Verlander banned a Detroit Free Press writer (the main Detroit paper) from the dressing room last night. Yikes.

Adirondack River Pigs?
Couldn't possibly go over well tho -- sure enough,
HOWEVER, read the fine print


TUPPER LAKE, N.Y. — A new semi-pro baseball team in the Adirondacks is rooting around for a new nickname. Some residents grunted at "River Pigs."

Now the name of the new Empire League team will be changed.

The name River Pigs was chosen to reflect the region's logging history. River pigs were skilled loggers who broke up logjams on rivers

Clay and Felix had so-so returns over the weekend

Most importantly -- I know all you fans took note over the weekend of the century mark of the greatest feat ever on a baseball diamond -- 100 years can't diminish its impact, in fact it only enhances it


On Aug. 24, 1919, in his first start as a member of the Indians since being traded from the Red Sox, right-hander Ray Caldwell is knocked unconscious after being struck by lightning with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. The 31 year-old free-wheeling spitballer, who was was unconscious for about five minutes, refuses to leave the game, needing just one more out for the complete-game victory, and goes on to record the final out for the 2-1 victory over Philadelphia at Cleveland's League Park.

Everyone talks about the 1969 Amazin Mets,which they should
But waattabout the Cubs too -- were way ahead, then lost 17 of their last 25 in an unbelievable choke

Now it's the Cubs & Mets in a 3 critical games, & NYM still smarting from sweep to Atlanta -- took some of the wknd starch outta Citi fans, & let's face it, they don't wanna see a repeat of 2006 and 07, when Mets coughed it up in consecutive Septembers --
on the other hand, their own 3 game sweep would enable Amazins to pass Cubbies in NL standings for the 1st time this season

Mad Max is back, the lowly O's are in from Baltimore for a visit, & an injury-free Stephen & the streaking Nats (W5, 8-2 L10) could be poised to catch Atlanta -- Braves own the Mets, they've won 11 of 14 against them

Just a pissah race for NL MVP between Acuna Jr and Christian Yelich -- players with both speed & power, & Acuna Jr is crowding Jose Canseco's 1988 record of 40 HR and 40 SB

ACUNA JR: .290 BA, 106 runs (1st place), 156 hits (2nd), 36 HR (4th) -- 30 SB (1st) -- then t9 with Cody Bellinger w/89 RBI

YELICH: .329 BA (2nd), 41 HR (2nd), 100 RBI (5th) -- 25 SB (4th) -- then t7 hits (146), and 8th in runs (91)

pissah is a regional term -- I'd have to give it to Christian based on BA differential -- Bellinger is having a great year too (.312, 42 HR, 89 RBI, 101 runs)

No Sox fan, or player, is giving up yet -- one thing is sure, a deserving AL team won't be in the playoffs, that has a better record than all but 2 NL teams (if it started tomorrow) -- there's three spots for Oak, MN, TB & Tribe

Let's Go Sox

If we can win these 2 series this week vs division leaders it’ll show we mean business & we’ll still have a pulse going into next week’s big (for Yaz fans) SF series

Giants made their run in this, the 2nd straight year of the retirement of a long time west coast manager, Bochy (after Sciosa last year) - looks like too little too late tho - could be for us too - need look no further than the 0-8 vs TB/NY late July-early Aug

Totally agree about Bauer. Don't get that one.

Yep Bauer has been a bust for Reds, & Chief Wahoo’s Tribe sliding outta contention gong into their crucial wknd series w/MN -
Same thing w/Cashner, he was great in Balt, a bust here - walked bases full last night costing us the game/series - now it’s last-gasp time this wknd - it's always big w/NY, let’s goSox

I don't see Boston sneaking in. I think they are running out of time. Although it would be fun to see them play NY if they could make it that far.

Yeah it's completely doubtful because of the lack of pitching. Announcers said last night that we lead the league in number of games giving up eight or more walks per game.

Cubs are getting closer and closer to a playoff berth, they're playing well — what’s w/AZ, suddenly they’re just 2 GB Cubbies —
Same Atlanta, they’re W8 & have surged past MN in the overall - Mil, Phil & Mets at 72-68 - NY & Houstros 92-50, LA 1/2 GB

It’s 6 teams vying for 2 spots in NL - Sox are 5 out - again, no pitching makes it highly improbable
But We Won Tonite

The Flubs ain't looking so good. I was going to go up to Milwaukee this weekend to see the series. Glad I didn't bother. I don't think they are going to catch St Louis.

