My O's on a 2 game winning streak come home to face the Evil Empire Yankees. I would love to take a trip down if I could convince the Mrs.
You all watch Nick Markakis much? he is our shining star. Such a solid player with an obvious high baseball IQ.
Many players have talent, but the smarts? That's a rare gift indeed. When you see guys making the 1st out at third, and throwing home to try and nab a runner that means nothing while allowing the tying run to get to scoring position, it can make you crazy. these are things taught in LL!

Same thing last night, only less (9,000, Cleve. at KC)
it's like a ski area I guess -- no one goes during the week, then bombed weekends -- even this probably wouldn't sell out weekends though, that's Cardinals territory

Play on, Sox

Wow. Just got an email from the old man. They've been trying for two years to sell their house and property, a small ranch north of San Antonio. Billy Martin, Jr came out yesterday to take a look at the property! He's a sports agent out of Arlington who is partnered with Phil Pepe's son. Hope he pulls the trigger.

Obviously that will come back to bite them at some point.

I heard MLB tonight last night talking bout the Yankees, and how they are not "hitting".
Only Home Runs, and that will come back to bite them.
So today, I think Arod and Texiera should bunt the runners over..show them they can play small ball.
Think you can do that, ...please.

Red Sox 1st 8 games: 1-7
Red Sox last 8 games: 7-1

Starting pitching has come around. DiceK just 2 hits and 0 runs on last 2 starts (15 innings)...didn't see that coming but I'll take it.

What a Bruins game last night!

Happy Easter!

Baseball medicine -- it's the most burgeoning field there is

here's the newest baseball injury
after consulting the best minds in the field (of baseball medicine), a new term has come up to go along with the obliques, hamate bones, hip flexors etc

Seattle's Franklin Guttierez
out indefinitely with "Irritable Bowel Sundrome" (according to the paper -- no not the toilet paper)

Among mortal humans, this would be hemerroids maybe?? (I have no idea, have never heard of this before) -- or some sort of constipation?

It's a big pain in the ass for Mr. Gutierrez -- not for the bozo who's probably paid $70-$80G to come up with these terms


on a happier note, good to see Justin Morneau starting to swing the bat for the Twins

most of all, go Sox -- wish we could play LAAA all the time

diarrea I guess --
have never heard it referred to as "irritable bowel syndrome" before -- many new terms pop up in baseball medicine, such as Kaz Matsui's "anal fissure" from a few years ago, the "inflammation of the heart lining" someone got last year, the "bilateral leg weakness" that's sidelined Joe Mauer -- and on & on...

Ivan deJesus tearing his ACL 2 years ago while putting on his shin guard in the on-deck circle -- the Cubs' Derrek Lee going on the DL after his teammates congratulated him too vigorously after hitting a HR, injuring his neck...

any nick or ding makes it tough to take the field -- that's the nature of modern-day baseball -- there haven't been as many "strained hip flexors" so far this year as in the past though, that's good -- I agree, if I had the sh!ts I wouldn't wanna be out there -- maybe "irritable bowel syndrome" is baseball lingo for flaming-sh!t syndrome -- now those are not fun -- when it feels like your crack is on fire while sitting on the pot -- had it a few times before, thankfully it never lasted very long (a day, maybe 2)

go Sox -- I told ya we'd be fine -- healing vibes to all you MLBers

Very good read in this morning's paper (headline "Good Seats Available")

more shocking than the decline in attendance, is the population decline -- the article focuses in on Rust Belt cities Pittsburgh, Detroit, Cleveland and Cincinnati

the economic climate is in such decline in these cities & the midwest in general, the article says, that it's had a direct effect on attendance at the 4 parks -- it's a well researched read

it won't be long before the Twins experience a drop in attendance -- they sold out a Thursday afternoon game yesterday, now that is a loyal fan base -- same last night too

but even the most loyal fans can't go if they haven't the $ to do so -- in combination with the fact that half the team is injured & they're getting blown out most of the time, even Twins fans will have to ? whether their hard-earned $ is worth spending at the ballpark


there's another blurb in the paper, one that IMO also contributes to keeping people away from the park
"A battery of tests on NNY pitcher Phil Hughes revealed a low-level risk of thoracic outlet syndrome -- he will now see a specialist"

