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.

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.

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?

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

damn Boston is destroying the Stankees

Today’s Brewers/Cards game is only viewable on Facebook.

fuck that

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 11 April 2018 14:34 (one year ago) link

wtf I thought FSN got all 162 games this year

so dumb

not as dumb as last night's game though ;)

frogbs, Wednesday, 11 April 2018 14:54 (one year ago) link

That game seemed excruciating for both teams, at least until the last bit. A lot of the Brewers/cards games have been like that so far! Must see, excruciating baseball

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 11 April 2018 15:00 (one year ago) link

lost in the "Brewers have won nearly every game in the final at-bat" narrative is the "Brewers have blown every save opportunity so far" one

yeah, i'll be hitting that up today for sure. so annoying, though, esp as a recently departed facebook user. makes me dislike zuck even more

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 11 April 2018 16:13 (one year ago) link

Holy crap this FB stream is obnoxious. "How about that routine ground out? Brewers fans, what do you think? Join the conversation!"

"Many Cards fans in the comments section saying, 'Come on St. Louis! Put some runs on the board!'"

(That's an actual thing they just said... this is the most banal announcing I've ever heard)

"He wants to go downtown here! A little Petula Clark."

Evan R, Wednesday, 11 April 2018 19:27 (one year ago) link

I love that--should be turned into verb: "He Petula Clarked that one!"

clemenza, Wednesday, 11 April 2018 19:44 (one year ago) link

Brewers fans, do you want to see your team out there for the 9th? I bet you do!

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 11 April 2018 19:44 (one year ago) link

"Cardinals fans were fuming the other night, and for good reasons. Some didn't want to see him in a high leverage situation. Some didn't want to see him walk four batters."

Deep insight into the mind of a Cardinals fan.

Evan R, Wednesday, 11 April 2018 19:52 (one year ago) link

"A lot of Brewers fans would rather they left Josh Hader in" whoa these guys are dialed in

frogbs, Wednesday, 11 April 2018 20:03 (one year ago) link

"He's throwin' BEACH BALLS up there!" okay lmao that is quality commentary
