Neshek not so sharp this game either. Double and hbp to start his appearance, in comes in Sam Freeman. Looking like the bullpen is going to fail Wainwright again.

So down 7-3 in the 1st, with bases loaded, 2 outs and the starting pitcher up, the Rockies let the pitcher bat. I mean, I get it--they're down a bunch of starting pitchers, will start a wild rookie tomorrow, are hoping this guy will save the pen, but still. That had to be a downer for Rockies fans at the park.

McCarver is talking about catching and the myth of a pitcher not shaking off a catcher....Shutup McCarver, what do you know about catching... :)

He's forgotten more about catching than we know...unfortunately he's forgotten more about catching than we know?

Sam Freeman does his job, and Rosenthal comes in and immediately hits the batter to load the bases. (they are reviewing the hbp.... I'm certain the call will stand)

For Repoz sycophants who bemoan how tough it is to drag Neanderthals into modern scientific analysis, you are not alone. Even fire captains feel your pain:

The challenge for our firefighters is to really study the new tactical options and not be so proud and bound by the “way we have always done it.”


It's a fairly short blog post with only a few conclusions (that are apparently still being evaluated), but it might be worth a read. But that paragraph near the end smacked of getting baseball old timers on board with modern statistical analysis.

Perfect game alert in Baltimore. Workman hasn't allowed any baserunners through 4, although may be tough for him to finish game given some long rain delays.

Tillman, on the other hand, has allowed 10 baserunners through 4 but only one run somehow.

Phils get a decent win over San Diego 5-2 to open the homestand. Burnett was sharp, Diekman was en fuego and Papelbon gets career save #300.

Cardinals win 1-0, third consecutive shutout..

Only 352 away from Rivera...

Seattle Mariners Farewell Gifts To Derek Jeter: (1) a base from the old Kingdome, where Jeter collected his first hit in 1995; (2) a Safeco Park base; (3) a $5,000 check to his Turn 2 foundation; and (4) from Robinson Cano, who helped present Jeter the gifts with Felix Hernandez, a watch with an engraved message - "To Derek: Thank you for showing me how to be a leader. With love and respect, RC." Probably deserves its own thread.
   112. DKDC Posted: June 10, 2014 at 10:47 PM (#4723013)
If the gifts keep Jeter in the lineup, keep em coming.

The more games that I see in AT&T Park, the more I think I understand why so many Giants players take steroids. It's next to impossible to hit a home run there without them!
   114. boteman Posted: June 10, 2014 at 11:12 PM (#4723021)
Slugfest in Denver, pitchers' duel in San Francisco. Baseball has it all.
   115. Joey B. Posted: June 10, 2014 at 11:23 PM (#4723025)
Very nice Fister!
   116. boteman Posted: June 10, 2014 at 11:40 PM (#4723029)
Giants TV spends too much time between pitches panning around the stands, zooming in on fans in the seats eating nachos or the elder statesman/lawyer posing as a bat boy. They should be showing defensive alignments and what is happening on the field, but that would be too much like customer service I guess.
   117. Joey B. Posted: June 10, 2014 at 11:57 PM (#4723038)
I still can't believe that Mike Krukow seriously tried to make a big deal about Morse getting plunked last night, as though anyone with half a brain would buy that the Nats were trying to get him. What a stupid horse's ass.