I'm Sure It's Legit -- but it's still in all more of the same -- dammit if it's a LOW-LEVEL risk then why does he have to go see a specialist -- everyday people walk around with worse maladies than that, plus the average person would never receive the incredible care Hughes is getting w/the "battery of tests" -- no average fan can relate to that

also in today's paper, today's designer-MLB injury
Cardinals SS Ryan Theriot, out the last 3 games
because of "a tug in his right ribcage area"

A "tug"????????? -- I mean you're **** tin' me right?
Tug McGraw would not be impressed

guaranteed contracts, multi-millionaires one & all -- & the biggest wimps in sports

I love you Red Sox -- they can do no wrong

This does not effect his everyday life. If you or I had it, it would be no big deal.
But we arent paid to throw a ball 95+ MPH as Phil is

There may be a better spot to post this (i.e. a "Fire" interview), but it should at least be appreciated here! I've said it before, but.....there are some awesome genes in that family tree!

Virgil Trucks likes company in Tigers' double no-hitter club
03:43 PMPrint Share

Comment



Recommend By John Lowe, Detroit Free Press

A caller from Detroit broke the news to Virgil Trucks about what Justin Verlander had just done in Toronto.

Detroit Tigers' Virgil Trucks holds ball in the Yankee Stadium dressing room after throwing a no-hitter on August 25, 1952.CAPTIONBy Lindsay, AP
"That's great," Trucks said. "I'm glad to hear it. Give him my congratulations."

Until Saturday, Trucks, now 94, had been the only pitcher to throw two no-hitters for the Tigers. He threw both in 1952.

With their two no-hitters apiece, Verlander and Trucks account for more than half of the seven no-hitters thrown by Tigers pitchers.

Throughout Saturday's phone interview from his home in Calera, Ala., Trucks showed no dismay at having just learned his club record for no-hitters had been matched. He even sounded eager to have it broken.

"If he has a good change-up, he might throw another no-hitter," Trucks said.

Trucks was thinking about Verlander's change-up when he watched his previous start on ESPN, Monday night against the Yankees. In that one, Verlander lasted six innings and threw a whopping 127 pitches.

"He's got a good fastball in the high 90s," Trucks said. "I don't know why he's getting mistreated."

By "mistreated," Trucks referred to the enigma that Verlander's season had become before Satruday. Although he hadn't gotten crushed in any game, he had only a few times pitched with dominance into the late innings, as he often has in the past.

Then Trucks offered a reason for that. He said that Monday night Verlander didn't appear to throw his change-up with the same motion as his fastball. If he can throw both with the same motion, Trucks said, then even great hitters become forced to take the change-up for a strike because they are so geared to hit Verlander's overwhelming fastball.

During his first answer in his first interview after his no-hitter Saturday, Verlander told Fox Sports Detroit's Trevor Thompson, "My change-up was really good."

Trucks' two no-hitters represented his first and final victories in a year in which he won only three other games. He went 5-19 for that those 1952 Tigers, who finished last with a record of 50-104. Run support was scarce; Trucks won both his no-hitters 1-0.

Trucks' first no-hitter came at home on May 15, 1952, at Briggs Stadium against Washington. He won on Vic Wertz's two-out homer in the bottom of the ninth.

Three months later, on Aug. 25 at Yankee Stadium, Trucks no-hit Casey Stengel's Yankees, who were en route to their fourth straight pennant.

Dozens of big-league pitchers have thrown a no-hitter. But only 30, according to STATS LLC, have thrown more than one.

"It's sort of a select group," said Trucks, who has belonged to that group for 59 years and who was thrilled Saturday to welcome its newest member.
