from a concerned looking man holding a microphone.. while live game action is taking place off-camera... Exciting!
   17. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:49 PM (#4735468)
And now a double for the kid in his first ML at bat!
   18. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:49 PM (#4735469)
Gonzales having a nice day so far, leadoff double for him in the third inning.
   19. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:50 PM (#4735472)
And now footage of the kid's dad standing up in the stands, watching the flight of the ball, and clapping!

Exactly. I hate the interview itself, as it seems to imply "this sport is so boring, we have to fill it up with other crap"...but if you are going to do an interview, WHY show the person in the stands?
   21. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:51 PM (#4735475)
Gonzalez looks like he's about 18 years old. Or he would look 18, if he had started shaving.
   22. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:52 PM (#4735477)
Great stop by LeMahieu off a shot by Matt Carpenter to maybe save a run...
   23. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:53 PM (#4735478)
Nice play by the Rockies second baseman.... There has been some excellent defense from both teams in this series.
   24. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:54 PM (#4735482)
Gonzalezs


Fixed that for you....:)

Holliday gives the Cardinals a 1-0 lead.
   25. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 03:58 PM (#4735489)
Thanks, CFB.
   26. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 04:13 PM (#4735510)
Some nice defense by the Rockies second baseman today.....
   27. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 04:15 PM (#4735512)
Five Seven two-strike fouls in a row for Bourjos...

EDIT: and then a grounder to 3rd
   28. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 04:20 PM (#4735526)
Uh oh, Marco loses the no-hitter, the shutout, and the lead with his first pitch in the 4th to Drew Stubbs.
   29. boteman Posted: June 25, 2014 at 04:20 PM (#4735528)
This thread comes home to roost on the road in Milwaukee as Strasburg loads the bases, then surrenders and grand salami to Khris Davis; that was way back in the 2nd inning. He didn't make it out of the 5th after loading the bases again with 2 outs and has been replaced by overnight call-up Taylor Hill making his MLB debut.

Harveys is stirring his gin fizz with his finger and smiling widely.

I'm frankly OK with the Nats taking 2 out of 3 against the red-hot Brewers. A sweep would have been very nice and with Strasburg going you have to believe everyone figured as much. But he must not have gotten enough of his beauty sleep last night or maybe the clubhouse ran out of Grey Poupon so he was bound to have a bad outing on the mound. Oh, the problems of the rich and famous.
   30. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 04:34 PM (#4735554)
Rough fourth for Gonzales---Six of the seven batters have reached so far, 4-1, Rox.
   31. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 04:50 PM (#4735576)
OK, Matt Adams with a 2-run shot (to the opposite field!) brings the Birds to within a run. That's his 6th HR in 12 starts since coming off the DL less than two weeks ago, after having just three homers total through May...
   32. boteman Posted: June 25, 2014 at 05:35 PM (#4735649)
Tim Lincecum has a 2-hitter going in SF--at the plate. He's even better on the mound.
   33. The Chronicles of Reddick Posted: June 25, 2014 at 05:37 PM (#4735653)
Lincecum with 2 hits and a no-hitter through 7
   34. salvomania Posted: June 25, 2014 at 05:41 PM (#4735659)
Lincecum with 2 hits and a no-hitter through 7

And only at 87 pitches---I figured he'd already be well over 100.
   35. boteman Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:08 PM (#4735691)
The Timmeh batting for himself in the 8th draws a standing ovation.

edit: Then draws a bigger ovation when he draws a 4-pitch walk.

The Padres: good for what ails ya.
   36. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:19 PM (#4735700)
Matt Adams with a stolen base...it was like watching a walrus run on two legs. Cardinals have the lead over the Rockies, 7-6 with no outs and man on third in the ninth inning, would be nice to get some insurance runs.
   37. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:20 PM (#4735701)
I bet Lincecum is wishing he'd shaved his mustache before the game today.
   38. Bourbon Samurai Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:22 PM (#4735704)
Are the Pads about to get no hit for the second time in like a week?
   39. Dale Sams Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:22 PM (#4735705)
Just tuned into the SF game at random..."9th inning, Lincecum still on the mound...man the crowd is really into this...don't tell me...(Checks box score)"
   40. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:23 PM (#4735707)
Are the Pads about to get no hit for the second time in like a week?


