contract both teams imo

Max Scherzer pretty much at top form. Scooter Genette got a double off of him and it must have just ticked Max off as he struck out the next 7 batters.

(fwiw: Scooter 4/4 on the day)

A-Rod does not like the launch angle revolution.

The Yankees haven’t been outside the top two in MLB payroll since 1994, the last time a baseball season ended without a World Series.

trend: it seems like just about every single pitcher talks into their glove when heading toward the dugout after recording the final out of the inning, just before it cuts to commercial.

oh to be a leather strap on that glove

#Rays Kiermaier will try something new today to combat cold weather vs #Yankees - covering his whole body with Vaseline to serve as an extra layer against the wind.

it's gonna be exciting if he has to slide into a base

Ryan Braun is actually really nice. I saw him being all friendly and cordial with the security guy, someone who everyone else just walked by without saying a word. He’s cool! Didn’t expect that.

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 3 April 2018 20:11 (one year ago) link

But if one person that I thought was a dick was nice, what does that mean about all the other people I thought were dicks? Could they be nice people too? No, I bet that I am correct about all the other people and that none of them are nice, better to just keep a closed mind so that things are steady and reliable

Jon Lester threw out Ryan Braun trying to steal third, with his new bounce pass strategy.

na (NA), Friday, 6 April 2018 00:47 (one year ago) link

to be fair it's a pretty slo-mo steal attempt

Question for the crowd?

Under the current labor agreement, is it possible for there to be a player/manager anymore?

Seeing a story about Frank Robinson becoming player/manager for the Indians got me wondering why that gimmick had not been done lately.

I was trying to think of a player/manager after Pete Rose with the Reds and could not think of one. Was Rose the last one?

earlnash, Monday, 9 April 2018 11:33 (one year ago) link

i regret watching the victor robles injury video :(

not sure about the CBA but seems like that's just too much work for one person, not sure why a player would ever want to take on that responsibility/pressure

k3vin k., Tuesday, 10 April 2018 00:22 (one year ago) link

yeah i think it's theoretically possible but will never happen again

mookieproof, Tuesday, 10 April 2018 00:59 (one year ago) link

A scoring change from March 30 awarded Scott Kingery a steal on a play that was originally ruled a wild pitch. So now, Kingery joins Jimmy Rollins as the only Phillies since 1900 with multiple hits and a steal in their MLB debut.

Molina suspended for one game. Jeez, MLB are some cranks; I think the poor guy's learned his lesson

Evan R, Tuesday, 10 April 2018 21:09 (one year ago) link

bumping/shoving an umpire is an automatic suspension. that it's only one game suggests that MLB doesn't think it was malicious

mookieproof, Tuesday, 10 April 2018 21:14 (one year ago) link

Apparently the d-bag manager pointed toward Yadi and referred to him with an “adjective”, I think that’s what set him off.

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 10 April 2018 21:17 (one year ago) link

he charged a manager from the dugout, shoved an ump and started to take a swing. It seemed pretty malicious to me. Has any player shoved umpires more and been punished less for it than Molina?

Evan R, Tuesday, 10 April 2018 21:18 (one year ago) link

he didn't charge from the dugout? he wildly overreacted to lovullo's backhanded praise of his framing skills -- some version of 'fuck' is in every single sentence on a baseball field -- and tried to get at lovullo with the ump in the way

i mean, yadi is an annoying redass, but he didn't actually hit anyone

mookieproof, Tuesday, 10 April 2018 21:37 (one year ago) link

ah, I got confused watching the video about his positioning. Still seems insanely inconsistent to me. Last year Willson Contreras got a two-day suspension for bouncing a helmet that accidentally hit an ump. Brett Lawrie once got four games for the same thing. One game for shoving an ump directly seems generous.

Evan R, Tuesday, 10 April 2018 21:48 (one year ago) link

Cubs deserved to lose after that god awful rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” by Mike Ditka. That was one of the worst things I’ve ever heard

frogbs, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 00:00 (eleven months ago) link

Ditka was the worst thing to happen to Chicago sports let alone the Bears.

Dodger stadium is empty

Reported attendance was about 37 K (> 80 percent full) but maybe that was in the middle innings? Seeing the stadium so empty at the start of the game was ... weird.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 09:23 (eleven months ago) link

NARRATOR'S VOICE: It's always empty for the first few innings (and often the last few).
