How will the Red Sox try to avoid from getting the cr*p kicked out of them by all the other wildcard contenders?
   2. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: July 21, 2022 at 07:32 AM (#6087571)
By poisoning their food?

Domingo German making his 1st start of the year for the Yankees in the 2nd game of today’s day-night doubleheader. Could be an interesting option in the 2nd half if he stays healthy.
   4. salvomania Posted: July 21, 2022 at 02:16 PM (#6087626)
Matt Carpenter---batting cleanup---bats in the 3rd with the bases loaded and the Yankees down 2-0 to the Astros...

EDIT: Carp lines into a DP, and Torres follows with another line out, and the Yankees come up empty.

How did Peña let that grounder get past him? In that situation you have to dive and keep the ball in the infield so the tying run doesn’t score. I’m wondering if Bregman’s lunge blocked Peña’s view, so he wasn’t in position to at least stop the ball.

I think you're wondering correctly.

Not that it wound up mattering a few minutes later. That Astros lineup is brutal, even their .150 hitters.

The Yankees are having an amazing season. Is it possible that the Astros are actually better? It's ridiculous how far ahead those 2 teams are of everyone else in the AL.
   8. Howie Menckel Posted: July 21, 2022 at 08:59 PM (#6087710)
this is the 7th game of HOU vs NYY.
NYY has led only twice - claiming a walk-off win both times they pulled ahead in any of the 7 games.

HOU could get to within 2 1/2 games of NYY with a sweep today. and yes, I do think the Astros are better.
   9. cardsfanboy Posted: July 21, 2022 at 09:13 PM (#6087712)
Any reason to think Houston is better than the Yankees? Slightly better starting rotation with Verlander being a difference maker, but the bullpens aren't really that massively difference, while the offense and depth is a bit stronger on the Yankee side, and that is dealing with stronger competition.
   10. JJ1986 Posted: July 21, 2022 at 09:38 PM (#6087714)
I think the Yankees are a better team, but the Astros are better positioned to handle starting pitching injuries (and Luis Severino's already hurt). I do think New York is more likely to add a big piece in the next 10 days.

By the way, Billie Eilish was at the Dodgers game ... appeared to have brought some homemade choc chip cookies. That is awesome.
   12. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 01:29 AM (#6087731)
Does Gabe Kapler have hair to pull out? LHR comes in with lead run at third and two outs ... and walks Bellinger to bring Mookie to the plate. Moookie homers. Dodgers 9-6 (after blowing a 5-run lead).
   13. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 01:31 AM (#6087732)
So has Mookie Wilson signed with a sportsbook yet for a series of "Mookie Bets" ads?
   14. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 01:34 AM (#6087733)
Giants have Dodgers right where they want 'em now -- Kimbrel on the mound.
   15. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 01:38 AM (#6087734)
1-out, Belt bunts against the shift for an easy single. Y'know maybe 9th inning with a 3-run lead is not the time to give the opps an easy way to reach base.
   16. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 01:41 AM (#6087735)
A pair of flyouts including a nice Mookie diving catch and the Dodgers win.
   17. cardsfanboy Posted: July 22, 2022 at 08:17 PM (#6087862)
Goldy still being Goldy, sadly Waino having a bad game as the Reds have a 5-4 lead on the Cardinals in the fifth inning.
   18. Textbook Editor Posted: July 22, 2022 at 08:41 PM (#6087864)
Welp, at least we know the Red Sox will be sellers in a couple weeks.

Xander, it’s been nice having you.
   19. Dillon Gee Escape Plan Posted: July 22, 2022 at 08:41 PM (#6087865)
Jays hit an inside the park grand slam in spite of a grand effort by Jarren Duran.
   20. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:00 PM (#6087866)
Some quality Phils' defense helped the Cubs take the lead and some quality Phils' pitching has helped push it further out to 6-1 now in the 5th and still batting.

The play in question, Cub runner on first, Morel doubled to left, Cub runner going home. Phils haven't done anything particularly wrong to this point, throw home is fine, gets cut off because Morel has motored about 1/3 of the way to third (not the greatest baserunning). Morel breaks back towards second and the Phillie fires the ball to second and ...

