MLB Update:

  • A pretty good game goes to the home team, as Betances simply gave the White Sox hitters too many chances, dancing around the plate with his cute, but wildly in effective hard curve, only to come face to face with Chicago’s best hitter, Jose Abreu (with the bases loaded … not where you want to be Dellin). #WhiteSox #Yankees
  • Thousands watch in Fenway fascination as Twins get fed to Red Sox Chris and Christian. #RedSox #Twins
  • After appearing to finally be escaping from the sick ward, miserable Mets are forced to watch as Ichiro and Miami take pleasure rubbing salt in their wounds. #Marlins #Mets
  • Freese freezes up on a 10th inning ground, and that’s all she wrote for the poor Pirates. Ughly! #Pirates #Rays
  • Maxie sure had his good stuff tonight, stifling the Cubbies on 2 hits, while Arrieta and his battery mate got violated by Trea Turner. #Cubs #Nationals

MLB Update:

  • Does this result mean the Indians are really mighty, or does it just show Ranger resilience is nothing more than flighty? #Indians #Rangers
  • NY dresses down the Pale Hose in C-town when it opts to go full Monty from the mound, and then rolls their victims with toxic Aroldis. #Yankees #WhiteSox
  • Twins plead no contest in proceedings at Fenway, while Mitch is able, once again, to find his favorite pitch. #RedSox #Twins
  • Cubs scrub away their losing taint by throwing the kitchen sink at the floundering Nationals. #Nationals #Cubs
  • Potent D-back attack has no problem nicking up Nick … real quick … while Greinke supplies the perfect muffler for the fouled up Philly bats. #Diamondbacks #Phillies

Starter No. 4 — Larry Sherry (53 wins, 3.67 ERA)

2nd Base — Rod Carew (well, raising your kids Jewish sort of qualifies you for this list) (Hall of Fame, too many allstar appearances to count, 350+ stolen bases, .328 lifetime average and 3000 plus hits)
Shortstop — Walt Weiss
Third Base — Sid Gordon (2 time all star, 200 + homers, 1400 + hits, .283 career avg)

Benchwarmer/pitch hitters — Moe Berg (went to Princeton and spoke a bunch of languages), Gabe Kapler, Ian Kinsler, Ryan Lavarnaway, Max Kepler, and apparently a few pitchers on the Twins’ current staff

  • NY continues its plunge into the soft mid-section of the AL East when it makes the mistake of turning to everyone’s favorite whipping boy, Mr. Tyler Sport Clippard. #Yankees #Angels
