MLB Update:
  • Powerful Pete pounds another one and catches Judge with 2 games to spare; rookie homer record remains within reach. #Braves #Mets
  • White Sox-Tigers cancelled due to rain, and won’t be rescheduled due to extreme apathy. #WhiteSox #Tigers
  • Braun pulls out when his calf comes up tender, and Brewer drive for the division title experiences a CO fender bender. #Brewers #Rockies
  • Who knew Newman would be this good; Pirates will finish behind the Reds, but have some serious bragging rights in their season series (moving to 12-5). #Pirates #Reds
  • Cubs emerge from their funk to nearly skunk the staggering Cardinals. A case of too little too late … but playing spoiler certainly feels great. #Cubs #Cardinals

MLB Update:

  • Exhausted Indians take their eyes off the ball once again and get massacred at South Side of Chicago. #Indians #WhiteSox
  • Grand finish for Granderson and his Marlins, who gives his fans in NY something to remember in a swan song-type, 8th-inning flourish. #Marlins #Mets
  • As the Brewers will attest, Great American’s a great place to be if you’re needing wins in a divisional crown chase. #Reds #Brewers
  • With nothing to play for except, say, winning 70 games, the suddenly potent PIrates make winning look positively routine in a 9-5 win over the dispirited Cubs. And let’s give credit where credit is due to Musgrove, who has logged double digit wins for a last place team and has quite a few quality starts. #Cubs #Pirates

MLB Update:

  • No way the A’s are getting waylaid at the Big A. No way! #Athletics #Angels
  • Cubs visit PNC village and get pillaged. #Pirates #Cubs
  • Have the winds of change have finally blown the Indians off of their playoff perch? Tonight, they finally blinked and played a very sloppy game against an inferior opponent. There is scant time to repair the damage. #Indians #WhiteSox
  • Visiting Red Sox round out their uneven season with a bunch of round trippers against the dazed and confused Rangers. #RedSox #Rangers
  • Seattle flunks out in class against Professor Greinke, leaving little doubt who’s the big bully in the American League schoolyard. Houston will mostly have home field advantage throughout the playoffs, and has three ridiculously studly starters to set its sumptuous table. #Astros #Mariners
  • Ok Twins, you can finally … at long last … relax (at least for 4 games). Minnesota get fat one more time offa the fat of the land in the AL Central; if Cleveland can do it, why can’t they as well. #Twins #Tigers
  • Cards find out to their dismay that smoke and mirrors don’t always work that well in the desert. NL Central lead is cut to 1.5. #Cardinals #Diamondbacks

MLB Update:

  • Looks like Washington was right on the money giving super starter that big long-term deal. The Nats have the rotation to cause some serious damage in the playoffs, and the division winner had better take serious notice. #Phillies #Nationals
  • For Cardinal haters (and I think there are a few) this latest win streak is simply astounding. How this team continues to score 7, 8, 9 and 10 runs at a time is a bit mystifying…. and the pitching is nothing fancy, but it is holding up. Whether this can possibly continue in the playoffs .. against an excellent starting staff like the Dodgers’ or, to a lesser extent, the Braves, Nationals and/or Brewers, remains to be seen, but this team obviously believes in itself and doesn’t seem to care who they play. That right there is the clear stamp of a winner. #Cardinals #Diamondbacks
  • Steven gets savagely pinned to the Citi Field welcome Matz by the featherweight Marlins, leaving the Mets in truly dire straits. Time for another pep talk from Mr. Feel Good, Mickey. #Marlins #Mets
  • Red Sox sorry state of pitching inventory wears thin at the Warehouse, as a continuous stream of meatballs get served up at the plate to TB’s murderers row of Ji-man, Lowe and Willy. Tickle me silly, but if you’re a Boston booster this is pretty hard to digest, even if it is totally meaningless. #RedSox #Rays

MLB Update:

  • Now it’s Molina and DeJong’s turn to go long in another close encounter with Cub closer Kimbrel. #Cardinals #Cubs
  • A day after dealing the knockout blow, Rays rub extra salt in Red Sox wounds with Lowe-light homer in exras. #Rays #RedSox
  • Mets check in to Great American for a painful Colon-oscopy, as Christian let’s Lugo have it in the 8th. #Reds #Mets

