  • Kent State, maybe (Arizona State, Auburn, Wisconsin).Agree...and you beat me to it. Though it is debatable. UC and ASU are probably on par, OSU/Iowa are close to par versus Auburn/Wisconsin. Perhaps the difference is that we get to play Kent while…
  • Homer Bailey won his third straight start, giving up only 1 earned run total in the 3 starts. Bailey is now 7-6 with the struggling Royals.  I thought about picking him up for my combined league fantasy team, but I could not make that leap of faith.
  • Streak stops at 6 as the brewers win 6-5. Second time Castillo was given an early lead at Milwaukee but could not hold it.  Suarez did something good that I had not seen out of him this year. Down two in the 6th ( I think) with runners on second an…
  • The possible move would be to take UConn and UMass both for FB only.  Then you would have two 7 teams divisions, with BG likely moving to the West for football and there would be no need for protected rivalries. UConn moving to the Big East brings G…
  • Trends come and go in baseball and I have been around long enough to see lots of changes.  A team of 10 scientists recently studied the baseballs being used in the majors and this year in AAA.  Home runs are at an all time record high.  They said th…
  • We have gone 16-8 the last 3 seasons in the MAC, so the staff should get some credit.
  • This is so much fun!! All 5 starters pitched strong games.  Lets see if they can do that again. Sacrifice bunts should be down, they were overused in the past.  But they still should  have a place.  Situational hitting should as well.  I spend half …
  • I can't take credit for this, heard it on talk radio today.  Suggested new nickname would be the       X-Rays.

  • So far the 5 starters have been healthy all year, which is unusual.  If that continues, I wonder whose spot Wood might take.  Most of the time, these situations sort themselves out because of injuries or poor performance, but so far that has not hap…
  • Down 1 in the 9th with a runner on 2nd and no out, David Bell went against the bunt, playing for two runs instead of one. It worked. lol   So you pick one inning out of one game and you use that as a justification for your strategies.  How about th…
  • I will be there tomorrow as the Reds go for a sweep.
  • INTERESTING STUDY, but you left out any hypothesis or conclusions which might be drawn from this.  One guess might be that the NL Central is more tightly bunched because this year no team in the division is in a complete rebuild phase, thus there ar…
  • The old Goggin was 2200.  I thought the new was 3600. Before J-term and before our performance fell off, I think we were averaging right around capacity.
  • In 5 games since being called up from AAA Round Rock, the Astros’ Yordan Alvarez is batting .381 with 4 homers, 8 RBI’s, and a 1.471 OPS. Springer and Correa are out though.

  • In my lifetime I would estimate I have attended 7-800 mlb games.  In that time I have seen a straight steal of home once. I had a good view as I had moved down into about the 10th row between home and third and Paul Molitor stole home against the In…

  • Reds put Wandy Peralta on IL, recall Phillip Ervin, and he is in tonigth's starting lineup.
  • Angels designate Cody Allen for assignment.
  • I coached both males and females and in girls sports celebrating with your teammates is very acceptable and  in general is not viewed as demeaning the other team.  Watch any college or high school volleyball game.  HOWEVER, this situation was a bad …
  • Isn’t Durant’s contract guaranteed? How are they going to go about avoiding paying him? How does that work?  People have been saying all year that Durant is leaving at the end of the year.  So does he have a guaranteed contract covering next year  b…
  • I was talking with another Miami hockey fan on Sunday and our discussion was do you want Kuraly to win more than you want Boston to lose.  We both are pulling for the Blues. Everything else being equal, I root for the team with the Miamian. I cert…

  • Jalen Walker showed a lot of potential last season.
  • In a 14 inning game vs the Brewers last night, Milwaukee scored 3 in the 14th to win 6-3.  Houston pitchers struck out 24 batters.  Justin Verlander struck out 15 in his 7 innings.  The mlb record is 26 for an extra inning game, done 3 times.

  • Situational hitting might be like in the 2nd inning today Naquin lead off with a double, Ramirez grounded out to second, sending Naquin to 3rd, and with the infield back, the next hitter grounded out and the run scored.  I remember a game this year …
  • We have had the sacrifice bunting arguement on here for years.  Originally, I complained about the stupidity of sacrifice bunting with your pitcher when there was one out and you defended it and argued for it.  So some new bunting studies came out a…
  • First time ever Indians pitcher gave up back to back homers in a home game.  Senzel and Votto!!   the rookie Plesac, however, seems unperturbed and has retired 12 straight since the homers.
  • I turned it off after 3-0 as it was non competitive.  In any other sport, after a certain point in a noncompetitive game, you clear your bench but let the subs keep playing hard and trying to score.  I don't know substitution rules in soccer.  Do yo…
  • I also think situational hitting or the ability to manufacture a run when you need it seems to be missing.  The Indians offense sucks but they are often able to move runners around and get a run when they really need it, thus the better record.
  • ¡Oscar Mercado! ¡Viva Colombia! STO's commercials over the weekend promoting the very prestigious Ohio Cup had me so JACKED UP. I don't care if they don't make the playoffs. As long as they retain the Cup.Opportunity to clinch with a win today, as…
