Hmmmm... Hernandez is unlikely to see the sixth inning today, but because of yesterday he probably will. Welcome to the Jason Marquis club, Orlando...
   2. Edmundo got dem ol' Kozma blues again mama Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:53 AM (#2141407)
Wolf hasn't looked sharp yet so the Mets might get their 13 runs tonight.
   3. Sam M. Posted: August 15, 2006 at 02:22 PM (#2141456)
I officially hate Real Time Chatter. You miss the chat, like I did last night, and you can't review what people had to say about it after the fact. It's another example of our society's obsession with instant gratification without any regard for how it feels the next day . . . .
   4. Banta Posted: August 15, 2006 at 03:09 PM (#2141484)
I agree with Sam. It's nice being about to review comments on the game if you didn't get a chance to see it.

The chat needs work in general, you can't say DAMN or HELL in it and I NEED those words. I say those words in church all the time! Yet, ########## is alright. You guys can guess what word I meant there.

A log of the chat would be nice to. Where do I file my complaints?
   5. Banta Posted: August 15, 2006 at 03:10 PM (#2141485)
Plus, the chat doesn't censor the words, it tells you to rephrase it. Is this management's way of getting us to improve our tone?
   6. Lance Broadway Howie Rose (Gian-Angelo Gallace) Posted: August 15, 2006 at 05:57 PM (#2141686)
Agreed with 3 and 4. On some days where I've missed the game, I've gone straight to chatter afterward (without first findout out the result or score) and it's a fun way to learn what happened. Though I'd rather not relive the comments on the Billy Wagner Yankees meltdown.
   7. Rob Base Posted: August 15, 2006 at 09:27 PM (#2141984)
I agree. Let's boycott the real-time chatter.
   8. AJMcCringleberry Posted: August 15, 2006 at 10:53 PM (#2142042)
Count me among those who don't like the real time chatter.
   9. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: August 15, 2006 at 10:56 PM (#2142044)
So okay, there's no one at the real game chatter. Are we going to be using the old skool one today then?
   10. Rob Base Posted: August 15, 2006 at 10:58 PM (#2142046)
I vote yes.
   11. Bob Koo Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:02 PM (#2142051)
Real-time game chatter is useful, like IRC, for games where everyone will watch and therefore chime in on almost every single play (read: playoff games). For regular season games, snail game chatter is better.

Can Willie just give Milledge some at-bats out of the #7 hole already? Does Milledge have to bat behind Woodward?
   12. AJMcCringleberry Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:05 PM (#2142056)
Tucker yesterday, Woodward today. Why isn't Endy getting these starts in left?
   13. AJMcCringleberry Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:07 PM (#2142058)
JOSE REYES!!
   14. Bob Koo Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:11 PM (#2142068)
Oh geez, that was ridiculous.
   15. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:12 PM (#2142070)
I'm glad you're boycotting the real time chatter. I'm new to this and that baffled me.
   16. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:14 PM (#2142072)
I missed the top of the first. Can someone tell me what happened?
   17. Rob Base Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:17 PM (#2142076)
It's ok. Dookie will shut em down 2 through 8.
   18. Rob Base Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:20 PM (#2142083)
This is not good.
   19. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:20 PM (#2142084)
Are we about to be embarrassed again? Just get me to the ####### playoffs already.
   20. Bob Koo Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:20 PM (#2142085)
David Dellucci is annoying.
   21. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:21 PM (#2142086)
Deja Vu?
   22. Raskolnikov Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:25 PM (#2142099)
Jimmy C at metsgeek came up with a pretty good nickname the other night: The MotherTucker. It's too obscene for my tastes, but definitely gets some points for cleverness. How about The MichaelTucker?
   23. Bob Koo Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:39 PM (#2142129)
Milledge didn't catch the ball and airmailed a throw, allowing Rollins to move up? I'm shocked.
   24. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:41 PM (#2142136)
Hm...certainly not the peformance you want to see from two of your top three starters.
   25. Bob Koo Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:44 PM (#2142140)
It's a problem for El Duque when the first five guys in the lineup are all lefties, with at least two being excellent hitters. Thankfully, there really aren't any possible NL postseason teams that fit this bill.
   26. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:47 PM (#2142149)
Bannister looking sharp down at Norfolk: 3 IP, 0 hits, 0/3 bb/so. 30 pitches, 21 strikes.
   27. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:51 PM (#2142155)
jose!
   28. Sam M. Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:58 PM (#2142173)
Ouch. This is looking uglier than Paul LoDuca's divorce dossier.
   29. Banta Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:59 PM (#2142176)
Well, uh, at least Jose is the man.
   30. Rob Base Posted: August 15, 2006 at 11:59 PM (#2142178)

Ouch. This is looking uglier than Paul LoDuca's divorce dossier.


