The Latest


John Sterling was quoted in an article in yesterday's NY Post defending his much-maligned Italianate home run call for Giancarlo Stanto.


In my humble opinion, he took a few steps toward redeeming himself with his call for Tyler Austin's awesome 2-run homer in the fifth:
Austin Powers One!

Sure beats hell out of “Non si può de stoparlo!”


Shagadelic, baby.

Betances in mid season form. Chapman was in his appearance last night, too. They should replace Rothschild with a sports psychiatrist, might be a better idea.

It wasn't a pineapple, but close.

Toonces pisses me off. He isn't 22 anymore. Learn the four king game chunkhead!

1. I saw this and felt like the Master was threatening us. Sort of like the old King who was terrific early on, but as he aged and his mind faded he became incompetent and saw enemies everywhere. Similar to, though not exactly, Louis XIV. Brought France to it's greatest period of power and influence, but his later wars eventually drove the country to ruin.

2. All of these injuries and yet Betances is the Iron Horse. I just wish there was a way to have an anvil drop from the sky and land on his right shoulder.

No mention on radio about Stanton covering second base on the play that scored toronto's second run. Nice play -- the guy is thinking in the field. Except the rest of the game sucked if you take out Austin's shagadelic homers.

Betances is Tyler Clippard 2.0. Jeez what a horror show.

What Toronto did to Betances should be illegal. Toronto, with intent and malice, taunted this poor challenged man child past his breaking point. It’s the equivalent of wheelchair tipping. Betances is not guilty by reason of insanity.

I'M BEING HONEST HERE, AND I DON'T THINK I AM OVERREACTING....

I THINK BETANCES IS DONE.

YOU CAN'T BE A LATE INNING RELIEVER AND HAVE 2 MORTAL SINS AGAINST YOU.

NO CONTROL, AND NO IDEA HOW TO HOLD RUNNERS ON.

WHEN HE LETS ONE OR 2 GUYS ON, AND THEY START RUNNING ALL OVER THE PLACE, HIS CONTROL GETS WORSE.

THEY ARE SITTING ON HIS FASTBALL NOW TOO.

THIS HASN'T JUST STARTED, IT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR QUITE A WHILE NOW.

CASHMAN SHOULD HAVE ALREADY DEALT HIM....HE SHOULD STILL TRY NOW, AND SEE WHAT WE CAN GET.

CONE KEEPS SAYING, "YOU CAN'T GIVE UP ON HIS STUFF, NO WAY."

YES WAY..... IT'S MENTAL, AND REMEMBER IT'S 2 MORTAL MISTAKES, NOT JUST 1.

IT'S A MESS.

HE'S A MESS.

HE HAS TO BE A MOP-UP MAN NOW.

Can we get a zero-turn mower for Betances trade?

HoraceClarke66 said...

Agreed. I can't go through another 2017 with Toonces. Deal him for whatever you can get—preferably to the NL.

At least they weren't breaks. Still, this sucks.

HEY, WE STILL MAY BE ABLE TO GET SOMETHING DECENT FOR BETANCES.

AS RELIEVERS GO, HE STILL HAD BIG NUMBERS LAST YEAR.

HOSS IS RIGHT, DEAL HIM TO AN N.L. TEAM.
