If Albert has an obvious landing place we should know by Sunday. I’m going to bet on Cincinnati, Detroit or Kansas City. The obvious choice would be for the Boston Braves to sign him.

icymi from last night's Chatter:

Lindor just screwed his own pooch.

after the obvious hostility between he and McNeil in this game - and the numerous Mets clambering behind him from the dugout to the clubhouse (and McNeil) - this guy has the stones, with a straight face, to claim that oh, it was just a spirited debate between the two about whether a large animal in the clubhouse was a raccoon or a "New York rat."

the NYC beat writers - yeah, they didn't buy it. but Lindor stuck to this ridiculous story - which postgame analyst Todd Zeile described as "mockery" of the beat guys. he also called it "complete nonsense" and "disingenuous."

Zeile said he appreciates a desire to try to downplay such incidents - but he played in NY, and he knows how this will go. after a series of challenges, Lindor was asked if he and McNeil really were "good."

Lindor replied that, hey, he could bring Jeff in and kiss on the cheek if they really wanted.
a beat guy replied, "ok, let's do that."

you're not in Cleveland anymore, kid - as you're about to learn.

Mets manager Luis Rojas says he knows nothing about a rat-raccoon situation. He is not playing into this story one bit. Rojas says he was satisfied that whatever happened between Lindor and McNeil was over and done with by the time he got down the dugout steps.

one boost for Lindor: McNeil backed up the bull sh it story, so it may not be SO bad between them, at least
   4. The Mighty Quintana Posted: May 08, 2021 at 12:07 PM (#6017764)
The main difference between a rat and a raccoon is that the rat will at least wait for you to drop your pizza before stealing it...

HOW WILL THE INDIANS BE NO-HIT TODAY?

If there's one thing New York sports reporters love to talk about, it's how tough New York sports reporters are.
   7. phredbird Posted: May 08, 2021 at 02:59 PM (#6017795)

yadi is back in the lineup, and he's already driven in a run hitting a grounder to the right side with a man on 3rd (productive out), and made a tag on a runner coming from third on a bunt that martinez flipped to him.

dan and jim were speculating that shildt might have gone to yadi to see if maybe he would like to wait one more day before going back behind the plate, and had a chuckle about that thinking about what yadi's reaction would be.
   8. phredbird Posted: May 08, 2021 at 03:29 PM (#6017798)

now he's driven in two more with a bases loaded single up the middle ...

it is the rockies, but still ... impressive.

If there's one thing New York sports reporters love to talk about, it's how tough New York sports reporters are.

you're missing the point.

whatever the merits - or lack thereof - of NY media being "tough" on athletes, it's something that those athletes have to recognize.

I don't ever recall a feud with that media ending well for the athlete.

the pandemic, btw, has changed so many dynamics here.

normally, Lindor - generally a gregarious fellow, it seems - would have spent countless face-to-face hours with the beat guys. instead, they barely know each other through Zoom calls.

I find it hard it imagine Lindor being so condescending with people he knew well.

meanwhile, in a normal year, the post-game scrum around Lindor's locker would have been ... interesting.

the same for talks with McNeil, who would have been more easily pressed by writers who he's known for years not to, in their minds, also proverbially piss on their heads and tell them it's raining.

Lindor can mostly nip it in the bud with an apology, but again, it would be to people he doesn't really know - and he may think this won't come back to bite him. Zeile understands the dynamic at play.

(personally, I didn't particularly care for the level of acrimony many on certain beats would tend to have. but that didn't make it go away, either - it is what it is.)

Cardinal pitchers (outside of Flaherty and Wainwright) have an issue with throwing a pitch in the strike zone.
   11. phredbird Posted: May 08, 2021 at 03:58 PM (#6017802)

aw geez, i walk away for a minute and when i come back martinez is trying to give the game back to the rockies ...
   12. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:01 PM (#6017804)
5-1 Cardinals.. I mean 5-2 Cardinals... I mean 5-5 tie game. Can't really blame Shildt for this, Carlos just the ability to throw strikes.
   13. phredbird Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:02 PM (#6017805)

oh for corn's sake ...

martinez finally finds the strike zone, gets two strikes on the batter with two out, then serves up a big fat fastball up the middle.

