Looking at the records for all the teams in baseball, and it seems weird that the top three records are all in the NL Central. I'm not surprised by the Reds, but the Pirates still doing what they are doing is impressive.

Wow, that's impressive. Imagine what their records would be if Houston was still in the division.

Travis Wood just hit a grand slam.

Travis Wood just helped his own cause with a grand slam off of Jake Peavy in the bottom of the 4th. Cubs lead, 6-1.

EDIT: Coke to SouthSideRyan.

Pirates (already complete), Cardinals, and Reds all play Astros interleague this year.

With the exception of a three-game series in Wrigley, the Pirates have a long stretch of games against good teams coming up. So far so good (2 of 3 from the Tigers), but they have seven with the Reds and series with the Braves and Giants. They also play the Dodgers, who have given them fits the last couple years, and the Angels in Anaheim. If they're still hanging around the top of the leaderboard come the end of June, then it might be time to reassess - although I for one won't be happy until/unless win #82 makes the books.

Is that 3 or 4 homeruns for wood this year? Also great example of why we dont need the dh in the nl
   8. SouthSideRyan Posted: May 30, 2013 at 04:06 PM (#4456091)
Just Wood's 2nd, 4th for Cubs pitchers. Feldman, Samardzija and Wood are all outslugging Darwin Barney.
   9. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: May 30, 2013 at 04:14 PM (#4456101)
Apparently the NL needs a DH for Darwin Barney.
   10. SouthSideRyan Posted: May 30, 2013 at 05:03 PM (#4456132)
Well Wood is also outslugging AL DHs.
   11. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: May 30, 2013 at 05:08 PM (#4456136)
That just means DHs need DHs!
   12. Repoz Posted: May 30, 2013 at 05:14 PM (#4456139)
Brian Kenny just asked Jim Kaat if wins matter for starting pitchers. Took Kaat less than a minute to bring up Jack Morris & HOF. #headsplodes

Apparently the NL needs a DH for Darwin Barney.

Semi-serious question: How bad at hitting would your middle infielder (presumably) have to be and/or how good at hitting would your pitchers have to be to justify considering DHing your glove-man and letting your pitcher(s) hit? I assume this would not be supported by the rules or we'd have seen it already (and possibly in Chicago*).

Just a couple OTTOMH:
2004: Carlos Zambrano 229/257/286 in 82 PA vs. Ramon Martinez 246/313/346 in 298 PA (then Nomar)
2005: Zambrano 300/300/463 in 84 PA (9 XBH of 24! 25/0 K/BB tho) vs Neifi 274/298/383
2006: Zambrano 151/160/397 80 PA (SIX homers) vs Ronny Cedeno 245/271/339

What if you had a guy even better than Perez/Cedeno defensively who just couldn't hack it at the plate?

Thank goodness this is the last day this season of these execrable mixed MASN broadcasts, aka the most unlistenable broadcasts in all of baseball. Tomorrow I can finally turn up the TV volume again.

If only they were the last ones ever, but we can't possibly be that lucky.
   15. bigboy1234 Posted: May 30, 2013 at 07:02 PM (#4456214)
Ackley's resplacement, Nick Franklin, hitting 2 HR in Petco, not bad.
   16. bigboy1234 Posted: May 30, 2013 at 07:06 PM (#4456215)
^Typos are sad. But an hour away from the beginning of the Wacha-Wacha-era, although he may only be like the 5th most exciting arm the Cardinals have.
   17. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 30, 2013 at 07:13 PM (#4456218)
John Buck DHing and batting 4th. Three hot weeks to start the year and Collins thinks he doesn't suck.
   18. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: May 30, 2013 at 07:26 PM (#4456230)
According to Ray Knight, the mode <something-or-other> for Dan Haren tonight is:

throw strikes
keep your off-speed stuff in the strike zone
and probably grit and determination and the Will to Win


I'll be watching intently for all these signs and portents.
   19. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 30, 2013 at 07:29 PM (#4456231)
I liked the scouting report YES put up for David Wright last night:

Oh great, Jon Niese is going to miss his next start because of shoulder tendonitis.

Hey, Marlon Byrd!

#19 - Such reports require 3 items in the list, which is why I was forced to fabricate a third in mine, as well.

s/tendonitis/tendinitis

Rocket1124 says it's something like the 3rd declension, twice removed or something. Makes no sense to me, though.

