HOW WILL TOMMY LA STELLA DRIVE DAN UGGLA CRAZY TODAY?!

HOW WILL TOMMY LA STELLA DRIVE DAN UGGLA CRAZY TODAY?!


One out, men on 1st and 3rd, he hits a sac fly rather than GIDP.
   3. CFBF Is A Golden Spider Duck Posted: June 03, 2014 at 11:10 AM (#4717959)
Be fair to Dan. He probably strikes out in that situation.
   4. DA Baracus Posted: June 03, 2014 at 11:22 AM (#4717969)
I just assume in those situations he weakly grounds out, this way when he strikes out I am relieved.
   5. CFBF Is A Golden Spider Duck Posted: June 03, 2014 at 11:23 AM (#4717970)
Don't worry, DA. Soon enough Dan Uggla won't be able to hurt us any more.

Sounds like you might need an alibi. I'm here for you.

HOW MANY SPLINTERS WILL DANIEL NAVA GET IN HIS ASS WHILE JONNY GOMES STRIKES OUT?

Sounds like you might need an alibi. I'm here for you.

Well, you might be a D.A. but are you in his district???

In case you've missed the incessant hubub, bub, tonight marks the Glorious Return of Third Baseman Ryan Zimmerman to Left Field!11!!11! Our long Nationals nightmare is finally over. The Nats will go undefeated the rest of the season now.

Start of the new month(a couple of days ago) and league announcements came out.
NL Rookie of the month (a month in which he only played 13 games) Kolten Wong.
It's early so haven't seen the other announcements, but googling reveals it looks like Puig is the NL player of the month, and Encarnacion is the AL player of the month.
and George Springer is the AL rookie of the month
Tanaka has AL pitcher of the month
and
Madison Bumgarner gets NL pitcher of the month.
Wong had by far the least impressive month of all the award recipients. Baumgarner(5-0, 2.08) proves that wins is the big number as Samardzija(1-1, 1.32), Hudson(1-1, 1.46), and Tyson Ross(3-0, 2.08) had equal or better era.

Jason Lane is back in the big leagues. As a LHP.
   11. Dale Sams Posted: June 03, 2014 at 06:29 PM (#4718378)
Workman suspended 6 games for throwing behind Longo, Price nothing of course.
   12. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: June 03, 2014 at 07:36 PM (#4718406)
Ryan Howard must want off the Phillies so bad he just tried to get Ian Desmond to run all over his fingers. Howard dove for the 1B bag as the defender after going to the 2B hole to make the play instead of throwing over to the pitcher coming to cover 1B. Weird choice.
   13. cardsfanboy Posted: June 03, 2014 at 07:42 PM (#4718408)
Whitey is at the ballpark today, wonder if he'll be an in game interview.

Taveras with another hit.... if he can "energize" the team, that might be nice.
   14. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: June 03, 2014 at 07:45 PM (#4718409)
He's no Pete Kozma.
   15. cardsfanboy Posted: June 03, 2014 at 07:51 PM (#4718413)
Wong with his first major league homerun...4-0 Cardinals.

Grand slam is a nice way to celebrate winning rookie of the month.
   16. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: June 03, 2014 at 08:30 PM (#4718427)
1-0 brewers in the first. nothing fancy.
   17. cardsfanboy Posted: June 03, 2014 at 08:31 PM (#4718428)
I defend Matheny, because I think many people exaggerate his tendencies, but that was one of the dumbest moves I've seen since MGL wrote that article on dumbest managerial decisions(the article was dumb, not the decision). Garcia(Pitcher) leads off with a single. The hottest hitter on the team (by a mile) is Matt Carpenter and he sacrifices(there is a good chance this was Carpenter doing it on his own, but even then, you have to blame the manager for it). That is just so frustrating.