I don't know who that was on the Phils standing about 10 feet behind second when the throw was cut-off ... might have been the 3B in some sort of shift. Presumably not a player who has regularly contemplated "I wonder where I should be in case the throw is cut off." Anyway, 10 feet behind the bag is not the answer. They did make a break for second but couldn't corral the throw ... which was probably a decent throw assuming someone was actually covering 2B.

Now Morel is gonna easily make third but ... as the ball scoots into RCF ... there's not a Phillie in sight. The ball is eventually run down by somebody coming from the direction of 1B. Was the RF covering 1B? Was the CF the guy at 2B? Had neither of them moved since the play began? Anyway, Morel scored easily, probably had enough time he could have kept going and made it to second again.

Wisdome doubles for 7-1 ... I'm not sure many LFs could have gotten to that one but certain Scwarber wasn't.
   21. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:08 PM (#6087868)
Now Phils' ballgirl (Caitlin for those of you scoring at home) misses a scorcher down the line ... no error charged, it was pretty hard hit and she made an above-average effort on it.
   22. Dillon Gee Escape Plan Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:22 PM (#6087871)
The Red Sox have gone from a +60 run differential to 0 in the course of three weeks.
   23. salvomania Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:25 PM (#6087872)
Tough break for Reds' young C Tyler Stephenson: had an All-Star caliber start to his season interrupted for 27 games by a concussion, finally returns a week before the All Star game and hits .400/.429/.560 in 28 PA, and tonight in the first inning, a foul ball breaks his collarbone, and he's likely done for the season.

He's hitting .319/.372/.482 on the season, and he's driven in 35 runs in just 166 ab.

   24. Textbook Editor Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:26 PM (#6087873)
Bed shitting at its finest.
   25. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:27 PM (#6087874)
   26. cardsfanboy Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:28 PM (#6087875)
9-4 for the reds now as they seem to just be in love with scoring with minimal effort (7 hits, 3 walks, 9 runs)
   27. Dillon Gee Escape Plan Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:32 PM (#6087876)
The Jays could very well score 40 runs tonight.
   28. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:34 PM (#6087877)
HOU could get to within 2 1/2 games of NYY with a sweep today. and yes, I do think the Astros are better.

Could be, but not necessarily. All that really matters is October. Remember this bit of ancient history?

1988 Mets vs L.A., regular season: 10-1, 49 Runs Scored, 18 Runs Against

1988 Mets vs L.A., postseason: 3-4, 27 Runs Scored, 31 Runs Against
   29. Howie Menckel Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:36 PM (#6087878)
oh, I remember 1988 all tooooooo well.

Mets WERE better, but they didn't win the playoff series. same thing could happen here.

surprised to hear on SNY that Machado is only the second 3B to ever start for both NL and AL in the All-Star Game.

answer is not a gimme - but not totally ungettable, either.
   30. cardsfanboy Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:38 PM (#6087879)

What the hell is going on in that game? 25-3?

I cannot even think of a time when I saw a major league team score over 20 runs. (I'm sure it's happened recently, I'm thinking Braves or Rangers or Cubs for some reason)
   31. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:40 PM (#6087880)
JFC, over the last 22.5 innings, the Red Sox have been outscored by 52 to 6. If that isn't a record, I almost don't want to know what is.
   32. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:43 PM (#6087882)

At some point in the 21st century, the Indians beat the Yankees by 22 to 0, and the Rangers beat the Orioles by something like 30 to 3.

30-3 is correct. Pretty sure that's the only time a team's scored 30 runs in my lifetime (born in 1991). Braves came close in 2020, beating the Marlins 29-9 (don't remember that one). Most I've ever seen the Sox score was 25 against the Marlins in 2003.

