HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!

I was listening to the Dodgers-Phillies game, thinking, gosh, it was something I forgot to do this morning...

Of course when the Rays have to throw an impromptu bullpen game, the Yankees' bats go into deep freeze. Asking Cessa to throw a shut out is a lot.

Deep freeze?

BATS NEED HATS!

Mets-Padres Camp Day game at Citi Field.
Mets go 6 up, 6 down in 2 innings on 15 total pitches vs the immortal Clayton Richard.

must be a good happy hour somewhere....

This game will be pretty campy, alright.

Hey! Clayton Richard has a no-hitter going!

(yes, I know...Perfect game yadda yadda....)
   9. Howie Menckel Posted: July 25, 2018 at 01:37 PM (#5715701)
4 perfect, 6 pitches for Richard with only 1 K.
1-0 Padres thru 4 innings in a breezy 51 minutes
   10. The usual palaver and twaddle (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: July 25, 2018 at 01:41 PM (#5715705)
OK, what happened, there? Gameday said "Lineout," then after review, "Homer." What gives?
   11. rconn23 Posted: July 25, 2018 at 02:02 PM (#5715719)
Yeah, hard to ask a 6th starter like Cessa to throw a shutout. Awful, awful showing by the offense today. Bad at bats all around.
   12. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: July 25, 2018 at 02:03 PM (#5715720)

Bad at bats since the ASB, the offense is stuck in neutral.

4 perfect, 6 pitches for Richard with only 1 K.


Yeah, THAT wasn't going to last.

(Sorry for the OTP reference, but...) Neither Clayton nor his father have proven to be terribly good at holding leads/positions....
   14. rconn23 Posted: July 25, 2018 at 02:36 PM (#5715747)
At this point, I'd rather the Rays just blow it out than having to watch a potential Neil Walker at bat to possibly decide the game.
   15. phredbird Posted: July 25, 2018 at 02:39 PM (#5715749)
oy, we've outhit the reds today and we're behind by 3 runs ... cripes.
   16. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: July 25, 2018 at 02:44 PM (#5715758)
Got to love the Rays ... Ventors in for 1 batter, Romo to 3rd, but back to the mound for the next ...
   17. cardsfanboy Posted: July 25, 2018 at 02:49 PM (#5715764)
Yadier at least showed up to todays game.
   18. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: July 25, 2018 at 02:51 PM (#5715772)
Uh, yay for the error?

Can't imagine Romine will manage anything here ... well, except an out.

Hopefully only one ...

[edit] better than a double play ...
   19. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: July 25, 2018 at 02:59 PM (#5715781)

What a shitshow series.
   20. rconn23 Posted: July 25, 2018 at 02:59 PM (#5715783)
All you need to know about the state of the Yankees offense. Pinch hitter: Austin Romine. The Yankees only have to play the Rays a billion more times. I'm sure that will go well.
   21. The usual palaver and twaddle (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: July 25, 2018 at 03:06 PM (#5715794)
A series win??? What's that?????
   22. Howie Menckel Posted: July 25, 2018 at 03:15 PM (#5715810)
from mlb.com:

"The Yankees expect to be without catcher Gary Sanchez until late August or early September, general manager Brian Cashman told reporters on a conference call Wednesday afternoon.

Cashman said he is "not optimistic" that the Yankees can supplement their catching depth with a deal before next Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET non-waiver Trade Deadline, adding that he's "comfortable" going forward with Austin Romine and Kyle Higashioka while the club waits for Sanchez's return."

(Romine turned back into, well, career 65 OPS+ Romine the past month - so 'comfortable' seems like a stretch though what else can he say but try to bluff other teams. at least he can handle squatting behind the plate.)

Lol. J.T. Realmuto could be on the Stanton Shuttle to The Bronx within 48 hours as long as Ca$hman was willing to part with a couple of relievers in low-A with ERA's below 6. Yeah Jeets!

Mets end a 17-series streak of not, well, winning a series but grabbing 2 of 3 from the Padres

6-4 final, in 2 hours, 18 minutes
no wonder they call them "getaway games"
   25. DCA Posted: July 25, 2018 at 04:16 PM (#5715861)
The Yankees are unlikely to catch the Red Sox, and even more unlikely to be caught by both the A's and Mariners. Any upgrades they make at this point are - and should be - focused on the playoffs, not the remaining third of the regular season.

