Looks like Baltimore is starting to head for the bottom of the division. They will have a tough time punching through the Rays and Red Sox though.

Fewest runs in the league and the Twins are on pace for 40 homers.

Orioles suck when it comes to roster management. They are obsessed with carrying useless relief pitchers and have a poor bench. Their backup catcher is also the backup first basemen,third basemen and left fielder. If he pinch hits,the team has no backup catcher. They have 5 short reliefers. Whenever they have a day off,that should mean that the 5th starter should be the long guy in the bullpen but never works out that way.

I'm starting to feel bad for the Twins starters. Worthless offense and worthless closers that are all making way more money. Why bother.

The Mets drop a double dip to the Braves and have now lost 7 straight. Beltran and Reyes hopefully have their houses on the market if they own anything in NYC. They're gonna be gone soon.

Cards continue to pound the ball beating Kershaw and the Dodgers 9-2. Feels good to be above .500.

Only 13 hits tonight for the Cards, the had at least 14 hits for 6 games in a row for first time since 1930. They are rolling!

starman, I turned your Saturday thread into a weekend thread since we usually don't get a lot of action in these threads over the weekend.

Re: MLB Weekend Thread, April 16-17, 2011

Looks like no TV for MLB extra innings for the second Mil/Nationals game because of the late start(unless they play the first game under 2 hrs which now a days is next to impossible). Gee Nats-start the first game earlier so everyone can watch the second game. Don't understand why the Orioles/Indians game was shown on MLB extra innings yesterday because it started past 110pm. I thought that no game could be televised after that time until 7pm because Fox has the exclusive window of time for the 4pm game.
