GAME NOTES:

(1)"Cleveland will counter with right-hander Zach McAllister, who has been its steadiest arm of late. On Wednesday he led the charge against the rival Tigers, allowing one run on four hits in six innings. Over his past two trips up the hill, he has yielded only one run over 13 2/3 innings, with 11 strikeouts and two walks."

(2)OMNICHATTER Matchup Of The Day, Normal People Time Zones

(3)"Monday's matchup will feature two promising young pitchers, as Jenrry Mejia pitches for the Mets and the Cards' Tyler Lyons comes up to make his first big league start of the year. Lyons, 26, went 2-4 with a 4.75 ERA in 12 appearances for the Cardinals last season, and he's entering the rotation as a replacement for injured starter Joe Kelly. Lyons, a former ninth-round draftee, went 2-0 with a 3.32 ERA in his first three starts for Triple-A Memphis this season."

best pitching match-up is Cashner vs. Peralta. The latter turned a corner last season in the second half and could be the Brewers true ace. Speaking of aces, Teheran has been pitching like one despite the tepid k numbers. Seems like he's going deeper in games by pitching to soft contact.
   3. CFBF Is A Golden Spider Duck Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:56 AM (#4690137)
I remember seeing "Tom Koehler" in the probable starter column last year and thinking that it was the most generic name possible for a right-handed pitcher. I felt kind of bad about that after seeing his 2014 ERA, but looking at his age and minor league stats...yeah, "generic" seems about right.
   4. Rickey! trades in sheep and threats Posted: April 21, 2014 at 10:48 AM (#4690162)
I'm pretty sure Tom Koehler is the husband of the main character that plays across from Red Reddington on "The Blacklist."
   5. Astroenteritis (tom) Posted: April 21, 2014 at 11:26 AM (#4690196)
The Astros send their 192/265/338 attack against King Felix. I'm going to be optimistic and say they get four hits.
   6. JJ1986 Posted: April 21, 2014 at 11:31 AM (#4690201)
I think Tom Koehler was the pitcher who was upset that no kids wanted to go to Marlins Camp last year.
   7. Crispix reaches boiling point with lackluster play Posted: April 21, 2014 at 11:33 AM (#4690204)
"Tom Koehler" sounds like a generic pitcher from the 80s. Today it would be "Ryan Koehler".
   8. CFBF Is A Golden Spider Duck Posted: April 21, 2014 at 11:34 AM (#4690205)
Probably because "Meet Tom Koehler!" was the big selling point.
   9. Astroenteritis (tom) Posted: April 21, 2014 at 12:07 PM (#4690243)
"Tom Koehler" sounds like a generic pitcher from the 80s.


yes, not as many of us Toms coming into the world these days. Tom Koehler sounds like a guy who would have pitched for the Reds circa 1981.
   10. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: April 21, 2014 at 12:12 PM (#4690248)
Dick Schofield was the last player in MLB to be named "Dick". He retired in 1996. He was of course, named after his father, former big leaguer Dick Schofield, Sr.

Dickie Noles played up til 1993. Noles was not named Richard, as Dick Schofield Jr was. His full name was "Dickie Ray Noles."

Will we ever see another Dick in MLB ever again?
   11. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: April 21, 2014 at 12:14 PM (#4690253)
avoid

Cashner is the guy to watch. He's outstanding

missed from yesterday's pirates/ brewers stuff is they Marco Estrada is pitching lights out
   12. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: April 21, 2014 at 12:17 PM (#4690255)
AG1

I think the millenial version of Dick is Cole

Ha, ha
   13. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: April 21, 2014 at 12:17 PM (#4690256)
I think the millenial version of Dick is Cole


Ah, so that's why those kids were calling me a "Colehead"!

Salvador Perez has caught 97% of the Royals innings this year. I feel this is unsustainable.

   14. Sunday silence Posted: April 21, 2014 at 12:19 PM (#4690258)
How will the Pirates lose today?

I like the new format with notes to the games. I have to ask does the color coding mean anything?
   15. Rickey! trades in sheep and threats Posted: April 21, 2014 at 12:23 PM (#4690262)
To date I've only used color coding to call out "matchups of the day."
   16. Avoid running at all times.-S. Paige Posted: April 21, 2014 at 12:25 PM (#4690264)
Buccholz looks awful so far this season. None of his pitches have any bit, his velocity seems down too.
   17. Der-K and the statistical werewolves. Posted: April 21, 2014 at 01:40 PM (#4690348)
Salvador Perez has caught 97% of the Royals innings this year. I feel this is unsustainable.