Second time by Lincecum in the past 12 months.
   41. Bourbon Samurai Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:23 PM (#4735708)
Kozma DFA'd....passed through waivers unclaimed(I'm kinda shocked by that to b


Nats should have claimed him and then had Teddy ritually sacrifice him
   42. Bourbon Samurai Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:24 PM (#4735709)
Nice! That's awesome! The Padres suck
   43. boteman Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:24 PM (#4735711)
Teh Timmeh just completed a masterful no-hitter against the Padres.

And I think you know how we feel about Pete F. Kozma.
   44. Dale Sams Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:26 PM (#4735712)
Who else has thrown 2 no-hitters in the same time period in which they had an approximate ERA+ of 74?
   45. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:26 PM (#4735713)
Nice game Timmeh....

Meanwhile the Rockies are blowing the game against the Cardinals....and I just found out, if you put the game on mlb.tv onto the split screen, the pause, rewind feature actually works(it doesn't work for me live, full screen)
   46. AndrewJ Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:28 PM (#4735715)
Congratulations, Tim. Now go get a haircut.
   47. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:33 PM (#4735722)
Great bit of trivia....Cardinals are the only team in baseball who have not won at least one game this season, when trailing after 6 innings. (If the score holds up, that will no longer be the case)
   48. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:35 PM (#4735725)
Tim Lincecum....Deuces wild....2 no-hitters, 2 Cy Youngs, 2 World Series....Pretty interesting from Dan McLaughlin(weird for me to say that)
   49. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:40 PM (#4735732)
I never knew the origin of the Rockies mascot, even the name digger fits in well with that story.

edit:oops, the name is Dinger, not Digger...digger would have made sense...not sure wtf is a dinger(homerun I know, not sure how it works with a dinosaur)
   50. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:44 PM (#4735736)
Since the start of the 2012 season, Tim Lincecum has an ERA+ of 72. About the same as Jose Lima’s the year he gave up 48 homers.
   51. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:46 PM (#4735741)

I'm at citi field and now the A's spending more for brad mills than I spent for my ticket doesn't seem so funny.
   53. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 06:56 PM (#4735752)
Cardinals win....last team in baseball to have a post 6th inning comeback for a victory.
Identify the team from this description of their mascot.

3. Orbit (an alien)
4. Lou (a seal)

3. probably a minor league team from Roswell
4. Giants?
5.
6.
7.Rockies
8. Nationals(just read an article on Dingers origins, and these were listed as two mascots that need to die)
9.
10.

that is pretty much the extent of my guess's. The bobcat one, seems like one I should know.
   54. Dale Sams Posted: June 25, 2014 at 07:21 PM (#4735781)
5. Padres (Baxter...stay classy..)?
6. Is the Royals.
   55. Shooty Survived the Shutdown of '14! Posted: June 25, 2014 at 07:21 PM (#4735783)
Brandon moss! I made a few mets fans angry with my happy dance. Luckily there are only a few mets fans here.
   56. PreservedFish Posted: June 25, 2014 at 07:29 PM (#4735790)
6. I remember the Royals having a lion. It's a regal animal.
9. The Cubs?
   57. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 07:36 PM (#4735795)
6. Is the Royals.

6. I remember the Royals having a lion. It's a regal animal.


Makes sense.

9. The Cubs?

That is what I was thinking, but just forgot to list it.
   58. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: June 25, 2014 at 07:49 PM (#4735802)
Correct Answers so far through #57:

1. Stomper (an elephant): Athletics (cardsfanboy)
4. Lou (a seal): Giants (cardsfanboy)
6. Sluggerr (a lion): Royals (dale sams)
7. Dinger (a triceratops): Rockies (cardsfanboy)
8. Screech (an eagle): Nationals (cardsfanboy)

For those interested in such things, Virginia and Vanderbilt are playing for the NCAA baseball championship in a few minutes. They split the first two games, so this is the championship game.