Nice unnecessary dive there Markakis. Trying to cheese your way into a bogus Web Gem?

Oh, come on, it was a nice catch. Don't have a bad Natitude.

Seven Ks for Fister through 3. When did he become a strikeout pitcher?

Oh yeah, it's the Pirates.

   30. Mike Emeigh Posted: May 30, 2013 at 08:09 PM (#4456270)
And apparently it's also Manny Gonzalez, who just pulled the trigger on Jhonny Peralta.

Looking at the pitch, it probably was a strike, but it was in a position that normally isn't called a strike; up and in on the hands.

-- MWE
   31. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: May 30, 2013 at 08:24 PM (#4456286)
@chasehughesCSN: Since the #Nats led off the second with two singles, Freddy Garcia has retired 12 batters in a row

I didn't even know Freddy Garcia was still alive! So much for the offensive outburst continuing tonight.

I have the Comcast bundle that contains only about 40 channels, no ESPN, no Versus, but I could get Phillies and Orioles games on the regional sports networks. Suddenly I can't, all this week. Is there some sort of hardball negotiation going on? This sucks. I may have to bite the bullet and subscribe through the computer, though I've never gotten used to watching things on the computer.
   33. DKDC Posted: May 30, 2013 at 08:26 PM (#4456289)
I can’t tell which is my favorite facts of the day:

1)Manny Machado and Chris Davis are #1 and 2 in the AL in fWAR

OR

2) Chris Davis won the AL player of the month in April with a monster .348/.442/.728 line with 9 HRs. In May he’s hitting .370/.453/.804 with 10 HRs.
   34. DKDC Posted: May 30, 2013 at 08:28 PM (#4456293)
And I’m not watching the game now, but I agree with the earlier comment that it’s mind-bottling that the MASN booth of the Orioles B team plus Carpenter and Santangelo lasted more than one game let alone multiple seasons.
   35. Mike Emeigh Posted: May 30, 2013 at 08:30 PM (#4456296)
Doug Fister is now hitting .308 for his major league career. Dump the DH!

-- MWE
   36. Pirate Joe Posted: May 30, 2013 at 08:31 PM (#4456298)
Tigers with four consecutive hits against the Pirates, but they still can't score off Jeff Locke. I believe he's at 19 straight scoreless innings now.


   37. Mike Emeigh Posted: May 30, 2013 at 08:32 PM (#4456300)
Four singles, no runs for the Tigers in the fifth. Tuiasosopo managed to get thrown out at the plate, which probably killed the potential for a big inning.

-- MWE
   38. Mike Emeigh Posted: May 30, 2013 at 08:34 PM (#4456302)

The pitch tracker on the Pirates' broadcast had the pitch just off the plate inside.

#32 - Crispix, you don't have to watch it on a computer. I got the Roku XS which is an itty-bitty little box that "tunes in" Internet video stations via many apps that you can load, in addition to those that ship with it. My primary reason for getting it was to watch MLB.tv and it works well. Plug an HDMI cable between the Roku and your TV and enjoy.

I must point out that MLB Advanced Media must have been having some serious technical difficulties recently, based on my experience and those b|+ching on their support forum. I posted the technical details of what I observed the other day and (crossing my fingers) it has been much better the past couple days. So it's not perfect, but the radio stream never seems to quit so that fills in the blanks when the picture pauses for a bit.

OK, that was dumb, but in my defense, ticket purchases for Bob Dylan at SPAC are blowing up on my Facebook feed.

Words I did not expect to hear often this year, if ever again:

"Going into the seventh inning, Freddy Garcia continues to dominate."
   48. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:02 PM (#4456325)
Yep, and this after last night's offensive outburst by the Nats. Like I said yesterday, I sure hope the Nats don't spend all their runs on one game. Looks like they did.
   49. Lassus Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:03 PM (#4456326)
I would like us to boring our way into a 2-1 victory. This game can continue to be a real snoozer as long as we win.
   50. Gamingboy Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:04 PM (#4456327)

10 Ks for Gee, a career high. He hasn't had more than 6 in a game this year.

a lot of brewer fans think ron should be ok because he 'hasn't lost the clubhouse'

well, I am not all for firing people

but when the team is going out there night after night and getting drilled there is a problem

because this isn't just losing. this is being embarrassed

something needs to change

gaming

right now I would wager 1000 dollars to a box of donuts that the brewers pitching coach is fired as soon as tomorrow

the twins have maybe 3 major league quality hitters in the lineup and the brewer staff has gotten smacked around for four straight games.

there are a lot of things wrong with the crew but you just cannot sit there and watch the team drive into the ditch and not try and grab the wheel.

doug Melvin is not being given any choice. the guys are being humiliated on a regular basis

   63. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:17 PM (#4456350)
Which do you prefer: Manny Machado or Manny Chevitz?

