"HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!"
   2. Bote Man Posted: September 16, 2017 at 12:56 PM (#5532993)
HOW WILL THE NATIONALS RE-IGNITE THE DODGERS' WINNING STREAK TODAY?!
   3. Bote Man Posted: September 16, 2017 at 01:43 PM (#5533016)
Gary Cederstrom is calling a VERY high strike zone today, plus a few outside are called strikes as well. Great for Rich Hill, not so great for Nats hitters.
   4. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 01:56 PM (#5533021)
So Wong is more or less out for the season(chronic back issues) and the local paper is arguing that Garcia or Mejia will probably take over for the majority of the games, and I'm thinking, wouldn't it make more sense for it to be Gyorko or Carpenter, depending on how you like the defense, personally I put Carp at second and Gyorko at third as Carpenter is close to an average fielding second baseman, and a below average third baseman, while Gyorko is above average at both(and having a great year this year defensively at third, but that is just a sample size thing, he's not the second best fielding third baseman in baseball or even a top five)
   5. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: September 16, 2017 at 01:57 PM (#5533023)
The Dodgers' bad stretch feels like a distant memory. Bellinger and Seager healthy and together is just crazy fearsome.
   6. BDC Posted: September 16, 2017 at 01:59 PM (#5533024)
Adrian Beltre hit his 95th career sacrifice fly last night, tying him with Al Oliver and Dave Winfield for 48th all-time (or at least since 1953 or whenever SF records started to be kept as a separate thing).

Initial reports were that he would not be back at all this year, of course, but he PH on Wednesday and has DH'd two games in a row now.
   7. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: September 16, 2017 at 03:51 PM (#5533063)
Yasiel Puig saved the Dodgers in the field in the 8th inning.
   8. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: September 16, 2017 at 03:58 PM (#5533066)
The Dodgers win the series in Washington. This will make it very difficult for the Nationals to get the number 1 seed. Of course, they'd probably rather play the Cubs than the wild card anyway.
   9. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 16, 2017 at 04:14 PM (#5533072)
Gary Sanchez hit his 31st HR the other day, passing some pretty good catchers who had hit 30 for the Yankee record: Yogi Berra (1952 & 1956) & Jorge Posada (2003). One can even quibble about the record - Berra & Posada hit all their HRs while catching, Sanchez has 6 this year while at DH or 1st Base. But that's missing the big picture. Sanchez missed 4 weeks with a biceps strain and there's still 2 weeks left in the season! If he can stay healthy for an entire season, Sanchez may hit 40+ HRs.
   10. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 16, 2017 at 04:21 PM (#5533073)
Ump has missed 2 clear strikes right over the plate against Hendricks so far. Hendricks hasn't made a peep.

Edit: another one, but that was just on the corner, so it shoulda but wasn't a bar miss per se.

Edit 2:. 4. Better call it tight all game, but he's already rung up Bryant in a high borderline one.
   11. Heart of Matt Harvey Posted: September 16, 2017 at 04:29 PM (#5533077)
Good to see the Dodgers are still in line for 110 wins.
   12. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 16, 2017 at 04:46 PM (#5533084)
25 pitches through 3 for Wacha. Cubs must have planned to jump on early pitches as a team, zobrist has 2 outs on 2 pitches.
   13. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: September 16, 2017 at 04:54 PM (#5533085)
7th guy Hendricks has picked off this year.
   14. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 04:56 PM (#5533086)
And of course McCarver is going on an extended rant about the bad baserunning of the Cardinals and why was Martinez that far off the bag...he was not far off the bag, he was just beat.
   15. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 16, 2017 at 05:49 PM (#5533102)
3-run HRs by Didi Gregorius & Greg Bird put the Yankees up 6-0. The Orioles pitching leaves a lot to be desired, smoke & mirrors kept them in fringe contention for much of the season.
   16. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 05:54 PM (#5533108)
Bunt fail by Baez. One of those things that qualifies as "you see something new every game".(he bunts it about a foot in front of the bag and literally falls down taking his first step, while on the ground, with the bat still in his hand, he accidentally touches the ball a second time with the bat while laying on the ground, called out.

Now McCarver going on another rant about Cardinals defense... "if he gets a hit in front of you, you are playing too deep."(in regards to playing defense for Jon Jay)
   17. Bote Man Posted: September 16, 2017 at 05:59 PM (#5533111)
New York Yankees @Yankees
The 147 runs we've scored vs. Baltimore this year is the most by any team vs. any opponent in a single season since 1961.

