So, not a huge surprise that the holdover batting coach would be the first to go.
Jaramillo was working his ass off, but anyone with half a brain could have seen that he wasn't long for this world when Hoyer and Epstein came to town. The team's OBP has plummeted under his watch (.332 in 2009, the year before Jaramillo was hired; .320 in 2010; .314 in 2011; .304 this season), and Starlin Castro should not be hitting .304 with a .317 OBP, Jesus Christ. He made zero progress in un-fucking Geovany Soto, too. Time for him to go, especially since he wasn't going to have his contract extended anyway.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Arod makes history! Ties Lou Gehrig on the all-time grand slam list, and 639th of his career. On a pace for nearly 30 HRs this year...if he stay healthy.

http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/news/...s_nyy&c_id=nyy

A-Rod was No. 1 on Tuesday for the fan who caught the ball, a 15-year-old Yankees devotee from Asheboro, N.C., named Randy Kearns, who was sitting in the lobby of the visitors' clubhouse with his mother and brother, waiting to give the ball to the right-handed-hitting slugger.
The family had driven five hours to see the Yankees, and Kearns caught the ball with his cap.
"This was the first time I've ever seen them," Kearns said of the Yankees. "It was worth the drive."
The Kearns family simply asked to see Rodriguez, who said he was going to give Randy a jersey, a couple of bats and some baseballs in return for the cherished home run ball. They hadn't asked for a thing.
"He just came to our security and volunteered to give the ball back," A-rod said. "That's pretty generous."

Nice

Got to see a pretty awesome game last night at AT&T Park...namely because this happened:


And just because, a shot from my seat.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I can't wait to see a Baseball game at AT&T park. I'm going to San Francisco either next year or year after and I will definitely catch one. Great pictures from the park, especially the from the seat pic. You really get the beauty of it.

I was there too. MadBum's home run was the highlight of the night for me. That and his 12 strikeout performance. He and Matt Cain are really the 2 best pitchers on the staff and probably 2 of the best pitchers in the game. He was awesome last night.

R.A. Dickey just did that tonight - against the Rays. His second career 1-hitter!

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I actually got to watch the Mets game on tv tonight. What a pitching performance. Best pitcher in baseball at the moment, I'm really enjoying it. For a team that was suppose to do nothing and go nowhere, they have been a pleasant surprise and fun to watch.

I think I wrote this about 4 hours ago. Who would have thought I went to the wrong game last night.

Matt Cain just pitched a Perfect Game with 14 strikeouts.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Damn, I went to the wrong game too! I only got to listen to it as I was at work tonight...but wow, what a game. Couldn't have happened to a more deserving pitcher. I just love that the national sports guys have to talk about a West Coast team again.

Oh, and by the way Laser Beam, nobody calls it "Telephone Park."

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Watched the game this morning. He was masterful in his effort last night. I really enjoy great pitching performances like this and we have gotten a few this year.

Also the catch that Blanco made in right center was amazing. Thankfully they had him shaded that way or that hit falls in. Also had that foul ball down the line. It was indeed foul, so no asterisk like Johann's.