game tied ...
   14. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:04 PM (#6017806)
Dylan Carlson for Roy.
   15. phredbird Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:08 PM (#6017808)

wow ...

goldschmidt gets all of it, with a man on base.

cards back on top ...
   16. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:10 PM (#6017809)
LOL... Dan Mclaughlin forced Jim Edmonds to declare whether or not he thinks Goldschmidt is going to hit a homerun, this is a play on the other day when Brad Thompson said "I feel like a homerun is coming here, just the way he is seeing the ball right now." and then whoever was up, hit a homerun. So Dan is making Edmonds commit to calling a homerun, so Edmonds is like sure. I think that he'll hit one right.. .next pitch a gorgeous pitch, that Goldy just barely fouls off, and for some reason the pitcher comes back with another meaty pitch and Goldy didn't foul that one back.


A fun little interplay between Dan and Jim is that Dan asks Jim to be the play by play guy, since he has now committed to calling the homerun... Jim responds that his son has told him that sometimes he'll be watching the game, and that Jim has a tendency to get in the way of Dan doing his thing. Hilarious.

7-5 Cardinals.
   17. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:11 PM (#6017810)
Arenando with a double that if he was hustling at all would have been an easy triple as the left fielder mis-judged the bounce off the wall.
   18. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:12 PM (#6017812)
Doesn't matter as Dejong hits a double to make it 8-5
   19. phredbird Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:13 PM (#6017813)

well, the offense is working today, anyway.

hope shildt can stay out of his own way when it's time to get a reliever out there.

   20. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:14 PM (#6017814)
Edmonds seems to think that Molina has re-injured himself on that first swing.
   21. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:15 PM (#6017815)
I think Edmonds is right, those last two pitches made it look like Molina had zero desire to be in the batters box.
   22. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:17 PM (#6017816)
Small ball, steal third, score on a sacrifice to center 9-5 Cardinals.
   23. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:19 PM (#6017819)
If Yadier is injured, he still plans on going out to play defense... with a four run lead, maybe take the rest of the day off.
   24. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:36 PM (#6017821)
Max Scherzer having an interesting weather-delayed start @ Yankee Stadium. Gets a flyout to start the game, then strikes out 6 straight, before giving up a game-tieing solo HR to Kyle Hisgashioka, while also passing Mickey Lolich (2,832) for 20th place on the Career Strikeout Leaderboard. Now at 7 K’s in 3 innings work.

EDIT: Scherzer now at 10 K’s, along with 2 fly outs, after 4 innings & 63 pitches. Still 1-1.
   25. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 04:47 PM (#6017823)
No Gold glove for O'Neil this year.

For some reason your post made me go look him up. I think it's because I knew he was from my area (turns out he's actually from St Louis, I just thought he was a Missourian, not a St Louisian)

Anyway, funny thing is that nobody of celebrity fame is born on my birthday (there is a philosopher of some reknown I guess, but not really--and a dictator or really bad guy I can't remember and Jim Davis of Garfield "fame") and I looked at his birthday, and saw it was the day before mine...and I'm like "couldn't you stay in there one more day?" (14 years later of course since I'm old and he's not.)

   27. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 05:18 PM (#6017833)
Reyes being asked to pitch a 5 out save.
   28. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 05:22 PM (#6017835)
Reyes is having good results so far this season, and nobody is hitting off of him, but 12 walks in 15 innings and 4 wild pitches (now 13 walks) is not a sign of great pitching. I get that as a closer, walks are more accepted, simply because often times you don't want to give up the juicy pitch and you keep playing the corners, but still they do come back to bite you from time to time.
   29. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 05:28 PM (#6017839)
wow... I thought that ball had a bit more elevation than that, glad it didn't 8-9 Cardinals leading.
   30. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 05:33 PM (#6017841)
Let's hope the trend continues, every time the Rockies have scored in this game, the Cardinals have responded with same or more runs. Rockies scored 3 last half.
   31. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 05:45 PM (#6017842)
Nope... didn't happen, Reyes just has to be good then.
   32. Walt Davis Posted: May 08, 2021 at 05:47 PM (#6017843)
Cubs win another 3-2 squeaker over the Pirates, thanks to Heyward busting his ass from 2nd on a bloop single.
   33. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 05:58 PM (#6017844)
Reyes is up to the challenge, his 16th game that he finished, his 10th save, and he allowed his first run of the season to balloon his era up to 0.53 Did allow an inherited runner to score, so he hasn't really been great at that (roughly 33%... the standard for relievers is about 30% with guys like Trevor Hoffman being a bit better around 20%)
   34. Snowboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 06:05 PM (#6017845)
If I read it correctly, Scherzer this year has passed Cy Young, Mike Mussina, and now Mickey Lolich on the all-time K list. Next is Jim Bunning.

