Houston would have passed Boston in the standings if Detroit hadn't blown the game last night. Houston is now 1% according to BP playoff odds

The Braves are in Denver this week for a four-gamer, which means I'll be able to get out to Coors Field for a game or two. And I'll be wearing my nifty Braves' shirt. COME AT ME, DENVER!

WHO WILL MANNY MACHADO TRY TO INJURE TODAY?
   4. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: June 09, 2014 at 03:30 PM (#4722013)
himself

Been there, done that.

HOW WILL THE BLUE JAYS GET SHUT OUT TODAY?
   7. Willie Mayspedester Posted: June 09, 2014 at 03:57 PM (#4722047)
That whole episode in Baltimore would have been more fun against the Angels. Maybe the A's can start a hatred towards Josh Hamilton or the evil David Freese!
   8. sardonic Posted: June 09, 2014 at 04:36 PM (#4722090)
It'll be hard for me to hate Hamilton after he gifted us the division in the last game of the season in 2012.

Robothal Knows Baltimore:

@Ken_Rosenthal: Heard from two sources that Wieters' throwing program with Orioles not going well and that surgery looks increasingly likely. However, a third source says it is too early to make a determination, that Wieters is having good days and bad.

Decision on Orioles’ Machado expected tomorrow. Suspension virtually certain.


Rockobako adds:
@masnRoch: Wieters seeing Dr Andrews next Monday. Still some discomfort in elbow
   10. Willie Mayspedester Posted: June 09, 2014 at 05:19 PM (#4722120)
Bummer about Weiters hope he gets that fixed through rehab or misses the minimum amount of time if he needs TJ.

I don't think Machado will forever be known for his antics last weekend. They weren't that bad and hopefully won't become the norm (which would be really bad).

Seattle has fourth best record in the league. That doesn't seem right.
   12. CFBF Is A Golden Spider Duck Posted: June 09, 2014 at 05:50 PM (#4722131)
Seattle has fourth best record in the league. That doesn't seem right.


Should be sixth-best?
   13. Perry Posted: June 09, 2014 at 06:04 PM (#4722144)
This Rockies injury thing is getting beyond absurd. Today they not only DL'd Cuddyer, but Eddie Butler, whose one start resulted in a strained rotator cuff.
   14. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 09, 2014 at 06:42 PM (#4722166)

Diamondbacks DFA Trevor Cahill to whom they owe $20 million over the next two seasons.
   16. TerpNats Posted: June 09, 2014 at 07:31 PM (#4722182)
Imagine a postseason with no AL East wild-cards. I wonder if you can.
   17. Davo Dozier Posted: June 09, 2014 at 08:06 PM (#4722196)
Y'all are aware that Brian Dozier has 28 homers, 40 doubles, 80 walks and 21 steals over the past year, right?
   18. Davo Dozier Posted: June 09, 2014 at 08:16 PM (#4722199)
So far this year, after getting ahead in the count 1-0, Joe Mauer is hitting .220/.363/.317.
   19. CFBF Is A Golden Spider Duck Posted: June 09, 2014 at 08:39 PM (#4722205)
Forever funny


I felt kind of bad going for the most obvious line, but when it's sooooo obvious....
   20. Fred Lynn Nolan Ryan Sweeney Agonistes Posted: June 09, 2014 at 08:50 PM (#4722208)
So far this year, after getting ahead in the count 1-0, Joe Mauer is hitting .220/.363/.317.

This reminded me, I hadn't checked in awhile - on an 0-2 count, for his career Dustin Pedroia is now at 285 / 286 /386. That seems crazy good.
   21. CFBF Is A Golden Spider Duck Posted: June 09, 2014 at 08:59 PM (#4722211)
The Braves have hit a couple flyballs to the warning track already. But it's hard to curse your bad luck when you hit warning track flyballs in Coors Field.
   22. Baldrick Posted: June 09, 2014 at 09:11 PM (#4722218)
Chone Figgins is still in baseball? What?
   23. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: June 09, 2014 at 09:18 PM (#4722221)
Figgins is not only still in baseball; his OBP is crazy high.