   34. Hombre Brotani Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:50 PM (#6087884)
Shohei Ohtani over his last six games:
39.2 IP, 2 ER, 11 BB, 58 K, 0 homers, 0.45 ERA

Shohei tonight:
5 IP, 1 hit 0 R, 0 BB, 9 Ks
   35. Dillon Gee Escape Plan Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:52 PM (#6087885)

Crappy defense and crappy pitching.
   36. The Yankee Clapper Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:55 PM (#6087886)
Just catching up after an earlier event, but if I heard it correctly, the Blue Jays set a franchise record for the most runs scored in a game by the 5th inning tonight. Remarkable.
   37. cardsfanboy Posted: July 22, 2022 at 09:58 PM (#6087887)

I did a quick google and came up with this

Rangers in 2007 with 30 runs, Braves with 29 in 2020, Royals with 26 in 2004, Rangers 26 in 1996, Cubs 26 1995, Reds Sox with 25 in 2003... (so my initial thought about the three teams who have done this recently, missed the Royals and Red Sox but got the other three correctly)

   38. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: July 22, 2022 at 10:03 PM (#6087888)
So far the Red Sox have now allowed 54 runs in 3 games (with 3 innings to go), and have to give up only 3 more runs to break the all time record of 56 set by the 1950 Browns. But when the Browns set that mark by surrendering 20, 29 and 7 games in a 3 game series in Fenway, they consoled themselves by winning the last game by 12 to 7. It was that kind of a year.
   39. Hombre Brotani Posted: July 22, 2022 at 10:21 PM (#6087890)
Ohtani allows a homer for the first time in 7 games. Angels about to drop another one.
   40. Hombre Brotani Posted: July 22, 2022 at 10:33 PM (#6087892)
I love baseball, but this Angels team has beaten the love out of me. I only post omnichatters out of obligation.
   41. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: July 22, 2022 at 10:37 PM (#6087893)
Tonight Jarren Duran made one of the most hilariously bad defensive plays I've ever seen. Totally lost a flyball to center, had it land 30 feet over his head, and then steadfastly refused to go pick it up, allowing an inside the park grand slam. That's a play that should land him back in the minors.
   42. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 10:52 PM (#6087895)
Yolmer Sanchez to the mound to see if he can hold the Jays under 30. It is not looking good so far.
   43. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 10:55 PM (#6087896)
CFB ... the Cubs did beat the Pirates 21-0 earlier this year.

I've seen 20+ at least a few times on TV, pretty sure I've never seen it in person outside the softball field.

An unusual pitching line, especially for this day and age: Ort (that name seems appropriate) with 0.2 IP, 7 H, 1 BB, 1 K, 8 R, 0 HR. Kind of a BBTF Golden Age of Baseball moment.
   44. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 10:56 PM (#6087897)
Sanchez gets it done! After surrendering a run, he gets out of a 2 men on, 1 out jam.
   45. cardsfanboy Posted: July 22, 2022 at 10:59 PM (#6087898)
CFB ... the Cubs did beat the Pirates 21-0 earlier this year.


It really does seem like the high scoring teams are the same..
   46. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 11:00 PM (#6087899)
With 2 walks and 0 hits, Cubs part-time 1B Aflonso Rivas gets his season line to 236/316/317. Who's the last 1B (with reasonable PA) to have a OBP>SLG?

Cubs piled on in the 8th and 9th to win 15-2.
   47. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: July 22, 2022 at 11:02 PM (#6087900)

And the Pirates once beat the Cubs by 22 to 0, the game in which Rennie Stennett went 7 for 7.

I doubt he was the most recent one, but in his career (1779 PA), Mike Squires had a .321 OBP and a .318 SLP.
   50. Misirlou cut his hair and moved to Rome Posted: July 22, 2022 at 11:23 PM (#6087904)
Peter Rose, Wes Parker. Going back a lot.
   51. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 11:26 PM (#6087905)
It really does seem like the high scoring teams are the same..

In fairness, back in 75, the Pirates did beat the Cubs 22-0. It may not be so much the same "teams" as the same parks. The two highest scoring games in history (unless there's been one since) were at Wrigley, both Cubs-Phils; 26-23 Cubs in 1922 and 23-22 Phils in 1979. Granted not in Wrigley and not yet even the Cubs, the White Stockings apparently hold the all-time one-team scoring record with a 36-7 win in 1897. The Cubs beat the Cards 23-13 at Wrigley in 1954. Another article points out Cub Wrigley losses 17-15 to the Expos and 18-16 to the Phils (again!).

