WHO ON THE ANGELS WILL GET HURT TODAY?!
   2. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 09, 2018 at 01:59 PM (#5688915)
Harper HR (#19) puts Nationals up 6-4. The Capitals Alexander Ovechkin threw out the 1st pitch, and many of the STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS appear to be celebrating enthusiastically in one of the luxury boxes. Uncertain if these guys will be sober by the start of the 2018-19 season.
   3. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: June 09, 2018 at 02:35 PM (#5688934)
Not often you see a guy throw a nine-pitch inning, but also give up multiple runs.
   4. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: June 09, 2018 at 02:45 PM (#5688940)
Lester, on the other hand, might need 40 pitches to make it out of the first.
   5. Astroenteritis Posted: June 09, 2018 at 03:11 PM (#5688946)
How will the Mariners WIN BY ONE RUN today?!
   6. perros Posted: June 09, 2018 at 03:33 PM (#5688954)
The Brew Crew is putting the hurt on Phillies pitching this weekend.
   7. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 09, 2018 at 03:39 PM (#5688959)
Nationals win and are in sole possession of the NL East lead, pending action tonight. The Stanley Cup took in the entire game, and appears undamaged despite repeated hoisting. Adam Eaton finally returned to the line-up, playing RF which moved Harper to CF until late in the game when Michael Taylor took over with Harper sliding back to RF & Eaton out. That's all because terrific teenager Juan Soto has played too well to bench, despite only 35 PA above Class A when he was called up due to a cascade of outfield injuries. If Daniel Murphy, now on a rehab assignment, comes back soon the Nationals offense could be much improved.
   8. Howie Menckel Posted: June 09, 2018 at 04:07 PM (#5688977)
after that bizarre Adam "Captain" Morgan appearance the other night for PHI resulted in that last-strike grand slam by Heyward, Morgan is back for more pummeling today - at least this time down 6-3 in the 6th. oops, make that 10-3.

Mets have scored 8 runs in this 7-game losing streak

If Daniel Murphy, now on a rehab assignment, comes back soon the Nationals offense could be much improved.

But their run prevention just took a hit. Strasburg to the DL; shoulder inflammation.
   10. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 09, 2018 at 04:13 PM (#5688986)
Yankee line-up:
Hicks CF
Judge RF
Stanton LF
Sánchez C
Andújar 3B
Gregorius SS
Austin 1B
Germán SP
Torres 2B

Gardner & Bird get a rest against a lefthanded starter.
   11. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 04:13 PM (#5688987)
Luis Castillo gets 2/3rds of an immaculate inning against the first two Cardinals he faced, throws a borderline strike called a ball to Martinez on the next pitch.
   12. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 04:15 PM (#5688990)
Jose Martinez, Professional Hitter™, with homeruns in back, to back, to back games....
   13. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 04:16 PM (#5688991)
And Ozuna follows him with a homerun, Cards up 2-0 in the first inning. (That was a bomb) Cardinal announcers are claiming it's the longest homerun they remember seeing in Cincy's park.
   14. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 04:18 PM (#5688992)
Measured at only 435 feet, and only 110mph off the bat.
   15. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 09, 2018 at 04:26 PM (#5688996)
Strasburg to the DL; shoulder inflammation.

This is probably more of a ripple effect of the Jeremy Hellickson injury, but the Nationals have now opted to pitch Max Scherzer tomorrow, and will go with Tanner Roark & TBD for the Yankee series Monday & Tuesday. Nats are suddenly down two starting pitchers.
   16. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: June 09, 2018 at 04:29 PM (#5688998)
Hicks CF
Judge RF
Stanton LF
Sánchez C
Andújar 3B
Gregorius SS
Austin 1B
Germán SP
Torres 2B


Torres really need to be hitting higher. He's got a .900 OPS.

Gregorius should also grab some pine against the LHP. What the heck do you have Walker for? Start Torres at SS.
   17. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 04:57 PM (#5689009)
Yadier with a bases loaded double to give the Cardinals a 5-0 lead.. The fans were booing him when he came up to bat, and they are ecstatically cheering him now... it's definitely not an all Cincy fans at this game.
   18. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 09, 2018 at 04:59 PM (#5689011)
Coley Harvey, ESPN Staff Writer

Yankees announce that starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka is going on the 10-day disabled list (mild strains of both hamstrings). To replace him on the roster, the Yankees are bringing back infielder Ronald Torreyes from Triple-A.

An additional roster move will likely be needed when Tanaka's turn in the rotation comes up.

2018 Gold Glove winner Matt Chapman hasn't turned any double plays yet today, but he's got 52 in his 149 game career (@1300 innings).

MLB single-season record for DPs by a 3b is Graig Nettles, 1971 - 54 in 158 games (1403.1 innings).