Also, Scott Van Slyke is continuing his lefty mashing ways.
   24. Jolly Old St. Nick Is A Jolly Old St. Crip Posted: June 09, 2014 at 09:32 PM (#4722229)
Now why can't the ####### Orioles play like this every night? Yes, it was only the lowly Red Sox, but still....
   25. Every Inge Counts Posted: June 09, 2014 at 09:33 PM (#4722230)
Really like Eugenio Suarez right now. Making a great impression at least for the time being.
   26. Obo Posted: June 09, 2014 at 09:48 PM (#4722236)
Twins tie it up vs. Jays and Janssen loses his zero ERA.
   27. madvillain Posted: June 09, 2014 at 09:50 PM (#4722239)
It's getting a little rediculous with Jose Abreu, he's a two true outcome guy right now -- K or HR. He has an ISO over 350 and a OBP below 310. Weird combo.
   28. Davo Dozier Posted: June 09, 2014 at 09:55 PM (#4722241)
20-- on my phone so can't get exact, but believe Matt Carpenter is a career .300 hitter after falling behind 0-2.
   29. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: June 09, 2014 at 10:07 PM (#4722243)
This bullpen...
   30. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: June 09, 2014 at 10:22 PM (#4722248)
The Rays have the worst record in baseball. That doesn't seem right.

The Astros are just 1 game back of the Red Sox. Last year, they finished 46 games back of the Red Sox. But they didn't have George Springer back then, and he is ALL THAT IS MAN.
   31. Joey B.: posting for the kids of northeast Ohio Posted: June 09, 2014 at 10:22 PM (#4722249)
Time to run the gauntlet. No excuses; let's get it done.
   32. CFBF Is A Golden Spider Duck Posted: June 09, 2014 at 10:23 PM (#4722250)
Gavin Floyd is pitching really well. There's been some speculation that the Braves might deal him.
   33. CFBF Is A Golden Spider Duck Posted: June 09, 2014 at 10:34 PM (#4722254)
I just found out that there's going to be an Assassin's Creed game set in the French Revolution. Hard to overstate how excited I am by that. I was hoping ACIII would be a French Revolution story.

We're smacking the ball hard all over the place on Vogelsong early baby.
   35. Crispix reaches boiling point with lackluster play Posted: June 09, 2014 at 10:41 PM (#4722258)
Gregory Polanco is being called up to the Pirates as of tomorrow. I like his Twitter handle.
   36. Davo Dozier Posted: June 09, 2014 at 10:48 PM (#4722262)
#20: Found them!

In his career, after falling behind 0-2, Matt Carpenter has hit .294/.323/.429. That is astounding!
   37. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 09, 2014 at 10:52 PM (#4722267)
Now why can't the ####### Orioles play like this every night? Yes, it was only the lowly Red Sox, but still....

It's hard to remember, but Yankee fans need to root for the also-ran Red Sox when they play the contending Orioles.

   40. Der-K and the statistical werewolves. Posted: June 09, 2014 at 11:22 PM (#4722283)
lonnie chisenhall is 5-for-5 with a double, 3 hr, and 9 rbi tonight and hitting .385 on the season
   41. Fred Lynn Nolan Ryan Sweeney Agonistes Posted: June 09, 2014 at 11:26 PM (#4722284)
Oh the baseball gods will pay you back for that... Angels.
   42. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 09, 2014 at 11:40 PM (#4722290)
Mike Trout is good at baseball.

EDIT: Replay is... I dunno. Probably not definitive.

EDIT2: Replay does overturn the homer call. Trout goes back to 2nd base — they're ruling it fan interference — and Mike Scioscia's been tossed for arguing. I'd argue, too, if it was an umpire's call, but you really can't argue the replay call even if it's blargh.
   43. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: June 09, 2014 at 11:44 PM (#4722293)
Strasburg is basically carving up the Giants offense like a roast. OK, maybe not like a roast, more like a Thanksgiving turkey. OK, maybe not carving them up, but more like yanking the drumsticks off and chowing down. But he hasn't choked on a bone. The cranberry sauce is good, too!
   44. PeteF3 Posted: June 09, 2014 at 11:48 PM (#4722295)
MLB Network seems to think that Trout and Scioscia wanted a triple as opposed to a double (which is within the umpire's discretion on fan interference). I don't think Trout gets to 3rd if the ball just bounces off the wall and is played cleanly. The fan deadened the ball.
   45. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 09, 2014 at 11:52 PM (#4722296)
I don't think Trout gets to 3rd if the ball just bounces off the wall and is played cleanly. The fan deadened the ball.
It's Mike Trout running, so I wouldn't rule it out. But fan interference seems to me to default to a double, so I'm fine with it. I think Scioscia was just upset that the homer got taken away, and the Angels ended up not getting that run back, it kinda stings a bit.
   46. PeteF3 Posted: June 09, 2014 at 11:59 PM (#4722299)
Lonnie Chisenhall would have beaten every other team playing baseball tonight all by himself.

