HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!
   2. The Duke Posted: June 25, 2021 at 04:05 PM (#6026335)
Edman seemed to go after cards coaching staff in post-game last night

“I don’t think we’ve necessarily done the greatest job of making a gameplan for how guys are gonna throw us day by day and working on things pregame. … I think we’re going to start to implement a few more of those things."

Shildt both countered it and then kind of admitted it

Something’s gotta give when that kind of exchange ends up in the public domain

Edman’s quote looks much worse than how he actually said it - it didn’t sound like an intentional slam but I can hardly believe he could say something like this without some sort of repercussion.

Aaron Nola might be about to do something cool.
   4. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 25, 2021 at 05:12 PM (#6026345)
Nola ties Tom Seaver’s MLB record of 10 consecutive strikeouts, against the Mets, even.
   5. Hombre Brotani Posted: June 25, 2021 at 05:15 PM (#6026346)
Pete Alonzo ruins everything, LIKE USUAL!
   6. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 25, 2021 at 05:18 PM (#6026347)
Alonso double ends the K streak at 10. Normally, there’d be time to put up more interesting numbers since it’s just the 4th inning, but this is one of those 7-inning shorties.
   7. Pat Rapper's Delight (as quoted on MLB Network) Posted: June 25, 2021 at 05:18 PM (#6026348)
I'm surprised the record hasn't been broken multiple times already this season. The only thing preserving it must be that a pitcher has to pitch in 4 consecutive innings to do it.
   8. Hombre Brotani Posted: June 25, 2021 at 05:30 PM (#6026351)
Nola's doing his deGrom impression. 10 straight Ks, RBI double.
   9. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 25, 2021 at 05:31 PM (#6026352)
The only thing preserving it must be that a pitcher has to pitch in 4 consecutive innings to do it.
Wild pitches & passed balls on 3rd strikes could make it less than 4 innings, although the odds would be long on such an occurrence.
   10. AndrewJ Posted: June 25, 2021 at 05:59 PM (#6026361)
Carlton’s 19-K game in 1969 was tied repeatedly until Clemens fanned 20 in 1986, and that’s been equaled several times since. I’m surprised Seaver’s 10-in-a-row went unchallenged for basically half the Lively Ball Era.

Congratulations, Mr. Nola.
   11. TomH Posted: June 25, 2021 at 06:11 PM (#6026364)
9 KOS to go to break the record.. 11 outs left until the end of 9 innnings.
   12. TomH Posted: June 25, 2021 at 06:15 PM (#6026366)
well, so much for THAT possibility (Nola exits)
   13. Hombre Brotani Posted: June 25, 2021 at 06:31 PM (#6026367)
Nola looked gassed, and he was only at 99 pitches. Every pitch in the 4th and 5th looked like max-effort pitches.
   14. JJ1986 Posted: June 25, 2021 at 06:31 PM (#6026368)
Luis Rojas is a big fan of having 1-inning relievers go 2 innings.
   15. Hombre Brotani Posted: June 25, 2021 at 06:54 PM (#6026374)
Lindor squares up an Alvarado 100 MPH heater for an RBI single. Bad start to his Mets career, but Lindor's having a solid June.
   16. Howie Menckel Posted: June 25, 2021 at 07:01 PM (#6026376)
Mets radio guys noted emphatically early in the game how stupefyingly bad the Phillies' phunda - er, fundamentals are. and it has been on display today
   17. Edmundo got dem ol' Kozma blues again mama Posted: June 25, 2021 at 07:03 PM (#6026378)
9 KOS to go to break the record.. 11 outs left until the end of 9 innnings.


It’s game 1 of a DH, so there were 5 outs to get 9 Ks. ;)
   18. Edmundo got dem ol' Kozma blues again mama Posted: June 25, 2021 at 07:12 PM (#6026380)
Phillies could not even advance the little league runner with the meat of the order in the 8th.
   19. Hombre Brotani Posted: June 25, 2021 at 07:14 PM (#6026381)
Shohei Ohtani hit a lead-off homer that went over the the right stands. It hit the catwalk up near the roof in right field, 453 feet away. Once again tied for the league lead in homers.
   20. Howie Menckel Posted: June 25, 2021 at 07:17 PM (#6026382)
Phillies snatch away the co-lead from the Bad News Rockies by blowing their 20th game of the young season when they had a lead.
   21. Howie Menckel Posted: June 25, 2021 at 07:48 PM (#6026386)
hold all tickets - Rockies blow a 4-1 lead late and go to extras.....
   22. Hombre Brotani Posted: June 25, 2021 at 08:02 PM (#6026390)
Ohtani with a bunt single up the 1st base line, into the shift, catching everyone flat-footed. He's the most special boy in the world.
   23. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 08:25 PM (#6026393)
I feel like La Hombre recently "how will the Cardinals lose today" or more accurately which of the first three innings of the game will the Cardinals give the other team the lead and never remotely challenge them to get it back.
   24. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 08:33 PM (#6026396)
I do think Edman was right, the Cardinals batters really don't seem to have a game plan when going up there, this pitcher can't find the strike zone if it was 40 feet away and yet they are swinging early in the count.
   25. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 08:37 PM (#6026397)
As an example the guy has thrown 18 pitches 8 for strikes, of those 8 strikes 3 were in play outs and one was a single. It was pretty clear by the third batter that he cannot find the strike zone, it was pretty clear by the second batter to be honest... and yet they are still swinging on 1-0 pitches.
   26. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 08:42 PM (#6026398)
Damnit, guy steals a bag on Yadier, he was safe, but momentum carried him off the bag and by replay, he is pretty clearly out, but again this is a stupid replay. It helped my team and my catcher, but it's one of the things I don't want from replay... "spirit of the game" not blind faith to the rules. Mind you, it took about 4 seconds for the replay to "fix" this call, but it's not a call I agree with even though it favored my personal team.
   27. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 25, 2021 at 08:42 PM (#6026399)
Another Schwarber HR tonight, #22, a solo shot, but it might not be enough to offset Jon Lester’s poor pitching, as the Nationals trail Miami 7-2 in 3rd.
   28. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 08:46 PM (#6026400)
One called strike, and then Edman decides to swing at two pitches out of the strike zone... recognize when a guy can't find the strike zone to save his life, and realize that one lucky pitch isn't him finding his mojo.

