The Pawtucket Clam Eaters
if right is right, they'll wear their vintage Clam Eaters uniforms in 2020, their last year in Pawtucket -- too bomb, as is that website
the Decatur Commies? -- 1950 was the McCarthy era/height of anti-communist fervor, & commies were considered The Enemy -- didn't think the Dirtbags would have any competition, but they do
"ya commie bastids, go back to Russia!" -- Commies might've heard that plenty -- even in Decatur

drawing a blank -- don't think Joe McCarthy managed the Redlegs, that's a stab in the dark tho -- same Dowdy Finklen Stadium -- I like that bettah than all the corporately-sponsored names nowadays, as nice as the stadiums indeed are

slight change in topic -- Vinegar Bend Mizell?
Cards fans well remembr the LHP's Sept 1 1958 gem -- hailed from Vinegar Bend, ALA
Vinegar Bend -- hadn't heard of him before -- he was full of piss & vinegar on that day, establishing an NL record by walking nine batters without giving up a run.

The things you learn -- Vinegar Bend was 13-5 on the 1960 world champion Pirates -- shocked I never heard of this guy -- 90-88 in career, then moved to NC where he became a congressman

Corey Kluber has a very good chance at 20 wins, he has KC 2nite for # 18 -- Severino also tries for 18th 2nite but Oak is a different kettle of fish -- the Kansas City Athletics they aren't , altho Royales 8-2 L10

it's deja vu all over again -- like 1978, 1 of the top 2 teams will go home early -- they're missing Judge, Chapman & Gregorius -- it'sa bad Sale Price right now for us (they're expected back shortly)

Astros won WS & are right there as we get ready for them this wknd -- gritty veteran Verlander goes 2nite, he hasn't had a good 2nd half -- same Felix, & Seattle looking unlikely for postseason -- they won 18 of 23 earlier this season, TB set to overtake them now -- in July Tampa was 15 games behind M's

BOSTON RED SOX

Ha Ha! You misunderstood. Not Joe, the Yankee Manager, I meant Joseph McCarthy who was a senator in the 50s who tried to convince the world that everyone was a Communist. Since the color red was associated with Communism, Cincinnati changed their name from the Red to the Redlegs for a few years. That's what I meant.

It's weird how times change, and reminds you how old baseball is. The Decatur Commodores were founded in 1900, before any "Red" communist scares in the decades later, so "Commie" wasn't any more strange than "Bridegrooms" or "Red Leg". The Decatur Commodores briefly shared a stadium with the town's football team, the Decatur Staleys, who eventually moved to Chicago and changed their name to "Bears".

What shock -- highly touted Ohtani shows up, immediately hurts his arm as only MLB pitchers do, & now, with all of 51 IP under his belt -- to undergo Tommy John surgery -- (then he goes & hits a HR) -- they all opt for it, even pitching 6 innings or so every 4-5 days, & Even That Is Becoming Considered Too Much & Gradually Phased Out -- it's a huge change in bball

Clay is on a tear -- 2 runs over last 17 innings -- came out aftr the 5th inning his last start -- they followed that using 6 relievers over the final 4 innings -- the strategic benefit of that approach eludes me but they wouldn't be doing it etc etc etc

pitch counts are the most injurious thing to ever happen to pitchers -- the record proves it

The LF never moved a muscle, OMGosh what a laser rip that was -- by hometown (anti)-hero Brandon Phillips, capping mad Sox rally

catchers Christian Vasquez back for us, Sanchez for them, key -- huge series', Houston, & they're in Seattle -- David Starts Tmrw Nite -- still no word on Chris -- no McCullers no sweat for them, he's oft-injured anyway & out frequently -- they're right on NY's heels

playoffs have begun for Bucs, SF & Wash -- still mathematically alive but it's must-win time -- Bucs have Miami this wknd, that's favorable -- Stephen makes an appearance 2nite vs. league-leading Cubs, yep 6 IP of polished professional pitching in store -- & Cubs win late

wattabout that rally -- the team is deep & well balanced -- Dave Dombrowski has done a great job with the budget he's had to work with -- (read, blank check ) -- howaboutitBOSOX

it'd be cool to see the 1968 WS acknowledged this wknd w/StL in Detroit -- 31 game winner McLain vs. glowering Bob Gibson of the 1.12 ERA -- still probly the greatest most-anticipated ever

