I'll take the Stro's in the AL West.  Have to go with the Cubs in the Central.  Darvish is back and healthy and they added Cole Hamels, who was pitching well.  Plus, they won 95 games in what had to be considered kind of an "off" year.  The Cards are interesting.  I recognize about 3 names on the entire pitching staff.  I'm sure Jar has 100% better intel than I do on that.  But if Goldmember, Fowler and Ozuna do what they get paid to do, that could be a verily dangerous club.

Braves: I'll take em' just because they won it last year in an extremely weak division.  They did exactly squat to bolster the pitching staff but the addition of Josh Donaldson gives me half chub.  I wish they had dealt Dansby Swanson and a couple of prospects for someone worth a shoot, though.  He makes that half chub go into scared turtle mode.

Checking out the Bravos salaries and I'm not getting it.  I understand paying Josh Donaldson and Freddie Freeman ($23 and $21 mil respectively)Proven vets that may wind up in the HOF one day if they stay consistent.  So guess who comes in 3rd and 4th on the roster?  Pitchers Kevin Gausman ($9.3m) and 36 year old, Darren O'Day ($9m)  WTF???  Hey AU1, it looks like O'Day was a Bird for a while.  Is he worth that? 

Nick Markakis was their most productive bat last year.  They released him to free agency, then signed him back at $4m.  That's a steal. Same with picking up Brian McCann for $2m.  He's 35 and on his last leg but should provide quality and experience to platoon at catcher. 

The young guns of Acuna, Jr., Albies, Comargo and Swanson remain at what I assume is the league minimum of $575K.  Enjoy it while you can ATL, cause' you're about to open the check book. 

On another note, it looks like Manny Machado and the Padres are going to hook up to the tune of $30m a year for 10 years.  At least that's what was being reported earlier today.

I thought you said we didn't have any high priced talent?
Title: Re: 2019 Installment of MLB Bitchin' & Moanin'
Post by: AUJarhead on February 19, 2019, 05:04:29 PM
That Machado deal is crazy.  And he can opt out after 5 years, so in theory, he could be a free agent at age 31, also.

So what's Harper going to get?  10/320?  And I can bet he would put in a 5 year opt out, too.

And I wish the Cards would offer Harper that deal, 10/320, but front load it.  First year, 40/M, and then come down from there.  If he opts out after 5, you've in theory had him for his most productive years.  If he stays, then you are freeing up cap room every year.

Supposedly, the Padres farm system is loaded with young talent.  This could be something where they may suck the first year or two of his deal, but slowly start getting good, like Houston.

Post by: Snaggletiger on February 19, 2019, 05:26:44 PM
I'm torn, torn like an old sweater on Harper.  The biggest upside for him is that he's what, 26?  So, obviously he's hitting his prime and you have to think the next 4-5 years will be his best.  But, he has been underwhelming to me.  Maybe that's more because of the over-the-top hype that's followed him since he hit the league.  So far in 7 years, he's averaged 26 homers and 74 RBI while batting .279. 

Do I want the guy on my team?  Oh hellz to the yes!!! But unless I'm the Yankme's, the Red Sox or the handful of teams with unlimited cash, I'm not stroking that $35m check every year for one guy.

Jar, how did you guys land Goldmember for $15.5m??? Talk about your steals.  That guy is a stud.

Compare his career stats to Harper's.  He's averaging 26 HR and 89 RBI with a .297 average.  And you got him for less than half what Bryce is going to command?  Jeebus!

That's because you're spending it on hookers and blow.  I get it.

But we all know these teams could afford 30M on one guy.

Current payroll: Cubs at 210M, Cards at 153M, Braves at 109M, Os at 61M.  They all could spend 30M.

Especially when you realize that revenue (for 2017 - only site I could find):
Cubs - 457M
Cards - 319M
Braves - 336M
Os - 252M

He's in the last year of his contract, so Arizona figured to get something for him.  Cards are hoping that they can sign him long term after the season, look how well that worked out with JHey..  (although it did work out for Scott Rolen and Matt Holliday).

Doing the quick Chizad math, the Braves sold just over 2.5 million tickets last year at an average of $32.00 a pop.  That comes to right at $80mil.  Take the concessions and ATL gear sold at the stadium and you more than cover their payroll with attendance alone.

I think he wants to retire a Cardinal.  The city loves him, but he's clearly past his prime.  I think he will retire this year.

Okay, so what does Harper do?  All the "experts" are saying it's between a long term (10 years) deal with the Phillies at probably $35m/per, or a much shorter contract with the Dodgers, most likely closer to $40m/per.

The Phillies are the logical choice, but Harper is from Las Vegas (I believe) and he's all about show time.

Don't think that contract gets Harper to 40, which is nuts.

His numbers are strange.  Entered the league and hit .270 for three straight years, then jumped to .330, then down to .240, then back up to .319, then down to .240.

Gotta make you happy as a Braves fan knowing that when he's in his mid 30s, and batting .220, that Phils are paying him 25M for that.

After some googlez, the only 10 year contract I could find that I thought was good was when the Yanks signed Jeter to a 10 year deal in 2001.  But I think that's more based on him being the face of the team, and they did win a World Series in 2009.

But generally speaking, it's a terrible idea.

Here's what I'm not getting about the Harper deal, Philly has him for 25M/year.  Didn't the Nats offer him 10 years/300M+?  He must have hated DC.

Well, the way they "hide" eggs these days, you have to wonder if the ones who can't reach down and pick one up are a bit daft.

