wow...nick senzel's debut with CIN featured an amazing wall climbing HR robbery by kevin pillar...and then senzel getting a HR in his following AB.

i don't think they'll miss matt kemp.

also, NYM/MIL are tied in the 18th inning...longest game (by innings) in miller park history

...MIL wins in the 18th...6 hit night for braun.  boo.

wow...PIT down by 2 in the 13th...win with a walk-off homer in the bottom 13th...

there's been some good extra innings baseball the past couple days.

de la cruz AA debut last night...

5ip 1h 4bb 5k, 1r/er

    Welp. I guess I will continue to pay attention to the Wild Card race? Dropping the Michael Wacha game is bad.

    Another game, another set of golden opportunities to add on to a lead wasted.

    And nine hits ... with one run to show for it

    6 innings, 5 pitchers used...and the cubs are down by 1 to show for it.

    I hate Tommy Edman, and those of his ilk. The pissbirds are masters of getting a few good years out of middling prospect types like him. DeJong, Jon Jay, Matt Adams, Tommy Pham, Allen Craig, Matt Carpenter... the list goes on and on.

    Trades involving players on minor league reserve lists are prohibited beginning at 12 PM (Eastern) on the 7th day prior to the originally-scheduled conclusion of the MLB regular season through the last day of the MLB regular season (including a day in which a Game #163 and Game #164 tie-breaker game is played or a day in which a re-scheduled game is played after the originally-scheduled conclusion of the MLB regular season).

    If he makes four more appearances prior to the conclusion of the MLB regular season, David Phelps' 2020 club option salary escalates from $3M to $5M (plus up to $3.25M in performance bonuses).

    Conversely, Padres closer Kirby Yates has allowed only two HR with a .184 OppBA and 13/100 BB/K in 59.2 IP and  Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez (now on Restricted List) has allowed just five HR with a .197 OppBA and 13/90 BB/K in 60.0 IP.

    Send back to manufacturer and ask for a replacement.

    Seems like the rotation is just too old, especially with a bullpen this flimsy backing them up.

    I’ve been thinking on this. And there have been so many crushing defeats it seems. And not a whole lot of really uplifting wins. I think it’s a factor of this team doesn’t come from behind a lot (winning last night would have been an amazing win) and seems to blow late leads or allow this type of loss. Last night was more evidence that this team just can’t finish anything.

    cubs are out of a playoff slot (1st place or wild card slot) for the 1st time since april.

    crushing defeat after a hell of a 9th inning comeback.
