|Apr-14-17|| ||saffuna: The Giants in the 60s also sometimes had Hiller, Haller and Miller all playing at the same time, leading to this refrain: |
<Cepeda runs to field the ball and Hiller covers first
Howard runs to back up Hiller, Hiller crashes into Miller
Miller falls, drops the ball and Conlan calls "safe!" Stu Miller throws
Cepeda runs to field the ball and Hiller covers first
Haller runs to back up Hiller, Hiller crashes into Miller
Miller falls, drops the ball and Conlan calls "safe!"
Yeah Maury! >
|Apr-14-17|| ||WannaBe: Personally, <I> think Beesball is fine, the way it is.|
But now with review/replay, Bobby Cox's record for most ejections will never be broken. =((
|Apr-15-17|| ||WannaBe: ARZ 0 @ LAD 7 bottom 8th.
Kershaw: 8IP 2H 0R 0ER 1BB 7K 87Pitches 62 for strikes.
HE GAVE UP 2 HITS?!?! Send him back to AA-ball.
|Apr-15-17|| ||WannaBe: Break up them Reds!!!|
|Apr-15-17|| ||Penguincw: Yay! Jays win again, now improve to 2-9 on the season. Almost thought they'd blow it, but they hung on. For once swinging for the fences works.|
The Jays become the 30th team of the season to 2 wins, and will also become the 30th team to 3 wins, when/if they reach it.
Will the other 2 (3 if you include TFC of Major League Soccer) Toronto teams win today as well?
|Apr-18-17|| ||WannaBe: Here's a minor oddity, don't see this very often:|
Check out the line for LAD's Avilan:
1/3IP 1H 0R 0ER 1BB 1K 7 pitches, 4 for strike. I know what you are asking, how is this possible?
Did he take over a batter in mid-count for the previous pitcher? No, he did not.
Avilan entered the game with 2 outs, man on first, gave up a triple (1H), IBB next guy (now, remember, you don't need to "walk" the batter anymore, just give a sign and he takes first base). Struck out the next batter (1/3IP)
This new IBB rule will create some rather interesting box scores. I look forward to seeing something like this:
1/3IP 1H 1R 1ER 1BB 1 pitch, 1 pitch for strike. Now, figure out how this can happen!
|Apr-18-17|| ||keypusher: <saffuna: I heard on the Red Sox broadcast today that Chris Sale has the best strikeout-to-walk ratio in history for a pitcher with 1000 innings. 1250 Ks, 260 BBs. Very impressive, I had no idea.
Next on the list are Schilling, Bumgarner, Pedro, Rivera and Kershaw.|
Nolan Ryan checks in at #300 at 2.04.>
Would not have guessed that all the top spots would be held by modern pitchers, but maybe I should have? I guess strikeouts have increased by more than BB over time.
Walter Johnson is 2.57 (3509/1363).
|Apr-18-17|| ||WannaBe: S. Marte of Pittsburgh Pirates suspended 80 games!!|
|Apr-19-17|| ||WannaBe: Sumthin' funny going on in Seattle!!|
|Apr-19-17|| ||WannaBe: Nevermind...|
|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.

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...|
