Mike Trout is 0 for his last 13, with 11 Ks. Yikes.
   2. Howie Menckel Posted: July 05, 2022 at 08:32 PM (#6085681)
kind of an April-September matchuo in Cincy as Reds phenom Nick Lodolo and future HOFer Max Scherzer match scoreless innings.

Scherzer 3 IP, 1 H, 5 K - it's like he never left

Kyle Schwarber's second homer of the game, 25th of the season, puts him on pace for 50 this season. That would be the most by a #Phillies hitter since Ryan Howard hit 58 in 2006.

YES Network with a decent trivia question tonight: name 7 players who have hit 100+ HR with Yankees and 150+ HR with another single MLB team.

Granderson, Giambi, Soriano, Winfield?
   5. Howie Menckel Posted: July 05, 2022 at 09:23 PM (#6085686)
correct answers so far:
Giambi
Soriano (the only one the booth did not get)
Winfield
A-Rod
Stanton (who just hit his 100th for NYY)
Reggie

I guessed on this and then looked it up. Got 5 right. One of them other 2 I never would have come up with if you gave me all of the available guesses.
   7. NaOH Posted: July 05, 2022 at 09:27 PM (#6085688)
A-Rod
Giancarlo
   8. Lonnie Smith for president Posted: July 05, 2022 at 09:30 PM (#6085689)
Reggie?
   9. Howie Menckel Posted: July 05, 2022 at 09:32 PM (#6085690)
six correct answers here now, one to go

I liked the question because it's neither ridiculously easy nor ridiculously hard.
   10. JJ1986 Posted: July 05, 2022 at 09:33 PM (#6085691)
My incorrect guesses were Cano (who barely homered as a Mariner) and Sheffield (who didn't meet either of the criteria).
   11. NaOH Posted: July 05, 2022 at 09:38 PM (#6085692)
Teixeira?

The anti-Matsui clause.
   12. Howie Menckel Posted: July 05, 2022 at 09:41 PM (#6085693)
Tex indeed is the last one !

in other news, Mad Max leaves after 6 IP of 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 11 K - that'll play !
   13. Mike A Posted: July 05, 2022 at 10:53 PM (#6085696)
Run differential in the NL East:

Mets +59
Braves +58
Phillies +56

Mets still the division favorite with their pitchers coming back, but it would fun if this got interesting down the stretch.
   14. Walt Davis Posted: July 05, 2022 at 10:53 PM (#6085697)
Nettles?

EDiT: Nope, not even close
   15. Walt Davis Posted: July 05, 2022 at 10:59 PM (#6085698)
Huh, Gamble only made it to 200 (exactly) career HR.

I have so far fanned on Chili Davis (why did I think he was with the Yanks for 4-5 years?) and Oscar. Don Baylor at least wasn't a terrible guess (141 Angels, 71 Yanks).

EDIT: O'Neill missed it by just 4 Reds HRs.
EDIT2: Hideki Matsui. :-)
EDIT3: Sorry, missed Tex being certified, thought he was wrong. And there was already a Matsui comment. A six pack of brand, new, rebranded once again Coke Zero Sugar to Primate HQ and I'll let them sort out who gets what.
   16. Walt Davis Posted: July 05, 2022 at 11:20 PM (#6085699)
I didn't check everybody but I think the only Cub to have done this is Dawson who pushed it to >150 with the Cubs and >200 with the Expos. Schwarber and Bryant have decent shots at getting there. Soriano (obviously) and Derrek Lee both did 150+ with the Cubs and 100+ elsewhere.
   17. Howie Menckel Posted: July 05, 2022 at 11:28 PM (#6085700)
all of these comments and good guesses - so many sluggers who spent multiple years with NYY as well as elsewhere - reinforce what made it such a good trivia question.

and I am not that much of a trivia fan.

but I'll give a good, challenging but manageable question its due.

BITD we had a trivia fanatic who got the answer right too many dozens of weeks in a row.
I came up with a couple that stumped him (and this is WAY before the innerwebs existed), and wow did he mewl to my bosses.

maybe he felt humiliated or something, which is weird because - really, you think most people notice if your name got listed in the short or long tiny box of newsprint listing correct answers once a week?

............

(and there was much rejoicing in many BBTF precincts)

Hansel Robles has been designated for assignment. Red Sox needed a spot on the roster for Bello’s activation

Circling back: Whatever the reason NY and Pittsburg didn't play on the Fourth, it was a sellout tonight at PNC. Gotta think beer sales would have been better yesterday.
   19. Tom Nawrocki Posted: July 06, 2022 at 12:00 AM (#6085702)

Bryant just hit his first for the Rockies. Let's hope there are still hundreds left in that bat.

the back-end re Yankees July 4 was they can't have to play on a 21st consecutive day.
a Primate also noted that the June sked could have been reworked to allow for July 4 fun.

Pirates are now 6-1 against LAD and NYY this year.
   21. The Honorable Ardo Posted: July 06, 2022 at 01:22 AM (#6085710)
Dave Winfield's profile popped up on the big board at tonight's Tigers game after Miguel Cabrera tied him for 18th place on the all-time list with 1,833 RBI.

Cabrera has reworked his approach this year; he has given up on hitting for power (only seven doubles and three homers), but he's batting .307 after a 3-for-3 showing tonight. He's always used the whole field, but this season he seems to prioritize going the other way like Wade Boggs 2.0.

If he keeps it up and doesn't get injured - always a big if - he'll most likely leap to 13th place, ahead of Mel Ott and right behind Willie Mays, at the end of 2022.

100+ HR with Yankees and 150+ HR with another MLB team.

Cardinals have a few:
Johnny Mize (Giants),
Albert Pujols (Angels),
Matt Holliday (Rockies),
Mark McGwire (A's),
Scott Rolen (Phillies)

with Matt Carpenter (Yankees) destined to join that group in about 3 years.

   23. JJ1986 Posted: July 06, 2022 at 11:14 AM (#6085725)
I believe the Mets have just Piazza and Delgado.
   24. chisoxcollector Posted: July 06, 2022 at 11:40 AM (#6085730)
Off the top of my head, the three guys below did this for the Sox.

Jim Thome (Indians)
Carlton Fisk (Red Sox)
Adam Dunn (Reds)
