MLB Update:

  • Cards certainly getting a kick out of the superb work done off of the mound by Miles Mik. #Phillies #Cardinals
  • This year will one hell of a painful swan song for Bruce Bochy … years of failing to develop a serviceable staff have sure come home to roost. #Giants #Reds
  • Desert snakes leave the den and their venomous striking power at the plate deserts them. #Diamondbacks #Rays
  • In a surprising turn of events, Boston’s batters didn’t have the means to push their runners around the bases against Baltimore’s Means. And to make matters worse, starter Smith gets Villarfied by Villar. #RedSox #Orioles.

MLB Update:

  • Maybe, just maybe, this Sunday should have been a day of rest for jittery Jansen; as it were, today’s uprising by the no longer passive Padres was a godsend for San Diegans. #Dodgers #Padres
  • Dominance by Domingo leads to another win for the scrappy, patchwork line up of the Yanks. #Twins #Yankees
  • At Miller Park, cheaper than cheap Mets fall deeper into sub-.500 debt. #Mets #Brewers
  • Not exactly uncommon valor, but Braves aren’t too proud to get fat and happy over the messed up Marlins. #Braves #Marlins
  • Sea-change for SEA, when Mariner Swanson helps his club reverse course with a shutout win over the Tribe. #Mariners #Indians
  • DET was clearly determined not to suffer the indignity of a series loss to lowly KC, courtesy of Dixon. #Royals #Tigers
  • Super Marte delivers in the clutch for a Pirate team that refuses to knuckle under to .500. #Pirates #Athletics
  • Red Sox on the rampage, while White Sox wave the white flag. #RedSox #WhiteSox

MLB Update:

  • It’s an embarrassment of riches in Pittsburgh, as newbies Newman and Reynolds are experiencing no problems seeing their pitches. #Pirates #Athletics
  • Boston continues to have a massive May, becoming the bane of Banuelos’ existence in a titanic third inning. #RedSox #WhiteSox
  • It was Saturday, not Friday, but Bundy was frying Rays with some serious gas. #Rays #Orioles
  • Redbirds lose another one in apparent sympathy with the Blues, and their days in 1st are definitely numbered. #Cardinals #Cubs

MLB Update:

  • Sale seems to regain his old Cy Young form, with a virtuoso performance in his old digs; at the plate, Devers and Chavis come up big. #RedSox #WhiteSox
  • At this point it would probably be a good idea if the entire Orioles team was designated for assignment at AA (not AAA). #Rays #Orioles
  • Snippy A’s take out their aggression on the regressing Pirates. #Athletics #Pirates
  • Janitor jocks flush the Rocks at Coors. AZ’s robust hitting continues to be a very pleasant surprise. #Diamondbacks #Rockies
  • Two bad teams, but one helluva game; indeed, no lead is safe when your Cincy. #Giants #Reds

MLB Update:

  • This was like a gangland machine gun massacre on the South End of C-town as Nicky Delmonico got a-hold of a fat one and bashed it to smithereens. Not an acceptable result for the Red Sox, who’ve got to do something about their closer situation. #RedSox #WhiteSox
  • Rays should be ashamed of themselves, having to rally for a split against the pitty pat Royals. #Rays #Royals
  • Could it be that the Fathers have more staying power than originally assumed? We shall certainly see… #Padres #Braves
  • Natties get even with the USS Stephen. #Cardinals #Nationals
  • Noah apparently knows hitting, as well as pitching. #Reds #Mets

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

MLB Update:

  • Boston lays waste to the lately lame A’s. Chavis continues to provide a much needed spark at his home park. #Athletes #RedSox
  • Stop the presses … another come-from-behind road win for the amazed Pirates. 13 runs in 2 games/ get outta here…#Pirates #Rangers
  • Arenado comes on like a tornado and Colorado salvages a game in Sudsville. #Rockies #Brewers
  • If the Cardinals are this good now, imagine what they’ll be like when Carpenter starts to look sharper. #Cardinals #Nationals
  • Lost and forlorn Orioles, look around and realize they can rely on their Villar of strength. #Orioles #WhiteSox
  • Dry series in the desert for the disabled Yankees, who limp out of Phoenix. #Yankees #Diamondbacks
  • Adalberto comes to the aid of the scuffling Royals. #Rays #Royals

MLB Update:

  • Things lately have been pretty sweet for the host Twinkie pitchers. #Twins #Astros
  • Red Sox hope their losing ways can continue to be changed by newcomer Chavis. #Athletics #RedSox
  • Rocky resistance is nowhere to be found when Zach takes the mound. #Rockies #Brewers
  • Almost imperceptibly, the Cardinals are assuming a leadership position in the National League. #Cardinals #Nationals
  • Reds leave Citi Field quite happy, with a Winker and a smile. #Reds #Mets

Check out ChabDog’s interview of Bucky Dent … Monday, April 29 at 10 am on Blog Talk Radio …

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/chabdogradio/2019/04/29/chabdog-sports-talk-monday-april-29-10-11-am-pst-the-bucky-dent-interview

Tune in next Monday at 10 am pst/1 pm eastern, April 29 for the Bucky Dent interview, as ChabDog comes to grips with some demons from days gone by. I ran home from Herbert Hoover Junior High, wolfed down a can of Chef Boyardee Beef Ravioli, and watched in horror as every heart in upper New England was broken to pieces with that 1-strike fly off of Mike Torrez, which barely cleared the Monster in left. We’re lucky to have you join us Bucky, even if the memories for some of us are … very unsettling.