As a kid we would have our annual Easter egg hunt at my uncle's house. YOU DID NOT SEE AN EGG! Hell, we found eggs still hidden from the year before.

They would put a little money in those bigger eggs and hide those. I was pissed off I could not find one and kicked an ant bed. I kicked the top off of the prized egg. He had lifted up the old ant bed and put the egg under it. If eggs were the only food they got, kids today would starve at my old hunts.

So I guess the Philly fans got that one right...

Yeah, but you can expect that with yesterday being the debut of Bryce Harper in the land of the battery throwers.  I assume he knocked in at least 3 runs and scored a couple all by himself, right?

I believe I would have let him earn his 560K this season and then talk deal.

Maybe they were afraid he's blow it up again and cost them even more.

After an 0-5 night at the plate, Chris Davis is now hitless in 49 straight at bats, obliterating the decades-old mark for futility.  

Here Chris reacts with joy to his streak remaining intact after a third inning liner was caught.

Really pleased with the Josh Donaldson pick up.  So far in 10 games, he's hitting a blistering .190. And while he doesn't have a single homer or RBI, he's really showing good potential.  I feel like over the next 10 games, he can easily double his production.

Braves are getting a bit of a break out in the Rockies.  Colorado is missing 3-4 starters, most of which are big bats.  I swear I love/hate that place, depending on which team hits the pop fly.  Every time the ball goes in the air, there's a threat of it leaving the park.  On that note, there are several iconic ball parks I have on my bucket list to see a game at.  But for some reason, Coors Field just looks bad ass on the cable channels.  Anyone ever been to a game there?

Yes.  Yes I have.  

Interesting place.  It was cold.  I was high.  I mean it was elevated.  I walked to the mile high stripe in the outfield.  I could not breathe.  

It was okay, I guess.  I like Fenway much more.  In terms of a good game experience, the new home of the Atlanta Braves is actually pretty nice.  I ridiculed the switch from Spaceship Turner Field to whatever it was to this, but it's a good place to watch a game.

I really wasn't paying attention when I posted earlier about the Braves locking up Albies.  This morning, I heard several callers bitching about how the Braves ripped this kid off.  Well first off, I assume he has an agent that worked out the deal and Ozzie signed off on it.  But when you look at it and realize he's getting $5mil a year and was an All-Star last year, it says something ain't right.  The average MLB salary last year was $4.25mil.  He's locked in for 7 years.  I would hope the Braves rework it if he continues to perform.

Beat the shoot out of the BoSox yesterday.  Looked good doing it to. Davis had a homer, Nunez looked like he was in beast mode. Pitching was good.  Straily looked great.  May need to pull him from the pen and put him in the starting rotation full time.  Speaking of pen...….We have went to the pen 40% of innings played.  I think I saw the stat come across the screen that we have went to the pen 62.1 innings this year, with the A's being the only team that has more with 62.2.

Not getting quality starts out of guys.  That will/is killing us and has for years.  Even when Buck took us to the playoffs and the ALCS, pitching was our achilleas.

This is going to be a long season.

They did exactly squat in the off season to address a really average....now below average pitching staff.

Central shaping up like we thought with Cubs/Cards/Brewers within 3 games of each other.  Still suspect it will come down to the Brewers and Cubs, but I'll take it.

Phillies, at 16-13, have only a 1 game lead on the mets..  I hope it's not too much longer before batteries are throw at Harper.  Braves hanging around the .500 mark.  They will get better.

Not unless we go get some pitching.  I like our line up and I do think they'll hit all year and only improve.  The pitching staff is only ahead of 5 teams in the NL.  Two of those are the Dodgers and Mets so you know that won't last. 

The Cards have been skrate money.  Goldschmidtberg is paying serious dividends right now.  9 HR's and 30 RBI's while hitting almost 40 points below his career average.  If he starts hitting anywhere near that career average, the season numbers are going to be sick.

I only got to watch the first inning yesterday, so I saw pretty much none of it.  I understand Wainright had a good outing last time, and even though he got through the first in fine fashion, watching him was almost sad to me.  I always loved hating the guy.  He was a true pitcher with command of just about every pitch you could throw.  Sliders, breaking balls, change of speed and the heater. What I saw last night in the first was a grooved 90-91 m.p.h. fast ball and numerous slow, hanging breaking pitches. 

I hope the guy has a great year.  But I kind of wish he had retired a couple of years ago.

Some of the races are starting to take shape.  Unfortunately, the Phillies are playing consistent enough to be 10 games over .500 and starting to open up a little gap.  Not much, but they're going to be hard to beat.  Same with the Baby Bears.  Slow start but putting it all together. 

The damn Yankme's are in first, which is scary because if anybody was paying attention, they've done it with about 80% of their starters on the injured list.  Boston has finally extricated their collective craniums from their collective asses, but it looks like NY may be the class of that division.

Minnesota is continuing to play lights out at 30-16.  Quick, name one player on the Twins. Didn't think so.

The Stro's are freakin' bad ass.  They're knocking down outfield fences all over baseball and their team batting average is 10 points higher than anyone else, right at .280. 


So, you know I've got to speak on my Bravos.  Hitting is fine and should be all year.  I really like their line up top to bottom.  Starting pitching is looking better than I thought it would, mainly due to Max Fried and Mike Soroka, two very young guys pitching great.  Soroka has 11 starts in the Majors and has an ERA under 1.00.  The problem for the Braves is a wretched farkin' bullpen.  If we could just trade bullpens with the Cards, we may have a chance in the East. 