The Rangers have been another popular big scorer though I didn't check how many were in Texas. I assume there are a number or crazy ones in Coors.
   52. Misirlou cut his hair and moved to Rome Posted: July 22, 2022 at 11:26 PM (#6087906)
Rose became a full time 1B, with a few games in the OF, in 1979. From then until he retired, he had 4400 PA with a .365 OBP and .349 SLP.
   53. Misirlou cut his hair and moved to Rome Posted: July 22, 2022 at 11:29 PM (#6087908)
and 18-16 to the Phils (again!).


That was Schmidt's 4 HR game.
   54. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 11:33 PM (#6087909)
In case you were wondering, the Red Sox did not stage the greatest comeback in sports history. Interestingly, the Jays only out-HR'd the Sox 5-4. 29 hits -- that's a lot.
   55. Misirlou cut his hair and moved to Rome Posted: July 22, 2022 at 11:35 PM (#6087910)
Looking at the box score on BBREF, the starting pitchers were Steve Carlton and Rick Reuschel. Both starters allowed 7 runs, but Carlton was knocked out in the 2nd inning, and Reuschel lasted a full 7, allowing 14 hits!
   56. Walt Davis Posted: July 22, 2022 at 11:46 PM (#6087914)
So X's destination ... The only (non-ALE) contenders that have a need at SS are the Phils (Didi) and Giants (injured Crawford). So he likely will need to move to 3B or 2B. Even that seems to add just Sea (2B), Mets and Atl (Albies hurt); probably the Brewers too unless they have more faith in Jace Peterson than I do. And never count out the Dodgers -- J Turner has gotten back up over 100 OPS+ but the Dodgers might like the upgrade and maybe could convince the Red Sox to take 2 months of Turner in the return package to paper over the cracks. I can imagine the Phils or Giants might make X a serious offer to stick around.
   57. Misirlou cut his hair and moved to Rome Posted: July 22, 2022 at 11:52 PM (#6087916)
The starters in the 23-22 game were Randy Lerch and Dennis Lamp. Both retired exactly one batter, while allowing a combined 11 runs. That has to be a record for futility by both starters.

4 of the 5 Cub relievers that day had 30 save seasons in their future.
   58. The Yankee Clapper Posted: July 23, 2022 at 12:03 AM (#6087922)
Yankees reliever Michael King suddenly left tonight’s game, and it’s now reported that he fractured his elbow, and is out for the season. That one hurts.
   59. Walt Davis Posted: July 23, 2022 at 12:22 AM (#6087928)
Yermin Mercedes sighting. He's been on the Giants for about 3 weeks it seems. Last seen having a torrid start with the 2021 White Sox then sucking so bad he got sent down, he's hit OK so far and nearly snuck one inside the foul pole a few minutes ago. Along with a David Price sighting -- he's got 22 innings this year so hardly in hiding but I can't remembber the last time I saw him on the mound.

Also back in the majors is The Great Baddoo. Alas, picking up where he left off, 2-18 since his return.
   60. The Yankee Clapper Posted: July 23, 2022 at 12:28 AM (#6087929)
In news that may affect . . . the postgame spread, the Mets have acquired Pirates DH Daniel Vogelbach for reliever Colin Holderman.

EDIT: I now see that this transaction was deemed worthy of its own thread.
   61. Tom Nawrocki Posted: July 23, 2022 at 12:39 AM (#6087932)
The starters in the 23-22 game were Randy Lerch and Dennis Lamp. Both retired exactly one batter, while allowing a combined 11 runs.


My favorite fact about that game is that a relief pitcher hit a triple in the first inning.

With 2 walks and 0 hits, Cubs part-time 1B Aflonso Rivas gets his season line to 236/316/317. Who's the last 1B (with reasonable PA) to have a OBP>SLG?


Daric Barton hit .216/.323/.284 in 600 PA from 2011-14. Barton had a career .356 OBP and .365 SLG% though.

