Sawx got all the love at the moment (I don't live in Boston either btw ) -- I mean JD Martinez has become almost as big a monster this year as the Green Monster -- & Andrew Benintendi, a versatile, speedy slugger -- didn't at 1st think he'd become the player he is, another Jacoby Ellsbury in his prime -- people like Kinsler, Swihart, Christian V, Wright waiting to return.......

also, Houston visits Oakland this wknd -- sometimes Oak's stadium capacity is listed at 35,000, but it was more for the Dodgers series -- maybe they open their upper deck or something (last of the "cookie cutter" stadiums?) -- but that's a good race too -- no new word on Altuve, Seattle right there, Felix back in rotation etc etc

StL doing what I was hoping Pirates would be -- Cubs visit Bucs this wknd, Bucs need a sweep to stay in it -- Cards-Milwaukee this wknd, crucial -- suddenly Braves are hot & gaining space on Phils etc etc

MEANWHILE, WE SMOKE -- TB will try that goofball pitching approach (starter goes 1-2 innings), it won't work -- we're all the sh!t this year, let's go Sox

Stanton has certainly turned his season around. I wonder if the Yankee fans are still complaining about them signing him?

I'll take Cleveland and the Cubs in The World Series, although anything can happen of course. Replay 2016.


They're both 71-52 -- make no mistake it's an autumn atmosphere this week, esp tonite w/15-game winners Rick & Kluber --
we haven't hit a rough patch in a long time -- to show how hot we've been, Mookie has gone hitless his last 2 games -- his longest cold stretch of the season

but yes, Cubs in 1st place in NL -- Bucs Are 5 1/2 out In WC w/Atlnta visiting -- heat is on Braves too, they're L4 -- Sawx, Tribe, NY, Oak & Houstn is how it looks rite now in AL --

it's no secret tho, if Felix pitches like Felix & they win-solid tonite, it could ignite a sweep over Houstn putting Seattle right back in it while all eyes are on Fenway

Machado & LAD so-so so far -- my pick SF, wellll, mayb next yr -- CLAY -- a 5-hitter -- his 1st CG since 2015 -- so, w/Grienke, Godley etc, now it's hard to bet against Clay Buchholz, Paul Goldschmidt & ARIZONA in NL West -- Colo is right there

I haven't heard any Yanks fans questioning Stanton since May, and even then it was because Castro had a lot of fans. With Judge out (and Sanchez disappearing), they've certainly need his bat. They are still having an amazing season, well ahead in the WC, if it weren't for Boston having a crazy good season.

Brewers are still in 2nd place with the pesky Cards on their heals. Crew needs to finish strong if they don't retake 1st place since everyone is pretty close.

Cubs get Danial Murphy. Interesting. Not sure exactly why but I suppose it is because Kris Bryant is hurt and they can mover the infield around.

They've shut down Yu Darvish too -- thought Wash had shut down Stephen too, he's back tmrw nite tho, even tho it's likely too late to make any diff

How special was that though -- Oakland's Khris Bryant had a Make A Wish kid sign his jersey, then belted a home run for the kid
In front of all of 9,000 fans -- shame on A's fans, that's one of the top teams in MLB -- they only come on weekends

The Boston Beaneaters, yaman
That's sure a whole lot better than the WooSox -- it should be BooSox
PawSox will mark their 50th anniversary in Pawtucket in 2020, by bidding adieu to move to Worcester in 2021
Brand new stadium, better access etc etc -- it's progress I guess

The Nats are a mess. Yet they have hung onto Harper when he is a free agent after the season. Don't get that at all.

Cards are surging, just passed the Crew. Brewers better wake up.

I was at the Yanks-Marlins game last night. Nice win for the Yanks in extra innings, but injury bug seems to be hovering - Judge, Gregorious, and now possibly Chapman.

bases full, 1 out in the 11th
then bases full 0 out for Miami in 12th -- NY escaped both times -- credit to them, they've played well w/out Judge & Sanchez -- our 2 series next month w/them will be pivotal, obviously

we gotta get a split -- bats have been quiet -- Tribe is for real, we knew that
still too soon to count Bucs, SF or Wash out of the WC -- still wanna see a Stepheno-hitter this season -- 6-7 IP, 0 hits -- mayb 2nite -- also 2nite, Clay goes up against Odrisamer

Let's Go Sox

Yanks have definitely missed Judge and Sanchez's bat, but they're better off with Romine behind the plate.

I dunno. Can't see Bawston blowing their lead.

