|Aug-01-17|| ||Penguincw: At least Gio still got the win. A few weeks ago, leading 1-0, Scherzer after pitching 7.1 IP of no-hit ball, gave up a hit, then an error, then a hit by pitch, wild pitch, and then another hit. He took the loss in a 2-1 defeat to MIA.|
But nice tribute by Gonzalez to his late friend, Jose Fernandez on his birthday (Gonzalez grew up in the area).
|Aug-01-17|| ||takchess: Boston really misses Ortiz without anyone stepping up to fill the void. Our sports radio is in a big brouhaha about David Price being a jerk to Dennis Eckersley (announcer ) on a flight. Of course a winning streak would fix that but it is viewed that Boston did poorly at the trading deadline.|
|Aug-01-17|| ||WannaBe: CLE Jackson's catch and falling into the 'pen, the company that I work for logo all over the place. =))|
Oh, yeah, I give the catch A++++++, too.
|Aug-02-17|| ||WannaBe: Checking the box score from last night's CLE/BOS game:|
Shaw, 1/3 IP 3H 3R 3ER <AND HE GOT CREDIT FOR A HOLD>??
|Aug-02-17|| ||saffuna: Jackson catch, Vasquez homer, big deal...
What about Lester's homer?

|Aug-02-17|| ||Penguincw: Speaking of that ARI-CHC game, CHC won 16-4, Montgomery with the save. He entered the game up 8-3, pitched 3 innings, that's a save.|
|Aug-03-17|| ||WannaBe: Lookin' at the box score of OAK@SFG last night.|
Lead off hitters that don't take (a lot of) pitches. Drives me nuts.
Raja Davis, 5AB 0H 0BB 1K. How many pitches he saw? 14, <14>!! That 1K is 3 pitches (at least), which mean his 4 other AB he saw a total of 11 pitches.
Denard Span, 4AB 1H 0BB 0K, 10 pitches. Ugh!
Oh, also, I just realized OAK have a pitcher named Dull. Hopefully it's never a Dull moment when he's on the mound.
|Aug-03-17|| ||WannaBe: DET@BAL top second, DET grounded into TP, Third to Second to First.|
Nothing unusual, nothing to to see there, please disperse. Keep moving along, no run scored on the TP... =)
|Aug-04-17|| ||perfidious: <WannaBe....Again, 5 NL and 5 AL in both top 10 and bottom 10, but with DH, does not one think that AL would generate more runs?>|
Overall the AL should, but the list points up one weak offensive team: White Sox play in a park which favours the hitter, yet do not score many runs.
No surprise at all to see all those West Coast teams in the bottom eight in runs scored: the western parks help pitchers, which makes Dodgers' numbers in RS an anomaly for them.
|Aug-05-17|| ||WannaBe: LAD@NYM all runs so far came via the long ball. 9 HRs so far... Souvenier ball night at Citi Field.|
|Aug-05-17|| ||WannaBe: Game over. Official now. All runs came on homers|
Seen a fair share of 1-0 games that was HR, but not a 7-4 game.
|Aug-07-17|| ||WannaBe: Don Baylor died. =(|
|Aug-09-17|| ||WannaBe: I think mine would/should say "JINX"
|Aug-09-17|| ||WannaBe: Dollar store, everything must go. (Or player...)|
|Aug-14-17|| ||Penguincw: On Saturday the Jays started Chris Rowley, a guy who once served in the military. He got the win.|
This reminds me of Steve Delabar. Many years ago, he was a supply teacher, but the Jays got him, and turned him into a relief pitcher (even an All Star).
Ah, the Jays, taking guys with non-baseball jobs, and using them as baseball players.
|Aug-14-17|| ||Penguincw: Red Sox rally to beat the Yankees, 3-2 in 10 innings. Sunday night game, lasted 3:40 (not too bad).|
I'm not the only one who noticed this, but Judge is really struggling since the All-Star break. I'm not too surprised however, as I've seen a lot of guys with good first halves, and then just fade away in the second half (Home Run Derby can be to blamed).
Though I don't think the fact that Judge has struck out in all 28 of his games since the ASG is very appealing...
I see the Yankees put their DH onto the field, but no pitcher had to bat.
|Aug-14-17|| ||saffuna: <I'm not the only one who noticed this, but Judge is really struggling since the All-Star break.>|
Well, outfielders keep jumping over the fences and stealing his home runs.
|Aug-14-17|| ||WannaBe: I've seen 5 infielders before (many a-times when you try to get a force play with one of the OF playing infield to stop a ground ball...), but 4 outfielders?|
|Aug-14-17|| ||WannaBe: This gotta be a first, ATL@COL bottom 8th, 0-0...|
Somebody at ESPN please tell me when was the last time a game was scoreless in the 8th (top/bottom) in Colorado?!!? In Colorado, for crissake...
(Yes, I know that H. Nomo threw a no-no in Colorado...)
|Aug-15-17|| ||WannaBe: Here's more on that 4-men outfield:
|Aug-15-17|| ||WannaBe: Ya know, I've watched a lot of play-off hockey, and I mean <A LOT>. Whether it's first round, or the Stanley Cup Finals game 7, once a team is eliminated, the losing team will stay on the bench and then form line to shake hands with the winning team.|
The worst, of course, have to be the Cup Final, winning team throws off their gloves, drops their stick, people on the bench are jumping onto the ice to mob each other, while the losing team just stares at the celebration.
Baseball is different...
|Aug-15-17|| ||WannaBe: BoSox turned 5-4-3 Triple Play tonight vs StL, no run scored, so nothing to see here... Run of the mill variety TP. |
Everyone just carry on as you were. =))
|Aug-16-17|| ||WannaBe: White Sox have a relieve pitcher on the team, his namw?? Aaron Bummer. =)|
|Aug-16-17|| ||saffuna: si.com: <The Dodgers hit that mark for the first time since September 1953 with a come-from-behind 6-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.>|
Today's brain-twister: How many runs were the Dodgers losing by?