I'm fast losing interest in this regular season, as a Yankee fan. If they're going to be in the WC game, I couldn't care less if they win 90 or 100 games. I'll pay attention again if they close the gap on Boston, or win a wild card game. Lack of playoff races really sucks.
   27. BDC Posted: July 25, 2018 at 05:02 PM (#5715886)
I see what you're saying, snapper, but boredom because your club is coasting to a one-game playoff is a little more fun than boredom because your club is 42-60 and giving up 14 runs a game :)
   28. Petunia inquires about ponies Posted: July 25, 2018 at 05:04 PM (#5715887)
Or you could trade places with fans of the A's or Mariners, who in a previous playoff format would already be functionally eliminated from contention. It's the Yankees' own fault, really; if they were better or worse things would be much more exciting for you right now.
   29. BDC Posted: July 25, 2018 at 05:04 PM (#5715888)
But I should say that I am not bored. I'm heading out later this evening to see if Martin Perez of the Rangers, with his 8.05 ERA, can hold the Athletics under their usual 14 runs. I'll Chatter from the Ballpark if my phone doesn't overheat.

I'm fast losing interest in this regular season, as a Yankee fan. I'll pay attention again if they close the gap on Boston, or win a wild card game. Lack of playoff races really sucks.

I'm treating the rest of the season like I did 2017. Pay close attention to the progress of the under-25's, hope that the minors can improve over the Walkers/Drurys/Wades/Higashiokas, and work on stealing a real starting pitcher who has a chance of shutting down the Red Sox, Astros, and/or Indians.

And if all goes well, anything can happen. Six games isn't insurmountable. Even those on and off rookie starters (Cessa, Loaisiga, German) have shown they've got electric stuff, and I'm more concerned about the wild card game than anything fundamental. That WC series should be 2 out of 3, but it is what is and there ain't nothing gonna be done about it. I picked the Red Sox to win the division at the start of the year, and the top of their everyday lineup is way better than the Yanks', so I'm not overly surprised at the current standings.

Absofuckinglutely not, and I'm pro-wild card.
   32. perros Posted: July 25, 2018 at 05:44 PM (#5715910)
The Phillies won their series with the Dodgers, won the season series, and have the second-best record in the National League.

They could still miss the playoffs, but I don't see a collapse happening.

Derek the riverboat gambler
"He wasn’t a Derek Cheater. But he sure was petty.

Speaking about his former teammate’s betting habits on Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” podcast, Padres pitcher Phil Hughes said Derek Jeter would pay off his lost wagers with change.

“He had this thing. He liked to do small little wagers every now and then. But he was such a competitor that if he lost, he would pay you pennies,” Hughes recalled.
   34. BDC Posted: July 25, 2018 at 06:16 PM (#5715921)
101° at the Ballpark, or what we like to call a “summer cold front.”

Fun lineup for the Rangers tonight: Choo Odor Andrus; Beltre Profar Gallo; Chirinos Calhoun Tocci. Calhoun is the rotund guy they got for Yu Darvish, and Tocci is the skinny little fast Rule Five guy who has apparently been given Delino DeShields’ CF job. I like ‘em as individuals; as a team they stink.

The difference between the Yankees and Red Sox is the Sox pulverize the bad teams. Both are great, but the Yankees have no one to blame but themselves for losing this division.

Absolutely.

Or you could trade places with fans of the A's or Mariners, who in a previous playoff format would already be functionally eliminated from contention. It's the Yankees' own fault, really; if they were better or worse things would be much more exciting for you right now.

I'd actually prefer if they were 5 games worse. At least there'd be a reason to watch.

The difference between the Yankees and Red Sox is the Sox pulverize the bad teams. Both are great, but the Yankees have no one to blame but themselves for losing this division.

Yes. Which is another reason I'm sick of them. They beat the good teams, and then loose focus, and play down to the bad teams. That's among the most annoying traits of a sports teams.
   50. BDC Posted: July 25, 2018 at 08:12 PM (#5715977)
Willie Calhoun in LF wears these strange high socks - not all-red like the other Rangers who wear ‘em high do, but half-blue/half-red ... it looks like there’s a Lone Star on the blue half. It looks like he bought them at a souvenir stand.
   51. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: July 25, 2018 at 08:21 PM (#5715982)
the Sox pulverize the bad teams


Not sure how much pulverising the bottom of the Sox order has done, it's pretty shiite. That NY lineup, when firing, bats nicely all the way down to the 9 spot. NY's biggest issue is the lineup is totally sink or swim. They are either mashing homers or striking out. That would drive me nuts. I know the stats bear out that a K isn't much worse then a ground out type of thing, but aesthetically I like to see the ball in play.

