Because sports should never run your life ... retorts for sports

MLB Update, Recap and Perspectives: Tuesday, 8-1 (click post for audio)

MLB Update:

  • Giants continue their recent trend of playing like grown men, tonight against the wimpy A’s and their junior jockstraps. #Athletics #Giants
  • On the day after Mundy, suddenly sensitive KC gets brutalized by Bundy. #Royals #Orioles
  • Today’s contest was exactly the type of game the Cards have been used to winning against the Brouhas … but not this year…#Cardinals #Brewers
  • Nats should’ve done a better job padding their lead before Maxie left; there’s no escaping a leaky pen. #National #Marlins
  • Sox keep motoring behind Brother Christian, who enables Kimbrel to trade a blown save for a win. #RedSox #Indians
  • HIcks keeps Tiger hearts ticking with a huge 3-run bomb that puts away the Bombers. #Detroit #Yanks
  • Reds may not impress the rest of the league, but they sure impress the easily intimidated Pirates, who go down with a Winker and a Hamilton smile. #PIrates #Reds

MLB Update:

  • A’s deal Gray but still win round 1 of the Battle by the Bay. #Giants #Athletics

  • Finally, a thumbs up for Fister, and Devers looks like a real achiever. #Indians #RedSox
  • Gentry plays sentry at Orioles’ castle, standing guard against troublesome Royals. #Orioles #Royals

US Open Series Update: Atlanta Open

US Open Series Update:

  • The long and the short of it is that Isner served his way to another title (Atlanta Open) … but the rest of his game still has a ton of holes. Up until now, that has always caught up with him at Majors, and this year should be no difference. But let’s also admit that his serving package is the most devastating weapon of its kind that we’ve ever seen. At 6 foot 10, the angles he gets are simply unfair.

MLB Update:

  • Cutch shifts the stick into drive and sends three out of the park at Petco. #Pirates #Padres
  • It’s not enough to create hysteria or even Lynnsanity at Busch, but St. Louis is certainly please by this strong effort from 3rd starter Lance. #Diamondbacks #Cardinals
  • Rare July Chisox home win means the team will, for now, put off changing the name of their home park to Guaranteed Loss Field. #WhiteSox #Indians
  • If Lackey continues to pick up the slack like this, the Cubs will be sitting pretty in the NL Central. #Cubs #Brewers
  • It does not appear that Fedde was ready …. #Nationals #Rockies
  • Toronto had a seemingly insurmountable mountain to climb in the the bottom of the ninth, but Pillar pounds Pounders, Norris lands with a thud against fierce Pearce and Angels flounder. #Angels #BlueJays
  • Lance didn’t have much of a chance today against the ferocious Tigers; Houston light years ahead in the AL West, but their starting pitching remains a bit of a question mark and games like this only embolden the doubters. #Astros #Tigers
  • Rays stay in Yankees’ rear view mirror with an excellent, group effort from winner Cishek and Co. #Rays #Yankees
  • Yes, the Royals are playing tough right now, but this was a costly loss for the Red Sox, blowing another super effort from Drew Pomerantz. And it doesn’t get any easier Monday for Boston, as the red hot Indians come to town. #Indians #RedSox

MLB Update:

  • It was High Noon in Boston, the chips were down, and things looked pretty bleak for the Beantowners, but Nunez, the San Francisco treat (2 hrs and the winning rbi), would have none of it. #RedSox #Royals
  • For a nice change of pace, Boyd fills the Tigers’ win column void. #Tigers #Astros
  • Mets finally quit their climb in the standings using Jacob’s ladder for success. #Mets #Mariners

  • More late game heroics by Gardner solidifies the changing of the guard in the AL East. #Yankees #Rays

MLB Update:

  • Suter’s shutout stint gives Milwaukee’s wounds some much needed sutures. #Brewers #Cubs
  • Toronto’s blue birds are afflicted by Bridwell flu and a nasty case of Cron’s disease. #Angels #BlueJays
  • Altered state for the suddenly great Phillies, who cruise to an easy win over Atlanta behind a huge game from Altherr. #Phillies #Braves
  • Buccos show, once again, that they aren’t really ready for prime time, with a first class lie down to the lowly Padres.

  • Cubs treated to a Schwarber shop quartet of ribbies against the oh so musty White Sox. #Cubs #WhiteSox
  • After mIddle-aged Gardner jacks one out in the 11th, young Judge jumps for joy and gets short in the tooth. #Yanks #Rays
  • Like sediment in the river, the apathetic A’s continue their drift to the bottom, while the Jays desperately look to ride the tide. #Jays #Athletics
  • For the horribly average Angels, Progressive Field remains a veritable Hell’s Kitchen, and their flimsy wild card contentions have of late been unmasked as a very questionable supposition. #Angels #Indians
  • Nationals make it official — the Brewers are officially washed up … and outta first. #Brewers #Nationals

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

MLB Update:

  • Like grim death — or should we say a persistent case of jock itch — the Mets just refuse to go away, and give their fans reason to pray. #Mets #Padres
  • TB manufactures another tight win against smiley Miley and the Orioles’ laugh of a staff. #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
  • Milwaukee appears to want to mill around some more in first place, but are they really serious? #Brewers #Nationals
  • Contrarian point of view holds sway at Wrigley in battle of Chicagoans. #WhiteSox #Cubs
  • Angry Giants get more than mad … they get even … behind the Madbum.  #Pirates #Giants

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

MLB Update:

  • Strange but true — Yankees muster up enough excellence to win their first series encounter in six weeks and are only a few games behind bumbling Boston….#Yankees #Mariners
  • Wil Myers and the rest of the Padre young guns continue to flex, while perplexed codgers from Frisco continue to misfire. #Padres #Giants
  • Strasburg labors, and leaves, but Nationals scrape together the pitching they need to douse the D-backs in the desert. #Nationals #Diamondbacks
  • Red Sox continue to tread water behind an unreliable offense. #RedSox #Angels
  • Rockies really pile on the runs in support of a sharp Kyle; Pirate revival stalls. #PIrates #Rockies
  • Brewer season continues to evaporate in the Phliadelphia fermenting tank. #Phillies #Brewers
  • Don’t blame automatic savior Britton for Baltimore’s fall from contention. #Orioles #Astros
  • Boxberger isn’t strong enough to stand up to rough treatment from Ranger Rougned. #Rangers #Rays
  • Miracle Mets no more, as guest Athletics had some assertive surprises in store. #Athletics #Mets
  • Kluber’s definitely finding his groove, and Cleveland seems to be making its move. #Indians #BlueJays
