Dusty Baker says he did not dress up like Zack Greinke on the flight yesterday because he didn't have any Greinke clothes with him. All his Greinke clothes are at home

Robbie Ray's 3rd K of the game gives him a new season-high at 236. Touted rookie Shane Baz also has 3 strikeouts over the first 2 innings. Each pitcher has given up a hit, however the one Baz allowed was a home run.

CHRIS ARCHER

July 31, 2018: Traded by the Tampa Bay Rays to the Pittsburgh Pirates for a player to be named later, Tyler Glasnow and Austin Meadows. The Pittsburgh Pirates sent Shane Baz (minors) (August 14, 2018) to the Tampa Bay Rays to complete the trade.

February 9, 2021: Signed as a Free Agent with the Tampa Bay Rays.

Nolan Arenado with a two-run shot, now up to 33 HRs and 101 RBIs as the Cardinals are cruising to their ninth straight win. He's never won the hardware, but Nolan's likely to pick up his sixth top ten MVP finish.

Nationals @ Marlins tonight features an all Rogers pitching rematch, Josh v. Trevor again. Cardinals @ Brewers just misses the same-name criteria with a Woodford v. Woodruff clash. Still waiting on the Statcast Wizards to provide the same-name matchup pitching leaders.
   13. The Duke Posted: September 21, 2021 at 05:42 PM (#6040774)
Preller, trying to stay ahead of the curve, fires farm director. Only guy left now is Tingler who will be saved until they are eliminated.
   14. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 21, 2021 at 05:55 PM (#6040776)
For all you Brian Kenny fans out there, the Dodgers' Julio Urias is the only pitcher in the majors with a chance to win 20 games this season. He goes for win No. 19 tonight against the Rockies, and will have one or two more starts after this one.
   15. The Duke Posted: September 21, 2021 at 06:18 PM (#6040780)
Urias, Buehler and scherzer may split some Cy young votes. Urias has been phenomenal. He’s been a cut below Degrom, Burnes, wheeler and now scherzer but I think has had a strong case for the Cy especially if he hits 20. I’m a big Waino fan and he can’t do it now so I’m going to root for Urias
   16. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 21, 2021 at 07:04 PM (#6040785)
Juan Soto has a 1st inning single, bringing his batting average to .316129, trailing only Trea Turner in the NL, who has a slim .000142 lead at .316271.
   17. The Duke Posted: September 21, 2021 at 07:27 PM (#6040789)
MLB has a great story up on its home page on the importance of 200 game winners and how hard that is to do.
Congrats to Jon Lester who had at least two other wins slip through his fingers in the last month. I’m sure he was wondering whether he might finish his career at 199.
   18. yo la tengo (the poor man's Ron Darling) Posted: September 21, 2021 at 08:04 PM (#6040798)
My phone tells me deGrom and Syndergaard are preparing to pitch before the end of the year. Hooray, I guess.
   19. cardsfanboy Posted: September 21, 2021 at 08:12 PM (#6040799)
1-0 start to the game against arguably one of the best pitchers in baseball, good start.
   20. cardsfanboy Posted: September 21, 2021 at 08:15 PM (#6040801)
I don't even get how Woodruff is at 9-9 this season, how is that even possible? (and looking at advance stats I see he has 4 tough losses, but still... 28 starts with a 2.55 era.... for a championship caliber team, you expect a bit better luck than 9-9.)
   21. cardsfanboy Posted: September 21, 2021 at 08:21 PM (#6040802)
I'm a Cardinal fan, and I don't know #### about Woodford, but he's looking like he knows what he is doing tonight.

Jayce Tingler: "I don't think I've lost the clubhouse. I believe a lot in our guys.''

Yikes
   23. cardsfanboy Posted: September 21, 2021 at 08:29 PM (#6040804)
I like to think that I don't think the Cardinals are going to lose another game this season.
   24. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: September 21, 2021 at 09:40 PM (#6040813)
Juan Soto has a 1st inning single, bringing his batting average to .316129, trailing only Trea Turner in the NL, who has a slim .000142 lead at .316271.