Dave Magadan was mostly a 3rd baseman but he did play 1st in 1991 when he hit .258/.378/.342 (517 PA).
   63. Dillon Gee Escape Plan Posted: July 23, 2022 at 10:43 AM (#6087950)
Carlos Santana had a higher OBP than SLG until he got traded to Seattle (.349/.341). He's now at .351/.364.
   64. Tom Nawrocki Posted: July 23, 2022 at 02:03 PM (#6087968)
This is my first time seeing Cleveland's Triston McKenzie, who looks like a high school kid who had to borrow his big brother's baseball pants. He's listed at 6'5, 165, and I believe it.
   65. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: July 23, 2022 at 02:11 PM (#6087969)
I’m not sure I buy the 165. More like 150.
   66. Howie Menckel Posted: July 23, 2022 at 02:37 PM (#6087970)
Dave Magadan was mostly a 3rd baseman

hmm. 559 Games Started at 3B, 450 at 1B.
   67. Walt Davis Posted: July 23, 2022 at 05:08 PM (#6087989)
Jeepers ... Yordan Alvarez has a 62% hard-hit rate on the year.
   68. The Duke Posted: July 23, 2022 at 05:24 PM (#6087991)
Julio Rodriguez hit 80 HRs in HR derby and now out indefinitely with a wrist issue. Go figure
   69. Walt Davis Posted: July 23, 2022 at 05:33 PM (#6087992)
When a batter strikes out while the defense is shifted, does the C throw the ball to whoever's standing at SS?
   70. Walt Davis Posted: July 23, 2022 at 05:34 PM (#6087993)
Verlander cruising through 5 -- 2 hits, 0 runs, 6 K, 0 BB, 58 pitches. Astros 2-0 over Ms.
   71. Walt Davis Posted: July 23, 2022 at 06:42 PM (#6087998)
Before ducking out to the Cubs game, Santana took Verlander deep to make it 2-1. According to the graphic, that's Santana's 9th off Verlander, the most of anybody. Given how long Verlander has pitched and the HR-happy era, that seems a low total for most ever. I suppose not a huge amount of power in the ALC and not many would have followed him to the ALW. Or maybe it's not as unusual as I think.
   72. The Yankee Clapper Posted: July 23, 2022 at 07:40 PM (#6088008)
Matt Carpenter continues to build his late-starting, suitably pinstriped Hall of Fame case, with his 14th HR. Sure he’d have to be remarkably durable, but is that really more improbable than what he’s already done as a Yankee?

Carpenter now at .333/.453/.874, for a 1.327 OPS.

Along with Judge’s earlier RBI double, that HR puts the Yankees up 2-0 in Baltimore.
   73. cardsfanboy Posted: July 23, 2022 at 07:58 PM (#6088013)
Goldy still being Goldy, if he keeps this up, it's going to be hard to even consider anyone else for MVP in the NL. (with apologies to Alcantara)

Goldy just racked up his 1000 and 1001 RBIs for his career. Last night he hit his 300 HR.

Goldy is 296th on the career RBI list tied with Freddie Freeman. The active players above him are Pujols, Cabrera, cano, Cruz, Longoria, Votto, Molina and Upton. Behind Freeman and Goldy are Stanton and Arenado.
   75. The Duke Posted: July 23, 2022 at 08:19 PM (#6088019)
On the active HR leaders it's Pujols, Cabrera, Cruz, Stanton, Votto, cano, trout, Longoria, Upton, goldy.

301 last night, 302 tonight.

More ridiculous Carpenter numbers:

Home: 371/522/1143 (not a typo) ... not that the road numbers are shabby.

vs LHP: 400/500/1085 ... 10 for 25 with 2 doubles, 5 HR and 5 BB.

Men on: 415/529/1146
2outs, RISP: 600/636/1900
Late & close: 083/353/333

Judge adds a bloop RBI-single to his 2 doubles (and SB) tonight. Nice, although the Baltimore crowd wants to see a HR. 3-0.

Carpenter did this for half a year in 2018 and almost won an MVP. On either side of that, he was absolutely terrible. He is the ultimate hot hand player.

In April and September of that year he had an OPS of about ,
.575.

In May- August, he was hitting like he is now. In fact august of 2018 he was being touted as an MVP. He never played well again. Just stopped hitting until now.

He could always take a walk though

In this 10th inning, Alec Bohm is showing once and for all that he can’t play 3B. Bad throw home on a fielders choice, lets a ball past him for a 2B, then commits a error. Cubs with 5 runs in with one out in the 10th.
If he doesn’t develop his power stroke, he’ll go down as another Phillies 2010s first round draft bust.
   81. Walt Davis Posted: July 23, 2022 at 09:48 PM (#6088032)
He was out of position on the steal of 3rd too. [EDIT: Or at least took his sweet time getting to the bag.]