The Rangers' 7 runs would also have been enough to beat all but one other team playing baseball tonight. And they lost by 10 runs.
   47. Dale Sams Posted: June 10, 2014 at 12:06 AM (#4722301)
I know he's got two hits tonight, but the Angels really can't find someone else to take DH ABs from the .150 hitting Raul Ibanez?
   48. Joey B.: posting for the kids of northeast Ohio Posted: June 10, 2014 at 12:07 AM (#4722302)
Strasburg fully in command now.

That's why I thought Kendry Morales was the perfect fit for them.
   51. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 10, 2014 at 12:26 AM (#4722306)
C.J. Cron could be in there — and probably should be — but that's pretty much what the Angels are working with. They just set down Grant Green even though Green was hitting .359/.373/.469 in ~20 games with the club. They really want Ibañez to work out for some reason.

Would have been very happy to see Morales back in Anaheim again, and Ibañez cut.
   52. Joey B.: posting for the kids of northeast Ohio Posted: June 10, 2014 at 12:27 AM (#4722308)
Left, left, right hook, right hook, uppercut, uppercut... KNOCKOUT!!
   53. PeteF3 Posted: June 10, 2014 at 12:27 AM (#4722309)
Bo Porter did the put-a-lefty-pitcher-in-the-outfield-and-bring-him-back move with Tony Sipp. Always fun to see. Haven't seen it done since Lou Piniella was managing the Cubs.
   54. Dale Sams Posted: June 10, 2014 at 12:30 AM (#4722310)
It just stuns me when I see an Ibanez or Giambi receiving consistent ABs. Leaves me scrambling for B-Ref and scouring their minor league teams. Then...scratching my head.
   55. TerpNats Posted: June 10, 2014 at 12:34 AM (#4722312)
Desmond's first-ever five-RBI game, 9-1 Nats. Williams pulls Strasburg after six, no doubt saving him for Sunday in St. Louis.
   56. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: June 10, 2014 at 12:36 AM (#4722313)
C.J. Cron could be in there

It's not his time.
   57. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 10, 2014 at 12:46 AM (#4722316)
Josh Donaldson with a 3-error game, his first ever multi-error game. NOT your AL MVP today.
   58. Danny Posted: June 10, 2014 at 12:58 AM (#4722319)
A real 1B would have had two of those.
   59. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 10, 2014 at 01:05 AM (#4722321)
Hey, I'll take it. The Angels have been hammered by Oakland these last three years. Winning one game against them feels like a big damn deal, especially with Tyler Skaggs going on the DL for who knows what or how long.
   60. Fred Lynn Nolan Ryan Sweeney Agonistes Posted: June 10, 2014 at 01:10 AM (#4722322)
Josh Donaldson with a 3-error game, his first ever multi-error game. NOT your AL MVP today.

