    Re: Scoreboard Watching 2012

    The Cards have made a mess of this early. 9-0 Cubbies heading into the bottom of the fourth. It's good enough to watch the Redbirds lose, it's another thing entirely to watch them lose in a wholly demoralizing fashion.
    2014 Reds record: 1-2

    I look like a banker in this...

    Just saw the strangest triple play in the Dodger/Padre game.

    Runners on first and second, Jose Guzman tries to bunt, but the pitch is headed toward his head. He pulls his bat back for protection, and the ball hits his bat. It first lands in foul territory, then rolls into fair territory. Dale Scott, the home plate ump, first signaled that the ball was foul, then when it rolled into fair territory, he signaled it was fair. The runners, thinking it was foul stayed on their respected bases, and Guzman stayed at home. Ellis, the Dodger catcher, picked it up and threw the ball to third, who then threw it to second, who threw it to first. Triple play.

    Crazy.

    I'll post a link once it's up on MLB.com

    That was crazy, and a terrible call, IMO.

    Agreed with both of you. As much as I was complaining about Laz Diaz yesterday for being unfair to both teams, that is a gamechanging call made against the Padres and that home plate umpire should be reprimanded. You are taught to stop when the umpire puts his hands up and there is no going back once he makes that gesture.

    Another crazy ump call, but this one I agreed with.

    In the Phillie/Padre game tonight, Josh Spence, a soft tossing lefty, tossed a 60 MPH curve to Shane Victorino, that Victorino clearly leaned into in order to get hit. The home plate ump, Dan Billino, immediatley called Victorino back and didn't give him first base. A very good call that is rarely called right. A few pitches later, Victorino crushed a homer.

    One of the funniest AB's I've seen in awhile.

    The Yankees just put up 7 runs in the 7th and 7 runs in the 8th to go up 15-9 on the Red Sox in one of the most ridiculous games I've ever seen.

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    In all seriousness, Bobby V may not last much longer up there.

    AJ Burnett went 7 innings with 3 hits, 2 BB, 5 K's and no runs against STL. About as good as a debut the Buccos could have asked for.

    He just got an official vote of confidence from Cherington, so I give Valentine two weeks.

    Through 14 games, there have been 68 runs scored TOTAL in Pirates games.

    That's 2.43 runs per team per game.

    Milwaukee lost today and even as bad as we've looked at times, we have the same 7-9 record as they do.
