contreras sure as hell didn't repeat his watching party on a catch at the wall in this game...he was half way to 2nd when it was snagged and hauling ass.

wow.  runs...and a multiple-run lead.

baez #32

also, ARZ is still very much cubs territory.  this might as well be a home game if you only focus on the fans.

Dan Vogel-bomb! Grand slam for M’s in a 4-1 win. 2nd HR in two nights. He’s only had 72 at bats this season though. Still glad to see some success for him.

he destroyed spring training pitching and got sent to AAA as a reward.

started out a little slow there, but got on track rather quickly and ended strong.

len gets one of his music picks in coming back from the break...plays some meat puppets...

JD totally called that KB was going to homer - very good stuff!

IIRC, I believe that was KB's first homer to right field this year. 

JD’s had a good night. Earlier, when Len mentioned that Yelich had hit for the cycle and he had also hit for the cycle against the Reds about a month ago...JD says, “the bi-cycle.” I love their broadcast because of stuff like that.

I think JD is great -- good analyst and genuinely funny.

i miss the chemistry of len/bob.  JD misses so many things len sets up for him...stuff bob used to knock out of the park.

i don't hate JD, but i think i'd like him more if i never experienced len/bob.

Len and Bob were clearly good friends and had great chemistry -- but I thought Brenley's analysis was pretty Joe Morgan-esque, and I never thought he was he really funny, he was just old-school baseball funny. "When I played, they said I ran like I was angry at the ground HAHAHAHA!"  I find JD to be a much more insightful analyst and a truly funny guy.  But, tastes differ.

I concur with billybucks here.  Sometimes JD makes jokes that take me a minute or two but then it just put me in stitches.  Also agree with his skills as an analyst.

Bob was got super boring by his last couple years. JD is so much smarter about baseball. I third billybucks.

Willy learned his lesson. Let's move on please.

    MLBTR has an update on the latest owner's revision proposal.

    'we have a donald trump problem, but he may be a highly advanced and dangerous symptom rather than the actual disease.'

    Surely true, dear Crunch. Trump has emboldened the ugly fact that America's cruel underbelly is still racism and police brutality that forwards that original sin. 

    America NEEDS its HEROES.

    if he does die by "suicide", I would blame Bill Barr and look into a real conspiracy.

    Yes, many players are millionaires too. However, a good percentage of MLB Owners are billionaires. If there's no MLB in 2020 that's on 30 owners, not the players no matter how the Press spins things.

    Well said, Crunch. #Resistance

    i'm not a fan of this administration.  i'm not a fan of someone holding office who's rise to political prominence involved insisiting, with proof he clamed, that the current elected president at the time was not a citizen of the United States.

    we watched as state after state was slowly "won over" by promises of keeping out muslims and hispanics as the most important issue that could help elevate the state of our country.

    Crunch, I'm looking at you. You dominate this site, you never don't comment. Say something meaningful now this country is effed if our current pussy is reelected. Personally I would love tomorrow's headline to be he died an agonizing death. It's time we bring this motherfucket down.

    So the Minneapolis cop who murdered George Floyd is on suicide watch. Gosh, I sure hope that pathetic piece of shit doesn't take his own life. How can MAGA be true if pigs like this fuck die? Think of the white people!!!

    "Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that there is "no evidence of progress yet" in talks between MLB and the MLBPA and, thus, "no realistic hope" of reaching a deal by the "soft" June 1 deadline.

    Heyman adds, though, that the deadline "was soft for a reason" and the "hope remains to start (the) season (during the) July 4 weekend." In order for that to happen and for spring training 2.0 to start as hoped on June 10, June 5-9 appears to be the likeliest window for a deal to get done"

    don't worry, i'm sure even though he was spared from cuts there's some hardship he's being tortured with that he has to unfairly overcome.  #coreystrong #onthecross #yolo #swag #kony2012

    there's no way a system like that or something similar to that would work.

    "oh hi." - green bay packers

    *shoves out of way*

    like i said, there's no way that would work.

    Corey Black still has a job.

    I am ready for MLB owners to give it a f***ing rest. I don't have any outrage to spare on them.

    If they can't afford this crisis, maybe they can surrender franchise rights to the players, grounds crew, concession employees, etc., and MLB teams can be employee owned.
