|Apr-19-17|| ||Phony Benoni: Not Willie Mays.
|Apr-19-17|| ||Penguincw: Yay, Jays win for the 3rd time this season, improving to 3-11 on the year. Every other team though has reached at least 5 wins already.|
Still, step in the right direction.
|Apr-19-17|| ||WannaBe: Kershaw just gave up a run at the top of the first...|
|Apr-20-17|| ||WannaBe: TB fans yelling Got It distracts Tigers players.|
|Apr-20-17|| ||OhioChessFan: There's no way to stop it, but I think there are some safety issues involved. Of course, the next TB game on the road, the same thing will happen.|
|Apr-20-17|| ||saffuna: "Yo la tengo!" From the 62 Mets.
In "The Glory of the Times," one of the players, can't remember the name, played rightfield with Dummy Hoy in center.
Their arrangement was that if Hoy wanted to take the fly he would sort of grunt out something like Chewbacca. If he didn't make any noise, the rightfielder was supposed to take it.
|Apr-20-17|| ||Penguincw: < TB fans yelling Got It distracts Tigers players. >|
Verbal interference? Well, I'd be pretty angry if that happened to my team, even though it's not as bad as a fan in the front row blowing a whistle at an NBA game (which has happened before).
I love how Ausmus secretly takes shots at Tampa: < "He said the sparse crowd at Tropicana Field (the announced crowd was 12,281)..." >, < "Most of the time, when you have a decent-sized crowd,..." > (although still valid points).
|Apr-21-17|| ||saffuna: Oops. Correct title is "The Glory of Their Times." A brilliant book. Some of the individual stories told by ex-players would make outstanding short stories.|
|Apr-21-17|| ||Penguincw: Looks like Trevor Bauer isn't the only one that does dangerous activities during off days:|
Devastating blow for the Giants, although I think they have enough depth to cover for MadBum while he's gone (even if it's only 2 starts).
While a lot of teams will enjoy Bumgarner's absence (even if it's only 2), he is a fun player to watch, on the mound and at the plate. I hope he recovers quickly.

|Apr-22-17|| ||saffuna: Something happening in Cincinnati....
Yes, 7-4 Cubs in the TOP of the second.
Five home runs already, including a Rizzo grand slam.
Could be one of those 15-12 games.
|Apr-22-17|| ||saffuna: Anyone have an idea?
Record for most runs scored in an inning without an extra-base hit.
|Apr-22-17|| ||Phony Benoni: <MissScarlett>: Many thanks.|
|Apr-24-17|| ||WannaBe: 10-1 Cubs leading Pirates, top 6th, empty stadium...|
|Apr-25-17|| ||WannaBe: DET putting on a major hurt on SEA, knocked out F. Hernandez early.|
One day after a blow out, Chicago/Pittsburgh in a pitching duel. 1-0 Cubbies, top 8th.
|Apr-26-17|| ||Penguincw: Desperate times calls for desperate measures, check out this play:|
And it mattered in the end, as it took the Jays 'til extras to win.
Meanwhile, Kershaw and the Dodgers leading the Giants 2-1 currently, in a game MadBum would've started.
|Apr-26-17|| ||OhioChessFan: I tried to google the runs without an extra base hit and couldn't come up with it. I'd guess maybe 12.|
|Apr-26-17|| ||Phony Benoni: Tigers haven't been hitting all year, and now have four starters on various disabled lists including Miguel Cabrera.|
So they score 13 on Sunday and 19 last night. Baseball is wonderful.
|Apr-26-17|| ||WannaBe: Just goes to show, you need to put more players on DL.|
|Apr-26-17|| ||Phony Benoni: Naw. It just goes to show that if you can get to many teams' middle relievers, your batting average is going up.|
|Apr-26-17|| ||Phony Benoni: Yeah, it figures. Tigers got shut out tonight.|
|Apr-27-17|| ||WannaBe: Toronto's bullpen blooooooooows another game. 8-4 final 11 innings.|
|Apr-27-17|| ||Travis Bickle: Yo Phony, Damn, the Bears GM Ryan Pace outright blew the #3 pick!! Imbecile, Ryan Pace screwed up taking Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina.. There is an overabundance of defensive studs & even better quarterbacks than GM Pace selected.. Plus Pace already signed tampa's bum Mike Glennon for 15 mil. for a season..? |
Not only did Screwhead Pace ruin the Bears draft taking an inexperienced QB, but he traded up with San Fran & lost picks!?? That is incredibly stupid!!! I would rather see Cubs GM Theo Epstein run the Bears draft. : O
A Bears team that finished 3-13 last season that needs eveything but a clip board holding QB!!
Well after this horrendous season I hope GM Pace & old man Marine talking jackass John Fox get the BOOT!!
|Apr-28-17|| ||WannaBe: That would be 1 unassisted DP. (Still waiting for that 1 unassisted TP)|
Even stranger coincidence, the last A's pitcher to do it, was in the stands watching!
|Apr-29-17|| ||WannaBe: Looks like they did break up them Reds. 4 game losing streak and 2-8 for their last 10 games.|
