Reds have dropped an 8-spot on the Cubs in the 3rd, still batting with just one out.

EDIT: Nick Senzel just caught stealing for the second out. He's 0-for-2 stealing this year, and just 18-for-32 in his career. Maybe he's just not a very good basestealer.

Reds up 14-5 in the bottom of the 7th. My first thought seeing that was "not sure that's going to be enough".

That's okay, because the Cubs have just brought Andrelton Simmons in to pitch, who I think is the worst position player pitching I've ever seen. 2 runs scored so far, one out.

Per Cubs broadcast, MLB and MLBPA have agreed to keep up to 14 pitchers through 19 June.

Agreed ... I assume Andrelton thinks he's throwing a knuckler but it is not remotely knuckling so it's essentially a softball pitch.

The Yankees signed Matt Carpenter to a Major League contract. Expectations should be low, IMHO, but the concern is whether that’s an indication that DJ LeMahieu’s wrist problem is more than the day-to-day item originally indicated. Manny Bañuelos is also called up, about a decade after he was a big-time Yankee prospect before being traded. Estevan Florial & JP Sears optioned. Sears pitched very well in yesterday’s spot start, so this appears to be just a maneuver to obtain a fresh arm with the bullpen a bit thin (by 2022 standards) while Chapman, Green & Loáisiga are on the IL.

4-game series at Rays starting tonight. It’s early, but the Yankees could cushion their AL East lead considerably with a series win, while a Rays win might indicate it’ll be neck & neck all season long.

A bit too early to write off all the other contenders like the Red S...err, the Blue Jays.

The Reds ended up with 20 runs and 20 hits. Votto was 0 for 3 with 2 BB. With 20 hits, before checking the box score, you would've assumed Joey would've had a couple of hits considering he's been looking solid these past few days.
Baseball is a funny game sometimes.

#STLCards manager Oliver Marmol said RHP Dakota Hudson will use PitchCom on Friday in an attempt to help him pick up his pace, especially when runners are on base. Hudson is a ground-ball pitcher and the Cardinals want him to pitch quicker to keep the defense engaged.

Judge RBI single gives the Yanks a 1-0 lead @ Rays in 6th.
   10. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 08:19 PM (#6078576)
Keuchel fooling no one. Carmine Hose up 3-0 in the first and they are hitting the ball hard.
   11. Walt Davis Posted: May 26, 2022 at 08:20 PM (#6078577)
That inning started with Yarbrough plunking Carpenter and he was really pissed at himself for that.
   12. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: May 26, 2022 at 08:27 PM (#6078580)
The Rays brought in another long-haired, bearded bullpen droid. This model is apparently called the “Ralph Garza, Jr.” That’s how you know they’re droids - what humans are named “Ralph” these days?
   13. Walt Davis Posted: May 26, 2022 at 08:29 PM (#6078581)
Too bad Sam Elliott didn't have a role in Field of Dreams cuz that's what Matt Carpenter looks like.

Sam Waterson's line from Grace & Frankie: there are 10 great mustaches in the world and that guy is 9 of them.
   14. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 08:36 PM (#6078582)
Wacha holds the 3-0 lead, but with 18 pitches and a couple of warning track flyouts, the Pale House made him work a little bit for it.
   15. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 08:40 PM (#6078583)
Keuchel has settled a bit, has the cutter and change up working; except against Devers, who extends his XBH lead with another double.
   16. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 08:49 PM (#6078584)
Story does NOT leave the 2 runners stranded. 3 run homer in the 2nd that just gets out, Red Sox up 6-0
   17. Walt Davis Posted: May 26, 2022 at 08:53 PM (#6078585)
Isn't that Story's 37th HR of the week?

Ralph Garza Jr is the 3rd Garza to make the majors, all unrelated it seems. I don't recall ever meeting a Garza in real life.
   18. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 26, 2022 at 08:57 PM (#6078586)
Nestor Cortes tossed 7 scoreless inning for the Yanks, allowing 2 hits, on 92 pitches, which is a day’s work these days, but comes out for the 8th, getting 2 outs while I type this.

EDIT: After a harmless single, Cortes gets the final out of the inning on a warning track fly to LF. Presumably done at 105 pitches, Game Score 80. 4-0 Yankees heading into the 9th.

EDIT II: Judge’s bases-loaded SF makes it 5-0.

