He doesn't like it. If you happen to hit a home run, don't run too slow, don't run too fast. If you happen to want to celebrate, get in the tunnel first. And if he hits you, don't charge the mound, because he's a Gold Glove boxer. I'm like, damn, what about my seventeen-game hitting streak? That was the night it ended." - Hank Aaron



Can't remember who said it but I think they were talking about Gibson and the quote was something along the lines of "He was so mean he would throw at his Grandma on Mother's Day".

Great story about your grandpa & the end of the '62 WS emr -- & your fam's long history w/the Giants -- as far back as Big Six himself -- have your or fam members ever been to the annual Christy Mathewson Day in Factoryville PA -- the legendary unhittable fadeaway pitch -- gosh your grandpa must have similarly melted down when that foul ball dropped between Christy & 2 other players in the ???? WS (1912 I think) -- a lifelong fan, awesome

most of Matty's #s have been upstairs since a kid, always been a fan of the old timers -- 37-3 one year -- passed away tragically young (45) from exposure to poison something during WW I -- occured during 1925 WS & somber players from both teams wore black armbands knowing they were peons compared to the great Big Six

Pretty good chance of a Tyler Thornburg sighting over the wknd, so they're saying -- they're in KC, they can cautiously slot him in for a few pitches vs a weak offense -- what will Tyler do after one-and-a-half years out -- hopefully not what Carson did

In a scheduling quirk Seattle plays only LA & Colo over next few weeks -- after playing us twice & NY, the schedule since has been more-than kind to mariners (W7, half-game behind Hou)

Dustin P in NY spending time w/physician who did his operation last fall -- this wasn't the result that was expected -- yes they did say discomfort would recur periodically, but this was still not the desired outcome keeping sidelined a great player -- inflammation is persisting

BOSTON RED SOX

I was only 6 when my grandfather died; so don't have much recollection.


What killed me is never got to share a championship with my dad (1954 was 2 years before I was born) He died just before the Giants blew the series in 2002. The even year streak ran hollow (my brother has defected to the Yankees. Better than the Dodgers.


I just remember staying up to 2:00 AM listening to west coast game on the radio with my dad. Some of our best times together. In 1971 I think it was the Pirates took them out in the playoffs (courtesy of three Bob Roberstson homes.) Giants ran out of gas as Marichal and Perry had to finish up the season and they had no other good pitchers. Dad promised a trip to Baltiore for the WS if the Giants won.

Paternal side of my fam goes almost as far back w/the Cleveland Indians -- my dad told me all about watching Hal Trosky, Earl Averill & his other heroes -- we were Indians fans growing up, I idolized 3B Max Alvis, Yankee killer, 1B Fred Whitfield, DaddyWags, the great Leon Wagner, Rocky Colavito, of course Sudden Sam et al -- Bob Feller said back in the day Sam's fastball compared to his own

-- at any rate we moved to Boston, where shortly after 1967 came along & Sox fans sprang up everywhere, Including Here -- been on the bus since then

Stupid Tigers blew another one yesterday. Deciding if I want to drop $120 for a pair of tickets today at Wrigley. I can probably get something cheaper outside.

Hope everyone has a good holiday today -- I'll take my medicine -- gotta take the good w/the bad etc -- Soc fans can't think "4th of July" w/out thinking of Righetti's 1983 no hitter -- it was Carl's last year, he wasn't in the lineup tho so that explains it -- only 41G in attendance, rivalry had cooled down from torrid mid 70s-1980 etc

Yes, no Miggy, ex-pitching coach suing -- long 2nd half looms for Tigers -- same us if Dustin remains out & JBJ & catchers don't start hitting -- let's go Sox

Funny thing about the end to the '60 and '62 World Series game sevens. One won by NY, one lost. Ralph Terry was on the mound, and pitcher of record in each. Mazeroski homers and McCovey lines out. Hit 'em where they ain't I guess.



Did he throw rakes at you?



No, he'd actually wave a little sometimes.

