Torii Hunter's line is pretty wild. Not often you get four hits in a day and still leave 9 guys on base.

When in doubt, hit it at a Tigers pitcher.

19 innings. Wow.

Another Tigers loss. Kansas City enjoy first place. Illitch sorry for wasting your money for another season.

So I see in the news that the Buckhead Rednecks fans became unhinged last night because Bryce Harper stepped on their retarded logo and "disrespected the A".

Let's stomp that f*cking tomahawk right into the dirt on national TV tonight.

Chad Jenkins throws 6 shutout innings in relief for the Jays for his first win of the year. He earned that one.

On behalf of my fellow Nats fans, I say: Joey B., quit being a jerk.

What do you mean, TerpNats? "Ignored Comment" is rather benign, if you ask me. Pleasant even in a bland sort of way.

Jays' bullpen throws 15.2 shutout innings.

Strange line of the day, part two-Melky Cabrera went 3-5 with 5 walks

Not very often one gets walked twice intentionally in favour of Jose Bautista.

43 men LOB for the two teams today. And man, if you haven't seen Aaron Sanchez pitch yet for the Jays, it's like a work of art. The movement he gets on 99mph 2-seamers, combining it with a 84mph hammer? Pure beauty.
   115. fret Posted: August 10, 2014 at 08:39 PM (#4768270)
The Blue Jays and Tigers combined to leave 43 men on base. I looked on baseball-reference, and that is tied for 5th most going back to 1914, when records begin.

June 6, 1991, Rangers 3 (20 LOB) @ Royals 4 (25 LOB), 18 innings.
September 11, 1974, Cardinals 4 (20) @ Mets 3 (25), 25 innings.
July 9, 1969, Twins 11 (23) @ Pilots 7 (21), 18 innings.
August 9, 1942, Cubs 10 (23) @ Reds 8 (21), 18 innings.
June 24, 1962, Yankees 9 (21) @ Tigers 7 (22), 22 innings.

The Cubs-Reds game must have been very exciting. Cubs led 4-0 going into the bottom of the 9th, and the Reds tied it with 4 unearned runs. Both teams scored 2 in the 10th and 2 in the 12th, then scoreless until the Cubs got 2 in the 18th.

Oh, and it was the first game of a doubleheader. Game 2 was shortened to 5 innings, actually 4 1/2. (Called due to darkness, maybe?) The Reds won 2-1 despite leaving 9 more runners on base in their 4 innings of batting. Hiram Bithorn got the win in the first game for the Cubs, pitching the last 6 1/3 innings, and pitched the first 3 1/3 innings of game 2, giving up both runs and taking the loss.

I've checked and that's the first time two 19+ inning games have been played in consecutive days.
List of 19+ inning pitched games.

The previous record was two days apart, May 24, 1973 and May 26, 1973.

Melky Cabrera becomes only the 7th player to reach base safely (without error) at least 8 times in a game.

You're right. It makes things much nicer. I should have done this earlier.

Big Daddy Desmond mashes one the opposite way in the 4th. Nats 1 - 'Necks nil.

On behalf of my fellow Nats fans, I say: Joey B., quit being a jerk.

Unfortunately, there's only one way to get Brown Diaper Joey to shut up during Nats games. You'll notice he's been very quiet since the Braves took the lead.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

June 24, 1962, Yankees 9 (21) @ Tigers 7 (22), 22 innings.

That was an amazing game. The Yanks took a 6-0 lead in the top of the 1st off their longtime nemesis Frank Lary, the Tigers knocked out Bob Turley after he retired only one batter, tied it at 7-7 in the 6th, and then there was nothing for the next 15 innings. Jack Reed finally won it for the Yanks with a homer in the top of the 22nd, the only home run of his entire career. Rocky Colavito went 7 for 10, and was stranded on base at the end of the game. Jim Bouton pitched 3 hit shutout ball for the last 7 innings to pick up the win.

Rickey! was similarly obnoxious for a while, then learned the error of his ways and is nowhere as annoying as he used to be. Joey B. should do likewise; I'm embarrassed by him. (And Joey, I want a response from you on this topic before you go into one of your "redneck" harangues.)

This Braves team is deeply flawed, hamstrung by bad contracts and massive injury depletion, and hardly worth considering a "playoff contender." But they can beat the Nats head to head. So that's fun.

#123: Agree to some extent, but thanks to Saturday night's (or should that be Sunday morning's?) win, the Nationals got the minimum of what they wanted this weekend, and could -- I repeat, could -- get back a game or two in the standings the next few days as they visit the Mets and the Braves host the Dodgers.

There's an enormous difference between a person who's sometimes obnoxious but nearly always funny, and someone whose entire schtick is incoherent babbling accompanied by a repertory of about 4 or 5 childlike insults. Sam may be a neck stabber, but he's a neck stabber with pizazz. Who they root for has nothing to do with it.

Joey B has basically ruined these omnichatter threads for me.

The Chatters were fun before he started shitting all over them, yes.

Honestly, the IGNORE function exists for a reason.

I use it very sparingly, but I still wish far more sites had one ...

What is everyone saying? Are you trying to insinuate that when it comes to smart, enjoyable wit, "Bang! Zoom! Curly W, fuckers!" ISN'T the new "Kiss mah grits"?
   130. Chris Fluit Posted: August 11, 2014 at 08:07 AM (#4768357)
That's a great list in #116. Three Hall of Famers, another guy in the Hall of Merit (Hack), and a well-known slugger (Colavito). Burnett is the only unknown mediocrity.