The schedule is favorable, true -- at 90 wins we're tied w/1912 team for most wins thru 129 games, paper said
Carson Continues To Convalesce -- going into 2019, will have pitched a total of 23.2 innings since arriving in 2015 -- how many 'procedures' can 1 arm take anyway
TYLER -- since his return, 17.1 meticulously if-not medically parceled-out IP over 19 carefully-monitored appearances -- 18 hits, 8 ER, 4.15 ERA

on the field, series du jour, StL & Colo are both WCs right now -- key interleaguer, Seattle visits AZ -- Clay 7-2, 2.25 -- he's had these streaks b4, but then invariably, The Strain -- oft-injured, injury-prone, they all are yadada -- he & the G's, a combined 32-16

Dustin's status is open to debate, the thinking being if his knee hasn't healed up enough by now..........He'll Show Up 2019 Spring Training If Not B4, So Let's Go SAWX

Michael Kopech's tweets of the White Sux from when he was in high school years ago were revealed. Same day as his first start. Interesting timing from someone. Curious to see what the media does with this.

Guess anyone can spin this anyway they want to.

It might come back to haunt him -- he'll probably go in for sensitivity training, even those these tweets were from long ago
What I'd like to know is, why did it take Sox owner John Henry 15 years to become "haunted" by the supposedly-racist legacy of Tom Yawkey -- have lost quite a bit for John Henry

Chris Bosio won't pursue, by the look of it, his wrongful-termination lawsuit against Det. -- he wouldn't have a chance, not when a racial slur was alleged, whether he was in the right or not

The guy who hurt himself last year at ChiSox' stadium, then sued ChiSox saying they were at fault for the injury, has his lawyers together and is pressing charges --
this happened Wed. night with Mitch Moreland at Fenway -- will Mitch sue? You wouldn't think so, but the BoSox have dragged Tom Yawkey's name through the mud too -- the man who owned & loved the Red Sox for some 40 years -- so you never know -- Mitch might wait to see how the ChiSox case is decided

Finally the Gwynn family's lawsuit against the company that made the chew Tony was partial to as he belted the ball for a career .338 average, is set for Sept. 2019

LOOK OUT, NY has a new kid, Voit -- let's go Sawx

They've won 11 of 15 & have pulled into a tie w/Tygz as we visit the south side of Chicago this wknd

The #s don't lie -- Abreu (doubles) -- Anderson (SB) -- & yes, .220 BA & all, Yoan (triples) . all among league leaders

a supposed 'think tank' of baseball geeks, using analytics, sabermetrics etc, did a statistical/computer study a year or 2 ago -- Result it came up with, CHISOX had more good incoming talent than most anybody, in projecting 2019 as a year "they could contend for the pennant" -- a kid named Rutherford was mentioned -- another kid, Jiminez, has torn up Triple A apparently -- Kopech, the reason they traded Sale to us, is the talk of the league

As to Chris, "no timetable on return", get back quick big guy -- David has been on fire the whole 2nd half, let him not be out long -- Eduardo Returns Saturday -- Rick, a horse

NY has played well w/out DidiG as well as Judge & Sanchez -- Houston is going crazy w/Altuve back -- same LAD, suddenly they're W5 going into their own huge wknd series w/AZ -- Oak #1 starter Manea is out -- Seattle fading fast -- so forth so on, the magic of Sept. bball

The Kid, The Splendid Splinter
he called the press corps "the knights of the keyboard"
.388 BA at age 40 in 1958

Ted Williams, Aug. 30 1918-July 5 2002

would be among career top 3 in HR, RBI & hits but for military service -- he & Bob Feller would still be top 3s had they played their whole careers

Yelich hits for the cycle, and Brewers are trailing in 3rd place. Killing me. Cards are always a thorn in their side.

Think I saw the O's have officially been eliminated from playoff contention.

Not that it should surprise anyone. What a mess. I feel bad for Showalter.

Like the names -- the Lehigh Valley Ironpigs , another good one -- there's the Roswell Invaders of the Pecos League -- also the Las Vegas 51s in the PCL -- from Section 51 from the UFO days -- nothing tops the Dirtbags tho -- Yard Goats still 2nd pl

but it's TB-Tribe, -- their new-age pitching approach rotation has panned out, Tampa has played their way into contention, unblievbl --

Seattle-Oakland, Seattle has had a brutal schedule (Houstn, Oaklnd, LAD, Houstn, AZ, then San Diego for 2 games leading into their current series, nasty)
-- Oak's pitching is dinged up tho -- this marquee matchup only drew 10G last nite -- a crucial series for M's

Andrew McC now goes to NY -- meantime we're in hostile windy environment where Chris made his mark (altho only 18G there last nite) --

David will miss next start -- Steven W, who knows, but the same surgeon last year did the knee operations both on he and Dustin -- & both haven't played this year

We Have To At Least Split W/Surging ChiSox & Hold The Fort Until Chris & David Get Back -- we start Sept w/2 tough series against div leaders Atlnta & Houstn
We're Tops This Year, let's go Sox

Every team has to bottom out and clean house every few years it seems. Speaking of, the Royals are also officially eliminated.

Yeah some of those minor league names are really funny. I know a lot of them but some are quite out there.

Regarding your Sawx, I don't think you have anything to worry about. Yanks had a slight chance when they got to within six but I think they just have to settle for having a great record and only making the wildcard.

It's bizarre the season the Yanks are having even though it doesn't feel like victory to have to settle for the WC.