MLB Update:

  • Mets tear the Reds to shreds, with some long distance driving by the picture of power Pete; we haven’t seen a swing with this much hydraulic lift since the hitch hitter Cecil Fielder. #Mets #Reds
  • Pittsburgh continues to wet the bed as its abysmal second half slide careens off a very pronounced cliff; seriously folks, isn’t it time to go in a different direction with both the manager and management? In the words of Angry Met fan, the Bucs would need to drastically improve at this point to be considered “horrible”. This is totally pathetic. #Pirates #Brewers
  • Yankees lose more ground to the Astros in the fight for best record, and also may have temporarily lost the services of terrific Torres. #BlueJays #Yankees
  • Cubs’ sporadic hitting woes come back to stub them in the toes in a major way today, as St. Louis stops them cold again, in what must be viewed as a must-win situation. Yes, they’re still in the hunt, but this does not look like a playoff team, in any way, shape or form. #Cardinals #Cubs

MLB Update:

  • Not to harp on this point too much, but you really take your life in your hands when you attempt to close with Kimbrel. Carpenter proved that once again tonight with a massively important 11th hour homer. #Cardinals #Cubs
  • Boston staves off San Fran and keeps hope alive for Eduardo, who inches closer to No. 20. #Giants #RedSox
  • Shed and the Mariners continue to take the pitiful Pirates out behind the PNC woodshed and beat their hosts senseless. #Mariners #Pirates
  • Sooner or later cream rises to the top, and that’s what happened in ATL as star youngsters Acuna and Soroka help the Braves spill the Phils and likely spoil their hopes for wild card qualification. #Phillies #Braves

MLB Update:

  • After this year’s over, Cole should start spelling his name with a K … he’s become very familiar with that letter. #Rangers #Astros
  • When it came to the 10th, Cincy didn’t wince against the contending Cubs. #Reds #Cubs
  • Cleveland’s newest red-headed stepchild, Puig, goes wild in the Indians’ latest win over the miserable Tigers. #Tigers #Indians
  • Mad Max just hasn’t had his normally disagreeable disposition on the mound lately, and that was a major problem today for the Natties, who are fighting to keep their place in the NL Wild Card race. #Nationals #Cardinals
  • Tampa continues to tamper with the Dodgers’ plans for super home field adv. throughout the playoffs … this could be a problem come October. #Rays #Dodgers

MLB Update:

  • … they’re not called the “Blight” Sox for nothing; how exactly they blew this game we’ll never know. #WhiteSox #Twins
  • Dodgers were showing it tonight … showing why they’ve got what it takes to secure yet another NL Pennant .. as well as a World Series Title… they have all the parts… just need a good central nervous system. #Rays #Dodgers
  • Darvish was living on his Special K diet in a big way, but the Cubbies were starving for their usual bushel of runs. Too bad … as they somehow fall to the going-nowhere-fast Reds. #Reds #Cubs
  • Brewers rejoice when Cain lifts his game in the face of the lame Pad Squad. #Padres #Brewers
  • Can it get any worse for the Pirates? The closer is going to lock up, and the hitting is definitely in a case of arrested development…. oy vey
  • Looks like hitting at Fenway is something that runs in the family for the Yastrzemskis … which today was unfortunate for the Red Sox. #RedSox #Giants

MLB Update:

  • Dodgers need to remind themselves that they are still playing for something … have they looked at ATL’s record recently? #Dodgers #Mets
  • Big win for the Bosox, who ride the shutdown pitching of E-rod to keep a glimmer of hope alive in the AL race. #RedSox #Phillies
  • Twins come close to casting the knockout blow with a double dip dunking of the sinking Indians. #Twins #Indians
  • Cubs do what Cubs do and club the Pirates to death like innocent baby seals. #Pirates #Cubs

MLB Update:

  • Goldy’s proved to be quite a jewel for the Redbirds, who continue to run roughshod over their competition in the NL East. It also helps that Wainwright’s fancy curve is dancing just right. #Brewers #Cardinals
  • Cubs overjoyed to capitalize on the many faults of one Steven Brault, who is tagged and battered like few others in a nightmarish stint in that house of Pittsburgh horrors that is Wrigley. #Pirates #Cubs
  • Oakland roughs up the Rangers behind the ultra athletic Khris Davis. #Athletics #Rangers

MLB Update:

  • Never-say-die Mets keep ‘a comin, with another nuking of the disappearing D-backs. Looks like this drama may well go right down to the regular season wire. #Diamondbacks #Mets
  • Don’t tell Milwaukee they’re dead and buried; Brewers still have plenty of Braun left in their lineup, and have now won 8 straight. #Brewers #Marlins
  • Cards go off more than half cocked against the defenseless Rockies, unleashing for a handful of homers and avoiding what could have been an unforgivable 4-game sweep at the hands of Colorado’s cream puffs. #Cardinals #Rockies
  • Bucs are clucking now that they’ve left San Fran with the rubber game in their pocket, as well as a possible key out of the Central Division cellar (only 3 games behind the Reds). On occasion it does appear they’ve found a treasure trove with Musgrove. #Pirates #Giants
  • Red Sox rise up and bid a fond farewell to the Blue Jays North of the Border, while taking the concept of bullpen by committee to a ridiculously sublime extreme. #RedSox #BlueJays
  • Can the A’s do the impossible and make a consistent winner of formerly hapless Homer Bailey? He’s now an impressive 13-8, and by all accounts pitching nothing short of great. #Athletics #Astros
  • Twins were hoping for a little r&r but after a rough tussle with the Natties their looking more than a bit peaked. #Nationals #Twins

MLB Update:

  • A’s continue to show they aren’t afraid of anyone, least of all the Astros. Watch out for this team in the playoffs; they’ve got just enough of everything, and that’s scary. #Athletics #Astros
  • Nationals push back against the hard hitting Twins with their big meal ticket, the USS Strasburg, who steams ahead for his 17th win. #Naitonals #Twins
  • After everything they’ve been through the resilient Mets whack the D-backs and find themselves smack dab in the middle of the playoff pack. #Mets #Diamondbacks
  • More misery for the listless Red Sox, who are really starting to look like one of those out-of-the-October money teams mailing it in in September. #RedSox #BlueJays

MLB Update:

  • In a most interesting development, the Tigers get to 100 losses and now try to argue they aren’t really as bad as the Yankees are good. #Yankees #Tigers
  • Blue Jay season is done, but the next few weeks could help this group of talented youngsters build up their confidence for next year; if they can get some pitching, this team could at least be respectable. #RedSox #BlueJays
  • A’s give the strutting Stros a taste of their own medicine. #Athletics #Astros
  • Mets eke out a win over the traveling janitors from AZ and stay regular. #Mets #Diamondbacks
  • Phils continue fight the good fight, coming up with a huge gut check victory over the high flying Braves. There’s no reason this team can’t take it down to the wire in its fight with the Cubs for the 2nd wc. #Braves #Phillies
  • Brewer playoff aspirations are cut off at the knees with most unfortunate foul bal injury suffered by superstar Yelich. Ouch!!! #Brewers

MLB Update:

  • Yankees blank the Red Sox behind the immortal James Paxton, and Boston’s playoff hopes fade into oblivion … I don’t care how many games we have left with Tampa Bay. And by the way, good riddance for Dumbrowski. #RedSox #Yankees
  • Pirates put on their rally caps in the ninth inning … how often does that happen? Maybe they can loan some of this offensive mojo to the comatose Steelers… #Pirates #Giants
  • Astros serve notice that their offense is just as potent as the Yankees’ by proceeding to set fire to Mike Fiers’ gaudy resume for 2019. This was one helluva a whupping … one that the A’s won’t soon forget, even if they happen to draw the wild card. #Athletics #Astros
  • Cubs bulk up with some man-sized run production in Man Diego, with new guy Nico leading the way. #Cubs #Padres
