Friggin Halos are winning all the time. It sucks !

Daniel Murphy activated by the Nationals and will DH tonight.
   4. Bote Man Posted: June 12, 2018 at 06:39 PM (#5690761)
The Yankees get a close-up look-see at Bryce Harper. Let's see if the sizzle matches the steak.
   5. Tom Nawrocki Posted: June 12, 2018 at 06:40 PM (#5690763)
Tom Murphy promoted by the Rockies and will catch tonight.

Murphy was slugging .642 with 16 homers at Albuquerque. Rockies catchers have hit .202/.306/.338 this season.
   6. Bote Man Posted: June 12, 2018 at 06:50 PM (#5690768)
Sandy Alderson updates on the state of the Mets: "I take total responsibility for where we are."

WHEW! I was almost about to blame José Reyes.
   7. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 12, 2018 at 06:59 PM (#5690773)
The Yankees will call-up Jonathan Loaisiga from AA Trenton to start Thursday in placed of Masahiro Tanaka, who's on the DL. Loaisiga is on the 40-man roster and pitching better than the 40-man guys at AAA Scranton.

I believe Gray and Nola faced each other in a college super regional at Oklahoma and LSU respectively

CC Sabathia has been around so long he faced the Montreal Expos in 2002. He is 2-1 2.25 in 3 career starts vs Nats/Expos. He last faced the Nats on 6/16/09 pitching NY to a 5-3 win despite giving up a 3-run HR to Anderson Hernandez.

Who the h3ll was Anderson Hernandez??
   10. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 12, 2018 at 07:17 PM (#5690786)
Sabathia vs. the Nats, Jesus, that makes me think of only one thing :

Vonnegut (or the narrator) makes references a couple of times to the birds having said "Poo-tee-weet" and I'm still not certain of the significance now that I've finished the book.


Probably not something positive.
   11. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 12, 2018 at 07:19 PM (#5690787)
Who the h3ll was Anderson Hernandez??


And what was his nickname in High School ?
   12. Perry Posted: June 12, 2018 at 07:34 PM (#5690794)
Jon Gray's 1st inning in Philly: Two walks, a mound visit, a 3-run jack, 29 pitches. And the beat goes on...
   13. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 12, 2018 at 07:40 PM (#5690799)
Didi !!! yes YES yes inDIDI !

Gray getting an angry earful from the pitching coach in the dugout after the inning.

DIDI MAY BE BACK
   16. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 12, 2018 at 07:44 PM (#5690803)
That Harper throw was really really stupid, is he dumb or something ?
   17. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 12, 2018 at 07:46 PM (#5690805)
Had to step away, so slight delay on DIDI DINGER DOES DAMAGE!
   18. Perry Posted: June 12, 2018 at 07:49 PM (#5690807)
Looks like the ass-chewing worked, Gray's 2nd inning: 12 pitches, 3 Ks. Of course, it was 7-8-9, let's see what he does with the top of the order.
   19. Benji Gil Gamesh VII - The Opt-Out Awakens Posted: June 12, 2018 at 07:53 PM (#5690808)
Wow, I knew that Didi started white hot and had tailed off...but I didn't realize just how badly he'd tailed off. Peak Barry Bonds for just shy of a month, and then 2018 Chris Davis for a month.
   20. Perry Posted: June 12, 2018 at 07:55 PM (#5690809)
Tom Murphy back up with the Rox, they're carrying 3 catchers (with 3 DH games at Texas coming up). And he doubles on the first major league pitch he sees in 2018.
   21. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 12, 2018 at 07:56 PM (#5690810)
And Gary Sanchez is number one Catcher of AL with friggin.197. But, what a smile ! (Him, not his translator)

The Mets batted .147 on their nine-game homestand that ended Sunday. Since 1900, that was the lowest batting average by any major-league team on a homestand of seven or more games (of which there were more than 13,000).

Damn, that sounds like the 15% approval rating of Donald Trumpenstein right now. Not good, not good at all.

