Not at the rate he's going: three runs allowed, still in the 1st inning...

BJ Upton triples in Aaron Harang, just as we all predicted.

HOW WILL THE ANGELS' C.J. WILSON MELT DOWN TODAY?
   4. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: June 29, 2014 at 03:44 PM (#4739038)
... apparently just by giving up a bunch of hits.

... and a a walk with the bases loaded.

Getting tired of your ####, C.J. Fourth bad outing in his last six starts.

The Oakland Athletics SWEEP the Miami Marlins, a sentence that I never envisioned typing in my life.

Why? Oakland is beastly and Miami is... not.

Matt Joyce is 5-5 with 2 HRs today.

Howie Kendrick boots away an easy DP, and the Angels lose. It's #### like this that they do and the A's don't that sets the two teams apart. The A's do all the basic stuff right. They catch the ball, they pitch, they have a bullpen, and don't cart around holes in their lineup. The Angels LOOK like they're a real contender, but they give away game after game after game after game.

Sergio Romo FIRED from closer job in S.F., now they're relying on some guy named Committee.

Kershaw at 28 consecutive scoreless innings now.

The LOLPhillies get 2 solo circuit clouts from Marlon Byrd, 11 other hits and score a total of 2 runs.

Speaking of Marlon Byrd, I am reminded of this post from the now-closed thread on the Phillies signing Byrd:
5. Davo Dozier Posted: November 12, 2013 at 02:29 PM (#4598729)
If Marlon Byrd is still an everyday player by August, I will eat my shoe.

It's not August, yet, but perhaps close enough to start planning the shoe eating ceremony?
   13. Bote Man makes baseball fun again Posted: June 29, 2014 at 08:30 PM (#4739326)
Davo Dozier cleverly qualified it "by August" knowing that the non-waiver trade deadline would save him in the nick of time. Still, it might be prudent to gather up some Grey Poupon, and perhaps even some bananas and mayonnaise, as shoe condiments just in case.

Davo Dozier cleverly qualified it "by August" knowing that the non-waiver trade deadline would save him in the nick of time.

I don't see where "with the Phillies" is a condition of Dozier's entertaining offer, just Byrd being "an everyday player". I certainly hope this doesn't turn out like Lazzeri's "dollar bucks" offer, which I'm still waiting on.

Not that they'll have any more save opportunities this season, or so it would seem.

The Dodgers just wiped out a 9.5 game deficit while playing just 20 games. Last year it took them 25 games to do that during their miracle 42-8 run.

Then again, last year's team went 20-5 in wiping out the deficit, while this year's team went 14-6, so you can decide which was more impressive.

#14 - Apologies. I must've inserted "with the Phillies" where it did not appear.

Still, if he puts together enough of a dead cat bounce to attract trade interest, I wonder if the team acquiring him would indeed play him as a starter? I'm assuming only contenders would trade for him so they would likely have decent starters already, else they wouldn't be contenders, and only want Byrd as a bench bat. That alone might save shoe eating. This should prove interesting to watch.

I think Dave should go with a sandal - less to consume.

Big Papi his No. 450.

There was a time a few years ago when I thought he was done. Now, I can see him getting to 500.

Joe Girardi is going to be the Yankees manager for 30 years, isn't he? Could anything happen that would lead to him either getting fired or quitting?

This Red Sox-Yankees game is going to go on well past midnight, isn't it? I guess that's as good a reason as any to head over to the brew pub before they close for the night.