Nate McClouth doubles (his 3rd hit of the game) and Manny Machado doubles down the 3B line to bring him home. So Haren makes it to the 8th and now the Nationals chickenpen must turn this one into a laugher.

Over: World Series
Under: BUST!
   64. Guts Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:18 PM (#4456351)
If nothing else goes well for Wacha, at least he had a good first IP.

   81. Lassus Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:41 PM (#4456383)
I do feel bad for Gee, but the team's win here is more important than Gee's feelings. I have to say - er, now that the inning is over - that I'm with Collins here.
   82. spike Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:42 PM (#4456385)
Huh. Alex Wood debuts. That didn't take long.
   83. cardsfanboy Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:43 PM (#4456386)
Carpenter has been the Cards' best or second best position player so far, depending on how you feel about catcher defense.


Second best. A catcher who has played 51 out of 53 games, posting gold glove quality defense and putting up a 142 ops+ clearly wins out over pretty much everyone. I don't care what War says.
   84. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:44 PM (#4456390)
Eh, it was Ichiro and Gardner, they aren't scary hitters.
   85. cardsfanboy Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:45 PM (#4456392)
Wacha is showing the Royals what qualifies as offense.

So.....you like catcher defense. Then Yadi is it, I agree. I am pretty neutral, the exact ordinal ranking of players is not a huge concern of mine.

Wacha is on pace to throw a perfect game every game, and never make an out at the plate.
   87. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:46 PM (#4456395)
For those who have video that doesn't pause every few seconds, Los Tigres contra Los Piratas has no score in the bottom 8th. That is, if you're into that kinda thing.
   88. Guts Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:47 PM (#4456398)
So in the last two weeks, Cards have had a rookie starting pitcher have an AB before he throws a pitch in his debut, and another pitcher get a hit before he allows a hit in his debut.

And Wacha could now score a run before he allows a run. Unusual.

EDIT: Nope.
   89. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:47 PM (#4456399)
Awarding a Gold Glove to a catcher seems about as pointless as awarding a Silver Slugger to a pitcher, for opposite reasons.
   90. Lassus Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:48 PM (#4456400)
OK, Bobby. Let's get this done.
   91. Fancy Pants Handles lap changes with class Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:50 PM (#4456402)
Ellsbury with another single and a steal. Took third when the catcher threw it away.

5 SB game seems to be tied for 8th all-time, if my PI skills aren't failing me.

Edit: Bonus trivia question: Name the only player with more than one game with 6 or more SB.

Awarding a Gold Glove to a catcher seems about as pointless as awarding a Silver Slugger to a pitcher, for opposite reasons.


Not just a gold glove...the only recipient ever of the Platinum glove.

So.....you like catcher defense


I think that catcher is undervalued by War. I think that is by far the biggest flaw with war is the assumption that every position is equally valuable. I think that in a game if you assigned a "wins value" to each player that catcher would rate a higher value than all the other defensive positions.
   93. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:54 PM (#4456405)
So the Marlins have a minor league pitcher named Brad Hand who got a couple cups of coffee (a venti???) while the Brewers have Donovan Hand who made his MLB debut Sunday and is pitching again tonight at Target Field.

File under "names I did not expect to hear more than once a season".
   94. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 30, 2013 at 09:56 PM (#4456406)

I gotta admit, that is pretty satisfying.

Name the only player with more than one game with 6 or more SB.


I'm gonna take a stab at Carl Crawford?

FSMW is running a poll of which Cardinal rookie will have the most impact in the future, the options: Lyons, Kozma, Miller, Maness, Wacha. Obvious answer is Kozma, silly poll.

You could have talked me into believing he had 3 of those just against the Red Sox, but no, it was just the one.

I just went to the website to see who was on that poll.

They did specify that it was impact for the remainder of the season and Kozma is probably a safe bet. Barring a collapse, he's likely to play pretty much every game this season. May not be good or great, but he's going to be racking up the playing time.
