HOW WILL THE ANGELS WIN TODAY?!

Jordan Montgomery out for the season needing TJ surgery. Yankees REALLY need a pitcher now, likely two.

   5. Blastin Posted: June 05, 2018 at 05:45 PM (#5686471)
They are not going to find two good starting pitchers. But I could see a starter and reliever(s), like last year.

Also, I am not going to panic about this team that I enjoy.

I agree, since at this point Severino's their only reliable starter. Tanaka and Gray are way too inconsistent and Sabathia always seems two batters away from a complete meltdown. I actually like Germán's long range prospects better than any of those last named three, but maybe that's only because his grass is greener.

The only good news here is that Montgomery's still young enough to make a full recovery, but Christ, the Yankees sure didn't need this. I think the price for Hamels just went up. Starting pitching is why I picked the Red Sox to win the division, and this sure doesn't change my opinion.

#Astros fifth-round pick Cody Deason: "I was a Dodgers fan and, as of about three hours ago, I am an Astros fan. That was heartbreaking to see last year. But now I look back on it and say 'Wow, this is the greatest thing that's ever happened.'"
   10. Baldrick Posted: June 05, 2018 at 06:28 PM (#5686504)

The Yankees are 38-18 with a team ERA+ of 116.
   11. You Know Nothing JT Snow (YR) Posted: June 05, 2018 at 06:34 PM (#5686510)
I do think Grey and Tanaka will be better going forward but Sabathia has been pitching with smoke and mirrors all season and that was never going to last. The farm system is thin on starters with Chance Adams having pitched his way out of an obvious callup and Justus Sheffield having barely gotten his feet wet at AAA. Adam Warren to the rotation?
   12. cardsfanboy Posted: June 05, 2018 at 07:04 PM (#5686525)
Molina and Carlos Martinez in the starting lineup for the Cardinals today. (Cardinals drafted the first player born in the 00's with their first overall pick.... he was born on a day in which The Cubs were losing to the Brewers 8-3 with two outs in the ninth and managed to rally for a win thanks to two errors and one hit..... the next day Glenallen Hill hit a ball over Waveland---and I'm sure many around here remember both of those)
   13. Howie Menckel Posted: June 05, 2018 at 07:04 PM (#5686526)
so DE added Vegas-style sports betting to their racino offerings this afternoon.
first bet was the Governor - $10 on the Phillies over the Cubs tonight (Eflin vs Hendricks).
second bet was a loudmouth from Long Island who put $500 down on the Pirates.

longest I saw the line got in the first 90 minutes was about 3 people for the two tellers on hand. some people just walked up and bet.

in other news, nobody lives in Delaware.
   14. rconn23 Posted: June 05, 2018 at 07:58 PM (#5686551)
I'm not worried about CC being a perfectly cromulent starter as far as his performance. Injury is always the caveat. He was due for a few stinkers since he was so great in April. They'll trade for a starter, the question is how they fill the other spot. Sheffield's control needs work, and Adams has been inconsistent.

In other news, it would be nice if they could hit Estrada tonight since, you know, every other team has.
   15. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:15 PM (#5686563)
Cubs pitchers: I will personally offer $100 cash to anyone who quick-pitches Odubel Herrera during this series.

Joc Pederson owns Joe Musgrove.

Alex Cobb, who gives up 14 hits per inning, is no-hitting the Mets.
   18. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:23 PM (#5686569)
The dust-up between the Yankees & ESPN over flexing them into Sunday Night Baseball on July 8, when they had to travel to Baltimore for a Monday doubleheader, has been resolved. Yankees play an afternoon game as originally scheduled; ESPN goes with Dodgers - Angels.
   19. perros Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:26 PM (#5686570)
If the Dodgers win tonight, they'll be an even 30-30 after a 14-26 start. The Giants are 30-30 going into tonight's game with Arizona, Bumgarner taking the hill.
   20. cardsfanboy Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:26 PM (#5686571)
dumbass baserunning by Matt Carpenter there.

martinez with a 4-pitch walk, again. did he have all those tattoos earlier this year?
   23. perros Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:32 PM (#5686576)
I'm a big fan of Corey Dickerson. Nice sliding catxh in foul territory in the top of the second, nice little flare to left in the bottom half.

One of the few -- maybe the only -- choking up on the bat.
   24. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:33 PM (#5686578)
Great, first Gardner gets thrown out trying to steal with no outs and a 2-0 count on Stanton, then Stanton swings at a 3-0 count and hits a lazy fly to right, then Bird strikes out. All against a pitcher with a 5.15 ERA.

And now CC gives up the inevitable gopher ball, which is probably all the runs Toronto will need.
   27. phredbird Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:36 PM (#5686581)
ok, he got a little help on the double play, now martinez is trying to make it interesting again.

looking really shaky out there.

3 walks in the inning, pitcher coming up ...

fingers crossed.
   28. cardsfanboy Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:38 PM (#5686582)
Carlos not sharp today at all. If he makes it five innings it will be a surprise.
   29. phredbird Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:40 PM (#5686583)
argh, 27-pitch inning, but no runs allowed.

There's time to see if the current rotation improves. I wouldn't dismiss Tanaka, and Gray may be fixable, too. There are trade possibilities, but I'm wary of overpaying for another middling pitcher.

6 innings pitched (so far), 2 hits, 1 run ... ERMAGHAH THE SKY IS FALLING!!!