Not quite, but he is up to 38 rbi's, which is pretty good considering he had like 10 2 weeks ago. Amazing what happens when you combine a few dingers with the 3 guys hitting in front of you averaging like .385 OBP. Lots of ducks on the pond to bring around.
   20. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 26, 2022 at 09:22 PM (#6078590)
Nestor Cortes being allowed to pitch the 9th. Never had a MLB complete game before, and now a leadoff single ends his pursuit. Still, a very good effort. 7-0, with Wandy Peralta now on the mound.
   21. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 09:25 PM (#6078591)
Pale hose making a game of it. Vaughn(who looks pretty darn good) with a bases clearing double, 6-3 Carmine hose in the 3rd. Wacha is getting hit pretty hard, not sure how long he'll last.
   22. Howie Menckel Posted: May 26, 2022 at 09:32 PM (#6078592)
just learned that the sons of Andruw Jones and Matt Holliday each may be top 5 picks in the annual June MLB draft (which is taking place in mid-July).
   23. salvomania Posted: May 26, 2022 at 09:34 PM (#6078593)
Byron Buxton is 0 for his last 27, and just 3-for-45 since May 7 (yet has somehow scored 7 runs in the 13 games over that period).

In the last 19 days his season line has gone from an MVP-like .290/,355/.754 to .197/.275/.521... which still works out to an OPS+ of around 135.

This is definitely one to file under the "holy sh*t am I old" category as I'm sure many of us were already adults(like proper adults with partners/houses/kids and some of that other stuff) when Andruw and Matt were doing their thing. Thanks Howie for making us all feel a little older.

Wacha works through the 4th, but the pale hose are hitting the ball hard....
   25. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 10:10 PM (#6078600)
Vaughn with a 2 run homer, 7-5 Carmine hose. I'll say this again, this Vaughn kid look real good.
   26. Howie Menckel Posted: May 26, 2022 at 10:18 PM (#6078603)
Joe Girardi is so old that he forgot the MLBCA (Closers Association) directive.

Nola is absolutely dominating the Braves - 4-0 lead through 8 IP, 4 H, 0 BB, 10 K, just under 100 pitches - so he gets the ball to start the 9th.

one fly out, but then a deeper one gives us the whimsical RF stylings of Castellanos so that's a double.

wait, tying run is not yet on deck - don't bring in Knebel now, it's not quite a SV situation !

Knebel, like any good rank-and-file guy, knows what to do. he allows a groundout to get the runner to 3rd, then tosses a wacky wild pitch to put a run on Nola's line, and allows a walk. that ought to make Girardi think twice next time.

his point now having been made, Knebel closes with a K.

that's Nola's first win since Opening Day, in spite of 4 Quality Starts since then and a 3.56 ERA for the season.

in other news, I don't believe that I am superstitious but... whenever I have a nice lead in my Rotisserie League, I still make a "sacrifice" to the fantasy baseball gods at the trade deadline by acquiring a lame-duck star by sacrificing a possible keeper to the other owner.

in 2004, or was it 2005, that deal was me getting a lame-duck Andruw Jones for a developing Matt Holliday.

if either offspring gets chosen by an NL team, I may be in position to select the son.

and hell, I saw Bobby Bonds play (and his godfather Willie Mays play, too), and in our first farmhand draft, I chose Barry Bonds....

Vazques singles in a run, Red Sox up 8-5. If he and Verdugo are hitting, that Red Sox line up is loooong.....
   28. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 10:51 PM (#6078608)
Bobby "I probably don't belong on a MLB team" Dalbec swings right through a 93mph fastball right down the middle, still 2 on for Arroyo.
   29. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 10:53 PM (#6078610)
Arroyo brings home another, now 9-5 Red Sox.

The reliever Banks, is the....world's.....slowest.....worker. He should be fined or something, it's ridiculous.
   30. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 11:10 PM (#6078615)
JD with another hit, now hitting .383, which is pretty darn impressive.
   31. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 11:27 PM (#6078620)
OMG, even Dalbec got a hit and rbi. Everyone associated with the Red Sox should buy a lottery ticket; wonders will never cease. Red Sox up 12-5
   32. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 11:31 PM (#6078622)
tapper back to the pitcher...and he overthrows Abreu by like 5 feet(and Abreu is big), Red Sox with 2 more as the game moves into the comedy arena for the White Sox. The efforts of solid White Sox youngster Vaughn gone to waste.
   33. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 11:45 PM (#6078624)
The Red Sox have decided to give the White Sox a chance by bringing in Barnes, 1 out, based loaded on 3 consecutive walks.
   34. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 26, 2022 at 11:47 PM (#6078625)
Barnes with 4 BB in row, walks in 1...Red Sox need to get him off the bump.
   35. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 27, 2022 at 12:03 AM (#6078628)
White Sox bring in Harrison for the 9th, actually gets JD to fly out, Xander on a questionable strike 3 and gives up a dinger to that noted power hitter Plawecki.
