Too funny -- they're the LBS 49ers, and their baseball team has its own name, the Dirtbags!?!?! Yard Goats now 2nd place

Players from Jered Weaver to Evan Longoria, wlkpdia said, have been/donned the uniform of, Dirtbags -- great one -- also, wlkpddia mentioned "pitcher Dick Nen," he was actually an INF w/Wash Sens --they probly meant Robb Nen

Would think they'd be fair game for the leather lungs at road games -- "ah ya buncha no-good low-life Dirtbags, Get Outta Here!"......

Lug Nuts, a good one too -- around here there's the Lake Monsters -- the NH Fisher Cats (I Think Tor BJays' AA team) -- I believe it's the Lowell River Rats in Mass. -- but the Dirtbags, that's too funny

Didn't even have a towel in the race. Jays are a disaster this year. Prospects coming but one or two 5 stars won;t change much.

The T shirt I purchased from the university says so. They had no problem taking my money. Nickname maybe?

Probably a story behind it I imagine.

would love to have been at Seattle-Houston last nite -- 9 clean innings of errorless baseball w/just 5 pitchers handcuffing hitters/baffling batters in a big game that took just 2:19 -- don't see enough of these games

for the 1st time ever, diminutive-dynamo MVP & top player today, Jose Altuve to DL -- they'll feel that obviously, but they've also done well w/out C. Correa -- if Seattle wins next 2, & there's a good chance of it, even w/no King Felix -- it's a new race -- Oakland still right there

Felix has, however, been hammered his last 2-3 starts & now might become spot starter w/ Erasmus (?) R, returning from rehab, their espn website says

We Have To Maintain The 5-6 Games On Them Going Into Wknd -- numerous new players for both teams -- Hanley you aren't forgotten -- Dustin, maybe/mayb not this year

BOSTON RED SOX

Sox Yankees, it's never not-huge -- Rick-Luis Severino tmrw nite, David-Masahiro Tanaka Sun nite -- goin the way he was, Chris should have an inflamed shoulder more often

there are other huge games too, M's need Felix to pitch like a king tonite, they lost twice to Altuve-less 'stros -- word, his spot in the rotation in the balance -- ERA 5.60

Comebacking aces MadBum (3-4) and Clayton K (4-5) pitching against Zack Grienke (12-5) and J.Chacin (10-3)

Again, it's all in background -- hated Brawnx Bombiz at Fenway on a midsummer weekend -- SAWX -- watta chance to pull away going into the dog days of Aug., doubt it'll happen tho

One would have made a lot of money betting that kale and mad bum combined would have under 10 wins

With cueto toast my giants are done. Venus and mars need to align if every game u play has a score of 5-4 and you have no big bopper

I put in some prop bets before the season started. One was that Cuerto would win at least 13 games. Was holding out hope all season. Obviously that's not happening.

Giants should trade McCutchen. Who cares if he doesn't clear waivers?

NEW YORK -- New York Mets left-hander Steven Matz was diagnosed with a mild flexor pronator strain in his left forearm on Thursday and could be placed on the disabled list.

Matz didn't get out of the first inning of his most recent start. He allowed seven runs on eight hits in what became a 25-4 loss at Washington on Tuesday, the most lopsided defeat in Mets history.

Matz complained of tightness in his left forearm after the game. An MRI on Thursday showed mild inflammation but did not reveal any structural damage.

Yes, w/Pablo now out too, row a little longer to hoe for Giants -- but they won 8-1 last nite --

forget Machado, LA holdovers Cody Bellinger & Yasiel Puig did as much damage as anybody (21-5) in their game

Steve Pearce, unbelievable -- his 3 last nite gives 8 for season, 28 RBI w/.316 BA -- thought Brandon Phillips would be a presence too, he's still in Pawtucket

it won't be anything like that tonite (22 total runs) -- 6 runs total, max -- good one, Rick (13-4) vs. Severino (14-4) -- glad they took CC out early last nite (3 IP) -- Mookie reached base all 6 ABs -- Xander (wrist) is listed as day to day -- SAWX

Hard to pick against L.A. in the N.L.

And I think the Yanks need to take the next three this weekend. Still two months to go of course but if they don't take at least two of the next three they might already be in trouble.

We won't continue at this rate over the final 2 mos -- Sawx could hit a rough patch, it just doesn't seem like that the way we're goin right now -- but if so, ideally it will be as the walking wounded gradually return --

Rick, Watta Guy -- 0 BB, 9 K's -- ZERO LOB For NY, in the books in just 2:15 -- a masterpiece -- Verlander also had a great game (14 K's), surprised he didn't finish his

it happens often -- a new kid comes outta nowhere to pitch a gem in his debut, like the kid in the NL a few weeks ago -- it's Sawx tho, so chancey proposition for their kid 2day

Steve Pearce Is A Yankee Killer -- David Price Is A Yankee Killee -- no betr time than tmrw nite for David to make like Steve

WATTA TEAM -- Xander, Mookie, Benintendi -- jumpstarting an immense machine -- Sandy has no backup now tho -- again the baseball gods can frown as well as smile

We're overdue for a frown -- they didn't have Judge or G Sanchez -- the kid made a decent-enough play bottom 9th, just shorthopped the throw from deep 3B, gifting it to xtra innings -- also, JBJ's headsup baserunning made it happen too, he was in full-motor mode from 2B the minute the ball was hit -- the ball only bounced a few feet away from the NY 1st baseman when it shorthopped, but Jackie had it beat & Tie Game Baby, Ya
Xander has same thing Judge has, wrist/HBP

Sawx are 1st in MLB in team BA W/runners in scoring position -- .285

One wonders -- did Hanley's release jigger the lineup & somehow open up more options -- also, would Hanley be doing what Steve Pearce is doing -- it's no 2 ways, we've gone crazy ever since

two of game's biggest stars, Chris Sale & Jose Altuve, will miss more time than originally thought

Also, I think win/loss record isn't as important as it used to be since they pull starters so early now. Ask Jacob DeGrom. Leads the league in E.R.A. and has only won 5 games!