Eh, it happens.
   61. MNB Posted: June 10, 2014 at 01:20 AM (#4722323)
So is that 53 strike outs against 1 walk for Nats pitchers in the last 7 games now?
   62. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 10, 2014 at 01:23 AM (#4722324)
re: #61 - It's something like that, didn't quite hear it, although I believe the other number is over their last 6 games the Nationals have struck out 47 while walking 0. Pretty rare, I suspect.
   63. MNB Posted: June 10, 2014 at 01:27 AM (#4722325)
I went through box scores and it's 61 strike outs against 2 walks in their last 6 games. (67 against 4 in their last 7.)
   64. TerpNats Posted: June 10, 2014 at 01:35 AM (#4722329)
#62: that 47-0 k-to-bb ratio strictly pertains to the starters. The relievers have issued a few walks.
   65. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: June 10, 2014 at 01:55 AM (#4722332)
I listened to Giants radio for tonight's game (of course, it's Jon Miller!) and in their post-game wrap Mike Krukow was making something of Morse getting hit by that pitch, and now the after game guy is trying to make something out of it. I know Pence got hit yesterday by the Mets, but I'm not seeing any animosity here between players. Morse is said to be happy in S.F. and is 2 teams removed from playing for the Nationals. I guess they're just looking for something to talk about when the team on the field gave them not much. Is there more to it than that?
   66. Joey B.: posting for the kids of northeast Ohio Posted: June 10, 2014 at 06:20 AM (#4722336)
No, most of the current Nats players still love the Beast. Krukow is an idiot.
   67. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: June 10, 2014 at 04:21 PM (#4722760)
Guess we'll have today's chatter in yesterday's omnichatter (or it will get posted late). Anyway, after Van Slyke's two HRs and two BBs moved his line up to .278 /.435 /.625 /1.060 on the year, I looked to see if there were any comparable rate stats for full seasons. I PI searched .260 < BA < .290, OBP > .420, SLG > .600, qualified for batting title. Three seasons came up. Any guesses as to who the three players were?
   68. stanmvp48 Posted: June 10, 2014 at 04:37 PM (#4722778)
Barry, Ted, McGwire?
   69. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: June 10, 2014 at 05:07 PM (#4722807)
McGwire is one of them. Ted never hit below .316 in any season with enough PAs. Bonds was close a couple of times.
   70. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: June 10, 2014 at 05:15 PM (#4722813)
Scott van Slyke in a whopping 92 plate appearances?

I wish Jim would go down to Home Depot and rig up one of those garden timers to shock the chimp's cage each morning into posting the daily OMNICHATTER.

   71. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: June 10, 2014 at 05:24 PM (#4722818)
Lonnie Chisenhall drove in 9 runs yesterday. The Royals have scored nine or more runs just three times this year. He also hit 3 HR, more than the Royals as a team have hit in any one game this year, and as many HR as Eric Hosmer and Billy Butler have combined this year.

Royals-Indians, coming up next on Fox Sports Kansas City!
   72. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: June 10, 2014 at 05:25 PM (#4722821)
I always like to guess Rob Deer in situations like this.
   73. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: June 10, 2014 at 05:25 PM (#4722822)
If Lonnie Chisenhall were doing this on Diamond Mind, I'd be putting all his numbers at .000/.000/.000 because his numbers were too ridiculous and unrelaistic.
   74. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: June 10, 2014 at 05:28 PM (#4722823)
. I PI searched .260 < BA < .290, OBP > .420, SLG > .600, qualified for batting title. Three seasons came up. Any guesses as to who the three players were?


Mark McGwire
Mickey Tettleton
Reggie Jackson
   75. MNB Posted: June 10, 2014 at 05:31 PM (#4722828)
Killebrew in '61 was really close. His OBP was only .405, though.
   76. MNB Posted: June 10, 2014 at 05:32 PM (#4722831)
Jackson was close in '69 but his OBP was only .410.

Carlos Pena in '07 also close but his OBP was only .411.

David Ortiz in '06 only had an OBP of .413.
   77. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: June 10, 2014 at 05:43 PM (#4722838)
Right field of Citizens Bank Park I don't think they're playing today.
   78. MNB Posted: June 10, 2014 at 05:53 PM (#4722847)
McCovey in '70 hit .289/.444/.612.
   79. MNB Posted: June 10, 2014 at 05:58 PM (#4722849)
In '54 Eddie Matthews hit .290/.423/.603, which is .001 too high on BA.
   80. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: June 10, 2014 at 07:00 PM (#4722879)
[79] Actually, Mathews in '54 was the third one. I actually wrote it in my post wrong, as bb-ref does less than or equal to, not less than. Although, technically his BA of .289916 is less than .290. So there you go: McGwire, Mathews and McCovey.
   81. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: June 10, 2014 at 07:07 PM (#4722884)
Also, seeing the close calls you found: Carlos Pena really sticks out!
   82. MNB Posted: June 10, 2014 at 07:24 PM (#4722892)
I finally gave up and sort of guessed it was Matthews. Thome has a couple of close calls, as well.
   83. Ray (RDP) Posted: June 10, 2014 at 07:27 PM (#4722895)
Will Scott Van Slyke ever find his way into the Dodgers' lineup on a more consistent basis? Obviously you wouldn't sit Puig more than once a month, but Kemp needs regular rest and Ethier/Crawford are probably not better players than SVS, who has more upside.
   84. puck Posted: June 10, 2014 at 07:35 PM (#4722902)
So, everyone knew one or both of Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez would get hurt this year in some weird way. Who had tumor in CarGo's finger in the pool?
   85. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: June 10, 2014 at 07:39 PM (#4722907)
Brewers TV just put up a graphic showing Carlos Gomez leading with almost 1.2M All-Star votes while Ryan Braun had just over 1M. I guess they still love him, blemishes, acne, and all?