Speaking of young, ATL brought up a kid, Austin Riley, who had 13 HR's in Triple A this year.  He's 6'3" 220 and only 22 years old.  Batting .421 so far with 2 HR's.  Granted, it's only 19 at bats and Major League pitching will figure him out soon enough.  But, the encouraging thing is the number of guys under 25 years old who are big time contributors for this club.

Jar is prophetic.  Cards bats just went silent in this series.  Up 3-0 in the 9th, the Bravos finally woke up and put together a bunch of hits...then scratched out a cheap one in the 10th for a 4-3 win.  Bottom line was in a statement by the announcers in the 10th.  The Birds only had 3 hits on the night.  Amazing with that line up.  Again...our bullpen is freaking putrid.

Honestly, I don't know what to think.  I thought when we had Matheny, that Mabrey was the issue with the batting.  But it sucks now, too.  Maybe we need Big Mac back with the roids he used.

So, it looks like the NL Central is going to be the division to watch all year.  Cubs came back to the pack a bit thanks to the Dirty Red Birds.  Cubs, Brew Crew, Cards and Pirates are all solid.  But, we saw last night that the Bucco's bullpen may be Braves level bad.  The Braves scored 10 unanswered runs from the 7th inning on last night.

Two quick notes:  Dothan/Slocomb/Auburn got a mention last night on the ATL/Pitt telecast when Pirates reliever, Clay Holmes, came in.  They talked about him being from Braves country originally.  Raised in Dothan, played ball at Slocomb (Po-dunk community outside of Dothan) and was going to Auburn before the Pirates drafted him.

Don't know how long this will last, but Austin Riley is a beast right now.  In 18 games he is hitting .324 with 9 HR and 25 RBI.

Another quick observation.  I'm not much of a believer in conspiracy theories, except when it comes to Bama.  But in case anyone hasn't noticed, balls are flying out of the park in record numbers.  And I'm not talking about mine. Is the ball juiced?  Have no clue, but I was starting to think that MLB was getting boring.  It seems like every pitcher who steps on the mound can bring it at 95 plus.  Hell, the Cards have a guy reaching 104 consistently on the gun.  And the way managers use pitchers situationally, bringing in guys just to get that one batter in the 6th....the game just wasn't that interesting.  And I love great pitching.  But May saw the overall HR record broken and it looks like June may be no different.  The Braves scored 12 last night. The Orioles won 12-11.  The Marlins even hung 16 on Milwaukee.  I'm kind of liking this.

Every time I saw his bama-loving monkey ass waddle in from the pen for the Sox last year in the post-season I cringed. 

He saved some games but only because he had a few runs to play with.  In nine post-season games with Boston in 2018 (10 2/3 innings total) he gave up nine hits  (two of which were homers), hit two batters and surrendered seven runs.  I felt like Boston won those games in spite of him, not because of him.  Prior to last season teams he pitched for (ATL and BOS) were 3-8 in the postseason when he took the mound. 

I don't want him on the Braves. Or the Red Sox.  Don't really want him on the Cubs.  Whatever he had he's lost.  I expect him to get tattooed in Chicago.

Speaking of the Baby Bears....loved the stare of death from Javier Baez after smoking one into the left field bleachers.  Best pay back possible after Schwarber (I believe) got plunked in front of him.
I think it was Bryant not to mention Baez himself was HPB, along with Rizzo and Bryant (the second time) and Hamels. Hamels dusted Arenado also after Bryant was hit. It was intentional and in the same spot as they hit Bryant (twice). My man crush for Hamels and Baez are now set in concrete. 

Lets not forget, last year Rockies hit Bryant in the head with a pitch. It put Bryant out of the game on concussion protocol. 


A little video rundown......fyi, Baez was not watching the ball hit the stands, he was starring down the pitcher. I love it!

Rizzo.  They plunked Bryant like 3 times in the first 2 games of the series, so Hamels plunked one of their guys.  Rockies pitchers hit Hamels on the foot, then plunked The Rizz in the ass.  Baez proceded to hit a moon shot after that and stared the pitcher down all the way to first.  Too bad it was the last time those two teams will face off this season.  If there was a next game it would include a brawl and many suspensions...

I'm not much a conspiracy theorist, except when it comes to Alabama football and the SEC/NCAA.  However, I've gotta' think maybe MLB is tweaking something....juiced balls (Mmmmm...) corked bats....or something.  The offense overall is off the charts.  That's surprising because it seems now that everyone who steps on the mound can bring it at 95 plus.  San Diego and the Rockies just finished off a 4 game set where a record 92 runs were scored.  The Braves have scored 15 and 12 runs respectively in the last 2 games and have 125 runs scored in the month of June alone.  It seems like every night there's multiple teams scoring double digit runs.

I have no problem with it and as much as I love good pitching, this is fun to watch.  I'm guessing this has to be somewhat by design to attract more fans.  Ain't gonna' happen tonight for the Bravos since Jacob deGrom is taking the bump for NY.

Yeah, The radios over here are livid. If the Bravos pickup a decent closer adn maybe another solid relief, they can make a serious run.

They brought in a kid the other night, Ynoa, who threw 98 and had really good movement. Dropped his off speed stuff to 87.
And then sent him back down the next day!

So who knows what they will do!