[Edited on 7/13/2018 by Lee]


Yep, 3 weeks later, same thing -- has won 5 games, & has a 1.85 ERA -- if not for Max Scherzer he'd be in contention for the CY IMO -- while possibly having won 10 or less games -- it's comparable to Lefty's 1972 season w/Phils

THE PHIRST-PLACE PHILLIES -- what a turnaround, now a battle of 1st-placers w/AZ -- the other 1st-placer, LAD, visits Oakland in a top-flight interleaguer -- A's have simply gone off, them & us 2 hottest since All Star break

Let's go Sox -- hopefully that knee thing isn't too serious for Altuve, the game needs honest gritty players like him -- & like Dustin (5-9) -- both having knee problems

OUTTA CONTROL, that's the 2018 Sox, keep it goin boys -- Chris & Eduardo back in 2 weeks or so

In 1987 Nolan Ryan went 8-16 with a 2.76 era and 270 striekouts in 212 innings. He finished 5th in the Cy Young voting

Sure envy Bay Area bball fans -- Houston at SF this afternoon, MadBum (4-4) vs. former Cy winner Dallas Keuchel (9-9) -- let's go Giants, they can play thru their injuries

& the Dodgiz across the bay tonight -- A's don't draw that well for some reason, would be surprised tho if that was the case for this series -- winning it would show once & for all Oak is for real -- Seattle falling behind & King Felix Must pitch effectively vs. last-place Tex tonite, even w/Bartolo, 45, as his opposite number

never knew Nolan had that kind of year, Wow -- he shoulda been top dog, or top 3 at least
when he pitched for the Tribe late 1960s, Luis Tiant had a similar year -- lost 20 games w/a sub- 2.00 ERA, IIRC
deGrom pitches high noon tmrw vs. Reds -- ya here comes 7 IP, 3 hits, 1 run, 1 BB, 9K -- & Mets lose 4-2

yes, outta control to this point in the season -- keep it goin Sox, Watta Treat

You are mixing up two year for El Tiante! He was 21-9 with the 1.60 ERA in 1968 - didn't get a vote (despite higher WAR) for Cy Young cause that waas the year Denny McLain won 30 and was a unanimus winner.

Still have fond memories of him pitching for the Red Sox and celebrating with a cigar aafterwards in the Jacuzzi

Nice story. This former groundskeeper from the White Sox spent 23 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit. Jerry Reinsdorf presented him with a 2005 World Series ring. I think he wasn't able to watch The World Series. Think Jack Nickolson in Cuckoo's Nest.

If you are a die hard baseball fan, come to Chicago today. Cubs play a day game. After that, walk to the El train and get off at Comiskey and catch The Sux for their night game.

At least at Comiskey you can afford to be there.

Two of the greats, Barry Bonds & Jack Morris, honored ystrdy in SF & Det
"VOTE THE GUY IN!" -- It came from Willie Mays himself, Barry's godfather -- Morris was inducted into the HOF earlier this month
Jim Leyland was Unequivocal about Bonds ystrdy in SF -- "without question the best I ever managed -- we should feel lucky that we got to watch him play"

I'll take Cleveland and the Cubs in The World Series, although anything can happen of course. Replay 2016. I am curious to see what trades might happen before the deadline. Yankees need another starter. Cubs pitching has question marks.

Maybe Philly sneaks in, who knows? And the Dodgers have certainly made a good turnaround after an awful start.

Should be a fun stretch run!


Yes it should -- we see Philly this week -- it's SF at Chavez Ravine, when is that not-huge -- series du jour is Oakland-Seattle after M's swept Altuve-less 'stros
But yes, a lot did happen b4 the deadline -- a possible Tribe-Cubs WS seems unlikely as of right now but as you said, anything can happen

but holy **** -- 50 games over .500? -- almost no sense to it really & couldn't've been forseen but no complaints & let's go Sox -- has there ever been a more valuable .215 hitter than JBJ?, NO -- there's a different guy coming up big every time

Ya that's right, thx -- he set the record back then for strikeouts in consecutive games (32), which I think sorta threw me (not to mention a foggy brain ), but that indeed was in 1968 -- 9-20, 3.71 ERA the next year (1969)

his 2 greatest games bookended his career -- in his July 1964 MLB debut silenced WS champion NYY on 4 singles to shut out Whitey Ford & Co 3-0

then Oct. 1 1978 & his 2-hitter over Tor that kept our playoff hopes alive in his last game w/Sox
Luis went 21-17 over next 2 years w/NY before finishing w/Pirates

along the way his 5-hitter 9/16/65 at Fenway

Looking forward to the pennant races this year. Even with the extra wild card teams there are a few that can conceivably win 90+ and not get in.

Interesting.

And the Yanks could play the "real" first round against Boston. That would be fun. Team that has the record for most wins in a season (Seattle) didn't go too far.

It's still early, the AL West could become a 3-way horserace down the stretch, although no Paxton for Seattle for awhile -- that liner stung, no doubt about it -- should be mad-race for WC & div title

same NL West, any of those 4 teams could win div -- still like SF's chances

Let's go Sox, watta team, HOLY **** ARE WE KILLIN IT OR WHAT -- Rick, 15th win last nite -- batterymate Sandy coming up big -- Brock pinch-hit HR, unbelievable