  • COL uses its big bats to colonize Atlanta’s indians. #Rockets #Braves

  • Industrious Twins get out their Dewalts and drill Balt. #Twins #Orioles
  • Pirates go down hard … what else is new? … in Tinsel Town

MLB Update:
  • Cleveland puts Houston to bed with two hours of Bauer power, and just a little bit of hitting. #Indians #Astros
  • Second wind for the Mariners? #Mariners #Rangers
  • Masahiro was a hero until the 5th, when he got rocked by, among others, David Fletcher? Yes, the Red Sox have been disappointing, but let’s face it, the Yankees are not scaring anyone .. definitely not the below average Angels. #Yankees #Angels
  • Porcello finally gets some movement, and the Sawx are seeing some movement in the standings (yes, out of last). #Tigers #RedSox
  • Braves are now treading water, just barely, after getting flummoxed by some unexpectedly hard to stomach gas from the Reds. #Braves #Reds
  • So much for the great start, Pirates. We haven’t seen offensive ineptitude like this since the Summer belly flop after the raw deal from Jerry Meals in the Braves game. God, when our hitting goes South, it really goes into the lower hemisphere. Oy veys mear! #Diamondbacks #Pirates

MLB Update:

  • Boston litters Fenway with bombs from its hitters, instead of extending the welcome mat to Detroit’s kitty cats. #Tigers #RedSox
  • Somehow, KC holds Tampa Bay at bay. #Royals #Rays
  • For Anaheim fans, too bad Buttrey couldn’t hold LeMahiue, as the Yanks slip through the Angels’ fingers. #Yankees #Angels
  • Apparently, the powerful Dodgers don’t have much staying power. #Dodgers #Cubs
  • Unfortunately for Pirate fans, the Marte that starred tonight was wearing an AZ Janitors uni. #Diamondbacks #Pirates

MLB Update:

  • Braves can only rave watching “Pedro” Puig’s Cerrano-like swat. #Braves #Reds
  • Maybe Boston needs to renegotiate the thin man’s big fat contract…#Tigers #RedSox
  • Too bad Rodney wasn’t around to move Mariner Swanson off the mound. #Mariners #Padres
  • Pirates continue to lay down on their backs (with feet in the air) against D-backs. #PIrates #Diamondbacks
  • Boy those A’s can certainly score with the best of them … but what’s with the pitching? #Athletics #Rangers

MLB Update:

  • Cards take it to the Brew Crew, unleashing Dexter the Destroyer. #Cardinals #Brewers
  • Nats can’t seem to live with the fact that they got pinned to the mat by Matz. #Phillies #Mets
  • Baltimore’s miracle worker pitching staff turns the sleeping Chisox into the Go Deep Sox. #WhiteSox #Orioles
  • It was looking like another eye-opening win for the Pirates, who sailed into the 7th inning with a lead on strength of some great starting work from Joe Musgrove. But that mirage of victory disappears in spectacular fashion, 11 runs later, with a Crick in the neck, combined with a a bicep/tricep blowout for Burdi. #Diamondbacks #PIrates

MLB Update:

  • Bellinger has the ultimate bellwether game as Dodgers overcome Brewers in a confrontation between the best of the NL. #Dodgers #Brewers
  • Cards starting to realize serious value from the Goldy acquisition. #Cardinals #Mets
  • Boston thanks TB for keeping first place warm while it works out the kinks by getting out the Swiffer and cleaning house at the Trop. #RedSox #Rays
  • Just when you thought he had fallen off the map, there was a Posey sighting today in Pittsburgh, where the catcher made the Pirates pay for a rare pitching mistake. #Giants #Pirates
  • Baltimore’s been so bad for so long that their weary players can’t even get a motel on Baltic Avenue. #Twins #Orioles

MLB Update:

  • Could it be that Red Sox magic is starting to return to the diamond. Benintendi’s swings are now having their intended result, and his team has commenced winning series. #RedSox #Rays
  • Massive Marlin uprising against Max defies logic. #Nationals #Marlins
  • Christian wins more converts by covering all the bases twice the day before Easter. #Dodgers #Brewers
  • Now even the rain gods are smiling on the Pirates. #Giants #Pirates
  • Cardinals didn’t let the Mets do any flexing, as punishment for starting Flexen. #Mets #Cardinals
  • The fact that the Royal offense went into the tank today against Tanaka is definitely not front page news. What is more newsworthy is the hanging judge going on sequester/DL with a very bad tweak of the oblique. #Royals #Yankees