The funny part was that when he came into the game in the 8th, he was Oscar Yah-Noah.
When he came back in the ninth, he was Oscar Eno-Wah!

I don't think any "changes" will be necessary.  Their bullpen has been a revolving door of suck.  They're bringing people up and sending them down constantly.  They did go out and get the guy from Seattle and the Tomlin guy, who have both done pretty good.  But they need a couple of proven pitchers for both long and short relief.

So the NL Central has the Baby Bears back on top by two games over the Cards.  However, the last place Reds are only 5.5 back.  Nobody has a very good record so to come out of that division, they'll have to win it straight up.  No Wildcard for you.

The Dodgers.....yeeeesh.  That's scary.

I thought the Yank Me's were going to run away and hide but dizzam, the Rays are only 5 back and playing well.  I still think they'll take it by at least 10 games.

The Twins have been really good all year, but the Indians are slowly creeping back to the top.  I believe they're 5 out as well.

Suddenly, the Cards are the hottest team in the NL, along with the Giants.  But the Giants don't matter because they're chasing the Dodgers. And suddenly, the Braves can't hit for shoot.  Getting great pitching and wasting it.

So I still say the Cards in 6 over the Yank Me's.  The way they're playing now, I might drop it to 5 games.

The trade deadline is hours away and I'm praying to Jobu that the Braves take advantage it and get another starter and pleeeeeease please pretty please.....someone who can half way close a game.  They traded a minor league prospect to Texas yesterday for reliever, Chris Martin.  Apparently, Cold Play is taking a break from touring.  I know nothing about the guy other than he's 6'8" and throws strikes.  He actually throws strikes, which is something the Bravos bullpen is dead last in.

Anyway, as long as we've got A.J. Minter setting up and Luke I'm Everybody's Bitch Jackson "closing" games, we will get overtaken, and much sooner than later.

So right on cue, the Braves are close to acquiring closer, Shane Greene from the Detroit Tigers.  Again, never even heard of him but the piece I read says he made the All Star team this year and has a 1.18 ERA in 38 innings.

BTW, the Braves were up 11-1 in the 8th last night and wound up winning 11-8.  This afternoon, they were up 4-1 going to the 8th and had to go 10 to win 5-4.

So bullpen help.....um, yeah!

I think Markakis is out for a while after getting plunked on the wrist the other night.  On another note, anyone see the Reds pitcher take on the entire Pirates dugout last night?  Kids got a set on him. However, I haven't seen more punches thrown and whiffed on in quite some time.

Apparently, the Reds and Buccos have a long running feud.  They started jawing back and forth and the Reds pitcher left the mound and charged the Pirates dugout. I mean, the dude started swinging on about 10 guys in front of the dugout.  It looked wild but the reality was that I'm not sure anyone threw a punch that landed.

I'm actually pumped about what the Bravos did.  Their line up is going to hit more often than not so I'm not worried about that.   Starting pitching really got a boost from Dallas Keuchel.  Dude is solid.  I would like to have seen them get another quality starter but it is what it is and they wound up really targeting the Achilles heel of this team, the bullpen.

Mark Melancon (SF)  4-2  3.50 ERA  183 career saves

Chris Cold Play Martin (Texas)  3.08 ERA  4 saves.  Most impressive stat:  43/4 strike out to walk ratio.  MUCH NEEDED!

Shane Greene (Det) 1.18 ERA  22 saves.


All of them look solid and all are better than the schleps we have down there now.

Well.....I was all fired up about the relief pitchers the Braves signed.  Shane Mr. All Star Greene, has pitched twice and gotten his shoot pushed in both times. 

I miss Luke Jackson.


Holy hell, what am I saying?

He's definitely crapped all over the bed.  Hits and runs in every inning he's pitched except for the 1/3 of an inning last night.  Even then he inherited one runner and allowed it to score.  

Not a good start for the supposed stopper.

Ok.  It’s official. 

fudge Shame Greene.  Send his ass packing.  

Helped ruin a seven scoreless inning starting effort by vomiting up hit after hit.  Was instrumental in turning a 6-2 ninth inning lead into a 7-6 loss.  

I’ve seen enough of this bag of richard ass.

No doubt.  But honestly, I'm trying to figure out how this guy had a 1.18 ERA and made the All Star team.  I don't see anything special about his stuff.  Average fast ball at best and a decent slider. 

We need to take this last game against the Mets because the dreaded Dodgers come to town tomorrow for 3.  We've been their bitch for quite a while now.

Less than 40 games to go in the season.  Cheatin' Cards and the Cubbies (Loved those Cubbies jerseys) are locked at the top of the NL Central.  Just a matter of time before the Cardinals start to pull away so they can fulfill their destiny to face the Yankees in the WS, (Birds in 5)

Braves amazingly took 2 of 3 from the Dodgers after being their bitch for 2 years.  They needed to take the series because the Nats have apparently discovered that chicks dig the long ball.  Don't need to face them right now.

Naturally, I have some serious man-love for Ronald Acuna, Jr.  Unbelievable talent to be so young.  But, I hope yesterday was a wake up call.  Actually, I have no problem with some extra celebrating and putting more overall fun in the game.  Bat flips?  Hell yes, launch that sucker 30 feet.  But when you stand there and admire what #1, wasn't a home run. #2 should have been a double and could have been a triple if he'd been running, and #C, you only get a single out of it. 

Sitcho ass down.

Taking 2 of 3 from the Dodgers obviously sent them in to a tail spin.  They only lead the division by 18.5 games now.  Damn they good.