More importantly Juan has another BB, only 6 behind Ott on the under 22 list. If you're a young player and 3 names mentioned together are Williams, Mel Ott and you...well you're doing pretty darn good.
   25. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 21, 2021 at 10:16 PM (#6040819)
Yankees win 7-1 tonight, with Aaron Judge’s 3-run HR the big blow, but the two scoreless relief innings by Luis Severino may be of greater significance. Severino has been on the IL for 700+ days, and it’s too late to stretch him out as a starter, but a dominant reliever could come in handy down the stretch and into the playoffs. Yankees not getting any help on that front so far tonight, as the Red Sox & Blue Jays are leading. Yankees may have to win their road series against by those teams, or sweep one, to make the playoffs.
   26. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 21, 2021 at 10:41 PM (#6040825)
Urias leaves after six innings in a 4-4 game. There'll be no 20-game winners.
   27. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: September 21, 2021 at 10:52 PM (#6040826)
Red Sox win 6-3. Keep slightly ahead of the WC hoards trying to chase them down. Would really love to see them host the WC game as I think a game in Canada will see a few of their tin-foil hatted, anti vaxxers banned from attending the game(I'm looking at you Chris Sale!). And yes, I would agree with Canada's policy if they implement that.

Gallegos making us sweat here in the bottom of the 9th...

Treinen ?

#### you, Treinen !
   30. salvomania Posted: September 21, 2021 at 10:59 PM (#6040830)
Yikes, tying and winning runs on base for the Brewers with one out in the bottom of the 9th, and the Cardinals' winning streak---currently nine---on the line.
   31. Mike A Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:00 PM (#6040832)
Thank you, Orioles, for putting the winning run on base via IBB.

I get that it's Harper, but then you go ahead and pitch to Realmuto? WHY why why hwy ywh

The stupid ghost runner causes some really bad decisions.
   32. salvomania Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:00 PM (#6040833)
Gallegos doesn't seem to have it tonight...
   33. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:00 PM (#6040834)
Good life advice : Do not ever be a Treinen !
   34. The Duke Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:02 PM (#6040836)
Gallegos has nothing tonight - brewers should us be able to score here
   35. salvomania Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:03 PM (#6040837)
Fly ball to Bader is out No. 2, now Yelich up with the game on the line...

WHAAAAA?????? IBB to Yelich??? WTF, Shildt, moving the winning run to second, and a walk ties the game?

Do not like this move!
   36. salvomania Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:04 PM (#6040838)
Best pitch for Gallegos so far tonight is a curve that the pinch-hitter Pablo Reyes swings over for strike 2
   37. The Duke Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:05 PM (#6040839)
A four finger salute from Shildt - don’t like it
   38. salvomania Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:05 PM (#6040840)
Ball two, not much margin for error... two more balls and it's a tie game
   39. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:06 PM (#6040841)
Cards do it !
   40. salvomania Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:07 PM (#6040842)
Gets him with a nasty breaking pitch that darts out of the zone for strike three.

Ballgame!

10-game winning streak for the Cardinals!

And Shildt, despite the naysayers, pushes all the right buttons.
   41. phredbird Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:07 PM (#6040843)

cards win!

oh mama, what a finish ...

the broadcast team liked the IBB, staying away from yelich and letting a lightweight bat ...

but boy that was risky.

good night and good luck!
   42. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 21, 2021 at 11:07 PM (#6040844)

Looks like the Dodgers/giants battle will be the one that goes to wire. Cards look to be sewing up WC. Maybe Phillies can take Braves but unlikely
   46. cardsfanboy Posted: September 22, 2021 at 10:16 AM (#6040895)
Deadspin which has a hate/hate relationship with the Cardinals, just wrote their 10,003,804,300 article about the evil Cardinals... and as a Cardinal fan, I feel like Cartman licking the tears of Scott Tennerman
   47. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 22, 2021 at 07:24 PM (#6041112)
A 1st inning double gives Juan Soto the NL batting title lead by .000093, .317697 to Trea Turner’s .317604.