Not bad, he has a 4.7 war so far after 147 games, and it's not entirely defensive based, 3.0 oWar, 4.2 dWar. (meaning he is a plus player on both sides of the ball for his position)
   21. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 06:17 PM (#5689040)
Carpenter makes it 6-2 with a bullet to right... not far, but a clear homerun and got out in a hurry.
   22. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 06:25 PM (#5689045)
Nice freaking play by Schebler on a bullet hit to center, he comes charging in to catch it, and the ball ends up carrying a bit further than he thought it was going to and had to adjust his glove to make a very nice play.

   23. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:03 PM (#5689055)
Reds keep chipping away, a Winker homerun makes it 6-4 in the bottom of the 8th.... and it's possible that neither Hicks or Norris are available for todays game.
   24. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:08 PM (#5689057)
Assuming that Norris and Hicks are unavailable, that leaves Brebbia and Cecil as the only options.... I have no problems with either for the most part, Cecil hasn't been good, but also hasn't pitched a lot either.
   25. Tom Nawrocki Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:10 PM (#5689058)
Just when Carlos Gonzalez had finally started heating up - he's at .400/.426/.644 over the past two weeks - the Rox announced he's missing tonight's game due to back spasms.
   26. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:14 PM (#5689059)
That was some piss poor baserunning by the Reds... men on first and second, one out, two run game bottom of the eighth... a line drive to right field that the right fielder ends up making the catch with his back to the field, and yet the man on second doesn't tag up... meaning he had strayed too far off the bag to tag up. That is idiotic, if he doesn't make the catch you are going to score easily even if you stay on the bag, if he makes the catch you should be at third.
   27. Perry Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:16 PM (#5689060)
Matheny had no case there, the ball didn't hit the runner, the 1B caught the ball, ergo no interference, no matter if the runner was inside the foul line. Moot, though, out call upheld on review.
   28. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:18 PM (#5689062)
First pitch in NY hit by Hicks for a Grounds Rule Double ... THROUGH THE OPEN METS BULLPEN DOOR.
   29. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:19 PM (#5689063)
Hicks leads off the game with a hit hru the strangely open bullpen door Should be a HR, based on degree of difficulty, but only gets a double.
   30. caspian88 Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:20 PM (#5689064)
Speaking of the Angels - when are they going to push Pujols down in the lineup? I'm not sure he could outhit a late 70's shortstop anymore, and they're all pushing 60.

In happier Pujols news, he's only one RBI behind Musial.
   31. TomH Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:21 PM (#5689065)
crazy stat of the day; should not be too hard.

Alltime OPS leaders: 3 of the top 6 were contemporaries in the same league, and played the same position!
(talk about tough competition for the all-star game)
   32. Perry Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:28 PM (#5689066)
I though Yadi just missed it at first but I think the ump's right, it hit the knob of Votto's bat -- that's why Yadi didn't catch it.
   33. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:29 PM (#5689067)
Don't believe game day, the first pitch to Votto was not a foul, it was a strike called, even though the umpire was hit by the pitch and didn't make the normal call... Hicks injuring umps and catchers so far this season.
   34. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:29 PM (#5689068)
I though Yadi just missed it at first but I think the ump's right, it hit the knob of Votto's bat -- that's why Yadi didn't catch it.


no, it wasn't even particularly close to the bat, it was a called strike, not a foul.
   35. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:32 PM (#5689069)
Well, German is off to a splendid start ...

/sarcasm
   36. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:34 PM (#5689070)
4 up ... 3 runs.

Good job, German.

Christ.
   37. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:34 PM (#5689071)
2 homers and triple, go Mets!
   38. Perry Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:34 PM (#5689072)
no, it wasn't even particularly close to the bat, it was a called strike, not a foul.


I disagree, it ticked off the knob. Deflected it just enough that Yadi missed it. When the Reds dugout questioned it the ump gave the foul tip signal (brushed one hand against the other).
   39. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:35 PM (#5689073)
Hicks is helping his k/9 ratio since he was criticized for not having many strikeouts for being a 100mph pitcher, as he strikes out the side in his one inning appearance today.
   40. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:36 PM (#5689075)
I disagree, it ticked off the knob. Deflected it just enough that Yadi missed it. When the Reds dugout questioned it the ump gave the foul tip signal (brushed one hand against the other).


Slo mo replayed showed it missed it by about 2 inches, it wasn't particularly close.
   41. Perry Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:37 PM (#5689076)
Hicks starting to rack up more strikeouts, either he changed something to get more movement or the earlier low K rate was just SSS.
   42. Perry Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:38 PM (#5689077)
Slo mo replayed showed it missed it by about 2 inches, it wasn't particularly close.


Not how I or the ump saw it. (Or heard it, I'm sure the ump called it a foul tip based on the sound.) You can see it change direction slightly as it ticks off the bat knob.
   43. cardsfanboy Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:39 PM (#5689078)
Hicks starting to rack up more strikeouts, either he changed something to get more movement or the earlier low K rate was just SSS.