Its gonna be close with the 3 game lead the Cardinals have. Its no secret the Cubs have had a major issue with road games. That being said, this next 8 game road series is going to tell the tale (4 in Milwaukee then 4 in SD). If the Cubs suck it up, I don't see them taking the division and perhaps not even a WC spot.

Central will be very interesting next few weeks.

Cubs: At SD for 4, at Pirates for 3, vs Reds for 3, vs Cards for 4, At Pirates for 3, at Cards for 3.

Brewers:  At Miami for 4, at Busch for 3, vs SD for 4, vs Pirates for 3, at Reds for 3, at Rox for 3.

Still think it will come down to those last 10 games for the Cubs/Cards.  Although with their schedule, 6.5 could be made up by the Brewers easily.

I see that but I also see how the Cubs been playing along with some bad timing injuries. Frankly they havent been playing with the intestinal fortitude to win the division. Right now the Cubs are 4.5 down and going on the road. Not a good spot. A few more losses and they will be out of the WC spot also.

Cubs benefit from Cardinals playing the Nats, too.  Nats take 2 of 3, and you guys can take the series vs Reds and Bucs, it's wide open.

My Red Sox are buried.  Any crazy hopes for a miracle were drowned in a pile of pinstripes.  So let's fire Dombrowski.  Why not? Look for Mookie to bolt in the off season.  JD is probably gone.  Hope they keep Devers, but I can see a dismantling coming.  

Meanwhile the baby Braves stay hot with some of the best young talent in baseball.  Acuna is just 20, Albies barely 21. Also got Soroka, a 20-year old, on the mound.   Behind those guys, Atlanta has probably the deepest, most talented farm system in MLB.  Could be setting up for a pretty decent run over the next few years.  There's a pretty good chance Atlanta wins 100 games this season.  If so, it would be the 9th time in franchise history, third only behind Yankees 19 (nobody's catching them) and the A's 10.  Will Atlanta win the East?  Magic Eight Ball says yes.  Will the Braves lose in either the DS or CS?  Eight ball says you can rely on it.  Fun team, just not going to make the WS.  

I'm over the Cubs. They were fun when they couldn't get there. Watching them win the World Series was another item crossed off the list of things I wanted to live long enough to see.  Since, though, the entitlement has really turned me off.  Never liked the Cards or the Reds (although I did like Johnny Bench). Despise the Yankees with a Bama-like passion. Astros do not move me. Nats can suck it.  Also entitled for reasons I fail to grasp.  Can't ever get behind the Twins because of Kent Hrbeck and the Lonnie Smith baseblunder that cost me what would have been one of the greatest sports moments of my life -- and instead left me depressed in the dark for nearly two full days, physically unable to get up. Dodgers can go blow a goat.  Hate them almost as much as the Yankees but that has waned since Atlanta's no longer in the NL West.  About the only other team I've ever had much interest in was the A's and that was really more a function of my affection for the Raiders back in the day.  They sort of went together.  When they turned into the clown brothers with those meatheads McGwire and Canseco I quit them altogether.  Don't think I've paid any attention to them since.

About 3-4 years ago, when the they affectively dismantled the Braves, I was pissed.  They were at least competitive and had a shot at the Wild Card most years.  But, it was clear they were going the way of the Astros and others who had done the same thing.  Burn it to the ground and start over from scratch.  I think the plan is actually way ahead of schedule as I don't think anyone envisioned what Acuna, Albies etc. could do at such young ages. 

I know I'm going at least half tard here, but I think they have a legit shot at making the WS.  The reason is they're getting a solid 7 from their starters just about every single night.  I say that and they'll get shelled tonight and be down 7-0 at the end of 3.  But last night, Foltyneciewicsavich had his second straight dominant outing.  If he continues and you add that to Soroka, Keuchel, Fried and Tayron, I think we can compete.

Yeah.  I was the same.  Thought they were throwing the baby and the bathwater out the door.  Felt bad for Freddie, who was really the only piece of the puzzle that stuck around.  Then they built that gaudy monument to excess up in the snoots and I was sort of done with it.  

Had a chance to go there last year when the Sox came to town and pretty quickly realized how smart that had actually been.  While the old Turner Field was fairly new and a pretty decent place to watch a game, SunTrust was more like home.  Everything that was going on in and around the park was infinitely better. Nobody with a gold grill and a dirty bandanna was axing me for $40 to make shore nothin happened to my ride (and who was nowhere to be found when you went back out to the car in the dark).  The shops and restaurants were all interesting.  Getting a table at one of the restaurants, even after a sellout game, wasn't hard to do.  Food was good, drinks were good, and it didn't break the bank. There were things to do outside the park as well as inside.  There's a freaking hotel right on the property and rooms weren't outrageous.  

It's a great place to watch a game and the atmosphere was super.  Bravo to the Bravos for that.

If so, it would be the 9th time in franchise history, third only behind Yankees 19 (nobody's catching them) and the A's 10.
And A's had to do it in 2 different cities. 

I'm shocked the Dodgers only has 6 100 win seasons (3 in Brooklyn and 3 in LA) and the Giants only have 7(4 in NY and 3 in SF).  Cubs with 7 and Cards with 9.

Even more impressive for the Braves, they had 6 100 win seasons between 1993 and 2003. With one of those years being a strike shortened season, too.

I think you'd find that during that stretch, we set the record for most average wins in a season while being punted from the playoffs in the 1st round.