The Royals have been a relatively uninteresting team in recent years - you owe this to us.
   18. Edmundo got dem ol' Kozma blues again mama Posted: April 21, 2014 at 01:51 PM (#4690356)
Tom Koehler is the closest to a relative that I will ever have in MLB as his last name is an anagram of my last name.
   19. Crispix reaches boiling point with lackluster play Posted: April 21, 2014 at 01:57 PM (#4690364)
Edmundo Leerhok, a good Basque name
   20. Davo Dozier Posted: April 21, 2014 at 02:11 PM (#4690374)
Re: Salvador Perez.

I feel like last year he caught every inning of the Royals first 15 games (or some ridiculous number--they were the last team to let their backup catcher make an appearance. Don't have access to their game logs at the moment though, unfortunately.
   21. DKDC Posted: April 21, 2014 at 02:22 PM (#4690393)
Orioles about to suffer another crushing defeat...
   22. Publius Publicola Posted: April 21, 2014 at 02:26 PM (#4690400)
Napoli!
   23. Publius Publicola Posted: April 21, 2014 at 02:26 PM (#4690402)
Single wins the game.
   24. DKDC Posted: April 21, 2014 at 02:28 PM (#4690405)
It’s never easy in this division. Just a hair away from disaster.

Whew.
   25. Jolly Old St. Nick Is A Jolly Old St. Crip Posted: April 21, 2014 at 02:28 PM (#4690406)
I've just aged 10 years in the last 10 minutes. Thank God it's over.
   26. Yeaarrgghhhh Posted: April 21, 2014 at 02:30 PM (#4690407)
this f**king team is going to give me a stroke.
   27. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: April 21, 2014 at 02:31 PM (#4690408)
Encouraging loss as losses go. The last two games we've finally started putting some at bats together. One more hit would have been nice though.
   28. DKDC Posted: April 21, 2014 at 02:39 PM (#4690417)
Yes, this is the type of game the Red Sox win 9 times out of ten. The Orioles just managed to get all their hits in a row.

Last night’s game, on the other hand, was a game that the Orioles have no business losing if they want to be taken seriously as contenders.

After 15 divisional games, the only team that stood out to me as a cut below the rest was the Yankees, so of course they have best record in the division. It’s going to be a dogfight.
   29. Yeaarrgghhhh Posted: April 21, 2014 at 02:49 PM (#4690426)
What's really odd is that the Orioles have only hit 10 HRs all year. The lack of power is disturbing, but I have to think that this is a bit of a fluke, and they've still managed to play .500 with a league average offense against some really good teams.
   30. JJ1986 Posted: April 21, 2014 at 03:38 PM (#4690462)
Juan Carlos Oviedo was activated from the disabled list today. I don't think he's appeared in a big league game since he was Leo Nunez.
   31. Rickey! trades in sheep and threats Posted: April 21, 2014 at 05:49 PM (#4690565)
Holy ####. I just realized that today all right thinking, godly men are dependent upon the Angels' bullpen. We are doomed. All of us. Winter is coming.
   32. Edmundo got dem ol' Kozma blues again mama Posted: April 21, 2014 at 06:39 PM (#4690599)
Edmundo Leerhok, a good Basque name

That has a little mystique to it. Maybe I'll use that for my alter ego.
   33. Rickey! trades in sheep and threats Posted: April 21, 2014 at 06:43 PM (#4690601)
That has a little mystique to it.


You're a really hot shape shifter?
   34. Guts Posted: April 21, 2014 at 06:54 PM (#4690605)
The Mets's lineup is....underwhelming.
   35. Joey B. "disrespects the A" Posted: April 21, 2014 at 06:58 PM (#4690606)
Hey gamingboy, how much money do you want to start doing the pitching matchups again?
   36. Joey B. "disrespects the A" Posted: April 21, 2014 at 07:13 PM (#4690622)
Roark looks super sharp with his command tonight.
   37. JJ1986 Posted: April 21, 2014 at 07:13 PM (#4690623)
Holy ####, the Mets look ridiculous.
   38. Joey B. "disrespects the A" Posted: April 21, 2014 at 07:48 PM (#4690645)
He was safe on that play; that will be overturned.
   39. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2014 at 07:58 PM (#4690649)
Cardinal announcers had a Jayson Stark ridiculous trivia comment.

