Rizzo might have made it in sagmfe but no way to tell on those replays.
   102. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: September 05, 2018 at 09:54 PM (#5739433)
Murphy runs like he's got a stick up his butt, which is ironic considering his off-field remarks a couple years ago.
He also has a "wide stance" at the plate. Adding it all up, I think the conclusion is pretty obvious.

I'm glad we got Shildt to manage this team, so that the fundamentals don't go to waste and we don't get picked off all the time.... oh wait, we got picked off again for like the 30th time this year.

#Angels Shohei Ohtani is the first player in baseball history to hit a home run on the day that his impending Tommy John Surgery was announced.


Care to verify, cfb?

Care to verify, cfb?


not sure how to verify that. Not many position players have had tjs....
   106. cardsfanboy Posted: September 05, 2018 at 09:57 PM (#5739437)
4 pickoffs attempts, zero throws to the batter, combined with a minute and 33 seconds on the review of the pickoff.... Baseball...you are doing it wrong.
   107. Howie Menckel Posted: September 05, 2018 at 09:59 PM (#5739440)
Cubbie Bears,
is Gore going to be a pinch-runner every night, pretty much?

0 for 12 in 5 MLB years, 22 for 26 SB
   108. Meatwad Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:03 PM (#5739443)
He played part of an inning the other night in the outfield.
   109. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:05 PM (#5739446)
Warning track power Bryant.
   110. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:07 PM (#5739448)
Yes. He got an AB yesterday and struck out. Got a SB and played the field another day.

He is really ####### fast.
   111. Meatwad Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:09 PM (#5739450)
Schwarber showing bryant how its done.
   112. BDC Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:12 PM (#5739452)
Adrian Beltre’s 472nd home run ties him for 67th in career Runs Scored with Wade Boggs (1,513).
   113. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:12 PM (#5739453)
How's it going meat? Coming up for a game anytime soon?
   114. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:16 PM (#5739455)
3rd time through for quintana. Like clockwork.
   115. PreservedFish Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:28 PM (#5739459)
Oh, Gore is in the majors? I love it.
   116. cardsfanboy Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:31 PM (#5739460)
how come an active Wong is not in this game now? Did Wong #### on Shildts daughter or something...... A healthy Wong makes that play on Rendon....
   117. cardsfanboy Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:32 PM (#5739461)
Cardinals are about to lose a game that they owned for 7 innings.
   118. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:33 PM (#5739462)
Coley Harvey, ESPN Staff Writer

Clint Frazier saw a neurologist in Pittsburgh this week, Aaron Boone reported. He started having more symptoms associated with the concussion he sustained in spring training just as he was going to be moved to Double-A. He will not be an option the rest of the year for the Yankees.

That sounds a bit career threatening. My recollection is that his contact with the wall wasn't that extreme on the concussion play, and it's looking like normal baseball activity is still causing problems. It'll be a shame if he can't stay healthy enough to demonstrate his actual ability, but that happens and is looking increasingly possible. Hope not.
   119. phredbird Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:34 PM (#5739465)

oh man, martinez gets the call on that first out ... gutsy pitch.
   120. phredbird Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:35 PM (#5739467)

wow, difo swings on a breaking ball that almost hit him.
   121. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:36 PM (#5739468)
And so naturally the Yanks start by leaving the bases loaded.
   122. phredbird Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:38 PM (#5739469)

foul ball grounder down first base line, caroms off the wall and through the legs of the ball girl. exact same thing happened last night.

bader with an easy fly ball catch.

two out

comeon comeon comeon
   123. phredbird Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:40 PM (#5739471)

shildt getting cute, makes a defensive substitution in left for ozuna.

apparently this guy has a good throwing arm, no idea who he is, i missed the name.
   124. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:41 PM (#5739472)
When the hell did Curtis Granderson become a Brewer?
   125. cardsfanboy Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:42 PM (#5739473)
Adolis Garcia.
   126. phredbird Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:43 PM (#5739476)

GOT HIM.

WOW ... CARDS WIN!111!!11!

i tell you what, this team is on the verge of regressing to the mediocre bunch that was underperforming for mike matheny, and the announcers need to S H U T T H E F U C K U P about how great shildt is.
   127. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:43 PM (#5739477)
Holy ####. These clear strikes just missed at the bottom. Over and over and over again.
   128. cardsfanboy Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:45 PM (#5739478)
Shildt has a choice between Carlos Martinez in the bullpen and Dakota Hudson in the bullpen, and goes with Hudson, which I get.... big lead go with the lesser guy....sticks with him clearly one batter too long, and then brings in Martinez.... turns what should have been a laughter into a tight game.