Eh, I wouldn't kick em out of bed.
   31. Sam M. Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:02 AM (#2142186)
I wasn't referring to the young ladies specifically, but to the ugliness of the case. Everyone's so damn literal these days.
   32. Rodder Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:03 AM (#2142187)
Walking Nunez to get to Wolf is incredibly stupid, no matter what happens in this at bat.
   33. Sam M. Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:04 AM (#2142189)
Well, THAT strategy worked. El Duque has nothing tonight, does he?
   34. Banta Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:04 AM (#2142190)
I remember when watching the Mets didn't make me want to rip my hair out. Didn't seem like that long ago...
   35. Sam M. Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:05 AM (#2142191)
El Duque better be ready to take one for the team tonight . . . .
   36. Rob Base Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:18 AM (#2142217)
this sucks
   37. Banta Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:23 AM (#2142226)
How come Endy doesn't play anymore? How come Ledee never plays?
   38. Rob Base Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:27 AM (#2142231)
this sucks
   39. Banta Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:27 AM (#2142233)
Well, at this point, I just want to see Reyes hit another homerun.
   40. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:28 AM (#2142235)
This reminds me of the Red Sox series. Nothing went right in that one either. Pitching sucked. Defense sucked. Offense sucked. Milledge sucked. They make every ####### play, including circus catches and throws to home.

We could be looking at a 4 game sweep.
   41. Banta Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:28 AM (#2142236)
Quick, someone perform a rain dance!
   42. Sam M. Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:29 AM (#2142238)
There is no way Crhis Woodward should EVER be playing the outfield to start a game. I don't care if you have to start Endy Chavez against a left-handed pitcher. The defensive value is much greater than the hit you take offensively.
   43. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:30 AM (#2142241)
At least Banny is spinning a gem: 6IP, 2H, 6K.
   44. Chris Dial Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:55 AM (#2142282)
At least the 2-3 starters are going okay.
   45. Chris Dial Posted: August 16, 2006 at 12:56 AM (#2142285)
And Sam is correct in #42.

In case I didn't mention it: Wooo! Trax!
   46. Sam M. Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:17 AM (#2142329)
And Kool-Aid™ is thinking: "I could have stayed in Pittsburgh to pitch in games like this . . . ."
   47. Banta Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:28 AM (#2142356)
REYES IS GOD
   48. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:28 AM (#2142359)
JOSE BERNABE REYES!!! RYAN HOWARD TERRITORY!
   49. Sam M. Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:29 AM (#2142362)
Well, I'll be damned. That was a reason to keep watching, wasn't it???
   50. Chris Dial Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:30 AM (#2142366)
Holy ####. Three bombs!!!!!
   51. Banta Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:31 AM (#2142371)
Well, Reyes is almost a lock to have 15 homeruns and 15 triples in a season.
   52. Sam M. Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:32 AM (#2142379)
Crawford did that last season (15/15) -- exactly. 15 of each.
   53. Banta Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:33 AM (#2142381)
Bah! I want Reyes to get another chance.

Actually, now that I think about it, a 20 HR 20 triple season THIS YEAR isn't that far out of the realm of possibility.
   54. AJMcCringleberry Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:35 AM (#2142386)
JOSE ####### REYES!
   55. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:36 AM (#2142388)
Speaking of Crawford, I want him. He'd be a super #2 hitter.
   56. AJMcCringleberry Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:36 AM (#2142390)
BTW, has this site been screwed up for anyone else tonight?
   57. Banta Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:39 AM (#2142397)
So, as the season stats stand at the end of the tonight, Reyes HAS to be more valuable than Wright. That's pretty incredible.
   58. Chris Dial Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:48 AM (#2142421)
The three HRs were pretty sweet though.
   59. Rob Base Posted: August 16, 2006 at 01:57 AM (#2142456)
Speaking of Crawford, I want him. He'd be a super #2 hitter.

Me too. Rays would be crazy to trade him to us.
