|Aug-29-15|| ||WannaBe: Never mind...|
|Aug-29-15|| ||WannaBe: CHI-LAD will start soon, I hope for a good game, and <Travis Bickle> have plenty of Pabst Blue!!|
|Aug-29-15|| ||WannaBe: Cubs are on the board first, interesting that there's an ump named Gibson in this series, Greg.|
In the St.L-SFG series, there's an ump named Tripp Gibson, who last night, was the home plate ump.
And whenever Miller (SFG radio play-by-pay) said "Gibson", I keep thinking Kirk.
Man, there's a lot of Gibsons in the league, didn't know they had a monopoly on MLB umpires.
|Aug-29-15|| ||WannaBe: Breakin' News: Montana (#12 in FCS A.K.A. DI-AA) just defeated North Dakota State (#1 FCS, 4-Time defending Champ).|
Reaction: I'm gonna take the points and bet the house on Virginia Tech Hokies when Ohio State visits Blacksburg two Mondays from now.
|Aug-30-15|| ||Penguincw: Almost forgot to mention that the Yankees beat Atlanta 3-1. No fair that the Yankees get to face a weaker team...|
|Aug-30-15|| ||keypusher: <Penguincw: Almost forgot to mention that the Yankees beat Atlanta 3-1. No fair that the Yankees get to face a weaker team...>|
Pretty sure these things even out over 162 games.
|Aug-30-15|| ||Phony Benoni: <keypusher> No, they don't even out. The Yankees always have an easier schedule, because they don't have to play the Yankees.|
|Aug-30-15|| ||WannaBe: That was quick, 2-0 Cubbies...|
|Aug-30-15|| ||Travis Bickle: <WannaBe> We need a strong performance from Arrieta because are bats have gone dead!|
|Aug-30-15|| ||WannaBe: Teams got to dread the West Coast road trips where stops include LA, SF.|
Two teams that always have pitching and visitors have to deal with time zone changes.
Games that starts at 7PM but your body says 10.
|Aug-30-15|| ||perfidious: <WannaBe> The opposite of the late 1970s in the AL when East powers NY, Boston and Baltimore got to feast on expansion Seattle, post-fire sale Oakland and the usually so-so Angels.|
|Aug-30-15|| ||Penguincw: < Penguincw: No fair that the Yankees get to face a weaker team... >|
Alright, I take that back. Rough calculations indicate Toronto has faced teams playing 0.496 baseball so far, while the Yankees are facing 0.503 clubs.
But when I saw the Yankees were visiting Atlanta for the weekend, I felt like it was certain the Yankees were pulling off a sweep, and they did, outscoring them 38-10. Last weekend, the Jays outscored the Angels 36-10. :| This weekend, 29-6, not bad though.
|Aug-30-15|| ||WannaBe: Yeah, yeah, yeah... People will always complain about the schedule.|
"Why do we get Toronto after they get so-and-so?", "Why did my draw have me playing black against Anand, So, and Topalov in the second half of Sequenfeld Cup?", "Why the Raiders have to face Green Bay this season?", blah, blah, blah...
|Aug-30-15|| ||WannaBe: Apparently, there is something called "A No-Hitter" going on in Los Angeles.|
Anyone have any idea what the heck that is?
|Aug-30-15|| ||WannaBe: I wonder if that 2-run HR in the first inning will be all the runs scored in this game.|
And I wonder how many Pabst <travis bickle> have left. I can use a few right now.
|Aug-30-15|| ||WannaBe: Alright, 3 more outs for them LA Bums...|
|Aug-30-15|| ||WannaBe: 2 more outs...|
|Aug-30-15|| ||WannaBe: One more out...|
|Aug-30-15|| ||WannaBe: Another No-No. Arrieta struck out the side in the 9th!!|
|Aug-30-15|| ||Travis Bickle: Yo WannaBe, like I said we really needed a shutout by Arrieta because The Cubs aren't really scoring much... ; P|
|Aug-30-15|| ||Travis Bickle: I still have 5 Pabst left LOL!|
|Aug-30-15|| ||WannaBe: <Travis Bickle> I hope you have a lot of Pabst left, because I think I can drink a 12-pack by meself. Ugh!!|
|Aug-30-15|| ||WannaBe: Alright, with the latest no-no, it's time for some beeeesball trivia!!|
1. This year, the Cubs have be on both sides of a No-No. Name the last team to be no-hit and thrown a no-hitter in the same season. (The order of the no-no does not matter... You can not no-hit then throw one, or throw one then no-hit...)
2. Name the last pitcher to have thrown the last No-No of a season, and <THEN> throw the first No-No of the next season.
3. Dodgers was no-hit by Houston on August 21st, and then by Chicago Cubs on the 30th, (9-days, or 10. I don't care).
Which team still held record of fewest days between being no-hit??
|Aug-30-15|| ||Travis Bickle: Mr Wabbit, I only have 4 of these Pabst's left now... I'm sure Phony or Jim Bartle could answer those questions... ; P|
|Aug-31-15|| ||Penguincw: Jake Arrieta, probably the most underrated pitcher in baseball.|
Anyway, I want to Google that baseball trivia, but won't (I promise). But I'll do some guessing anyway:
1. Phillies or Dodgers.
3. Did Johnny van Meer no-hit the same team in his back-to-back no hitters? Anyway, I remember reading on Wikipedia years ago that some team got no-hit in back-to-back <days>, but not back-to-back <games> (double header). Random guesses, Giants, Dodgers and/or Cubs.
