Holy crap, Theodore is 13-7 after having that atrocious start this year? Neat.

It would be nice if we could call this one a mulligan and the Pirates beat the Brewers.

I wouldn't be completely shocked to see the Cubs make a move for a right handed pinch hitter. I don't think anyone trusts Ronny Cedeno in a pressure pinch hitting situation. Johnson is usually ok but looked bad swinging at ball 4.

Ah well first loss since the debacle against the Nationals, I'll take it.

No closer to a division title, but looks like Cards are in trouble. Hopefully knock that number down to a 16.

and Pujols homers just as I type that to make it 8-5 Astros headed to the bottom of the 7th.

Remember LATROY HAWKINS striking out three Cubs in a mop-up role shortly after being acquired by the 'Stros? He struck out the side. I chalked it up at the time as a case of the Cubs wanting to get the game over with.

Well, he kept it up. So far in August he's made 13 appearances, pitched 10.0 innings, allowed no runs on 3 hits and struck out 16!

Houston is using him as their set-up man for Valverde. It seems to suit him...

  • 1. Mets--because of the losses in the rotation
    2. Giants--because they're not the team they were BUT they maybe have bullshit even-year magic?
    3. Cardinals--because rivalry and not making the playoffs hurts them more than losing in the NLDS plus getting eliminated by them in the playoffs would make for horrible sports commentary next throughout next season.

    CLE/DET rained out last night already, possible rain-outs in New York (vs. Baltimore), Boston(vs. Toronto) and Philly(vs. Mets) this weekend too.

    Not only games involving playoff spots that would need to be played, but any that involve home field advantage.

  • I got the first one! Second one I'm not even sure what even/odd betting is.

  • any opponent preference for NLDS?

    Mets are down to 1 great pitcher instead of 4. Syndegaard may pitch Sunday which means if Mets win the WC game, he'd be set up for Game 1. There's a chance they clinch a spot by Sunday so he'd pitch the WC and then we'd probably get Colon for Game 1. They've certainly had the hottest bats over the last week and month out of the WC options.

  • Wow. I didn't know they could do that.

    Nice for Willson, not so much for Addy.

    Stats count, no make-up date of course.

  • What Rob G said.  I can't speak for Piittsburgh, but the other end of the state has had absolute crap weather for two days. Perfect day to take it easy.
