Here's hoping the rain holds off tonight in Chicago - I get to take the lineup card to home plate!

Cool! I didn't know they even did that sort of thing.

Crazy that AJ is going onto his first stint on the DL after all these years.

I'm part of the Sox Pride Club and they run contests for it. Apparently I got lucky!

Thankfully Flowers has looked OK so far. Gotta be rough for AJ sitting like that giving his history. I have a feeling he won't be back this year.

Some things in life are constant and it gives comfort to one that they can be counted on. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west; the tide comes in and goes out; mgbfan contributes at least one douchey comment to each MLB thread....circle of life.

And no, we only have parades when we win championships, which I do believe is a bit more recent in Chicago baseball than your team.

Re: MLB Wednesday, August 17, 2011

If you're going to say you belong to the Sox Pride Club, you've got to see it coming. It almost goes against DVDTalk code not to say something snarky to that. I mean, the Sox Pride Club. Seriously.

Dbacks ended Cliff Lee's scoreless streak on a Goldschmidt bomb. Too bad Saunders looks very shaky tonight.

JJ sucks for the Braves tonight.

Giants have five runs and we're only in the 4th inning.

He looks so bad the Phils can't get anything going against him.
Ryan Howard looks like a minor leaguer this year against lefties.
He swings at a ball 2 feet off the plate then Pence walks.

Luckily except for the homer, Lee is in a groove.

2 hits for the D's and 3 for the Phils.

The Phils brought up a reliever who is 9-1 and a 2.88 era. Ten saves in AAA.

Re: MLB Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Granderson with his 34th HR and a double in his first 2AB's with 2 more runs scored (while runs scored is not the most meaningful stat the guy is on pace for 150 runs)

ESPN is going to have to step up their ridiculous "but the advanced defensive #'s don't look so good" argument as to why he's not a serious MVP contender (because those are so meaningful over a 1 year period... it's not like some of those same metrics have Nick Swisher as the best RF in the AL this year and Delmon Young being better than Josh Hamilton...oh wait, they do? )

Uh oh did Ryan Howard hurt himself swinging wildly at a ball well out of the strike zone?

Re: MLB Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Figured the Dbacks would shit the bed here late in the game. Once they kept getting a few guys on base and grounding into double plays, it was over. Lee was dealing and it was inevitable that the Phillies would start hitting again.

I do have faith about tomorrow, though, since Kennedy is going.

I'm thinking maybe people whose thoughts tend to lean towards thinking about gay pride parades may feel compelled to reply in that manner.

Wilson wins number 12 and the Rangers are now 7 up on the Angels. And all this with Adrian Beltre on the DL.