Sabs showing some slick foot and handwork. Deliciously done !
   27. Jay Seaver Posted: June 12, 2018 at 08:20 PM (#5690822)
As a Red Sox fan, I suppose I should just accept that Eduardo Rodriguez is going to look amazing when he gets someone out, but no matter what happens, he's going to throw about 20 pitches/inning, no matter what the results.
   28. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 12, 2018 at 08:22 PM (#5690824)
And who the #### is Eduardo Rodriguez again ?
And what was his nickname in High School ?
   29. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 08:27 PM (#5690826)
omg, Edmonds and Mclaughlin are fully going old man on baseball. "100 pitches... when I played it was 120" and "When Bob Gibson played, it was expected to go 9 innings with no ill effects.".... you both realize that the reason pitch counts became vogue is because of the sheer number of pitchers who had careers ended and trying to rationalize why it was happening so often. And of course Bob Gibson had to pitch to .220 7, 8 and 9th hitters, not really something you see that often any more.
   30. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: June 12, 2018 at 08:29 PM (#5690828)
Chatwood gonna Chatwood.
   31. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: June 12, 2018 at 08:46 PM (#5690851)
Well, that inning SUCKED.
   32. rconn23 Posted: June 12, 2018 at 08:49 PM (#5690854)
I'm not sure what Greg Bird has done to deserve to hit so high up in the lineup.
   33. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 12, 2018 at 08:49 PM (#5690855)
I think that anyone who can't throw at least 300 90mph+ pitches every second day should quit baseball and join the military.
Baseball is for hard guys only, not for little girlie men who can't throw the hard ball !
   34. Howie Menckel Posted: June 12, 2018 at 08:52 PM (#5690856)
Mets now on a 1-for-33 streak with runners in scoring position. that seems... poor

Nothing more exasperating than someone bringing up an example of an all time great from the past and complaining "How come modern day players can't be more like him?"

Yeah, Gibson was awesome. So were Dick Ellsworth, Dean Chance, Wally Bunker, Gary Nolan, Mark Fidrych, Sam McDowell, Jim Maloney, Larry Dierker, John Matlack, ken Holtzman, Bill Singer, Denny McClain, Ernie Broglio, Joe Horlen, Gary Peters... None of whom were worth a tinker's dam after their mid 20's

DIDI DINGER DOES DOUBLE DAMAGE!
   41. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:08 PM (#5690863)
damnit..... 3-0 Padres......
   42. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:08 PM (#5690864)
Very close replay, but he's safe.
   43. Loren F. Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:09 PM (#5690865)
[36] Some of those guys — like Matlack and Holtzman — were good into their late 20s. But your overall point stands.
   44. Misirlou doesn't live in the restaurant Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:11 PM (#5690866)
I haven't been paying attention, but man has Didi been slumping. Since his OPS peaked at over 1.3 in late April, he's hit .174/.218/.243.
   45. Howie Menckel Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:13 PM (#5690867)
Koufax and Drysdale were workhorse teammates - whose careers ended at age 30 and 32.

Singer in effect replaced Koufax in the Dodgers rotation. 204, 256, 316 IP at ages 23-25.
Hepatitis and a broken finger led to 106 IP in 1970. he wins 20 games in 1973 in 315 IP - then is limited by back problems in 1974 and stunk in 1975.

after being decent in 1976, he pitched the Blue Jays' first-ever game in 1977. 2-8 with a 6.79 ERA. career over at age 33.

granted we have someone who is tossing out troll bait, but current pitchers throw as many innings - just spread out over more years.

Embarrassing LL rundown executed by the Cubs.

Is there a stat for Failure to TOOTBLAN?
   48. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:19 PM (#5690872)
I'm a Cardinal fan, and we have a host of great pitchers destroyed by overuse as kids, but because it happened in my formative years, I always point to John Fulgham. At 23 years old he makes it to the majors, he has 19 starts, 10 complete games, an era+ of 151(2.53 era) and is out of baseball after 85 innings in his age 24 season, he was one of the first guys to have Tommy John Surgery after Tommy John and never really recovered.... And if you look at teams throughout the 70's, I'm not really sure he's an exception as much as somewhat the norm.
   49. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:20 PM (#5690873)
Didi can field a bit, too.
   50. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:21 PM (#5690874)
Cardinals are being outhit 6-0 tonight. (it's a bullpen start for the Padres, they have already replaced the starter--3 ip--, so I don't feel guilty for jinxing them--if that was a real thing)
   51. K-BAR, J-BAR (trhn) Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:22 PM (#5690875)
I am usually a very calm baseball fan. But man, that rundown followed by that double was really frustrating. I think it's because it's a Chatwood start. That guy is unwatchable.
   52. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:24 PM (#5690876)
Right there with ya, K-Bar. Maybe there's some pro bass fishing on another channel or something.
   53. Jay Seaver Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:30 PM (#5690879)
Another 5+2/3-inning game for EdRod (his fourth of the year). Dude just cannot have a 1-2-3 inning.
   54. rconn23 Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:30 PM (#5690880)
Greg Bird stinks.
   55. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:34 PM (#5690884)
0-2?

Blech.
   56. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:35 PM (#5690885)
Bryce Harper out of game after HBP on foot, maybe the toe. Also hit on elbow earlier. Rough night.
   57. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:35 PM (#5690887)
Maybe Chatwood just needs to grow his beard longer. I mean, he'd look a little like Arrieta, wouldn't he?
   58. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:37 PM (#5690889)
Still no hits after 5 innings for the Cardinals. Mikolas had one bad inning... and is on the hook for a loss.
   59. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:41 PM (#5690893)
Even if Mikolas reverts to his fip, I'll take it, the guy has shown nothing other than control of the game.