I'll go with both. He was trying to get to 105 so he wasn't concentrating on "pitching" vs "throwing" and once he got that 105 he has slowed down just a tad where he's getting a bit better control and is no longer in the heart of the plate, at the same time, it was SSS to an extent.
   44. Perry Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:39 PM (#5689079)
But hey, either way, good win.
   45. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:53 PM (#5689087)
Albert Pujols just tied Stan Musial on the all-time RBI list with an upper deck shot in Minny.
   46. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: June 09, 2018 at 07:57 PM (#5689089)
EVERYBODY GLEYBER NOW!

3-1
   47. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: June 09, 2018 at 08:09 PM (#5689092)
German back into trouble ... though at least the DP is in play again!
   48. TomH Posted: June 09, 2018 at 08:11 PM (#5689093)
Do the Mets often lead off with Rosario? That seems... odd.
   49. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 09, 2018 at 08:20 PM (#5689097)
You have got to be kidding me, the Mets lose like 7 straight, and then they beat MY BOMBERS ?!

No Way !
   50. Tom Nawrocki Posted: June 09, 2018 at 08:21 PM (#5689098)
Trevor Story's second two-run homer of the game makes it 4-2 Rockies over the D-Backs, still batting in the bottom of the third.
   51. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 09, 2018 at 08:23 PM (#5689099)
I will now, officially curse the Yankees !

If you don't beat the Mets to-night, you will never win a World Series again !

Done.
   52. TomH Posted: June 09, 2018 at 08:26 PM (#5689100)
I sure hope you are right, 51 :) I may live another 30 or so years, and 0 Yankee trophies would be a nice completion of my earthly journey

Hicks starting to rack up more strikeouts, either he changed something to get more movement or the earlier low K rate was just SSS.

Looks like he's been throwing his slider more, or at least getting better use from it. When you have even a credible breaking pitch, a 102 MPH fastball is suddenly a lot harder to hit.
   56. Baldrick Posted: June 09, 2018 at 08:44 PM (#5689112)
Charlie Morton pulled after issuing 6 walks (and 3 HBP) through 3 2/3 innings. Ouch.

Edit: Sorry, it was FOUR HBP.
   57. TomH Posted: June 09, 2018 at 08:44 PM (#5689113)
$1.672 Billion in salaries the last 8 years, usually the top each season. Money ahsn't bought anything this decade...
   58. TomH Posted: June 09, 2018 at 08:46 PM (#5689115)
Goldschmidt is 12 for his 17, with 8 of those XBHs. Maybe he's back?
   59. Howie Menckel Posted: June 09, 2018 at 08:48 PM (#5689117)
Aaron Judge feeble groundout with bases loaded, 2 out and Yankees down 3-1 in the 5th.

he's now 3 for his last 29, the majority of those outs being strikeouts.

came into the game with a 156 OPS+ after 171 last year, so I imagine he has a little rope

:)

Despite allowing 3 runs in the first, Domingo German has held the Mets scoreless since, while striking out 9, and now has a 59 Game Score, compared to 52 for Matz. Both starters done after 6.

Is there such a thing as a fast track Regression to the Mean? If there is, the Phillies are on it.

Lord, they are making at least one god-awful play a game, sometimes 3 or 4.
   64. TomH Posted: June 09, 2018 at 09:19 PM (#5689127)
62, bingo. The other 3 are Ruth, Williams, Bonds. The 30s were a good time to be a hitter!

He's batted eight times in the series against the Rockies so far, and has four homers and a double.

"Yoenis Cespedes’ comeback is again on hold.

The Mets outfielder left his minor-league rehab appearance for Double-A Binghamton at Trenton on Saturday with tightness in his right quadriceps, according to the team.

Cespedes, who was playing his first game in the outfield in his rehab stint, will be reevaluated by the Mets on Sunday."

   72. Howie Menckel Posted: June 09, 2018 at 09:42 PM (#5689139)
the Mets don't have closer Familia (DL), so who would close tonight?

the thought was Gsellman - but he was warming in the 6th with a 3-1 lead and comes on in the 7th at 3-3. PH fails.

so here is recently-activated Swarzak for the 8th, who pretty much set up a tee, walked to the plate to place it there to Judge, and then helped him swing at it.

so who would close tonight?
no one - the Mets will never have a lead in a game ever again anyway, so it's an academic question.
   73. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 09, 2018 at 09:47 PM (#5689140)
LOL @Betances

But nice, also !
   74. Baldrick Posted: June 09, 2018 at 09:51 PM (#5689143)
Aaron Judge feeble groundout with bases loaded, 2 out and Yankees down 3-1 in the 5th.

he's now 3 for his last 29, the majority of those outs being strikeouts.

