MLB Update:
  • Same old story for the Orioles, who can’t contain Story and get wrecked in the 9th. #Orioles #Rockies
  • Another less than notable no-decision for Noah, whose inflated ERA is another reason the Mets are going nowhere. #Tigers #Mets
  • Freese flattens a fastball from Feliz, and the Dodgers do what they usually do to the pscyhed out Ps. #Dodgers #Pirates
  • Another tough loss for Sale, who is largely unhittable but get little support in the field or at the plate. #RedSox #Astros

MLB Update:

  • Light hitting Rays defy convention and knock Plutko’s meatballs to Pluto. #Rays #Indians
  • Are the Yankees ever going to stop beating Baltimore? #Yankees #Orioles
  • Bell starts a not-so-quiet riot at PNC with more extra base blasts, and unlike Pirate teams of the past, these guys seem to be telling Colorado, “We’re not gonna take it, anymore”. #Rockies #Pirates
  • Red Sox do the right thing and grill up the Blue Jays nice and juicy, using a Weber that’s throwing off maximum heat. #RedSox #BlueJays
  • Buoyed by the Schoopster and Sano, the Twins continue their insane winning by completely bludgeoning the defenseless Angels. I guess Artie forgot about his dismal pitching staff when he joyously opened the salary vault to Trout. #Twins #Angels

MLB Update:

  • Like clockwork, Rafael hits another into Devers Devers land, and spark plug Chavis has lift off in the 13th to put the game on ice for Boston. #RedSox #BlueJays
  • Bad loss for the Reds, who had the the Brewers dead to rights before Grandal’s long shot took flight. #Reds #Brewers
  • Rockies continue to hit the stiching off of Pirate pitching. #Rockies #Pirates
  • Dodgers are a flop at the Trop, falling prey to Kevin K’s sparkling feats on cleats. #Dodgers #Rays
  • Mets win another spat with the Nats, but does beating on do nothing Doolittle really prove anything for the Gotham gnats. #Nationals #Mets
  • Finally, some adversarial acrimony is advanced against the absolute power of the Astros. #Astros #WhiteSox

MLB Update:

  • Eduardo must’ve let his guard down, not to mention telegraphing his deliveries, because Tellez seemed to know what was coming down the pike in turning this lefty on lefty match up to his distinct advantage. This was the most damage caused by a Rowdy since the days of Roddy the wrestler. #RedSox #BlueJays
  • Herky jerky Kershy throws the Rays off kilter, and the Dodgers lay some serious wood on Wood, wreak havoc on Beeks, leave Roe with nowhere to go and KO Kolarek. #Dodgers #Rays
  • Yankees trash the Orioles at Camden Yards, as hitters Sanchez and Frazier litter the field with tater peels. #Yankees #Orioles
  • Pirates take the night off, as Rockies mark the strike zone with their magic Marquez and put the Bucs to bed with a less than soothing bedtime Story. #Rockies #Pirates
  • Quintana quiets the Phils on 2 hits over 6, and 2 in the ninth puts Chicago over the top in their Wrigley Cubbie-hole. #Phillies #Cubs
  • 5 in a row for the red hot A’s, who think they can do anything with Canha cooperating. #Athletics #Indians
  • Looks like closer Jackson’s sinker didn’t have enough action tonight; geriatric Giants come to life in the bottom of the ninth. #Giants #Braves

MLB Update:

  • Things are really coming together for Boston, as they batter the skittish Red Sox, who make the mistake of straying into Fenway … wrong bat place, wrong bat time. #RedSox #BlueJays
  • In years gone by, the Nats would’ve probably taken this opportunity to rub the downtrodden Mets’ noses in it, but this year, all bets are clearly off. #Nationals #Mets
  • If you were trying to keep a scorecard for this thriller, you might as well’ve taken out the whiteout when it came to accounting for the weak White Sox. #WhiteSox #Astros
  • As they often do against the Yankees, Baltimore makes it more than a little interesting before reverting to its state of normal futility. #Yankees #Orioles
  • Psycho Oakland continues to ravage the AL Central, turning loose the home run power but losing left Anderson in the process. #Athletics #Indians

