MLB Update:

  • Gott’s relief work hits the spot, while Strop’s appearance doesn’t stop anything. Giants stay on a roll, while Cubs continue to yo yo. #Giants #Cubs
  • Twins merrily imbibe plenty of delicious cc’s of CC, en route to a handful of homers that take down the bombers. #Yankees #Twins
  • JD and friends wear out the Rays, with balls echoing through a largely empty warehouse, and prompting Tampa Bay to raise (quite lamely) the white flag, by throwing a position player in the ninth (down by only five). No, this does not look like a playoff team. #RedSox #Rays
  • With Hader away, the Red Legs press the issue and cause quite a mess in Old Milwaukee against Jeffress. #Reds #Brewers
  • Another brutal bad beat at the hands of the Cardinal sinners. What else could the Pirates possibly expect? #Pirates #Cardinals

MLB Update:

  • Blackmon ends CO offensive blackout with a power surge from the plate, as the Rock’ em Sock’ em Rockies finally sock it to the Yankees. #Rockies #Yankees
  • Boston’s Cashner continues to crash and burn, while Baltimore’s Asher dusts off the Red Sox with surprising ease. The result is a very bad series loss for the defending World Champions. #RedSox #Orioles
  • Redbirds peck apart the Reds with a monster game from starter Munoz. #Cardinals #Reds
  • More misery for the Mets, who weaken yet again in the late innings; as for the Giants, they come back from the brink of extinction to level their record and ready for … a playoff run. #Mets #Giants
  • Red P’s wreck hospitality of yellow P’s with huge homer in extras by Hoskins. #Phillies #Pirates
  • To their credit, the Angels have not given up, and remain a long shot playoff pretender … going to three games over with a scorching of Seattle. #Angels #Mariners

MLB Update:

  • Give these A’s an A for resilience; they’re not going away, and look like they’ll getting a wild card invitation in the mail, come October. As for the Twins, life is getting a bit more complicated. #Athletics #Twins
  • Braves still can’t shake those annoying gNats; time for a self-help guide. #Nationals #Braves
  • Pirates capture 2nd game of latest Keystone conflict, making it look too easy with Musgrove’s 2-hit mound mastery of the phlegmatic Phillies. #Phillies #Pirates
  • Bosox survive a rather poor outing to Porcello by battering Baltimore’s baby seals over the head and with reckless abandon. For Red Sox fans, this game was indeed one fine mess. #RedSox #Orioles
  • Tampa’s bats are starting to resemble toothpicks; witness, today’s pipsqueak effort at the plate, which hardly made a discernible echo at BJ’s Warehouse in St. Pete. #WhiteSox #Rays
  • It’s deja vu all over again as Chicago pulls another 6-5 victory out of their cubby hats. #Padres #Cubs
  • Colorado’s falling out of the wildcard race almost as fast as their former governor HIckenlooper is getting kicked out of the Dem primary race. #Rockies #Yankees

MLB Update:

  • Bryce guy finishes first in Pittsburgh; Phils seem to have recovered their early season form, while the Pirate pitching is apparently heading south for an extended Summer respite. #Phillies #Pirates
  • Red Sox and Price don’t get the usual warm reception at Camden Yards; instead, their No. 1 starter gets hit very hard. #RedSox #Orioles
  • Pads left stammering at the finish line after Stammen, Tatis and Media throw away the victory. #Padres #Cubs
  • Cards prove no lead is safe when you’re he ahead as a Red. #Cardinals #Reds

MLB Update:

  • Dodger offense continues to be a hit on the East Coast, but their pitchers are lately getting hit more. Phils wake up with a smart 7th inning comeback and salvage a hard earned split with the marquis team in the NL. #Dodgers #Phillies
  • Toiling in obscurity, the Royals inch almost imperceptibly out of last place … and are soiling the White Sox in the process. #WhiteSox #Royals
  • Red Sox hope the real Sale made an appearance made an appearance tonight in in a big way at Fenway. Tonight’s sharp 2-hitter was the type of fresh start Boston has been looking for for quite a while. #BlueJays #RedSox
  • Nats bats continue to crackle as hard charging Washington lays waste to the Braves. #Nationals #Braves

MLB Update, Recap and Perspectives, Wednesday, 7-17-19:

  • Could it be that things are looking really rosy for Rosario and the swaggering Mets, who bust the Twins in the shins with a ton of hits and some surprisingly stiff stuff off the mound from Vargas. #Mets #Twins
  • This year’s turning into quite a bod of work for both E-Rod and Devers, whose exploits give Boston the cushion they need to tame the Jays. #RedSox #BlueJays
  • The too talented for .500 Brewers are certainly loving life with Hader. #Braves #Brewers
  • More runs fall from the heavens for the G-men, who seem to have gone through a majorly positive attitude in the high altitude of Coors Field. #Giants #Rockies
  • Classic bad beat in STL for the Pirates, who have a win stolen under their noses when the Cardinals turn to the Goldschmidt standard. #Pirates #Cardinals

MLB Update:

  • In another edition of the Beltway battle, the Nationals get out the belt and whip the O’s raw like Tony flogging counselman Zellman in front of the sexy Russian in Season 3 of the Sopranos. #Nationals #Orioles
  • A transfusion of new blood, including the new Yastrzemski, is giving the previously moribund G-men an very invigorating boost. #Giants #Rockies
  • Just when you think they’re ready to fade into oblivion, the Bucs perk up and stop the bleeding. Another fine outing for Liriano in his second stint with the Black ‘N Gold. #Pirates #Cardinals
  • After an extended slumber, Harper finally looks sharper in Phillies’ wild ride victory over traveling Dodger Blues. #Dodgers #Phillies
  • Blue Jays bash new guy Cashner and give the inconsistent Red Sox a serious case of the Mondays… on Tuesday. #BlueJays #RedSox

MLB Update, Recap and Perspectives, Monday, 7-15-19:

  • Chappy’s choo choo made the mistake of venturing into the d’Arnaud danger zone, with some very serious consequences for the shocked and appalled Bombers. #Rays #Yankees
  • So much for the Cubs’ resurgence; Cincy reminds everyone that they are no longer to be trifled with (at least for 1 game of the 3-game set). Nice job, Reds! #Reds#Cubs
  • Houston earned a Big “L” at the Big A today, with alarmingly spotty pitching that will not serve them well in October (if they do get that far). #Astros #Angels
  • As usual, the Pirates save their worst for their good friends the Cardinals, stumbling through a completely miserable, error prone shutout in St. Louis. Absolutely pathetic! #Pirates #Cardinals
  • Brewers continue to slide back to the pack, while Freeman and the Braves are look ready to clinch their division by mid August. #Braves #Brewers
  • Boston’s big boppers bounce back, as they usually do, against the batting practice junk offered up by the Jays. #BlueJays #RedSox

MLB Update:

  • Lester can’t even throw to first base … how the bleep did he drive in all those runs? One person who is not all smiles is definitely his Pirate counterpart Jordan Lyles. Oy vey iz mir….#Pirates #Cubs
  • Streaking Nats have gone 17-4 virtually unnoticed, while the team everyone was talking about is dropping in the standings like a lead balloon. Yes, it seems like panic time in Philadelphia. A little buyer’s remorse for Bryce and the high horse he rode into town on? #Nationals #Phillies
  • Tired of taking all that Hub and spoke abuse, the Doyyers finally get their all-terrain, road warrior vehicle revved up and hit Chris Sale well beyond the pale. Ouch! Boston fans could feel those homers all the way back in LA. #Dodgers #RedSox
  • In yet another edition of baseball’s Stupor Bowl matchup, the ridiculous Royals take care of the tediously terrible Tigers. #Tigers #Royals
  • Mets use their high priced Cano to reel in the Marlins. #Mets #Marlins
  • Stevie “the wonderful” Wilkerson is doing his best to change the negative attitude in Baltimore with a big hit that sinks the Rays … just ahead of deportation day….#Rays #Orioles

MLB Update, Recap and Perspectives, Friday, 7-12-19:

  • Dodgers continue to prove that despite their gaudy record they are nothing more than serious Fenway flops, with their peerless leader, Mister Roberts, spending most of the game cowering out of sight in a corner of the dugout; rumor has it that despite his time in Boston as a player, he’s really afraid of Wally The Green Monster. #Dodgers #RedSox
  • Giants make more mischief for Milwaukee as Posey poses as a slugger. #Giants #Brewers
  • In an absolutely scintillating victory, a bunch of likely comatose fans in St. Louie watch some D-backs and Cardinals tread water (who would’ve thought birds and snakes would have such skills). #Diamondback #Cardinals
  • Led by their big stick, the former Mariner, Admiral Nelson, the Twins continue to insist that they be taken seriously, but as they ambush the Indians by the banks of Lake Erie, is anybody out there really listening? #Twins #Indians
  • Very pleasing win for the C’s over the P’s, as the Cubbies look to turn over a new leaf in the friendly confines. Tough loss for the Pirates, who are desperately trying to get some traction for purposes of sticking their heads out above sea level. #Pirates #Cubs
  • The USS Strasburg steams into Filthydelphia and leaves the flounder Phils more than a little queasy. #Nationals #Phillies
  • Hope definitely doesn’t spring eternal in Baltimore, as the light hitting Rays bat around (and then some) in a totally obnoxious 7-run first … having more than a little fun against the ever incompetent Bundy. Time to send this whole team down to AA for some serious rehap. #Rays #Orioles
  • Yankees exert stern control over the frail Jays with their newly discovered right wing German dictator Domingo. #BlueJays #Yankees