Mookie & JD, tied at .335 -- David & Gerritt Cole a combined 27-11 going into 2nite -- Tanaka & Paxton a combined 21-10

Snell of TB gets 18th win 2nite, Carrasco likely # 17 & that Tribe pitching -- Michael Brantley has finally played a full season
smug, holier-than-thou, know-nothing SCHMUCKS can take away Chief Wahoo but he lives on in the real fans -- his drum is the heartbeat of the Tribe -- team & fans

now it's Colo (W5), & AZ is slumping - div playoffs begin for Rockies, they have Dodgiz this wknd, D-backs aftr that
AZ used 8 pitchers vs. Atlnta last night, so did Braves

Phils suddenly skidding outta contention........SO WHAT, A TV audience of millions will see Rick & a team at his/their peak on TV Sund nite -- it's no wonder SOX fans are everywhere, they certainly were in Atlnta -- esp when Brandon Phillips crushed that HR Wed. nite -- he's from there & was a noted HS athlete in the Atlanta area

playoff atmosphere w/autumn in the air at Fenway (heat wave is over) -- we have to do good against them, we'll likely see them again

Looking forward to seeing how the N.L. Wild Card race finishes. I've liked the Dodgers for a while now. We'll see how the N.L. West ends. Anything can happen with the three teams involved.

L.A., Ariz & Colo are all playing it out against each other.

Milwaukee and St. Louis trying to catch the Cubs is fun and the three teams play each other six times. Plus the Cards play L.A. three times.

I think the A.L. is pretty much set. Too bad for Seattle. They had a really good season.

Cool, ups to Tigers (feuding announcers & all )
"The Tigers are celebrating the 50th anniversary of their 1968 World Series win over the Cardinals during the weekend series. Five players from the 1968 team threw out first pitches on Friday, and a ceremony will be held before Saturday's game."

Jesus, it's a W5, they're back to .500 & the Pirates still have a pulse -- ya never know**

Tanaka is on a tear -- since All Star game he's fanned 61, walked just 10 -- ERA b4 break was over 4, he's over two runs less since at, I think radio announcers said, 2.23

Let's go Sox

**edit, that's as of 2nite -- thought it was that as of last nite:shaddap:

As good as we've gone this year, Oakland A's deserving of Best Team On The Planet recognition -- four of their pitchers have had Tommy John surgery this year, now their top dog, Manea (shoulder), might miss next season -- yet they're W5 & 4th-best in MLB -- on a shoestring budget (by comparison)

interesting article circulating on internet titled "Why Tommy John Is Against The Surgery That Bears His Name" -- yes it extended his career, John says -- it's now hurting others', especially youth players, he adds

w/no one in attendance, a doozie of a matchup 2nite w/combined 34-13 W-K -- Snell, the probable AL Cy, going for 19th win vs Carlos Carrasco (16-8) -- Severino goes for 18th

holy **** , Wash has a pulse & don't miss it tonite on TV -- Stepheno-no -- takes a no hitter into 7th inning, they get a hit & Stephen exits w/score 2-0 after another new-age doozie, w/Nola (16-4) & Nats lose 4-2

our season ender w/NY likely won't mean much & who woulda thought that -- you can't single any 1 guy out, Everyone doing good -- Xander 4-4 Mon nite, Brock pinch hit HR last nite -- yar

.


Well coaches at youth levels,9-16 age, are pretty damn stupid. I've coached for the last 6 years or so and have pitch counts on my guys, 75-90. I've pulled starters out of championship games after reaching their limit. I have only had 3 kids reach 90 pitches. The wins don't matter that much.

heres some examples if idiocy: 1 kid threw 138 pitches in a 12u championship game and this doesn't include 8-10 warm ups between innings or his pregame throwing. All said he threw about 230 that day. We won the game.
Saw another coach use his in 3 or 4 games over a weekend.

