Bat571If the Angels can't keep up their winning with the remaining pitching, they're vulnerable. And the A's keep losing (2-8 in their last 10). But Paxton and Elias have got to keep the M's in games, too. But Felix-Young-'Kuma in Boston is as good as it gets, especially with the Sawx pitching in some disarray also. Time to pick up some ground.14 hours 45 min ago
SABR Mattwow...saw the highlight of that...he's done for the year, no question. brutal. Both Oakland and Anaheim showing us their keister...but if we play like we played today, we don't deserve to win.14 hours 51 min ago

SABR Mattwell this is a dog of a game. Mariners playing like the bad news bears again.20 hours 39 min ago
mojicianFollowing Pax on Gameday: He can't control his curve ball, his first hit in the third was from a changeup that was both hanged and tubed, the Phillies aren't swinging at any of his off speed, and Pax's pitch count is at 59 at the end of the third. The fast ball is located at both sides of the plate and velocity is topping out at 96. This start has one run five n' dive written all over it. What's wrong with that? Puzzling Pax is still better than most teams' number two starter. We haven't seen enough of the Bartender in a while anyway.21 hours 32 min ago
SABR MattPhilly is considered by many in the game to be the dumbest organization, from top to bottom, in all of baseball. Lots of folks heavily criticize their manager for not using his brain, for picking favorites, for ruining quality starts, etc. And of course, we all know what people think of Ruben Amaro.1 day 58 min ago
moethedogWas checking out the Southern League batting leaders to get an idea of how Kivlehan rates in that league (very well, thank you) and the year that Cubbies farm hand Kris Bryant is having jumps out at you. He's the #2 pick in the draft from '13. Between AA and AAA this year (40% of his PA's at AAA) he's .333-.441-.678 with 34 2B's and 40 HR's. He does K in 27% of his PA's but he walks in 14% of them, too. One scouting report gives his extrodinary power with the most explosive rotation sine Stanton. Plays 3B with a plus arm and quick reactions, so you can add him to Addison Russel + Javier Baez and the Cubs may have a heck of an IF pretty soon.1 day 1 hour ago
moethedogMinor league report: Romero is pretty amazingly hot! In his current 12-game hitting streak he is 26-53 with 4 2B's/2 3B's/4 HR's. In his last 21 games he has had 8 3-hit games and 5 more 2 hit games. His K rate is dropping. AAA #'s for the year: .371-.405-.716.... Nice! And with Blash in AA, Kivlehan played CF last night. Don't you get the idea that the M's are really high on him? Oh, Deej whacks two more homers as Bat pointed out.1 day 1 hour ago
OBFHaving watched Chris Taylor for a while... Brad Miller is not a very good defensive SS... :( Hopefully he refinds his bat...1 day 13 hours ago
OBFHe had looked... uncomfortable... that whole inning, doing more stretches than even usual... :/ Including some weird box squaty things... hopefully just a cramp or something...1 day 13 hours ago

OBFMean while Detroit storms back from down four to tie it up... :( :( :( come on Rays!1 day 14 hours ago
OBFWhy'd they leave Burnett in so long? He did a nice job getting them into the 8th only giving up 3 runs, but then they made him pitch the eighth (or most of it ) while already over 100 pitches (ended at 125) and he gave up two more runs, which against tonight's Kuma seems like an insurmountable lead... I am not complaining... just wonderin' ;)1 day 14 hours ago

Bat571Blash with a HR, Deej with 2 HRs, Kivlehan 2-4, Lara 1-3. Brewers former #1 pick Jed Bradley lasted 3.2 IP. Again, that lineup must be fun to face....not!1 day 15 hours ago
merksJim Callis @jimcallisMLB · 6h New @MLBPipeline Perspective: Who's baseball's best corner OF prospect? I say it's Alex Jackson. http://atmlb.com/VDIGCU @Mariners Which is nice. Also DJ Peterson with 2 HR's tonight giving him a total of 28 on the year.1 day 15 hours ago