I'm guessing Colorado doesn't allow chicken sacrifices in the locker room, because our bats are scared.

Dude, I don't know why you're worried about the Nats.  Magic number is 8.  You could go 8-7 and they would need to go 15-0, and you still get in.  Take a deep breathe, you're in.

Cubs need to take care of bidnezz with the Reds but they have trouble with them for whatever reason. If Cubs want to take the division, they really need to be no more than a game behind going into the Cards series.

As much as I hate to say it, and definitely don't want to see it, the Brewers are the ones to worry about more than anyone.  While the Cards and Cubs have both gone 5-5 in their last 10, the Beer Makers are 8-2.  You two may beat up on each other while they've got the lowly Pirates in for 3.  Then it's the Reds and Rockies to finish up.  (Even though you posted all that earlier)  There may be some mighty tight sphincters after this weekend.

Well I’ll admit that I’m still a little stunned the Bravos went on a tear and won the east after my prediction, but I know these Atlanta teams. 

They’ll blow it in the playoffs.

Cards clinched at least a Wildcard spot. Didn’t expect them to have the first 4 game sweep in Wrigley since 1921. 

But fudge, Milwaukee, could you please lose?

Magic number is 3.  Go .500 the rest of the way, and you win the division.

Brewers magic number to clinch a playoff spot is 1.

I think Snags was right, with the Cards/Cubs having the hardest road.  Watch, the Cubs will take 2 of 3 in St Louis this weekend, knocking the Cards out of the division and into a play in game vs Max Scherzer.

I think everyone knows where I stand on the Bravos.  My oldest son is all about the Bravos now and we watch a few innings together here and there.  It's all his little 9 yr old gnat sized attention span  can take.  This team is growing on me.  Lots of good young talent, plus Donaldson.  I would love for them to make a deep run in the playoffs and get some tickets for me and the boy.  So here's hoping that Snitker doesn't channel his inner Bobby Cox and get's it done.

We're doomed.  You just had to invoke the name of Early Exit Bobby, didn't you?

Obviously, I'm a lifer when it comes to the Braves and most sports ATL.  But yeah, I think this team would grow on most people with how they play and the fun they seem to have.  Granted, it's easy to have a lot of fun when you're winning.  But, guys like Albies and Acuna were acting like kids early last year when nothing was expected of them.

On a strategic note, I'm hoping Snit understands that one guy in particular needs to be dropped from the rotation for the playoffs.  Need to send Julio Tehran to the bullpen for long relief.  I haven't looked at the numbers, and I know he was solid in midseason, but every time I've seen him pitch down the stretch, he's getting hammered early and often...including last night.

We got this.  Even though Freddie Freeman, Ronald Acuna are out along with Charlie Culberson after he got his face smashed in by a fastball. 

Srsly, both Freeman and Acuna are supposed to be back. 

This is why I love this time of year.  Yep, it's more fun when your teams are doing more gooder.  Auburn is 4-0.  The Bravos in the playoffs along with the Cards.  (More fun when we can all talk shoot on the board down the stretch)  But last night is a prime example.  I turned on the ESPINS and they had the Rays, who are fighting for their own spot, against the Yankmees.  They cut away to Cards/Snakes in the 9th with the Birds down 9-5 but the bases loaded and 1 out.  They drive in 2 runs to make it 9-7 and up strolls Paul Goldmember, who had hit more dingers in that ballpark than anyone in history, with 2 on and 1 out.  Okay, this is good shoot right here. 

No, he didn't come through, but all I thought of is that the Central race just went down to a 1 1/2 game lead and this weekend is going to be tasty.

And not stressful at all.  Last weekend was almost perfect, college and pro-team wise, for me.  Cards/Saints did well.  Auburn won, but that team up the road won, so college I went .500.  shoot, even the kids sports did well (except soccer, and that's because they have a shootty coach).  This weekend, it's going to be payback.  Saints will lose to the Cowboys and WE!!! will gloat.  Cubs will take 2 of 3 vs Cards, and Buzz will gloat, and I'll have to end up pulling a Nook.

At this point, I'm just glad we don't have any Misstake fans around.

The reason why I dont think they go Rossy is because they have so many free agency contracts coming up and they gonna need a guy in there to at least manage to get through the next couple of seasons. I do see Rossy brought in as an assistant with the idea of him taking the skipper job later.

And, I wouldn't be surprised to see this hire made this week.

No reason in particular to pick Oakland, other than they usually don't blow it until the ALCS.  And the Brewers had been on a tear until dropping 2 of 3 in Colorado, but I think they can win vs the Nats.

5 things for Cardinal fans to know about the Braves...

STL Today (https://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseball/professional/hummel-things-for-cardinals-fans-to-know-about-the-braves/article_f9bad888-23c8-5e7e-9d30-d371da1f3fc0.html)


Quote
5. Donaldson has been worth the money

Third baseman Josh Donaldson, after whom many Cardinals fans thirsted in the offseason, has proven to be even more than the Braves, who paid him $23 million for one year, might have hoped for. A calf injury, among other ailments, had limited the former American League star to 52 games last year but he played 155 for the Braves this season, starting 148, including more than 100 at one stretch. Donaldson paid off with 37 homers, 94 RBIs and a .900 OPS while playing an elite third base. He is a difference maker, too, in a youth-dominated clubhouse.

Soto.  He is young and going to be damned good.  I watched him against the Bravos this year and that kid needs to be on my O's.