Shildt really needs to work on his bullpen management. I love the quick hooks from time to time... that is something that has been missing from the game for a couple of decades and it's something that shouldn't have disappeared with the large bullpens of today, but he needs to get pass his pets and go with the guys who can do the job. The pen was revamped for him to give him a shot of not looking bad, but he needs to realize that his pets, young guys that nobody in the majors has heard of, are going to get scouting reports out there eventually, and you need quick hooks with them when it appears that the scouting report is spot on.

What a #### show.

[edit] What a Sanchez show (credit to Sevy as well)

Huh. And Gio Gonzalez too, apparently.
   132. Khrushin it bro Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:50 PM (#5739486)
Gary Sanchez is terrible behind the plate. Good lord...
   133. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:51 PM (#5739487)
Shohei Otani is told that he's going to need Tommy John surgery, then goes out and hits two homers on a 4-4 night, and steals a base for good measure.
   134. PreservedFish Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:57 PM (#5739489)
I wonder what team I should root for this October.
   135. Chip Posted: September 05, 2018 at 10:59 PM (#5739493)
YES capturing tension in the dugout between Severino and Sanchez, after they already had a pretty vociferous exchange following the first passed ball, which wasn’t particularly well masked by their respective glove and mask.
   136. Chip Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:01 PM (#5739495)
(I do wonder if Sanchez pointed out that in between his incompetent plays behind the plate Seve gave up 3 ringing doubles, two of which nearly went over the fence, plus a bullet of an RBI single to Lowrie.)
   137. Howie Menckel Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:03 PM (#5739496)
Michael A. Taylor of the Nats.
team down 7-6 in the 9th, 1st and 2nd, 2 outs, sees 6 pitches from Carlos Martinez.
5 of them, even Angel Hernandez wouldn't call them strikes.
is he on first base? no. he is in the showers.
pitiful.
   138. Howie Menckel Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:04 PM (#5739497)
foul ball grounder down first base line, caroms off the wall and through the legs of the ball girl.

5 hole
   139. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:05 PM (#5739498)
Shohei Otani is told that he's going to need Tommy John surgery, then goes out and hits two homers on a 4-4 night, and steals a base for good measure.
Wow. Tomorrow someone should tell him they're going to amputate his leg.
   140. Bote Man the walk-off king Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:13 PM (#5739499)
Michael A. Taylor of the Nats.

When M.A.T. is your last hope, you really should just head to the showers early.
   141. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:17 PM (#5739500)
These no call low strikes are going to kill me. Balls 3&4 were both ####### strikes.
   142. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:20 PM (#5739502)
Trevor Story just hit a home run (his second of the night) that Statcast measured at 505 feet - the longest homer of the Statcast era.
   143. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:26 PM (#5739505)
What the heck, man, it was 6-1 when I stepped away?
   144. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:26 PM (#5739506)
Phew. I don't think this pen is good enough in October though.
   145. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:27 PM (#5739507)
Catching up, it sounds like I'm lucky I missed the beginning of this inning.
   146. Chip Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:27 PM (#5739508)
And Severino out after 2 2/3 IP, 6R/5ER.
   147. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:41 PM (#5739510)
Trevor Story's third homer of the night gives the Rockies the lead in the bottom of the sixth. He should have one more at-bat left.
   148. PreservedFish Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:50 PM (#5739512)
What's the combined distance?
   149. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 05, 2018 at 11:54 PM (#5739513)
1365 feet.
   150. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 06, 2018 at 12:38 AM (#5739518)
Rockies finish off the sweep of the Giants, 5-3. They lead the Dodgers in the NL West by a game and a half.
   151. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: September 06, 2018 at 04:28 AM (#5739530)
From RAB's write up of tonight's debacle:


Disaster Inning: Was the first inning the worst inning of the season? Might’ve been. After stranding the bases loaded in the top half, Luis Severino got knocked around for four runs in the bottom half. Gary Sanchez had a hand in that as well. A piss-poor effort behind the plate led to four pitches to the backstop (they were scored two passed balls and two wild pitches but it could’ve been four passed balls). Severino, meanwhile, allowed four 100+ mph batted balls to the first five batters he faced. Brett Gardner and Andrew McCutchen both had balls hit over their heads. A disaster inning in every possible way.

Severino Struggles: Severino is still broken, folks. Maybe moreso than at any other point this season. His line Wednesday night: 2.2 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 3 K on 59 pitches. Eleven balls in play and six at 95 mph or better. His 96.2 mph average fastball velocity was his lowest in any game since April 2016. In his last eleven starts now, he has a 6.83 ERA (4.96 FIP) and opponents are hitting .323/.360/.574 against him. The Yankees should probably skip Severino’s next start entirely and let him catch his breath. A stunning fall from grace, this has been.


Pretty much ... yeah.