BONUS: as an answer to the eternal Primer question "what's this go to do with Frank Tanana?" Scherzer began the season just ahead of him on the all-time K list. And Tanana's the next guy Greinke will pass.
   35. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 06:05 PM (#6017846)
Cubs win another 3-2 squeaker over the Pirates, thanks to Heyward busting his ass from 2nd on a bloop single.



I know Cubs fans aren't happy with his overall performance, but at no point in time did I ever get the impression that Heyward doesn't work and bust his ass. I still wished the Cardinals would have found a way to convince him to stay.
   36. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: May 08, 2021 at 06:16 PM (#6017848)
As far as I’ve seen Cubs fans universally credit Heyward with being a hard worker, good teammate, positive clubhouse presence, etc. Of course, it’s always followed by a “but…”
   37. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 06:25 PM (#6017849)
Just curious, I'm randomly looking for landing spaces for Albert Pujols, and what in the hell is a Bobby Dalbec, and is there anything in his profile that makes people think he's a major league firstbaseman?
   38. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 08, 2021 at 06:46 PM (#6017851)
Folks here are vastly overrating the likelihood of any team picking up Pujols. He’s no longer a useful player; no reason to waste a roster spot; and Pujols no longer has any financial reason to play.
   39. Pat Rapper's Delight (as quoted on MLB Network) Posted: May 08, 2021 at 07:11 PM (#6017853)
RIP to the former Mrs. Chuck Finley, Tawny Kitaen, at age 59.
   40. Howie Menckel Posted: May 08, 2021 at 07:22 PM (#6017854)
Dalbec had a 152 OPS+ in 92 PA last season (which appears to have been a fluke)
   41. salvomania Posted: May 08, 2021 at 08:47 PM (#6017864)
The Dbacks' Josh Rojas has batted twice tonight, and has reached twice on catcher's interference vs. James McCann.

That has to be pretty rare.
   42. Edmundo got dem ol' Kozma blues again mama Posted: May 08, 2021 at 08:48 PM (#6017865)
It’s sad enough to see Andrew McCutchen struggle at the plate, but watching his misadventures in the outfield is even sadder. The latest: a fly ball deep in the corner that Andrew gets to but lets the ball smack him in the wrist. He appeared stunned for the moment, which allows the mostly jogging Albies to make it to third.

EDIT: Andrew has a nice swing to lead off the next inning with a single. It appears that the wrist is fine.
   43. cardsfanboy Posted: May 08, 2021 at 08:49 PM (#6017866)
Folks here are vastly overrating the likelihood of any team picking up Pujols. He’s no longer a useful player; no reason to waste a roster spot; and Pujols no longer has any financial reason to play.


I don't think anyone is overrating the events, they are playing the game of who would ? for the most part it's assumed Pujols won't get any traction, but it's always possible someone might offer something that, as a competitor he might take up.

Acuna just hit on the hand by a fastball and it looks BAD

he dodged an inside fastball from Coonrod on the previous pitch and tossed his bat away in the process

but oddly - and I welcome more feedback - this one looked like it was over the plate but too high, and Acuna went after it and got bit
   45. Walt Davis Posted: May 08, 2021 at 10:07 PM (#6017874)
I know Cubs fans aren't happy with his overall performance, but at no point in time did I ever get the impression that Heyward doesn't work and bust his ass.