Hope your team makes it, looks like they should - suddenly Wash sliding (L4), no catching Atlanta now like I thought they would

It’s just the penthouse & outhouse this year in the AL - not just NY & Hou, but TB, MN, Oakland, Tribe up top

Same down below, it’s not just Det & Balt, all those bottom 6 teams are down the tubes - Tygiz likely 100 losses today, but at least won’t hit their 2003 record-for-futility of 119

Was mistaken, that SF series is next week- both currently 7 out - let’s go Sox

Well, the Nats got one in last night against the Braves, who looked like they could have pulled it back in a place they rarely find themselves at home, playing the bottom of the 9th inning.
This year has been weird though. I can't remember a time when there were so many teams over 500, much less over 600.

Brewers are having a nice surge - taking 5 of 7 from the Chubs (and a couple from Houston last week). Still 2 games out from the final Wild Card, but it would be nice to see them end the season strong. They are in Miami this week, if they can't add a few Ws over the next four games, they don't deserve to make the playoffs.

Red Sox have fired their President. Seems a bit of an overreaction, but they took a small dip this season after dominating in 2018, but were still in a position to make the playoffs late in the year.

Meanwhile, the Yankees seem like the team to beat. They've figured out their rotation and Boone should get Manager of the Year for keeping the Yankees atop the AL with all of their injuries through out the season.

Well, Yelich is out for the season. That's probably that, with Moustakas in and out, unless the rest of the team can rally. Too bad, they had a fairly easy schedule down the stretch and were kind of surging. But you never know, maybe they can do like the Yankees have done and plug their major injury holes since there is still a lot of talent on the roster.

That's a real shame. But maybe that A-Hole in left field can put them on his shoulders. He's capable. Plus they moved into a spot where they are just a game back of the Flubs for the last playoff spot so I wouldn't write them off just yet.

And the Flubs still have seven games left with the Cards. Who knows?

We get our 1st look at Clay tonite since the trade, he’s 1-4, 5.31 ERA - Felix’ return has also been a bust (1-6, 6.96), they’ll throw him out there tmrw vs ChiSox

Clay is 35, Félix 33 - who could forget Clay’s no hitter at Fenway in just his 2nd big league start - Felix’ repertoire has gone the way of Steve Blass
Let’s go Sox
Wait til next year

Well, the Brewers tied the Flubs last night. It is going to be something here in Chicago if they don't make the playoffs. If Maddon wasn't concerned about his job, he better be. Hell the Yanks fired Girardi a few years ago and he rallied them into the playoffs in September. Speaking of, I really think Girardi is going to be the Flubs manager next year. He had a chance at it years ago and declined. I think he will take it this time if given the opportunity.

A buddy of mine offered me a bet to see if I would take my Tiggers winning 50 games this year. I think they are on 43 right now. Got 18 games left. They should be able to win seven. I turned down the offer. How sad is that?

Hey, like we both said, lots of baseball left to be played. Brewers are lucky to be slapping Miami around right now, and going for their 7th win in a row as I type this. Other than St Louis (who just dropped 2 in a row to the Rockies), the Crew finish playing the bottom of the NL. But the Cubs aren't out of it (as much as I'd like them to be) and The Phillies and Mets are somehow both right there in the Wild Card hunt, too. Should be an exciting finish in the NL Central. Cards have a tough finish and could just as easily end up in 3rd place.

I think it would be a shame for the Cubs to move away from Maddon, he's a solid manager and has done well in Chicago (and TB, before that). Girardi managed for a decade in the Bronx before the Yankees moved on and I think they were right to - Joe looked spent, it was time. I'm all for continuity, and sticking with your guy, but a decade seems to be long enough. Just seems like awfully reactionary to a decent season thus far in a division that was pretty close for the first half of the season.

Ahh, memories.

I'll be really surprised if it's not. Astros are up there, but the Yankees just have an unstoppable look this year the way they've been plugging holes in the lineup with HRs.

But that's why they play the games...

If I had to put a nickel on who is going to win I would take the Astros. I really don't know much about their bullpen but their starting rotation is off the charts. If they let those guys pitch into the 7th / 8th inning I can see them winning it all.

Houstros beat up A’s 15-0 Monday, then lost the next 3 - so who knows, but yep, ties in NL w/Cubs & Brew, also Phil & NY - AZ was hot, now they are not :huhwah:

The AL race is a doozie - a WS-caliber team will be on the sidelines - just a half game separates those 3 teams for the 2 WCs