In other news, Yohan Flande is my new favorite baseball player because his name is awesome.
   60. Where have you gone Brady Anderson? Posted: June 25, 2014 at 08:00 PM (#4735809)
TC is the Twins mascot. TC...twin cities.
   61. Shooty Survived the Shutdown of '14! Posted: June 25, 2014 at 08:08 PM (#4735812)
Huey Lewis and the news at citi field July 12th! I'm actually going to that game!
   62. Snowboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 08:09 PM (#4735813)
4-Lou Seal is the mascot for the Giants, per the seals who sun themselves on Fisherman's Wharf, and as a nod to the PCL Seals.

Bo Jackson is in the booth at the Jays game, in town for the Joe Carter charity golf tournament. Lots of reminiscing; color guy Pat Tabler was his teammate in 1988 when he hit 3 HRs in a game against the Yankees and separated his shoulder before he could bat for a fourth. Tabby says the now-usual line from so many of Bo's teammates and opponents: you did things on the field that I've never seen done by anyone else in my lifetime.
   63. Every Inge Counts Posted: June 25, 2014 at 08:23 PM (#4735816)
J.D. Martinez apparently changed his swing completely this off-season...and it has paid off quite well for him. He has been on a tear the past couple of weeks.
   64. Shooty Survived the Shutdown of '14! Posted: June 25, 2014 at 08:30 PM (#4735819)
Brad mills is getting it done, but seems like smoke and mirrors. Long May it continue, of course.
   65. Snowboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 08:57 PM (#4735833)
I don't really enjoy Buck Martinez as the Jays PBP guy (I liked him doing color, and although he's gotten better I feel he's constantly nervous) but sometimes he'll drop the robot act and reveal his human side. He just did, letting his ex-player roots show, responding to the note that Derek Jeter has 533 doubles, and Gehrig is next to pass on the all-time list.
Buck: "How do you do that?"
[not waiting for an answer...Buck debuted in 1969, so he's slightly bewildered, slightly in awe]
Buck: "How do you get yourself into a sentence with Lou Gehrig?"
   66. Kurt Posted: June 25, 2014 at 09:10 PM (#4735840)
Orbit has to be the Astros.
   67. Snowboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 09:25 PM (#4735847)
Top 7, Yankees lead Jays 5-3.
Both teams have had their hitting shoes on tonight, and without a few hard hits right at fielders the score would be even higher.
Kuroda and Hutchison have made a few good pitches when it mattered, but they've been dancing from opening pitch.
Hutch is out of the game, Kuroda is just barely hanging on, probably due to Jays injury depleted lineup.
   68. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: June 25, 2014 at 09:27 PM (#4735848)
Oops, missed a couple:

9. TC (a bear): Twins (brady anderson)
3. Orbit (an alien): Astros (Kurt)

So the only ones left--I'll put the answers in Spoiler-Text

2. Captain (a palomino horse): Rangers
5. Baxter (a bobcat): Diamondbacks
10. DJ Kitty (a cat): Rays
   69. Snowboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 09:29 PM (#4735850)
OK Kuroda is also now out of the game.
Shawn Kelley comes in with 1 out, 1 on, leading 5-3, to face Jose Reyes.
   70. Rob_Wood Posted: June 25, 2014 at 09:35 PM (#4735852)
If anybody is watching the Tigers/Rangers game on ESPN, Rick Sutcliffe just said that Miguel Cabrera was the best hitter in baseball history. I do not think it is possible for me to dislike an announcer more than I "dislike" Sutcliffe.

