BTW, I feel kinda bad for the D-Backs. If there's a way to lose, they will find it. That bullpen is a fucking tire fire.

Um, why? (Rockies fans no likey the D-backs...or D-bags as we tend to call them  ;D)

Well, neither do Dodger fans but having just watched them get swept by those Dodgers in such disheartening fashion, I kinda pity them in a way. I mean, they've lost 10 in-a-row. They haven't scored a run in 31 innings. That's just wrong.


After thinking about it I did feel bad, but the Rockies did sweep them too, so....

And it would be great if the D-backs started winning games again....starting Monday (after they play the Rocks again  ;D)

Wow, I have become one of those fans

Yikes, if your aged closer has an ERA over 11, might be time to bring up the closer from AA or AAA and give them the job.

That WHIP is hideous, and to think he's coming off a .907 last season in association w/ a career 1.058. It's really been something to watch as I've never seen anything like this before. He just cannot locate his pitches any longer for which nullifies his changeup making him completely useless.  No one wants to see a 1st-ballot HOF'er go out like this...

On the bright side for us, Braddock & Axford have been called up, and the latter has become the closer to date w/ great results. Axford also sports the best 'stache in the game presently and in some time...



But nevertheless, we're 54 games into the season and my bullpen's already gassed.  :P

Aren't they keeping him around so that he can (someday) reach 600 saves?

As of our last homestand, the "Countdown to 600" is still hanging up in left field at Miller Park!

It's stupid.  :P

Weird to hear that Griffey's checking out. 

He's my Willie Mays!   :)

Outside of players from my Crew, he's my all-time favorite player, and was an absolute thrill during his first stint in Seattle...

Thanks for the memories, Ken!!

Ortiz         - 27/79 16R 9HR 27RBI .367 1.213OPS

Holy crap!  :D

I didn't know he sported that OPS for the month...way to motivate him, Tito.

Did I just see that Capuano has 19 straight losses? And that hasn't happened since something like 1915?

As a long time Pads fan, I love the guy, but we were grumbling that it was time for Trevor to think about packing it in three seasons ago.  Sad that he couldn't just go gently into that good announcing booth.

Jamie finally gets his 100th win since turning 40, a complete game, and the Phillies finally score more than the Flyers.  ;D  :highfive:

Strasburg's Debut

IP    H    R   ER   BB   SO   HR   PC-ST   ERA
7.0   4    2     2     0      14      1     94-65    2.57

Got the win. Got 21 outs, 14 of them via strikeout.

"Of those 94 pitches he threw, he launched 34 of them at 98 miles per hour or faster -- 16 at 98, 16 at 99 and two at 100." -ESPN

Whoa.

EDIT: This is just nasty. Look at the movement! The pitch to Young is just ridiculous.

Do you know what's ridiculous, Barnes? His curveball has more velocity than 80% of my rotation's fastballs.  :D

That's mind-boggling to think he didn't yield a walk, either. Way to go, Stephen!

Answer me this, MLB...why did you schedule the first round of the draft on a Monday?!! Come on, Bud.   :)

Tried watching the baseball draft, but god was it boring.   The NFL has a much better draft experience for the fans.

Good thing Stassburg did not get drafted by the Reds, or Dusty would have let him throw a 140 pitch complete game.

This video, in a nutshell, is why I fucking hate what ESPN has become over the last ten years or so... It's a 4+ minute clip and a mere 30 seconds is actual highlights and 3.5 minutes of jibber-jabber with some freakin analyst telling us that 14 strikeouts is like, good and stuff.

Imagine if Strassberg played for the Red Sox...... Peter Gamons would already have him in the hall of fame.

The pennant race is over...... the Cardinals just signed Jeff Suppan!

I can only imagine the thoughts that will flow through the Brew fans' heads if Suppan goes back to his Cardinals 2006 form.......