That's a shabby way to treat the town that spawned you!!
   18. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:05 PM (#5533117)
It's looking more and more likely the Cubs are going to end the Cardinals season effectively tomorrow... :(
   19. rconn23 Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:10 PM (#5533120)
I don't want to ever stop playing the Orioles.
   20. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:17 PM (#5533127)
McCarver spent most of the last couple of seasons railing against the shift and now just said "I don't know why the Cardinals don't employ the shift against Rizzo.".... no matter what they do, he's going to find fault with the team, I can only hope they don't renew his contract another season, he's extremely bright and informed, but so set in his ways, and has already made up his mind that he hates this team, that he can't see past that hatred, and just find faults with everything they do, no matter how normal it is.
   21. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:31 PM (#5533141)
Carpenter with his 20th of the season to make it 3-2 bad guys still.
   22. Man o' Schwar Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:33 PM (#5533142)
You mean 3-1 good guys.
   23. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:34 PM (#5533143)
damnit....for some reason I thought there was a man on base(my dogs are distracting me, by being total a-holes right now)
   24. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:35 PM (#5533144)
that was what you call, 'carved up' by Edwards jr on Pham.
   25. Man o' Schwar Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:39 PM (#5533151)
I much prefer this version of Edwards to the one who couldn't find the plate back in July/early August.
   26. Man o' Schwar Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:39 PM (#5533153)
Welcome back Addison Russell!
   27. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:40 PM (#5533155)
I literally said, out loud...."Wow", when Russell made contact with that ball, that was a f-ing blast.
   28. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:52 PM (#5533163)
DeJong really should get a day or two of rest. There is enough on the roster, that it makes little sense for both him and Carpenter to be playing everyday(and yes I get Carpenter just hit a homerun, but he's clearly hurt and struggling a bit right now)
   29. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:55 PM (#5533166)
I defend Matheny a lot, but there is one crime this year that I can't accept, even though I understand why he continues to do it, and understand that there is probably zero managers in the history of the game that would do it differently, but playing Fowler in centerfield is the biggest mistake he's made this season. And continuing to play him, with Sierra, Bader, Pham, and Grichuk on the roster is a crime. Not saying don't play him, I'm saying he should be the left fielder. He profiles similar to Lou Brock in 1964. (better plate discipline, but beyond that, you are talking about a good power speed guy with no arm and not a strong defender)
   30. cardsfanboy Posted: September 16, 2017 at 06:58 PM (#5533168)
ugh...not the way anyone with a soul was hoping this series would go... Cubs take the first two.
   31. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 16, 2017 at 07:19 PM (#5533183)
The Indians have won one in a row.
   32. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 16, 2017 at 08:54 PM (#5533212)
ESPN Stats and Information

With their win today, the Yankees clinched their 25th consecutive winning season. They have not had a losing record since 1992. The only longer streak of winning seasons in major league history also belongs to the Yankees: 39, from 1926 to 1964 (source: Elias Sports Bureau).

The pain of the CBS years still lingers.
   33. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: September 16, 2017 at 09:20 PM (#5533221)
Upton goes uptown, #30. Angels trying to keep the dream alive.
   34. Bote Man Posted: September 16, 2017 at 09:28 PM (#5533225)
F@CK THE YANKEES!!

Playing .500 baseball.
   37. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 16, 2017 at 09:54 PM (#5533239)
The Padres get their first hit with two outs in the bottom of the sixth - a little dribbler that goes about 15 feet in front of the plate. Rox up 7-0.
   38. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 16, 2017 at 11:14 PM (#5533263)
It's getting ugly in Denver: Pat Valaika's pinch-hit grand slam makes it 16-0 Rockies.

New York Yankees @Yankees
The 147 runs we've scored vs. Baltimore this year is the most by any team vs. any opponent in a single season since 1961.


It's now up to 150, but that should pretty much be it for the season, since the O's are bypassing Gausman in the rotation tomorrow and pitching their ace, Ubaldo Jiminez.

Apparently they're saving Gausman and Bundy for the Red Sox with an extra day of rest, which seems like the sporting thing to do. In the Red Sox series at the end of August, Gausman pitched 7.2 shutout innings with a 73 game score.
   40. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: September 17, 2017 at 01:51 AM (#5533284)
[39] Ubaldo Jimenez 6.75 ERA this year. I'm guessing that you're being sarcastic, though not sure why.
   41. Lest we forget Posted: September 17, 2017 at 07:55 AM (#5533290)
Mike Trout is on his way to leading the AL in Slugging, OBP and OPS - that will be a first for him! Way to go, Mike.

So where will he land in the MVP voting? Top 5? Top 2? I'm hoping top 2 so that his streak of 'top 2 or better' continues for another year. Plus, he deserves it.
   42. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: September 17, 2017 at 10:14 AM (#5533307)
If Trout kicks it up an extra notch down the stretch and the Angels get a WC, he could win it. As things stand right now, he'd finish second to Altuve.