He just threw a fastball right down the middle of the plate, if that doesn't tell you this guy has no idea where his pitches are going, then nothing will. Nobody throws a first pitch fastball right down the middle of the plate when they are topping out at 94mph. He was aiming somewhere else and couldn't control it.
   29. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 08:51 PM (#6026402)
The Pirates pitcher just hit the pitcher batting who was trying to sacrifice, and it wasn't the batter leaning in... again, this guy(Crowe) has absolute zero command on his pitches, the only outs he is going to make is because the Cardinal batters have zero game plan except to swing away. (well it seems the game plan is to take pitch one, then swing at everything else, and apparently the Pirates know this, because the only pitches they have thrown in the strike zone have been first pitches)

Ex Cubs giveth, ex Cubs taketh away.
   31. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 09:15 PM (#6026407)
How is that not an error?
   32. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 09:17 PM (#6026409)
Arenando is the only player on the team worth a crap to be honest right now... him and O'Neil I guess.
   33. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 09:20 PM (#6026410)
I always love it when Yadier steals a base, him stealing third with less than two out is even more hilarious.
   34. Doug Jones threw harder than me Posted: June 25, 2021 at 09:22 PM (#6026412)
Obviously an extreme, small-sample-size case, but George Springer only has 24 (I think) PA this season, but he has a .167 BA and an .827 OPS (4 hits, 3 Hrs)
   35. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 09:23 PM (#6026413)
early in his mlb career, and the numbers aren't there yet, but nootbaar seems to have a clutch knack.
   36. Hombre Brotani Posted: June 25, 2021 at 09:37 PM (#6026415)
Taylor Ward's working on an 0-20 streak, and he's also made three misplays in left field (one error charged) tonight, which has led to three of the Rays' four runs. With both Trout and Upton gone, the Angels are basically just a two-man gang. Predictably, they're losing.
   37. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 09:43 PM (#6026417)
Carlson ties the game up 4-4... this is surprising, the Cardinals actually scored runs after the other team took the lead.
   38. Hombre Brotani Posted: June 25, 2021 at 10:03 PM (#6026419)
Justin Upton had been hitting .326/.420/.600 since being moved to lead-off, so of course he's hurt. His LF replacement cost the Angels the game. It's just dispiriting. Whenever good things start happening, something always comes up and yoinks it away.
   39. cardsfanboy Posted: June 25, 2021 at 10:07 PM (#6026420)
omg... Sosa looks to have seriously injured himself on that play, trying to do a little too much maybe, but he was writhing in pain. He seems to think he's alright, but it looked like something in the high back leg muscle, but he seems to be arguing he's okay. Might have been just a cramp or acting?
   40. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 25, 2021 at 10:18 PM (#6026422)
The Yankees Johnathan Loaisiga struck out 4 in the bottom of the 7th, due to one batter reaching first on the wild pitch he missed. I believe that ties a MLB record, held by many.
   41. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 25, 2021 at 10:37 PM (#6026425)
A's @ Giants... gotta love the Bay Area fight.
   42. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: June 25, 2021 at 10:38 PM (#6026426)
Red Sox add insurance, up 5-3 in the 8th
   43. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 25, 2021 at 10:39 PM (#6026427)
McCudgeon a late bloomer ?
   44. Howie Menckel Posted: June 25, 2021 at 10:45 PM (#6026429)
ooh, Rockies also blow their game and now have 20 of them just like the Phillies.

but like a great heavyweight fight, the haymakers keep coming - and the Phillies blow ANOTHER 1-run lead in the last inning of Game 2.

this time the Mets make two fielding hiccups that allow the Phillies a run, and the Mets fail to score so the blown-lead battle remains tied.
   45. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: June 25, 2021 at 10:55 PM (#6026430)
YC, when you posted this yesterday:

Not a happy flight back to Boston, one would assume. Probably arriving ~ 3:00 AM, while the Yankees had an afternoon game at home, completed in a crisp 3:03, before heading to Boston for the weekend series.


You sounded like a git then and it looks even dumber now with the empire dropping another game to the Red Sox.
   46. Howie Menckel Posted: June 25, 2021 at 11:11 PM (#6026433)
it's over - it's always been over!

the Orioles, down 5-1 in the 8th and heading for the 21st straight road loss, fight like lions - or wildebeests, one of those - and rally to win 6-5.

the DBacks - is it 23 in a row on the road? - allow 4 first-inning runs in SD and their SP gets just one out.
they do fight back with 3 in the second, at least. but we all know how this one plays out.
   47. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: June 26, 2021 at 01:06 AM (#6026438)
Tatis with a neat 4 4 4 4 line with 3 homers so far. Dbacks looking at #24 as Howie mentioned.
   48. TomH Posted: June 26, 2021 at 07:59 AM (#6026443)
MLB leaders, career, fewest AB per HR

McGwire 10.6
Ruth.... 11.7
Bonds.. 12.9

F Tatis, currently 12.1, *would be* 3rd, but of course his "career" is only beginning

Active leader is Stanton 13.9, followed by Trout
