Hopefully not. Screw the Giants and the ridiculous beard.

Re: MLB Thursday, August 11, 2011

Hell of a season Curtis Granderson is putting together.

#1 in the MLB in run scores with 104
#1 in RBI in the MLB with 93 (temporarily passing Adrian Gonzo with a 2 run HR today).
Tied for #2 in HR also after that HR today

All that with a a solid 22 stolen bases and a not great but respectable .275 batting average.

Not the leagues MVP but he's certainly having an MVP caliber season.

The Phillies finally get a day off after a 20 games in 20 days stretch.

Re: MLB Thursday, August 11, 2011

The Cardinals record at home is pathetic.

Time for them to clean house - starting w/ the General Manager and Manager.

Not the leagues MVP but he's certainly having an MVP caliber season.
He also walks a ton... so he ends up getting on base as much as someone like say Jacoby Ellsbury despite hitting 40points lower.

The projection at his current pace is also somewhat absurd... 45HR/130RBI/147runs/31 steals... from a centerfielder who's primarily been batting 2nd. I don't think he should win the MVP at this point (I still think Batista is the MVP right now even though he's cooled off) but Grandy should get some consideration.

Wow, Arizona gets a PH homer from the rookie Goldschmidt to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth.

Those are the type of game changing plays that end up winning a team the division.

Nice win for the good guys. Would love to see Gibson take this team to a division title in his first full season.

We'll see if the Giants figure things out and get things back to normal. 10 game road trip starts tomorrow. @ FLA, ATL, and HOU.

Great win tonight!

The Giants september schedule is such a cake walk that I just can't see the Dbacks winning the NL West.

Stranger things have happened though.

The Dbacks play essentially the same schedule. Plus they play 6 games against each other, so it'll be going down to the wire.