I didn't mean to imply otherwise. I cited it because it was next-level ass-busting, he looked as fast as 24-yo Heyward. (We all get older and Heyward has lost a step or two on the bases and in the field.)
   46. Walt Davis Posted: May 08, 2021 at 10:15 PM (#6017875)
what in the hell is a Bobby Dalbec

It was hoped he was the next Brian Daubach.
   47. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 08, 2021 at 10:30 PM (#6017877)
Acuna just hit on the hand by a fastball and it looks BAD . . .
Although Acuna reacted as if might lose a finger, if not his whole hand, his injury is apparently just a bruise.
   48. Howie Menckel Posted: May 08, 2021 at 10:41 PM (#6017878)
Phillies - one strike away from a 6th straight win - see Neris throw a cookie to Pablo Sandoval, who gobbles it up for a 2-run HR to tie the game at 3-3. 4th pinch-dinger of the young season for The Artist Formerly Known As Kung Fu Panda.
   49. Howie Menckel Posted: May 08, 2021 at 11:14 PM (#6017881)
another unwritten rule apparently violated:

Dodgers lead Angels, 13-0 in the 5th, and with a man on and one out, an Angel tries a bunt (that winds up in a forceout at second).

Kershaw is visibly pissed at this 'violation,' jawing at the batter - and then even throwing over to first base.

in the 9th inning? more interesting.

but with half the game left? I think the Angels need a couple of baserunners, stat.
   50. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: May 08, 2021 at 11:20 PM (#6017882)
I think Kershaw was just pointing out a raccoon near the Angels’ dugout.
   51. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 09, 2021 at 12:10 AM (#6017884)
Neither Braves nor Phillies deserved a win, but the Phillies bullpen stink was more toxic than the Braves sloppy fielding, blowing a 7-4 lead in 12th.
   52. Howie Menckel Posted: May 09, 2021 at 12:16 AM (#6017885)
Phillies blow leads of 3-1, 4-3, and 7-4 from the 9th inning on. impressive.

NL LEAST

Mets 15-13
Phillies 18-16
Braves 16-17
Marlins 15-17
Nationals 13-16

net (and gross) record of 77-79
   53. Howie Menckel Posted: May 09, 2021 at 12:20 AM (#6017886)

Kershaw is visibly pissed at this 'violation,' jawing at the batter - and then even throwing over to first base.


it's now 14-11 in the 7th, and the Angels await a ruling from Lord Kershaw on what tactics might now be permissible since his bullpen hath shat the bed by allowing those 11 runs in not even 2 innings.
   54. Snowboy Posted: May 09, 2021 at 12:35 AM (#6017888)
The tactic of prayer is permissible - prayer that the Dodgers score more runs, and do not unleash the fury of Designated Closer Kenley Jansen upon them Angels.
   55. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: May 09, 2021 at 12:37 AM (#6017889)
Largest blown lead in MLB history is 12 runs, so tonight could be a historical night for the Dodgers.
   56. The Duke Posted: May 09, 2021 at 12:46 AM (#6017890)
Could LAD lose this game? It would be epic
   57. Howie Menckel Posted: May 09, 2021 at 12:46 AM (#6017891)
and the three 12-run blown leads (Mariners-Indians the only one any of us were alive for) all were AL.

so Dodgers 'seek' to crush the NL record. Kershaw popped up in the dugout in the 7th, not sure if he will stick around for the end. I believe he had a shower, rubdown, ice bath, dinner, and a martini shaken, not stirred before his return.
   58. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 09, 2021 at 01:08 AM (#6017892)
The Angels should start the 9th with a ghost runner on 2nd, maybe no one will notice.
   59. Snowboy Posted: May 09, 2021 at 01:09 AM (#6017893)
Oh LAD went with Blake to Treinen get a save. #exciting #innovation
   60. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: May 09, 2021 at 01:10 AM (#6017894)
[57] And Kershaw was taken out quite early, given his pitch count and effectiveness. I guess Roberts decided that a 13 run lead was safe, so he might as well give Kershaw a light day today.
   61. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: May 09, 2021 at 01:26 AM (#6017898)
And the Dodgers survive 14-11 and end the four game losing streak.
   62. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 09, 2021 at 11:22 AM (#6017914)
Last night it looked like the only question was whether Ronald Acuna, last seen in apparently extremely intense pain after taking a HBP to the finger, would go on the 10 or 60-day IL, but reportedly he could return to the line-up today. Not sure if he’d survive the Shooty Challenge.