EDIT: And a 3rd inning HR (27) puts Soto at .319149.
   48. cardsfanboy Posted: September 22, 2021 at 07:49 PM (#6041118)
2-0 in the first inning for the Cardinals as Tyler O'Neill hit a two run homerun in the first.
   49. cardsfanboy Posted: September 22, 2021 at 07:58 PM (#6041119)
I'm sure that there are other people having better Septembers than O'Neil, but there probably aren't a lot. .319/.390/.667/1.057, 7 hr(now 8), 4 doubles, 20 runs, 17 rbi. (combine with his August .304/.411/.506/.917) and he's putting up a line of .311/.401/.583/.984 in his last 44 games (177 pa) (or basically a slightly inferior to Soto's full season...lower obp, a tad more slugging)
   50. cardsfanboy Posted: September 22, 2021 at 08:02 PM (#6041122)
Sosa injured himself on that slide, hopefully it's just a shock to the system.

Mikolas with a perfect sacrifice bunt, that is how you do it, you aren't trying to trick anyone, you just position the bat and make contact with the ball.
   51. cardsfanboy Posted: September 22, 2021 at 08:06 PM (#6041123)
Bader scores from second on a sacrifice fly. 4-0 Cardinals. Cain with a good catch but he doesn't have a chance, and makes a good heads up play knowing he can't make the play in his position and throws it to the right fielder who was backing him up on the play... But Bader is just motoring and scores without a play. Nobody is at fault here, Brewers did everything they could but Bader is just too fast, the ball was too well hit.
   52. cardsfanboy Posted: September 22, 2021 at 08:08 PM (#6041125)
O'Neill with a double to drive in Goldy and it's 5-0 in the 2nd inning for the Cardinals, they have been relentless during this streak.

Now I'm greedy and want at least one more run as Mobile on the Run, gives out $.60 drinks on days after the Cardinals score 6. (there is one in the parking lot of my work, and we always go there when it happens)
   53. cardsfanboy Posted: September 22, 2021 at 08:11 PM (#6041126)
6 is a serious number.... back, to back, to back doubles by Goldy, O'neill, and Arenado.
   54. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: September 22, 2021 at 08:39 PM (#6041134)
Red Sox up 9-1 in the 3rd. New guys Schwarber and Iglesias continue to get it done. Nice work Bloom.

With NY losing, maybe the Sox can gain another game on both of them...would be very handy right now.
   55. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: September 22, 2021 at 08:57 PM (#6041138)
Schwahbahhh, with the slg. % game so far, 2 homers and a double
   56. salvomania Posted: September 22, 2021 at 09:00 PM (#6041139)
Cardinals' defensive positioning is really impressive; seems like every ball---grounder, liner, or fly, no matter how hard hit---is at a fielder.
   57. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 22, 2021 at 09:04 PM (#6041140)
Soto a triple short of the cycle, plus a BB, so far, to bring his BA .321, while Trea Turner’s 1st inning single puts him at .319.
   58. cardsfanboy Posted: September 22, 2021 at 09:05 PM (#6041141)
Cardinals' defensive positioning is really impressive; seems like every ball---grounder, liner, or fly, no matter how hard hit---is at a fielder.


Have to agree, no massive shifts, just real good positioning.
   59. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: September 22, 2021 at 09:17 PM (#6041143)
Sox up 10-2. Sale through 5, 8K but 6 hits, 2 BB and 2 runs, so not his sharpest outing, but gets Baez to chase one(of course) out the zone to shut down a threat in the 5th.
   60. phredbird Posted: September 22, 2021 at 09:31 PM (#6041146)

jeez, that tag up and score from second was something else.

last time i saw the cardinals do that was in the 82 worlds series against ... the brewers.

   61. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: September 22, 2021 at 09:31 PM (#6041147)
Soto with another BB, that makes 2 today, only 4 behind Ott on Clapper's under 22 list.
   62. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 22, 2021 at 09:33 PM (#6041148)

This is so not going my way again. Ok, the Giants are in the Playoffs, which is more than I could have hoped for.
And nice, the Cards seem to make it easily.
Just please, Baseball God, do not let the Rays win it all! Please! With anything on top you want.

last time i saw the cardinals do that was in the 82 worlds series against ... the brewers.