Cardinals about to road trip to Tor so we will get another long list of players not vaccinated. Cardinals have started calling up players to taxi squad to fill in. Wonder if anyone can top the Royals
   84. cardsfanboy Posted: July 23, 2022 at 10:12 PM (#6088035)
I'm trying to think who wouldn't be vaccinated for the Cardinals, Waino just pitched so he isn't an option, Yadier is still rehabbing, and they have been talking about bringing Bader up for the trip, so I'm assuming he's fine, Goldy and Arenado aren't stupid so they are obviously vaccinated. So I have no clue who are the idiots on the Cardinals that aren't vaccinated.
   85. The Duke Posted: July 23, 2022 at 10:16 PM (#6088036)
O'Neill is from Canada - he is vaccinated. Bader reinjured his foot today and got yanked from
Rehab. Molina is still on IL. Waino is vaccinated.

Rumor has it that the cardinals have added Spanenburg, Gomez and Capel to taxi squad so it seems like we have at least three unvaxxed.

Yet their manager pulls him for the platoon advantage(?) in a close game... I just do not get the Yankees, but heck they have the best record in baseball so I guess it doesn't matter.

in 1969, the Mets were not terrible for the first time in franchise history, and the Mets traded for a needed bat in Donn Clendenon. they won the pennant.

in 2015, the Mets decided to go for it and acquired Yoenis Cespedes. yada yada yada, the Mets win the pennant.

in 2022, the Mets after 90+ games clearly are running on fumes as the Braves prepare to pass them. an infusion of new blood is badly needed - look at the Braves since they recalled 21-year-old CF phenom Michael Harris two months ago.

so the Mets go back to the Pirates well - but this time it's for Daniel freaking Vogelbach and Michael focking Perez.

color me unimpressed so far, Mr. Cohen.

I edited that comment in case someone sees your comment, after I realized what I typed was massively wrong. I didn't know about the Bader injury though.

Maybe but the Cardinals have been living off of the taxi squad all season long(mostly on the pitching side) but considering the previous manager, (not Shildt, but Matheny) there is a possibility that there are still idiots on the team, just not sure if they are actual players or peripheral players. I guess Gorman is young enough to be an idiot which might explain Spaneburg.

Nice, although the Baltimore crowd wants to see a HR. 3-0.


Such a shame, the O's fans just had to settle for seeing a 6-3 win for their guys.

When was that? Tonight, Gallo replaced Carpenter in RF for defense, after he batted in the 7th.

Did you watch the game? The Orioles fans were a distinct minority at Camden Yards tonight.

Note I was more or less just joking as I wasn't watching the game. Just noting that the Yankees are behind and took out their best bat. (and by behind, meaning when I made the comment, not when it actually happened)
   93. shoelesjoe Posted: July 23, 2022 at 11:47 PM (#6088048)
Gerrit Cole now 1-2 with a 4.29 ERA against the Orioles this year. 8-1 and 2.84 against everybody else. Orioles are 8 games below .500 when Rutschman isn't in the lineup, and 8 games above it when he is. Some of that is just scheduling happenstance, but not all of it. Very strange how one guy can change the identity of a team so completely.

No they weren't. Just because Yankee fans are louder and more obnoxious than any other fans in the world doesn't make them more numerous.

If Vogelbach and Perez are the Mets' big moves then by all means burn Cohen in effigy. But y'know, another week until the deadline. Given he traded for and extended Lindor, signed Marte and Canha, acquired Carrasco and Bassitt and signed Scherzer ... a total of about 12 WAR, 6 WAA so far ... seems Cohen's wallet has contributed quite a bit.
   97. The Duke Posted: July 24, 2022 at 12:11 PM (#6088074)
Goldy, Arenado and romine are out due to vax status. Oviedo lost his passport!!!
   98. cardsfanboy Posted: July 24, 2022 at 12:34 PM (#6088076)
No Goldy or Arenado... ####### idiots. I have to re-evaluate my opinion on them apparently.

With the upcoming sweep the Cardinals are about to experience in Toronto, it's a good thing the Cubs are beating up on the Phillies for us.