Who is the only pitcher to pitch 7 innings or more, allow less than 4 hits and 1 run and 1 walk or less in their first two starts of their career. (They had to add that walk qualifier or else people would have remembered the great start of their career by Wayne Simpson)

Of course their answer was Tyler Lyons the Cardinals pitcher of today, but they missed Andrew Albers who did it three months later.
   40. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:10 PM (#4690655)
Al is making fun of the New York talk radio guy who had a problem with the Murphy taking paternity leave.
   41. greenback calls it soccer Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:14 PM (#4690661)
I am a late arriver, so I assume Al's Keys to the Game went something like "Keep it close until the Mets bring in Valverde."

Also, I don't trust people who spell Johnny as Jhonny.
   42. Ok, Griffey's Dunn (Nothing Iffey About Griffey) Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:16 PM (#4690662)
Reds first inning today:

Billy Hamilton hit by the first pitch of the game
Billy Hamilton goes first to third on a comeback to the pitcher
Billy Hamilton scores on a ground ball to the 3rd baseman, safe on the play at the plate

Didn't see it, had to pick up dog from daycare....I always miss the first inning of an east coast game...:(

Reds first inning today:

Billy Hamilton hit by the first pitch of the game
Billy Hamilton goes first to third on a comeback to the pitcher
Billy Hamilton scores on a ground ball to the 3rd baseman, safe on the play at the plate


I would love to see a Billy Hamilton highlight reel at the end of the season...
   44. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:20 PM (#4690667)
F--k Ruben Tejada.
   45. greenback calls it soccer Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:22 PM (#4690669)
Tejada makes a great stop, Murphy makes a great turn, and Dan McLaughlin is talking about the Mets error total on the season.
   46. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:27 PM (#4690671)
Nice play by Pujols and Iannetta to get Harper at home. If Richards can get out of this with only one run allowed, that'll be a minor miracle for the Angels.
   47. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:29 PM (#4690673)
It was the second good play by Tejada in this game. And I like that Mclouhglyin says it's as good of a double play as you will see all year.

He only mentioned the errors because he said that the Mess are having defensive problems this year, although they only have 9 errors. Cardinal announcers do a decent job of straddling the line of understanding the flaws with fielding percentage, while still talking about it.

(This is the first season I can remember, where I don't actually hate Mcloughlen, every time he talks....his condenscension has disappeared for the most part....maybe a couple of dui's and him realizing how lucky he is to have this job, has finally turned him into a half way tolerable human being.)
   48. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:34 PM (#4690676)
wtf...first pitch popup to second base Holliday? c'mon, make the guy work a bit.
   49. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:39 PM (#4690680)
What in the name of holy #### are my Mets wearing?
   50. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:41 PM (#4690683)
Young is an idiot.
   51. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:46 PM (#4690688)
Hernandez hated that steal.
   52. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:46 PM (#4690689)
D'arnaud!
   53. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:49 PM (#4690690)
What in the name of holy #### are my Mets wearing?


My gf asked similar question...at first thought that they were just muddy jerseys.
   54. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:50 PM (#4690691)
One run is kind of a failure there.
   55. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:54 PM (#4690692)
With a minor league filler pitcher, the Cardinals should be happy that the other team only scored 2 runs so far. We had to go into the game thinking we needed at least 5 runs to win this game.
   56. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:54 PM (#4690693)
Although not as much of a failure as zero runs, I guess.
   57. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:55 PM (#4690694)
With the way the Cardinals are going up there, I'm shocked that the Mets pitcher has 81 pitches in the 7th inning... if you told me it was 50, I wouldn't have been surprised at all.
   58. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: April 21, 2014 at 08:58 PM (#4690695)
maybe ryan braun IS best suited playing a villain