MLB Update:

  • The mindlessly mediocre Cubs listlessly drop another game to their underappreciated, crosstown brethren Chisox. This team is living on borrowed time in first place in the NL Central, and may well not finish the year as the best team in Chicago; the White Sox are better than people think. #Cubs #WhiteSox
  • A sporting Morton keeps the Rays within shouting distance of the pace setting Yankees. #Yankees #Rays
  • The Bryan Reynolds story continues to grow in Pittsburgh, as the rookie obtained as part of the McCutcheon trade had one of the biggest hits of his short career — a 3-run job that pushes the Pirates over the bumbling Brewers. The Bucs are believing they can make a serious run in the 2nd half, and given the lack of a bona fide favorite in this division, this confidence is indeed well founded. #Brewers #Pirates
  • Price has no problem de-fanging Detroit’s felines, enabling Boston to merrily coast into the AS break. #RedSox #Tigers
  • Wildly entertaining game in Houston, where Trout hit two dingers, but the resilient Astros walk off with the win thanks to Springer. #Angels #Astros
  • Something seems to have gone slightly awry with the storybook season for Minnesota. This is not a 100 win team, and Cleveland has finally woken up. Time will tell, but there’s good reason to believe wins will continue to get tougher for the Twins in the 2nd half. #Rangers #Twins
  • Padres do what Padres do and give the Dodgers a real hard time … despite the obnoxiously good record for the NL West leaders. Way to go, feisty Fathers! #Padres #Dodgers

MLB Update:

  • It’s a rude awakening for the Brewers when they have to say hello to the Pirates’ Newman. #Pirates #Brewers
  • Needless to say it looks like the Mets have had their fill of abuse from the Phils. #Phillies #Mets
  • Tampa answers back against the Evil Empire with the dangerous d’Arnaud. #Yankees #Rays
  • Boston continues its wise practice on fattening up on the low hanging, juicy fruit at Comerica Park. #RedSox #Tigers
  • Heretofore worthless Orioles continue to defy convention by cashing in with Cashner. #Orioles #BlueJays

MLB Update:

  • Angels clear .500 the hard way with a one-run win over Verlander and the division leading Stros. Justin’s just not been as shut down this year, giving up homers with alarming regularity. #Angels #Astros
  • Phils couldn’t be more thrilled when Jay Bruce exacted retribution with the game winner. #Phillies #Mets
  • No way that the act of stumbling Stanek will stand-up to what may well be the best lineup in the majors. No way. #Yankees #Rays
  • Is Chris Davis actually threatening to bust out of the unbreakable slump? A little hitting goes a long way today, with Dylan’s pitching doing the rest for the O’s. #Orioles #BlueJays
  • Cain able to finally deliver victory for the Brewers, who do the unthinkable by letting the Guerra bros blow a 5-run lead in the bottom of the ninth. When oh when will the Pirates be able to do away with the Brew Crew bugaboo? #Brewers #Pirates
  • Hopeless Royals do something quite irrational and come through in extras to whip the Nationals. #Royals #Nationals
  • Finally some relief for the Red Sox, as Heath takes Boston across the finish line in support of another excellent start from E-rod and some major league slugging by Mookie. #RedSox #Tigers

MLB Update:

  • Closer Kimbrel throws gasoline on an 11th hour Pirate bonfire with a walk and hanging a fat one to Kang, setting up the game winning sacrifice to diligent Dickerson … and suddenly Epstein’s not looking like such an Einstein after all. #Pirates #Cubs
  • Good lord! Maybe skinny Sale needs to gain some weight on his fastball, not to mention his waistline. #RedSox #BlueJays
  • Gotta wonder why anybody ever pitches to Abreu, who is having another monster season for a quite mediocre team. #Tigers #WhiteSox
  • Somebody must’ve spiked the G-men’s prune juice because as of late, they’ve been moving the ball quite impressively from the plate, as well as threatening to move up in the standings. #Giants #Padres