I think that goes to show how wrong the writers are on how people view PED users. As long as they aren't obnoxious or breaking records, the fans just don't care.
   87. cardsfanboy Posted: June 10, 2014 at 07:48 PM (#4722912)
McCarver just said the Philidelphia Phillies opened the "Homerdome" talking about the Twins previous stadium. Really? McLaughlin was saying the Cardinals opened up Target field--current twins stadium--with an exhibition game...just find it weird that Philly would have been involved in opening the Twins stadium in 1980, but it's possible I guess0
   88. Fred Lynn Nolan Ryan Sweeney Agonistes Posted: June 10, 2014 at 07:57 PM (#4722920)
Maybe something for A's fans to look forward to tonight: Cespedes has eight PAs against Santiago - 2 walks and 4 hits, 2 home runs.
   89. Dale Sams Posted: June 10, 2014 at 08:01 PM (#4722921)
What new excuse have the Cubs and Pirates come up with to honor our malignant, military-industrial com...I mean... our heroes?
   90. cardsfanboy Posted: June 10, 2014 at 08:02 PM (#4722923)
McLaughlin said something that I find useful. Talking about the quality of defense on the Rays, instead of just saying "gold glove winners" like most people say, he pointed out that they had three finalist for the gold gloves last year. I like that way of looking at a teams defensive quality.
   91. cardsfanboy Posted: June 10, 2014 at 08:11 PM (#4722932)
Wainwright not his sharp self today.... Rays have 4 more hits than the Cardinals today in the 4th inning.
   92. cardsfanboy Posted: June 10, 2014 at 08:12 PM (#4722934)
Ugggh...I hate the new look of Gameday(mlb.com) (or at least new for me)
   93. TerpNats Posted: June 10, 2014 at 08:17 PM (#4722937)
The Phillies were a year removed from winning the Series at the start of 1982 (that's the year the Metrodome opened, not 1980), and Twin Cities fans had never seen Schmitty or Rose play in person back in those pre-interleague days. (I take that partially back; Rose played in the 1965 All-Star Game in Bloomington, batting seventh and striking out in both at-bats with a walk.)

Idle question: when teams retire a number, do they do it through the whole organization? Quick sampling looks like yes.

Will Scott Van Slyke ever find his way into the Dodgers' lineup on a more consistent basis?


He has a .682 OPS against right handers this year, .728 for his career. His great play has been a combination of small sample size fluke and heavy use of platooning. I doubt he'd be better than Either against right handed pitching. Then again, Zips projects him for a 122 wRC+ for rest of season compared to 106 for Ethier. I'm not sure if the Zips projection is assuming that he will continue being platooned or whether the projection is for if he were going to face a typical distribution of RHP and LHP. Steamer projects 111 for Van Slyke and 116 for Ethier.

So it was just either I heard the year wrong or McCarver mentioned the wrong year(not a big deal).

Holliday gives the Cardinals a 1-0 lead against what appears to be Cy Young(wearing Odorizzi uniform)

McCarver going on a rant against pitch counts.. Because they are pulling Wainwright at 92 pitches... Wainwright may not have allowed a run today over 7 innings, but he wasn't sharp.

For the record, Wainwright isn't being pulled because of pitch counts, it's 8th inning, he hasn't been sharp all game and the bullpen is fully rested and has a two game series before our next off day. Other than pride, there is no reason for Wainwright to go out there. (of course after I say that, the pen will probably go out an blow another win for Wainwright)
