Not one .300 hitter in the lineup. Equally bad OBP and OPS. We'd need 4 more Cole's to be competitive.

This is kinda tough to watch. How long are they gonna leave Skeeball out there?

Winnie, are you the sole inhabitor of the digital domain this evening?

As always, you are the arbiter of truth for this site.

This is indeed tough to watch. Time for Rachel Maddow.

Sorry guys.

Martini night, so not so sober. Well that and it's friday martini night.

Are the tiggers as bad as the toilet bowls?

Not watching, just looking at the box. I guess Judge is due to pull something.

For you Winnie:

Fuck you Hal and your minions.

Who woke up Hicks?

TheWinWarblist said...

The Tigers are quite the eye-opener. Apparently.

TheWinWarblist said...

Thank you Rufus T., thank you.

Nice to see Tiny get a grand slam, but I'll be much happier when he starts banging out singles and doubles. Love Judge, but wish we had traded him two years ago.

We still suck.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Winnie, the respect is all on this side of the table.

Oh, and fuck you Hal. Hoping for that incurable boil on your hemorrhoid -- unable to surgically correct in the men's high security prison.

Did I mention martinis?

Still fire Boone, fire Ca$hman, fire Hal. Get me an owner that is a FAN!

Hicks, Judge, and Stanton has two hits. Tonight’s trivia question…when was the last time that happened?

Holy tamole, we hit double digits in run, only 26 games in!!

Well, hey. Great to see.

This is what could save us: the American League in general this year is somewhat below your average Double-A team from 20 years ago.

Why, Hoss, oh why is this? OK - I gave up 2020 as the asterisk year is was, but there seems to be an ongoing devaluation of the game in general. I find it nearly impossible to watch a game anymore. Idiocy seems to reign over the entire AL, and it ain't pretty and it ain't gettin' better. Yesterday's game at Camden Yards was simply one of the poorest managed games I have ever witnessed, on both sides.

Can we simply write this off as greed?

Can it really all be attributed to the CyberMetrics?

I have said for a long time that I blame the death of critical thought in America to social media. Is this the baseball equivalent?

TheWinWarblist said...

Basically still in last place ...

Is it possible that Cole could become the second pitcher in history to win a Cy Young with a last place club?

Anon: Critical thinking started to dissolve in the sixties, but started to really spiraled downward in the middle eighties. I think that you're on to something, bringing baseball into the topic. Ownership knows that people will eat up what the media chuckle-heads tell us regarding pro sports getting better than ever (GOATS now come along in 4-6 year cycles), qualitative analysis is always better than intuition. And since players can't effectively get disciplined for lack of mental or physical effort (fining is often met with derision), the media, management, ownership troika starts to tell us that we saw something else. One thing I KNOW, the stars of the past, forged in the crucibles of The Depression and war would stomp players guts out today. Bat control, situational hitting, base running, coupled with plenty of power in the bats, and arms... forget......about.....it. Need I go into the vast gaps in mental and physical toughness? That's all I've got for now, sue me if I wrote too long. Cheers!

What the fuck did Alomar do??

Kevin: thank you for the single most coherent, informed, and sane response I've received on this website since I first stumbled across it about a decade ago. With all due respect to respect to M Duque & Cie, this is the kind of repartee I most enjoy.