Seriously. I'm willing to bet that there are members of the team who are far less loved by the Nationals players than Mike Morse, as an ex-teammate. The last person in the world any Nationals pitcher would intentionally plunk.
   119. Esoteric Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:05 AM (#4723043)
Hell of a game going on in Colorado right now, for those who have tuned it out. Braves lead 13-9 (!) in the 8th, but the Rockies have just loaded the bases with nobody out.
   120. Fred Lynn Nolan Ryan Sweeney Agonistes Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:10 AM (#4723048)
Third base coach Gary DiSarcina honors the late Don Zimmer by yelling "No, no, no!" as Pujols runs through the stop sign.
   121. Esoteric Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:13 AM (#4723049)
Nationals pitchers have struck out FIFTY BATTERS over the last seven games and 49 innings. They have walked ONE. Hasn't been done in a hundred years, apparently.
   122. MNB Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:26 AM (#4723056)
I went through box scores last night, and it's now 70 strike outs against 5 walks in the last 8 games (including this one).
   123. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:26 AM (#4723057)
Single, double & walk with 2 runs scored for Jeter tonight (through 8th). Someone needs to compare his performance on gift & non-gift days. Maybe BB-Ref already has it?
   124. Fred Lynn Nolan Ryan Sweeney Agonistes Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:35 AM (#4723061)
Lowrie hits a rocket right at Cowgill in RF, deep enough to work as a sac fly. A's-Angels is a dandy little pitcher's duel so far.
   125. CFBF Is A Golden Spider Duck Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:46 AM (#4723066)
Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth on 11 pitches, all strikes. There have been a couple "immaculate innings" recently (three Ks, nine pitches), but command has occasionally been an issue for Craig this year, so it's good for him to be just about perfect.
   126. Joey B. Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:47 AM (#4723067)
Alright Clip!
   127. sardonic Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:48 AM (#4723069)
CESPEDES!
   128. sardonic Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:50 AM (#4723070)
Throw of the season so far: Howie Kendrick on first, with Trout at the plate, 1-1 game with 1 out in the 8th. Trout rips one toward the left field corner, Cespedes cuts it off but boots the ball off his glove. Kendrick is sent around 3rd, Cespedes chases the ball into the corner, picks it up and unleashes a cannon that gets home on the fly to nail Kendrick at home.
   129. Roger McDowell spit on me! Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:52 AM (#4723071)
That throw by Cespedes was fantastic. I didn't think he had a chance after muffing the ball into the corner in LF.
   130. Fred Lynn Nolan Ryan Sweeney Agonistes Posted: June 11, 2014 at 12:57 AM (#4723074)
A's announcers comparing the throw to Bo Jackson.
   131. The importance of being Ernest Riles Posted: June 11, 2014 at 01:00 AM (#4723076)
I think the announcers said that is 12 home plate kills for the A's in the last 18 games? Something ridiculous like that.

That Cespedes throw is one of the best I've ever seen. On-the-strike fly to Norris to nail the go-ahead run. And now Cespedes is stealing third base. Such an exciting player.
   132. The importance of being Ernest Riles Posted: June 11, 2014 at 01:02 AM (#4723077)
Moss should be embarrassed striking out against a sidearmer while holding the platoon advantage.

Really great game tonight.
   133. Fred Lynn Nolan Ryan Sweeney Agonistes Posted: June 11, 2014 at 01:02 AM (#4723078)
I'm kind of hoping he steals home.

EDIT: feh.
   134. The importance of being Ernest Riles Posted: June 11, 2014 at 01:07 AM (#4723080)
I predict that if the Angels score here, the A's will lose the game.
   135. Joey B. Posted: June 11, 2014 at 01:12 AM (#4723081)
Baaaang! Zooooooooom! It's another Curly W in the books!!

   137. The importance of being Ernest Riles Posted: June 11, 2014 at 01:50 AM (#4723090)
Angels TOOTBLANning like crazy tonight.
   138. jobu Posted: June 11, 2014 at 01:52 AM (#4723091)
This Oakland A's team is good at baseball.
   139. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: June 11, 2014 at 02:28 AM (#4723094)
Another baserunner for the Angels. Been leaving a lot on the table tonight...
   140. The importance of being Ernest Riles Posted: June 11, 2014 at 02:32 AM (#4723095)
Angels have played better than the A's tonight. A's lucky to have pushed it to the 14th.
   141. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: June 11, 2014 at 02:36 AM (#4723096)
It's not just luck. The Angels have run themselves out of several opportunities all by themselves.
   142. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: June 11, 2014 at 02:47 AM (#4723097)
Collin Cowgill WALKS IT OFF?! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Taking at least two of three against Oakland is huge.
   143. PASTE Thinks This Trout Kid Might Be OK (Zeth) Posted: June 11, 2014 at 06:31 AM (#4723102)
There went the inevitable Liriano injury, and that's about all she wrote for the 2014 Pirates.