This one's on the bats ...
   32. rconn23 Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:45 PM (#5686587)
CC deserved a better fate. He pitched really well. Some truly awful at bats against Estrada. I know Judge struggled, but he has really hit Estrada well. Not sure I would have sat him tonight.
   33. cardsfanboy Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:48 PM (#5686588)
Welcome back Yadier.... and Ozuna ignores the stop sign from Oquendo to score.
   34. the Centaur Nipple Paradox (CoB). Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:48 PM (#5686589)
Bombers 0-15 in their last attempts with RISP ... ugh.
   35. phredbird Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:48 PM (#5686590)
yadi's back. ignoring the lingering pain in his groin, he smacks a run-scoring single.
   36. phredbird Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:49 PM (#5686591)
ozuna ran through a stop sign on that play, and the throw was cut off, but i wonder if he would have been cut down. it didn't look like a great jump or anything.
   37. the Centaur Nipple Paradox (CoB). Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:50 PM (#5686592)

That was about the slowest I've seen Molina run in years. He's not fast, but he looks like he gained about 20 pounds over the past month.
   42. perros Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:53 PM (#5686598)

In an ordinary year I'd agree with you, but two wild card games in two years are two too many AFAIC, and the Red Sox just keep winning and winning.
   44. phredbird Posted: June 05, 2018 at 08:54 PM (#5686600)
wong smacks a double down the line with two out, and i thought great! another run scores with the runner going on contact, but i forgot ... it's molina, running very gingerly.

What a stinker tonight. This is about as bad as I've seen Hendricks look. He's just uncomfortable out there and has no idea where the ball is going.

I don't often watch commercials, nor do I have pizza delivered, but Dominos is having these things called hotspots, where they'll deliver to park benches and other select spots... Sounds like a decent marketing gimmick to me. I mean it's still dominos, but still seems like something that makes sense. A park with pizza delivered for a kids birthday party absolutely makes sense.

I'm not holding it against him, obviously that injury was tremendously bad. I mean seriously bad, like being shot by a gun bad. So he can do whatever he wants, but he definitely looks like Yadier circa 2006 and not Yadier circa 2015.
   55. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 05, 2018 at 09:00 PM (#5686611)
That was about the slowest I've seen Molina run in years.

If your balls were being held together by a couple of staples, you'd probably slow down a bit, too. Although I've never seen a precise description of Molina's surgery, I imagine it was something like that, or worse.

I've had a mancrush on Andujar ever since that one game last year in Chicago where he crushed the ball every time and then went on the DL the next day. Brandon Drury? Who's he?

oh dear. 5 walks, 51 pitches tonight for carlos ... clock's ticking, bro.

now he gets a gift double play, but the run scores cuz bases were loaded.

what a tight rope walk ...

oh ffs.

ball hit right back to martinez, he knocks it down, then casuals it to first so slowly that the runner is safe and the guy on 3rd scores ... jeez.
   61. cardsfanboy Posted: June 05, 2018 at 09:05 PM (#5686617)
damnit, Carlos did what you should do there, don't panic, make the play, but didn't really properly respect the speed of the batter.

CC was great tonight. I'm fine letting him pitch 7. He gave up a couple dingers, but one was kind of a cheapie.
   64. cardsfanboy Posted: June 05, 2018 at 09:09 PM (#5686620)
Carlos definitely showing rust, still when he needs to bear down, he's been getting the pitches he needs, but sadly has been needing to bear down a lot because of his walks.

I'm still a believer in Hicks. The Yanks have too many good position players, which is a nice problem to have. A couple of those are going to turn into a new pitcher. But man, I really like Frazier and hope he's not the one to go.

Too bad they probably can't just pawn off Drury and Walker, or maybe Tyler Austin. Definitely don't want to give up Frazier.

Given the way he's been playing at AAA Scranton, Frazier would probably bring quite a return, but I'm haunted by the prospect of Jose's Prophecy - that he'll be the Greatest of the Baby Bombers - coming true. Besides, the Yanks will need him in LF next year with Gardner's contract up - although maybe they try to work out something for him in a reduced role, if they can move Ellsbury.

Max Scherzer is the first to 10 wins. The Nats ace moved to 10-1 with a dominant outing in Washington's 4-2 win over the Rays. Scherzer fanned 13, walked none, and posted the second immaculate inning of his career. He's believed to be just the fifth hurler ever with multiple immaculate innings. The other four are all Hall of Famers: Lefty Grove, Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan, and Randy Johnson.

Pretty good company.

Martinez, professional hitter(even FS1 said it)

Now it's bases loaded no outs for Pham.... In play run...please don't be another freaking double play.

Ozuna drives in Martinez..... Nothing but singles and walks for the Cardinals this inning, but have men on second and third with just one out and scored two runs.

jimminy christmas... Pham picked off of third...

I was about to post that with Yadier up to bat and men on second and third that it was good odds the Cardinals were going to score there....

Now Yadier is injured... he will probably play through it, but his hand is sore, and for some reason Ozuna and Rojas are jawing....

Ehh... Pham gets picked off a freaking lot, that is definitely not one of his positive skills. He makes mistakes by over estimating his ability or underestimating the ability of major league pitchers. But agree he just hasn't looked good as a player for about a week now.

Good news for the Yanks: Barring unforeseen circumstances, they won't have to face Scherzer in their upcoming games. He's due to pitch next on Sunday, then Friday and the following Wednesday, while the Yanks play the Nats next Tuesday and Wednesday, and then the following Monday.
