MLB Update:

  • Yanks sever the head of Mr. Red, with some severely wicked stuff from Severino, and something big that goes down (and out) from Frazier. #Yankees #Reds
  • St. Louis is becoming known as the place for roasted Rockies, not to mention toasted raviolis. #Cardinals #Rockies
  • Royal flashback to 2015 continues courtesy of a very hot Hosmer. #Royals #Tigers
  • Startling way to lose for the Bucs as Starling started the wrong way on a fly ball. #Giants #Pirates
  • Red Sox finally find their tailwind behind who else, but Sale, and a snot nosed rookie you Devers would have expected. #RedSox #Mariners
  • Braves can’t handle various shots dished out by the very sharp D-backs, including an inside-the-parker job from Ketel. #Diamondbacks #Braves
  • Intoxicating play from the D-backs, who dish out an inside-the-parker job from Ketel. #Diamondbacks #Braves
  • Oh, how the O’s were longing for a long ball like the one that left the bat of Longoria. #Rays #Orioles

  • You’d be hard pressed to find a Bader hater in St. Louis….#Cardinals #Rockies
  • Cin take it on the chin, to the tune of some domestic violence (not to mention chin music) from one disgruntled former power partner Chapman. #Reds #Yankees

MLB Update:

  • Blash certainly wasn’t blashful up at the plate, but Terry breathed a sigh of relief when his blash went foul by an eyelash. #Mets #Padres
  • Memo to Farrell — maybe it’s time for some electro-shock treatments; your boys are laying down like they’ve got comas that won’t go away, and the Yankees are coming. #Mariners #RedSox
  • If only the committees in Washington were as results oriented as KC’s ridiculously large bullpen by committee. Methinks the poor Tigers were getting cross-eyed watching Royal relievers getting shuttled around. #Royals #Tigers
  • Gausman finally has cause to rejoice as Orio’s snuff out the flickering Rays. #Orioles #Rays
  • As expected, Astros give Phillies their obligatory ass-kicking. #Phillies #Astros
  • Cubs continue to periodically and predictably stub their toes … despite the fact that tonight there was absolutely no reason to be harried playing the Harry Cary horrible Pale Hose. #WhiteSox #Cubs
  • Giants and Cain get totally brained upside the head by the combination of Gerrit Cole’s heavy fastball and Cutch’s heavyweight display of power. #Giants #PIrates

  • Pirates pillage at Coors, rocking Hoffman and associates for 13 large ones. #Pirates #Rockies

  • King Felix pays for letting down his guard against the sometimes dangerous Gardner. #Yankees #Mariners
  • Bochy must be having a real tough time recognizing who those guys are who are wearing Giants uniforms, what with another humbling loss to the bumbling Pads and the Mad Bum pitching like a relative bum. #Giants #Padres
  • Royals continue to tread water, which is exactly what you need to be doing to have chance in the AL Comedy Central. #Royals #Tigers
  • Oriole boppers show their fidelity to winner Castro by hammering Hamels into submission. #Orioles #Rangers
  • Blue Jays use Smoak,Pearcing, sunshine filled mirrors, and a golden opportunity to hit against the weak Fister in Boston’s rotation abscond with a victory and a series split with the Red Sox. #RedSox #BlueJays
  • Give the Pirates loads of credit for keeping the faith when times were tough, and now the Brewers have a confident, rabble rousing bevy of baseball busting Bucs to contend with. #Brewers #Pirates
  • Dreadful Reds’ hitting (and pitching) continues to go nowhere but on the lam, while Zona stays in the zone as its own Lamb continues to live large. #Diamondbacks #Reds
  • Trevor learns the hard way that pitchers shouldn’t admire their pitches, any more than batters shouldn’t gloat over their home runs. #Mets #Cardinals