In his next at-bat, Judge hit a go-ahead home run.
   75. Howie Menckel Posted: June 09, 2018 at 09:52 PM (#5689144)
nice to see the late Leslie Nielsen coming on as the celebrity ump for the bottom of the 8th.

you might think that veterans Frazier and AsCabrera and OBP machine Nimmo know a little bit about the strike zone, and Betances' control is shaky - but Sanchez's "framing" and Nielsen's love for the punchout prove a perfect combo.

if Leslie sticks around for Chapman in the 9th, the Mets shouldn't even bother.
   76. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 09, 2018 at 10:00 PM (#5689147)
Why the #### are the Angels winning all the time ? Who said YES to that ? Has he been shot or hanged yet ?
Nuke the friggin Angels !
   77. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 09, 2018 at 10:02 PM (#5689148)
Looks like Howie is going to get tossed if the umpire has time to check in at BBTF.
   78. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 09, 2018 at 10:14 PM (#5689149)
Yankees go for the sweep tomorrow night with Luis Severino.
   79. Howie Menckel Posted: June 09, 2018 at 10:14 PM (#5689150)
lol
they brought the real ump back for the 9th - Chapman got no favors

the sense of dread on the faces of Mets fans as the rotting corpse of Jose Reyes - .141 AVG and .405 OPS (yes, really) is the PH with 1st and 2nd, 2 out, down 4-3 in the 9th to the archrival - was palpable.

a decade ago, Reyes was a whirling dervish - when he hit the ball into the gap, you could just blink and he'd be on third base.

this version is a desperate one. after Chapman walked the legendary Plawecki on 4 pitches (!), one would think maybe not swing at the first 3 pitches (especially after Leslie died again). all fouls, then a feeble fly out to right. (so his 14 OPS+ will go down - or will it?)

I will go out on a limb and say that is the last pitch Reyes ever sees in a Mets uniform.
   80. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 09, 2018 at 10:18 PM (#5689152)
Chapman is really not a good closer. He throws changeups at the wrong time, and just basically looks like a loser.

NY needs a real closer.
   81. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 09, 2018 at 10:28 PM (#5689155)
NY needs a real closer.


Someone crazy, someone cool. Someone who does nothing else, but rule.
Someone like... Bill Cosby ! No, kidding. Someone like that bird-man dude or that giants slider dude, or that dude with the crooked hat.. no , kidding again !
The Yankees need someone cool !
   82. Tom Nawrocki Posted: June 09, 2018 at 10:30 PM (#5689157)
With the Rockies nursing a 7-6 lead in the 8th, Bud Black brings in Bryan Shaw to work on his 6.89 ERA. Six runs later, Black has to turn to Brooks Pounders to get the third out of the inning.

I never saw him much with Cleveland, but there is nothing about Bryan Shaw that resembles a major league pitcher at this point.

Fun fact about Brooks Pounders: After getting one out tonight, he is just one out away from getting his career ERA to an even 9. He's allowed 35 earned runs in his career over 34 2/3 innings.

That truly is a fun fact.
   84. Tom Nawrocki Posted: June 09, 2018 at 10:38 PM (#5689160)
He did it! By striking out Ketel Marte leading off the ninth, Brooks Pounders has now pitched exactly 35 innings in his career, and allowed exactly 35 earned runs.

Only in 2010s baseball could a man with more than 1 KO per inning have an ERA of 9.
   86. TomH Posted: June 09, 2018 at 10:41 PM (#5689163)
Jack Pfiester; careeer ERA of 2.02. Less than 1 KO per TWO innings.

His name is Brooks Pounders.


That would have been funnier, if his name was Quarter Pounders.

It is really too late for pounders intended.

Yeah, but here's a serious question for Mets fans: Why are those 8 turds so happy?

Fifteen years ago today, Jose Reyes made his Major League debut for the Mets at age 19. He went 2-for-4 with a double.

And he's still getting his slap hits, even if they're not baseballs these days.

Carlos Martinez strikes out the side in the 2nd inning, he's looking pretty good today.
   98. cardsfanboy Posted: June 10, 2018 at 02:03 PM (#5689247)
Anthony DeSclafani doesn't seem to be faring as well as Carlos, single and two walks gives a bases loaded one out situation for Ozuna.... who then promptly hits a ball to the wall but a nice catch by Winker, and a double play to end the inning.

Cardinals are asking for a replay for two reasons, one Winker might have trapped the ball, and two the fielder might have tagged the runner and not did the force out...if he tagged the runner, Carpenter run counts.
   99. cardsfanboy Posted: June 10, 2018 at 02:06 PM (#5689248)
Replay ruled no catch.... okay, that was a bit surprising.... so it was a trapped off the wall and the Cardinals get the run.

Carlos not as sharp in the third, but he's also being squeezed a bit.