YMMV
   71. Snowboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 09:40 PM (#4735853)
Trailing 5-3, 2 on, Yanks bring in lefty Matt Thornton to face lefty Adam Lind.
On first pitch Jays send the runners, Anthony Gose steals third and Jose Reyes follows him into second.
(Good throw by Cervelli, and Girardi with the now-requisite trot onto the field to ask the umpire what he had for dinner last night (ie pretend to challenge the play, but not actually ask for a replay)
All for naught...Thornton gets Lind to ground out and end the inning.
   72. Where have you gone Brady Anderson? Posted: June 25, 2014 at 09:43 PM (#4735854)
I bet Captain is the Rangers.
   73. Snowboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 09:48 PM (#4735856)
Next inning, Yanks send Kelly Johnson to steal second.
He's clearly out, but again Girardi comes out of the dugout and asks everybody about their dinner, their kids, their pets, or whatever, before retreating to the dugout without issuing a challenge.
Yanks do not score, continue to lead 5-3, going bottom 8; Adam Warren coming in? I was expecting Betances-Robertson, I guess Betances is unavailable after 45 pitches yday.
   74. Snowboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 09:56 PM (#4735861)
David Robertson is in for NYY, 1 on, asked for a 5-out save.
   75. Every Inge Counts Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:03 PM (#4735863)
V-Mart and JD Martinez go back to back against the Rangers.
   76. Snowboy Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:13 PM (#4735867)
NYY Robertson gets it done and gets the save, but Jays still win the series.
   77. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:15 PM (#4735869)
Vandy leads UVa 2-0 through 5 1/2. Carson Fulmer has been outstanding for the Commodores (one hit through 5), as has Arnie Lisicki in relief for the Cavs.

-- MWE
   78. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:19 PM (#4735871)
Cavaliers are being really aggressive; there have been at least a half-dozen swings at pitches well out of the strike zone, including a leadoff single by Robbie Coman in the bottom of the sixth. Fulmer is at 87 pitches.

-- MWE
   79. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:22 PM (#4735877)
ESPN has its pitch tracker turned on throughout the ABs in the CWS game.

   80. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:25 PM (#4735878)
Difference between the college game and the pros: Vanderbilt has closer Adam Ravenelle loosening in the sixth. RBI single for Daniel Pinero cuts the lead to 2-1, one out B6.

-- MWE
   81. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:32 PM (#4735883)
Fulmer out after walking Mike Papi. 103 pitches, 5 1/3 IP. Hayden Stone in for Vandy, two on, 1 out.

-- MWE
   82. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:36 PM (#4735886)
Third pitch by Stone hits Joe McCarthy. Bases loaded, one out, Derek Fisher (3-25 in CWS) up.

-- MWE
   83. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:38 PM (#4735888)
Big K of Fisher. Up to Kenny Towns for Cavs.

-- MWE
   84. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:41 PM (#4735889)
SS Vince Conde drops Towns's liner. Run scores, tied at 2. It wasn't all that easy to catch (sinking liner) but play should have been made.

-- MWE
   85. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:43 PM (#4735890)
2-2 after 6. CWS comes down to the last three innings.

-- MWE
   86. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 10:52 PM (#4735896)
For a low-scoring game without many hits, this game is dragging. Coming up on three hours and it's only the top of the 7th.

Cavs get the leadoff man on for the second straight inning. UVa's offense has had a lot of late-inning lightning in the first two games.

Top of the order coming up, runner on 2nd, one out for Virginia after a Coman SH.

Since I tend to bash on the Dodgers' bullpen here frequently, it's only fair to commend Jaime Wright for his performance today. Nice way to keep the team in the game. And maybe get a rare win for the 'pen.

Stone gets Ks of Brandon Cogswell and Pinero to hold the 2-2 tie through 7.

UVa goes to closer Nick Howard (19th overall draft pick) in the 8th. Wonder what the Reds think of this.

who is tiger's third base coach? two nights in a row got a player thrown out at home by at least 25 feet!
   94. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 11:15 PM (#4735910)
John Norwood with a one-out rocket down the left field line, and Vandy goes up 3-2.

-- MWE

EDIT: First HR for either team in the CWS, only the third overall, and Vandy's first HR in over a month.

And again, UVa with the leadoff man on base; Papi single through the SS hole. 4-5 hitters coming up.

Four-pitch walk to McCarthy. First and second, no outs. Ravenelle coming in for the Commodores.

-- MWE
   98. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 11:33 PM (#4735922)
Fastball gets away from Ravenelle, HBP of Towns. Cavs have bases loaded again. First HBP of season by Ravenelle.

-- MWE
   99. Mike Emeigh Posted: June 25, 2014 at 11:36 PM (#4735923)
LoPreise grounds back to Ravenelle. Should have been a 1-2-3 DP, but Ravenelle couldn't get the ball out of the glove quickly enough. Brandon Downes then grounds out on the next pitch. Going to the 9th.

And Brian Wilson gets the save!
