Alex Cobb was one out away from a no-hitter. Ended up with a complete game but not a shutout.
Damn, that sucks.
I'm looking back some more and, with all the players they put on waivers, the Angels traded four top 10 prospects (and some top 100s) for CJ Cron.
Hey, Cron had two great seasons playing in Colorado, which had nothing to do with his success whatsoever, so just ignore the Colorado part and look at those great stats.
Harrison Bader claimed off waivers by the Reds.
Can't say I'm surprised, with all those new guys coming up.
Cleveland claims Lucas Giolito, Matt Moore and Reynaldo Lopez.
Cincinnati claims Hunter Renfroe.
Mariners claim Dominic Leone.
Randal Grichuk clears waivers.
Angels save about $5.7 million.
Granted it's from the opposite side of the table but...
Ronald Acuña has made history as the first player to hit 30 home runs and stolen 60 bases in a single season!
MLB has informed the players' union that no alterations will be made to the pitch clock rules for the postseason.
Imagine the World Series being decided by a pitch clock violation.
They might as well just give him the MVP now. He's had an amazing season.
Crossing my fingers right now that the Mariners come through with a surprise pennant. Wish they could be as hot as they were this August all the time but c'est la vie
Yeah, the mere thought of that is super extra gross.
Now is the time to get hot though. Mariners do have a tough road to the division, but I'm rooting for them.
I think I know why they call Jasson Dominguez "the Martian". It's those weird alien eyes. He kind of looks like Gowron.
The giants keep playing with a historically bad offense. They really do not deserve the playoffs.
Stranger things have happened.
The Hitless Wonders
Swept by the fucking A’s.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. We’ve hit absolute rock bottom. What a disgrace.
I said we should trade Ohtani when we had the chance. Now we’re super-fucked.
Julio Urías was arrested and charged for felony domestic violence, his second such arrest in four years. Allegedly the incident took place at the LAFC game last night, which makes you wonder how much has been happening behind closed doors if he’s been caught twice now in public.
Damn, I didn't know about the first one.
I use to like him as a pitcher but fuck that guy.
The first incident was in a supermarket parking lot back in 2019, he shoved a woman to the ground, something like that. He served a 20-game suspension, went to counseling and the Dodgers were all "We're sure Julio has learned from his mistakes and is committed to being a better person."
Obviously that looks much worse in hindsight. Now we'll see if the Dodgers learned anything from the Trevor Bauer situation.
Separate names with a comma.