MLB Update:

  • A big thank you to ChabMom for another super shot from paradise
  • Boston salvages a precious win in the series finale, working overtime at the plate, and on the mound, with Walden and Workman (after Sale becomes the Wild Thing). It wasn’t always pretty, but it was exactly what the Red Sox needed, and now that Astros monkey is off their back. #Astros #RedSox
  • Lowly KC’s become a royal pain in the butt for the drooping Angels, who simply don’t have enough pitching. #Royals #Angels
  • Fans in Cleveland had a rockin good time this afternoon, watching Bieber close out the Orios. #Orioles #Indians
  • In apparent deference to manager Mickey’s clubhouse gospel that it’s best to be nice at all costs, the gracious Mets continue their hunger strike at the plate … and victory starved Miami is only too willing to indulge them. #Mets #Marlins
  • Pirates stomp on Padres and take 3 of 4, when Musgrove pitches masterfully in his old stomping grounds, and Moran muscles out a 3-run ding dong. And it should also be noted that if the playoffs began today THE BUCS WOULD OWN WC #2. #Pirates #Padres
  • Seattle slays the Twins, whose charmed stay atop the AL Comedy Central may well be wearing out its welcome. #Mariners #Twins

MLB Update:

  • Houston’s looking downright scary, with the addition of Brantley and his beefy batting avg. Meanwhile, Boston continues to backslide. #Astros #RedSox
  • Maybe it’s time to start paying attention, if not homage?, to the Braves, who take care fo the powerful Brewers for the second straight evening. #Braves #Brewers
  • Unexpected Pirate power surge pacifies the Padres at Petco. #PIrates #Padres
  • Pablo and Marlins cruise by the miffed Mets, who aren’t reacting well to the ocean breezes blowing in from South Beach. #Mets #Marlins
  • Oakland continues its insane choke hold over the timid Tigers. #Athletics #Tigers
  • For whatever reason, Los Doyyers seem to have no idea how to pitch to their former employee Yasiel. #Dodgers #Reds
  • Yankees thought they were sitting pretty in first place, but come the 11th inning, it was time they stepped in a Meadows muffin planted by Austin. #Rays #Yankees

MLB Update:

  • Punch and Judy manages to land a glancing blow that floors Urkel. #Marlins #Mets
  • CC’s quite loud, and the Yankees rather quietly unseat TB atop the AL East. #Rays #Yankees
  • Nats’ incompetent relief corps turn Mad Max’s underwhelming start into a complete horror show, and in the process Kris Bryant has a last three innings to remember. #Cubs #Nationals
  • Houston continues its torrid run of success, overcoming Porcello and the rest of the Red Sox fellows. #Astros #RedSox
  • Rougned and the Rangers ruthlessly rough up the Redbirds, whose pitching seems to have flown south for the remainder of the Spring. #Cardinals #Rangers
  • Reynolds is locked in against unlucky Lucchesi, and Jordan jams on the Father figures to the tune of 12 fans. #Pirates #Padres
  • Things are starting to get pretty depressing in Cin City, as Votto is batting .216 in sympathy with most the rest of the languishing lineup. #Dodgers #Reds

MLB Update:

  • Tampa’s resolved not to trade places with anyone else atop the division, and they trot out the powerful Mr. Beeks to prove it. #Rays #Marlins
  • Stros tame the pussycats from Michigan, continuing their somewhat remarkable run of blow out victories. When will they lose again? #Astros #Tigers
  • Red Sox return the favor, with an exciting extra innings conquest of a very competitive Colorado. #Rockies #RedSox
  • Yassir Yasiel, that’s stick with it and handling the big stick with skill in the clutch. Cincy need this win badly as they were teetering on a possible fade into obscurity in the NL Central. #Cubs #Reds
  • Marte and D-backs use plenty of 2 by 4’s to maul the Bucs.  So what else is new? #Diamondbacks #Pirates

MLB Update:

  • Sale serves up some very strong 17 & 7, but the resilient Rocks wait it out and pour on the power to stifle the Sox in 11. #Rockies #RedSox
  • Another under-the-radar win for the nondescript Twins. Go figure. #Angels #Twins
  • JB launces 2, and JM stops the slithering D-backs dead in their tracks. #Pirates #Diamondbacks
  • Yeah, it’s a bit early, but .219 is a pretty low return on the Phillies’ investment for high priced Bryce. #Brewers #Phillies
  • Quite a show put on by Luplow supports Carlos Carrasco. #Indians #WhiteSox

MLB Update:

  • Orioles pleased to see a Means to and end on the mound with John mowing down the opposition, and are also gratified knowing Davis is finally showing his mean streak at the plate. #Angels #Orioles
  • Debilitated Rangers slowed down when Springer breaks loose for the game of his life. #Rangers #Astros
  • Perhaps in sympathy to hockey’s Brett Burns, Blackmon and his black beard continue to terrorize the meek Padres. #Padres #Rockies
  • Bell rings the register at Busch for a Pirate plethora of total bases. #Pirates #Cardinals
  • Boston looks pretty in pink as it smothers the M’s on Mothers Day. #Mariners #RedSox

MLB Update:

  • Bosox continue to make May a month to remember, dismembering a helpless King Felix without a second thought in a glorious third inning. Nice! #Mariners #RedSox
  • Natties take apart the dejected Dodgers with a powerful slam by Parra. #Dodgers #Nationals
  • NYY’s injuries may finally be coming home to roost, as its run production goes away at Tampa Bay. #Yankees #Rays
  • It’s no lie … Lyles is the real deal and the Bucs are tickled pink about winning another tight one against their arch nemesis. Raise it! #Pirates #Cardinals

MLB Update:

  • Boston bashes Seattle senseless, and gets sweet payback for some early season misery. And yes, we are now over .500, which means things are right in the world… or at least in New England. #Mariners #RedSox
  • Nice job by the Bucs, who bounce back in St. Louis with a hard fought, one-run victory; Williams doesn’t get the win, but continues his run of high quality starts. #Pirates #Cardinals. #Pirates #Cardinals
  • Is San Diego’s position near the top of the NL West a blip on the radar screen? Colorado looks more than ready to put the Padres back in purgatory. #Padres #Rockies
  • The team with the homers (and Homer) was not the much publicized pinstripe boys from Philadelphia, but rather the much maligned Royal disappointments from KC. Harper is barely hitting his weight and Cutch is looking like his best days are definitely behind him. #Phillies #Royals
  • Nothing’s really changed in the AL West, as Houston continues to make mincemeat out of its competition. #Rangers #Astros
  • Brewers slap Chicago’s Northsiders hard on both cheeks, combining some fearsome hitting with assorted junk from Gio. #Brewers #Cubs

MLB Update:

  • Go ahead boom boom Mancini, and just try, just try to jack one out against Jackie. #RedSox #Orioles
  • Seattle kick the Yankees in the teeth with a very tricky, sticky performance by Kikuchi. #Mariners #Yankees
  • Another stunning collapse by the Bucs’ bullpen, and this one really stings. Hunter Pence rears his spasmodic head once more … this time in Ranger red … and Pittsburgh is left to weep without a sweep. #Rangers #Pirates
  • Margot goes high to deny and Renfroe goes deep as Pads take the rubber game against the Mets. #Mets #Padres

MLB Update:

  • Red Sox get fat and happy on Oriole pitching, which must’ve looked as delicious as some of that precious Boog Powell barbecue. Yum! #RedSox #Orioles
  • Scrappy Pirates stitch together a narrow victory over the Rangers, with more relievers than you can count on one hand and some of their main guns from last year’s 83 win squad. If Marte and Polanco can heat up, there’s every reason to believe they can do even better in 2019. #Rangers #Pirates
  • D-backs continue to see their record mount a notable retreat with another depressing beating in St. Pete. #Diamondbacks #Rays
  • THE YANKEES WIN, THE YANKEES WIN … AFTER A CLUTCH HIT BY LEMAHIEU AND A GREAT SLIDE BY MAYBIN. #Yankees #Mariners
