AND Darwin Barney really gotta hold of one. The bad news with that is it may have bought him more playing time. Maybe the good news will be that another team noticed.

Nice move by Rob's new webmaster on moving the site over to cloudflare. This will be a great help for security for those of you worried about that kind of stuff.

When did Eric Wedge turn 60?

veras gives up a HR to the 1st batter he faces...ugg.

...and a 2nd homer 2 outs and a walk later...ugg.

also, j.baez returned to action in iowa...0-4, 3Ks

Free agency is a dice roll for pitchers.

Kris Bryant is striking out 26.7% of the time at AA and I just couldn't care less.

4 hr, 4 doubles, and 10 walks in 60PA helps that go down easier.

i.stewart (LAA) is hitting cleanup vs WAS tonight...lulz.

.250/.276/.571 (29 PA, 1hr + 2 triples propping that slugging)

  • RIP Arnie. We could use a lot more like you -- a man who succeeded and failed on his own terms, a true original, and, finally, a remarkable example of graciousness towards others.

  • Cubs finish 33 over at home. I was, personally, one game over at 3-2, which was one of my better years in a while.

    I do hope that's the last time we see the Cardinals this year. A lot of power, which is dangerous, particularly in a short series, and they have really shut down KB all year.

    Oh, and Jon Lester? Damn!

  • 2 out in the 7th, lester at 84 pitches, ross taken out for the standing O.

    it's possible contreras will catch lester for another inning+.

  • as a fan, he only "owes" us the game on the field and not getting in the way of others on his team being ready to play (imo).

    it's exponentially worse to his family and friends, but this dude most likely had 15+ years of play left and even though he just turned 24 a couple months ago he had already established himself as a top guy in the game.

  • I know what you're trying to say, Charlie, that none of us feels what his loved ones must be feeling.

    On the other hand, what makes a death like this tragic is precisely the loss, based on Fernandez's youth and brilliance, to the baseball world.

    So, for example, we can say that Princess Diana's death meant more, in aggregate, to millions of admirers who didn't know her personally than to her loved ones.

  • boston pitching snags a couple of mlb team records...

    "Over nine innings of play, Boston's staff struck out 11 straight Tampa Bay Rays hitters Sunday, breaking the major-league record for most consecutive strikeouts in a game.

    The previous record was held by former New York Mets right-hander Tom Seaver, who struck out 10 straight hitters in 1970.

    Not only that, but with a strikeout to end the ninth, sending the game into extras, Boston's staff also struck out an MLB-record 21 batters over nine innings."

  • What a loss to baseball, which I'm sure pales in comparison to the personal loss to his loved ones.