They showed a replay of that play, along with a replay of Cain tagging up from second on a flyball hit to Bader in centerfield who fell on the catch. Bader tagging up is just pay back for the earlier play.
   66. Mike A Posted: September 22, 2021 at 10:00 PM (#6041153)
Strange play in the Braves/Dback game: Duvall hits a ball that bounces off the RF's glove over the fence for a HR. The umps didn't call it right away, so as Riley is running back to 1st thinking the ball was caught...Duvall passes him.

Ruling: Duvall is out for having passed a runner on the bases. The 3-run HR turns into a 2-run single.
   67. Mike A Posted: September 22, 2021 at 10:01 PM (#6041154)
Double post.
   68. cardsfanboy Posted: September 22, 2021 at 10:03 PM (#6041155)
The Rays clinched a playoff spot, it feels to me that this is pretty late in the season to only have 4 teams that have clinched the playoffs, and none of them have technically clinched a division even. The 85 Win White Sox might be the first team in baseball to clinch a division title technically.
   69. phredbird Posted: September 22, 2021 at 10:03 PM (#6041156)

that was one hard hit ball ...

   72. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 22, 2021 at 10:11 PM (#6041159)
German Marquez with a two-run double that knocks Buehler out if the game. Rox lead 5-3 in the fifth.
   73. cardsfanboy Posted: September 22, 2021 at 10:11 PM (#6041160)
The Brewers outfield doesn't play as deep as the Pirates, but it does feel like they are deeper than average, and with some of the talent they have in the outfield, it really doesn't make sense.
   74. Edmundo got dem ol' Kozma blues again mama Posted: September 22, 2021 at 10:24 PM (#6041163)
Ian Kennedy, closer, brings back late career Jose Mesa/Mitch Williams memories. He gets 2 outs then walks 2, in spite of getting gift strikes.

Edit: it took about 8 pitches but Kennedy got a deep fly ball
   75. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 22, 2021 at 10:26 PM (#6041165)
Two-out, 4-run, 8th-inning rally, capped by Gary Sanchez’s 2-run HR, gives the Yankees a 7-3 lead in 9th.

The Rays clinched a playoff spot, it feels to me that this is pretty late in the season to only have 4 teams that have clinched the playoffs, and none of them have technically clinched a division even.

I'd guess it's pretty standard. Most teams around 151-152 games played so you need to lead your division by more than 10 to have clinched that ... and obviously similar for the 1st WC. I'd guess it's very rare to have both WC cleared up at this point.

In 2019, the Braves played #152 on Sept 17. At that point the Yanks had clinched a tie for the division and the Dodgers were 21 games ahead. Oak was 2 up on TB for the first WC, TB up 0.5 on Cle for the second and Bos still technically alive even for the first WC. In the NL, the Nats were 1.5 up on Milw and the Cubs for the first WC with another 4 teams still technically alive.

Divisional gaps in the AL were 10/5/8; in the NL 9/2/21. This year they are 6/10.5/7.5 and 3/8.5/1.5 ... so mainly it's that somehow the Giants have won more than the Dodgers this year but otherwise pretty similar.

One place there's a difference (maybe) is that last year at this point, 5 of 6 division leaders were over 600 and the 2nd-place A's were at 599; this year, just 2 division leaders and the Dodgers are over 600 ... but Hou is at 596 and the Brewers at 599 so that's not much of a difference.

Unusual stat under the circumstances -- Cleveland is 1 win better in the ALC than the White Sox but trail by 10.5 games.

point to ponder:
it seems to me that, if the Giants take the NL West, it is VERY difficult to rank the MLB teams by most-likely-to-win-the-World-Series

Most people might be consistent in naming the top 7 as a group : LAD, SFG, MIL, TB, HOU, CHW, ATL.
And ATL would probably be #7 is many cases.