Also had a coach/dad tell me his 9 year old son's "knuckle curve wasn't working today"

damn dumbasses

Its first team remains its winningest.....there should be an asterisk by the record when we rewrite it this year, a la Maris 61HR in 162 games, vs Ruth 60 in 154 etc --

105-47 -- .691 winning % -- 10 fewer games -- in 1912, Fenway's 1st year -- a year that started as the town reeled from the epic Titanic disaster & Boston's role in it in April 1912 -- as word leaked out from the docks & eventually to the newspapers that sailors on the Californian, which had docked in Boston & had been in contact w/the ill-fated ship that night, were saying they saw the distress rockets that were reported to have been fired from the sinking vessel --

the rockets that night were reported to the captain of the Californian & entered into the log, but he took no action & chose not to awaken his wireless operator, & himself went back to sleep after leaving instructions to use morse lamp -- this became a widely debated aspect of the story -- including who first reported it -- both the Clinton Daily Item, and 1 of the many city newspapers from that era, don't remember which, are mentioned

..anyways the year ended ended w/the World Series & watta debut for Fenway Pahk

anyways the 1946 team is next (104-50), then 1915 (101-50)

1906 CUBS -- 116-36, best of all time & a Sox-Cubs WS would be A Doozie w/the huge fan followings
their older fans lament the woeful state of the Orioles, esp when they think of those mid 1960s-early 70s teams -- 109-53 in 1969, 108-54 in 1970 -- 8th & 9th all time

SEPT. 13, 1946
Ted Williams hits the only inside-the-park HR of his career as the Sox beat Cleveland 1-0 & clinch the AL pennant, their 1st since 1918

Whoa Noah -- we see both him & deGrom this wknd, should be Fun to watch -- Noah a 2 hitter for his 1st-ever CG last week -- as the traditional starter/reliever approach gives way to the by-committee approach, these performances are more & more to be appreciated --

Stephen has to be all-down w/the committee approach, no more than 2 IP per start -- that would definitely xtend his career -- they still might groom him as a reliever

very surprised to see Clay sidelined :yaright: -- Colo is in SF, yep picked Giants, but they flopped completely (L11) -- w/no Panda, Buster Posey, Cueto etc etc, no go -- StL-LAD is crucial this wknd, same Oakland-TB

he's had a great career & is the last of a dying breed -- Joe Mauer, all 16 years w/Twins -- it was fun being on their bandwagon when they had that great but unnoticed lineup (2005-11 or so) b4 all the NCIs came along, esp w/Justin Morneau

Yeah back in the day there was Beck, Bogert & Appice
Now we got Betts, Bogaerts & JBJ -- 1/3rd of an incredible squad -- hopefully Chris back to 100% soon, his starts too are by committee as he returns from shoulder inflammation -- would have to think that'd change for playoffs, but There Is No Telling -- but watta team, Let's Go Sox

Brewers and Cubs are both in. Division is still up in the air. Glad to see the Brewers sweep the Cards, who also might still sneak in depending on how the Rockies and Dodgers finish up. Brewers finish up against their former division foe, the Tigers; Cubs finish up against the Cards who are playing for playoffs now.

Yankees and A's both in as well. Has a team with almost 100 wins ever felt like they backed in to the playoffs like the 2018 Yankees? But they seem to have gotten things together in the final month, especially with Judge and Chapman returning. Sanchez is hitting well, but seems to be their Achilles heel when he's behind home plate.

Kind of crazy that an extra game needs to be played when all 4 teams are already in the playoffs; but it is the difference between one and off game and winning the division. Heightens again my belief that 4 teams should qualify and no more one game playoffs. If that was the rule I would advocated for going further down the statistics (to decide the winner) like football does to avoid an extra game. This brings in a few bucks; but to some extent punishes teams like the Cubs and the Brewers who have the best record in their league
