Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

As much as I think Quentin was a jackass and the brawl was basically his fault, I admit I don't know why Greinke leaned into it with his shoulder when Quentin charged. That may have been a bad move...

Well, it's a broken collarbone so I would say it was a bad move.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Quentin suspended 8 games for his part in the melee. Greinke reportedly out for 8 weeks at least.

Edit: ... Yankees just turned a triple play against the O's!

Eight games that will almost certainly be whittled down to four or five after appeal.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Quentin = lack of baseball situational awareness.

Greinke = decides to take on a career .220 hitter on a team destined for the cellar of your division who outweighs you by 50 pounds. Greinke did nothing to diffuse the situation. I'm guessing his comments to Quentin were something to the effect of "thats what happens when you stand on top of the plate."

I love baseball but their inane unwritten rules are beyond stupid sometimes.

8 days vs 8 weeks. Who says nothing good ever comes out of charging the mound? Besides Robin Ventura?

Cubs put closer Fujikawa on 15 day DL

He definitely looked off Friday night. Kept moving & stretching between pitches, plus his control was way off.

And you probably think you know what this means closer-wise, but Sveum says he's not putting Marmol back in the role.

So that leaves us Camp pretty much... guess he might do alright. Maybe... the confidence is just oozing out of this post.

The article also mentions Russell as a possibility. He's a lefty and can be pretty good, though I'm not sure what other lefties that would leave in the bullpen.

They have recalled Rafael Dolis, unfortunately.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Can they do this?

To sum up: During the Dodgers/D-backs game at Chase Field a bunch of Dodger fans decided to buy some pricey suite seats behind home plate. The D-backs' owner found out and ordered them to either move, or put on D-backs gear.

Can they do that? It can't be simply because they're visible on TV; I've seen plenty of games in other ballparks in which visiting fans can clearly be seen behind home plate.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

I'm kind of surprised that no one's talking about how the Orioles went Peak Oriole last night, first giving up three runs on a center field error, then hitting into the first 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 triple play in history. I've watched the video two dozen times, and I still can't wrap my head around it:

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Braves win their 8th in a row. Gattitude > Natitude. This kid is raking early. I'm waiting until Freeman gets back to anchor the lineup. Heyward and B.J. are doing absolutely nothing. The Braves are riding Jupton and Gattis as well as strong pitching.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Happy to see the Giants back to the winning ways, but that injury to Clemenger looked really really bad. It was almost as if the spine was twisted the wrong way. Hopefully it's nothing serious, but he was down and not moving for a long time.