You really, really bad Oakland Athletics !
   55. BDC Posted: July 25, 2018 at 09:07 PM (#5716004)
With the pitcher (Edwin Jackson) on the ropes after a 3-R homer, Calhoun hits a gift infield single; then with nobody out, Tocci can’t get a bunt down. A speedy slap hitter has to be able to bunt and steal; those are DeShields’ strengths. But Tocci has poor technique at both. Safe on a FC, he’s leaning back toward first base, spinning his wheels trying to get a jump because he’s off-balance. Choo strikes out into a DP, Tocci caught stealing. The Ranger rally evaporates. Sigh.
   56. Bote Man Posted: July 25, 2018 at 09:08 PM (#5716005)
ESPNFL is hyperventilating over the impending football pre-pre-pre-season starting. I'm surprised they didn't fill this rain delay in Baltimore with a roundtable of talking heads discussing whether players should stand, kneel, sit, or lie prone for the National Anthem.

Such a weird baseball day with the majority of games played in the daytime.

ESPN taking the Texas Rangers' broadcast in lieu of the rain delayed game, and even the local Fox broadcast ignores the game on the field so that the CEO of Texas Live! can tell us about the largest TV screen outside of a sports venue in their whatever bar that they're putting in at the new place to #KeepBDCdrunk.

I don't see them resuming this game in Baltimore tonight. Just a sloppy night with a lot of moisture moving that way. Plus, with 2 A.L. East teams going at it makes it somewhat easier to schedule a make-up game / double-header.

You know, that's actually a pretty good point. I'd be interested to see others' takes on it, but it seems like it's a vestige of the rough-and-tumble era of early MLB, when the cranks might well intentionally and blatantly interfere with play on behalf of their team. And a lot of them were a lot closer to the field, too - hell, sometimes they were standing in foul territory or roped off in the outfield. Also gambling interests, etc.

But today the schlub who accidentally reaches a little too far to try to snag a home run doesn't seem like he deserves to be ejected. Let it be in the umps' discretion if it was intentional.

But today the schlub who accidentally reaches a little too far to try to snag a home run doesn't seem like he deserves to be ejected. Let it be in the umps' discretion if it was intentional.


They should at least make it 2 interferences, you're out. Not this one sad mistake bullcrap.

Albert Pujols hits 631, and moves past Ken Griffey Jr. for 6th on the all-time list.
   87. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: July 25, 2018 at 11:23 PM (#5716102)
Albert Pujols just stole third base on the front end of the double steal. The end times are near.

The end times are near.

Especially when the runner behind him slides halfway up his a$$.

And Charlie Blackmon's ninth-inning homer just made the World Champs walk off the field.

The Rox were the only NL West contender to win today, so the top three teams in the division are now separated by a game and a half.

Ohtani goes deep again.

Hey Hombre, would it be a good idea to post a sticky thread for the days leading up to the trade deadline? Like a trade OMNICHATTER?
   92. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: July 25, 2018 at 11:48 PM (#5716111)
You mean an ... OMNITRADER?!

WHO WILL THE ANGELS TRADE TODAY?!

Good idea.

Khris Davis goes deep again again.
   94. The Yankee Clapper Posted: July 26, 2018 at 12:00 AM (#5716115)
Khris Davis tormented the Rangers tonight - 2 HRs & 5 RBI, including a 9th inning, 2-run go-ahead blast leading to a 6-5 win. Hopefully, the balmy weather alone provided sufficient enjoyment for our BDC.

Ok, maybe the A's ain't as good as they seem to have been being !?


And maybe they are.

But more importantly has now established himself as the far superior partner of the Khris/Chris Davis duo.
He's like the George Michael of Wham. BTW, I'm too lazy to search on it, but whatever happened to "the other guy?"
Does Chris Davis look like having a similar fate? Just being know as "the other Chris Davis?"

When work is slow, these are questions I ponder...

According to his wiki he tried his hand at car racing in Monaco and then released one of the worst albums of 1990 after contractual pressure from his record company. Said company then declined to pick up their option for a 2nd solo album.