I would rank them LAD (even as a WC), HOU, SF, CHW, MIL, TB. But TB could easily be #4 and not #6. ATL #7, BOS #8. But my friends online here could easily have different ideas.

CWS smoking the ball early in a possible clincher.


The trouble with ranking the Dodgers with the best chance at the WS is that they have to escape the play in game. If you say that, in a vacuum, SF has a 20% chance to win the series and the Dodgers a 24% chance (just throwing numbers out there), you then have to multiply the 24 by .6, which is a huge blow.

And I think having to play that game has to lower their odds a little if they advance.


OTOH, having not really watched the Giants much, I just can't believe that W/L record is really them. But that's irrational.

Weird how the ball is carrying so much better in the top half of innings than the bottom.
   83. bunyon Posted: September 23, 2021 at 03:58 PM (#6041331)
White Sox clinch.

Max Scherzer gave up six runs in his first 58 innings with the Dodgers. He's given up three runs in his first two innings against the Rockies today.

Cardinals take a 7-5 lead after being behind 5-0
   86. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 23, 2021 at 05:09 PM (#6041345)
Max Scherzer's first nine starts with the Dodgers: five earned runs allowed
Max Scherzer's start against the Rockies today: five earned runs allowed (so far)

Goldy with his second homerun of the game to make it 8-5.
   88. cardsfanboy Posted: September 23, 2021 at 05:43 PM (#6041352)
12 in a row.

well i'll be ...

i turned on the game for a minute and found that the cardinals were reverting to form, providing waino with no run support after killing the brewers for three straight games. i decided to skip over to the youtubeTV library and cue up another installment of burns' muhammad ali documentary, which i HIGHLY RECOMMEND, and watched it ... then i just checked the game score.

that's what i get for bailing out.

go cards.

That second homerun by Goldy was hilarious, neither Cain nor Yelich even moved off of their spot.

And the Cardinals victory mathematically eliminates the Rockies, finally. It took a lot longer than I expected
   92. Hombre Brotani Posted: September 23, 2021 at 07:13 PM (#6041373)
The Rockies would have just eliminated themselves. They drop one in extras to the Dodgers, who keep the pressure on San Fran.

Jesus H. Christ, those damned LA Todgers are the scummiest, crappiest #### team in the history of baseball.
Be ashamed, if you consider yourself a fan of that monkey team of unfair ########.
Digging up the mound area for Treinen, that loser, in the 10th inning. Taking the momentum out of the Rockies comeback.
Shame, shame and shame³ ! I hope they die in a plane crash !

Baseball doesn't need this CRAP !
   94. Hombre Brotani Posted: September 23, 2021 at 08:22 PM (#6041383)
Dodgers win in extras, Giants lose in extras. This is a fun race.

yep

NL WEST

The day started with Juan Soto leading the NL in Batting Average, 321 to .318 for Trea Turner. Turner then went 3-for-4 in his day game, to also reach .321, and lead by a hair when going out a few more decimals. So far Soto has responded tonight with a BB, single & HR, pushing his BA to .323, to go along with his .469 OBP & .552 SLG (1.021 OPS). That HR is # 28 of the season, and # 97 of his career, tying him with Bryce Harper for 7th on the Age-22 Career HR Leaderboard. Next up: Mike Trout & Frank Robinson with 98. Nationals lead 2-0 over Reds.

EDIT: That didn’t take long: HR # 29 for Soto. At the pace he is on for September, he may finish the month as the unanimous MVP.

I assume that last statement is hyperbole. 'Cause it ain't reality.

Ronald Torreyes hits a 3 run HR to put the Phils up 8-6, completing a comeback from 6-0.

Torreyes had a number of key hits in June/July only to revert to the mean for the last 6 weeks. It’s good to see; he’s been a likable player.
   99. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: September 23, 2021 at 09:40 PM (#6041398)
he may finish the month as the unanimous MVP.


Probs not, but if he wins the batting title, gets the 100rbi and neither Phillies not the Padres make the playoffs...then Soto is winning it in a close vote.