OAKLAND has won 16 of 20 -- gotta hand it to them, competitive almost every year despite a small budget -- now going into a huge series w/Houston -- Jed Lowrie is having a career year -- so is another ex-Sox, Jon Lester, for surging Cubs

WED. NITE., for all the nationally-televised marbles -- Bartolo, 45, vs. Chris Sale

"ChiSox & KC a combined L16, groty"
Now it's an L14, but gro-tier still is the situation at venerable Camden Yards -- players, coaches, upstairs types, concerned alums -- all embarrassed that it's gotten to this point, & if there's any way possible to make something of the season

RIP, Frank Ramsey -- 6th-man prototype, 7 rings w/Celts -- came up here from Kentucky & played 9 tremendous seasons in Boston -- one of the greats indeed

You guys might like this. At Comiskey they have these seats called "Scout Seats". We went to the game last night and my wife got them. These are amazing. Buffet, open bar and free everything for the game.

So you walk through this runway to get to your seats. The umpire dressing room is right there en route. You walk right by it. This guy comes running by us and is pounding on the door to the dressing room to try to get in. I thought he had a uniform on of some sort. An attendant lets him in.

Goes in and comes out of the room. He runs by me, almost knocks me over, I spilled my beer on my wife. Told me to get out of his way.

He was one of the umps.

I'd have called outside the baseline interference on him for bumping into you.

And if he argued with you, I'd have tossed him!

must've been a riot when you saw the guy banging on the door, out there on the field umpiring -- the umps, right there w/the fans, cool

Chris Sale last night, radio announcers said, became 1st-ever to throw 5 straight games of at least 11 Ks and 1 or less walk -- in his last 7 games his ERA is under 1.00 they said, along w/other stats -- the guy is so lights out right now, just a stud --

feel bad for Pedey -- a bad knee is a bad knee & all the hot- **** hi tech modern medical science doesn't change that -- Nunez & Holt have platooned effectively in Dustin's absence --

w/Vasquez out, Sandy now catching backed up by Swihart -- typical overzealous MLB worrywarts, it was actually the protective glove he was wearing that caused Christian's broken finger

TB has done away entirely w/starting pitching -- their 1st pitcher usually goes no more than 2 IP (it was 1 IP last nite)
-- this is a radical trend, which in this day & age of minimum IPs, other teams likely to follow suit -- bottom-line, it's working big-time for them (they've won 14 of 18)

Most Celts fans had hoped Marcus S would've been signed & in the fold by now -- it hasn't happened, not a good sign -- it should've been 1st order of business

9-6, 4.44 ERA -- w/a 10-game win streak, not to mention his own 10th win, on the line, guessing David will pitch well

He hasn't won 10 straight. He's 3-2 in his last 5. I watched the game a couple weeks ago and the Yanks lit him up. His last 3 starts have been rather underwhelming.

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!

Sox have won 10 straight -- it was David's 10th win

even at this midway point, AL playoff field about set -- altho Seattle slowing down & A's catching up -- both Felix Hernandez, and Paxton, their other good pitcher ar on the DL (bad backs) -- read somewhere King Felix had to stand between innings in his last 2 starts -- Tribe will win Central div by default

MOOKIE BETTS, a grand slam after a 13-pitch AB -- Eduardo R has been awesome -- w/Devers on DL Nunez will go to 3B & Holt stay at 2nd, or vice versa

JBJ a big night last night, also one of his routine hilite-reel catches in Wed. game -- both he & Sandy are starting to hit -- Sandy looms large now w/Christian out

BOSTON RED SOX

Thought you meant Price had won 10 straight. He still has a lousy ERA. Not a bad third or fourth guy in the rotation though. Most teams would certainly take him.

Going to the White Sox / Royals game tomorrow. This club has an offer. $12 for an all you can eat BBQ buffet. Shuttle to the game and an outfield ticket. Can't beat that.

This is the same place I saw the TTB two years ago. Small rock club.

Went to Marlins-Brewers last week. Great ball park in an odd part of the city. Just west of downtown, but in kind of a suburban area of the city. Miami is definitely a soccer town, the crowd (if you can call it that) was mostly us Brew Crew.

Hey, you can get tickets cheaper than a Minor League Game, believe it or not.

Kyle Schwarber got screwed by the Harpers last night. Throwing pitches before the previous ball landed. Where were the officials? This is an outrage!

Couldn't care less other than the fact that I bet on Kyle to win.