When it comes to Ubaldo Jimenez, sarcasm is the only possible POV.

Re: Trout. I just noticed that literally overnight, Trout's Rfield on bbref went from -7 to 1, causing his WAR to jump from 6.0 to 6.8. I saw the game last night; he was fine, but he wasn't that good in it. What would cause that? It wasn't some reformulation--his previous season's defensive numbers didn't budge. Some sort of data dump?

Andrelton Simmons has fallen off the map. He went from about 25 last I checked to 6. Betts has fallen from seemingly infinity down to 4. Maybe it's just a temporary error and they're feeding the data from April 17?

As far as Trout for MVP goes, I think his recent blah-ness (.231/.416/.432 over his last 30 games) has hurt him. Jose Ramirez is coming into his own and getting a lot of love, Aaron Judge has been strong recently, Kluber has been absolutely lights out, and so there are just a lot of stories out there for very good players that writers/voters like (A rookie out of nowhere, great players on a 22-game-winning-streak team that's charging into the playoffs). I suspect Trout'll land top-5, but unless he finishes out the season on the warpath, I could see the a close race in spots 2-5 with him actually a bit of a dog at this point.
   45. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 11:47 AM (#5533320)
If someone wants to get creative, they could really sell the story of Trout pulling the Angels into contention, when he came back from his injury, the Angels were 45-48, since then they have gone 31-24.

Wong pulling a Beltre, supposedly iffy for the season, getting a start today.
   48. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 02:39 PM (#5533360)
Nobody is going to mistake DeJong for a great fielder at any point in time, but he is solid there. I can see him being a league average defender and a plus bat there for several years(eventually he'll have to move of course, but right now he feels like a shortstop version of Jeff Kent--since we were talking about him on another thread---)
   49. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 02:56 PM (#5533367)
I guess if Wong is healthy enough to play, this lineup makes sense, but I'm curious why Gyorko hasn't been getting any playing time since coming back off the DL.
   50. Meatwad Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:02 PM (#5533371)
face must be happy, through 2 and a half innings in 40 minutes.
   51. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:03 PM (#5533372)
5 of the Cardinal 9 outs have been by strikeouts.... On pace for a 15 strikeout day.
   52. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:05 PM (#5533374)
[44] Looks like just about everyone's rField has been pushed toward the center. I'll go tweet at Sean.
   53. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:12 PM (#5533377)
Every broadcast with Tim McCarver involves him giving a blow job to the opposition play, and him going on a rant about some perceived fundamental failure of the Cardinals team.

   54. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:14 PM (#5533379)
[44] Looks like just about everyone's rField has been pushed toward the center. I'll go tweet at Sean.


You made me look it up, Jed Gyorko went from +18 rField to +2. They must have done some type of huge change.
   55. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:21 PM (#5533381)
That could have been a lot worse than it was.... Only one run scored for the Cubs.
   56. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:21 PM (#5533382)
Who is pitching for Detroit? He's got a good game going.
   57. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:22 PM (#5533383)
face must be happy, through 2 and a half innings in 40 minutes.

Yesterday's game got off to a similarly quick start - I remember mentioning that to Spahn. Of course, the early innings generally aren't a big part of the problem.
   58. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:30 PM (#5533390)
Matthew Boyd at 103 pitches with two outs in the 8th..... it's going to be hard to justify him going out there in the ninth in a 9-0 game.
   59. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:31 PM (#5533391)
Quick third out, now 105 pitches going into the ninth.... you have to bring him back out there for the ninth now.
   60. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:33 PM (#5533393)
Man on first and second one out and it says "in play no out." that is nice and all, but I want an in play, run.

Apparently the Cubs defense has decided to take the 4th inning off... Bryant with an error, Almora missed a ball he should have caught, and of course Yadier fixes those mistakes with a first pitch double play.
   61. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:35 PM (#5533394)
Kind of cool to see Quintana trying to be the calming presence following the error from Bryant. Quite the contrast to Lackey, who, at best, would've probably just stood with their with that stupid mouth agape expression he has when he's upset.
   62. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:37 PM (#5533395)
Almora missed a ball he should have caught


Really? He was very close to nabbing it, but it would've been a really nifty, shoestring catch.
   63. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:39 PM (#5533396)
Damnit.... homerun bad guys.

Really? He was very close to nabbing it, but it would've been a really nifty, shoestring catch.


looked like a piss poor jump/judge to me.
   64. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:39 PM (#5533397)
that stupid mouth agape expression he has when he's upset.

And when he's happy...and when he's anxious...and asleep.
   65. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:41 PM (#5533398)
Dan McLaughlin went to the Cubs bullpen dancing and said "isn't that great" and Tim McCarver kept his mouth shut.