braun's splits on the road where he is booed constantly: .385/.419/.949
   59. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:00 PM (#4690696)
Mejia needs to get out of this inning quick.
   60. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:02 PM (#4690699)
Ignoble, after a near-perfect 7th - until the third batter.
   61. Joey B. "disrespects the A" Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:03 PM (#4690700)
Wow, that was a strike right there?
   62. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:05 PM (#4690702)
Oy.
   63. Every Inge Counts Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:06 PM (#4690703)
Miguel Cabrera isn't hitting, Tigers can't score with guys in scoring position. Frustration.
   64. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:09 PM (#4690705)
the crew put up a 3 spot on cashner

that impresses me as that young man can pitch
   65. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:09 PM (#4690707)
Neshek still pitching! This will be a hard inning to watch.
   66. greenback calls it soccer Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:14 PM (#4690710)
MLB.tv knows I'm a Cardinals fan, so it shows me highlights of Santana's no-hitter. Thanks, guys.
   67. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:15 PM (#4690711)
looked like interference by a padre but I guess it's not reviewable
   68. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:23 PM (#4690717)
Russell martin with a tremendous pick of a throw to the plate and swipe tag

wow
   69. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:25 PM (#4690719)
play was challenged but confirmed

looked like in real time like the ump got it right

just a great play by martin
   70. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:28 PM (#4690720)
YES

Thank you, Torres.

Some insurance, please.
   71. Joey B. "disrespects the A" Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:32 PM (#4690722)
Desmond looks about as lost right now as I've ever seen him.
   72. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:36 PM (#4690724)
Uninspired, Mets.

Let's hope this Farnsworth thing works at least a few times.
   73. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:36 PM (#4690725)
Pujols steals 2nd on the back end of a strikeout. Moved really well, had the throw beat all the way. More good signs for Albert. Now, if only the Angels could, you know, score a run or something.
   74. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:36 PM (#4690726)
public enemy number 1 is up to bat (gomez)

and Andrew mccutchen just hit one out off manny parra

Last year, Salvador Perez started all 16 of the Royals' first 16 games at catcher.

This year, including tonight, he has started at catcher in all 18 of their games to start the season.
   76. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:39 PM (#4690728)
and perez has seen his average drop through the floor the last 6 odd games

   77. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:41 PM (#4690729)
They are not going to do it, but really, the Cardinals should pinch run for Yadier...of course I don't think they have many choices on the bench.
   78. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:41 PM (#4690730)
WOOT! A run thingy for the Angels!
   79. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:43 PM (#4690733)
Last year, Salvador Perez started all 16 of the Royals' first 16 games at catcher.

YES! Ibañez with what might be the backbreaker! 3-run triple!
   82. Every Inge Counts Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:46 PM (#4690739)
Miggy down to .206 BA, I wonder if that is his lowest ever at this point and time.
   83. Joey B. "disrespects the A" Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:46 PM (#4690740)
Of course Desmond's screwup leads to multiple runs. What else is new.
   84. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2014 at 09:46 PM (#4690741)
2-0 loss versus the Mets.... this road trip is starting to go downhill....

Mejia has a 2.16 era in 50 IP as a starter since last year with a 52/18 k/bb ratio with a 1.24 whip and 4 hrs allowed.

Raul Ibanez just became the oldest player in baseball history to hit a triple.

Minnie Minoso was the previous leader; he hit a triple in 1982 at the age of 56.

Gotta swing at that, Marlin I have no idea who you are.

####.

An Uggla error there would have been awesome.

Yikes. If you're gonna shift the infield to pull, the pitcher better be pounding the inside half of the plate. Smith goes away from LaRoche, easy single the other way.

Maybe Kimbrel will walk in a run.
   94. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: April 21, 2014 at 10:13 PM (#4690768)
Oy. Worst bullpen in baseball gives up another jack. Frieri's already given up 4 homers this season.
   95. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 10:18 PM (#4690770)
That is really really poor run manufacturing by the Marlins there.

0-10 RISP for Detroit today. Lose 3-1. Early in the season I tell myself.
   97. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: April 21, 2014 at 10:20 PM (#4690773)
Frieri brings up the tying run. I've seen this script before.
   98. Lassus Posted: April 21, 2014 at 10:21 PM (#4690774)
Crap.
   99. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: April 21, 2014 at 10:24 PM (#4690775)
Wheeeeeewwwwwweweeewwww. Angels win, the bullpen another balancing act.

Yelich looking overmatched in both halves of the inning.
