HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!

By blowing 5 saves in one game?

At one point in the season, the Cubs were cruising along pretty good at 38-27 on June 13. Since then they are 14-35, run differential of -95. That's sub-300 ball. It's been atrocious since the dealine but the rot had set in long before that. The end to this season will be ugly. At this point, they need to finish better than 10-39 to avoid 100 losses and that's far from guaranteed. It had never occurred to me I'd say that about any baseball team but that's the reality of current baseball.

Just a thing I noticed: in interleague play, the AL leads the NL by eighteen games, 118-100 (88-win pace).

However, the NL has outscored the AL in those games, 1009 to 995 (-.09 runs/game pace).

In that small a sample I'd imagine a few blowouts could really skew the results.

Juan Soto went into tonight’s game hitting a gaudy .382/.460/.776 at Citi Field, and promptly boosted that a bit with a 1st inning 3-run HR.

It seems like I'm noticing, more than ever before since the advent of the "K-Zone era," more and more called strikes outside the zone by at least a ball's width.

I suppose it happens every game, but I feel like it happens multiple times every game that I'm seeing very obvious balls called strikes, and when I go back and look at them in Gameday they're way out of the zone. Probably better than it was in the '80s I suppose, and maybe seeing that box on the live feed makes it seem more egregious.

Still, you see hitters work a count, foul off a bunch of pitches, and then get punched out on a ball four four inches outside the zone.

"We're not just going to stick a needle in someone to hydrate them all because they're not doing it themselves."

Zack Scott says most of the Mets' soft-tissue injuries are due to "compliance issues" with players.

Maybe?
I think it'd be really unusual for an 88-win team to be outscored over a 162 game season, though I lack the search-fu to confirm.

Let's do some Athletics in Indians' land.
   11. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: August 10, 2021 at 08:51 PM (#6033744)
Wow, that underweight McKenzie guy is dynamite.

Eating disorder ?
   12. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: August 10, 2021 at 08:57 PM (#6033745)
Harrison and Marte good additions.

the 2008 Super Bowl Champion New York Giants only outscored their regular-season opponents by 22 points, the weakest margin ever until the 2011 Super Bowl Champion New York Giants outscored their regular-season opponents by... well, they actually got outscored by those opponents by six points. both teams went 9-7, or the equivalent of a 91-71 baseball team getting outscored

McKenzie making it look easy. Even with that eating disorder.

Oh, just broke Harrisons fingers.
   15. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: August 10, 2021 at 09:06 PM (#6033750)
WTF Harrison.

Let's go Athletics !
   19. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: August 10, 2021 at 09:43 PM (#6033757)
Nice running, Marte ! 2nd and 3rd ! 1 out, go A's !

Gonna see more of Marte in the Playoffs.

thinking of the weird way in which the 2021 legacy Cubs just.... disappeared as I watched the SNY rain-delay special about Gary Carter (game now suspended til tomorrow).

the Mets made it clear in 1989 that they were cutting ties with Carter and Keith Hernandez, who both seemed to have run out of gas.

so the Shea Stadium crowd got a full-throated chance to say goodbye to both, which was nice.

crowd was screaming GARY GARY GARY as he took his last at-bat, and he stepped out for a moment to catch his breath. then he laced a double down the LF line. Mets smart enough to pinch-run for him, so he got to leave to a hero's welcome. maybe they should have carried him off, but it was great.

SNY special paralleled his waning days as a Met to his waning days on Earth (died of cancer at age 57). got a little dusty in here as they showed his family and former teammates.

(IRL, Hernandez WAS done - a feeble half-season with the Indians left. but Carter was a serviceable part-time C for 3 more years - Giants, Dodgers, and, appropriately, Expos.)

Maddon moves Ohtani to the lead-off spot to try and get him going, and he promptly leads off with a triple. The rest of the team, of course, strands him.

The white phone paging Lou Reed...there's a baseball team in Boston that needs a fork stuck in it's arse, they're done!
   23. Hombre Brotani Posted: August 10, 2021 at 10:58 PM (#6033769)
I hadn't realized John Olerud was Toronto's first base coach. Just caught a flash of that batting helmet, no ear flaps, and recognized it immediately.
   24. chisoxcollector Posted: August 10, 2021 at 11:21 PM (#6033771)
I don't think he is?
   25. Hombre Brotani Posted: August 10, 2021 at 11:23 PM (#6033772)
He's not! It's not him!

Now I feel really bad about that. I guess I only know the helmet, not the man!
   26. Howie Menckel Posted: August 10, 2021 at 11:32 PM (#6033774)
famous, though dubious, story bout Rickey ! I think it was that he was bouncing from team to team and sees Olerud again - and tells him he had a teammate years earlier who wore a helmet like that (Olerud, of course).

...........

just see a highlight of a safety squeeze pulled off by the Royals with man on 3rd, 1 out vs NYY.
if you're a 25-year-old baseball fan, have you ever even seen that before?
maybe familiar in youth ball - but in the majors?
   27. Hombre Brotani Posted: August 10, 2021 at 11:42 PM (#6033777)
Rickey says that story never happened.
...

Vlad Jr.'s having a rough day. Bad first game with a costly error, struck out with a man on just now, and just smashed his bat and threw his batting helmet on the ground.