   66. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:42 PM (#5533399)
Have to credit Dan McLaughlin there for being psychic.... he literally says "how about a ball hit for a double play right to Kolten Wong." a half a second later, the ball is hit to Kolten Wong for the double play. (of course he makes predictions like that about 10-15 times a game, and you only remember the times he's right)
   67. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:45 PM (#5533401)
12-0 Detroit over the White Sox in the bottom of the 8th inning(Detroit is home team) . Only one White Sox has reached a base so far.
   68. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:45 PM (#5533402)
Nice to see Darren O'Day find himself again. Good game today, and really good the last few months.
   69. Meatwad Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:46 PM (#5533403)
Pat and ron note that the last time they cubs swept the cards twice at wrigley in a season was 2006.
   70. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:46 PM (#5533404)
Walking the pitcher....really Lynn, how do you do that and look in the mirror the next day....
   71. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:47 PM (#5533406)
Pat and ron note that the last time they cubs swept the cards twice at wrigley in a season was 2006.


Earlier in the game the Cardinals crew listed the Cardinals worst records against the Cubs at Wrigley during a season, 1918 they went 0-9, this year they are 1-7 right now, and have three(?) other seasons where they had two wins.


and of course a ####### run now. 3-0....
   72. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:53 PM (#5533408)
8 2/3rds no hitter, double breaks it up.
   73. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:56 PM (#5533410)
Baseball is a cruel mistress.
   74. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 17, 2017 at 03:57 PM (#5533411)

Which is kind of funny, considering how putrid the Cubs were that season and the Cards, despite being far from dominant, did win the World Series.

It's looking more and more likely the Cubs are going to end the Cardinals season effectively tomorrow... :(


Yep, a lost today probably ends the season for the Cardinals, both for the division and the wildcard, they had to take one out of three, and really needed to take two out of three, as it stands, the Cardinals destiny is no longer in their own hands(which is when I start to lose faith in a chance for the season)
   78. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 04:12 PM (#5533423)
McCarver is having a problem multiplying 4 times 3...he's trying to figure out how many outs the Cardinals have left in this game to try and tie it up.... "12 outs, 16, 15, 20,....12, I was right the first time."
   79. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 04:13 PM (#5533424)
Carpenter with a leadoff "double", how will the Cardinals strand him on the bases this time. (Cubs are having a devil of a time defensively today)
   80. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: September 17, 2017 at 04:14 PM (#5533425)
Jebus. Joey Gallo just hit one of the longest homer I've ever seen in Angel Stadium.

strikeout, strikeout, and up to Fowler....
   83. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 17, 2017 at 04:24 PM (#5533428)
81 and 82 are amusing.
   84. cardsfanboy Posted: September 17, 2017 at 04:24 PM (#5533429)
omg, how many times do they have to mention the number of homeruns that Dexter Fowler has from each side of the plate. I'm pretty ####### confident that Fowler has not come to bat, since July, without the Cardinal announcers talking about his homerun split...

and of course he then hits a game tying 3 run homer as I'm typing this.
   85. phredbird Posted: September 17, 2017 at 04:25 PM (#5533430)

Jebus. Joey Gallo just hit one of the longest homer I've ever seen in Angel Stadium.

Man, you're not wrong. 3/4 of the way up the grassy field beyond center. That's got to be 450+.

McCarver just said "that might be Yadier Molina's first uncontested steal of his career."

Have you ever watched Cardinal baseball? Almost all of Yadiers 56 career steals have been uncontested.

Oakland is making Rhys Hoskins look like a typical befuddled rookie. Dude is all kinds of out of sync.
Meanwhile, Matt Olsen's homered again. 21 for the season, in just 169 ABs, 7 homers in his last 9 games. He hit 23 in 343 ABS at AAA Nashville, so that's 44 for the year so far for him.

It's to the point now that I check everything Tim says. "You might see a bunt here, Addison Russell is a very good bunter.".... Addison Russell has made a total of 8 bunt attempts in his entire career. has 2 hits in 7 at bats, that a .286 average, league average for bunt attempts is much higher(because of sacrifices---just looking at over the past 3 seasons combined across major leagues, you have a .401 average on bunt attempts)

Somehow the Cardinals managed to look like a major league team and actually get out of a tough situation.

i can't watch too many more innings like that ...

I love having our own Billy Hamilton. Sierra is electric(and according to statcast, last time I looked, he was the second fastest player in the majors)

This is totally the kind of game the cardinals will win.

Of course if you have that amount of speed, it makes sense to try and use it.... we are still playing station to station offense.

Strop can't find the strike zone, so DeJong is helping him out by swinging at pitches out of the strike zone.

Flip to second.