I'm talking about the right fielder for the Brewers who ran by the ball and let the winning run score and blow their entire season.

The last third, or 241/405th of the season, it was the starting pitching that kept everything together.  We were getting 6 or 7 solid innings just about every night out and the offense was doing just enough to take most series.  The line up, just about top to bottom, was pounding the ball all year until Markakis and Dansby went down.  The top 4 have continued to hit but the rest of the line up has never been the same. 

I'm still optimistic, though.  This team has been resilient all year.  If they bounce back tonight, we've got ourselves a series.

The second double in the 9th was foul. Furthermore, Goldslagger came off the bag. Albies was safe, should have been tied. I’m still confident we would have lost in extra innings though.

Which leads me to a pet peeve I have had about replay in sports...

This happens much more in football, but that play at first was a prime example. "If they had called him safe the play would have stood."
Too many times you hear this.  That leaves the decision really back in the referee/umpire's hands.  Either you can get the camera angles necessary to have a true review or you don't.  Why waste everyone's time with that crap?

Agree on the first part, but I couldn't argue on the foot coming off.  Looked like he held it to me, but certainly wasn't clear enough to overturn the call.  (Just saw Buzz' post.  Agreed)

Assuming they called that ball foul and further assuming we get the guy out after that, (Huge assumption with the way Meloncamp was pitching) that would have held it to 5-3.  We scored 3 in the 9th, which would have won it.

Hey....we really won last night.  fudge you, cheating Cards.

Seriously though, giving up 14 hits and 7 runs spells doom 99% of the time.  I think/hope they even it up tonight.

With the exception of Tehran, our starting pitching has been the strength of the team all year.  Like you guys, you never have a clue what will happen with the pen.  

Nats just went up 2-0 on the Dodgers.  Like I said earlier, both of us have a better shot with Washington.  Having said that, I have no idea how you did against LA.  We're normally their prison bitch.

We went 4-3 vs then this year. 
But since 2004, we have faced them 3 times in the post season, and beaten them each time. 

2004 - NLDS won 3-1

2013 - NLCS won 4-2

2014 - NLDS won 3-2

I went back to 04 since that was Molina’s first year with the Cards.

Horrible coaching in the later part of this game.  Leadoff triple to start 7th and leadoff double to start 9th and Atlanta can’t get runner across.  

7 runners left on bases in last 3 innings because the Braves wouldn’t play national league baseball. Everyone swinging for the fence instead of trying to advance runner. This game will haunt them.

When you get yourself in a position that you have to bring Julio Tehran in for extra innings because you pulled Newcomb and Tomlin who both pitched good innings, you are guaranteeing a loss. 

This cardinal team made mistakes they never make. Center fielder misplaying a ball, Molina going after a pop up that should have been Carpenter’s, Carpenter mishandling a ball at 3rd. To overcome that, it won’t surprise me in the least if they take game 5 with ease.

I'm loving the passion and the chippiness from both teams.  If chippiness is not a word, it is now because I just made it up.  There's all kinds of barking and throat slashing and mocking etc.  Love it!  Yes, I'm a traditionalist and I think there needs to be respect for the unwritten rules of the game.  However, I also think those rules need to be relaxed to allow players to show out a bit more and get the crowds into it. 

If I hit one 450 feet into the left field bleachers, I want to by God bat flip that Louisville Slugger like a helicopter 20 feet in the air.  As the rules stand now, I'm taking a 95 m.p.h. Rawlings under the chin in my nest at bat.

I haven't seen much chatter, but then I haven't really paid that much attention.  I think it's awesome the way the intensity rachets up in the playoffs.  Fist pumps, throat slashes, bat tosses.  Hells yes!

Here's the thing.  I'm sure that anyone not a Braves fan thinks Ronald Acuna is a punk.  If you go by some of those unwritten rules in MLB, maybe he is.  But he's our punk.  Seriously, he's a 21 year old who was playing this way early last year when the Braves weren't any good.  He has a blast on the field along with Ozzie Albies.  I want more of that.  I know not one person will agree with me, but I love Bryce Harper's attitude.  Hate the Phillies, but I wish more players played with his fire.

St. Louis holds top spot in chlamydia and gonorrhea, STDs reach all-time high across U.S.

St. Louis has retained the dubious distinction of leading the nation in sexually transmitted diseases, ranking first in 2018 among counties and independent cities for the rate of gonorrhea (https://www.cdc.gov/std/gonorrhea/stdfact-gonorrhea.htm) and — after dropping to third place a year ago (https://www.stltoday.com/news/local/metro/st-louis-holds-on-to-one-std-title-loses-another/article_cee03afc-7dc4-555b-9b48-a09c54f2703d.html) — regaining the top spot for chlamydia (https://www.cdc.gov/std/chlamydia/stdfact-chlamydia.htm). The city was fourth for its syphilis (https://www.cdc.gov/std/syphilis/stdfact-syphilis.htm) rate.

From a baseball perspective, it sucks to be Clayton Kershaw this morning.  I stayed up and watched the whole thing last night.  In fact, way more than I did the Braves. But Kershaw comes in in relief with a 3-1 lead.  Strikes out the last batter of the inning on 3 pitches. He threw 3 more pitches in the game.  Two of those left Dodger Stadium. 

It was like my high school coach after I took a come-backer to the mound and promptly threw it over the first baseman's head and down the right field line.  He took a slow stroll out to the mound and imparted the following words of wisdom that I have carried with me through life ever since.  He said:

shoot!!!  Just shoot.