Jebus, somebody should tell Soriano about the rabbits and put us all out of his misery.
   19. stanmvp48 Posted: June 03, 2014 at 08:42 PM (#4718433)
Goldsmith not in AZ lineup. Hurt?
   20. cardsfanboy Posted: June 03, 2014 at 08:43 PM (#4718434)
Garcia had a very good 4 innings, and not so good 5th inning as the Royals are getting extra base hits (or advancing to second on the throw thanks to Holliday throwing it to the wrong bag.) 4-3 Cardinals man on third two outs...hopefully Garcia can get out of the inning with the lead intact. (Shields has two hits)
   21. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: June 03, 2014 at 08:45 PM (#4718435)
Ryne Sandberg IBB LaRoche with Rendon on 2B to get to the Nats' new left fielder Ryan Zimmerman, who then smokes a ball into the RF corner for an RBI double. 4-0 Nats. Who could've seen that coming???
   22. cardsfanboy Posted: June 03, 2014 at 08:48 PM (#4718436)
sonuvabeech....6-4 Royals.... still batting in the fifth.
   23. cardsfanboy Posted: June 03, 2014 at 08:59 PM (#4718441)
Royals defense isn't helping them too much today, Cardinals tie it up in the bottom of the 5th.... looks like it's going to be one of those games.
   24. mathesond Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:02 PM (#4718442)
Nice little pitcher's duel going on in Detroit
   25. mathesond Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:04 PM (#4718443)
And as soon as I mention the pitcher's duel, Joba comes in for Sanchez. Anibal went 7, giving up 2 hits, 0 walks, 5 Ks and 0 runs
   26. Edmundo got dem ol' Kozma blues again mama Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:07 PM (#4718444)
I come home from my history book club to find the Phils with 2 hits in 7 innings, trailing 7-0 to the Natinals. Boy, this season is going to be long.
   27. cardsfanboy Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:11 PM (#4718448)
Must be the day of weak hitters hitting homeruns. Bourjos gives the Cardinals a 7-6 lead.
   28. mathesond Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:12 PM (#4718449)
And the Jays go to the bullpen as well - 7 scoreless innings, 3H, 0BB, 7K.

So far the combined bullpens have been perfect - granted, they've only combined to face 4 hitters
   29. mathesond Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:32 PM (#4718459)
the dribbliest of dribblers (of the bat of Bautista, no less) bringa home Gose with a run.

And now Nathan tries to pick off Reyes at 3rd. Call is safe (going to review), and Bautista moves up to 2nd with no one watching
   30. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:32 PM (#4718460)
8th inning guys. That's what it's all about.
   31. vortex of dissipation Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:38 PM (#4718464)
Wil Myers - fractured wrist, out six weeks.
   32. mathesond Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:45 PM (#4718465)
Lawrie hits a 3-run shot, putting the Jays up 5-0 heading to the bottom of the ninth
   33. mathesond Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:54 PM (#4718469)
And now Delabar walks the first two hitters. Janssen warming up for the second time tonight
   34. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:55 PM (#4718471)
Night of the Zimmerman(n)s in D.C.

Jordan Zimmerman goes 8 innings, shuts out Phillies on 6 hits while Ryan Zimmerman makes his first Major League start in left field, making a couple nice catches and absolutely smoking the ball in the batter's box 2-4 with 2 doubles. Welcome back to the lineup indeed!
   35. cardsfanboy Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:55 PM (#4718472)
Hands down our best reliever of the year, of course allows the Royals to tie it up.....7-7 top of the 8th....
   36. mathesond Posted: June 03, 2014 at 09:57 PM (#4718473)
Delabar gives up a 2-out, 3-run homer. Janssen time...
   37. mathesond Posted: June 03, 2014 at 10:00 PM (#4718474)
Delabar gives up a 2-out, 3-run homer. Janssen time...

Janssen strikes out Don Kelly on 3 pitches, and the Jays have won 3 in a row
   38. Chris Fluit Posted: June 03, 2014 at 10:03 PM (#4718477)
Kipnis picked off but manages to steal second anyway when the throw hits him in the back. Then, Kipnis is caught in a rundown between second and third but manages to get back to second when Bogaerts falls down.

Edit to clarify- that was consecutive plays, not the same play
   39. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: June 03, 2014 at 10:11 PM (#4718481)
Dellin', dealin'!!!
   40. Every Inge Counts Posted: June 03, 2014 at 10:11 PM (#4718482)
So Joe Nathan is toast. Probably because Detroit signed him to be our ####### closer.
   41. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: June 03, 2014 at 10:23 PM (#4718485)
This Yankees' offense makes me want to inject bleach into my eyes ...
   42. chisoxcollector Posted: June 03, 2014 at 10:29 PM (#4718490)
Say what you will about Hawk, but he is one of the few broadcasters that goes on and on about how much he loves how Puig plays the game. Defends his bat flips and everything.
   43. Joey B.: posting for the kids of northeast Ohio Posted: June 03, 2014 at 10:40 PM (#4718497)
I've come to the conclusion that Ruben Amaro Junior is my favorite non-Nationals person in all of baseball.

May you live and rule the Phillies forever, Ruben Amaro Junior.
   44. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: June 03, 2014 at 10:45 PM (#4718499)
Ron Washington keeps pushing bullpen buttons, but it just aint werkin. They're getting dinked, donked, and banged to death. Now 5-2 Orioles.
   45. DKDC Posted: June 03, 2014 at 11:00 PM (#4718501)
Nelson Cruz jack #21 was not a dink or a donk.
   46. Dale Sams Posted: June 03, 2014 at 11:34 PM (#4718505)
BAHAHAHA a guy with an OBP of .411 last year vs righties (Nava) apparently is less likely to get on base than Alex "Four strikeouts" Hassan and a guy who hasn't had an OPS+ north of 100 in 5 years. (Sizemore) Based on a whopping months worth of ABs.
