HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!

I don't know if I'll get to say this again so: CUBS ARE IN FIRST PLACE

With no Trout or Ohtani in the lineup, it's not a lot of fun watching the Angels. Or rather, even less fun than usual.

Strike-throwing Robbie Ray has been a pleasant surprise this season.

Not that this is news to anybody but ...

MLB Quality Start %

2015 50%
2016 47
2017 44
2018 41
2019 37
2020 29
2021 35

That will mostly be due to the drop in 6-inning starts. For 2020 of course there were extended rosters, trying to keep folks healthy, abbreviated 2nd "spring" training, etc. I assume April tends to have the lowest rate so maybe the 2021 rate will pick up a bit, end up at 2019 ... not counting on it though.

Entering the 10th inning against the Rays....

HOW WILL THE YANKEES BLOW THIS ONE??????
   7. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: June 01, 2021 at 10:41 PM (#6021918)
10th inning, winning run on third, one out.

Urshela: Strikes out.

Torres: Walks on a full count after missing two pitches by a foot.

Sanchez: Strikes out on a ball in the dirt.

The worst thing about all this is that it's so totally predictable. Their 10 strikeouts tonight is actually a bit better than their average. Their pitching staff has an ERA+ of 126, but their offense is like 1968.

FRAZIER! OF ALL PEOPLE! ENDS IT WITH A WALKOFF HOMER!

Pass the smelling salts.

Funny factoid: Miguel Cabrera had a flashback moment with a two-out, bases-loaded double that drove in three. That broke a tie for 22nd on the all-time doubles list with - I kid you not - Brewer legend Robin Yount. What were the chances he'd pass Yount in Milwaukee?!

Red Sox now playing good teams. Red Sox predictably getting beat again.

their offense is like 1968.

Egads! While you exaggerate it is true that the Yanks have now scored fewer runs than the O's and M's and only 3 more than the Tigers.

EDiaz allows a single, RF error, "productive groundout," and single to allow the sadack DBacks to tie it at 4-4 in the 9th after they trailed 4-0 earlier.

Mets immediately plate a run in top 10 per middle school softball rules and.....
   13. Howie Menckel Posted: June 02, 2021 at 01:15 AM (#6021965)
the Mets TV channel impudently interviewed Johan Santana during the game tonight on the 9th anniversary of his 1-hitter*, mistakenly credited as the lone no-hitter in Mets history.

the baseball gods were NOT amused.

Mets lead, 5-4, bottom 10, 1st and 2nd, 2 outs.

AZ hits a liner down the line for a 2-run, game-winning hit.

or was it? one replay seems to hint at a speck of chalk, the other does not.

after a review, the umps chose the one that said the Mets lose.

funny how life works out like that

Mets and Diamondbacks - wasn't that the matchup where Cookie Rojas went nuts over a fair/foul call down the line?