Honestly, I’m just surprised it’s taken this long. A Derby winner getting popped has seemed pretty inevitable ever since ARod’s suspension.

DeGrom, who was skipped in his last start with tightness in his side, has walked three batters in the 3rd inning vs. the DBacks, which seems very un-deGrom-like.

Also, is it just my computer or has the font for entering (not displaying) comments changed recently?

Nope, it's not just you.

   69. cardsfanboy Posted: May 09, 2021 at 02:56 PM (#6017928)
Cardinals gold gloves are going away apparently as Dejong has just made his fourth error of the season. Goldy might have saved him as they are reviewing the play, none of the replays I've seen are conclusive.
   70. JJ1986 Posted: May 09, 2021 at 03:13 PM (#6017929)
DeGrom, who was skipped in his last start with tightness in his side, has walked three batters in the 3rd inning vs. the DBacks, which seems very un-deGrom-like.
He got the first 12 batters of the game out and then his fastball was just sailing all over the place in the 5th.
   71. cardsfanboy Posted: May 09, 2021 at 03:34 PM (#6017930)
Yadier with an rbi double to score Arenando from first. Yadier is having a season, sadly the catcher having the best season in baseball (I think) is Carson Kelly who we traded away.
   72. cardsfanboy Posted: May 09, 2021 at 03:38 PM (#6017931)
Edmonds ragging on the potential rules eliminating the shift and other things, "if you are going to ban that, might as well go back to the way you did things in double a with vcr's and ignore the data you have from spray charts etc."
("that is like telling an outfielder that he can only play so deep or so shallow")
A somewhat surprising rant to be honest.
   73. cardsfanboy Posted: May 09, 2021 at 03:49 PM (#6017932)
5 ip so far for Wainwright, 1 hit, 2 walks, 0 runs, 68 pitches total. He may not be a Cy Young contender, but he's been pretty reliable every fifth day.
   74. cardsfanboy Posted: May 09, 2021 at 03:53 PM (#6017933)
Carlson has about .467 slugging this season, only Cardinal rookies to better that number is some nobodies named Pujols, Musial and Medwick. (and he is now on base for the third time today with his second single.)
   75. cardsfanboy Posted: May 09, 2021 at 04:09 PM (#6017935)
Waino's era is down to 4.02 if he can throw another inning without allowing a run, drops below 4.0 which would be nice considering where it was earlier in the season...

Yadier with another double to raise his average to .333 and put his ops to 1.011.
   76. cardsfanboy Posted: May 09, 2021 at 04:37 PM (#6017938)
Wainwright through 8 innings, 2 hits allowed, 3 walks, 99 pitches, might have enough to get another complete game in a 2-0 Cardinals lead. He's fifth up this inning though. So a rally might force him to get pulled unless an obvious sac situation is there.

two outs, bottom of the 8th, and the Cardinals have nobody throwing in the bullpen, so it looks like Waino is going out for the ninth.

Waino came into todays game, tied with Kershaw among active pitchers for the second most complete games. He's trying to break that tie. (Verlander is number one by a good margin)

dang...waino just couldn't close the door.

Not sure Helsey would have been the guy I went to.. but it's Shildt, you expect a certain level of Whiney Herzog incompetence when it comes to bullpen management.

I love being wrong, double play to end the game.

21-14 not a bad start to the season.

Jason Benetti, as Mike Matheny makes a pitching change with two outs in the 9th for the second day in a row, trailing by 6 (8 yesterday): “We’ll be back with the rest of the Super Bowl after this.” Nice.

Jose Quintana done after 4+ today, allowing one run. That was his second-best outing all season. In six starts this season, he's only had four 1-2-3 innings. That seems to be a stunningly low number.

How are we supposed to make fun of old, racist, out of touch Tony La Russa when he keeps winning with a broken down team?

Become a Republican and don't let facts interfere with your opinion.

Zack Greinke today third straight start with only 4IP.
Entered the 5th today with 7-0 lead, gave up 4 runs without getting an out and was removed.