Agree.

Snit made some horrible pitching decisions. Thought soroka should have went games 1 and 4/5. Folty wasn’t gonna pitch two gems in a row. And not against flaherty. And the decision to use Jackson in critical times (game 1) is a head scratcher.

That aside, the braves middle of the lineup was cold cold cold with RISP. I said it last week but a team like the cards will make you pay for that. You cant fudge around like that in the  playoffs with seasoned teams.

13-1 isn’t what hurts. What hurts is this game shouldn’t have even happened. They had them on the mat and let them back up. You don’t let Ali or Tyson or foreman back up.  And it’s all on them. 

I do not like snit. He’s not a playoff manager.

Don’t disagree. But even cox didn’t make some of the obvious boneheaded moves Snit made. Agree with token - why go away from what worked all year? Soroka was obvious. And sorry to say this but fukkk Freddie. I get he’s hurt. And if he was he should speak up. Because a replacement would have hit better than .138. He was Ice cold all series.

On a related note, if one of these match ups has Scherzer and Wainwright on the bump, I may have to go rub one out.

This is the first decade the Yankees haven't had at least one team play in the World Series since the 1920s.  A hundred years.  

That's insane.  

I'd be happier if it had been ten years since the Yankholes had a winning record, but this is interesting at least.  100 years.

Speaking of intramurals, coming down Wire Rd. into Auburn earlier this year, right around fraternity row, it looks like some bad ass softball fields off to the right.  Those may have been there a while and I just missed them.  Is that what they've built for intramural softball?

What I saw was right between the frat houses on the right going in.  It was kind of a WTF moment.  Really nice but I only saw it driving by.  They cleared off that field for intramural sports when I was up there.  We played football and softball and basically had a backstop and some bases for the ballsoft.

The funny thing was to see what people named their teams in both football and softball.  For a couple of years, I was on a team called The Loggerheads.  We pretty much played a lot of sports and smoked a bunch of pot.  We were really good in football but couldn't get over the hump against the Kudzu Cowboys.  Jerry's Kids were pretty good too.

It is was it us I suppose. If Ross can man up and be the boss then so be it. I'm a bit concerned about that. Maybe he can bring in a better pitching and hitting coach. I think most Cub fans would feel much better.

Daaaaaannng.  The Nats just poured it on the Astros.  Now they go home with a 2-0 lead.  Little known fact that I discovered after hours of research and hearing sports announcers say it 300 plus times over the last two days. 

The Nats started the season 19-31.  Since then, they have the best record in biesbols at 84-40, which includes 10-2 so far in the playoffs.  Maybe the Stros shouldn't have been such a heavy favorite in this series.

Daaaaaannng.  The Nats just poured it on the Astros.  Now they go home with a 2-0 lead.  Little known fact that I discovered after hours of research and hearing sports announcers say it 300 plus times over the last two days.

The Nats started the season 19-31.  Since then, they have the best record in biesbols at 84-40, which includes 10-2 so far in the playoffs.  Maybe the Stros shouldn't have been such a heavy favorite in this series.
fudge the stros and their paid for roster and bandwagon fudgein fans.

I was in New Orleans Friday through Sunday so I saw little or nothing of games 3, 4 and 5.  Watched just about the entire game last night and I've given into the fact that I'm pulling for the Nats.  No real reason other than they were a decided underdog going into this series. 

Useless tidbit of info here.  I guess I had just never heard an interview with Anthony Rendon, so I've always had it in my mind that he was Hispanic.  Rendon sounds Spanish and he looks the part. (Profiling here)  I was googled chroming him to see his salary.  He's from Virginia.  Played college ball at Rice.  Plus, I think it's time he got paid.  Dude is making $2.8 mil.

Cubs just need to show up.  Dancing their way to a 100 win regular season and fox trotting through the playoff sweeps.


Or maybe they need some younger starting pitchers.  Yeah...that's it.  More better pitching.
And a true leadoff hitter.  And a real left fielder.
Oh, and a real closer.

They are close though.

Is he paying? 

Braves:  They have 3 or 4 really good, young starting pitchers.  They need to add that one Scherzer/Cole/Kershaw type ace to the staff.  Yeah, that sounds like a strategy no one has ever heard of there, Captain Obvious.  But, they've been good enough to make the playoffs the past two years and it's clear they don't have that stud to put them over the top like everyone else has.

I like their line up but I'm afraid Donaldson was just a rent-a-bat this year.  He's at well over $20 mil and I can't see the Braves signing him long term at his age.  Would love it, but I don't see it happening.  So, they'll need a big stick to replace him.  Top priority is also a catcher.  McCann retired and Flowers is just Gawd Awful.

Maybe they can work up a trade with the Cubs to get Schwarber.  He's a natural catcher, plus his .177 average as a leadoff hitter is hard to beat.

As bad as Flowers is, I'm not sure I want to give his cool .193 average for that.  After all, he did almost hit 5 home runs this year.

BTW, I met Callaway and his wife a few years ago down at Santa Rosa Beach.  They were living temporarily in a house across the street from one we were renting.  We were watching AU/Mississippi State that Saturday and they checked out a little of it with us.  He was pitching corch for the Indians at the time.  He's a Hobby Lobby grad so he was pulling against Dak Prescott.  His wife is hawt.

Yep, that's about it for my celebrity status.  I once met a fired MLB manager.  Did I mention is wife was hawt?