And it would be hilarious and annoying for the Padres to get their first franchise no hitter against the Cardinals (ala Mets---except that was a complete game by one pitcher) with a bullpen start.
   60. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:42 PM (#5690894)

Embarrassing LL rundown executed by the Cubs.


It was, but that was some pretty smart baserunning by Cain. He read that really well.
   66. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:52 PM (#5690905)
It's hilarious how the Cardinals announcers constantly quote John Mozeliak when talking about the Cardinal roster moves etc... I still cannot remember the name of the Cardinals current GM(Mike Girsch) and I don't think I've ever heard him speak.
   67. Misirlou doesn't live in the restaurant Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:53 PM (#5690907)
It was, but that was some pretty smart baserunning by Cain. He read that really well.


Full credit to him, but it was only possible because of the Cubs poor execution. They played monkey in the middle for far too long. At least 3 throws were far too early allowing Yelich to just jog back and forth.
   68. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:55 PM (#5690909)
Are the Cubs playing the Reds, if so, in a three game series against us earlier this week they had two piss poor rundowns. (looking it up, apparently they are playing the Brewers...so not really relevant)
   69. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: June 12, 2018 at 09:55 PM (#5690910)
Full credit to him, but it was only possible because of the Cubs poor execution.
The offense looks determined to pick up the defense by making those runs irrelevant.

3rd pitcher of the game for the Padres in the bottom of the 7th, they have faced the minimum (one hit, double play)

Yanks finally win a game---it's been 72 hours---but WILL THE RED SOX EVER LOSE????
   72. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 10:01 PM (#5690916)
two hits in a row, and the hottest hitter (Jose Martinez, professional hitter™ on the planet is up..(if you believe in that type of thing) )
   73. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 12, 2018 at 10:03 PM (#5690917)
Yankees game over, but laggardly Red Sox only in 7th.
   74. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 10:04 PM (#5690918)

   75. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 10:05 PM (#5690919)
In play run... I love that, when gameday is about 20 seconds ahead of the broadcast....
   76. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 10:07 PM (#5690920)
In play run again..... no clue what happened, I assume a fly out, but don't know yet... the anticipation is killing me......

Edit: ground out by yadier, but not enough to be doubled up, so he drives in the run.
   77. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 10:09 PM (#5690921)
If I remember the stats correctly, Gyorko has 9 homeruns in 15 games against the Padres.... not that that is predictive or anything, but it's a ridiculous split.
   78. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 10:10 PM (#5690922)
sigh...strikeout swinging... guy sucks... jettison his ass..
   79. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 10:17 PM (#5690927)
Hicks is improving his k rate with 2 k's against two batters this game.

McLaughlin brought up a point, Hicks has appeared in 31 games this year for the Cardinals, this is the 5th game he's appeared in, in which the Cardinals were behind, this gives you 1. an idea of the faith that the team has in this single a pitcher (and yes he never pitched above single a before this year) and 2. the thought process in that this game is winnable from a Matheny point of view.
   80. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 10:17 PM (#5690928)
Strikes out the side on 12 pitches(2 balls and one foul). I'm guessing he still needs a bit of work. But seriously these hitters had no real chance against him tonight.
   81. Jay Seaver Posted: June 12, 2018 at 10:22 PM (#5690930)
It's not like they NEEDED that run, but why did Febles send Nunez there?
   82. cardsfanboy Posted: June 12, 2018 at 10:42 PM (#5690941)
oh well, a loss when the offense didn't show up against crappy pitchers..
   83. Jay Seaver Posted: June 12, 2018 at 11:04 PM (#5690948)
What is this 9th inning garbage?
   84. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 12, 2018 at 11:11 PM (#5690952)

   85. Bote Man Posted: June 12, 2018 at 11:19 PM (#5690957)
The Nationals have not scored a run in like 19 consecutive innings. Their entire offense has gone buh-bye for now. Check back later.

Back to back multi HR games for that fish guy from Los Angeles. Pulling away from JD Martinez for the league lead.
   87. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 13, 2018 at 12:34 AM (#5690977)
Angels Still about to lose both games, though. Argh.
   88. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 13, 2018 at 01:03 AM (#5690992)

Back to back multi HR games for that fish guy from Los Angeles.


Trout has two multi-homer games in the first two games of the Angels/Mariners series. For the Mariners, Nelson Cruz had two last night, and tonight both Mitch Haniger and Ryon Healy have two. Counting Trout twice, that's five multi-homer games in two nights.
